JFK ASSASSINATION ARGUMENTS
(PART 1082)


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

WHAT ARE MOST PEOPLE REALLY SAYING ABOUT VINCENT BUGLIOSI'S "RECLAIMING HISTORY"? -----> CLICK HERE.


PAUL DANZIG SAID:

BORING. PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

Well, geez, you could at least have possessed the decency to tell me that BEFORE I did all that work with those "RH" statistics, which are statistics that prove that conspiracy theorists like Jim DiEugenio don't have the slightest idea what they're talking about when they (he) say stupid things like this:

"The only person who believed it ["Reclaiming History"] was Tom Hanks." -- James DiEugenio


MARTIN COVAX SAID:

I don't need to read these reviews from book sellers on "Reclaiming History". Why should I?


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

Oh, I don't need to read the reviews either. In fact, I read none of them.

But that's not the point of my thread-starting post. The point was this:

When CTers say things like "The only person who believed it ["Reclaiming History"] was Tom Hanks" [DiEugenio; 4/15/10], it showcases their lack of knowledge about what the "mainstream" reviewers (aka: the majority of regular people who buy books and write reviews for them at Amazon and elsewhere) are saying about Bugliosi's book.

I certainly don't need to read the reviews to debunk the above silly quote uttered by Jim DiEugenio. All I needed to do is exactly what I did do -- search the Internet book sites and check out what the ratings are for "Reclaiming History".

And when you do that, you'll find that the VAST MAJORITY of people who have chosen to write reviews for Vincent Bugliosi's JFK book have given a healthy "THUMBS UP" to that book (at least as of this writing on April 29th, 2010).

Simple as that. (Much to the chagrin of Mr. DiEugenio, I would surmise.)


MARTIN COVAX SAID:

I can only give you one person's review....[Vincent Bugliosi's "Reclaiming History" is] BORING!!!!


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

Yeah, the lone-assassin truth probably is considered "boring" to most conspiracy-happy, fantasy-craving individuals of Planet Earth.

OTOH, it's quite remarkable (to me anyway) that some people who obviously have a great deal of interest in the way JFK died in 1963 (otherwise, why the heck sign up to post messages on a "JFK Forum"?) can actually read Vince Bugliosi's masterpiece of logic, common sense, and REAL EVIDENCE and then say they were "bored" by it all.

That's absolutely incredible. (And absolutely silly, too.)


MARTIN COVAX SAID:

If your point is what James DiEugenio is saying.....why do you care?


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

Apparently Martin Covax must have missed this post.


MARTIN COVAX SAID:

Judging by his [DiEugenio's] article title, using your name in it....there is some sort of vendetta goin' down.


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

Sort of looks like it, doesn't it?

I just wonder why DiEugenio cares what a nobody like me thinks.

~shrug~

I enjoy battling the "Anybody But Oswald" conspiracy theorists like James DiEugenio, though. And that's because it is so easy to knock down their silly arguments.

As far as the big-ticket items are concerned, DiEugenio (and many others just like him) never get anything right when it comes to the JFK and J.D. Tippit murder cases, which is plainly obvious by the fact that Jim D. believes Oswald shot no one on 11/22/63. And that's way below the Mendoza line. In fact, he's been batting .000 in the "How Many People Did Oswald Kill On November 22?" department for years.

Of course, Jim's not alone with that triple-zero batting average. Many CTers on the Internet share the same miserable average. Casey Stengel would be appalled.


MARTIN COVAX SAID:

Who cares about the booksellers' "star" system and James DiWhogivesadamn???? Rise above it Dave. Re-arranging your sock drawer would be a better use of time.


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

There's never a need for that, Martin. My sock drawer is always neat as a pin. In fact, I call it my "Roger Craig Sock Drawer" -- each pair of socks is always facing the same direction and is never more than an inch away from the pair beside it. ~grin~


CHRIS MESSNER SAID:

David, Bugliosi's book does not even investigate the role of Jack Dougherty, who was closest to the assassin(s), ok?


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

No. Not okay. Dougherty played no "role" in the assassination. He was questioned by the Warren Commission, and the Commission got everything there was to get out of him, whether you want to believe that or not.

(More on Dougherty HERE.)


CHRIS MESSNER SAID:

As long as you bore people on the internet with your one-sided propaganda and do not show real research effort, like demanding the exhumation of JFK, you are not credible.


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

Yeah, I can just hear myself making my pitch to the Kennedy family:

"Caroline, I have no doubt whatsoever that your father was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald, acting on his own. However, since there are thousands of crazy conspiracy-thirsty kooks here on Earth who are more than happy to throw out all of the evidence in the case and believe that Oswald was set up as a patsy to take the fall for your dad's murder, I'm afraid I need to ask you a favor -- we need to dig up your father's body, so that these crazy conspiracy kooks can then say the following after a new autopsy reveals that your father was shot only twice and from behind: David Lifton was right after all. Somebody altered JFK's wounds, and the bastards were somehow able to totally mask all of those bullets that hit the President from the Grassy Knoll."

Ouch! My butt is sure sore after Caroline (rightly) just tossed me out the door.


INSTANT REPLAY....

DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

Are you crazy, Chris? (Silly question, David.) Why in the world would I, a person who feels it's totally unnecessary, want to demand an exhumation of JFK's body?!

It is YOU, a person who thinks an exhumation is needed, who should be pounding on the door of every Kennedy family member in Massachusetts.

Don't expect me to look like a fool in front of Caroline. That's your job, Chris. Hop to it.
