The real estate people (aka realtors*) like to minimize this kind of thing…

Crazy Rob Anderson vs. the Single Bullet Theory, Chapter # ??? – 48 Years of Conspiracy Theories

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

I don’t know where people get the idea that we’re entitled to a perfect F.B.I., but some seem to have that notion.

So, because the F.B.I. didn’t do everything perfectly in the investigation of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, then that means there had to be a massive conspiracy?

Does that make sense?

Oh look, Wikipedia, for one, got it right:

“Location: Dallas, Texas
Date: November 22, 1963
Time: 12:30 p.m. (Central Time)
Target: John F. Kennedy
Attack type: Sniper rifle
Death(s): 1 killed (President Kennedy)
Injured: 2 wounded (Governor Connally and James Tague)
Perpetrator(s): Lee Harvey Oswald”

Oswald, the former Marine Corps marksman, was a gun nut who liked shooting military and paramilitary authority figures – it was his thing. For example, before he shot and killed Commander-in-Chief JFK, he shot retired U.S. Army General Edwin Walker (with the rifle Oswald bought mail-order, the very same one he used to kill JFK). And then, after he shot and killed JFK, he shot and killed Dallas Police Department Officer J.D. Tippet and then he attempted to shoot Dallas Police Department Officer N.M. McDonald.

He was a shooty person back in ’63 – what can you do?

Is it so impossible to believe that there are random assassins out there, people who act on their own, people like Sirhan Sirhan and James Earl Ray and Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme and Sara Jane Moore and John Hinckley Jr. and Mark David Chapman and Jared Loughner?

Apparently.

Oh well.

See you next year.

P.S. It was a regular bullet what killed JFK, not a “magic bullet.”

I assume a rubber bullet did that, but it could have been something else…

All the Deets of Thursday’s “Spare the Fare” BART Shooting Protest at Powell Station – Flyer with Nice Bullet Icon

(Keep in mind that any protest on BART property is “illegal” without a permit.)

I seriously doubt the No Justice No BART will be able to get you home without BART “profiting” from the transaction on September 8th, 2011, but anything’s possible, I s’pose…

Will You Board This Jitney Bus After Arriving in SF by Bullet Train?

Monday, November 17th, 2008

After getting off of California’s new bullet train in San Francisco, how are you going to get from the CalTrain Station at 4th and King Streets up to the Financial District or the TransBay Terminal or someplace you actually want to get to?

Well, maybe a jitney bus is in your future. They say it’s faster than MUNI.

Anyway, read all about it:

Derailed: California bullet-train champion Quentin Kopp had his fellow Proposition 1A supporters choking on their election night Champagne with his pronouncement that the current Caltrain station at Fourth and Townsend would make a fine high-speed rail station – and that San Francisco’s plan for a Grand Central Station-style downtown hub was a waste of time and money.

“I am not going to pay $2.5 billion to move a track 1.4 miles,” said Kopp, the former San Francisco supervisor, state senator and retired judge who now chairs the California High Speed Rail Authority.

Or maybe you can walk?
