      Ignorance or intentional dis-information ?!

      I'm strongly tempted towards the red rep just for the obnoxious blast thru my speakers. Very Rude!

      Your TDS delusions duelly noted.

      Suck it up. Your lousey team lost and this Nation might avoid further spiraling down the drain. Some of the rest of the world might be spared following our "alternate" wake under the socialist-Demoncrats and the Wicked Witch of the East with her flying monkeys, et. al.

      Options may not have been the optimal on either side, but here at a military history forum we should all, as students, have encountered such muddied fields before.

      The USA military has a heritage and tradition of being a Citizens Legion in defense of Ideals and Rights basic to Humankind's Nature and Origins expressed as Freedon, Liberty, and Prosperity in Common Cause, and such an orgnizational entity is beyond the thrall of personality.

      You really haven't a clue as to what the USA is, in either it's origins or it's lineage. Trump had no "brownshirts", there is no SS to infiltrate the USA military forces, there is no ideological monolith on the Right compareable to that we find on the Left. Trump's election victory is the "herd of cats" finding a collective voice, for a likely brief moment in time.

      Concept totally alien to most lefty Loonies.

            “Being a great president has to do with a lot of things, but one of them is being a great cheerleader for the country,” Trump said. “And we’re going to show the people as we build up our military, we’re going to display our military.

            “That military may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue. That military may be flying over New York City and Washington, D.C., for parades. I mean, we’re going to be showing our military,” he added.
            But Trump acknowledged that slogans and showmanship will not be the ultimate tests of whether the country is “great again.”

            The president-elect has an ambitious to-do list for the next four years: building stronger borders, keeping the country safe against terrorism, producing more jobs, repealing the Affordable Care Act, replacing it with something better, promoting excellence in engineering and science, investing in modern infrastructure.

            It's mostly the fiscal/blood-sucking parasites of our nation gnashing their teeth over Trump beating out Clinton.

              So you see US troops as Nazis.

              Interesting.

              I take it you never served.
              Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                      The WAPO article is PC gone overboard. The US already has military parades. Military functions occur all around the USA.

                      Calling someone a nazi when they merely propose a different viewpoint has become a semi popular thing for some Clinton supporters. I have been called Gobbles for merely suggesting that Saladin and Richard the Lionheart were men of honor. But also, some Trumpsters label those who support great Arab Muslim knights of the middle ages as Nazis. To some, if you say well I stand by the Crusaders then your a Nazi. On a popular gambling form I was a member of(which was more or less liberal) I took great flak merely for being supportive of my ancestors whom took up Crusade. Africans should be proud of the African empires, Europeans should be proud of European Kingdoms, the list goes on and on.

                      The only people who should be called Nazis are third reich members/supporters of ww2 as well as those of today who admire the Third Reich and perhaps want a 4th Reich to rise.


                      Barack Obama is not a ISIL member.

                      Hillary Clinton is not a ISIL member.

                      Donald Trump is not a Nazi.

                        Don't you live in New York City? By your rationale, we're actually living in Nuremberg, since The Fighting 69th has opened the Saint Patrick's Day Parade virtually every year since 1851.



                        Look: McNazis.

                            All the guy did was post a picture. Cult Icon has done nothing to warrant being told he has not a clue as to what the USA is. Folks are allowed to call Obama an ISIL member, folks are allowed to call Trump a Nazi....that is free will for ya. And we have the free will to disagree.

                              I edited your response for brevity.

                              Greatness can be measured by a society's way of life. No society can call itself great when there are grown adults living without a home.

                              A guy like Hitler would call for "undesirables" or "useless eaters" to be thrown in a camp or deported from the Third Reich. I find that History teaches us that we need to totally eradicate homelessness and poverty...this is how we accomplish world peace.

                              A Hitler would suggest that the left or right want to bring down the country. There are good democrats and good republicans....and this last one most be given consideration by all Americans. Its not righteous to blanket criticize all liberals or all conservatives.


                              There have been some thread titles here on ACG where the term left, liberal or progressive is combined with some sort of offensive term...and we also have a # of threads that use offensive language toward Trump....cant we all just get along.

                                Just be happy they can walk upright: though most these days are not actually of Irish descent, since all members of the 69th are "honorary Irishmen," most of them show up for the parade half in the bag. They're partial to their official regimental drink: champagne and Irish whiskey.
