'Progressives' HATE the Military

Berkely 2008

It seems that the insanity is spreading among the 'Progressive" political elite.

First it was Berkely City Council telling the Marines they were "uninvited and unwelcome guests" and that Marine recruiting stations would be treated the same as if they were Porno shops in their placement.

Then the Mayor of Toledo got his panties in a wad and cancelled a prescheduled Marine Reserve Urban Warfare training session in his city because it seems that while every other pertinent department in the city was aware of the excersize, they forgot to tell the Mayor ;The mayor asked them to leave because they frighten people. He did not want them practicing and drilling in a highly visible area.", according to the mayors spokesman.

Now it seems that one of the council members of Arcata, CA. (naturally california, land of fruits,nuts, and flakes...it's like living in a bowl of Granola!) has decided that Recruiters of any branch of the Armed Services shouldn't be allowed to actively recruit any person under the age of eighteen.

WHAT is it in the "Progressive" pschye that just doesn't "get it"? Truly they live in a dreamland of rainbows and Unicorns if they believe that our own Armed Forces are to treated as if they are the enemy.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) proposed legislation to rescind almost $2.5M in earmarks slated for Berkely in response to their actions in trying to "demilitarize" their city by booting Marine recruiters out. I Think Sen. DeMint should broaden the scope of his proposal and make it known to these smaller governmental units that if they want to participate in the money trough; they are expected to participate in the common defense. After all, that is one of the few Constitutionally MANDATED responsibilities of our government, unlike education, welfare, and a myriad of other federally funded programs.

That we have sunk so low as to have elected leaders ignore their duties, nay, not even KNOW their duties,makes me fear for our future. And this ignorance seems to reside for the greater part on the Left side of the aisle.
The last twenty years of "liberal"/PC education has left us with a large segment of the political class seemingly unaware of the realities of the real world. Theirs is a world of blaming the productive for their productivity and squeezing them dry to provide vote getting largess to spread among the unproductive and regarding our Military as, at best, a pesky relic from a past era.
After all, they reason, if we demonstrate that we truly wish only peace and harmony in the world (at OUR {taxpayor} expense, of course), no one can possibly want to bother us, much less want to harm us. And the World will gather by the fire and sing Kum-Ba-Ya as it roasts marshmallows in the ruddy glow.

Lord, save us from such perfidity and ignorance, for we seem incapable of doing it ourselves.

Brothers and Sisters, it may soon become incumbant to take it upon ourselves to water the tree of Liberty with the blood of those that would dessicate it with their ignorance and greedy lust for power, lest that tree wither and vanish from the face of the earth.

Gather your supplies and prepare to lock and load, I fear the time is all too near.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. Ronald Reagan
