    Berkley to Marines: "Y'all ain't welcome heah"

    Now check this out, here is a letter a businessman wrote to the Mayor of Berkeley.

    Is this a great country or what?


    Dear Mayor Bates,

    In that you and your city have chosen to gravely insult the brave men and women, who have indeed bought you that right with their blood, I am informing you that my company will no longer do business with any of our current suppliers located in the Berkeley, California metro area.

    In that my company is in international resort real estate development, and do business with and am associated with, developers and investors worldwide, I am informing all of my contacts, associates and patrons that we will no longer do any business of any sort with anyone living in the Berkeley area.

    In that we/MDG Resorts are currently building a state of the art mega-yacht marina, all of the suppliers of Marina equipment, all owners of Yachts , all suppliers of Yacht materials & supplies, all yacht brokers and all tangential yacht business purveyors will likewise be informed that we will not do any business whatsoever with anyone from the Berkeley area.

    Likewise all suppliers of building materials, both interior and exterior, currently associated with any of our several resort developments (Brisamar 300+ villas and 200+ condos: Porto Hussong, www.portohussong.com 500+ condos, 180 slip mega-yacht marina) both of which I might add have international recognition by virtue of glowing reports in Robb Report, Wall Street Journal, Yacht World, Forbes.

    I will likewise inform all of our investors, most of whom are very wealthy yacht owners, casino owners, high net worth international businessmen, of our decision to essentially boycott all products and providers located in, or associated with in any way whatsoever, Berkeley, Ca.

    Trust me when I say that having been in the real estate development business for over 35 years, our list of contacts and associates is long and very, very impressive. We, and I personally, are going to recomend that they ALL along with us boycott your city, its purveyors, suppliers, and businesses and CHARITIES of every kind.

    You have every right to choose to take the obnoxious anti-military stance you have taken, and as stated, that right was bought for you with the blood of better men than you.

    I too have every right to do all that I can to insure that your city suffers consequences arising from that obnoxious, sickening stance.

    Cordially,

    Brian G Dennard

    I love their timing especially on Super Tuesday. :yes: :lol:

    Idiots.

    Anyways they're already falling all over themselves trying to clean this up:

    http://www.sfgate.com/flat/archive/2008/02/05/chronicle/archive/2008/02/05/BAHVUS06B.html?tsp=1

    On local TV I was disgusted at how this was presented as a "story". Then again that's nothing new. Imagine if this were say a pro-gun rights rally. The left would be screaming for Berkeley PD to start arresting people but instead the City of Berkeley actually issued a permit for Code Pink to have a permanent parking place directly in front of the recruitment center as well as a lengthened protest permit (for lack of the actual permitted term).

    Somebody needs to remind these insecure, over-emotional paste eaters that yes freedom of speech is to be respected and exercised but there are inherent responsibilities that go along with that cherished freedom.

    Most of us have never fought in combat and whether or not we agree with this war we either keep our mouths shut until we've won or until our troops come home or we focus our displeasure on our politicians and not our people who are dodging bullets and IEDs.

    Huge step backwards for the left IMO especially on a day when the market got hammered and no one cares because of the political news of the day.

    Like I said they're idiots. :yes:

    A Special Forces friend of min has a great idea-

    Major Corporation Spanks Anti-Marine Berkeley Calif. Officials w/Boycott


    Upon receipt of this email below I called Mr. Dennard and personally thanked him for taking the initiative to do this.

    Suggest anyone else who wants to do so do the same. Sounds like a very good fellow.

    Respectfully, the REST of the state of California does NOT agree with the drooling, backwards-thinking, myopic, blinders-wearing, narrow-minded, better-than-thou leaders of the town of Berzerkeley. If they tried to secede from the rest of the state, I would let them go. It is an island of idiots unto itself.:icon_evil:

    So much for freedom of speech..........I guess that only applies to the left-wing lunatic-fringe enviro-Nazi hippie types.

    As the mother and mother-in-law of a pair of brave soldiers who are serving their country in Iraq as we speak, I find these actions nothing short of insulting. It's all very easy to wave signs and protest when it's not YOUR flesh and blood in harm's way, fighting and risking her/his life for you and for every one of us. And don't even get me STARTED on the people who vote against funding the troops adequately..........

    You know what's funny? These paste eaters are throwing out the usual left wing garbage about how they're recruiting the poor yada yada yada (you know the rest). Thing is this is an officer recruitment center so I would think that they are targeting Cal Berkeley students and not the poor people in that area. Like I said they're idiots and their followers buy it without doing any research whatsoever yet at the same time they call people that follow Fox News and Rush Limbaugh sheeple. They're as bad as those they criticize. :icon_shrug: :lol:

    They get the government they deserve.

    Exactly.

    That's what these low lifes need to get through their thick skulls.

    You can disagree with the war all you like but aim your venom at the politicians who choose to go there not the soldiers who are putting their lives on the line and merely doing what their superiors tell them to do.

    **** like this disgusts me.
