Military Parade In Trump's Honor? "Tanks but no Tanks"

Recommended Posts

Trump wants to hold a military parade in his honor, costing taxpayers millions of dollars.  Traditionally, parades have been held on occasions like an armistice or war victory.  But Trump wants one all his own, just like other militaristic dictators with ambitions of conquest. 

 

Such a parade breaks with peaceful American tradition and sends a bellicose message to the rest of the world.  Let's hope Congress denies him the funds.

Donald Trump loves pomp and circumstance. He loves public displays of toughness. And he really, really loves the military.
Add it all up and you get this: "Trump tells Pentagon to plan a military parade.

Isn't that the most ridiculous idea ever?  :huh:  A colossal waste of money and military resources to pay "tribute" to the fuhrer.  It sounds like he wants a parade much like Kim Jong Un has for himself on a regular basis.  

 

DEFINITELY "no tanks!"

Considering Obama demoralized our military... I think  a parade is a good idea.

Obama didn't "demoralize" our military.

Bludog,

 

The Liberal's Only Rm is as the name says.  Allowing Conservatives in would turn it into an extension of No Holds Barred.  That will not happen while I am a moderator. 

 

Notice, your second post has been deleted.  One more time and you will be suspended for 5 days.

A five time draft dodger wants a military parade? 

 

My dad is rolling in his grave.

 

He wants all the trappings of a military dictatorship.

A five-time draft dodger who insults war heroes (with brain cancer) and calls Gold Star widows "liars."

 

Trump is vile and deserves nothing but disdain from the military.

Some time back they were offered a room of their own but refused.  They would have nothing to say to each other.  They need Liberals but we don't need them.

On a site called liberalforum that's probably too generous.

Agreed!  :lol:  I'm going to be posting in this area more often.  After several months trying to discuss issues in NHB, I've come to the conclusion many on the right just want to insult and demean anyone with liberal ideals.  It's a bit disconcerting.  I live in a very left-leaning area, so I don't normally see such pro-Trump insanity.

Yes.  That's why I said they need us but we don't need them.  I believe that's why so many feel an urge to intrude in the LO Rm.  Without the left as opposition, they tend to lose focus.  Many Conservatives have no vision of their own, but just a hate of "the other" ...  Blacks, Jews, Hispanics, Islam, Liberals.

Where I live, most people are far right and they share lots of red meat, some of it as extreme as anything in NHB.  So LO is a place where I can share and compare views with other lefties.  Even the very few left-leaning people who were brought up in this area usually have views oddly distorted to the right, caused by their constant exposure to Conservative orthodoxy and ignorance.

Navy SEAL who says he killed Osama bin Laden calls President Trump's military parade 'third world BS'.

 

He tweeted:

Quote

A military parade is third world bull$hit. We prepare. We deter. We fight. Stop this conversation.

 

(He put an s where I substituted a $ to avoid the forum nanny software. )

 

I couldn't agree more.

He was right on target then, and right on target now.

Trump remembers his military background, you know the glory days where he fitted right in with full uniform regalia. But when it came to fighting in Vietnam he had to sadly back away due to bone spurs in his foot. But I'll tell you, he says, golf is great, and everybody who avidly golfs somehow remains healthy through it all! 

Perhaps, just perhaps, they should hold the military parade on one of his luxurious golf courses. Maybe that way he could lead the parade!

 

Peace!

That just proves the insanity that exists in their minds, their whole premise is tied to fear and hate, insulting as it is being weak minded allows that process to fester unfortunately, allowing oneself to be ignorant is what the right banks on.

Drive the tanks through the greenside bunkers and over the green would be beautiful. I'll never play on one of his courses so I don't care.

According to the graph;  If Trump doesn't first keel over from a McDonald's cheeseburger heart attack, after 4 yrs, he will have spent way more taxpayer dollars on golf trips than was spent on either the National Endowment for the Arts or Humanities.
