William Vinson

In his new thread: "Did the Far Right Kill JFK" John S. writes: ". . .Members s of the far right who hated JFK include William Vinson (Great Southern Life Insurance)."

Vinson was a founding member of the prominent law firm of Vinson & Elkins so it is possible his contribution to the plot was financial advise as well as funding.

Like Ross Sterling, Vinson was one of the earliest haters of JFK. He died only two years after Sterling died (Sterling: 1949' Vinson: 1951). This was, of course, before JFK was even elected to the U.S. Senate.

The question is whatever did JFK do while he was a freshman in the House of Rrepresentatives to make these men hate him so?

I read a post too fast and admitted it but John suspected and accused me of a sinister motive.

Does not this thread indicate that even our esteemed leader can make mistakes or does John have another explanation?

Just a reminder--I am awaiting for an explanation how John could post as a fact that William Vinson, who died in 1951, "hated JFK".

I made a long list of businessmen who were candidate for funding the assassination of JFK. It included a couple of people who had died before 1963. I corrected the list but you seem to be intent in drawing the attention to everyone to it. Are you satisfied or do you want me to take out an advert in the New York Times?

This is the same tactic that you used against John B. after he made a mistake about the Alger Hiss story. Yet you are continually making mistakes based on logic. For saying that Ronald Reagan won the Cold War and that Barry Goldwater could have won the Vietnam War in two years. You refuse to discuss these issues but instead change the subject.

A mistake of FACT is far different, John, than a mistake in logic or reasoning. As someone once said, "Everyone is entitled to his opinion but he is not entitled to his own facts."

You cannot say I am wrong in arguing that Ronald Reagen won the Cold War. In fact, it is the "conventional wisdom" that he did so. You are entitled to your opinion as I am entitled to mine. My opinion, however, is the one that will (to your regret) go down in history.

At least you, unlike John B, had the "courage" to admit that you made a mistake. (He has still failed to acknowledge the error.)

Just as I admitted I erred in reading BK's post about Tom Dooley too fast and missed the possible link to the assassination.

As I said, there is now an intersing discussion on that thread re the change in the discharge status of LHO and how it fits into the assassination puzzle. I do not recall seeing any discussion of that issue on this forum or on any other assassination discussion for that matter.
