President Donald Trump’s edict for the Pentagon to hold a military parade in Washington actually makes sense in a sick way. Shouldn’t we taxpayers get to see the missiles, warheads, tanks, drones, guns and other warfare hardware that over half of federal discretionary spending goes toward every year? Our tax dollars at work!
The US military is bloated beyond belief and is taking bread out of the mouths of babes.
Trump viewed a parade for Bastille Day, for crying out loud. It was not a tribute to Macron. Nevertheless, he wants a tribute to himself. I’m sure the DSM editors are continually working to capture the self-absorbed, world-ignored nature of this fool. Hey Donny, you can’t be king and jester at the same time. Pick the one at which you excel.
Unfortunately the only peace party is the Green Party. They received less that 3% (?) of the vote in the last presidential run. This parade will highlight and celebrate our ever so special killing machines that makes both major parties so proud and, most importantly to them, filthy rich. It is not just Trump folks.
“Militaristic Masturbation” cracks me up. Unfortunately, the very idea of such a parade is only another example of the perverse jingoism the Mango Mussolini wants to demonstrate. And, it’s not jingoism; it’s really a kind of perverse Trumpism!
I’m all for it, as long as the Pentagon pays for it with the 2+ trillions they can’t find in their accounting.
“Fifty years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. denounced the Giant Triplets of militarism, racism and extreme materialism. They still plague our society today, and are interrelated”
Dr King also wisely said:
“We as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values”
“In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends”
The revolution of values Dr King spoke of has never been as critically needed as today, and the silence of our “friends” tragically the norm…the quest for big-money substituted for moral compass and wisdom in “friends” and enemies.
Thank you for that…
A parade of this nature will point out to intelligent people how much money we waist on the military.To a large majority of people it will serve well as propaganda. It will illustrate Trumps vision of greatness, power, and America first. His followers will have orgasm over all that power and glory going by. “Check out the video that I made last year.” https://youtu.be/kD20IMVG3CY
You? You’re still visiting the wrong sandbox.
A giant military parade may show the world how great an mighty is our military, but it would also show the world how unfit to be Commander-in-Chief is Donald Trump. The mightiest army in history is under the control of the worst national leader in the history of the world.
Let me kindly tell you, over and over again, (so I will believe it myself) I don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction…
