Um, yeah LOL and whatever, but how about some actual backstory to what could basically just be a dumb joke that was never actually filed?

I think this is the backstory.

> I think this is the backstory.

See, now that's actually an interesting blog which I've added to my RSS reader. I usually never bitch about single link mystery meat type stuff, but just a random PDF is really not so good.

At some point, you go past the point of contempt of court and on to court jester.

While I appreciate the sentiments expressed in the petition, I'm going to have to toss this case out of court for overuse of the word "bitches". It shows that the plaintiff likely didn't actually attending college or use the borrowed funds for any sort of education.

Thanks for the backstory link - it helps so much with the wtf stuff. Apparently this was rebuked, and he then filed a certiorari with the Supremes.
Googling for Paul Hupp turns up (ha!) some interesting stuff, and it looks like he's been fighting paying for at least 3 years, such as this from Law.com.

You cocksuckers are now on notice.

Who needs backstory? I'm pretty sure this is Kenny Powers fan fiction.

Threatening a judge is a felony, no? Perhaps he's trying to get a felony on his record so he'll have a real case for having the student loans forgiven due to hardship.

Hey, as a bitches-using Masters-educated professional, I object!

Thanks for this. I am sending it immediately to a prosecutor friend with request to "please review".

20 U.S.C. § 1095a- Wage Garnishment without Due Process of Law- 20
U.S.C. § 1095a is unconstitutional because it allows wage garnishment without a court order or due process of law. I guess it is OK for this Court to allow such to acts to happen to the public, as long as it is the poor and those least able to fight back. Wrong bitches.
Holy shit is this funny. Yes, it's "steering-the-ship-into-the-iceberg" funny. But it's still funny.

God damn cocksucker motherfucker.

Second, let Plaintiff make this very clear hear and now at the beginning of this petition-this Court is now on notice that public will no longer tolerate violations of the Constitution, by the Congress or the judges/judiciary that think they can rig the system, violating basic constitutional rights (such as due process of law) and engage in these acts with impunity

I've noticed that the ridiculous "you're on notice" threat is only used by people who have no idea whatsoever what such an "or else" threat might entail.

I just want to know how the MeFi Offence-o-Meter rates "slimeball", "piece of shit" and "ass clown" I'm particularly worried about the possible offence that "slimeball" might give to hyperhidrotic monorchids.

The California Commission On Teacher Credentialing Blocked Plaintiff's Ability To Get His Teaching Credential -- Rendering The College Education Financially Worthless

Many things in the California State government are badly, badly broken. The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing apparently is not one of those things.

Huh, so apparently I pulled up this PDF on my work computer, read it, and went to court without closing it. I hope no one walked by office and thought I was drafting this.

Yes, this has been passed around by attorneys for a couple of days. What makes it funny is that the author knows enough to make it look like a standard legal document. Heck, he's a much better drafter than Orly Taitz.....

Also, I'm surprised he hasn't gotten a visit from the feds. Bad form to threaten the judges with civil unrest and personal visits five or six times.

I had to restrain myself from using language similar to this, in the last 24 hours. The subject of dissent was higher education. Since Hunter S. Thompson migrated out of this pointless existence, no one has come along to replace him, as the surrogate bearer of my occasional, impotent rage.

"You Bitches are on notice" is a phrase one can never use in graduate school, or on a faculty. Mr. Hupp is dying on a cross of words for all of us, who use societally necessary restraint, on a daily basis. It is my perception that life is despoiled living in submission to what is convenient, and polite, often in the face of gross misconduct, and everyday stupidity.

I am not blind to the fact that life could always be worse, that life is worse in many times and places. However this is about the money. The current war on the middle class is about the moneyed taking more, and teachers are bedrock to sustaining middle class values. Mr. Hupp apparently sinned in wanting to join the middle class, but he is not going to like the continuous diet of regurgitated pap, called business English, and I can't see him attending a faculty meeting, ever. If he ever does, I want to be there.

Mr. Hupp apparently sinned in wanting to join the middle class

According to the above-linked article:

In addition to a B.A. in Education, [Debtor] possesses a substitute teaching credential, a real estate sales associate license, [a] law enforcement academy certificate, an associate of arts degree, and a J.D. . . . [He] provided no evidence concerning why he could not work in the legal field, but rather testified that "I didn't really go to law school to actually be a lawyer."

That's a lot of sins.

I like that the word count for "impunity" is right up there with "bitches" and "shit".

Having been schooled during a certain era in Canada, I found the transition from "My Lord" to "Your Honour" difficult.

Ass Clown was right out.

I'm torn, in that I also feel like the student loan setup in this country is a giant scam and too few of us will do anything about it. The fact that this guy is off his rocker just means that his crazy allows him to say it in a hilarious yet saddening fashion.

I hope he gets mental help if not legal relief.

Laughed my ass off! This couldn't have come at a better time for me. I've been writing a statement which I intend to be read into the record at a hearing I have to attend this week regarding child support. It was nice to see someone else say the things I really would like to say to the court, but of course I know better. I suppose, though, if I am unable to prevail I may consider resorting to some of Mr. Hupp's entreaties... but I'm hopeful.

It can get damned frustrating trying to get a large bureaucratic organization to follow even their own rules and regulations as written, when it is eminently clear that they apply. Especially if it causes you to be so poor you literally can't even pay your own phone and power bills. Try to respectfully plead your own case and you're told to sit down and shut up. Your problems are irrelevant to them. The law as well. They either have no oversight, or the people charged with oversight are in on the game.

Things like I am going through can cause a person to really want to resort to language like that. And then some.

I read the link above which gives some more insight into his legal history, and it sounds like he's been working up to something like this for a while. I guarantee you that guy should be seeking mental health treatment. I did, and he and I really aren't all that far apart some days. But I am at least calm enough to be able to take time and consider my language before I speak. Mostly, anyways.

if it's civil unrest, does that mean he has to stop calling them bitches?

There is power in the vernacular. Although obvious that Mr. Hupp was hanging himself on a cross by way of insult, it's refreshing to see someone so thoroughly deconstruct the propriety and order of the court - a propriety and order that is too-often used by the powerful, to throttle the weak. r, Hupp made me laugh, and at the same time reminded me how the deck is stacked.
