    The photos in the composite below should suffice. Hopefully, the "obvious" won't escape you here....

    Oh heck, you CTers wouldn't be satisfied if you were hung with a brand-new rope, would ya? But anyhow, Cory, I can tell that you've had your tongue firmly rooted in your right cheek during your recent "Hard & Stiff" posts in the last couple of days, so I'll just assume you're giving Lance, Cliff, and me "the business" in this thread. (And there's probably some kind of "homo-erotic" crossover humor being aimed at Varnell here too, via the Hard/Stiff/Soft references. Please try and tone it down, though. My delicate sister might be looking in.) 😈

    He was 11-5 in '75. And he didn't earn anywhere near $40K. He only made $16,000 that year. And $19,000 in '76 (his last ML season).* Times (and sports salaries) certainly have changed, huh? * Stats and wages courtesy of Baseball Almanac.

    Why not go straight to the horse's mouth? Lee Oswald, himself, can give us a pretty good glimpse into his thoughts about Soviet Russia and Marxism by reading his "Historic Diary" (Commission Exhibit No. 24). Excerpt from Page 1: "I must leave country tonight at 8:00 P.M. as visa expires. I am shocked!! My dreams! I retire to my room. I have $100 left. I have waited for 2 years to be accepted. My fondest dreams are shattered because of a petty official." -- Lee Harvey Oswald; October 21, 1959 So, Cory, what do you think Oswald meant when he said in his diary that his "fondest dreams" had been "shattered" shortly after he arrived in Russia in October of 1959?

    That's another red herring that CTers like to use. But it's been proven that Carcano bullets can (and WILL) behave just like the two bullets behaved on 11/22/63. If the bullet is slowed down enough (like the SBT bullet through JFK & Connally), it can come out looking very good. But if that same FMJ bullet strikes something very hard FIRST (like JFK's skull), it can (and will) break apart. The tests done by Dr. Alfred Olivier and (later) by Dr. John Lattimer prove this. "This bullet [a 6.5mm Mannlicher-Carcano missile like CE399] can penetrate four feet of solid wood or three pine telephone poles side by side and come out looking completely undeformed. On the other hand, if it is fired into the thick bone of the back of a human skull, the jacket and core of the bullet will separate, releasing a myriad of additional fragments of many different sizes." -- John K. Lattimer; Page 277 of "Kennedy And Lincoln" (1980) [Illustration from the book below.]

    A little bit of [Off Topic] baseball chatter (if the forum would be so kind as to indulge me, and Lance).... That would have been this game, played on July 31, 1954, at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. And Eddie Mathews added two homers of his own in that same game. Well, I'll be darned! That's an interesting "brush with history". Small correction, though, Lance --- Carlton Fisk's famous game-winning foul-pole homer was in the 1975 World Series (not '76). My Reds won the Series in both of those years, though. I remember those two seasons well. Same here. But my one minute of baseball video from 1973 hasn't yet attracted a single scout. I'm beginning to wonder if it's part of a widespread conspiracy plot to keep me out of the big leagues forever. (Maybe I should ask John Armstrong about that.)

    Of course not. Why are you suggesting such a silly thing? When did I ever even hint at such a ridiculous belief? Please show me.

    No, the bullet entered the UPPER part of JFK's head, just exactly as this autopsy photo proves.... Wanna look at a picture?.... http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-lLWqbNL8Zgo/UYraEfUOHfI/AAAAAAAAuis/RtjG5B8TugM/s1600/JFK_Autopsy_Photo_BOH.jpg

    Just to watch you squeal "It's a conspiracy!", I imagine. What else could be the reason?
  12. David Von Pein

    I Was a Teenage JFK Conspiracy Freak

    Yes, of course that's what the WC was suggesting. I've suggested it in the past as well --- although I still favor the first [missed] shot striking the Main Street curb and Tague. The Commission, however, wasn't suggesting that the WHOLE head-shot bullet went on to possibly strike Tague. Merely a fragment of that bullet. (And remember that more than half of that bullet was never recovered.)

    Francois, Jim DiEugenio doesn't think that just three shots were fired. There's no way he believes that. He, like all CTers, thinks that at least 4 shots were fired (probably even five or six, or maybe more). He was merely attempting (lamely) to explain what he thinks the Warren Commission was boxed into accepting in 1964, based on James Tague's testimony --- as if Tague's testimony was the BE-ALL & END-ALL of the whole case, which it is not, of course, because many witnesses were wrong on some things regarding the "timeline" of the shooting. But Jim likes Tague's statements about the timeline, therefore (per Jimmy) Tague CANNOT BE MISTAKEN about ANYTHING. But, as usual, Jim has once again totally ignored Page 117 of the Warren Report, in which the WC specifically says this about James T. Tague.... "Since he did not observe any of the shots striking the President, Tague's testimony that the second shot, rather than the third, caused the scratch on his cheek, does not assist in limiting the possibilities. The wide range of possibilities and the existence of conflicting testimony, when coupled with the impossibility of scientific verification, precludes a conclusive finding by the Commission as to which shot missed." I wonder how many more things Mr. DiEugenio can ignore (or mangle) when it comes to page number 117 of the Warren Commission's Final Report? Let's just wait and see.

    And YOU cannot possibly be serious when you try to defend Oswald for still another crime he committed in 1963---the Walker shooting. Can you, Jim? Yes, amazingly, you are indeed serious, despite Warren Commission Exhibit No. 1---in Oswald's own [Russian] handwriting---staring you in the face (below). Tell me, Jimmy, who was it who faked all that Russian writing that we find in CE1? Any idea?.... https://history-matters.com/archive/jfk/wc/wcvols/wh16/html/WH_Vol16_0013a.htm Or, alternatively, if you actually think that CE1 HASN'T been "faked" (gasp! that'd be incredible, wouldn't it?!), then what do you think Oswald was referring to when he said all those things he said in that note to Marina---such as "If I am alive and taken prisoner", etc.? Are those the kind of things that an INNOCENT person would write to his wife?

    Interjections are needed in many cases. Such as when the quoted word is "he". After many pages have gone by, how is anyone supposed to know who "he" is. Hence, it's necessary to add the person's name [in brackets, of course] for clarification. An interjection [within brackets] does not equate at all to "altering" somebody's quote. You just like to gripe is all.
  17. David Von Pein

    I Was a Teenage JFK Conspiracy Freak

    I did no "altering" at all. I added my own comments and clarifications within brackets --- [ ] --- which is the proper way to do it within a verbatim quote. (Jim likes to stomp his feet and whine, doesn't he? Geesh.)

    Dammit, Lance! You're a golfer. I was hoping you were a baseball player (like I used to be as a youth). If you and I had that "baseball connection" too, then more people could start claiming that "Lance is really DVP in disguise". That's a fun "alias" game that the conspiracy theorists like to play quite often. (Did you ever play first base, Lance?)

    That's funny. I've always said that it was the CTers, not LNers, who do that very thing---isolate. http://jfk-archives.blogspot.com/2010/07/isolating-evidence.html

    And Jim never gives himself (or another CTer) "the last word" in the articles on his K&K website, right Jim? Pot meets Kettle ....... yet again.

    In a (lone) nutshell, my answer would be.... I do it mainly in order to add various discussions to my "JFK Archives" and "Assorted JFK Assassination Arguments" websites (blogs).

    Dead wrong (as per usual).

    Incredible! A WC investigation that was probably the most thorough and detailed in the history of murder investigations is considered to be "Not much" by the Jim DiEugenios of the world. Un-freaking-believable! --------------------------------------- "In my opinion, the Warren Commission's investigation has to be considered the most comprehensive investigation of a crime in history. .... Very few people are more critical than I. And I expect incompetence wherever I turn, always pleasantly surprised to find its absence. Competence, of course, is all relative, and I find the Warren Commission operated at an appreciably higher level of competence than any investigative body I know of. It is my firm belief that anyone who feels the Warren Commission did not do a good job investigating the murder of Kennedy has never been a part of a murder investigation." -- Vincent Bugliosi
