    Clyde, you know that the docs at induction didn't "discover" Trump's malady, he showed up with a letter from a Dr who nobody remembers stating that he had bone spurs. The letter was composed shortly after Trump lost his student deferment. Trump played sports all through college and he stated this foot malady was real short lived (presumably recovery started soon after being granted a deferment).

    Sorry if that analyses makes this crowd angry, but there were a lot of people who avoided the draft by any means necessary so this veteran is suspicious of very rich boys having short term ailments.

    At this point, what difference does it make?

    Just about none, because he's now President. It was one of the many things to consider during the elections and apparently was no big deal.

    What gets me is the credence that is given to "unnamed sources". Anyone can say anything at any time and it turns into a grand mal problem. Wake up, you are getting played.

    The news media has been corrupt for a few decades now. The cultural Marxists have invaded the schools, universities, and media. By swaying the populace in the direction of Humanism instead of Divine authority and rule of law, what you get is everybody for themselves and even violence towards non-conformists. This is very bad and I am surprised just how evasive it is in the government already. These people want authority over the masses; so if they can't get our guns, they'll get into lackadaisacally-minded people and convince them the wrong way is the only way. Trump is human and he's not a career politician, so all the Marxists can do now is make a big deal out of every little thing he says or does, again, to sway the people in the wrong direction. Both Hillary and 'bama did more to help our enemies and hinder our allies than any two people have ever done in the course of our history. Yet, the Marxists are making a big deal out of Trump getting two scoops of ice cream and possibly evading the draft and if that won't do, they'll make things up like the ties to Russia (Hillary sold them uranium!!!!!) and now saying something he shouldn't have to the "Russians". Wake up America! Trump is drawing the snakes out from under the rocks without even trying. Are you a free thinking American or a Marxist following the corrupt media and supporting protection of illegals over citizens and rioting against our police?

    It is funny how the Liberals talk about Trump evading the draft but they voted for Clinton a draft dodger. Even worse they were willing to put his corrupt wife in the White House and by default Slick Willie as well.

    That list of media connections to Dems is proof that all MSM is Fake News.

    I just hope Trump sits back and relaxes and ignores all the BS. Making rash decisions and firing those who got him here will be bad for him and bad for America.

    Exactly.

    I have some "un-named sources" that have told me tremendously terrible implications about many people on this board.

    Were I to air them thusly, they would get zero consideration whatsoever.

    If I however proclaim them to be about Trump, by golly a bunch of folks will buy off on them like gospel spoken directly from the mouth of Jesus................

    NB, You are a stand up guy to have served. Thank you for your service.

    In our day, it was normal for folks to evade RA/regular service by any means available. Clinton did not do it by normal legal means. Trump may or may not have done it but he did not violate law or lie like Clinton did. Clinton got a total pass in spite of documented evidence he evaded the draft.

    Many folks simply joined the Reserve or NG. Only one year, 1972, did student deferments not apply and I was there. I choose to serve and how to serve.

    If your draft number was high, you did not need a deferment. You were off hook and if Trump was over 300 there is no way he could be drafted. It was the draft lottery and if you won you were done. That was the way the law worked so what is the issue???

    He should have fired Comey sooner. I think the head of the FBI should stay out of politics as much as possible, not get in front of a camera every chance he gets. I never remember the head of the FBI holding as many news conferences as this guy did.
    As far as the media goes, even my few friends on the left don't trust the news anymore. It's all propaganda.

    Let's give the "Trump/Russia/Collusion" Conspiracy Theory the 3.7 seconds of actual consideration it really doesn't deserve, but let's try it anyhow....

    Ok,,,,,, for the sake of argument, Trump was colluding, planning, communicating, and all the other stuff "colluding" entails, with The Russian Government so that he could beat Hitlery The Wonderful.

    Ok,,,,, that "collusion" had to be going on AT LEAST from June 2016, right under the govt.'s nose(s).

    The FBI investigation (legality of it is undetermined as yet) of Trump, and his people, and Russia, started the next month, July.

    The FBI couldn't find the collusion.
    The CIA couldn't find the collusion.
    The NSA couldn't find the collusion.
    Nobody from the Obama administration could find, or catch, LET ALONE PROVE the collusion prior to Hitlery's loss.
    No-one from the Obama administration was able to find the collusion between Hitlery's loss and the Inauguration, 2 1/2 months later.
    (Even that worthless skin-waste Maxine Waters states that there is still no actual "evidence" of the "collusion")

    What does this say about the competence of the Obama administration and the people working for it???????? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm........................
    Smells like "Gross Incompetence" to me.

    Someone else put it as follows:
    The vast left-wing conspiracists also want for us to overlook that if their insinuations are correct, this convicts Barack Obama and his party of gross incompetence. Given their expressions of certitude until the 11th hour that Clinton would clean Trump’s clock, they clearly had no clue that a hostile foreign power was “undermining” the integrity of our electoral process right under their collective nose.

    How, on their watch, was Putin able to sabotage their electoral prospects and subvert the votes of the nearly 60 million or so Deplorables who, according to the (il)logic of the conspiracy theory, would otherwise have voted for Clinton?
    Yet, somehow, Putin and the buffoon “colluded” so as to make all of this happen.

I see you are defending him by talking about Obama or both Clinton's. lol This posting is about President trump and Comey. By the way what do you think about trump giving are secrets to Russia? I know you will spin that to. How many lies do you think trump told in 4 months? I hear its around 144 lies. Hey trump no George Washington. Do you think trump with be impeach in 2017 or 2018??

    Clinton is a Draft Dodger but so is Trump. Trump number was call and he got a Doctor excuse to get out of the draft. He said his foot hurt. Trump also got several deferments for college. I had to laugh when you said Trump didn't lie! How do you know that? Where you there? Trump lies all the time. How do we except our kids to tell the truth when they see and hear Trump the President lie all the time. I to am a Vietnam Veteran.

    My 2 cents: I've very much enjoyed this thread. I'm glad Comey was fired. As a gun owner, Trump was the only candidate I could vote for. I would vote for him again today. This is only my 5th post, so feel free to call me a newbie, troll, etc...

    Comey was going to get fired no matter who won the election, rightfully so. Don't forget Gorsuch is in, thank God. Trump has done plenty. Leftist trolls, please find somewhere else to post while eating sandwiches made by your mothers in your Che onesies down in the basement.

    The media is out to get him big time. Those of us that stand with him had best be loyal until/if he has really shown to have violated the constitution. We need him to appoint over 100 Federal Judges. Just look at the 9th Circus and its recent BS, overturned 80%. He must stack the court for our gun rights and to maintain our Rep. Republic. The media wants us to be a France or Socialist country. We must resist. It is not about Trump, it is about our guns and our lives

    Trump may be less than perfect communication, like Bush 2, but underlying is a solid guy for our guns, health care, etc..

    No way, a "wish" is a legal obstruction of justice. Please Dembocrocks, start and impeachment. You will get election results worse in 2018 than the backlash after the justifiable Billy bob impeachment. Overturn the election, that was legit, and it kick them in the butt. Please have it.

    Do we really want someone to choose our President via CNN, NYT, WP, etc..

    Liberals are getting so excited. It's great that they are in for just another let down.

    The one clown is so excited he is just making random post after random post. Assuming anyone knows who he is referring to.

    Hopefully Dems continue to try and obstruct. The mid terms will be a landslide.

    Welcome to the boards. You'll find the only people labelled as trolls around here really are trolls. Don't call people names and stick to the subject at hand and everyone is nice even if they disagree.

    wink2 enjoying this

    Reading conservative defense of fascism is a good way to start the day. Top it off with a perusal of the NYT and WP for a dose of reality. Republicans are jumping ship quicker than on the Titanic but this time no women and children first.

    Unconsciously we all have a standard by which we measure other men, and if we examine closely we find that this standard is a very simple one and is this: we admire them, we envy them, for great qualities which we ourselves lack. Hero worship consists in just that. Our heroes are the men who do things which we recognize with regret and sometimes with a secret shame that we cannot do. We find not much in ourselves to admire, we are always privately wanting to be like somebody else. If everybody was satisfied with himself there would be no heroes.

    I can only hope that before I die some person with personal integrity runs for the office of President. Someone who is not defended by "Clinton did it" or "Trump did it".

    I must have missed the stories claiming Trump has been involved in money laundering, drug running, suspicious deaths, and lying under oath about sex with interns. I don't read the NY Times or W Post, though.

For the most part I got a pass for having to do that, as I believe now the Drill Sgts understood I could have pressed for a medical deferment.

    Different mindset than Trump - I never even considered applying for a deferment. My father was a retired Air Force Colonel and I was going into the military. I ended up serving two tours in II Corps.

    Now I have many friends that successfully avoided the draft, some of whom I respected. But consciously avoid the draft is what they did. Like Trump.
    My problem was that in running or even walking down stairs too fast my back would feel like something had pulled out, leaving me in pain and barely able to walk. Not something I could have gotten away with at OCS. The docs thought that it was caused by one leg being shorter than the other but - almost 50 years later, I found out that the problem was my pelvis was higher on one side than the other and my spine came out at enough of an angle to make it structurally unstable and squash the parts of the disks on the inside of the curve. A rare sort of Scoliosis and inoperable - my orthopedist called it the sort of problem that gave back surgery a bad name. Luckily I'd passed on surgery years before, decided to live with it after hearing horror stories from a neurologist about his chronic pain patients. It's gotten worse over the years so now I can't stand up straight and need a cane to walk.

    Not true according to Snopes.com, which is definitely NOT a friend of Trump.

    Snopes - Donald Trump Draft Deferment

    1968:
    Trump received his fourth and final college deferment on 16 January 1968. After graduating from Wharton, he was reclassified 1-A on 9 July 1968. Trump underwent an Armed Forces physical examination (with a result listed only as “DISQ”) on 19 September 1968 and was reclassified 1-Y (qualified for service only in time of war or national emergency) on 15 October 1968.
    According to a statement from the Trump campaign, the 1-Y classification stemmed from Trump’s having bone spurs in both heels:
    While attending the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton School of Finance, Mr. Trump received a minor medical deferment for bone spurs on both heels of his feet. The medical deferment was expected to be short-term and he was therefore entered in the military draft lottery, where he received an extremely high number, 356 out of 365.
    1972:
    Despite the supposedly “short-term” nature of Trump’s disqualifying physical condition, on 17 February 1972 he was reclassified 4-F (not qualified for military service), presumably due to the abolishment of the 1-Y classification the previous year.

    FYI having played sports is no insurance against orthopedic problems and it can cause them. My daughter developed painful bone spurs after playing soccer on a traveling team during all of high school. Had to have an operation on one foot after the standard rest, heat and exercises failed.

    There's a big difference between avoiding the draft by following the rules like Trump (and I, reluctantly) did and deliberately dodging it like Bill Clinton. As usual with the Clintons Bill skated around the edge of the law without quite breaking it.

    You might be a bit new to the internet, at least to the term "troll", a quick "up-to-speed primer for ya.

    In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, often for the troll's amusement.
    Forums: Forums are made for discussing topics with like-minded people, but every once in a while, a troll will come in and start spewing negative words all over the place. If forum moderators don't ban them, other members will often respond and before you know it, the thread gets thrown completely off topic and becomes nothing but one big pointless argument.
    This is where the advice to "not feed the trolls" points to.

    Why Do People Troll on the Internet?

    Every internet troll has a different backstory, and therefore different reasons for feeling the need to troll a community on the internet. They may feel depressed, attention-starved, angry, sad, jealous, narcissistic or some other emotion they may not be conscious of that's influencing their online behavior.
    What makes trolling so easy is that anyone can do it, and it can be done from a safe, isolated place as opposed to interacting with others in person. Trolls can hide behind their shiny computers, screen names and avatars when the go out trolling for trouble, and after they’re all done, they can carry on with their real lives without facing any real consequences. Trolling makes a lot of cowardly people feel stronger.

    There's a big difference between trolling and honestly disagreeing. The Trump problem is there's so much bay at the moon mouth foaming hatred nonsensical "facts" out there that otherwise sensible people get infected by it from reading what used to be the mainstream media. The draft deferment thing is an example.

    And Trump himself seems to be stoking some of it by not acting dignified, "presidential" or even keeping his damned Tweet shut.

    Snopes - Donald Trump Draft Deferment

    1968:
    Trump received his fourth and final college deferment on 16 January 1968. After graduating from Wharton, he was reclassified 1-A on 9 July 1968. Trump underwent an Armed Forces physical examination (with a result listed only as “DISQ”) on 19 September 1968 and was reclassified 1-Y (qualified for service only in time of war or national emergency) on 15 October 1968.
    According to a statement from the Trump campaign, the 1-Y classification stemmed from Trump’s having bone spurs in both heels:
    While attending the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton School of Finance, Mr. Trump received a minor medical deferment for bone spurs on both heels of his feet. The medical deferment was expected to be short-term and he was therefore entered in the military draft lottery, where he received an extremely high number, 356 out of 365.
    1972:
    Despite the supposedly “short-term” nature of Trump’s disqualifying physical condition, on 17 February 1972 he was reclassified 4-F (not qualified for military service), presumably due to the abolishment of the 1-Y classification the previous year.

    FYI having played sports is no insurance against orthopedic problems and it can cause them. My daughter developed painful bone spurs after playing soccer on a traveling team during all of high school. Had to have an operation on one foot after the standard rest, heat and exercises failed.

    There's a big difference between avoiding the draft by following the rules like Trump (and I, reluctantly) did and deliberately dodging it like Bill Clinton. As usual with the Clintons Bill skated around the edge of the law without quite breaking it.
    What did I write that is not true jjk? I used quotes from Trump during the campaign for my source. He showed up at induction with a letter from a Dr. This was not an ailment "discovered" by induction Drs as Clyde had postulated.

    "Fascism", a meaningless word used by people who, clearly, don't know what it means - like bill.

    If "fascism" is, in fact, being practiced by the Trump Admin., please cite one verifiable example.

    Excellent Point. I would enjoy hearing one example of Fascism from the WAPO reading crowd. However I expect we will here nothing but the sounds of crickets.

    What does it matter if Trump had a letter from his doctor or not? He still would have been examined by military doctors. I'm sure plenty of people showed up with fake letters and were caught. Trump was not. He was well within the law. There was no draft dodging.

    Now we have some amateur psychologist's opinion of trolling.

    "Forums are made for discussing topics with like-minded people..."

    I don't think so. This thread has nothing to do with guns, gun ownership, gun collecting etc. It is all about politics. I did not start this thread and in fact I was late at reading it. I would never start this kind of thing. I could have ignored it, but as long as I am a member of this group and still have the freedom to disagree, I will. When anyone posts offensive lies and political b.s. I have the right of rebuttal. If moderators had any backbone they would not allow this kind of b.s. thread to begin with. Keep it on guns, shooting, hunting, law, collecting, etc. I could care less about opinion, especially opinions not backed up by references to law, journals, and legitimate sources of information. Opinions are like aholes, everyone has one. Of course, this is one of many threads which are helpful to me as a collector, owner, CDW license holder and I appreciate the many experts who contribute their knowledge to this forum.

    I must admit I am disappointed by some of the opinions that I have read on this thread. I did not realize how radical / reactionary some gun enthusiasts are. I guess I should have known from past experience. Don't you realize that you are responsible for at least some of the bad publicity given to gun owners? Still I believe that most gun owners are rational sensible people who live a normal everyday life. So sad.

    I am a retired psychologist.

    Billpc, these political discussions are not allowed on the many individual gun collecting forums that make up Gunboards. If you confined yourself to those forums (not saying you should) you would not be burdened by opinions on the current state of affairs.

    One thing I know is Billcpc is not very good at predicting. ObamaCare will soon be dead. Unlike his prediction that it would be around forever. Still waiting to hear what Fascist Thing Trump did.

    The good start to your day, not going the way you thought, bill?

    Let's be real, you got called out, can't handle the responses, and have no way to save face, other than to call the moderators like a child calls his mother, to do "something." And you call others reactionary!!!

    I have to be honest, given your posts and that this is the internet, where anyone can make unverifiable claims, I'm doubting you being a psychologist, retired or otherwise.

    I believe he previously was a school teacher. My guess is school teacher who offered advice to students and tried to indoctrinate them with Liberalism. So that made him a guidance counselor. Then what the heck it's the internet why not call that being a psychologist.
