Editors note: We do not stand behind the Occupy Wall Street Movement here at U.S. Constitutional Free Press. How can anyone stand behind such a violent, lazy, unethical movement where numerous drug overdoses, murders, rapes, sexual assault are occurring. Not to mention people masturbating in front of children and defecating in the streets.
An editorial in the Daily Times:
Recently, Quakers — the Religious Society of Friends — in Salisbury approved the following minute:
“Wicomico River Friends Meeting unites with the intentions of the Occupy movement to bring attention to the inequalities in our society and urge economic justice through nonviolent means.”
The Occupy movement calls attention to the failures of our government. Unceasing electioneering and an often corrupting influence of special interests are preventing our officials from doing the jobs we have hired them to do. This has led to ineffective regulations and poor enforcement that allowed a near collapse of our economy which we have not fully recovered from.
It seems appropriate to make this statement during this season of Thanksgiving. Despite a poor economy, we are grateful for the freedoms and bounty we enjoy. Even those among us who have the least have it better than many other places in the world.
That doesn’t mean some of our neighbors here aren’t suffering. A new shelter for the homeless just opened in Salisbury, a blessing to ease some of the need — but not all of it. We pray for a time when shelters are closing from a lack of need.
Social movements begin when society reaches a breaking point, forcing people into the streets with their anger and pain. The Occupy movement is young. It will take time for its leadership to evolve and coherent solutions to emerge to compete in the market place of ideas.
During this process we will be with them, praying for the success of the underlying goal which unites us: a more just and responsive government that better serves everyone.
We wish for all of our neighbors peace, prosperity and a happy Thanksgiving.

After reading this letter, one can only assume the Wicomico County Quakers stand for the kind of violent, sick, twisted and criminal behavior that the Occupy Wall Street Movement stands for. One then has to question, how can this group actually be part of the Quakers? Or in fact, are they part of the Quakers at all?
This is the type of behavior this fake religious organization backs………….
Sanitation officials said Wednesday that they expect to haul away 30 tons of debris from the Occupy L.A. encampment –- everything from clothing to heaps of garbage to oddball curiosities left behind by the protesters who lived at the City Hall tent city for two months.
Andrea Alarcon, president of the city Public Works board, said workers already have removed 25 tons of belongings from the City Hall park, all of it heading straight to a landfill.
Sanitation crews also have vacuumed up about 3,000 gallons of water that had washed into a catch basin in recent days and are testing it for hazardous materials, she said.
The sheer volume of personal belongings left behind after the early morning Los Angeles Police Department raid has astonished city workers: books and CDs, luggage and boom boxes, mattresses and dining chairs, cellphones, electric razors, a small red guitar with its neck snapped –- all surrounded by dozens of collapsed and empty tents.
A steady flow of people stopped by the park Wednesday to take photos and video and watch workers in white hazmat suits rake trash into neat piles.
As workers broke down tents and placed them in trash cans, Ramir Delgado, 25, snapped photos out of curiosity.
“It’s a shame how I see all trash around here,” he said. He pointed to his head. “People don’t understand that the freedom starts here in your mind.”
Delgado said he was disappointed in Occupy L.A.
“You know why this is filthy and not clean is there isn’t leadership,” he said.
A few feet away, crews in the hazmat suits raked trash of discarded protest signs, nail polish and jars of peanut butter.
“This looks like pure anarchy,” Delgado said, adding, “in a Hollywood way.”

Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe told The Daily Caller on Wednesday that he thinks Attorney General Eric Holder should resign over Operation Fast and Furious. Inhofe is the second U.S. senator to call for Holder’s ouster.
Georgia Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson called for Holder’s resignation on Tuesday. In addition to Inhofe and Isakson, 52 House members, three presidential candidates and two sitting governors have called for Holder’s immediate resignation over the gun-walking scandal.
The pressure appears to have gotten to Holder. On Tuesday he lost control when TheDC asked what he thought of the surge in calls for his resignation.
“You guys need to — you need to stop this,” Holder said at a White House event. “It’s not an organic thing that’s just happening. You guys are behind it.”
Subsequently, the White House refused to comment when TheDC asked if President Barack Obama plans to hold Holder to the same standard he applied to former attorney general Alberto Gonzales when Obama, then a U,S. Senator, demanded Gonzales’ resignation in 2007.
Inhofe told TheDC he thinks Holder’s reaction is a sign that the Obama administration and Holder have been “caught” doing something wrong and they don’t know how to deal with it other than to attack the messenger.
“Any time someone gets caught doing something like this, if they can [they] blame it on what they consider to be a minority,” Inhofe said. “And they consider the right wing to be minority, even though they’re wrong — if they can do that, they think they can somehow try to transfer the wrongdoing to another party in showing that they have a motivation for this to do things that are not honest.”
