    Trump is slowly digging his own grave. He is really starting to turn people off with his crap. First, it was the birther/anti birther nonsense. Add in his questionable financials and business dealings. Not to mention that 85% of his speeches are self congratulatory. He won't be around for long. More serious GOP candidates will start to emerge.

    Nah, let him spout for a while, and hurt the GOP some more. BTW, I note in the linked article in the OP that Trump said his not being drafted was due to his high draft number.

    Only problem is the numbered draft system wasn't implemented until 1970. I know, because I voluntarily enlisted (not drafted) in 1969, and found it ironic when my own number (based on your birthdate), was over 330, and the highest was 366. (Including Feb 29 for leap year births, though many histories erroneously say the numbers ran to 365).

    So I certainly never would have been drafted. It is true, however, that Donald Trump did get a very high number, even higher than mine, of 356, based on the first draft drawing on Dec 1, 1969 for induction year 1970, affecting men born 1944 to 1950. That range affected both Trump (born June 14, 1946) and me (1949). Here's the chart:

    http://www.sss.gov/LOTTER8.HTM

    So there's some window there until 1970 for which Trump should have been eligible for the draft without a high number in effect, the only other question I have being about his alleged medical deferment. That's where lots of rich sons in my generation got their deferments, as in previous wars.

    I might note my own father was 4-F in WWII (medically unfit) without question, being an amputee from childhood. He nevertheless sought a special exception, and served in the US Army from 1942 to 1946. So there are circumstances where you can serve if you really want to, even with a medical issue. I'd like to know what Trump's was, and why it took over 3 years to finally classify him with it. Ordinarily you are classified immediately at the time of your physical, unless you appeal it yourself.

    Trump, like Palin, Beck and soon to come Backman as well as Santorum have gone way out on far right limbs trying to get attention and making claims against Obama that any idiot can disprove with some simple Google searches. Trump right now is the dumber of the dumb. LOL !!

    Just like jealous children who try to tare down another of his peers to build himself up, the effort may work for a while but then comes crashing in on them and they end up making fools of themselves, thereby making their chosen enemy look better.

    All the above are easily seen through jokes in the Republican Party and reduce their hopes of regaining the white house, they seem desperate to 'out' far right each other in their efforts to claim the Baggers votes, Its all really quite laughable, but they sure make the US Politics look rediculous.

    Once the real scrutinizing begins, Donald Trump will be toast as far as politics go. I don't really think he is hurting the GOP -- he's making the rest of the field look relatively sane -- but I do think he is hurting himself here. I don't think he even wants all the scrutiny he will have to face.

    One loves the way the left only belive in freedom of speech, so long as it's them doing the slagging off. Funny how they never see their own hate, and the damage they have done. many wanted to blame the black, Hispanic, and the Mormons for Prop8 passing failing to see they too contributed to this all coming to pass, then they cry victims.icon_rolleyes.gif

    You may invite him to your country to become the next prime minister of Australia. That way you can be present when he tells that to dear Julia.

    However, YOUR FIRED does not = You're fired

    No need to, he belongs in America. Oh and yes Julia is on her way out, bring on the next election. That will be the end of the socialist communist coalition in Oz.
