Military parade?.....Why?

Feb 8, 2018 10:08PM PST

Is this to satisfy the ego of the child prez?

Is this to show Kim the child prez has a big button?

Who's paying for this?

Do our pols realize money does not grow on trees?

We have a bunch of dorks running the country.

Clarification Request
Since he REALLY, REALLY wants a "parade"
Feb 9, 2018 8:27PM PST

Perhaps they could "Parade The People" that have "resigned" from the Trump administration, there will probably be a dozen more by July 4th....

Perp Walk on Pennsylvania Ave?...An Annual event?

I would welcome a PERP WALK
Feb 10, 2018 2:54AM PST

as long as it could also include DEMS in that parade. THAT would make it a REAL gathering. When they recently had the 'woman's rally' that group refused entrance to pro-life women which made the entire rally one-sided. IF you have a rally/parade that is a PERP WALK, bring in ALL of them no matter what side of the aisle they sat on and make them all wear Mad Hatter hats that stand tall showing if they are a Rep or a Dem so the voters out there know which side has more perps. Would you agree to that?

The voters all ready know...they just don't agree with each other...

AND TheRUMP could proclaim the largest crowd ever to attend a Perp Walk?

In the Perp Walk I envisioned...they just walk the walk and people throw rotten fruits and vegetables at them..never mind which party they supported...They could all wear the same costume....PLEASE DON'T THROW FROZEN OBJECTS....someone could seriously injured....

Did you ask the same questions
Feb 9, 2018 7:13AM PST

after WWII (shortly after the end of the Great Depression when money was tight) or after Desert Storm (shortly after Carter tossed our economy into the crapper)? Most military parades are done on a local level, with very few ever done on a National level. Did you comment about this when France's prez recently held THEIR military parade when they are also strapped for cash on a country level? Do you think it was done to show Kim that France's prez is a world power? Did you ever once consider the fact that Trump has always been pro-military and has not been happy with how the Dem party is so against it and wants to show strong appreciation for the sacrifices our military and their families make?

The child prez
Feb 9, 2018 8:09AM PST

Is a draft dodging flag waver.

This is not about showing appreciation it's about satisfying Trump's ego.

If the child prez spends 20/30 million bucks of your money to satisfy his ego is that ok with you?

Does it make you feel more appreciated?

It does not do that for me.

I don't give a hoot what some other country does as far as parades.

If the dorks running those countries want to throw away tax payer money it does not cost me a nickle.

So, what do you think
Feb 9, 2018 10:32AM PST

should be done to show that military appreciation? If you think as I do, instead of a parade, put that money directly into the paychecks of the actual personnel who are doing the service. They are all mostly working for far less than even the middle class across the country earn in their paychecks.

The child prez/Trump's ego
Feb 10, 2018 10:18AM PST

Do you believe people like Ike, JFK (both of whom had military parades) or even Chuck Schumer were all supporting military parades because of their egos? Schumer, in 2014, actually presented that proposal to Congress........just in case you didn't know that. Please read this whole article because it debunks the 'ego' crap that liberals are shouting about, and to my surprise there have actually been more military parades in our history than I thought we had had.

Military parades
Feb 10, 2018 10:47AM PST

From the past are in the past.

What is the purpose of having a parade now and spending millions?

I doubt it has anything to do with honoring the people who are serving or who have served.

The draft dodger talks a good game.

also talked a good game....but you like/liked him....even after he was impeached for lying to Congress about his zipper problems.

Are you suggesting we should just erase the past because you don't like being reminded of it?

So because you don't believe in
Feb 11, 2018 5:54AM PST

'the past' are you also for forgetting about indicting people for past crimes as well? If someone killed another yesterday, should police and prosecutors stop looking for them because it's 'in the past'? You can't have it both ways, Bob.......or would you prefer that the door only swing in the present? If that's the case then whatever happens today shouldn't affect the future, even tomorrow, right? You focus entirely on today's news/stories with no hesitation to predict the future of THIS president, but the PAST president's actions should go ignored because it's 'in the past'. You make NO sense which is why you have such a hard time trying to actually debate anything here.

I believe in the past
Feb 11, 2018 6:37AM PST

I just don't have a grudge list and keep dragging up stuff from 5/10/15 yrs ago and carping about it.

Because the dems did something in the past that was wrong is not justification for the repubs to do the same thing today.

That seems to be your position......the dems did it so it's ok for the repubs to do it.

Wrong is wrong whether it happened yrs ago or is happening today.

I won't debate someone who has a grudge list and lives in the past.

You don't debate ANYTHING, Bob
Feb 11, 2018 7:38AM PST

That's the post your OPINIONS with nothing to back them up. What are the Republicans doing wrong in your OPINION that the Dems did before since that seems to be the ONLY thing you CARP on? You claim it's an ego trip and he's being a child for Trump to have a military parade, but when Schumer wanted one only three years ago, you have no comment. Was it ego or childish for Schumer when he's now claiming it's an ego thing for Trump to suggest it? Was Schumer being an egotist or a child then or now?

You just proved my point
Feb 11, 2018 12:11PM PST

Now your back 3 live in the past.

Wrong then wrong today.

The child prez ref is based on how Trump acts with his verbal and twitter gaffes and his lack of understanding about how things work.

Pocahontas, Lil Marco, Rocket Man.............sounds like stuff from a grade school playground not from an adult.

Have you never acted childish
Feb 12, 2018 6:34AM PST

as an adult and given someone you dislike or not agree with a 'nickname'? Come on, you have to do better with your complaints and make them real at least. I still haven't seen you actually complain about any of his POLICIES.....that actually show a REAL comprehension and understanding about 'how things work'. You seem to have a major problem with not agreeing with the old adage of 'it's not what you SAY, it's what you DO that counts'.....silver forked tongue abilities like BO had and still has mean more to you than what his actions resulted in.

- Collapse -
Feb 12, 2018 7:17AM PST

If you mean doing dumb things.....yes.
If you mean giving someone a negative nickname....nope.
I don't recall doing that as an adult.
Even if I did there is a big difference......I'm not the prez.

I don't complain about Trump's policies because they are a work in progress and only time will tell.

As for BO, I understood his position, that does not mean I agreed with everything he did.

If nothing else BO talked and acted like a prez.

It seems obvious to the entire country who voted for him, he needed the influential contacts the Clintons had, especially in New York where she was a Senator for a time, in order to get his permits and contracts done. You dance with the devil at times in your life and voters understood 'how things work' (your favorite term when complaining about Trump btw which belies the complaint).
