It's not the end of the world, but the fact that 90 million dollars is being wasted on a Trump fest is pretty stunning. That 90 million could go toward helping a lot of people, namely the migrant children at the border who aren't getting bathed, fed and cared for properly.

I have to admit, his aspirations were a little high at that point, lol. Sure as hell isn't happening with even the puny regulations we had in place being reversed though. At least we were trying under Obama.

Hehe, but you have to admit that that was a bit megalomaniac as well! My point being, that anyone who makes it to the presidency, most likely has such tendencies.

And this right here is the problem. I pay taxes too, but don't want the parade. Many of the military chiefs are having a little heartburn themselves because they know how Trump will politicize even the most non-political event.

Now who has more credibility? The man who led the D-day invasion? Or the man who dodged the draft with an ingrown toenail?

And the next time we get a leftist in the White House, they will blow the cash on illegals and abortions for transgenders instead.

One group of tax payers always gets screwed over, such is life.

Hehe, a first time for everything! Let's heal this nation!

But, in all seriousness, I feel like Trump is wanting to send a message to North Korea, China and Iran. I personally, don't really like the thought of the tanks and the military aspect, but I suspect that is what he's thinking.
