Berkeley $2M to the Marines?
One giant sign said, "No Military Predators in Our Town." Another message on a pink placard read, "Join the Marines. Travel to Exotic Lands. Meet Exciting and Unusual People -- And Kill Them."
This is what protesters in Berkeley are writing on their signs. And now, lawmakers in DC introduced the Semper Fi Act of 2008 - which would take $2M rom Berkeley funds and transfer it to the Marines. And I say- more power to them!
What kind of morons are these protesters? (Rhetorical question!) Do they think that the Marines are some kind of lawless militia that just decided to go to Iraq and kill people? That they are not a branch of the US military, which takes order from the US Government? Do they teach basic government in California public schools?
Thank God that we live in a country where if you have a beef against our foreign policy you have the ability to influence it. Write your government officials, but don't go out there verbally abusing young men and women that are only doing their duty.
