I'm surprised this isn't on here already, but ... Who killed JFK?

Oh yeah, here's something funny that deals with the memorial pools dedicated to JFK:

I was visiting the Six Floors Museum, which if any one of you been there, you would know that there are two moderately long pools next to it. As I was passing by I saw many people SWIMMING in it, like it was nothing. What do you think of that?!

The pools were dedicated in honor of JFK. They were right next to the Six Floors as a tribute! Coincidence? I bet not!

I think JFK would not mind if people swam in pools dedicated to him for fun. But people pee in public pools, that's why i never going in one anymore.

JFK died Warren Commission lied. :mrgreen:


Seriously though, I rarely subscribe to any conspiracy theories at all. I think most of them are rather silly. But JFK is the one where I think, not necessarily that there was a conspiracy, but the investigation was severely bungled.


JFK's death is a popular topic here in Australia, at least in this state, as it's taught as a part of a modern history syllabus (to students who pick it of course). And it's meant to illustrate the students the necessity of critical thinking, bias identification, historiography etc.

Oh btw Oliver Stone's movie? Full of holes. I didn't even watch all of it. I just watched like one scene and found one huge flaw.

By "all the good presidents" you mean two? Because last I checked FDR died pretty peacefully. :wink:

Also it's arguable how good JFK was. In terms of charisma and presence, he was incredible, as his handling of the Cuban missile crisis I thought was excellent and may have saved the world. ... Okay yeah he was a pretty great president.
