JFK: what to believe

November 24, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

November 22, 2013 marked 50 years to the day that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. As the years go by, the controversial nature of most political situations fades, but in this case, the controversy is as strong as ever. Who really killed JFK? Did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone? How could the single bullet theory actually be contrived by the Warren Commission and be accepted for many years? Were the Cubans involved, or was this retaliation because Kennedy didn’t want to start the Vietnam war?

A million questions exist as well as a million theories. Everyone has their own opinion on it, but what many can agree on is JFK didn’t deserve to have his brains blown out on that Dallas street 50 years ago.

I wonder what type of country we’d be living in now if he wasn’t killed in the name of “the greater good”.

The other day I took some time out and viewed Oliver Stone’s “JFK” for the first time in many years. It still holds up well. It’s available on Amazon Instant if you’ve got about 3 hours to spare.

Many amazing actors in this film, including Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner, Sissy Spacek, Jack Lemmon, Kevin Bacon, and so many others.
