    Who Hated JFK in 1963?

    Hmm. Four shot's on the dictabelt breaking the sound barrier, but Blakey said he could only sell three. One to JFK's back to the right of the third thoracic vertebrate that went in only a inch and fell out on somebody else's stretcher. At least one to JFK's head. At least one hit Connally. One missed and a shard hit Tague. But first a small caliber entry wound in JFK's throat as Dr. Perry said that afternoon, below the sound barrier, the first shot multiple people thought was a firecracker. That's five. If there was a corresponding head shot, more than one hit Connally, or, another miss... Six.

    The Man with the Nixon Tattoo

    Excellent profile picture. Never realized he had such a big nose. Look's kind of like an Old Pinocchio. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/exclusive-text-messages-show-roger-stone-and-friend-discussing-wikileaks-plans/ar-BBPIm4E?li=BBnb7Kz
  3. W, I can't begin to try to approximate any potential answer by Jim. He's obviously studied the issue in greater detail than you, I, and the so called historians he mentions who've bothered to try to broach the subject. IMHO LBJ wanted to capitalize on both JFK's popularity and (sympathy regarding) his death to both ensure his re-election and his legacy and own popularity in turn. The civil right's act and great society would be recorded in history as having happened under "his" watch. BTW, I did not realize until reading the article JFK and RFK had done so much to try to right the situation in Prince Edward County. I was shocked reading about the school closing's rather than admit blacks in McLean's Democracy In Chains but did not know about their efforts to right the ship so to speak. Commendable efforts on their part.
  4. VI just came back and finished part four last night. The article is concise for the depth of the subject yet detailed. It is Very enlightening and yet disconcerting regarding both my own education and personal family history understanding. I had at least one great great grandfather that I feel sure owned slaves as not a plantation owner but successful farmer in Mississippi in the 1850s who lost 3 sons in the uncivil war. Another likely did as a east Texas settler in the 1840's and state congressman in the 1850's (served with Samuel maverick in 1852). Yet another did not, served in the uncivil war and spoke of wasting four years of his life after getting wound twice. Another faced with a forced choice of joining one side to the other in Tennessee headed north. Apprehended by confederates he died of starvation as a prisoner on Belle Island in Richmond Virginia. It's now a state park, no mention of the prison on the website. http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/belle-isle#general_information I wasn't raised to hate or overtly discriminate, discrimination was subtle. I've printed parts 1 & 2 to review with a highlighter and will do so with parts 3 & 4 tomorrow. I hope to discuss it with my old friend Bob. He told me of going to the side window of a restaurant in Louisiana in the late 50's - early 60's to pick up his order, he couldn't go inside because he's (still is) Black.
  5. Not to detract from topic or the relevance of the fire(s), a subject I know personally about, but. My bladder's never been worth more than 300-350 miles without a stop. Less these days. Maybe in my 20's with them little white trucker pills. I admire your stamina.

    Chris, I'm certainly no physicist but you make more sense than John. He can... https://www.bing.com/search?q=areosmith+dream+on&form=PRUSEN&mkt=en-us&httpsmsn=1&refig=2b64eb40025d4d4ea8ab9e414fb73c4e&sp=-1&pq=areosmith+dream+on&sc=8-18&qs=n&sk=&cvid=2b64eb40025d4d4ea8ab9e414fb73c4e

    Beto's Bobby Vibe

    Well he was born in 1972, four years after RFK died and named Robert Francis. Catholic. Beto's short for Roberto in Spanish. It's a longshot but he is more inspiring in a loss by 2 + % than just about anybody in the Democratic party. He did have some coat tails in Texas. Tarrant County's (Fort Worth) been red on statewide offices for many many years, home to multiple republican conventions. Last year the democrats held there's there. Some guy rented a hearse, put signs on it saying "RIP, Texas Democrats". Beto carried it. Nice to see repeated incumbent Congressman Pete Sessions Gone from the North Dallas district that includes the home of George W Bush. 12 more state congressional seats, 2 more state senators. And Harris county, Houston, home of George Herbert Walker Bush. Every republican on the ballot, incumbents and challengers sent packing. Who'd a thunk it? An Irishman from El Paso. I read today a Congressman has not advanced directly from there to the Whitehouse since the 1840's. So it's not impossible. It has happened before. That's a classic shot of Trigger.

    Richard Carr source data

    After my last post on this thread I thought I'd consult a primary source regarding Carr. Jim Garrison's On the Trail of the Assassin's. I knew I had it and thought I'd read it. Right and wrong. It wasn't on the top shelf where it should be. Looked around further, thought I don't remember reading it. Thought I might be mistaken, though I remembered the cover of the copy I still have. So I ordered it for six bucks total on amazon. Then I found my old paperback copy on the bottom shelf. Bought from a second hand bookstore, missing most of the pages I was interested in due to a poorly glued spline, they had fallen out. So I couldn't have read all of it. My "new" six buck hard back copy came in, a first edition from 1988 in excellent condition cover and all. Not much new to me about Carr in it. It does say he was coming down the stairway on the outside of the building he was working on*. And that he was descending them when he saw the four men exit the rear of the TSBD. I.E., regarding his credibility, if the construction stairway was on the outside of the framework of courthouse being built he might have been able to see past the "Old Red" courthouse to North Houston to the back of the TSBD. The "new" copy has a newspaper cut out from the New York Times Book Review Best Sellers ranking with a hand written date of Feb 12, 1992 taped on the outside of the cover page. On The Trail Of The Assassins is # 1, on the top 10 list for 9 weeks. Number 4 is Jim Marrs Crossfire, on the list for four weeks. Number 8 is High Treason by Groden and Livingstone for 14 weeks. My how times have changed. News papers are almost obsolete. The film JFK in 1991 caused the furthered popularity of these books, upon which it was based. We need a new spate of books from respected authors on the subject before they become senile and too forgetful as well as their collaboration with Oliver Stone on a new updated version of JFK, "The Movie". For the sake of History And Posterity, please cooperate. Yes I know Dr. Newman is still pontificating and I am ignorant regarding the extent of his and Larry Hancock's continuing work.
  10. Regarding Brown vs Board I think it can be said it carry's forward to this day in some ways not positive to the public. It inspired James McGill Buchanan to fight it in Virginia and eventually through George Mason University led us to Citizens United and the predicament we are in today. https://www.amazon.com/Democracy-Chains-History-Radical-Stealth/dp/1101980974/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1541737083&sr=1-1&keywords=democracy+in+chains

    South Knoll. Why waste my time. We've been through this before on another thread. What you claim is a train in one of the films is traffic in the background on Stemmons freeway. The train Holt (!) claims he was on didn't leave the yard until around two o'clock per Bowers. The train in the Hughes film you show is a passenger train, not a boxcar, setting stationary in the train yard beyond Bowers tower. You see the edge of the tower in it. That part of the film is taken from behind the fence on the grassy knoll looking across the parking lot. You do know you lost all credibility when you claimed shot's were fired on Main street? You really should read up on Chauncy Holt.

    Robert Francis

    A Christmas present to myself. From The Assassinations to interviews and comment I expect this to be the definitive source of information on RFK's assassination for generations though it will most likely be ignored by the MSN. True Historians will appreciate it. Free shipping during the Christmas season. https://www.amazon.com/Lie-Too-Big-Fail-Assassination/dp/1627310703/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1541654069&sr=1-1&keywords=lisa+pease On a different note about a different Robert Francis born in 1972, named after RFK (?). Hope I've not felt in a while last night in Texas. National news from the New York Times. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/07/us/texas-election-takeaways-cruz-orourke.html

    The Man with the Nixon Tattoo

    Read the last two paragraphs. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/armed-with-subpoenas-house-democrats-want-answers-on-trump-and-russia/ar-BBPswNK?li=BBnbfcL The last two sentences. "I'm not afraid to talk now and I would probably appear now Credico said. I would be open now to speak to the House... I've certainly held back a lot of stuff I know about Stone for quite awhile. It might be a good time to air it out. As the president says, 'let's see what happens."
  14. LBJ took advantage of the situation for his own personal gain. JFK and RFK's acts regarding Mississippi/Meredith, Alabama/Wallace and the welcoming of MLK and others to the Whitehouse helped set the stage for passage of the Civil Rights Act. LBJ realized it was the popular thing to support after JFK's death nationwide excepting the south to help ensure His reelection and legacy. JMO. LBJ didn't really care about the plight of "Negros" personally. He chunked rocks at them at his swimming hole to get them to leave to have it to himself in his youth.
  15. I've only read part one also. The depth, taking the subject back in time brought back a memory of the naivety of the innocence of my youth. From working at our drive in grocery NW of Dallas about 20 miles in Grapevine, then a small town of 5182 people welcoming you per the sign coming into it. This was about 72-73, I was 16-17. Next door were some government built single story retirement apartments. This tall lanky old man came in every day and bought a pack of L & M cigarettes. He'd hang around a few minutes and shoot the breeze with my dad and other customers. I don't remember how the subject came up but once he started talking about killing Nxxxxxx right and left in Tulsa back in the 20's. Never having been around any blacks or real bigots I wondered, why? He grinned, seemed proud, and I thought it sounded sick. https://tulsahistory.org/learn/online-exhibits/the-tulsa-race-riot/
