That display was of all the versions of the flag since colonial times.
Rolls eyes...

.....and the flag on the Nike shoes was just the first version of our flag.
What’s your point?

Nobody knows what his military soiree will cost because the WH aint saying but I find the symbolism more disturbing than the cost.



What exactly is the symbolism you are disturbed by? Please explain in detail because I am confused.

I am not worried about the symbolism. I just find it hypocritical when politicians put on a show claiming how much they appreciate and respect the military's men and women while making them put on their uniforms and miss the holiday.

The army there was national guard so they were called in for this. The planes and helicopters all require ground crews to be on duty for the assets.

If you want to show respect and appreciation to the men and women in uniform don't F### with their holiday.

Probably similar to the amount that could have been helped by the money Obama spent in his

Weird, don’t remember you calling Obama out for that

The entire thread was about how hypocrites complained about trump spending money on a celebration, but not Obama

Your the one deflecting from the subject

Posting a dumb list is not an argument

The Hate Trump Brigade tried to spin it that Trump was trying to make it all about him, as if he was doing the parade on his own birthday. But, despite the active imaginations, it turned out that it was all about America.

Trump has done more for vet's than the last three administrations combined. Try again...

Plus NOT getting us sucked into proxy war with Iran has saved thousands of lives. But orange man bad so proceed with the artificial outrage.

...and, yet, there it is behind Obama.
I thought colonial-period American flags were now supposed to be upsetting symbols of American racism.

The current one is too though so ....

Here is an anti Trump Democrat veteran talking about how Trump is getting it right with Veterans.
www.nytimes.com...

Veterans Benefits and Transition Act and the Forever GI Bill Housing Payment Fulfillment Act are two laws that are very good for Veterans.

Here is some more info.

Our Freedom was not done with a pen and paper, but taken in battle. Seems apropos to have those items to celebrate it.

Are we actually comparing an inauguration to a DC July 4th celebration like they're the same thing? First, inauguration expenses are largely paid by donations through inauguration committees. And Trump's was larger than Bush's or Obama's. More importantly, the DC 4th celebration is at taxpayers' expense.

And this is where all you honest people who spent years ripping Obama for using a teleprompter will stand up and call-out Trump for the same thing. At least Obama was good at it.

Maybe you missed the link I included in the very first post showing tax layers paid around $50 million for Obama inauguration

I understand

It’s tough to actually read the op when your in a rush to make partisan excuses
