Only those who are on the far left.  No, they might find themselves on the wrong side of a controversy.  Even ridicule by the country.

I would believe that as a veteran I can speak from that standpoint while some that is not can't.

 

Some thoughts:

 

http://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/373244-well-take-the-military-parade-spare-the-side-of-moral-...

 

"The left is once again coming off the rails, this time over President Trump’s supposedly crazy idea to honor our military through a military parade. It’s no secret this president has great respect for our country’s service men and women. However, for Democrats it’s just another opportunity to protest the president for no other reason than they love a good protest, and it’s the president.

 

"Their strategy isn’t very smart. At this point liberals have their resist button set on auto pilot, it gets triggered no matter what the president says or does"

But you still don't believe in the nation honoring its veterans by a military parade?

 

And you think that it is ok for a community to have a parade, but not the nation as a whole?  A parade to let those in the military and it's veterans know that the nation is proud of them and their efforts?

You have disparaged all the hometown ceremonies at cemetaries honoring their local veterans that gave their lives.

To the contrary.  Those ceremonies are for the local communities; a national parade is for the nation.  As far as not giving my life, but I know what those veterans experienced as I was there.  I was around and had friends that did.  If you want to make this personal, where were you? 

 

This has drifted from the original topic.


I was in High school. 

So it begins.

When did you become the spokesperson for veterans?  Who are those veterans that agree with you?  You have no idea of how veterans feel, but your own personal thoughts influenced by politics.  How do you know that many veterans is in agreement?  Of course your arguments are mostly based on partisan lines because of the administration.

You could remove the postings that are personal attacks and the thread would stay on topic.

I didn't approve of it in any of the instances that you mention, including Schumer. You make everything partisan and argue incessantly with anyone from the left. Why is that?

 

 



 


You are the one who made it partisan by saying you felt it would feed Trumps testosterone, or words to that effect. So it is "partisan" to criticize trumP? Sounds like partisan "group speak to me". Then you claim it's because of the heavy tanks, etc.  Why? Pay better attention, I already explained why. We don't need a display of military might to honor our veterans. Many veterans agree. It would be the District of Columbia's problem, not yours. That doesn't prohibit me from having an opinion about it. You trying to prohibit me from having an opinion?

 

Who said it might consist of rockets, heavy tanks, etc? Pay attention and you would know.  Apparently you are against it because of who suggested it.There ya' go with yet another false assumption about what someone else is thinking.  Or is it that you have something against honoring veterans? How many times will you try to insult me by asking that question? I have nothing against veterans, now you shouldn't have to ask that again.. Or perhaps you don't like the military?  Again you try to insult with false accusations. Why is that? I'm beginning to think it's a combination of all. Who cares what someone thinks that is only here to attack others?

 

Your posts are beginning to indicate that you are against everything.

Personal attacks and false accusations reflect badly on our veterans but thank you for your service.

IMHO Senator McCain is a hero because of his brave service and the POW torturous nightmare he survived. Diminishing that because of who his father was is not fair , when some avoided the War because of who their father was.


Of course this is going off topic from the theme of the thread but then anyone who served in the military could be considered a hero; anyone who was a Prisoner of War in Vietnam could be equally be considered a hero on the same level as McCain;  and as far as brave service then every grunt that beat the bushes in Vietnam, which in itself exposed them to dangerous conditions, could also be considered heroes on an equal footing.

 

Of course this is the socialistic way and takes away from those who were true heroes; those awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor; those who risked their lives for their fellow soldiers or did some act that was above and beyond the call of duty, even giving their lives for so that others might live.

 

The word 'hero' is too loosely thrown around today in too many instances, mostly in adoration of some famous person.  McCain is only a hero on a par with everyone who endured being a Prisoner of War, but deserving no special recognition.
