Okay, So This Is Just Petty
The prod that woke this bedroom community at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains, whose 2005 population city officials estimate at 50,860, was a decision by San Francisco voters to pass an advisory measure banning military recruiters from schools.
Calling San Franciscans a bunch of “kooks and nuts” and castigating supervisors for their “tomfoolery,” the City Council unanimously approved a resolution “prohibiting the expenditure of city funds for attending conferences, training seminars and/or workshops to be held in the City of San Francisco.”
I’m not even sure that’s legal – but it IS funny.
“I was raised in Kentucky and everybody all over that area calls California ‘the land of the kooks and nuts’ or ‘the left coast’ because of the things that happen in San Francisco,” said [City Councilman] McCallon.
That’s not true! I think they call us Granola because what ain’t fruits and nuts is just flakes, right? (Oh save the angry comments, that’s just sarcasm, kids). Dude should get his insults right.
I think Highland is just protective of the military because the community got its start as the home of famous navel oranges.
Hey, they can’t all be winners . . . .
