He's right, you know.

President Trump is incredibly supportive of America's great service members

So he's going to make them march in parade formation because soldiers love that.

At least according to some on Fark, it won't cost anything.

President Trump's Military Parade Is Likely to be a Logistical Nightmare for Planners

Well.  Yes, and no.  The size of the sticker is not only relevant, it's all that matters.  If you have some pussy ass tiny ribbon looking thing in the lower right of your back window, chances are you aren't really a good veteran.  No, the only way to know that you are a true patriot and veteran is if you plaster a giant SEAL TEAM SEX sticker across that biatch.  It needs to obscure the entire rear view, because safety is for pussies and those pussies need to know that you farkin' served.

But remember according to one of our right wing farkers this person murdered OBL in cold blood who was unarmed and trying to give up, on Obama's order.
 
2018-02-09 12:00:59 AM  
I thought there's at least two guys who initially fired shots into Bin Laden. And then all the other SEALs shot him so they could say they did.

I know a vet with a Meritorious Service medal imprinted on his license plate, coupled with a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker about not going to war if you won't take care of the soldiers, who got harassed by a bunch of True Patriots (TM) on the road.  Apparently they only saw the sticker.  I'm a hundred percent certain hey had no idea what the medal was for, if they even saw it, nor did they care, because Bernie bumper sticker OMG.

Not that the parade is a good idea, but didn't Trump get the idea from the French?  So, isn't Biden basically ripping on the French?

/Tell the average Trumper that the idea for the parade came from the French, see what they say about that

Russia and France have the same flag colors, so it's okay.  Study it out.
 
2018-02-09 12:12:27 AM  
there is a LOT of pushback from current and prior service military about this stupid parade.  the consensus from most vets is that this parade is a very bad idea.  if Donny makes the military do this, its going to undermine morale and impact combat operations and readiness.  But Donny wants to jack off to a bunch of tanks, so its probably going to happen no matter what.

f*cking moron.
 
2018-02-09 12:12:46 AM  
I gotta admit i was *really* hoping that was a direct quote from Obama. And am thus disappointed.
 
2018-02-09 12:16:49 AM  
Has Donny even bothered to figure out how he's going to pay for this parade?  I'm not sure what the current shipping costs are to move a brigade of tanks into and back out of D.C. again would be....but I doubt its going to be cheap.  Not to mention that given the record this country has had with train accidents lately, how does Donny know for sure that he won't get a literal train wreck of combat vehicles at some point during this whole event?

the logistics on moving all the people, gear and weapons into and out of town for a parade will take at least a month to plan out and put into effect.

A meritorious service medal is a participation medal. It is given to high ranking officers (O-4 and above) or senior NCOs whenever they PCS, do a long tour deployment, or retire. Occasionally lower ranks can get them for actual service but it is rare and usually covered by another medal.

To be fair, Trumpy hasn't thought about it because he doesn't care enough to think about consequences like that.

TRUMP might know or care about the logistics of planning and executing this parade of his, but the military sure as hell does.  its their people and their gear, and they're accountable for all of the above, plus making the parade look good.

*shakes head*

this ain't a good idea.  everyone - officers included - is *OPENLY* expressing a lot of anger towards trump over this idea.  the most common sentiment i've heard so far has been variations on "I don't wanna spend my vacation marching in a parade so Donny can jack off to some tanks".

He wants it as a trap; the idea is to show liberals and minorities protesting the parade as proof that the left hates America.

Not to mention that the roads in DC aren't designed to handle that many heavy military vehicles like the Champs-Elysees is designed to handle.

bigbadideasinaction: He wants it as a trap; the idea is to show liberals and minorities protesting the parade as proof that the left hates America.


if that really was Donny's plan, then he's already failed.  damn near everyone - prior AND current service - believes this parade is nothing more than spank bank material and optics for Donny's tiny hands and shriveled genitals.  that is NOT something I expect to hear from the rank and file, ya know?  that's telling me that morale among servicemembers is far lower than I figured.

Senior NCO.  Multiple tours.  Retired with combat injuries.  Regardless of whether you think it's a BS medal, he's a good dude who earned the right to display it on his car.  Any of that is beside the point, though, which is that a bunch of dudebros only saw the bumper sticker and thought "anti-military" and proceeded to harass a serviceman for it.

Pretty damn low energy in my eyes.

President Trump is incredibly supportive of America's great service members

He doesn't give one tiny shiat about the military, except that the posturing appeals to his base, and having troops salute him as CiC makes him feel important.

Every president up until now has asked what they can do for the military. He asks what they can do for him.
 
2018-02-09 12:51:25 AM  
 Who cares if he actually fired the shiat. He was there, and maybe you self-aggrandizing bone spur assholes should listen to him.

The most hardcore democratic socialists are always former military who've been screwed over by those who wave the support flag only with no action to back the flag waving

I'd have cut his beard off, kept it, and displayed it at my wildly succesfull barbershop, which would never be bombed. :P
