    I hope he doesn’t actually do this. I would prefer we didn’t act like a totalitarian country and there’s no need to flex our muscle. Not to mention....can we even afford this?

    Ever see what a hot 70 ton tank will do to warm asphalt? Pennsylvania avenue isn't Red Square and doesn't have cobblestone streets. Where are you going to put everyone? Tiananmen square is over 100 acres in size. Red Square is huge too. They were designed for big public displays. Seems like a grotesque waste of money. You aren't Napoleon, or Putin, Stalin, or Kim. If France had a four hour parade, Trump will want bigger and better, so a six hour parade at least. Could not all of that money go to veterans, or for VA hospitals, or other useful programs. The money and logistics must make the costs prohibitive.

    Do you think Trump will want candy thrown to the crowds?

    Well the military personnel are already getting payed regardless of where they are n I’d bet there will b plenty of volunteers. So basically ur paying for fuel in tanks trucks etc. don’t see it being anything to crazy. N if it makes Americans proud n happy I think the benefits will outweigh the negatives. We should b proud of our military.

    Like cats chasing a laser pointer. Only cure for you all is lead. Lots and lots of lead.
