    CBS, ABC. and NBC are not televising the event. If somebody really wants to watch it for some reason, they would have to go to FOX or C-Span.

    The heads of the Army, Navy, Air Force and the Marines will not be in attendance.

    The Founding Fathers had a few words about Trump in the Declaration of Independence. Here is the FULL TEXT:

    Here is the part that is relevant:

    "A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people."

    Mayor Pete also had a few thoughts about the parade:

    I have been watching and its soooo second rate. It has look and feel of weekend promotion at a car dealership where they get some balloons, a few side shows acts, and past-his-prime celebrity sign autographs.

    Wait until next year, he will demand the military be much more involved. More tanks, more guns, more planes, and nuclear missile.

    And how this for a title "PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP PRESENTS: Making America Great Again.... Featuring the US Military, Music by gun slinger Ted Nugent, with special guest appearances by reality TV Stars...."

    I hope you are right; but don't forget that the Romanov's lasted also for a while; the revolt came when the "poor" people got fed up. That is not the case in this country; don't forget "god" sent him. It gets more "sick" per day with this total idiot, but he still may win 2020 because the people have no notion what is going on. At least Arizona is trying very hard to give the total picture.

    Bring the barf bucket fast, please!

    "the revolt came when the "poor" people got fed up. That is not the case in this country; don't forget "god" "

    Dutch, This country has all the ingredients for a revolution and then a lot more. The only thing preventing a revolution is the immenseness of the country. Over 4000 people suffer more dying earlier denied health care. That's 80 people a state. Not enough to generate a sensational reaction. But more and more locations are showing more and more impoverished people asking for help. And Trump gets a 90 million dollar parade while the poor eat cake. All the conditions are there. A concealing voice is all that is needed and then life styles of the rich and famous will be called to task demanded to answer why so many people have to suffer more dying earlier denied healthcare . The drug companies justify high and continually higher prices to fund research. Once it is realized by almost half the country that the research they pay for discovers new drugs that only can be afforded by the rich and famous then will be a day of reckoning. Trump and Trumps won't be able to shame people into submission for demanding basic rights.

    Yes Chet; lots of people in this country have no clue whatsoever what is happening in Washington. Like you said about "healthcare" ; if you go to Spain the drug costs are one tenth of what they are here; how come? Because "lobbying" is not allowed and they have to "prove" the cost to make the drug. Neither become the CEO's billionaires; they will be taxed 75%. Also don't forget the "add's" here on TV; the cost of those is of course added to the sale price etc.

    Also because all the "representatives" in the government get the "handouts" , so because of that, everyone in Washington "profits" from it, then forget low "drug" or low "doctors" cost. Everyone is on the take. My wife visited an doctor who had an $3 million McLaren parked in front of the office. Scott of FL made fortunes on hospitals and is now filling his pockets again in Washington. Ever seen an hospital bill? Do I have to say anything more?

    I watched about 3 minutes of Trump's speech. Once I realized it was 37 minutes long, I shut it off so that my brain wouldn't atrophy. In that 3 minutes, he mentioned "the space force" and planting the U.S. flag on Mars.

    Gag.

    The folks that had the patience to listen to the entire speech noticed that he had stated that the army of the Continental army had taken over the airports. He also claimed that the Continental army had saved Fort McHenry, which actually did not happen until 1812.

    Here's picture that you probably have not seen before:

    This is Washington crossing the Delaware to secure a nearby rampart after winning the battle of Reagan National.

    I did not watch anything at all; there was an heavy thunderstorm here so watched Netflix. Anyway who is writing the bill for this "nothing" happening? I saw some pictures of the "crowd" and I now believe half of this country is still in diapers.

    Anyway, I'm still questioning, who allowed all of this? I did not hear anything at all from the Dem's about this total waste as well the "promotion" to "dictatorship" by doing so.

    How come that he can read "Mein Kampf" correctly, but does not know anything at all about the history of his own country, let alone knowing anything about "aviation" or "tariffs" or "the Fed". and what little children want at the border.

    The New York Review of Books has put together a collection of propaganda parades involving tanks of some of the world's worst dictators. Trump is not a full dictator - yet - but these pictures really capture his mindset.

    Well as reported Trump got the rain and he blames it for misrepresenting the teleprompter. As reported by Yahoo News. Expanding previous comments:

    "President Donald Trump gave a nonsensical answer to a question about his nonsensical comments during his July 4 speech in which he claimed Revolutionary War soldiers “took over airports.”

    "“Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over airports, it did everything it had to do,” Trump said in his remarks at the Lincoln Memorial on Thursday. “And at Fort McHenry, under the rockets’ red glare, had nothing but victory. When dawn came, the star-spangled banner waved defiant.”

    He later told reporters on the White House lawn. “And I guess the rain knocked out the teleprompter, but I knew the speech very well, so I was able to do it without a teleprompter.”

    Why can't he ever admit he just made a mistake and got his facts wrong?

    Trump commented that today's NY parade for the USA women soccer\football team was a total waste tax payers dollars, and besides Trump said his parade on the 4th of July was lots bigger than theirs, so big you wouldn't believe it. Biggest parade in history. His had tanks, theirs didn't. He had a fly over, theirs didn't. His was bigger, so he wins.... according to Trump.

    Fox news had no coverage of the USA Women team parade so not to upset Donald Trump.

    Trump's salute to himself cost Washington D.C. $1.7 million, and the special security fund used for those costs is now bankrupt. On top of that, the Trump campaign STILL owes the city $7.3 million for costs incurred for his "coronation".

    https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/7/10/1870718/-Trump-s-July-Fourth-Me-O-Rama-cost-D-C-1-7-million-and-the-city-s-emergency-fund-is-now-bankrupt?detail=emaildkre

    None of the matters, of course, to Trump supporters, since he mentioned two Catholics someplace in his speech.
