I voted incorrectly, I don't think he really did have bone spurs and in light of recent events, that seems to be true. There is no paper trail to prove it.

I couldn't answer the poll because you added "based on my gut" and I'm a nurse and don't base my opinion on gut, I prefer to base it on experience. Heel bone spurs just don't go away by themselves so what kind of treatment did Trump undergo for bone spurs, that's what I'd be interested in.

He did it to get out of the draft, who's bull****ting who.

Never believed it even when I was riding on his train. He used up his academic deferments so daddy found somebody to lie.

Apparently, the podiatrist that performed Donnie's foot examination had his medical-practice office in a building owned by daddy Fred Trump.

A bit of quid-pro-quo is likely. Diagnose bone spurs and..... no rent increases. Deal!

this

and given how pathetic the USA prosecuted the war in Vietnam, I really don't blame those who tried to avoid it-especially after it was obvious that the whole war was a joke in the way it was waged.

I had a bone spur in my left heel once.
It went away after about a month or so.
I did not treat it in any way.
Just hobbled around and tried to keep weight off it.
then one day POOF!...no more bone spur.
It sure as hell hurt while it was there though.
Like a miniature dagger stabbing my foot.

The rich only go to war if they need to for some reason.

Should be a category for WHO CARES. Clinton got out of the draft, Bush II joined the air force reserves not to different. Many kids looked for a way out of that hellhole,fought for who knows what. Certainly not defending America.

Mine did. It went away all by itself after about a month.

He went to fight wars
for his country and his king
of his honour and his glory
the people would sing

written by GL at age 12. he played 5 guitar/bass tracks on the studio version. For his first few years, no one had a voice like him. Compare that song to John Fogerty's song allegedly about Al Gore Jr called "Fortunate Son"

GL was a genius.

I also did not know John meant Al Gore Jr. in that song.
Good to know.....and so true.

I dont know; I didn't examine him, and I am not qualified to do so.
