On this day in 1963

President John F. Kennedy was shot to death in Dallas Texas.

There are many theories about those behind his death ... Oswald, Russia, The CIA, Cuba along with others.

I have to wonder how deep and dirty the swamp has become given all the hatred directed at President Trump AND his family?

Perhaps the general public is being manipulated like never before. As one person recently stated:

"It is all so disgusting. And our media and Many government officials are in

cahoots to destroy this country."

I tend to hold that given the hatred shown toward President Trump ... we have no idea how horribly that will be manifested toward the citizens of the United States of America during the next several years.

"This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it." Abraham Lincoln

    Many eternal flames across the country for him back in the day but the only one left is at Arlington now. May he rest in peace.



    One spontaneous act of respect at the site was curbed almost immediately. Jacqueline Kennedy had requested that a member of the U.S. Army Special Forces (the Green Berets) be part of the military honor squad at President Kennedy's burial service.[6] She specifically asked that the Special Forces soldier wear a green beret rather than formal Army headgear.[6] After the funeral, the six military personnel in the honor guard (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, Coast Guard, and Special Forces) had spontaneously removed their covers and laid them on the evergreen boughs around the eternal flame.[46][60][61] Also laid on the greenery were the insignia of a U.S. Army military policeman and the shoulder braid from a soldier in the 3rd US Infantry Regiment.[46][60] The presence of the headgear was widely criticized after the dedication of the permanent grave site,[46] and the U.S. Army (which administers Arlington National Cemetery) ordered all such memorabilia removed from the grave in April 1967.[62]
