Another one:

Trump cancels military parade, blames D.C. officials for high cost

But your supporters never cared about the price tag Mr President.

I think it's funny that Trump made a proper fiscal decision and you declare victory.

It was supposed to be a parade for a certain event.

Instead of telling the truth about it you ascribe it to "celebrating Donald Trump's ego"

He's not the one in need of South American socialist dictatorship style parades. That's the Democratic socialist left.

That's you guys.

It's funny that many of the posters on here didn't seem to care about the price tag, in fact they went out of their way to justify it. Never questioned it.

I think you have a bigger gripe with them on the matter of 'fiscal responsibility' instead of the OP that brought it to attention. But hey... hey.... why would I expect any better of you project...? You're head deep in the Trump swamp yourself.

I'm sure.

Because that is the real truth.

After 8 years of pretending to care about the constitution, the economy, fiscal conservatism, liberty, a complete 180 the second Don Cheeto took office. To think I actually believed there was a degree of honesty behind any of those beliefs from you and others here. For shame.

Apparently, you're not sure, since you and every other leftist uniformly repeats a political narrative that does not appear to apply in reality.

Trump is just making up for Obama's devitalizing the military. And like some others here have said, suddenly liberals are worried about taxpayer spending. But then liberals hate ALL military spending. Ive seen the griping on lots of social media over the years. It's ironic that the defense of our country is mentioned expressly in the Constitution as the responsibility of our government. Somehow liberals imagine that social welfare and spending is the job of government. In other words, libs have it bass ackward.

I suppose that's why he backed off and cancelled this $92 billion parade of his?

General Bone Spurs knows nothing about serving patriotism. Only himself.


suddenly liberals are worried about taxpayer spending.


And suddenly conservatives don't I suppose?

Sky high deficits.

Sky high military spending.

Sky high tax payer money on himself.

But you're more worried about what liberals are worried about?


But then liberals hate ALL military spending.


Yes yes yes, calls for responsible spending on the military means we must hate spending anything on them right?



And guess what? Another extra $60 billion coming their way as well thanks to the GOP congress.

Calling out the utter waste to the tunes of billions on blackhole projects? But good lord any criticism and you're against the military or something right?

Predictable as per usual.

Your own hypocrisy is so deeply ingrained in everything you say it is hard to separate out anything meaningful within it.

You applauded the last president who racked up obscene federal spending and debt, but now you condemn the current president for cancelling spending? Oh! Yes that makes sense now. You are peeved because Trump decided NOT to spend that money on the parade. You like wasteful spending because of the former Obama lessons!

This all makes sense now.

Enough about me now. How about the topic in the OP? How do you feel about a $92 million military parade?

What's the point of asking how we feel about a parade that's been cancelled? You just reminded me of "Clinton's Good War in Kosovo his humanitarian effort to fix civil war and ethnic cleansing. Why is it that liberals applaud "humanitarian interventions" in other people's civil wars??? Yet deplore the current Potus for his containment of saber rattling foreign countries by talks ? Why Libs applaud fixing other people's problems yet balk at the idea that our military is here for the purpose of defending our own country? Why Libs continually bash the GOP for military spending but have no problem sending out troops out to meddle in places like Kosovo, Bosnia, Libya, and Syria?

Why would the POTUS be planning a trip over to France on the US Veterans' Day ? Shouldn't the Commander in Chief be with his own military and veterans on that specific day ?



Maybe to honor the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI and the 116,516 deaths and approximately 320,000 sick and wounded of the 4.7 million U.S. men who served.

You'd be bitching about Trump's actions on this no matter what he did, let's be honest.


Strange how the Libs won't even let this Potus celebrate the victory over fascism....just goes to show they will criticize no matter what he does.

Um.. what?

Trump is the one who on a whim, decided he wanted a tanks driving down the street, show off our missiles and troops type of parade. Solely based on a single parade by France. Talk about easily influenced and having a dick waving battle. There is no need for a military parade. It won't "inspire morale." It's ridiculous and a waste of time and money.

And yet.. somehow, Trump's constituents manage to spin it like TRUMP IS SAVING US MONEY!? Just LMAO.

And manage to make it sound like it is a "left" issue. Wow.. Cap'n, deflectors on FULL POWER! You can't make this crap up.
