John F Kennedy was assassinated in Dealy Plaza, Dallas TX.
I was in third grade, all we knew was we had comeback in from lunch and the teachers came in crying and sent us home. I went to go collect my sister Mrs Soto her first grade teacher had been mine, when I went to pick her up she told me to come back when school was over. When got home mom didn't know what was going on, we are weird people and don't normally have a radio on during the day. After that all I remember was a bunch of adults on our BW TV showing the the same grainy movie over and over.
Mom immediately said LBJ had done it because he had said when asked if he would be Vice President "That he would be second banana to no one"!
 
Yup.
Said he was going to shatter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the wind. Said he was going to take money printing away from the privately owned federal reserve and delegate that duty to Congress, like in the constitution.
Then he gets killed by a crazy guy with a magic bullet, who gets killed by another crazy guy who won't talk.
Then when the people aren't buying this story the CIA comes up with the term "conspiracy theory"

then they take the silver out of coinage the next year


RIP President Kennedy, you tried to take on the bankers :usa::usa::usa:

I was in 6th grade. We came back into the classroom after lunch and our really tough teacher looked stricken and barely holding it together. I few minutes later the announcing system came on and the school principle announced that the president had died. The teacher lost it. We were all sent home.

Kennedy getting shot was a blessing. Lee Harvey Oswald delayed the hell were currently living in 40+ years.
 
3rd grade also . .. . walking home from school in Ohio. Mom picked us up and yeah she was in tears. And Will, he had the balls and integrity to admit to the nation that Bay of Pigs was his fault and responsibility. Same balls that urinated on Krushev and his attempt to arm cuba with ICBMS by stationing US Navy at sea around the island. Oddly, like Trump. Magic bullet my ass. Cheesus K Rhist. I have similar bullets, hunting ones, not military, the Hornady 6.5mm 160g. It will blow through almost any flesh at the modest velocities of the cartridges it was designed for. The turn of the century metric first gen smokeless powders and split bridge Manlichers or small ring Mausers. His Magic bullet was the 6.5 .268 cal FMJ from a Carcano Mil Surp and yeah it has a sectional density like a fucking javelin and will easily pierce three bodies all day long every day.
 
I was 7 at the time. I remember neighbors crying when news broke that it happened.

I also remember watching the funeral procession and Kennedy Jr. saluting his dad's coffin....

Everyone I've ever met from pirate was about the complete opposite of what I had pictured

I don't think I've ever met anyone from here. :homer:

I was within miles of 45acp though on our roadtrip. Kind of bummed I wasn't able to meet him. :laughing:
 
But there was another brother that lived a long time, I wonder what the difference was

Teddy was a drunk who other than maybe being guilty of neglegent manslaughter in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne spent most of his time cheating on his wife!
I say maybe because I read an analysis of the accident where the author concluded that she was passed out in the back seat and Teddy wasn't even aware she was there

There is a simpler hypothesis current on the island for the occurrence at Dyke Bridge, one that may or may not be true, but at least puts Kennedy in a somewhat kinder light. According to blood tests, Mary Jo had had two or three cocktails. She may have had more, or she may in her inexperience simply have been more affected by a few. In any case, this hypothesis would have had her feeling slightly dizzy, leave the stale air in the crowded room of the cottage to take a nap in the back of the Oldsmobile. At some time after midnight, Kennedy decided to take Rosemary Keough to the beach. When they left they did not notice Mary Jo in the back seat, although Deputy Sheriff Look observed her at the Dyke Road turnoff. Once the car flipped over at the bridge, Kennedy and Rosemary Keough — minus her purse — got to the surface, to the shore, and back to the Lawrence cottage. With only their car wrecked they would have felt no need or wish to knock on doors along the way. When they did arrive at about 1:30, the first question they were asked was: Where is Mary Jo? Then it was that the party dimmed. Still hopeful that she too might have found her way to the shore, Kennedy and Gargan and Markham headed for the bridge, searched both banks, but could find no sign of her. They may or may not have dived in at the spot where the car sank. Since they said so, let us assume they did. Then they drove Kennedy to the ferry landing in the Valiant and watched him swim across the channel. Possibly they later borrowed one of the many skiffs tied up at the dock and rowed across themselves. Their chief impulse at this point would have been to protect the Kennedy name. It was after the conference in the ferry shed, after whatever telephone calls may have been made there, that Ted Kennedy decided there was no alternative left but to go to the police.
 
:rolleyes:

Has non lemming in sig, rolls eyes at a more plausible scenario than the official one along with things he actually tried doing.

Think for yourself as long as it's on the 3x5 index card of allowable opinion.
 
Because Teddy was a fucking useful idiot that should have be been hung by the neck until dead for treason.

True his letter to the Russians in 1983 asking them to help defeat Reagen shows who really wanted Russian help

Ted Kennedy Sent a Secret Letter to the Soviets in 1983-Truth!

Government, Military, Politics / By Rich Buhler & Staff / March 13, 2015
Ted Kennedy Sent a Secret Letter to the Soviets in 1983 –Truth!

Summary of eRumor:

Ted Kennedy asked leaders of the Soviet Union to help the Democrats defeat President Reagan in the 1984 presidential election in a secret letter that he sent in 1983.

The Truth:

This eRumor is true.
Sen. Ted Kennedy wrote the letter to Soviet General Secretary Yuri Andropov in 1983. In the letter, Kennedy reportedly talked about his concerns with U.S.-Soviet relations, and about President Reagan’s plan to deploy middle range nuclear weapons to Western Europe.
Ted Kennedy’s original letter to Soviet leaders hasn’t turned up. But Kennedy’s letter was discussed in a memo from KGB Head Viktor Chebrikov to Yuri Andropov that turned up in 1992. According to the memo:
“The only real threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations. These issues, according to the senator, will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign. The movement advocating a freeze on nuclear arsenals of both countries continues to gain strength in the United States. The movement is also willing to accept preparations, particularly from Kennedy, for its continued growth. In political and influential circles of the country, including within Congress, the resistance to growing military expenditures is gaining strength.
“However, according to Kennedy, the opposition to Reagan is still very weak. Reagan’s adversaries are divided and the presentations they make are not fully effective. Meanwhile, Reagan has the capabilities to effectively counter any propaganda.”​


The memo goes on to discuss Ted Kennedy’s request for Yuri Andropov to invite him to Moscow for a meeting. Kennedy reportedly said that he could provide “explanations regarding problems of nuclear disarmament so they may be better prepared and more convincing during appearances in the U.S.A.” Kennedy said he had similar meetings planned with British and French leaders.
Ted Kennedy also requested that Yuri Andropov do a number of interviews on American television, according to the memo:
“A direct appeal by the General Secretary to the American people will, without a doubt, attract a great deal of attention and interest in the country. The senator is convinced this would receive the maximum resonance in so far as television is the most effective method of mass media and information.”​


Kennedy also reportedly said he was “very impressed” with the Soviet’s commitment to “heal international affairs, and improve mutual understandings between people.”
Historian Paul Kengor wrote about the memo in his book, “The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism.” Kengor explained in a 2008 interview how the document had been discovered:
“It comes from the Central Committee archives of the former USSR. Once Boris Yeltsin took over Russia in 1991, he immediately began opening the Soviet archives, which led to a rush on the archives by Western researchers. One of them, Tim Sebastian of the London Times and BBC, found the Kennedy document and reported it in the February 2, 1992 edition of the Times, in an article titled, ‘Teddy, the KGB and the top secret file.’
“But this electrifying revelation stopped there; it went no further. Never made it across the Atlantic. Not a single American news organization, from what I can tell, picked up the story. Apparently, it just wasn’t interesting enough, nor newsworthy.​


Reports of the Ted Kennedy-KGB memo went viral after a group of Republican senators sent an open letter to leaders of Iran about ongoing nuclear negotiations. This sparked a debate about senators undermining presidents and brought new attention to the Kennedy memo.

And people wonder why I don't trust the Democraps nothing is to far fetched for them to try
