Madame Speaker,Berkeley, California has fallen off the deep end and it wasnt caused by an earthquake either.

The city council passed a resolution telling the local US Marine Corps recruiting station that is was not welcome in the city and if recruiters choose to stay, they do so as uninvited and unwelcome intruders.

Mayor Tom Bates said, The Marines dont belong here, they shouldnt have come here and they should leave.

Shame on Mayor Bates. He has flippantly and pompously denounced those noble few the proud the chosen the Marines that represent everything that is good and right about America. These defenders of democracy deserve better than Berkeleys arrogant disapproval.

Berkeleys deplorable anti-Marine city leaders must still have a 60s Peacenik hippie mentality that world peace can occur by sitting around smoking dope and banging on the tambourine.

Berkeley should lose all federal funding for their smug denouncement of the Marine Corps, because patriotic Americans should not subsidize cities that tell the Marines to get out of town.

As for the Marines well take em all in Texas! Well have a parade, fly the flag, and sing the Marine Hymn.

Semper Fi.

And that's just the way it is.
