A big piece of the United State's spirit, togetherness, and unified drive died with that great man that day, and we've never really quite recovered from it. Such a monumental loss.

I took the time out from my lesson plans today and talked to each class about JFK and what his death meant to the nation, and especially to those of us in the Dallas Fort Worth area . . . I talked about who Kennedy was, and why so many loved him - and why so many hated him as well.  We listened to a portion of his First Inaugural Address.  Then we took the time to review a little bit of the bizarre life of Lee Harvey Oswald as well.  It was a teachable moment, overall.

Something I've always wanted to know and you're the best person to ask: what on earth is this all about?



How can someone accuse the President of treason?

Wow, Trevor, you don't understand American politics! Every President's political enemies accuse him of treason and want him to be impeached.





In America, we think when a politician pursues policies we personally disagree with, it is treason. Isn't that the way it works in other countries?

I wish that American politics would clean house the old fashioned way. As they say in the computer tech industry: Garbage In, Garbage Out!  Cheers

Political hyperbole has always been the order of the day in America, going back to Jefferson vs. Adams . . .
when Jefferson was branded as an atheist, a Jacobin, and a shameless libertine who would burn the Constitution on a French altar to the Goddess Reason, and Adams was vilified as a corrupt monarchist who wanted to marry his sons to the daughters of George III and create an American royal family!!!!

The pamphlets in Dallas were created by the local chapter of the John Birch Society, I believe - a fanatical anti-Communist bunch that flourished in the 1960's.

The fact that people couldn't accept an unassuming outwardly ordinary guy could kill the President and change the coarse of history shows how devastating the event was.There had to be some kind of horrible reason for it. But no, it was just some douchebag that wanted make his mark.

I used to be a hard core conspiracy theorist, but after really looking things over I am now 80% sure that Oswald did it himself.  One of the problems in looking into this event is that there were so many people who hated Kennedy that it gets to be like MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS - too many suspects!

Physics kinda kills the lone gunman theory though. I'm betting that the conspirators wish that they could take back that last head shot to the front of his head and that it hadn't been caught on film. Maybe then, people wouldn't still be talking about it 50 years later.

Since KENNEDY's murder was caught on film, all of the once hard-to-see footage is examined again and again.  56 seconds into this video, the last gruesome shot looks like it's from behind:
