    yes, bring all our troops home, close all overseas bases, then after the parade, have them secure our borders and start kicking out the illegals. Build bases along our borders and let our local communities prosper from our troops' monies. We no longer need overseas bases.

    Some people are like a slinky, not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you push them down the stairs.

    we won't have a parade like NK, or Russia, or China

    we'll have one like France
    with brie an' everything

    And I agree with Knotty, roll back the military to our borders like the rest of the world

    No, spend that money on training or more air time for pilots.

    We have ~1000 bases in 80 countries. Let's close 1/2 of those, and with all the $ saved, then we can have a parade.
    Or, we can print more $, at the costs of our grandkids, and have it now...

    There's probably enough savings here to have one every month of the year.

    Agreed. That would be a good start.

    Actual quote

    O’Neill, a conservative, had dinner with Trump at the White House in October.

    A military parade is third world bull****. We prepare. We deter. We fight. Stop this conversation,” O’Neill tweeted Thursday.

    Lol, I had to censor my quote because the long form BS came through unaltered.

    Reckon what the fly overs at sports venues cost the taxpayer?

    If it’s a fighter it’s around $10k per flight hour per aircraft. But it is also used as a training flight for those pilots. They are required X amount of stick time per month.

    another waste
    foolish too

    guess who else thinks this parade is a foolish waste
    the service guys and gals
    army times did a poll and found that 89 percent of respondents said it was a waste of time and resources

    The people who hate parades the most are those who have to be in them. Trust me, I know from experience.
