BERKELEY, Calif. Local officials in this liberal city
say it's time for the U.S. Marines to move out.
The City Council has voted to tell the Marines their
downtown recruiting station is not welcome and
if recruiters choose to stay, they do so as uninvited and unwelcome
The measure passed this week by a vote of 8-1.
Now check this out, here is a letter a businessman wrote
to the Mayor of Berkeley. Is this a great country or what?
....................and this is the kind of response it
takes from Americans to stand up against the tide of apathy and self
serving idiots. http://www.anewtone.com/
I pasted the story in below, but you can see the site
story for yourself.
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
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
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, 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
