    No. Cheney did not. But like him, you revise history. (Sec of defense does not count)

    When Cheney became eligible for the draft, during the Vietnam War, he applied for and received five draft deferments.[21][22] In 1989, The Washington Post writer George C. Wilson interviewed Cheney as the next Secretary of Defense; when asked about his deferments, Cheney reportedly said, "I had other priorities in the '60s than military service".[23] Cheney testified during his confirmation hearings in 1989 that he received deferments to finish a college career that lasted six years rather than four, owing to sub-par academic performance and the need to work to pay for his education. Initially, he was not called up because the Selective Service System was only taking older men. When he became eligible for the draft, he applied for four deferments in sequence. He applied for his fifth exemption on January 19, 1966, when his wife was about 10 weeks pregnant. He was granted 3-A status, the "hardship" exemption, which excluded men with children or dependent parents. In January 1967, Cheney turned 26 and was no longer eligible for the draft.

    and only the blind think the military is the only way to serve the country. I will leave it at that

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Wasn't -- who's the guy with the hairpiece -- .. Donald Trump. Wasn't Donald Trump considered a viable candidate? And he is a big joke, too.

    Fox news talked him up, but I can't believe anyone seriously though he had any potential to win.

    Well Donald did. He might be the only one, though.

    Megalomaniacs rarely believe they can be defeated.

    probably best you do just that, and perhaps drop the Kerry crap along with the 'left' should embrace all draft dodgers and deferment users.

    I really don't need you telling me what I need to do. You weren't even accurate in your claims as to what I suggested.

    I am far more accurate in what you 'suggested' than you about Kerry. And it isn't that many 'conservatives' couldn't seem to hear the Call of Duty coming from any place but an X-box, no Sir, it is they try and smear liberals for the same poor hearing...
