Is anyone else hooked?

Postby Ricky Clow » Wed Jun 13, 2007 2:50 am

I've been into the assassination for a bit over a year now and am completly hooked, some times i'll be up for over a day finding information. It's pretty much my lifes sole purpose to do this. I am so commited I wear a JFK pendant around my neck all the time (yes a little weird but still). I myself am finishing my grade 9 year and can't wait for two more years untill the 45th annaversary as I'm going to go to Dallas and visit Dealy Plaza. Many of my friends care nothing about the assassination, as I's like to thank Wim Dankbaar with all the thanks I have for making this forum and so I can share my thoughts with all of you guys. So what I'm asking are you guy hooked to :P ? I love this interest im 15 and am nuts about this and have die go to the grave loyalty saying that there was a conspiracy to kill John F. Kennedy. Thank you all.

hi Ricky,
yes i'm hooked too. I'm 53 and i recall watching JFK funeral on tv... The sixties were a great decade... JFK, Vietnam war, Mohamed Ali, the Beatles, Woodstock, landing on the moon, etc... But i wonder... you're 15... JFK was shot in 1963.... Why are you so hooked on that ?

I don't think we'll ever know the truth.

Ricky,
So glad to hear you are interested in what happened so many years ago. So many young people nowadays are just interested in partying and making money. Bless You!
However, take it in stages and do not let it consume you. You will do better and see things more objectively if you take periodic breaks from this.
Go out and have fun and have a life!
I was 11 when JFK was killed and am a native Texan. I see things a little differently because of that. People just do not understand how things work down here. The good ole boy system is still alive and well but we are trying to change that. The color of justice is green.
When you lived through the civil rights struggle of the south in the 60's, you have an entirely different perspective. I was there to see the "colored" water fountains, restrooms, and waiting rooms. I used to think that "colored" on the sign meant that the water that came out might be red or blue. I was young.
One thing I do remember, very vividly was the day the Life magazine came in the mail with the photo of LHO on the front and the rifle. I may have only been 11 but I remember being totally creeped out by it. I knew even then at that age that something was wrong with that photo.

Thanks and I still have fun. And if only I could have been alive during the 60's.

Ricky/Growing up in the 60s

Postby LiAnn Simpson » Tue Jun 26, 2007 7:12 pm

Growing up in the 60's was not all it is cracked up to be. The music was great but living with the constant threat of the cold war was not. I used to have recurring nightmares about it after the Cuban Missile Crisis. We also faced alot of media censorship back then that you don't have now. But I guess better that than the terrorist threat now. Sometimes I think that there is too much public access now which is also not good.
I did however have one brief shining moment in the early 60's when I had the distinct honor of seeing and shaking hands with Robert Kennedy when he was campaigning in Texas for his brother. What an incredible smile he had. I often think RFK would have made the better President. He did not have the demons that his older brother had and I think he was a more disciplined individual and more family oriented. Not to take anything away from JFK, however, who performed admirably during the worst of times.

It has always troubled me how much RFK had to endure after his brother's death. It's unimaginable the animosty I'm sure was exhibited toward him by various higher ups from that point on and also looking them in the face wondering which one had a hand in his brother's demise. Maybe some of our more informed and brilliant members can shed some light, but I believe I read a while back that RFK couldn't hastily pursue his brother's murderers due to him and JFK had some involvement in a plot to assasinate Castro. This was in some ways a form of blackmail to get him to keep his mouth shut. My understanding is it was a high ranking general who they had as an insider, whom is still around in the Cuban administration til this day.

RFK

Postby LiAnn Simpson » Tue Jun 26, 2007 9:17 pm

There were a number of reasons that RFK was reluctant to pursue the issue. One was most definitely the Cuban special operations. I also read a book about Jackie that stated that investigating JFK's death also meant investigating his life which would have opened a Pandora's box that the Kennedy family did not want to open. While I have a great deal of admiration for our late President, it was obvious he had been living on the edge for some time both personally and politically. The death of his infant son Patrick was a huge wakeup call for him and I think sobered him tremendously but by then it was too late. The secret death squad had already sealed his fate.

Ricky, Like yourself I am regarded by friends as obsessed with JFk's death. I was ten years old when it happened and I've been hooked since I was about 15 when I just realised that the Warren report was a pile of garbage.

Once I became a police officer aged 21 I got some training in investigative techniques etc and it confirmed to me even more that the whole case stinks; the investigation into JFK and RFk/MLK murders was deliberately inept. Very sad, because I think that had the cases been investigated properly the real murders would have been caught fairly easily.

You will probably never loose your interest. My interest/obsession comes and goes. Sometimes I despair that the truth will ever be known, other times I am very positive that it will.

Don't let it take over your life mate - there are plenty of other great things to do!

Ian, I was 11 when the assassination happened. I wish that the Europeans and others would have spread some of the skepticism across the pond because most Americans were clueless about the conspiracy until the JFK movie came out. We had also never seen the Zapruder film.
There were two things however that always bothered me. Even though I was only 11 I always was skeptical about that bullet that went through 2 men, it just wasn't even logical.
The other was the day I took the Life magazine out of the mailbox several weeks after the assassination and got a look at LHO and his rifle. I didn't know what it was back then but the picture just was creepy and didn't seem real. Little did I know.
