DAA Indivisible/We Need a Military Parade Like We Need to Add to 45’s Deficit

Mussolini, Hitler and Stalin had some MEMORABLE parades, so I can understand 45’s interest. However, we like to imagine that we are a democracy, funded by taxpayers, and we the people have some competing interests. .

“A parade as discussed would probably cost millions to arrange, destroy DC’s streets that aren’t prepared for such hardware, and take away actual training time,” Defense News Senior Pentagon Correspondent Aaron Mehta tweeted. “Today SecDef Mattis went to Congress and begged for a budget because he doesn’t have money for vital training.”(Business Insider)

While 45 is focused on the military,let’s callthe White House, our congressman and senators, and make enough noise to put this one to bed. Say something like: I have a comment on the president’s military parade proposal.

A military parade would cost millions, and destroy DC’s streets. Let’s fix military housing, hire more VA doctors, fund telehealth, DOD schools, support the commissaries, daycare for families, and give more flight training time before we stoke the president’s need for flamboyance. Our highest defense priority must be the service members.
