President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas 57 years ago today. My first written report was in the fifth grade and focused on the life of JFK. I borrowed a book (which I still have) from my grandma that I used as research and was instantly infatuated when she recalled how the country as a whole mourned when the president was murdered on live television. Over the years, I’ve read countless books, articles, and some of the classified and especially redacted JFK Assassination Records that were released in 2018. I read an article today stating all documents without redactions are slated to be released to the public in October 2021. Nearly 58 years later. We’ll see.
“You know, there’s a handful of people that run everything. That’s a fact, I’m not some conspiracy nut. A handful, very small, elite run and own these corporations, which include the mainstream media. I have this feeling that whoever’s elected president… when you win, you go into this smoky room with the twelve industrialists capitalists scum-fucks who got you in there. And a big guy with a cigar goes: ‘Roll the film.’ And it’s a shot of the Kennedy Assassination from an angle you’ve never seen before. It looks suspiciously off the grassy knoll. Then the screen comes up, and they go to the new president: ‘Any questions?’”- Bill Hicks
