Today is the 50th Anniversary of the assignation of the 35th President of the United States. There is much being made about the loss of America's innocence. How this day changed the country and of course tons of conspiracy theories. The only thing we know about the assignation is that the official story is a lie. I suspect that is all we will ever know about that topic.
Kennedy grew up a rich kid in America. He had the best opportunities and he made the most of them. When war came, he did his part. He even earned the Navy and Marine Corps medal for his efforts in WWII.
The "if only" comments that are floating around annoy me. As in "if only" JFK had lived then, (insert favorite cause here), all would be well in the world. BS. JFK would be unelectable in 21st century America. He was down with a balanced budget AND lowering taxes. Sure he was known to be banging a movie star but that wouldn't be enough. Kennedy and Regan were very much alike politically, we will never see the like of them in office again.
