really a pretty dumb post.

1) like any President arranges their own security

2) I'm an ex 82nd Airborne paratrooper and can tell you it wouldn't hurt my feelings to be in a parade without a weapon. In fact, I would really not have been in ANY of the parades in which I participated, but maybe that's just me

3) you really want to honor your veterans - then be willing to pay the taxes needed to take care of their rehab, their PTSD, their hospitals, their widows and widowers and their children. That would be really honoring them. My honor isn't trotted out for holidays - it is 365.

Parades are window dressing. Get real.
