Entitled bastards


Washougal squatters do not intend to leave

Brett, nearly 22, and his 23-year-old brother Michael are squatters

WASHOUGAL, Wash. (KOIN) — Brett Marquiss smiled and laughed when he talked about where he lives in Washougal.

“This is our home town and we like it and we’re here to stay,” he said of the house on Aberdeen Drive, a few miles from downtown.

Brett, nearly 22, and his 23-year-old brother Michael are squatters. They’ve been squatting at this house for a while, since their parents were the last renters and moved out.

“We haven’t done anything really illegal. We’ve just moved in and everything,” he said. “Maybe we are squatters but we still have rights.

Neighbor Carla Baines told KOIN 6 News the house went into foreclosure around the time the brothers’ parents moved out.

The owner, Sarah Lightner, lives in Winthrop, Washington, about 8 hours north. Serving an eviction notice would cost her about $1500, money she told KOIN 6 News in an email she doesn’t have.

“We’re in a completely gray area and nobody wants to take responsibility for the home,” Baines said.

“Because (Lightner) walked away from the property and gave it up for foreclosure, she has no motivation at all the spend the money to help us,” Baines said.

Another neighbor, Jim Bybee, said sometimes the Marquiss brothers shoot guns at night and race cars around the house.

Brett Marquiss doesn’t see the problem. “If it’s during the day, I don’t see what the big deal is, you know?”

Neighbors also say the brothers are picking the place apart and selling it online — trees and perimeter fencing, among other items.

“I don’t know why they thought that we were selling it,” Marquiss said.

The fact the house is in foreclosure and an eviction notice is not imminent means they will likely stay at the house for a while.

Da Bibble!


The problem with God is that only the most simplistic person can believe the incredibly primitive suppositions that the theological community has attributed to the myth. I am not the brightest bulb in the pack, but I find it impossible to believe the obvious bullshit contained within the fairy stories of this Bronze age tome. I have encountered seemingly rational people who insist that the stories of the Beeble are actually occurrences with factual basis. As the rational thinking person knows, the bible is, in fact, the most contradictory, contrived piece of crap fiction ever foisted upon the virus known as mankind. 

Fairy stories do endure in the face of the harsh realities facing the human race. This only because the reality of taking responsibility of one’s own life usually is too much for the average human to comprehend. To be responsible takes pragmatism and sensibility, something that the devout usually do not posses. Giving in to myth usually means that you can abdicate responsibility to an anthropomorphized GOD who, of course, knows exactly how you think and feel and will eventually validate your problematic flawed way of fucking up your life! 

The actual reality of the matter is that you will be held accountable for the fuckups that you have caused and you will suffer the wrath of those that you have fucked over in the name of your religious fairy cocksucker in the sky! Please note that I am not tyrying to judge, and that you hold the key to going and fucking yourself! My advice is to un-fuck yourself and rely upon yourself and reality to pull you through, so give GAWD the heave-ho and trust yourself!!
