wow that really amazes me to hear that and i dont think that all is true to a certain extent. now what really qualifies is to postpone the meeting into a day that we can all agree to. and have it so one day the whole entire world will be able tp just stop and enjoy what all is going for them and see what this place is really all about that God had given us and just indore the great things that come out of life everyday one day just stop and or maybe just slow down. and if everyone helped one person and not the regular people they collaborate with everyday,someone different the world could be a better place. and stop feuding with thier enemies and realize what is really going on..........wouldnt that be soomething

Does any body really think JFK was anything other than a dope using, womanizer with Nazi and Mafia connections?

By what measure?
Because his family made thier fortune running booze during the proabition days.
Because he committed adultry and Bush didn't?
Because he did nothing to end segregation, it took Johnson to sign that and it took Bush to make'm get off thier butts and get a job if they want services?
Because he died? Getting your head blowed off doesn't do that.
Because he screwed up the Bay of Pigs?
Because other than that he did the same thing Bush done.
He lowered Taxes which brought in more markets and more revenue.
He stood up to Castro when it wasn't popular and stopped trade with cuba. even though everybody wanted thier latin retreat, and cuban cigars.
He listened to weak knee'ed congress man and allowed the USSR to put nukes on cuba because of faulty intelegence information.Then almost started a nucular war to get them removed.
He wasn't better than Bush.
Republican all the way

AND he along with other Kennedy clan are behind the blunders in our democratic society that face us today. Oh BTW, Clinton is related to him. HMM!

Bush may not have been popular, but name one president that would be popular when a country is in a war. The longer it lasts, the lower the popularity. Anyway, the current administration will be the biggest asset for the next Republican candidate.

I'm glad he had a low rating!
That means he had something that no demorat will ever have.
The balls to do whats right reguardless what you bleeding hearts said.
I'm glad he has kicked as- of the hussain's of the world.
I glad he got after the obama's of this world.
I'm glad he got after the taliban.
I'm glad he didn't take any sh-t off of france,germany,or the UN.
Thank God he wasn't liked by liberials!
That meant he was doing the job for the right reasons.

I am afraid that BUSH actually for got about the taliban and alQuida. After all he left Afghanistan without finishing up the ob and left 2 wars he got into to another president to finish up for what he started. So why did he not finish up the job in Afghanistan when they were on the run and beaten, instead of lettting the enemy make a comeback. Guess he kind of forgot also to capture be Ladin to. as he said he would.

Some bleeding heart liberial can't deal with facts.
They edited out my response to just thinking.
No cuss words, no profane name calling, just direct fact based commentary on how I see it.
It was there last night after I posted it and now it's not.

Mack Wallace, a buddy of LBJ did the shooting from the sixth floor. Lucian Sarti, a mafia hitman did the shooting from behind the fence near the grassy nole. Carlos Marcello, a mafia godfather from New Orleans was behind it all. Lee Oswald took all the blame to throw the public off as dim-witted as they are. Many other people were involved but when Ruby shot Oswald it was case closed.
