That city really isn't part of this country, some would argue they aren't even part of this planet. Berkeley, Marin, and some other places in that area have more flakes per square inch than any other place in the USA. Stands to reason they'd have flakes on the city council representing them. As someone already said, far tougher people than that bunch of bean sprouts have tried to get rid of our Marines. It didn't work for them either.
