    @Frank Sanoica The most way out theory, is that he was shot by his driver, Bill Greer.;):D

    Yes, I either read that or saw it in a documentary. It was some time back so it wasn't in someone's Facebook post.

    I alway thought it was a mob hit, ordered by LBJ, and all the others. When Hot Springs Arkansas all but shut down in the late 50's. JD Rockefeller, was going to rid the place of mafia, corruption. Owney Madden (mafia kingpin in Hot Springs, Rockefeller was really after). Dad and Uncle went to Havana Cuba (1958) to open a bath house. The place dad said, was the most lush place he'd ever seen. Run by mafia,(it was easy for mafia to fly into Cuba from Sicily then coming into the US) until the overthrow of the Cuban government, and Castro took over. Who had the most to loose the Mafia, and our presidents of the past, LBJ that had involvement with the mob.Kennedy was going to crush them, and
    Bobby Kennedy was too. Both assassinated.This was a methodical plan and wouldn't surprise me one bit the replacement agent wasn't a mob hit man. When Bobby heard word of his brother, and said, "They got him" who was he referring to,"They." He knew....This article makes sense to me. Thank-You Joe.:oops:

    It is interesting, in the case of Bobby's death, that the fatal head wound was from close range and made by a higher caliber bullet. One theory is that the Security guard behind him pulled out his 38, and fired it in the excitement, hitting Bobby. A telling photo showed Bobby lying on the floor, with the guard's clip on tie on the floor, beside him. The guns in the room were never checked, to see if they had been fired.

    Bobby Kennedy was the Mafia's worst enemy. What involvement did J Edgar Hoover have in all this? He was more then dragging his feet. And had a distaste for the Kennedy family. Some papers I've read, mentions how much Bobby hated Hoover and Hoover hated Bobby. Just my personal opinion, what happen to Bobby was also a mob hit, both assassinations with scapegoats.

    @Marilyn Pahl You are right, Marilyn, when it came to Jack & Bobby, it seems like every one was taking a number!

    I used to fly down there on business and one year I took an extra day to see Dealey Plaza for myself. its a time capsule. nothing's changed since that day. I went up to the sixth floor of the Depository bldg and stood next to the window Oswald fired from. it's encased in plastic or fiber glass. so I stood in front of the window next to it. I really didn't see how they claimed it would take a so called expert to make that shot. it really was not that far away. IMO I could have hit the target without a scope. also the buildings that surround the plaza make a great echo chamber. I could hear noises bouncing off the walls.
    remember the magic bullet theory?? im surprised it took so long to figure that one out. that bullet came from the sixth floor



    im going with Oswald till someone proves otherwise

    This was part of my husband's movie collection. I might have asked this before, but it worth asking again. Would any of you like to have this set of videos about John F. Kennedy's assassination. I just hate the idea of chunking them. Michael only watched them once or twice. I'll send them to any address you wish, be it work related or anywhere you might feel safe receiving them.

    Maybe the guys that are at the VA hospital would like to have these, @Ina I. Wonder . I don't know if they have a VCR that can play videos anymore, since most things are now on DVD's; but it can't hurt to ask.
    Also, you can put it on Craigslist and just give it to someone who wants it, or sell it on eBay. Some of them are selling for up to $50 on ebay; but they are DVD's and not videocassettes.

    except that over and over, the most skilled marksmen tested using a Carcano FAILED to duplicate Oswald's feat of firing, accurately, multiple shots in the time frame given, with ANYWHERE NEAR the accuracy needed. So, Oswald was a genius sharpshooter? Nah, that's BS.

    If you live in or around Texas and you hear hoof beats, it's more likely a horse than a zebra or camel, or unicorn.

    With Kennedy theories so far I think some hear the unicorn.

    Occam's razor (or Ockham's razor) is a principle from philosophy. Suppose there exist two explanations for an occurrence. In this case, the simpler one is usually better. Another way of saying it is that the more assumptions you have to make, the more unlikely an explanation is.

    Likewise. No unicorn apparent.

    @Gary Ridenour
    That could be debated Gary, considering the very poor qualities of the Italian Carcano rifle.
