(PART 31)


>>> "The best analogy I can make is this -- Mike Stivic made a lot of sense, but when you are dealing with Archie Bunkers (LNers) you aren't going to make any headway. You think every single thing you are told is 100% fact. No thought of double checking to make sure." <<<


Talk about a classic Pot/Kettle statement coming from the lips of a
conspiracy kook....the one above takes the prize (and the cake too).

I guess Rob really DOESN'T mind looking like a complete fool, 24/7. Go
figure that, kids o' the corn. ~shrug~

Anyway, you CT-Kooks believe pretty much EVERY single thing that
conspiracy authors write, without any checking for verification or truth
concerning those beliefs.

As Vince Bugliosi has said so very well (and it's never been more true
than in the case of this kook named Robert Caprio):

"The conspiracy community regularly seizes on one slip of the tongue, misunderstanding, or slight discrepancy to defeat twenty pieces of solid evidence; accepts one witness of theirs, even if he or she is a provable nut, as being far more credible than ten normal witnesses on the other side; treats rumors, even questions, as the equivalent of proof; leaps from the most minuscule of discoveries to the grandest of conclusions; and insists that the failure to explain everything perfectly negates all that is explained." -- Vincent Bugliosi

Good case in point: The "automatic" shells that some CTers think were
found at the Tippit murder scene.

A kook hears that there was some initial talk about the gunman
possibly having an "automatic" weapon on Tenth Street....and the
kooks latch onto that info and refuse to ever let go of it, even when
it's been PROVEN to them that the initial knee-jerk statements
regarding an "automatic" were just that--initial knee-jerk (and incorrect)
statements. The first such statement coming from a WITNESS,
btw--Ted Callaway--not a policeman.

But LNers can go BEYOND the initial statements and look at the
whole picture:

1.) If an "automatic" was used to kill Tippit, then NO GUNMAN (no
matter WHO he was) would have been seen physically shaking bullet
shells out of a gun just after Tippit was shot. The "shaking of
shells" indicates right there that a REVOLVER, not an automatic, was
the Tippit murder weapon. And there's no evidence at all to indicate
that more than just a SINGLE gun was used on Tenth Street on 11/22/63.

2.) MANY witnesses IDed (positively) Lee Harvey Oswald as the ONE and
only killer of Officer Tippit (or as the ONE and only man who fled the
scene of the crime just after the murder).

3.) Oswald, when arrested, had on him a REVOLVER, not an automatic.

4.) The revolver taken off of Oswald just half-an-hour after Tippit
was killed was determined by multiple firearms experts for the FBI and
an independent expert from Illinois (Joseph Nicol) to be the weapon
that was used to kill Officer Tippit (based on the four spent shell
casings, which were all linked to Oswald's gun, and also based, in
part, on Mr. Nicol's independent examination of the bullets in J.D.
Tippit's body, an examination that revealed--in Nicol's personal
opinion--that one of the four bullets recovered from Tippit's body
could be positively matched to Oswald's revolver "to the exclusion").

Now, what were you saying about "automatic" shell casings, Mr. CTer?

>>> "Of course he [Lyndon Johnson] was stacking the deck." <<<


So Johnson "stacked the deck" with a person (Richard Russell) who
later went on the record with his belief that a conspiracy DID exist
with respect to JFK's death and his DISbelief in his own Commission's
Single-Bullet Theory???

Is that the kind of "stacked deck" that LBJ (who many kooks think was
deeply involved in the proverbial post-Nov. 22 "cover-up", of course)
was putting his trust and faith in? Lovely.

Oh, just so you'll know, I like Archibald Bunker (and "The Meathead"
and "The Dingbat") very much.

You, though, Rob, seem more like the "Stretch Cunningham" type to me
(i.e., probably a pretty nice guy, but the ol' elevator doesn't quite reach
the top floor...or even the 6th Floor of the 7-story Depository Building). ;)
