If it's a member of the Kennedy clan, something tells me that alcohol ~might~ have been a factor. Just...maybe...

J. Frank Parnell: goorange: The Kennedys where Jew hating monsters- starting with Joe supporting Hitler

The Bush family also supported Hitler. Even moreso.

What are your feelings on that?


Honestly, not the same

I feel America doesn't love them the same way so god doesn't need to kill them

And Prescott wasn't as an avowed supporter of the nazis

My bad dude. Major Apologies. I honestly thought it was about the other Kennedys.

Ah, you guys know she wasn't a Kennedy by blood, right? So does marrying one make you a Kennedy?

There are several sheds behind the home - some hold garden tools and another is a falcon house - on a slope leading to a lake.


Any relation to R. Cory?

Hmmmmm, let's see:

1. Marry a Kennedy, knowing damn well what you're getting into;

2. Have him screw around with other women behind your back;

3. Go all to pieces when you find out he acts like all the other Kennedys act;

4. Wreck your life with booze and drugs, instead of getting a good divorce lawyer;

5. Hang yourself at 52, when you could have smacked him in the chops for $20 million or so and lived happily ever after.

That about get it?

Sorry chick; no sympathy here. With $20 large to blow at 52, you could spend about $350,000 a month and still die rich; plenty of "boy toys" in that price range.

moops: Oznog: The situation was not well documented, but her being mentally retarded at all IS in dispute. She may have been growing up in a situation of impossible expectations in a very male-dominated household, and rebelling against that. There's just very little to go on, largely because the Kennedys covered up the situation after the failed lobotomy to avoid the inevitable political disgrace of

She was lobotomized at 23. Reading the wikipedia article, it sounds very possible she had a bipolar issue. Early 20s is typically when it wakes up. In those days, we locked up bipolar folks in animal-cage rooms and let them live in their own filth. We also shocked the hell out of them, had them sterilized, and gave them lobotomies.


Well, the obvious suggestion here is that Joe Kennedy didn't want a girl running around embarrassing the family and endangering their political aspirations. Actually mentally retarded seems to have been much more socially acceptable than mentally ILL.

It's easy to conclude that he had her lobotomized to just make the problem go away. She couldn't do ANYTHING on her own anymore, including making trouble. Well, at the time, lobotomy WAS thought by the field to be of benefit to the patient with reasonable consistency. Of course it wasn't, but you might excuse Joe on the basis that he might well have thought it would help her as promised.

What is NOT so easily excusable is that by hiding the horrific results, the practice continued for many, many years later. With such a high profile case, that should have been able to end it then and there. By making the mistake "go away", it perpetuated it.
 
2012-05-17 12:32:41 AM  
Kennedy's can't die fast enough for me. Pieces of shiat. And Joe Kennedy was a scumbag of the first degree. HIs stock market tactics would put him in jail today. Thought nothing of screwing over his "friends".
 
2012-05-17 12:37:32 AM  
I think it's time to put an end to the Kennedy Curse. If we just go ahead and euthanize all of old Joe's descendants, we'll never have to hear about it again.

On the day of Rosemary's death, I composed this limerick, and posted it on a Fark thread;

"There was once a young Kennedy named Rosemary,
Who was slightly retarded, but not very;
So they gave her a lobotomy---
And she died, of monotony?
And now she's out buried in the cemetary."


----------- aisle seat please, non--smoking.

douchebag/hater: 1) Sad because of the kids and because it's a suicide

2) Why ANY ONE gives a fark about this pack of drunks, criminals, cheaters, drug abusers, addicts, murderers, liars and politicians is beyond me.


Agreed on #1. As to the second, I don't really have any empathy for them but Caroline seems like a nice lady every time she goes on TDS or Colbert and reads poetry. I'm kinda glad she didn't go into politics like they rumored might happen last election. That said, she goes on TDS too damn often, her stuff is nice but not 'wowza' and I'd rather see him interview someone a little more interesting/powerful.
 
2012-05-17 01:11:29 AM  
Huh. I thought she had died in a concentration camp during WWII.

Igor Jakovsky: //does anyone do lobotomies in this day and age?


Sadly, no. I think it would be a growth industry, if it were ever made legal. Why, I know a number of people who should be lobotomized.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s estranged wife, Mary, who battled her husband's rumored philandering by turning to alcohol and prescription drugs...

Oh, yeah. That will teach him. Because if there's one thing that will convince a guy to stay home instead of cheating on you, it's being a drugged up alcoholic.

the_chief: It's almost like all Kennedys eventually die.


Good thing I still have some 1969 Glenlivet left over from celebrating Ted's death.
 
2012-05-17 04:13:25 AM  

you are a puppet: Great Justice: FTA: Calling it an "unattended death," police said she was "located inside an out building" on South Bedford Road, RFK Jr's home, according to records.

Can anyone help explain what this means?

An openly gay building. Usually painted pink or some rainbow variant.


My house is pink stone and I have an outbuilding. Does that make me gay? Crap, the wife's going to be really pissed when she finds out.

dopirt: bim1154: bhcompy: Can't say the family hasn't earned the dish karma has given them

Ever since Pres. John Kennedy got himself killed on my 9th bday and fu(ked up my bday party, things sort of went down hill after that. Yep.. karma's a biatch.

Shoot, it pushed my actual birthday back two days. I was born pretty much exactly when Oswald was shot. I live in Dallas now, and my property is adjacent to what used to be Jake Ruby's party house (CSB).


We were robbed!

Had a few encounters over the decades with RFK Jr, incredibly arrogant jerk but he was deep into drugs most of that time, so WTH. Met his eldest sister several times, she was principled, felt bad for her that she devoted all of her adult life to getting ahead in Maryland politics, but ultimately she didn't have what it took to make it to the top.

RFK Jr has as much anti-vax blood on his hands as Jenny McCarthy, for the irresponsible and hysterical article he wrote in Rolling Stone.

Ted Kennedy and Mary Jo Kopechne were driving home from a party on Chappaquiddick island. Mary Jo turned to Ted and said; "Teddy, I'm pregnant".
Ted turned to her and said; "Well, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it".
