    So for the cost of one Trump golf outing the annual POW run is being canceled for good. This really shows how much Trump hates the military. The $300,000 expense to rent the Pentegon parking lot is pure bullshit.

    It is a shame they are charged at all. Doesn't our tax dollars already pay for that parking lot and other areas. This is for a great cause and they should be bending over backwards to accommodate them.

    Just like the media, you mislead readers to suit your agenda.
    It's $60,000 for parking lot rental. (still outrageous)
    The other cost comes in the form porta-potties, advertising, police escorts, etc.

    There is no reason to exaggerate the facts here...the costs of just one of trump's weekends in Palm Beach and golf outings at his own golf clubs (putting U.S. Treasury funds in his own businesses) would pay for Rolling Thunder for several years. I don't think he "hates the military" as much as he loves them for whatever benefit that he can get from saying he "loves" them. He does nothing tangible for them that he doesn't get some benefit...and they all have done more for their country than he could ever dream of doing--he couldn't make a pimple on a dedicated and loyal military member's ass.

    Seeing the videos of the Rolling Thunder motorcycles/riders and those lining the streets for as far as the eye can see is the real vision of those who love the military.

    This is the kind of thing that makes America great!

    so how much does it cost the organizers of the event to use that parking lot at the end of the day? 60,000 or 300,000?

    According to the article in the first post of this thread the rental fee for the parking lot at the Pentagon is $60,000.

    When people have their facts correct anyone trying to argue against it doesn’t stand a chance. Truth should and does matter, IMO. Don’t give ‘em any ammo to try and change the subject away from the substance of the issues. Just my 2-cents worth!

    I would have expected nothing less from him or his friends. I know them as 'Liars Are Us'..... They've grown to adapt to 'fake news reporting' like it was some sort of game. You know, sometimes you just have to call them out on the carpet once and a while. Thanks for putting them on the straight and narrow again. They seem to love to take facts and twist them around like it's some sort of Rubik's cube or something. "Stick to the facts"? Don't hold your breath. And to mislead folks on a sad subject as the 'Rolling Thunder'!! Sad, very sad indeed!! God Bless Our Vets And those who gave their all for the security of this great country and hope all prisoners are released soon!!! And for the record::

    “It cost us $60,000 just to rent the Pentagon parking lot, about $200,000 for the whole ball of wax — to promote the POW/MIA issue and veterans causes,” Dante said. “So that’s one of the main reasons.”

    Your are talking about trump here, right.

    7,000 lies by trump so far. Now, that is some seriously factual and proven news

    Let me remind you of one that is real relevant right now. "I will build a wall a beautiful wall and Mexico will pay for it".

    Are you going to tell us that trump did not say that? Quotes in this and previous post.

    But not in the numbers as in the past. I'd bet the Marine will be there on the island with a salute.

    This government has been trying to bury the POW-MIA issue since it started. Just like Agent Orange and PTSD. It is friggin' disgusting.

    Wasn’t the campaign promise actually that Mexico would pay for the wall? So, why is moron-boy asking Congress for the money and closing down our government? Shouldn’t he be closing down Mexico instead? Maybe sue them for not paying? Of course they could always pull a “trump” and claim bankruptcy and not pay “their bill” like he does...

    Good try...but no cigar, i’ll Get back to you after I pick up my groceries at Kroger later and tell them I will pay for them in some alternate way, no with money, check, or credit or debit card. Maybe I will pay by giving them a good review online or encouraging others to shop there. I’ll let you know how that works out. Regardless, if Mexico is going to somehow pay, why does he need $$$ from Congress? Besides, why in the heck should Mexico pay anyway? Why is it their responsibility? Maybe I can just have Kroger send Jeffrey the bill for my groceries...

    Um, cause it's their citizens running back and fourth through THEIR tunnels they constucted that the moles have constructed FROM THE MEXICO SIDE to import drugs into our country. Mexico evicts their worst criminals into the USA...MS13, etc.... IF we can stop the drug flow into the USA from Mexico, we've probably cleaned up 3/4 of the drug problem which grew under Obutthole and his idiots. I also hear that Oprah and her useful idiots used them when they left American after the great Mr. Trump was elected. I see there's many more that should have followed but I understand they are a bit on the slow side....

    It not exactly like Obama invented drug abuse. Weren’t you aware of drug abuse long before anyone ever heard the name “Obama.” Fact remains if the junkies weren’t using drugs and there was no market for them, they wouldn’t bother bringing them in. Kinda like Yugos...when people said they didn’t want them, they stopped manufacturing and importing them.
