This is unbelievable, well maybe it is considering the location.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Attention all terrorists, you can have Berkley as long as you leave the rest of us alone In fact, use the Code Pink parking space, since the building in front of it will be unoccupied shortly.

Note to all sane persons in the Berkley area, leave before the madness spreads hehe.

Regardless of what party you belong to, this type of lawmaking is bordering insanity.

If you don't like Faux, I guess you will have to go to cable to get the good old Dan Rather viewpoints.

PS I was born there (on a good day)

LouInSD, since your political views do not allow you to look outside your own realm, here is the copy of the minutes from the City of Berkley's own council website which confirms the story as told on the original link.

http://www.ci.berkeley.ca.us/upload...in_Berkeley.pdf

Anyway, this is going way overboard for a city council, IMO.

since your political bias does not allow you
Nothing to do with political bias...Faux News viewers are some of the most misinformed morons on the planet...

http://www.turnoffyourtv.com/networ...ws/foxnews.html

http://www.thecarpetbaggerreport.com/archives/714.html

Almost shocking was the extent to which Fox News viewers were mistaken. Those who relied on the conservative network for news, PIPA reported, were “three times more likely than the next nearest network to hold all three misperceptions. In the audience for NPR/PBS, however, there was an overwhelming majority who did not have any of the three misperceptions, and hardly any had all three.”

Looking at the misperceptions one at a time, people were asked, for example, if the U.S. had discovered the alleged stockpiles of WMD in Iraq since the war began. Just 11% of those who relied on newspapers as their “primary news source” incorrectly believed that U.S. forces had made such a discovery. Only slightly more — 17% — of those who relied on NPR and PBS were wrong. Yet 33% of Fox News viewers were wrong, far ahead of those who relied on any other outlet.

Likewise, when people were asked if the U.S. had “clear evidence” that Saddam Hussein was “working closely with al Queda,” similar results were found. Only 16% of NPR and PBS listeners/viewers believed that the U.S. has such evidence, while 67% of Fox News viewers were under that mistaken impression.

Overall, 80 percent of those who relied on Fox News as their primary news source believed at least one of the three misperceptions. Viewers/listeners/readers of other news outlets didn’t even come close to this total.

Ok, so did you read the city council minutes I linked then? Do you agree with their use of power in this case? This isnt a Fox news thread anyway. I gave a secondary source of the info, which happened to be from the horses mouth, and you come back with a tangent attack on Fox news. I could care less for Fox news, CNN, MSNBC, etc. In order to get anything near the truth you almost have to listen to them ALL and find the middle ground between their extremes.

Anyway, whats your take on the topic of this thread?

I think that barring the recruitment office is a severe overuse of power. If a person living in Berkley wishes to join the Marines and speak with recruiters about it - who are these people to remove the very office in which this gets done? There are still many in this country that think its honorable to be in the armed forces. I have the upmost respect for our Marines and waht they do. Bullying them out of the city is nothing but disrespect to every Marine that ever served our country - regardless of peoples view on current events.

I hate Berkeley. People on the far left of the political spectrum piss me off just as much as far right conservatives.

Why do people who like to identify themselves with the tough Marines always get so melodramatic? It has nothing to do with the troops themselves and I hate when people like you hide behind that tired line. Its disingenuous and phony and cowardly...

If the people on that city council believe the Iraq war is morally wrong, as many Americans do, they think it is the right thing to do something about it. I dont know if you know how recruiters do their job but its something akin to what a used car salesman does.

Many of the guys who enter the service are poor and have no other alternatives. This is what people are against, using poor people who have no other alternatives as cannon fodder for terrorists in a campaign that seems to be going nowhere. Were you even alive during Vietnam?

If you believe something is immoral, the right thing to do is to do something about it...that's what they're doing...

So when a small town or smaller city tries to get rid of an abortion clinic, you are all right with that?

Lie Lie Lie. Anything to get their numbers. I myself was a young, naive victim but still don't regret my decision to serve. It was quite an experience!
