Instead give the money to the active service members and vets for; education, career transition programs, homeless vets, more healthcare, improved military family support programs, improved equipment to protect and better comfort those who serve, etc - I would rather thank them personally by directly giving them what's deserved, rather than what Trump "wants".
To all our veterans...THANK YOU!
Good article. Agree completely. I left the Republican Party the moment Trump was nominated. He is exactly the opposite of what this country needs.
Trump Golf Count: 93 DAYS OF GOLF
Cost to Taxpayer: At least $50,877,881 Million Dollars. Yes...that is $51 MILLION DOLLARS.
Where does Trump thinks this money comes from? 1.5 Trillion for infrastructure, 25 Billion for the border wall, 1 Trillion in tax cuts for the wealthy, 10 million so far for his trip to Florida to golf, and now 8 million for a pointless parade so he can show off and feel important? Well, I guess since he is familiar with bankruptcy proceedings, he thinks that he can spend whatever he wants without consequences.
I am a Vietnam Vet. Left my wife and 6 week old daughter home to spend 363 days in 'Nam. Trump had bone spurs that prevented military service but not college competitive sports. I avoided bullets, he avoided STD's (that's what he said to Howard Stern). Now he wants a multi million dollar parade to show appreciation to the military. NO NO NO He wants to see the troops march by, give him an "eyes right" while he basks in total adulation. The parade is about HIM. He wants the biggest, longest, best parade there ever was or will be. He should pay for it using his laundered money. No he shouldn't. Our military doesn't need to be used to feed his insatiable ego. Use the millions to help the military, not use it. If there is a parade, I want a float sponsored by Dr. Scholl's to commemorate bone spurs.
Gig in the Sky
What's next? I pledge allegiance to the Trump?
Millions for a parade. A decent man would take those millions and help thousands of homeless vets. A decent man would take those millions and help those coal miners that aren`t getting their jobs back (as he promised). A decent man would take that money and help those who can`t afford healthcare now. That`s what a DECENT man would do, Donnie.
Outstanding and insightful article. Well done!
President Bonespurs already had 1 parade in Charlottesville. How many does it want?
More power in not displaying power
If cadet bone spurs is so fond of the military, why did he dodge the draft.
