Bravo boycott?

Bravo to all those righteous companies and individuals that are choosing to boycott Berkeley-based businesses in light of our city’s resolution in favor of peace. There is no nobler way to force your views onto others than by driving good people out of business and ruining their lives. Even if it was 25 years ago, they should have known better than to open their business in Berkeley! 

I originally had no idea that the prospect of lumberyard managers and restaurateurs (and waiters and waitresses and busboys) being able to pay their rents was such a threat to our national security and unity. Thank you for enlightening me. 

It’s a good thing that when you have God and the president on your side, you don’t have to think about things like whom you are hurting.
