  2. just to set the record straight.

    what is the accepted version of events that is taught in america about what happened here.

    is it widely accepted that the president was murdered by lee harvey oswald.

    what actually is in the history books?

    im just asking because everyone you speak to about this all seem to take the view that oswald was a complete patsy and jfk was killed by' others'.

  3. Case Closed.

    LBJ, illumianiti, Cubans, Russians, secret federal reserve assasins, Nixon, and the military and all the rest didn't do it. The Mob did. And Oswald was the lone shooter.
  4. "what is the accepted version of events that is taught in america about what happened here."

    (Drum roll) The accepted version of events that is taught in school would be the one that generates the greatest amount of political contributions from the teachers union.
  5. yep... a bad cartoon with a bitter yet stern animator proves it all.

    sorry, i must be sitting on my brain, do u guys agree
    now in "case closed"?
  7. Who cares?:D
  8. man


    probably a healthy approach ... but, seriously i think most
    more or less care. it is somehow at the core of our
    understanding of government and democracy. whether
    consciously or not, most people do care.
  9. I just received this e-mail. Pretty interesting. I didn't verify if all of it is true, but I thought people would enjoy it:

    History mystery

    Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
    John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946

    Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
    John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

    Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
    Both wives lost their children while living in the White House.

    Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
    Both Presidents were shot in the head .

    Now it gets really weird.

    Lincoln 's secretary was named Kennedy.
    Kennedy's Secretary was named Lincoln .

    Both were assassinated by Southerners.
    Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.

    Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln , was born in 1808.
    Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

    John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln , was born in 1839.
    Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.

    Both assassins were known by their three names.
    Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

    Now hang on to your seat.

    Lincoln was shot at the theater named 'Ford.'
    Kennedy was shot in a car called ' Lincoln ' made by 'Ford.'

    Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.
    Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater.

    Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

    And here's the kicker...

    A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe , Maryland
    A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.

    amazing. yet, if you look at the world with certain
    glasses, you will find what you expect. i guess that is
    the engine driving conspiracies. in this case i would think
    fooled by randomness would be the appropriate phrase.

    nevertheless ... quite entertaining.
