Charles Black Posted July 21, 2007 Share Posted July 21, 2007 (edited) During recent years, I have often been both criticised and ignored when I have posted certain views or assassination "scenarios", which many call far "out of the box" and contain too great a degree of "speculation". In a review of some of these, which tho I admit are not in support of appx. 99% of the more popular thoughts or discussion subjects, I have decided that if I am at all rationally cognizant of existing "facts", these ideas / speculations are factually quite sound and are theoretically and factually more sound than many well accepted theories which are still being ( RE ) discussed to the point of nausea. I have taken a great deal of flak for being "overly speculative." By my thinking, other than for many details involving persons whom might have been associated with this conspiracy, the past couple of decades has really introduced nothing that has changed or increased knowlege of what occurred in Dealey Plaza. In order to proceed, it will be necessary to reiterate several of my past statements which I find increasingly valid, as I wade thru more and more of the posts in this case.....most of which I feel are "well past redundancy". Some subjects have and continue to be so overly pursued that I feel that these topics, that do little more than offer a soapbox for repetitive and quite redundant issues......that do not effect or even approach the seeking of "closure " to this issue. Perhaps I am completetly wrong and out of order. I, however approach this issue as more than a forum for debate. My proposed goal for this and similar forums are much higher than acting as an arena of undirected debate. Again; if we are not seeking closure / solution, why are we here? I will come now to the reason for this posting. It should be quite evident to most who have studied this case, that we have followed only a handful of speculative theories. We ONLY KNOW that JFK was killed and JBC was seriously wounded by "apparent" gunfire in Dallas Texas on 11/22/63 at appx. 12:30 PM CST. We Do Not know, how many shots were fired, how many gunmen fired them, where these gunmen were located, what type of weapons were used, the exact NUMBER of "hits" or separate wounds that were inflicted on either JFK or JBC, the extent of the wounds ( since there is no decided clarity on the EXACT nature or number of wounds or, in reality, the FACTUAL extent of the wounds ). We do not know if there were two shooters or ten! In my opinion, "WE KNOW", only little morwe than what we were "MEANT To KNOW". It would seem to me that after 43 years, if one is expecting the answer to come from these same known "facts" ......that there will be no answer. Yet anyone attempting to introduce the thought that what occurred in Dealey Plaza is ABSOLUTELY NOT what it seems; and therefore another and different scenario must have ocurred is referred to as ignorant...."or attempting to be overly speculative and not following the preponerance of [ EVIDENCE ? ]". In that many of you have chosen to ignore MY personal pleadings as the ravings of "another uninformed", I will now get to the purpose of this thread. I am proposing the addition of another and different "pinned Thread", which might be titled "Alternative Theory". In this thread we would "ignore" a few very old " FACTS " such as: three gunmen...a "military" style ambush"....triangulation of fire....a single gunman....only the use of "high or medium power rifles"....no weapons such as concealed handguns...impossibility of female assassins, spotters or helpers....and the theory that previously "undetected shooters" can be found in the continuing study of the 43 year old photographs.....and the VAIDITY "in entirety" of the Zaruder Film as being "un-soiled"! My purpose for the creation of this thread would be to inspire in some researchers NEW thought ! Old thought has brought only OLD and UNPROVEN "non-solutions". Do we really feel that further study of the same "evidence" will disclose new solutions? I have been called "out in left field"....which is true because I was a pretty good left fielder. And I prefer to remain there, as I see the popular theories dying natural deaths as they continue to "strike out". Team morale is bound to be currently waning. Both winning and losing can be contagious ! I propose that one should imagine oneself as "the planner of the shooting"! A planner that had at his or her disposal TRULY "unlimited resources and support". How would you plan an ABSOLUTELY ASSURED KILL ? Perhaps I really am a kook and my "wild speculations" should continue to be ignored, so as not to overload the forum with only speculative minutae ! Also, just as an afterthought.....perhaps the three or four pages in the topic involving "Swearing" have jumped to the "forefront" of the forum because....IT IS SOMETHING NEW....It might indicate that "Boredom Prevails" as a result of the redundancy to which I have so often referred regarding the endless continuation of, in most part, entirely repetitive discussions ! Perhaps a decision should be made as to whether the forum should actively PURSUE a case solution: or whether the primary purpose of this forum is to educate the pre-college level students and to decide what they should or should not be exposed to. I realize the importance to the EDUCATORS that created this excellent forum, that this highly regarded and excellently rated forum should not be degraded by inappropriate behaviour.
