Let me first remove my brain so we'll be equals....

...is kinda what I would say to the dog-squeeze known as Code Pink.

The hateful Code Pink spokesmoron named Medea Benjamin was quoted as saying "Berkeley is a city of peace, and a recruiting station does not fit Berkeley's values."


What values?

Without a military to defend our God-given freedoms, Medea Benjamin and her merry band of feminazis wouldn't even be able to talk about values, hell they wouldn't even be able to talk about peace. Without a military to defend us, our country would be overrun with terrorists and others around the world who would love nothing better than to subdue and conquer the American people and every single good thing we stand for. And despite the troubles which face our nation, we have a lot of good things going for us, things that endure because we believe in them.

How quickly the anti-military radicals forget the great numbers of men and women who have fought and died for freedom in this country since before there was a United States! Thanks to millions of brave soldiers and sailors, Code Pink can march and protest in public. Thanks to millions of brave soldiers and sailors I can write this blog. Thanks to millions of brave soldiers and sailors, I can get the education I want, work in the kind of job I want, speak my mind without fear of retribution, practice my own chosen faith, enjoy financial success, and live the kind of life I CHOOSE.

It would be nice if the world was populated with nothing but good and decent people, but sadly it just isn't that way. There are some very bad, evil people out there who live for making other people suffer. Without an armed force to protect us, we would be overrun, we would be subdued, we would be conquered. And if that were to happen, it is highly likely the women of Code Pink would be among the many innocent women who would either be raped, beaten, forced into slavery, or murdered---just because they are women.

Code Pink would be better to march on Washington and attack the policymakers, not the men and women whose jobs it is to carry out that policy. Nobody likes war, but nobody dislikes it more than the soldier or sailor who has to leave their loved ones and their homes to fight it.
