Berkeley Biked Big Time! Scoots, Vets, Patriots Support Our Finest(The Eye Of Syncro)
The Institute of Phenomonology ^ | March 22, 2008 | Dr. Zoo

Posted on 03/22/2008 7:38:01 PM PDT by Syncro

A Hundred Thousand Motorcycle Riders (Well quite a few hundred) infiltrated Berkeley along with hundreds of others who drove cages and used other forms of transportation (Tunnels with Trains) in Support of our Troops and the Marine Officer Selection Recritiment Office in the California town that is trying to withdraw from the human race and The United States Of America.

Well, that's my take on the actions of Berkeley whose very existance depends on our country being well armed and manned by Military Personell.

I arrived about 11AM, although my camera thought it was 10

The speakers were scheduled to speak in an hour or so, and it looked like this around the office:





About an hour earlier the bikes thundered into town, one with Melanie Morgan of Move America Forward on the back and loving every minute of it on the ride from Emeryville to Berkeley.

She straightened out her hair and got down to business and gave a great speech and even mentioned the astounding opposition...about four of the cross dressing punks in pink. They stayed on the outskirts and didn't try much of their brave dissing of Military people, past and present. The must have judged the many attendees correctly...

The crowd was enthusiastic and brought some great signs in Support of The Troops.









The greatest "sign" of all, the Flag of The United States of America. They were everywhere!

That's the MCOSO in the background.



These Heroes stood in front of the Office for quite some time. Brave warriors from wars past.

Those "4.O" CPOs deserve a few more medals.

It takes big ones to do what they're doing and I'm quite sure they did not fail to make the right impression.

I'm so proud of these shipmates that chose to make the Navy their career.

I did a six year hitch out of High School and I know it accelerated my life!

There is nothing wrong with living an honorable life in the service of one's country. Actually, it's a priviledge.

What we see here is an example of honor, duty and sacrifice.

I just can't thank you all enough for showing Berkeley what True Patriots look like!! Berkeley should feel honored to have been in the presence of such greatness. They should. But... er... it's Berkeley.

Well, good enough anyway. They are sailormen and one can't expect too good of conduct, especially during the first few enlistments. :)

You know this has to discourage the liberals when conservatives turn out like this in Berkeley. I heard one on the radio lamenting the fact that liberals are sitting at home and don’t have the passion for the fight any more.

It was music to my ears to hear the liberals discouraged. Let’s keep it up!

I agonized over (well not really, but did consider) which to use.

But they are such big babies, I went with pampers.

I'm sure those big manly Motorcycles caused their insides to start to expel what they are mostly made of...

This guy...


...is the head of the Chamber of Commerce of Berkeley.

I was standing across the street from the Marine Office and he started talking to me.

About how these kind of events are ruining the businesses in Berkeley.

And that they are very damaging to the city.

I asked him if he lived in Berkeley, and he said no.

It was then that he told me he was head of the C of C.

He kept pretty much saying the same thing over and over while I tried to tell him why we came today.

And told him it wasn't us, but the code pink, ANSWER, World Can't Wait and various other commie groups that have disrupted his (his?) little town.

When I tried to impress upon him that it was the antagonizers of the Marine Office that he needs to have stop their subersive actions, he would interrupt me every time.

He would not entertain the thought of stopping code pink, etc, but was very negative about a Positive Support Rally for the Marine Office.

He would have none of it, and would only focus on our very Positive Troop Support Rally that is and has been ruining business in Berkeley. A true slimy politician.

When I mentioned that the news is out that he and the Mayor have mended fences and are united in purpose, he said Oh, that's what the media says, not what is really true.

So I asked him (he had that camera pointed at him all this time) what is the truth then, and he waffled and said that he had talked to the leaders of the rally a little earlier and I could ask them.

I told him, why not tell me with this camera here so we can know the truth.

He didn't want to go on record with any statement at all.

I backed away, and he did start talking to the camerawoman and I watched for a minute of so, and then the speakers started so I left him with the lady with the camera.

Her is A Link to an article from the Contra Coasta Times about the Chamber's meeting with the Mayor.

Yea, he is putting all the blame on ONE Military Support Rally in front of the office, but would not entertain the idea that it is the others that are out there every Wed and sometimes all week long that are causing the problem.

He doesn't seem interested in getting the City Council and the Mayor to stop supporting the loony leftists which is what is ruining their city.

They (the council and the chamber) are their own worst enemies.

The chamber and the mayor are BFF's now, so they can reap their whirlwind.

My last picture of the day

This is my favorite picture of all of them today.

The guy on the right is buckled over, and balances nicely the bicyclist on the left.

The counselor sign, the two small flags.

Iwo Jima.

The large flag.

The Betsy Ross lady.
