march mílitary parade

Recommended Posts

once again more substantiation that our commander in chief (notice I don't use larger case) is not in command haha of his senses.  we are conducting multiple wars simultaneously, and the only thing he came away from his visit to france where he saw a military parade (they're not at war with anybody) with was that "he wants one too",

 

veterans and active military have expressed their disbelief.  they are training for deployment, dealing with extreme weather conditions, terrorist tactics, and the Donald wants "his own parade"?  with 6,000 soldiers marching.  this goes beyond his claims he can grab any woman's body part that he wants to just because he can.  this is dementia.  this is kim jon un, that crazy in north korea.    what do you all say to this??  it's coming out of your pocket--he hasn't paid for a **** thing so far.

I think it's stupid and goes against our national identity. 

We Americans have our Fourth of July parades locally and the veterans groups, ROTC, National Guard, and military honor guard types (as well as local businesses, high schools, fire fighters, etc...) in a typical US parade.  That's what we usually do.  We like to see our local military people and the kids like to see some of the old equipment they drag out for parades.  Historically, we have also had a big parade/celebration after a war so people can get out to show the appreciation they have for those who defend us. 

This has a different feel.  We don't need a national show of force.  It's just not our style because we have a military controlled by civilians.  Who is trying to impress?  I hope he changes course and does more of a honor and thank your local veterans type parade instead (all US parades end up opening up to civilian groups).  That's more fitting with our personality as a country.  You know, you see the VFW float, followed by a local business trying to sell something, followed by a marching band, followed by a horse club, various political groups, etc...  The inaugural parade is exactly that on a bigger scale, no matter who is president.  That's what we do best.  

Trump needs to quit trying to compete with Putin and Kim Jong.

     If we are going to have a parade, why not have one of Veterans from the past wars.  We don't need tp display our military hardware, but why not display the many that have given to this country in the past & the present.  Our Cammander & Chief, doesn't need to be honored with a parade, he's honored everyday that he is in office.

Wouldn't it be more fitting to have Wall Street types and CEOs marching for Trump?  Billionaires and the ultra rich are his crowd.  Shady businessmen would fit right in, too.  But wait, no one wants to cheer them on, lol!
