In reality there were two John F Kennedys.

There was the real life man who served as our President for about 1050 days, before he was assassinated, and then there was the mythical man who was created by the media after the real JFK was shot in Dallas.

The mythical Kennedy is larger than life man that is presented as one of our greatest Presidents. He was a man that most everyone loved, who presided over a mythical place called Camelot. The truth is a little bit different.

The reality is that JFK was in political trouble in November of 1963 and was in Dallas on a fence mending trip, to shore up support in the south, prior to the next election, when he was shot.

He was a man who did some things right and a man who also made some mistakes. I would rate him as an average president, but you'll not hear that today because he was assassinated and was made into a martyr.

It is not at all certain that JFK would have been able to win a second term had he lived.

It has been 50 years since that day in Nov. 1963, in Dallas, when he was killed. I was in my early twenties at the time, serving in the military, and I remember him and his presidency well.

In my opinion we are no closer to knowing the truth about who killed him and why they did it today than we were 6 months after it happened. I really do not expect to ever know the truth.

What I have read leads me to believe that the majority of Americans don't believe the conclusions of the Warren Commission Report were correct.

I really am surprised that no one other than me saw fit to comment on this topic the 50th anniversary of JFKs death.

I appreciate what you wrote. It's great to hear about these events from people who were around during them.

And what about "Land Between The Lakes???

Kenedy's Administration forced All land owners. to sell to the FED or get evicted. Many families around the surrounding counties still hate the Kenedy's for what they did to establish this park.

Many small townd were demolished and farmsteads were abandoned.

Reagan NEVER would have done such a thing.

Cleary Oswald did it, alone, just like they said. 9/11 was also done by him.

I have seen every conspiracy known to man about this president.

I have seen every conspiracy about 9/11.

While not yet born, I saw the Zegruder (however you spell it) a thousand times.

I also watched the 9/11 747 plane crashes into the WTC towers.
I've seen nothing in either event to convince me otherwise.

People always ask me, "Why did the south tower collapse first."

My reply is always,"The South Tower was struck Much lower than the North Tower."

Secondly,"Steel doesn't melt at that temperature." My answer is,"The South Tower was struck Much Lower Than The North Tower."

"How can steel melt at that temperatue?"

Steel does not have to melt to loose load bearing strength. Also, steel looses a significant load bearing strength at a much lower temperature than you might think. Just go to a Black-Smith's shop and observe.

Jet-A Kerosene burns for a long time and at about 1400 ferinheit. This is MORE than enough time to really weaken the core, trusses and pre-fab steel skeleton
of the WTC towers in order to fail and colapse.

Don't bother me with those(supposed) videos showing an explosion. I saw the moment that the south tower collapsed.

Now; Let's get to how those Hijackers got on those planes. They could (very well) had help boarding those flights.

THAT'S THE REAL QUESTION.

Also, Oswald probably did get lucky,(a blind sqrirel finds a nut now and then) when you consider his vantage point from that building on the 6'th story."

9/11 Questions:

How come the hole in the Pentagon is much smaller than the size of a 747 jet?

How come the 3rd building fell?

Wasn't Operation Mongoose a CIA plan designated to attack Miami, and pretend it was Cuban terrorism?

Why did W. Bush wait until over 300 days before allowing a 9/11 Commission to form?(A Commission for JFK was formed that same week... what's he got to hide?)

JFK Questions:

How come Kennedy's head goes back and the left?(A shot from behind would have threw Kennedy's body forward, not backwards. The shot would have came from the grassy knoll, there was no magic bullet, it came from the front right, and that's why John's head went back and to the left. That's simple physics 101. Then the Warren Commission, just like the 9/11 Commission, merely consolidated the official myth, and then case closed, go back to bed America, your government is in control.)

Kennedy was wearing a back brace (due to Addison's Desease Meds.) This prevented ANY foward movement.

Secondly: Even a blind squirel finds a nut. Oswald's MARINE shooting score would have qualified him for the MARINE Sharp-Shooter division,(Despite what you have heard.)

Third: The French Carc-inau rifle AND bullets have unusual traits. The Carc-inau rifle is the most accurate of all rifles (including the 30.06 AND the 30.30 hunting rifles.

Also the Carc-inau was the ONLY ONE to have a thick cyndrical bullet that can penetrate 36 inches of bullistics pine boards.(Only a 44 Mag "Full Load") can penetrate deaper.

Fourth: President Andrew Jackson won a duel in the late 1700's. Only about 30 seconds later, Jackson felt a wet dripping from his left middle finger. He had been shot less than One inch from his heart and didn't even know it. Point being, One can be shot and Not know it until :30 seconds to two seconds later. I.E. Governor Connely.

Maybe not but Reagan's "freedom fighters" went across Central America committing genocidal atrocities. The u.s. was even convicted in a world court

I have read that professional snipers have been unable to duplicate oswalds shot with the same type of gun. It's extremely interesting

I always wondered why he didn't get any flack on his affair with Marlilyn Monroe. I was young though maybe he did I just didn't hear about it. One time I took a tour at Mt. Vernon and a older lady tour guide talked about George Washington's mistresses. The next time I went they didn't mention it at all. He had the backside of his house added on with no connecting door. She said he kept his mistresses there. Also he didn't cut down a cherry tree that was something said to help his campaign. That came from a Readers Digest book. When all of that came out about Thomas Jefferson I kept waiting to hear something but never did. Guess unless someone comes forward we will never know.

No way. Back and to the left... a back brace wouldn't stop the velocity of a speeding bullet moving you in the direction of that said speeding bullet. No magic is needed. Bullets go in a straight line, and they pack a wallop.

If what you're saying was true, it would be like getting hit by a car, and instead of being pushed forward, you were pushed in the direction of the car... it makes no sense. It's important for media and government to pretend this unsolved mysteries are solved, for the people's peace of mind.

Sorry, I was agreeing with you, just wrote the direction wrong. Unless his back brace was made different from the ones I've seen I don't believe the theory that the brace prevented it. In other words a back barace only supports the back not the neck.

Oh okay... I do not know what happened on 9/11 or to JFK, but I won't pretend like I do... there's major questions, and since collectively as a society, we haven't figured out what happened during the two biggest historical events, and it was videotaped, then we can't really say for sure what else, did or did not happen, throughout history, since most historical information relies on less evidence than videotape.
