JFK Assassination 50th Anniversary

I don’t particularly remember anything about that day. My mother says she yanked me out of my kindergarten class and kept me home for a whole week.

I remember the televised funeral. And little John-John, saluting the caisson carrying his father as it passed by the fragile, little family.

Not to trivialize anything about that day, but when Mad Men aired an episode on the day, I had much better feel for the shock and fear that rocked my parents and the entire nation.

The Dallas Morning News has a time line that is helpful for those of us too young then, or not born at all.

Met Retired Major General Paul E. Vallely

Via The Daley Gator:

Vallely, formerly the deputy commanding general of Pacific Command, said the current crop of leaders must be forced to resign by the “demand resignation” process, which he explained requires massive grass-roots protests and social networking. As an example, he cited the public and media pressure that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon.

Impeachment, Vallely said, is not a viable option because of “partisan politics.”

“Our federal government continues down the path of destroying America,” he said. “Americans must now stand up and put America back on the right track.”

Read the whole thing. I’ll wait.

With the (Un)ACA imploding, Democrats running for the hills, damaging lies being exposed every day, there might be a chance to salvage this country.
