In the end, it was Occupy Atlanta and an apparent sweetheart tax dodge that did in Anita Beaty and the Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless. "I'm going to enter an order to close the shelter in 10 days," Judge Craig Schwall told a packed courtroom just minutes ago, after two hours of heated arguments by attorneys. Then he called a 20-minute recess and walked back into his chambers even as Task Force lawyer Steve Hall was still calling out his objections.

I hope they can appeal it. It was Occupy Atlanta that managed to keep it open the last time.

I imagine somebody could find something on this "Judge". Time he had his dirty laundry aired.

It looks to me like they have spent an awful lot of money and time to shut this place down.

This is just sick.

Hey!!!!!!!!

Anyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You need proof of corruption ruining peoples lives???????????

Do you need another reason to band together for common cause in the promotion for health and prosperity for "All"?

This is not just about WallStreet and the greedy/corrupt there.

This is not just about the manipulation of the Federal government.

WallStreet & the Federal government are just the tip of the ice-berg. The extremely visible tip.

The mass of greed/corruption is much larger and runs much deeper than most want to see or can begin to imagine.

This is also the source of much of the resistance to our Movements for change.

This is why we are HERE. This is why we must not STOP.

We have an awful lot of work to do to reclaim our country.

We have no time to waste. The problem only gets worse with time!!!!!!!!!!
