There you go again with the ethnic politics. The smart guys on the left are wise to you now. The only reason you attack her is because she is Italian-American.

Just like the only reason anyone on the right ever criticized Ted Kennedy was because of his Irish heritage. :rolleyes:

While discussing Republican attacks on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews referred to attacks on Pelosi as “ethnic politics” and stated that attacking people from the coasts who are “usually ethnic” is an old tactic by Republicans. https://pjmedia.com/video/matthews-gop-attacks-pelosi-ethnic-attacks/

Imagine honoring the people who put their lives on the line to keep us all safe and displaying the best military equipment in the history of the world.

Sounds better than a parade of illegals chanting about their right to be here, of a parade of home grown terrorists chanting No Justice, No peace.

Guess some find the dregs of society entertaining.
Not surprised who they are around here.

Imagine the gall and total lack of cognitive thought to compare the US Military to the Nazis. Takes a real low-life reject to do that.

I was getting there! There are too many lolz in this whole thing I couldn't get them all out.

Typically when I see a picture of Stalin, Mao, Hitler, or the Kims at one of these things I think "man! he must really be compensating for his micropenis." Then Trump thinks it's a good idea.

Then Mosty throws up a article from September. Proceeds to commit the ultimate social media no-no of making a Hitler/Nazi reference when his beloved French are the inspiration for the idea.

Finally you have the French display of military might inspiring ANYBODY let alone Donald Trump... also funny. It's the damn French! Were they marching backwards?

It only serves the joy of rubbing salt into your wounds come the next stinger that will be dealt to you. Myself personally I find it more interesting than fourth of July fireworks or the Macy's day parade that I lost all interest for as a kid.

We aren't some military dictatorship that needs to intimidate it's own population or the world.

Also, for whatever reason, it's just something Americans don't do. They are not very common throughout our history aside from victory parades.

Has nothing to do with pride or patriotism. America has just never seemed to need them to embody those things.

Precisely my point. Honoring our veterans or those currently serving is fine
as a part of a larger celebration or parade.

I did some research on that, since I've heard you make that claim before..

But it was just one person who was doing it. An example of one of his posts, from 2005:


Prior to the last presidential election, I mentioned to a young republican my biggest fear was the fundamentalist and their force in the republican party. I said I didn't know how to fight this group. He suggested I find/join a group that would fight them. Moveon fills that need. They are just getting their legs and will be a force to keep an eye on as time progress's. The fundamentalists have been going at it for 8 years or more and are close to creating the theocracy they desire in Washington. Plus they have weekly meetings with their constituents to enforce their teachings. You can lol all you want but Moveon is not going away.

So as you can see, he was blaming fundamentalists in the party for the coming theocracy, not Bush directly. His concerns had started well before Bush.

Meanwhile, there have been many alt-righties here who have mentioned Obama instituting martial law, sharia law, Jude Law, you name it :lol:

President George H. W. Bush held a military parade in Washington on June 8, 1991, to mark victory in the Persian Gulf War. The cost of that parade was $12 million, according to a C-SPAN report at the time, which amounts to about $21 million once adjusted for inflation. At the time it was called the biggest victory celebration in Washington since the end of World War II, with a crowd of around 200,000.

As a veteran, I enjoy a parade as much as the next guy. But if simply a gimmick on back of the current administration's mantra of MAGA, I think we already have enough propaganda in our lives.

Parade is a joyful event (like Macy's for instance). It is a celebration of present and optimistic future. You can turn off your TV if you don't like. It is a free country. A great country! No other country equals USA.

Ralph, we look at the same vista and yet I have no idea what you are looking at.

If the military gear was automated, ran without human intervention right past the WH on its own, there was no music, no pomp and circumstance, no celebration of the people who invented the equipment etc......Mostie would have a valid distinction. The military is all about the people. The defense contractors, the unique capabilities of our equipment and the people that operate it. The young people who give large chunks of their lives to join. The old Wiley vets who decide to stay in and guide those young people.

You cannot have a military parade in this country without honoring the military members. If you don’t understand that, then it’s tied to your terrible understanding of why Trump resonates with his supporters. Trump can no way in hell have a military parade without honoring the people. He’s shown over and over that he admires the military. You cannot separate our military from its members just because you think you can draw a line in what you think is Trump’s mind.

Walk softly and carry a big stick provides no influence.

Reagan knew it, and Trump is following that path.

If your gonna be the big dog, you gotta get off the porch and show everybody your the big dog.

Its funny then that so many republicans and military brass have come out against such a parade. Did you see what the Navy Seal who killed Bin Laden had to say about it?

https://twitter.com/mchooyah/status/961644132119859200

Did I say I was for a parade? No. And I’m really not....but if the Prez wants to have a parade.....I’m not going to bitch. Btw, I told you he’s doing it to troll the left and honor the military......you can do both.

Btw, I guess that i’ll Have to change my mind now that a Seal has weighed in.......Christ! Your circular logic is weird as hell sometimes. There’s a ton of different opines in a community of veterans.

Personally I liked Military parades as long as they weren’t too long. Air shows were my favorites. I’ve worked color guard and funerals and all that shit. When I was young I was a fan of it. It can be a morale booster.

Hell, I enjoyed marching the penal flight (guys in jail) across the base to hit the chow hall. It was fun. But there’s a time and place for everything. Trump can decide that.

Btw, no matter what he does on every single subject, he’s going to catch hell from the left, so he might as well do what he wants

Donald Trump wants to hold a Military Parade down Pennsylvania Avenue next Independence Day. Which may also be our last Independence Day.

Perhaps they could get some ideas from this.

Let me guess.

You clapped and cheered long, loud, and hard for a bunch of pink pussy hats and people dressed in vagina outfits in DC? Amirite?

I'm not excited about the idea.

As long as we don't bring in tanks and missiles and all that garbage, and do it well in putting our men and women that serve our country in front and center, then I'm OK.

I think it will be 180 degrees different than your thick skull could imagine.

https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-military/2018/07/18/initial-cost-for-trump-military-parade-comes-in-at-12-million-dod-says/


The $12 million cost is roughly the same amount the military had planned to spend on its now-cancelled military exercises with South Korea. Trump directed the exercises to be cancelled citing their cost and saying the exercises were “very provocative” to North Korea.

"We stopped playing those ‘war games’ that cost us a fortune,” Trump said last month. The exercises were cancelled after his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

Nope... that's just the purpose of military exercises... :rolleyes:

“U.S. Air Force, Marine Corps, and Navy personnel will train with air assets from the Republic of Korea, flying 230 aircraft at eight U.S. and ROK military installations,” read a statement from the U.S. Air Force’s Pacific Air Forces Command issued in advance of the long-scheduled exercise. “VIGILANT ACE is part of a continuous exercise program designed to enhance readiness and operational capability of U.S. and ROK forces.”

The statement continued: "This realistic air combat exercise is designed to enhance interoperability between U.S. and Republic of Korea forces and increase the combat effectiveness of both nations."

The sentiment of militarism is here as in the red block...while we don’t have big brass parades yet, often at any large sporting event it is not uncommon for jets to buzz the venue in a show of patriotic strength...it is meant to impress, the same motive of the red block parades essentially....

only in the red bloc zones, I get the feeling that “the people” deeply mistrust the military, and rightly so as communism was/ is the most despicable, miserable political system known to mankind...

the militaristic spirit is muted here in the US but once the alarm goes out and the rightness of our cause is broadcast, the people roar up and support the troops, and usually the chief. Will be interesting to see the public reaction to so-called “democratic interventions” that seem to always “pop-up” regardless of who is in power.

FDR served as Assistant Secretary of the Navy and played a pretty interesting role in the development of the Navy we see today.

He actually requested to serve during WWI but Wilson denied his request asking that he remain with the Department.

You have got to be kidding me. Clinton warned Bush about Al Qaeda and Muslim terrorists. Strongly. Bush chose to ignore him and concentrate on a nonexistent nuclear threat from Russia. It was Bush who convened one meeting of the terrorism threat unit in the eight months prior to 9-11. Or maybe it was no meetings.
Barack H. Obama - allowed ISIS to grow, screwed up the Arab Spring and left US diplomats to die and knowingly allowed RUSSIANS to hack the election, and drew pink lines in the sand and then backed down sending a bad message to the world.

That is even dumber than your comments about Clinton. Except for Syria, ISIS was a nonfactor when Obama left office. Trump is merely mopping up. Nobody allowed US diplomats to die, except in the sense that Republican controlled congresses refused to sufficiently fund security at diplomatic installations. Obama initiated strong sanctions and diplomatic punishments against Russia when the hacking was revealed. He knowingly allowed nothing. Trump benefitted from the hacking, which he unquestionably knew about even before it happened.

Of the presidents since Truman who served in the military, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, and George HW Bush served in combat or in combat zones.
