    Trump Could Feed Every Homeless Veteran

    Trump Could Feed Every Homeless Veteran [for two weeks] For the Cost of his Military Parade

    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?

    100% Agree. The parade can take a damn year off, or is this a one time event (which would be even worse).

    Funny fact: but back in 2014 democrats were all for a military parade. Schumer himself called for a jumbo military parade dedicated to the troops returning home from Afghanistan, complete with bands and flyovers.

    The New York City mayor Deblasio embraced the idea:

    “I stand with Sen. Schumer in his call for a parade to honor our veteran heroes, and New York City would be proud to host this important event,”

    But of course when Trump proposes one it's a huge ego-driven waste of money and we're on our way to a dictatorship.

    Is it money that could be better spent on something else? Probably. But I can think of a lot worse ways to waste our money than honoring our brave men and women who give their lives defending our country. So on my list of things to be upset over - this isn't exactly high on my list.
    Thanks from Southern Dad and carpe diem

    So "honoring" veterans is a bigger priority than feeding and housing them?

    It seems the democrats thought so back in 2014 when they embraced the idea.

    I wouldn't be opposed to using this money to feed veterans instead. But like I said - I can think of a lot worse ways to waste our money than honoring our military. So this isn't exactly high on my list of priorities to be upset over.

    I remember when I was in the service how much I looked forward to marching in a fucking parade for some fucking clown.

    How much money is wasted on benefits to illegals.

    Why are vets hungry? They have many benefits available to them, plus state and local help as well.

    Because they don't care about homeless veterans. Homeless veterans are losers by their way of thinking. Trump and his supporters don't like losers.

    I used to think the same way about these type of things. That changed after the first Gulf War and my battalion was asked to march in a parade through Palm Springs. After everything that we had been through...to come home and see just how much we were appreciated...I really can't describe what that did for me and a lot of the people that I served with through that period.

    For two weeks according to your link.


    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.
