With all the crooks, liars, investigations, rats telling on each other and other bad news I hope you take the time to remember this.
We did have a great President who should never be forgotten. John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Please take a minute to say a prayer to a President who in a short time United America and made all feel like the were equal and that they belonged. It's hard for any one man to change the thinking of the past but Kennedy did it. He changed a generation not all but alot of people. I remember the day he was shot and it hit my heart as I felt a relative had been killed not only a President. He formed a way of making every young American believe that was their country too. As not what your country can do for you Ask what you can do for your country. He wasn't a saint just a man who did the will of the people and gave from his heart. yes there were some who didn't want our country to unite but we had the majority. We still see the few who want to separate us like George W. Bush who was raised to believe all Americans weren't equal but Kennedy embodied a larger group who hold fast to that truth. I loved John Fitzgerald Kennedy for allowing me to be an American and all it's truths.

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has toured the country as if taking a victory lap. He's named a Cabinet and called for donations to fund his government.

Now the fiery leftist plans to be sworn in as the country's "legitimate president" on Monday as the country celebrates its 1910 revolution - thumbing his nose at the country's highest electoral court, which declared conservative Felipe Calderon the presidential election winner by less than 1 percentage point.

Wow and Kudos!!

What a racist jerk. The press better lay it on as thick as they did about Mel Gibson. There is no excuse for this type of behavior, ever.

For sure Jackie, he was a model president.

Caroline Kennedy's book A Patriot's Handbook you can see this wonderful trait comes accross in the Kennedy family. Very non-partisan and very American.


Kramer what a jerk. I'm glad people got up and left-they all should have. A Jewish racist redneck, who knew

Fitz I hope you will keep us posted on the Chicago case

Yep, You're absolutely right!

It is our civic duty to fight for our country. Just like it is to Vote, or to serve in Jury Duty.

Stand up for the Republic.

It's time for your Children to be Patriotic and Stand up for America and the Troops. This is not a one way streak.

NO MORE YELLOW RIBBONS ON YOUR SUV!

ALL AMERICAN PATRIOTS SHOULD SUPPORT A DRAFT!

BRING BACK THE DRAFT!!!

Hi T
Now GEF it's nice to see your and I on the same side of something. How long will this felling last before we see things differently again. Oh well I'll enjoy this while it last. smile

As for Kramer's comments sick people do and say sick things. I was born color blind so I just don't understand it and heard alot of people come out with things they have kept inside. I do understand the out cry as was done with Mel Gibson but two wrongs don't make a right.

Sorich Sentenced

Judge Coar "would have liked to have thrown the building at him" but he just violated the Shackman Decree.

Also on the draft Congressman Rangle-NY wanted it because it would stop the war if everyones kids were eligible for draft. He was proposing all 18 men and women register.

Thank you, jackie, for your thoughts on Kennedy.

Kennedy was basically a rich boy who I think was evolving as a human being/poltician at the time of his death. We'll never know what he would have become.

They killed him because he started behaving as if he was the president of the united states and he couldn't be bought because he was rich anyway.

I was too young (just turned 7) to remember his death, but I remember RFK's death and being very sad when I was told he'd died, and of course Chappaquiddick. I have a theory that EMK wasn't actually in the car when it was pushed over the bridge, but that's another story...

I've posted an exerpt from a novel I'm writing in which the hero, who was a child from a wealthy Repblican upper east side family when Kennedy was elected, and who as an adult tracks down the a man who, in the novel, helped frame LHO by placing his rifle in the texas book depository building and who also impersonated EMK at Chappaquiddick.

The coup d'etat which occurred on 22nd November, 1963, in Dealey Plaza, didn't involve just the killing of Kennedy himself, but a whole host of other material wtinesses to the crime, including John Arthur Paisley, whose mysterious death in 1978, which took place when the House Select committee were concluding their investigation into the deaths of JFK and MLK, formed the inital inspiration for my novel.

Jackie....I, too cried until I didn't think there could be any more tears when JFK died. Something very special died with him,and Martin Luther King, Jr and Bobby Kennedy. Well said!

Thank you Anthony for your information. Lucky for me I was old enough to know what was happening and I got to visit the White House as our class played touch football with the Kennedy's. Ya Kennedy was rich but he was raised to value people as equal with or without money. At lease that what my freshman class saw in our President. News and articles are funny to read. I like my up front and personal experience better I don't have to read the history I lived it.

Hi Grandmanuk
I guess I lived with dreams and hopes and fun that your right with JFK's death something inside broke. Yes the death of MLK and Bobby was only the realization that we had to deal with death like never before. Most of the people in my family died real old so death with young adults was new to me. I feel the pain anytime I think of that day just as I hear MLK speech as my heart beats faster with a feeling I've never understood both fear/love as if the words were from God. Being young allow me to see the words and it looked and sounded like Heaven itself.

The movie about Bobby Kennedy looks like it will be a nice tribute. Personally, I think the Kennedys have suffered more than their fair share. Most likely, at the hands of corrupt, jealous and downright evil.

Prayers for the Alabama families of the high school students on the school bus accident this morning.

MLK

What a man!

What a speaker!

"Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place, but I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land. And so I’m happy tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord."

I just hope and pray that the good Lord gives me his courage, because I think that very difficult times are coming upon us, and some of us are going to be faced with very difficult choices.
