Berkeley to Marine Corps: You're Not Welcome
Thursday, January 31, 2008

BERKELEY, Calif. ? Local officials in this liberal city say it's time for the U.S. Marines to move out.

The City Council has voted to tell the Marines their downtown recruiting station is not welcome and "if recruiters choose to stay, they do so as uninvited and unwelcome guests."

The measure passed this week by a vote of 8-1.

The council also voted to explore enforcing a city anti-discrimination law, focusing on the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

In a separate item, the council voted, also 8-1, to give protest group Code Pink a parking space in front of the recruiting office once a week for six months and a free sound permit for protesting once a week.

Marine Capt. Richard Lund of the recruiting office declined comment on the council action.

The recruiting office opened in Berkeley about a year ago, operating quietly until about four months ago when Code Pink began regular sidewalk protests.

"I believe in the Code Pink cause. The Marines don't belong here, they shouldn't have come here, and they should leave," said Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates.

Code Pink is circulating petitions to get a measure on the ballot in November making it more difficult to open military recruiting offices in Berkeley if they are near homes, parks, schools, churches, libraries or health clinics.

Some employees and business owners aren't happy with the weekly protests.

"My husband's business is right upstairs, and this (protesting) is bordering on harassment," Dori Schmidt told the council. "I hope this stops."

Shameful!

Once something horrible happens over on THAT side they'll finally wake up and get the flowers out of their a$$e$.

Why bother spelling out a$$e$ in code when you openly type "****" (obviously in reference to homosexuals)?

Also...im not defending "code pink" or anything but wouldn't you say that your first sentence is just a BIT of a generalization...even bordering on prejudice even? Not arguing here...but really now.

So esentially what your saying is the amount of homosexual people in the state of california surpasess the hederosexuals?...."full of ****" would suggest thats what you mean. Correct? Or did you mean to take the non-narrow minded approach stating that California has a high percentage of homosexuals...and perhaps tripped on your tounge? Thats just like me saying that everyone who writes "deep withing the marinas trench" under their avatar has small genitals. Wouldnt you say?

So much hate....homophobic are we?

I know...You must have kissed another boy when you were little so now you have to act like you hate all gays to make yourself feel better right? I knew it, just likeitreallyis

WTF is up with Cali anyway................not too long ago San Fran wouldn't let the Marines film a recruiting commercial either. But, they let the film crews film the scenes as long as there were no Maraines in it. Said they could superimpose them in later............WTF
:mad:

Its a total disgrace. Fortunately they can't apply local law to the U.S. Government. Ever wonder why the post ofice doesn't follow local zoning laws?
The Post Office is not a govenment run agency. Common misconception.
