That alone says a shitload about his character.

Because poking holes in the desert is more better?

hillbilly, notice how i never asked anyone else that question? i asked brian due to the fact he posts a lot about the military and how great it is.

if he feels it was so great i wondered why he did not serve. it was not in a derogatory tone, just curious. obviously he has flat feet or something so he could not serve.

people speaking for veterans or military people is no different than NPR constantly speaking for blacks and illegal aliens.

edit: plus you get paid to blow shit up and kill people!!! how much did you pay to go skydiving? you can get paid to do that. plus i didn't want to get drafted into the army.

any military parade is stupid. it just so happens the commies and tyrranical dictatorships love to do it. so trump sees a parade in france and wants us to do something similar...

anyone parading how big their dick is is just comical to me. speak softly and carry a big stick.

Poking more holes anywhere is not better.

Still...

Almost nothing lives in the desert and there is, by definition, no water to contaminate.

The exact opposite holds true for the ocean.

So yes, I would postulate that fuck ups involving holes in the desert are exponentially less bad.

I thought this was neat, just imagine this with the technology we have today. Best part was the Humvee pulling the float at the end. I got a good laugh out of that.

We have a Veteran's Day parade here each year. I guess it's the same but different. Typically it's just the National Guard and the local recruiters driving by in Humvees and MRAPS throwing candy. All the VFW and American Legion guys ride wagons now as their average age exceeds my monthly health insurance premium. The fireworks are pretty cool, though. I didn't know we had so many tyrranical dictatorships in my town.

How about this:

What have you done for your country, state, county, city, community?

Did you go to a public school, and now bitch when a new one has to be built (because, you know, ALL those new kids are illegals)?

That's not a military parade, where the main point is to showcase the military hardware, troops.

Last I checked at any Veteran's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Christmas, etc. parade, whole divisions of troops weren't marching in lock step. The only ones doing that were the local high school bands.

Somehow you feel these people dressed up in weirdo clothing is the same as people looting a CVS? Really? Look at those people again. They have a message. They're holding their signs, smiling, yet protesting and sharing their message. They're not dressed up as some body part. They're not burning anything. They're protesting, peacefully.

But to you, you think that's the same as this:


You're a fucking idiot.

In his defense, it doesn't have to be about ALL...

If a new school is built because of the population demands created by people who are not supposed to be here in the first place, it does beg the question of, "WTF are we doing here exactly?"

You're a dipshit. You twist every little thing to suit your agenda. You've got this little notion in your head that the "Trump parade" would be about power and "showcasing" the military force because that's what you heard on CNN. No way could the parade be about the people of the military - to honor the people and show unity and respect. You think the Bastille Day parade is about "military hardware"? If so you're a fucking idiot.

LOL, Dan I think there are many here that just 'don't get it'. Look at the '91 Parade Photos, watch the videos. People LOVED that shit, especially the kids. Had just 1 EA-6 Prowler retire at the Hickory Airport Museum. The day it flew in (just one jet mind you) the place was PACKED. Thousands and Thousands for just one Military Jet. The pilot was retiring as well, it was a big deal.

As for the proposed parade, it was Trump's idea. Many (like Scott) will hate it for that simple fact alone. It's mind numbing.

No, Dan - you're the fucking idiot.

You're the one who thinks morons wearing pink knitted hats and rainbow clothing are the devil, but morons dressed up in 18th century garb or carrying ARs at a protest are just AOK.

They are both morons, but since one is on your side, you refuse to acknowledge that. Just like you refuse to acknowledge that Trump is a moron (his own people say so) and unfit for office. But he got you a SC judge so he's GREAT!

Oh, Trump wants it about the troops? So no missiles? No tanks? We'll see.

Trump is all about "power" and showing "strength." If you think he wants this just to "honor" the troops you're a fucking idiot.

Oh, and the parade in '91 was celebrating something (Gulf War win). That makes sense. What are we celebrating here? How GREAT America is?

As others have pointed out, if you have to talk about how great you are, you aren't that great. Case in point: Demand people clap for you; flashing a pricey watch or camping gear. What you are is an insecure little bitch.

I'm indifferent. What is the parade supposed to do? We go to military airshows and parades with military vehicles. It's neat equipment and kids have fun. I guess a yuge one will be more fun? To do it now, in the context of 2018, it seems like possible posturing, like when some bro showboats his new tough-guy tat. Maybe it's innocent fun, maybe not. Either way I'll grab some popcorn and watch.

All this talk got me researching. JFK had Nuclear missiles at his ingratiation parade. Trump will NOT top that guarantee it! What military feat were they celebrating there Scott? JFK did indeed have a historic military story. PT-109, the things you remember.

It was celebrating Kennedy's inauguration, like Ike's before. But Ike refused to do it "just to show strength":

?Eisenhower said absolutely not, we are the pre-eminent power on Earth,? historian Michael Beschloss explained. ?For us to try to imitate what the Soviets are doing in Red Square would make us look weak.?

In the grand scheme of things, does it matter? Not really. It's just yet another example of Trump's tiny ego needing to be constantly stroked (Cabinet having to say he's the greatest pres ever; people HAVE to clap for him; insisting he had the bigliest inaug crowd ever; he won in a landslide; he only reads articles that have his name in them; and on and on).
