If you agree, please sign this petition.

The petition

We, the undersigned condemn the Berkeley City Council’s treasonous attack on US Marine Recruiters stationed in their city. We ask that Congress cut off funds from any and all municipal entity within the confines of the city of Berkeley, California, until such time as the city council withdraws it’s action.
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 last 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 the Marxist 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.

If you wish to, please share with your friends or e-mail to your address books.

6,173 2% Biden, "Joe" - 136,927 36% Clinton, Hillary - 1,925 1% Dodd, Christopher J. - 13,028 3% Edwards, John - 1,405 0% Kucinich, Dennis J. - 220,501 57% Obama, Barack - 4,253 1% Richardson, William "Bill"
Very bad.

It seems that Mrs. Clinton may not become the democrats standard-bearer, after all.

Welcome aboard on our maiden voyage

Welcome to my blog. I intend to be straightforward about my opinions and analysis of current events through the prism of my lifetime experiences. Agree or disagree, but I hope you will maybe learn something, share your opinions with me and discuss our changing world with myself and my guests. Most of my posts will probably be about politics, the military, our economy, books and food. Feel free to share with us your experiences, joy, pain and wisdom as we travel together on this big blue ball.
