Same could be said for Trump who never served.  Only the middle class and poor do the bleeding and the upper class and the rich do the talking when war is concerned.  Although there are exceptions such as John Mac Cain who served his country with honor.  Has Trump invited him with a place of honor? 


Of course Trump is asking for a parade not for himself but for veterans. 

No .... it was for himself Tex!

 

That has been overlooked. 

No .... you "overlook" the obvious Tex!

 

Has veterans been asked what they think about it?  Of course a media poll among the military by a paper that a minority of the military reads says they don't want it.  Lower ranking enlisted doesn't particulary read the Military Times newspapers.

 

McCain can't be said to have served the country with honor if his fellow P.O.W.s are left out.  Plus he was a poor student at Annapolis, graduating fifth from the bottom in his class; wrecked 3 aircraft as a Naval pilot including the one he was in when shot down.

How can you possibly blame McCain for wrecking his aircraft that was SHOT DOWN by the enemy Tex? ..... PATHETIC!

The person trump has in mind with regard to the parade is a fat, lying, draft dodger who loves adulation and would use any public event for that purpose, just like most scum sucking dictators do.

 

 


To the contrary draft dodging doesn't necessarily apply to one President.  There was one who used every trick in the book to avoid the draft...  And of course he could be considered fat, plus lying to cover his forcing himself on women to the infamous 'I didn't have sex with that woman'.  Don't forget his impeachment by the House, his being taken to court and losing his law license.

And, unlike Trump, don't forget that "one" never demanded a military parade in his honor Tex!

 


And of course some here can't resist resorting to juvenile names for the President. 

And "some here" evade the fact that Trump is acting like a "juvenile".  So, as the names fit ..... Trump should wear them!

 

That reflects more on the person saying so than the one it is about.

That makes no sense Tex!

A spokesperson for FEMA told me Tuesday that the agency had approved $35 million in public and individual assistance grants for the island.

 

 


So now you are in contact with FEMA?  Is there a disaster in Michigan? 

Yup .... with the Republican controlled legislature and Republican governor ..... with the Republican governor responsible for poisoning the water supply of an entire city!

sure am glad the govt didnt assist Texas.


We did receive some assistance from FEMA, but not enough.  But who says that 'liberals' believe in others (others') rights.  We didn't sit around complaining until the government showed up.

 

It is just now that the govenment (government) is getting around to do something that we took care of ourselves several months ago.


Well, that's the result of a Trump/Republican controlled government. You got what you voted for Tex ..... so don't complain!

In the meantime, the money this idiot is willing to squander can be sent to Puerto Rico.

 

 


I believe the people in Puerto Rico is(are) starting to do what they should have done in the first place. (a coma instead of a period and a lower case 'a' in the word 'and) And what the people of South Texas did after Hurricane Harvey and the flooding.......helping themselves instead of complaining about help from the government. Texas got help from the government, the people in Texas did not do everything on their own, they did receive help and financial assistance, please be honest.

 

They are sitting(setting) electrical power poles and restoring electrical lines.

 

Have you been sending funds to assist the people there?  Have you? Or is it that you want the government to send our tax dollars? Our federal government has just released several billion in  tax dollars to go to assist in the needs there, does that disappoint you? It could have been done much sooner. Their tax dollars goes(go) to their commonwealth.

 

I corrected your grammatical errors and such because of the obvious concern you displayed in commenting on a spelling error of mine in another thread. I hope it helps.


 


And even with all the numerous corrections, the post still makes no sense.

When Schumer suggested a parade that was just fine. When the President suggests one all hell breaks loose.

You conveniently omitted that Schumer's parade was to honor veterans while Trump's parade was to honor himself!

 

 

Sounds like there is some "situation ethics" (and blind hatred) getting into the picture here.

No, it sounds like you are willing to look the other way on Trump's lack of "ethics" ..... using the military to honor himself!

And what makes you think that Trump is attempting to intimidate any country?   Parades are used for increasing morale of the populance.  Would you have been against a parade if a President Hillary had wanted one?  I think not.

 

It is apparent that you have a problem with the military itself.  That and Trump himself.  You have mentioned both that you are against, especially heavy weapons.

Are you more interested in creating and continuing controversy or in civil discussion?   Can you say that you are without fault?
