Berkeley Votes to Boot Marines - Update

Mark Williams on Fox News just called Berkeley the "Left wing cesspool of America."

Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina has just called for over 2 million dollars of federal earmarks to be pulled out of funding for the city of Berkeley.

“This is a slap in the face to all brave service men and women and their families. The First Amendment gives the City of Berkeley the right to be idiotic, but from now on they should do it with their own money. If the city can’t show respect for the Marines that have fought, bled and died for their freedom, Berkeley should not be receiving special taxpayer funded handouts. I am currently drafting legislation to ensure that American taxpayers aren’t forced to pay for this insult by rescinding all of the earmarks for Berkeley in the Omnibus Appropriations bill, and to transfer the funds to the Marine Corps.”

It's not every penny of federal money that we all pay to support Berkeley, but it is a start. Next they should close the post offices. After all, if the Marines have to go, then the post office should go also.

Thanks for your support! I love the high desert! You live in a great place that should not be forced to support Bezerkeley freaks.

We need to cut all those losers out of our tax dollars.

I live in Placer County (but work in Upstate NY) and people in both places have had it up to here with the fairy nutcakes of Code Pink.

Keep up the good fight!
