Does Trump have... you know... tank envy due to smallness issues?
They say a picture is worth a thousand words...


Let me guess, she was referring to her night out with Obama?

*shrugs*

I don't think it's a big deal. And I happen to be one of those who used to wear a uniform.

But if you hate the idea, please! don't attend.




Vet to vet you know it's gigantic waste of time and money for someone's ego.

He sht a stupid idea ,it's the equivalent of painting rocks white over and over again just because!!.



That's why I don't think it's all that big a deal.

If we're going to eliminate ego-driven things from DC, we'd cut the budget into a tenth of what it is.

edit to add; hahahaha, paint rocks white, paint rocks blue, paint rocks white, paint rocks blue.

If Donald wants to be able to sit up in his reviewing stand and see all the soldiers salute him as they march by... and see all the tanks and missiles and trucks... why doesn't he pay for the whole thing himself? The added security, police overtime, transportation of all the personnel and hardware, the whole damn thing.

So every country can have a military parade but America?

Sounds familiar.

Why would you want a military parade?

Seems like a waste of taxpayer dollars to me, or worse.



Waste of taxpayer dollars?

Like we don't piss away trillions anyways.

A Military parade is what gets you fiscally conservative. Never mind TARP or Q.E.

Hopefully you apply that budget knife everywhere.

Cool. We can drag out all of our World War II vets like they used to do with Civil War vets. Maybe get the Shriners to drive around in those little cars. Marching bands. Floats. Maybe an NRA float can toss out guns to all the kids along the parade route.

I'm thinking that parades should be reserved for when we've done something really great, like win a war. Or decided to have sex with somebody of the same sex. Or be Irish.

Exactly. It used to king of bug me a little when NASA would shoot some expensive probe somewhere to take pictures of some far-away planet just so we would know what it looked like. What's the point, I would ask. Then I thought about the billions of dollars that just get "lost" in the pockets of some cronies of whoever happens to be in office, and I modified my annoyance to think, "Well, what difference does it make? People get paid. It's a drop in the bucket. At least we get some cool pictures out of the deal."

Well, I don't want to be the one in charge of deciding what is dumb and what isn't. That way lies madness.

Times have changed....like they do.

Military parades used to be for 'banana republics,' the Soviets and the Chinese. They were usually associated with Communists and South American left-wing dictatorships. Nationalistic propaganda parades for nations on the wrong side of the power equation.

Just the logistics involved for a DC parade would be such a nightmare and costly. What would the TDY pay add up to for all those soldiers? How many days do the soldiers need to take away from their normal duties and training to practice and arrange for such a spectacle? Does trump want tanks and does he realize DC streets will be severely f'ed up if he does and after just how many underground pipes will need to be replaced?

During and at the end of WW2 we had a lot of parades. Of course, there was the victory parade, but the others were to give the public confidence while sending their sons off to battle on other continents. Afterwords yearly parades didn't catch on and there is probably a real good reason for it.

You can't make this crap up. Here's Pence bashing NK's military parade:


"Make no mistake about it, what we witnessed in Pyongyang, and we witnessed again yesterday, on the eve of the Olympics ... was once again an effort on the part of the regime in Pyongyang to display their ballistic missiles, to display a military that continues to make menacing threats across the region and across the wider world."


But when asked about Donald's idea he has a different take:


"I think any opportunity we have to celebrate the men and women of the armed forces of the United States is a great day," Pence said. "I heartily support the president's call to celebrate our military."


Are they truly that deaf-dumb-and-blind or have they come to learn that the rest of the country is?

Obviously you haven't been paying attention.

Actually, I do...
Navy SEAL Who Killed Bin Laden Calls Trump's Parade Plan 'Third World Bulls**t'
Edit to state that I'm glad to hear how everything is just tickety-boo for American vets, and they don't need the dough...my mistake.


O’Neill has a right to his opinion, but one man doesn't make the Navy, nor any other branch in the U.S. military.
It's ironic that O'Neill simply wants "to stop the conversation after he says what he wants". The common reply by left-wingers in every topic... Then you all want to point fingers at who you claim to be "tyrants" when the common response from the left in general is similar to what this one man has to say?... "Do what i say and that's it, the topic is settled"...

I am sorry but you are wrong.





The above are some examples of parades decades in the past.

The ones below are moe recent ones from around the 2000s-2018















Can you see how wrong you are?
