No parades until every veteran has a home, and physical and mental health coverage.
The 5 time draft dodging "Cadet Bone spur" thinks it would be cool to have a parade. How much would it cost the American people to repair the streets of DC after the tanks chew it up? I hope the veterans of KU find it fitting to engage Congressman Ted Poe and Senator John Cornyn to put monies to helping veterans and to abstain from his self grandstanding need to have a parade.
I truly hope the special counsel finds grounds to impeach Trump, and imprison his kids too.
No..The Clinton's never demanded a parade nor did either claim "bone spurs" as a reason to not go to Vtnm. Finally neither of the Clinton's are the sitting president calling for a gov shut down. But B. Clinton was impeached for lying to the FBI. I find it odd that Saturn's hypocrisy doesn't make her blow chunks.
Saturn, do you still support your choice of Trump? Even tho you've been lied to by a carnival barker Trump? There is a word for that....Suckered.

" In mid-1968 Clinton, who maintained that although he was not opposed to the military or war in general he was morally opposed to the Vietnam War in particular, began to seek ways of avoiding the draft. His first opportunity was provided through the political and social connections of Raymond Clinton, his uncle, and Henry Britt, a Hot Springs lawyer and former judge, who made arrangements with the commanding officer of the local Naval Reserve unit, Trice Ellis, to secure a billet for Clinton in the naval reserve:
The first relief Raymond Clinton and Britt found for Bill was a naval billet. This would not only give him more time ? he would not have to fill it until after the school year ended in June ? but it also would more likely keep him out of harm?s way in the war. Trice Ellis, the local naval commander, said he was only too happy to accommodate the request, which he did not consider out of the ordinary, and was ?impressed by the chance to enlist someone with a college education.? He called the Navy command in New Orleans and secured a two-year active duty billet for young Clinton. Ellis assumed that Clinton would stop by that summer for an interview, but Clinton never did. When he asked Raymond Clinton what happened, Raymond told him not to worry, Bill would not be coming, he had been taken care of in another way.
The ?other way? that had ?taken care? of Clinton was a favor Henry Britt worked out with William S. Armstrong, chairman of the Garland County draft board, a favor that would provide Clinton with only temporary protection from the draft but would allow him to at least start his first year at Oxford without committing him to military service"
Clinton was, and is, a draft dodger just like Trump then, eh? Not some protected "special" draft dodger.
Deflection has become the norm. No one wants to think that they spent 8 yrs criticizing someone only to have to defend what they used to criticize...it would mean admitting you?re a hypocrite. And no one wants to do that...
Personally I think being a Rhodes scholar trumps bone spurs...but avoiding VD was Trump?s viet nam...lol
Unfortunately personal opinions don't trump facts. If two men who were President both evaded military service, they're the SAME. The same. They both are guilty of exactly the same thing. One isn't better than the other when they're both draft dodgers.

What's that got to do with it? I thought this thread was about the " military being thrilled Trump was a 5 time draft dodger?" And I wonder where Mark went??
