    The military does not belong to the President.

    That's like suggesting Florida belongs to Rick Scott because he's governor.

    Your personal opinions as to the motivations or thoughts of the President when it comes to a military parade isn't something to debate. Neither of us are mind-readers. So I'm not going to waste any time doing that. Besides - that is irrelevant as it relates to my post anyway.

    The point of my comment was that democrats were not hostile to this idea back in 2014 when it was Schumer proposing it instead of Trump. So that leads me to believe this is just more TDS-inspired opposition that is difficult for me to take seriously. But all of that being said - if you want to advocate using this money to feed and house homeless veterans instead then be my guest. I don't find that to be an unreasonable advocacy. I would just prefer it was done without all of the hypocritical and partisan sniping.

    Fake Homeless Veterans: What Do You Do?

    a self-identified anarchist who passes himself off as a vet perverts that long sought-after intimacy – and that’s what shook me.
    Weeks later, after Veterans Day has come and gone, I still see the fake vet across the street from the Metro, surrounded by paperbacks, holding his sign.

    Source: https://www.military.com/spousebuzz/...do-you-do.html
    Whether or not the vet is a fake is none of my business.

    New Yorkers, if not city dwellers everywhere, might acknowledge a debt to Pope Francis this week. He has offered a concrete, permanently useful prescription for dealing with panhandlers.

    It’s this: Give them the money, and don’t worry about it.

    The pope’s advice, from an interview with a Milan magazine published just before the beginning of Lent, is startlingly simple. It’s scripturally sound, yet possibly confounding, even subversive.

    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 hope he wears a uniform with massive epaulets like those guys from South America. He's needs big huge gold ones.

    Me too! Was told I wouldn't be marching in the parade in basic. Really broke my heart.

    President Donald Trump's military parade is set to kick off on Veterans Day, but at a cost that even conservative estimates show could feed every homeless veteran for at least two weeks, a Newsweek analysis found.



    Trump is more interested in his ego than actually helping anyone (other than himself). Why does anyone think this is a good idea?

    Strange you are attacking Trump.. lets see our Veterans during the Obama administration were REFUSED healthcare... While Obama's Budget had 500,000,000 dollars budgeted and not spent for veterans healthcare?

    Funny thing the Delays are ending thanks to Trump, Vets are receiving the care they need at an increasing rate while Obama did nothing about a system that allowed 300,000 die while waiting for care. Even when he had the funding to do so.

    I know and that's fine but a bit off from what was said.

    I'm assuming it wasn't stated correctly, is all. And asking Ian to clarify.

    That's a bit hyperbolic. It was the Republican Congress during the Obama administration that refused to increase the VA budget to the levels needed to insure adequate timely care for all of them.

    It seems Grover Norquist was one of the perps responsible and he was not even an elected official.

    500,000,000? are you kidding? That barely runs the facilities in even one state.
