6. What do you mean "find out"? Are you intimating that there is more to

 

the s word than male and female? That my folks hid something from me? I am married with two children. I think my wife has some explaining to do.

5. Like mentioning the conspiracy of Nov. 22, 1963.

It won't get on tee vee.

Oh. Rupert Murdoch and his FOX network were gung-ho for war on Iraq. Why would they stand behind that lie?

Cough BP and MI-6. Cough EXXON and CIA.

13. When it comes to the assassination of JFK, you don't know what you're talking about, Logical.

JFK was killed by a conspiracy and elements of the CIA seem to have played a big role. Learn about it here and here.

15. So, you know all there is to know in your own mind.

Which, as it goes, must be most reassuring.

If you were interested in developing some new ideas, let alone learning the latest, you would read.

Otherwise, you aren't in an informed position needed to make a judgment.

18. So, can you show me where I'm wrong?

If you had the facts, you'd show me. But you don't.

I don't know everything, even probably most, of what there is to know when it comes to the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, his brother, once Attorney General and later Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, and that of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. RFK's kids said their father called the Warren Report "shoddy workmanship" and suspected a conspiracy.

One thing I do know: The assassinations of these three liberal, progressive leaders changed the course of the nation and the planet. Don't believe me or too lazy to read? Then look around: Today -- the richest time in human history -- money trumps peace and progress.

22. Every program on national television that aired during the 50th anniversary said ''Oswald did it.''

Not a single "special" documentary that aired on ABC, NBC, CBS or Fox said otherwise. It was odd, especially considering all that's been learned in the past 50 years.

So, who do you think is telling the truth? The mass media or the academics and experts I heard speak at Duquesne, some of whom have devoted 50 years of their lives in search of the truth -- many investigating the assassination of President Kennedy on behalf of the federal government; or the corporate controlled mass media who lie America into war, protect war criminals and allow all manner of treason in government and corruption by the 1-percent to pass unmentioned, uninvestigated and unpunished?

19. Then decline the interview.

If you can't talk honestly and freely on the subject due to their restrictions then the ethical thing to do is to decline the interview.
