You need to put in the disclaimer that, to you, this is about Trump.

Or maybe not... watching your posts it seems EVERYTHING is about Trump.

You need to come out of the closet eventually... you will feel better.

At least you are not claiming it is for the soldiers.

NO soldier wants to waste his time and energy marching dress right dress for some high n mighty muckity muck.

Unless soldiers have seriously changed they don't like anything remotely close to what amounts to an inspection.

You want a military coup?

Really?

You want the guys with the guns makin' the decisions, huh?

May I suggest you give that a bit more thought??


That's what I said this morning in another thread that mysteriously disappeared. People will start to see a coup like the only option left.

I beg to differ in opinion. As you, I have family in the military. Discounts are meaningless and local parades are the same. Too many in America have become disenfranchised with the idea of citizens who serve to defend us. We need a National celebration parade for those who are serving. They are going unnoticed or even getting 'boo'ed' by many who have nothing to reflect upon except 'history'.

I realize that Trump will get an ego boost by showing how BIG our military is. This is not just for his benefit though. It is a stepping stone of pride for those currently serving and those who may serve in the future!

I am so tired of those who are bashing those in the military, who are actually the ones who will be defending us all and ALL of our American values. A battle does not have to ensue nor be waged...these servants of our nation have actually a higher status than our so-called representatives in government!

A parade is a chore, another seemingless task for our military to perform...but it actually opens the eyes of many that they do exist...and do so to ensure our freedom and liberties. A parade is simplistic...but it gives a focus to many who have no clue.

My husband's a vet, both of us have active & veteran friends. None of them thinks this parade idea makes them feel appreciated at all, they see it as a mockery wrapped in dick measuring.

Most vets f#ing hate the firework displays put on "for them" because people are dense idiots and don't get that exploding s# around vets is insanely insensitive. Like they want reminded of war zones at home. Most vets don't like being paraded around at events as objects to ogle, either. Most vets don't even like the hero worship, and find it very uncomfortable at best. Nobody likes a random groveling sycophant at their feet.

We don't need to pull our own NK parades out of our asses, they're not going to make anybody feel any better about jack s#. All they do is waste a lot of money the vet services could use. But that would be too easy, redirecting a crapload of money from frivolity toward things that would show actual, tangible give-a-f# about the people formerly in the military.

Just imagine how much good that 80 million could do if it was allocated to supporting the veterans who suffer from serious mental health issues, due to their military service.




That is a very good point. Trump should do the parade and give 80million to the VA.

So being anti the currently sitting president is being "anti America"?

Ooft, that's a scary idea. Totally undemocratic, but that's people's fear to begin with. He's leading you down a path that you're willingly walking that leads to a place where people aren't allowed to speak out without being labelled as anti American. Think about that.

If you have the capacity to.

LOL yeah you are probably right.. I mean they wouldnt possibly like Americans lining the street to cheer and thank and celebrate them.

The military parade scheduled for November has been postponed to 2019.

If this has already been posted, apologies.
