The war in Iraq is pretty much won, but that doesn’t stop moonbats from sticking it to the military any way they can. The hippies infesting Arcata, California have passed a measure making it illegal for military personnel to discuss the merits of service with anyone under 18:
The law was the inspiration of former Arcata City Councilman Dave Meserve, who gained national attention after his 2002 election by spearheading a first-in-the-nation law making compliance with the USA Patriot Act illegal.
The council followed up with repeated resolutions calling for Bush’s impeachment and withdrawal of troops from Iraq. Meserve’s failure to win re-election in 2006 is generally attributed to voter weariness of his sometimes divisive activism.
Not easily deterred, in late 2007, Meserve began thinking about ways to re-engage his town against the war. He hit on military recruiting, which he saw as a link between war overseas and everyday life at home, and he decided that instead of going to the same activists or to the council, he’d go to the ballot.
Me-serve — what a perfect name for a typically self-serving progressive parasite.
The senseless measure — which the federal government will have overturned in court — is credited to the town’s “spirit of self-reliance and self-determination,” as if American soldiers die defending the rest of the country, but not Arcata.
Nice try, moonbats, but as insults to the military go, you’ll never top electing Barack Obama as Commander in Chief.
