Miserable Life for Berkeley Marines, Council Promises

In a 7-2 vote, the Berkeley City Council chose to ignore the problem they created two weeks ago when they sent a letter to the Marine Corps recruitment office saying the Marines were 'uninvited and unwelcome intruders'. The letter also told the Marines to get out of town.

Now, says the Council, the Marines can stay...sorta.

In a 1 A.M. vote the council

- recognizes "the recruiters' right to locate in our city and the right of others to protest or support their presence,"

- opposes "the recruitment of our young people into this war,"

- encourages "all people to avoid cooperation with the Marine Corps recruiting station."

But no apology.

And welcome to the bizarre world called Berkeley.

The life of Indigo Red is full of adventure. Tune in next time for the Further Adventures of Indigo Red.

Do those council members and Pink Horde believe our "rights" have been given to us without a fight?

I'm wondering... will the Pink Horde be the ones to protect the citizens of Berkeley in times of need?

Yes, they do. That's the problem with utopianism.

I have been blogging about this crap since it started.

I am so outraged by the City Council in Berkeley I called every member and the Mayor's office and told thier secretaries to pass along a message that Our Marine's deserve and Apology!!

I'm not going to let up om them till the do.

What do you think? Do they deserve a phone call a day from a Peed off lady in Oklahoma?

I think they do ;->

Yeah, sure, why not? They won't listen, though. The People's Republic of Berkeley is not open to contrary ideas. They are the epitomy of intollerance.
