This Day In History

In 1890, the first Army-Navy football game was played with Navy winning, 24-0.

Yeah, baby! And you will see that happen again this coming Saturday.......Admiral Keating says so.

In 1963, U.S. President Lyndon Johnson appointed the Warren Commission to investigate the assassination of U.S. President John Kennedy.

What a farce that was. This subject was recently discussed on another blog and a statistic was cited that claimed 2/3 of Americans didn't believe the Warren Commission got it right. The blog in question riduculed that 2/3s......what? I don't know a single rationale person who believes the conclusions reached by those gentleman. Seriously. Not one person I respect believes that Oswald acted alone. It was an odd exchange. There I was wanting to know who made up the other 1/3....they were the ones whose intelligence I was questioning!

Yup, 2/3s. The same amount that believe in Big Foot, Tarot, and psychics. You know, the stuff that there's no scientific basis or evidence for. Yeah, we of that 1/3 are absolutely nuts. Multiple independent studies showing that there couldn't have been anyone firing from the knoll and all that. We're just nuts. No forensic evidence. No photographic evidence. Multiple studies showing that, yes, it's possible to do the shooting. All kinds of evidence dissapears when Johnson has the car cleaned. But nope, has to be a conspiracy and despite all evidence to the contrary we who follow the evidence are nuts.

Whatever. This is why I make no deals with Royalty. :)-

Listen smartass - this is the same arguement I had over at Lex's place.
It is insulting to compare people who disagree with the Warren Commission findings to people who believe in Bigfoot. There *is* evidence of conspiracy/cover-up in what is known about the Kennedy assasination. I resent you dismissing it.
Some Yahoo from some backwater saying aliens took him into a ship is a far cry from responsible eyewitnesses who said that shots came from in front of the motorcade. Period.
You can make whatever joke you like about "royalty". People who disagree with the Warren Commission are also following evidence. So you can stop with the snide looking down your nose at the majority of Americans who aren't ready to blindly follow the government.
Healthy skepticism is a good thing.
Reasonable people can disagree on certain parts of this story. One side insulting the intelligence of the other is really non productive, isn't it?
