    Interesting, very interesting.

    It might not be his fault that he didn't know about this (IF he didn't know about this), but if it isn't his fault, then someone failed to tell him about it, and that person should be fired. The lady who was in charge of that office should definitely be fired.

    I'm in Georgia, when we get tornados they almost always head north of Atlanta and rarely hit the south of the city. They cut down all the trees up there and replaced everything with asphalt and concrete. But these idiots are now trying to the the same going south. I guess it is called progress, but so much forests and farm land has been ate up by urban sprawl, I wonder if sometime in the near future there won't be any farmable land left to grow crops.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Greetings, Pero.

    Soylent Green? I've been reading your posts on here, and all the movies you have. Do you have that one? I do, and I've probably watched it 20 times over the years!

    Yep, that is probably what this world will come to. I live 30 miles south of Atlanta, the city limits proper and urban sprawl, at least suburb sprawl is this far south. I suppose if humans are processed and put into pills and tubes, sort of like sausage, then it wouldn't be considered cannibalism. Your choice, Soylent Green or Red?

    I believe that if Obama had known about this he would have put a stop to it.

    That's all you did was just read 27 pages !!! It's a starting point for further knowledge of two men (JFK & Nixon) you have little knowledge of. Read all 138 pages.

    The Kennedy Klan has a well established machine to protect JFK's legacy.

    Do you understand how intelligence services gather and analyse information ?

    As you may have noticed, most if not all Communist nations in the world back in 1960 considered JFK to be a "reactionary" and extremely right of Nixon which is probably true. JFK was no liberal. He would be comparable today as a neoconservative.

    I wouldn't say JFK was any more corrupt than Nixon but Nixon never broke in to a court house (burglary) to start his political career like JFK did. Nixon also wouldn't put his country through what Al Gore did in 2000 in 1960. You are aware that Nixon actually won in 1960 ? When you have a couple hundred thousand dead people who casted votes back in November of 1960, that's called corruption. Before Obama stumbled on the scene, when you thought of corrupt Chicago politics you thought of the Democrat Party and JFK. Now we have Obama to look at when you talk about political corruption.

    As for JFK and McCarthism:

    JFK DEFENDS PATRIOT MCCARTHY

    >" Rising at his seat, he shouted,
    "How dare you couple the name of a great American patriot with that of a traitor!"
    The other diners lapsed into shocked silence,
    and JFK departed without hearing the rest of the program.

    John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK) wrote PROFILES IN COURAGE while lying flat on his stomach for weeks while his back wound was healing. His book profiled a dozen or so politicians who risked political gain in order to vote strictly for what they believed were the best interests of the American people. JFK had personally done this himself on more than one occassion. One of the major times was when he voted FOR the St. Lawrence Seaway even though it would cause some hardships for some of his constituents in Massachusetts. But to JFK the overall benefit to the United States outweighed the regional benefit to just one state - his home state at that!

    Another example of JFK himself having political courage was how he never spoke out against Senator Joseph McCarthy who was being persecuted and prosecuted and literally destroyed for his courage in exposing Communists in high places in the USA State Department. JFK recognized that the hatred directed toward McCarthy was an attempt to distract the American people from what McCarthy was fighting against - Communism. "< McCarthy & JFK


    I can never figure out why todays liberals or those socialist and progressives who hide under the Democrat tent and hide behind the label of liberalism would try to identify with JFK ?
