JFK- 50th anniversary of his passing


Recommended Posts

Today marks the 50th anniversary that we lost one of the best men that this country ever produced. The media is doing a great job honoring him so I am not going to try and add to it except for this clip, for those that have not seen it. Classic cigar smoker stuff...

Granted it was a different and tumultuous time...

Rest in peace

For me the death of JFK was the start of the slide of America's fall from greatness.

Hmm. Might want to go back to Lincoln for something like that.

Any of you guys watch the documentary "JFK: smoking gun"?

Claims one of his secret service agents actually shot the fatal bullet accidentally after the first two shots by lee Oswald. Interesting and something I have never heard of before

JFK is an interesting topic and perhaps always will be. I was 4 when he was shot and even as an Australian I have always felt a sadness about the way his 3 short years in office was ended. It would be interesting to know how he would have been remembered had he not been assassinated. Would we still see him as the promise of the future or just another politician who promised much and delivered little.

One of the things that we have now that was missing then is a media that has very little regard for high office and the respect that an individual who holds such an office should be afforded. I think we all know that JFK had an eye for the ladies and in this respect he had something in common with a man who met him as a child and went on to follow him into the very same office. Look how the modern media treated Bill, but that's another story.

I am glad that we remember John Fitzgerald Kennedy with affection. We remember him as a man who saw wrong and tried to right it, a man who had a dream and took us to the moon and back.

Not long after his death two men were talking and one said " We will never be happy again" The other man replied. "We will be happy again but we will never be young".

This year I have been amazed at the amount of theories that have been dug up again about exactly who was responsible for his death.

It brought back a memory of something that happened back in 1989.

I was over in the US to compete in a pistol competition called the Bianchi Cup in Missouri.

On the way there I stayed with a friend of one of the guys I was travelling with. This guy lived in LA and was an NSA agent.

After a few too many scotches and well into the small hours he told me that JFK was shot by someone from in his motor cade.

It's one of those comments that at the time you put down to alcohol but it's interesting that they seem to be pushing this theory now.

Has any body here seen my old friend John?

Just a handful of things that I would once have sacrificed major organs to know the answer to. But I think I have found peace now in realising that I will never really know!

Great post Warren. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but do believe something happened on that day that was conveniently 'handled'. Last night my dad rose an interesting point that given the nature of the times back then (cuban missile crisis, Cold War etc) that if the true facts got out of an insider killing the president it would have created a massive rift between the public and the government that might have made the US really vulnerable. So for the good of the country things were hushed up.
