L.A. does some crazy things. We have mass protests of illegal immigrants who wave flags of their homeland and demand American rights. We dump patients on Skid Row. We destroy historical landmarks and fill the air with pollutants.
But, we are not as dumb as Berkeley. Our neighbors to the North have decided they don’t want the Marines in their city. They don’t want them recruiting there, so they’re telling them to get out.
Republican lawmakers in Washington fired back this week, threatening to take back more than $2 million of federal funding to the city as well as money designated for the University of California-Berkeley, the campus that became a haven of protests during the Vietnam War.
In related news, Berkeley has outlawed alcohol, sex, cooking with gas, and holidays.
