One shooter my butt, the windshield to Kennedy's limousine is a case in point. The angle of the hole in the limo windshield could only have come from the front of the vehicle.  Also the shot that hit the metal frame at the top of the windshield came from the front.
LBJ had the limo cleaned and repaired to hide the evidence.

This guy is just a tool.

So somebody was shooting at the motorcade with rifle bullets that had a diameter of 1/32 of an inch, then, right?

A "shot" that hit the *back* of the metal frame at the top of the windshield came from the front, huh?  You, and not Arlen Specter, just posited a "magic bullet."

Deep Contact: LBJ had the limo cleaned and repaired to hide the evidence.


Funny how the FBI was able to extract all sorts of physical and photographic evidence from the limousine anyway, including two large bullet fragments.

You may want to get some of your facts straight.

The assassination planners were more concerned with killing the President than with giving the FBI a clean crime scene. I think anyone who believes the official story is a moron.

Gonz: No. While I'm not going to cite a specific percentage (because I don't discuss any aspect of my personal compensation on a public forum), I will say that my disability was high enough to trigger a medical retirement, and that the VA rates me at a level I feel appropriate for my injuries.


Glad to hear the VA is treating you fairly.

That doesn't make Magorn's comment - that the DoD / VA routinely screws disabled vets over - any less true.  I think most of us who have served have seen it happen to someone we know.   Just because the good luck fairy blessed your paperwork doesn't mean that the system works.

durbnpoisn: Just the other day, an old friend of mine, that I actually respect as a well-rounded, intelligent person, posted up on FB that he was about ready to change his mind about this conspiracy thoery based on yet again, another TV special he just saw.

They have been going over this for over 40 years.  Does it really make any difference at this point?  I mean, let's just say that there was TRULY incontrovertible evidence that Oswald was not the only shooter (or even invloved).  What would that change?  What would it prove?  Who is still alive and relevant that they could be held responsible anyway.  Don't we have other things going on today that could stand to have a better looking at?


I had the same thing happen, but the guy was harping on 9/11. Had no idea he was a Truther. Really smart guy too. He then proceeded to call me a government shill for not agreeing with him and then refused to acknowledge that was an insult.

Boggles the mind.

foxyshadis: AteMyBrain: The only people more annoying than conspiracy theorists are those smarmy, above-it-all geniuses who have decided that conspiracies simply do not ever exist in any form.

The Kennedy thing has been studied a LONG time by people who have devoted years to research and investigation. If you showed up late for the show and dismissed the whole thing as a garden variety chemtrail-esque conspiracy theory, cuz you watched a History Channel show, you just happen to be the actual moron in this scenario.

Because everyone here has said that.

Just because people don't believe your particular pet conspiracy theory doesn't make you any less of a moron, even if you dismiss all other conspiracy theories out of hand. TFA and the thread are full of mentions of actual conspiracies, and why this probably isn't one.


I couldn't care less what people believe. I'm not looking for your approval, nor do I have a "pet conspiracy". And your pointing out that "the thread is full of reasons why this isn't one" is exactly the kind of idiocy I was referencing. Yeah...imagine that. There could be information outside of a Fark thread.

FTFY

You seem to me to fail to reckon with the possibility that the Warren Commission came to the right conclusion--i.e. that Oswald acted alone--but botched the reconstruction of the assassination.
