Heil Trumpler

Our illustrious leader has just
announced that he’s planning to have a ”Grand Military Parade” (his words).

It seems that a few years back there
was a guy named “Adolph” who also liked military parades.

Grump vs. the Un

I think Kim Jong Un likes to have them too and the only reason Grump wants one is that he wants to outdo the North Korean dictator.


My parade is bigger than your parade

or "My button is bigger than your button"



Mmm... Pennsylvania Ave torn to bits by tank treads. That will be nice. (my inner-DC response...)

If I were Trump's advisor, and trying to talk him out of it, I would suggest that a US military parade would be a sign of weakness. The team at the top doesn't need one... it is for all the smaller countries trying to look big and bad... not for a country that IS big and bad. Do this and it implies we're no longer number one.

If I were sneaky and mean, I'd suggest he go view troops in action, on the battlefield. That will show you are tough and on top, unafraid of anything.

The DC parade I'd like to see would be a civil service parade, showing off the thousands of people doing ordinary gov't work. Or a spy parade. Not sure how you'd do a spy parade, but I'd love to see it.


Local Parade

It's comforting to know that we have a parade that features teeny-bop cows instead of heavy artillery.


I want to see the real

As a taxpayer paying for this parade driven over our failing infrastruture, I want to see the real Stealth Fighter Jet, but painted another color beside midnight black(boring) with a bloody shark tooth grin painted on it's cock pit maybe, if there is one. I would also like to see other top secrete UFO's come out of hiding to march and the amazing aerial display of our famous Sopwith Camel and Snoops floats above with a Woodstock Drone along side doing erratic barrel rolls, then cheese doodle confetti raining down to gorge on, a perfect storm of endless junk food for those ultra-patriotic, militaristic to the core present in the several hundreds. A nice touch would be Melania Trump waving and smiling to the crowd riding in a tank Mike Dukakis style with an over sized helmet and a "he's not with me" pink T- shirt.

When the second booster fires off for a show of force (thank you Elon Musk) in front of the president's viewing stand, I hope it doesn't muss up and flip the commander and chief boss's brilliant, streaming comb over and expose the void or hollow, mini missile silo(psych-low-IQ), what a glorious day that will be, yes in our finest hour, not! Let the games begin! Make sure you have that armageddon warning app for your phone.
