No I don't mean Trump. I heard innumerable complaints that Trump avoided the draft. Yet I don't recall hearing anything about Joe Biden getting multiple deferments from serving his country due to asthma. Which somehow doesn't inhibit him from jogging and bicycle riding.

Since Trump is Bonespurs, shouldn't Biden be Wheezy?

One more thing that goes to show how partisan mainstream media is.


I have asthma btw.

The army is different. They reject everyone for mental and health issues. My husband wanted to join the Navy but they rejected him due to his learning disabilities. My youngest brother was rejected due to asthma issues. I used to get calls about it too until I mentioned i take medication, now I no longer qualified. The phone calls stopped. Biden got rejected because of asthma.

You cam avoid drafts for medical reasons. You basically need to have a perfect brain and body to be drafted. Only way to get in is have no medical records of them and no school records.

Yeah my brother is 6foot3 and has always been fit as an elite athlete. He got rejected from the Australian defense forces (ADF) because he had flat feet !

I have a cousin who was rejected from the airforce because his cornea was fractionally scratched from a crossbow accident.

bonespurs? well who knows

I've had chronic bone spurs in my foot. It's more debilitating than asthma.

And no matter what Trump had, be it asthma or flat feet, the lashout would have been the same. Am I saying Trump gets unfairly persecuted? Yes.

Considering It's Trump's Standard
Operating Procedure to Lie and Cheat;

Still Doing His Best to Overturn A Representative
Free Democracy By A Big Lie And SCAM; Hell Yes,

Chances Are the Daughters of the Doctor Who Suggested
The Report of Bone Spurs Was A FAKE THEN ARE CORRECT;

THAT'S ENOUGH to Garner Suggestions that Trump Was Likely A Draft

Dodger;

Without Regard
to the Seriousness
of Bone Spurs or Asthma
That WILL KEEP YOU OUT OF THE
ARMY WITH A DOCTOR'S REPORT;

Not likely We are Gonna
See X-Rays

of Whether
Or Not it is True;

Like Trump's Promise
to Release His Tax Returns, HAha...

Trump is a Despicable Liar and Cheater;

And Also Likely a Criminal Who Will Be Prosecuted
Next; For It's True What Falls Eventually Hits the Ground;

And Or Gets
Flushed
Down
The Toilet
If It Doesn't
Get Stuck in the Drain...

Meanwhile, 'The River' Continues

to Flow Without BS

In Other
Places
of Course
Where A Representative
Democracy Thrives For Real

FOR THE RIGHTS TO LIFE, LIBERTY,
AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS; Yes,

AND TO BE CLEAR THE UNITED STATES HAS F'ed
That Up In Less than Perfect Union Ways Along the Way

in Terms of my First Cousin Who Got Burned up in a Helicopter
In That Unwarranted War of Vietnam in 1968 With A Procession

Of Other Lies and Cheats For Other Unwarranted Wars Sponsored by
Those Who Sought Power, Material Gains, And Status More than the Frigging

Declaration
of Independence...

Dying For A Lie is Truly Sad...

Willing to Give Your Life For Freedom
of Your Fellow Citizens is Truly Noble and Altruistic...

It's Sad that my Cousin Was Lied to too; What Comes Around

Goes Around
Indeed in

Colors of
Trump All Around Again...

Several Hundred Thousand or More
Brown Folks Who Died Without Just Cause
in the Middle East Will Surely Relate This Through

Relatives too...

It is What is is

Brave, Free, And True on
Some Days And Not so Much on Others...

Indeed the Human Condition, it is what it is...

And Indeed, in Many Ways Trump is A Microcosm
Of What Our Country Has Become in Decades Past...

Indeed, The Truth
oF Lies Shall

Stare At

Us Directly in Our Face...

The Rights to Life, Liberty, and
the Pursuit of Happiness is A Grand
Declaration of Independence And It's
Not Easy to Make

it Happen For

Everyone; Particularly,

'Dogs' Used For Unwarranted Wars...

True, Some 'Dogs' Are Born With Silver Spoons...

Others Not So Much Who Tell the Truth And
Truly Wanna Do What's More Noble in Life...

People Like The Daughter of Another 'Devil'
Called 'Cheney' and McCain Both Heroes of Truth

in the Dark oF Lies

And Despicable
Acts That Harm
The Most Marginalized
Folks Among Us Used as 'Beasts of Burden'...

It's All Truly A Very Sad Story (The Human one)
that could use some healing all the way around FOR REAL.

I also have asthma.  Bicycling and jogging are things I must force myself to do to to keep my lungs in shape, not just my body.  Some days are easier than others.

When I am about to address a group, one thing I must do is take two or three 'hits' off my inhaler, or risk that chokey-gaggy feeling of an impending asthma attack while I am speaking.  This may be something that Mr. Biden must do, too.

When I found out that those "coughing jags" I had experienced since childhood were asthma attacks, I was a year away from the discharge of my military enlistment.  The C.O. offered to sign my medical discharge papers, but allowed me to refuse the offer on the grounds that I had already served honorably, and did not want to become another of those disabled veterans down at the V.A. clinic who somehow remain unemployed after service.

Apparently, the military does not want asthmatics to enlist, but if you have already served honorably, they might let you serve out your enlistment.  The C.O. did advise me that I might be barred from re-enlisting, however.

If I had it my way only honorably discharged veterans would be allowed to hold public office -OR- vote, but we can’t have everything.

Hmm, i Retired At A Rate (NF-4)
Equivalent to An (O-4) Major in
The Marines; i Suppose That Means

(Hmm, i Get Saluted Still When i Enter
The Navy Station Still to Leg Press up to 1520
Pounds at the Military Gym Through the Gate;

i Was Also Required to Have A Security Clearance
to Handle Sensitive Information/Documents Through

Military Channels Of Communication)

If Only Veterans Who Were Honorably

Discharged Were Able to Vote,

I'd Do This; God Yes, the 'Thing'

Is, i'd Be Honorable Enough Still

Now to Make Sure Folks Who Weren't
in the Military Were Able to Vote too.

Yeah Baby, i Was Just A Federal Civilian,
Yet i Worked Side-by-Side With A Captain
In A HeadQuarters Building At One of the
Largest Navy Installations in the Country;

This Much i Know About Those Who Honorably

Serve(d)/Bled Next to Folks of Different Ethnic Backgrounds,
So Called Colors, Sexual and Gender Orientations, And
Identities; They Would Never Suggest That Those They

Serve Should
Receive Any
Less Freedoms
As A United States Citizen than them.

And Anyone Who Serve(d) With Any Real
Truth And Honor With Integrity in the Military

Would/Will Be TOTALLY DISGUSTED BY TRUMP
AND HIS MINIONS WHO STILL PROP HIM UP

WITH HIS ACTIONS THAT STAND AGAINST
EVERYTHING THIS COUNTRY IS FOUNDED UPON.

It's True, There Are Still 'Real Men And Or Women' in this
Country Applicable to Those Who Live With Honor, Courage,

Integrity, And Truth.

The Cheney Lady
And McCain are
One of the Few Left
And Dead in the Republican Party
in the Leadership of What That's Come to Fall.

Anyway, Next Stop For me Today, The Military
Station Aboard, Where Those Who Serve(d) Their
Country With Honor, Courage, Integrity, And Truth

Have Always Given
Me the Upmost
Respect as A Human
Being, No Matter How Different
i Was/Am From the Crowd Aboard.

I don't trust anything that comes out of Biden's mouth and nor do I like the job he is currently doing. :x

I do not entirely trust any politician, especially those with law degrees.

:wink: . . . and those without.

Dissapointing, I was hoping to see some balls in the face of government sponsored abduction which literally brainwashes people to commit murder., not bone spurs and asthma.

I'm pretty sure if you show the draft board your balls you'll avoid service, just like the guys with bone spurs and asthma.
