Send in the Marines

Category: , By GotDesign
I couldn't believe this story when I saw it on Fox News. It seems that the city of Berkeley, CA has decided that the U.S. Marine Corps recruiting office in Berkeley is considered an invasion.
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 city council also voted to give Code Pink -- a ultra-liberal anti-war protest group -- a permanent parking spot in front of the recruiting office. In addition, they've also authorized immunity from noise laws for the purpose of protesting.

Hopefully, we'll see what a federal district court thinks about the issue. But, knowing that portion of the country, the district will probably side with Berkeley. More justification for judicial reform.
