    C'mon y'all, this isn't even a good quote. I don't give a shit about having contemporary politics on this sub or whatever, but let's at least keep the bar set at "somewhat thought-provoking".

    But it’s already paid for, the pilots and personnel have their salary and we already own the equipment. We’re just asking them to show up

    Seriously?! The military is just another subset of humanity. There are a shit ton of good, honest, hardworking folks and a handful of lazy fucks, plus a very small percentage of total shitbags sprinkled in. The closer you get to the top the more politics you encounter...guys trying to make it to retirement without exposing all the corruption they have to look past. The military is no more trustworthy than mankind, in general. (And, yes, I’m a veteran. I served my time and speak from personal experience.) However, I do agree that politicizing it, (or any group, incident, or institution), is just lame-ass deflection. But lame-ass deflection is what politicians do best. And anyone that buys into it, gets what they deserve.

    Someone should probably let Andrew know that the military does a lot of marketing. It's heavily visible on holidays like the 4th of july and gee, I dunno, memorial day, veterans day? They are promoted at nearly every major sporting event with everything from color guard to fly-overs. They even have their own Nascar team and a Monster Truck. This isn't new. It's part of the marketing strategy to get people to sign up.

    Great opportunity for President Trump to get pictures and snips of liberals protesting the 4th of July.

    Tremendous expense, yes, but how is a 4th of July parade political? Hell, Kennedy had a literal submarine on wheels and ballistic missles in his inauguration parade.

    “You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”  ― Erma Bombeck

    “Prohibits government employees and resources from political activity” HAHAHAHAHA like that has been followed by most government entities throughout the years.

    I dont get the context. While I do not agree with everything Yang supports he is pretty well spoken and backs up everything he says with reason and logic. Great guy. He was great on The Joe Rogan Experience https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTsEzmFamZ8

    The left politicizes EVERYTHING and then gets mad when Trump gives them the opportunity to show just how much they hate America.

    What a stupid comment. Without the military and its sacrifices there would be no 4th of July. We did not win our independence by debating the value of freedom but with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

    Really?! How does Trump do any of the stupid shit that he does?! I hate that POS, but I understand that he knows PR. The reason he’s putting the tanks out there is so that his militaristic base will get all jazzed, (or jizzed), about seeing our military might on full display. Sadly, there’s a certain percentage of eligible voters that get pretty excited by blowing shit up.

    The Pentagon is the number one polluter in the world. If the military isn’t dismantled, human beings will go extinct. I’m going to be brutally honest, the number of upvotes on this post makes me wanna commit suicide. We are in serious danger. The person reading this comment may die of starvation in a few decades.

    I trust our military to waste our money, kill innocent people in the name of empire, create cool technology, and whoop ass at a moment's notice but they are a VERY long shot as being the most trusted institution in our country, imo
