As you probably know, Berkeley has done it again! Remember the post 9/11 debacle when they prohibited Fire trucks from flying the American flag? Now they have decided to harass the Marines out of the city. Here are some representative quotes from the city council members in meeting:
“Marines are the President’s own gangsters… they are trained killers” and that the "Marines are known for “death and destruction…and maiming” and give America “horrible karma.”
Did you see the video clips of the city council meeting? How about the video of Code Pink out of control forcing a physical confrontation?
Go to this link to see more of the story, videos and a petition to the City of Berkeley.

And, go to Senator Jim DeMint's site to voice support for his proposal to withdraw Federal funding for Berkeley:
United States Senator - Jim DeMint
and your US Senators' sites to support his proposed legislation to pull federal funding from that despicable excuse for a city.
Yes, I know it is disgusting and sickening, but don't turn away, the miscreants are ready to backpedal but don't give them relief, give them a dose of good ole "fed up to here with you!". A firestorm of outrage is needed to purge the disease festering in that place.
Berkeley needs to be sprayed with Terminix.

I just read an article this morning. It seems as though the Berkley mayor and some of the council are having second thoughts......and maybe it wasn't a good idea to try and kick the Marines out.
Sadly it's not a patriotic decision for them, they found out that there was an attempt to withhold $2.3 million in federal funds to the City of Berkley.
I can't really say anymore, I'd get kicked off the forum.
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
Even if they allow the Marines back in, federal funding should still be withheld for a minimum of one year. That 2.3 million should be used to set-up a state of the art recruiting facility somewhere inside city limits.
Take the Marines and the money out of the city and let it rot around their ears. In fact take the military out of both Berkley and San Fransisco and watch what happens.
I can't stand anything about California. The state itself is beautiful. All the idiots, hippies and tree huggers out there need to go fishing in a leaking boat.

I fight to defend their rights, so they can maintain a lifestyle that insults my existence.
Burn Berkley to the ground.
I might be off base here but seems to me that besides taking their money away. A lot of "code pink" the mayor and others should be facing not only some big fines but jail time as well.A war does not have to be declared, it can be acquiesced to by Congress or in other words a war is a war ......TITLE 18--CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE

Hard to believe they have Arnold for a governor! The only reason they changed their minds was the threat of losing federal fundings. They need to learn the consequences of their actions and lose the funding. No mulligans or do-overs in life for the rest of us, why should they get special treatment.
The worse thing is that all these Californians are flocking to Texas and trying to turn this place into the new California. But don't fear, we won't let them!
God Bless Texas! M2
