Yep, Kathy thanks to an arrangement wih the FBI and Psychiatry they manipulated an innocent to kill ,only of course after JFK refused to be part of the Elitest plan.
A good day will be when we finally pull down the walls they hide behind!

I was only 7 at the time, but I remember it coming on the news and being upset about it.
Later I would learn what a truly great man he was.
If only...

I was shocked. After hearing the news, I spoke to a neighbor about it and he said, "He deserved to get shot". I was stunned into silence. I'm just glad I didn't punch-out that old geezer and find myself in jail.

I was a young activist working for a local political candidate when we heard the news. RFK's death touched me deeply and my idealism about politics would never resurface. I was a true believer until that day. The country lost a truly dynamic and strong leader. A sad day for all. And yes, that picture is awful.

Thanks for the reminder, Chrissy. RFK. was our last hope of righting the wrongs done by his government and family. I remember watching his speech live and feeling a ray of wonder at his prophetic words. I also had a foreboding that someone would try to prevent him from carrying out his plans. I cried, as I and thousands of others, watched him being assassinated. Sirhan Sirhan was not the one who murdered him( he was made yet another patsy), it was one of RFK's secret servicemen and from behind him( Watch the film footage and you'll see for yourself). This was the last of chance for a truly democratic and open government for many years to come. Too many male members of this illustrious family have met untimely and contrived deaths.(Remember JFK, Jr. who mysteriously died in a plane crash just after he was considering running for President against Bush, Jr?) Too sad. There is no such thing as coincidences, especially where Politics and control of the masses are concerned..Peace in our Quest for Truth.

PS . My error about who RFK. was running against. It wasn't the Bush clan but the energy behind his death has a familiar ring of subterfuge, nevertheless. Peace in Our Quest for Truth
