Tech Central Station's James Miller has an amusing article on my city's supervisors recent vote against making the USS Iowa into a tourist attraction:

San Francisco's city supervisors voted 8-3 against allowing the USS Iowa to become a tourist attraction in their city. The battleship saw action in WWII, Korea and the Persian Gulf. One supervisor voting against the USS Iowa complained about the military's treatment of homosexuals, another objected to America's involvement in Iraq and said "I am sad to say I am not proud of the history of the United States of America since the 1940s."

The vote against the USS Iowa shows that San Francisco is being treated unfairly by the U.S. military. Our military defends the people of San Francisco even though the city's elected leaders want nothing to do with the military. All Americans should be horrified that the good leftists of San Francisco must suffer the crushing moral burden of being protected by a force their leaders so despise. I therefore propose that the U.S. armed forces withdraw their protection of San Francisco.
