    So why does he not say "let's put it in the VA budget"?

    If he is adding it to the budget, how is it taking away from the budget?

    In my mind
    I am a bit surprised folks are into this, other than Trump himself.

    Certainly it seems to be a stupid waste of money, and now has been rolled into an existing parade while being watered down.

    Other than to masturbate the ego of the president, what is the purpose of this parade? To waste money? To make the president feel like the tin pot dictator he aspires to be?

    What is needed to make this image complete is for Trump to show up in a military uniform or fire a gun into the air as the parade passes.

    I think it's more to torque the left and get them in a position of attacking a parade for veterans. It's dirty pool imo.

    Why are vets hungry? They have many benefits available to them, plus state and local help as well.
    Benefits to illegals goes on continuously. Hospital benefits alone should be reserved for Americans. One year in my county was 15 million bucks. Most for maternity. In five years the schools will feel another sting.
    Then much of their earnings is sent to Mexico for their benefit not ours.

    Using the most conservative estimates available from federal agencies and non-profit organizations, Newsweek found Trump could completely eliminate hunger among homeless veterans, serving them three meals a day, for at least 14 days.
    Heh-heh...yeah, I figured you'd love the concept. Maybe Sarah Palin can ride on one of the missiles.

    A 30 million dollar spite message? Sounds like something Trump would love.

    Just the bystander effect here. We're all bystanders but who's helping, who's taking responsibility? Probably everyone expects the government to.
    You're not a bystander.. you're not even the peanut gallery.. you're someone blasting from across the ocean with no idea or input what you're actually talking about in the domestic context.

    It's not any "individual's" responsibility to give food to veterans, it's the same country's and governments responsibility who sent them into war in the first place.

    Paid for with taxpayers money. So each and every tax payer in the US paid for that shit, and WOULD pay for those veterans being fed, if the government would properly allocate their resources.

    But instead, everyone is "forced" to participate paying for that stupid military parade to please the ego of the orange man.. who does not give a fucking fly about the veterans, just about his "military parade', just like dictators around the world do.
