Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, February 10, 2018

As the Pentagon continues to work on parade options to present to President Donald Trump, an overwhelming number of Military Times readers have weighed in: Don't have one. The informal poll was launched Wednesday after news reports that Trump had requested a military parade and that the Pentagon was working on parade options for him. As of Thursday afternoon, more than 51,000 readers had responded. The majority, 89 percent, responded "No, It's a waste of money and troops are too busy." The other 11 percent responded "Yes, it's a great opportunity to show off U.S. military might." On Thursday, Pentagon press secretary Dana White said any parade plans were in the very beginning stages, and that the Pentagon had tapped the Army to lead the effort.

Oh yeah, Jesus loved a good military parade! Or was it Hitler? Or Stalin? Or Kim Jong-un?

I wonder what fake military rank donald will give himself for the occasion. My money is on Field Marshal.

Ivanka is likely already designing the fake uniform-looking suit.

If the parade happens Trump should borrow Sheriff Clarke's sweet uniform.

I'm all in favor of having a military parade to show off our new military might. But, how are we going to round up so many golf carts?

What a bunch of un-American liberal pu*****, right Boaz?

At the front of the parade I want flag holders carrying the flags of the nations we invaded during the last 60 years, and I want them held high to represent the facts that we didn't win in any of those wars. Then the jingoist militarists can follow and show us all how proud they are of their many failures. Perhaps we should also include a column filled with all the living politicians who led us astray into those unnecessary wars, at the head of the line should be Dubya with his whole bunch of war mongers who sold the nation on the invasion of Iraq. Fruit and vegetable treats should be served to them much as they served napalm to villagers, i.e. by air.

We can call it the "Million Tramp March"

If I were at work and my boss came by to tell me to drop everything in order to have a parade, I would think it was a waste of time meant to make my boss happy.

That's because it is an incredibly retarded idea.

Glad to see that it provides an outlet for everyone's TDS, however.

We're opposing a dictator. We don't know what you're doing.

Anyone can vote in Military Times' polls, so this result could have been assisted by 20,000 Shawn's attempting to obfuscate a more accurate outcome.

At least that's a good idea. Saves the Navy having to drag a missile cruiser down the street.

"We can call it the "Million Tramp March""

Or, "Dotard's Vietnam Service."

#15 | Posted by danni at 2018-02-10 12:42 PM | Reply

Or the Russian Hospitality Tape march.

"Hope you enjoyed your visit with us."

Military parades are done by weak countries to look strong.

WHen strong countries do them they look weak.

Or in our case, just stupid.

So why are you constantly defending someone who has incredibly retarded ideas?

This idea came from the same retarded brain as tax cuts for the wealthy.

Not really. The tax cuts are just standard Republican doctrine. The tax policy he campaigned on called for higher taxes on the rich.

So you concede Donald cheats on his wife? He doesn't.

Boaz,

Weren't you the one just talking about "family values" and how conservatives supposedly have them? Where does cheating on your pregnant wife fall into those "values"?

See... liberals generally take a "live and let live" mentality to sexuality and relationships. If your relationship works for you then who are we to judge. But conservatives, on the other hand, like to TELL YOU and ENFORCE what type of relationship they think you should have. Because they want to ENFORCE their "values" on everyone else.

I could care less about who Bill messes around with. That is between him and Hillary (though if Hillary says she feels like he betrayed her, I would take that into account in my view of his character). I could also care less who Trump messes around with.

BUT, he was supported and elected by CONSERVATIVES and CHRISTIANS (sic) who are always SOOOOO patronizing and high and mighty about their "values" and "morals".

But it is becoming increasing obvious to EVERYONE that is all BS. That conservatives HAVE NO morals or values, and neither do Christians. Christians just want to distract people from the fact that they are diddling little children (boys for catholics, girls for evangelicals).

But... continue on. Defend your hero Trump. You are unmasking your true self, and millennials are paying attention. They are fleeing religion, and fleeing the conservative party. They are fleeing the hypocrisy of the Baby Boomers.

This is actually good for the country. The only way you remove a cancer is by recognizing it for what it really is (and recognizing that it is not what it pretends to be).
