Re: To correct the record on past Prez/4th celebrations...
Posted by MikeC/TX of TX on 7/7/19 4:33pm Msg #72610
How they celebrated it and whether they inserted themselves in the middle of a national celebration are two very different things. Trump tried to turn it into a partisan celebration by excluding the Dems, and for once the networks weren't buying it - as far as I know, none of them broadcast it live.

Independence Day is not a celebration of the military and never has been - the name itself should tell you that - it's a celebration of the day we declared our independence from a tyrant. Yes, there may be events featuring the military, but that is NOT what the day is about.

And when I said "military parades', I meant the type of parade that you see in Russia, China, North Korea, etc. - a parade featuring military equipment, a show of strength. Why do you think the senior people in the Pentagon were opposed to this? Why do you think none of the heads of the services were in attendance? They saw this as a pointless waste of money and manpower.
