Doesn't everyones's family date back to the 1860' s- I like America. Big time. Europeans own everything to America. Their freedom and wealth.Just tell me this, ma'am.Do you ever pass by Dealey Plaza?I always thought it strange that the texans didn't yell for justice in 1963.First Jfk gunned down, then Lee Harvey gunned down 2 days later in the police station.
Whoaaa, you have a long way to go on this trail ride kid. My family goes back to the 1600's landing in America. And people came to America as late as 1950's and are still coming here. I was in school on the day JFK was murdered, it was a Friday. I am not going into any detail about conspiracy theories but Lee Harvey Oswald was a loose cannon and considered a schizophrenic and severly messed up. H would have stalked out JFK no matter where he was. It just happened to be Dallas, and where he was living at the time. Dallas LOVED JFK and the entire city was in celebration that he was coming here. It was all everyone wanted to talk about.....that the president was coming to our city. All of us at my school including the teachers were buzzing over the Kennedy's coming for a visit. My best friend and her family were on route downtown to see the president and his lovely wife. When JFK was in the convertible and the Connally's ( John Connally was the governor of Texas) were in the front, Mrs. Connely turned around and said to the President "Mr. President, you certainly cannot say that Dallas does not love you."
Then the shots rang out. http://web.lconn.com.../connally.htm
On October 2, 1963, Oswald left Mexico City by bus and arrived in Dallas the next day. On October 14, a neighbor told Ruth Paine that there was a job opening at the Texas School Book Depository
. Mrs. Paine informed Oswald, who was interviewed at the Depository and was hired there on October 16.
FBI agents twice visited the Paine home in early November, when Oswald was not present, and spoke to Mrs. Paine.
Oswald visited the Dallas FBI office about 2 to 3 weeks before the assassination, asking to see Special Agent James Hosty
; told Hosty was unavailable, Oswald left a note that, according to the receptionist, read:
"Let this be a warning. I will blow up the FBI and the Dallas Police Department if you don’t stop bothering my wife" [signed] "Lee Harvey Oswald."
The note allegedly contained some sort of threat, but accounts vary as to whether Oswald threatened to "blow up the FBI" or merely "report this to higher authorities". According to Hosty, the note said, "If you have anything you want to learn about me, come talk to me directly. If you don't cease bothering my wife, I will take the appropriate action and report this to the proper authorities." Agent Hosty said that he destroyed Oswald's note on orders from his superior, Gordon Shanklin, after Oswald was named the suspect in the Kennedy assassination
