Will even ONE Republican

stand up and say "$92 million for a military parade is a colossal waste of taxpayer money and not what we are about"?

I'm not holding my breath.

This really pisses me off! Whatever happened to repairing infrastructure, health care for everyone, and education funding!

1. Squander our tax money on a Mickey Mouse Military Parade OR on Luxury Golf for a Billionaire?

republicans have gotten creative in response to this quandry. They are going to squander our hard-earned tax dollars on BOTH a military parade to honor a five-time republican draft-dodger, AND on glorious, luxurious, gourmet golden golf goof-offs for a self-proclaimed billionaire.

When it comes to squandering our tax money, the republicans are Top Dogs.

3. Money to fluff Trumps ego is a-okay, money for sick and poor people is evil

They're authoritarians like him, so they are totally on board with whatever the cost.

4. Have Any Congressional Dems (House/Senate) Made Any Comments About....

this parade and the spending. Seems to me that it's a good issue to campaign on.

Is this military parade before or after the midterms?

8. I don't know!

The parade is after the midterms...so Cadet Bonespurs who was awarded the STD medal for consistently avoiding a disease...can bask in the love that the military has for him!!!

10. I Just Verified It - This Parade Is 4 Days After The Midterms.....

and the potential 'blue wave' for the Dems to take back the House (and I'm hoping that they can also take back the Senate).

I'm not sure that Trump and the Repugs will have a lot to celebrate. Might this be a show of force by Trump and the Repugs to not relinquish their power grab on Congress.

11. Scared shitless of Trump's Unhinged mob sending death threats or worse...you know it...witness

the events at The Globe today, and many more examples of what happens when you telll truth and counter Fox and Trump lies and hate with even a mild protest.

Fascism takes root in fear.
