I've always thought that you're probably the sock puppet of another Amiriter McFly. I could be wrong.
I think you are right and I think many of us know who it might be.
If he cared about the military, he would be going to some of the war zones and talk with some of them. He's all talk, and no action.
It's like believing that if you say something enough times, people will start believing it.
Those of us who are old enough to remember being subjected to the draft know better. Getting a deferment from the draft was different than someone being a draft dodger. Here is a list of of some famous people who got a deferment. (Note that Bill Clinton is also on the list)
The term draft dodgers came to represent those who fled to Canada, claimed to be homosexuals, or claimed to have mental illness. Some claimed to be bed wetters or have other problems to keep them out of the military.
But very few went to the extremes of Ted Nugent to avoid the draft
Linn, Did you condemn Clinton for dodging the draft? Did you condemn Obama for never wearing a uniform? You can't support one while slamming the other. Personally, I wish ALL politicians had to serve in uniform, but that isn't the reality we live in.
Linn, Aside from talking about parades, liking Trump, disliking Trump, whats happening in the world, etc etc, isn't it hypocritical for people to Slam Trump as a draft dodger but not condemn others, like Clinton or Biden? You make the point that if Trump found a cure for Cancer and all other diseases, the left would only focus on, and condemn him for getting rid of obamacare.
When it comes to military parades, I've stood, and marched, in a lot of them. They aren't anything new.
That's just it, Jim. We have parades honoring the military on many days during the year. Days designated exclusively for that very thing. Why spend the millions on one that is primarily meant to be a one up?
You know very well that trump sees himself sitting in a box with troops marching by, snapping their heads in his direction, to salute him.
And during the campaign he forgot which foot....
There were not even 5 drafts in his legal lifetime. The parade is not to be in his honor, don't you even listen at all? It's to honor veterans. You see, veterans and soldiers are demonized by the liberals and ole Pres Crazy Hair can see that. Dig?
They seem to forget that the Obamas and Clintons hate the military.
Sorry Jerry, but that is not how we have honored our military in this country. This is how NK and Russia honored their military. This will cost a fortune. And who is going to foot the bill...Trump?
It will cost $12 million. We spend more than that for one day of border patrol. You guys just grasp at anything, no matter how insignificant and this is ridiculously insignificant. If Obama had a parade you would praise him as lord and saviour.
And you equate the importance of 'boarder control' with a few hours of appeasing Trump's ego?
Obama would never have come up with a self serving, fiscally irresponsible, bird brain idea, like this doozy.
Are you KIDDING me!?! He gave IRAN $100 million! You people are way the fuck out in left field.
First of all, you are wrong about the amount. Just a little thing but it comes off better when you know what you are talking about.
And second, he did not do that for his own self interest. He did that to release hostages and the very FACT that we owed Iran the money.
$12 mil for the one in '91. You're right about that. The inflation calculator puts that number at $22 mil. Nothing you can ever say justifies giving money to Iran, ESPECIALLY for hostages.
You owe a country money you better pony up the dough. ESPECIALLY if you want hostages returned.
Always easy to talk tough when it's not anybody you care about, right?
You don't pay for hostages, period. If anybody owes anyone, they owe us. They've been sponsoring terrorism for decades. What do you think the damage done by them is worth in dollars?
Dead people > losing pride? You guys put so much weight on symbolism. Definition of Marriage > people loving eachother, How to pose during the national anthem > freedom of speech, etc
the US has sponsored more acts of terrorism than the rest of the planet combined
Do you have proof of that? I can't believe you people are justifying payment to Iran. You guys love Kim Jong Un too?
What do you think drone strikes are? Invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq? Bombing the shit out of Libya, Syria, Yemen, et al. Supplying weapons to the butcher in the Philippines. Supplying Israel to bomb Palestine.
Then there's Central and South America.
It was Iran's money. We just gave it back.
Trumps ego?He is very proud of our military.He respects and loves them.
Why shouldn't we show pride in our country?
If Obama had a parade like this I'd Turn on him in five seconds. This kind of stuff worries me. Too much Nationalism is NEVER good. It's ALWAYS lead to dark places. It's National Narcissism When you start thinking you're mightier and better than everyone else you start wanting to take things that don't belong to you or declare yourself indisputably right (has trump ever EVER admitted to being wrong?) To me this is just a couple of goosesteps in the wrong direction. Spend the money on Veteran care!
As if Trump isn't helping veterans.
Now we're gonna be goose stepping down the streets of washington..ho boy
Is that all you people do is hate and say stupid things about
Trump.He did more for the American people,then the last two presidents.I guess you liked phony lying Obama.
I'm not going to dignify this post with a debate...it's just dumb
What you said ,wasn't dumb???????????????
So, in my observation, Liberals think that it's okay for naked gay men and women dressed as pussies to have parades but the military can't have any pride.
