I am not from the United States (I’d rather not say “American”, since America is the whole continent). However I’ve always felt JFK as someone inspiring and a true democratic leader.

I saw today in Facebook, a post from “Business Insider”, where according to the news, secret service agent Clint Hill is publishing his memoirs about him and the First Lady, among which, he reveals some gruesome details too.

Someone must have thought an excellent idea to just pick only those morbid details and put them all together, to give us more information about Kennedy’s assassination. But (there’s always a “but”), it’s obviously not information about the investigation, or new findings on the crime, it’s just descriptive details of the very moment of the shooting, instead.

It really got me upset, to realize that people are still being “shocked” by these disgusting and disrespectful details, while at the same time feel nothing and continue living with hardly any concerns, on not knowing the truth (which, to me is even more shocking).

Once more, these facts show that people have the governments they deserve (only I’m also involved, and affected by those  governments).

I guess we’ll just have to keep on eating this Obama-Merkel-Sarkozy bush-shit.

That morning I was at my desk at work with the television tuned to CNN, trying to concentrate on the newspaper, when I became barely conscio … Read More
