     Some people believe in God because without God they can't make sense of their existence.  This is why a simple explanation works for most people.   They use it like Faith.  There may be good reasons to believe in God, but I see none for believing the explanation given by the Warren Commission.  When men are this devious and rabid you can't make sense of them, it's like contemplating the idea of evil.   Trusting them then becomes the foundation for trusting evil and the mind blanks out.  It's a sad example of brilliant crime and twisted minds.

None of that makes any sense. Let’s track this:

There’s no existential reason to believe the WC > commissioners (?) acted incomprehensibly > this is like evil > trusting them is to trust evil.

Huh. And you’re accusing other people of illogic and utterly bizarre gibberish.

Please cognitively review things you think are deep and meaningful before producing another… thing like this.

Nothing 'clever' about it.

     Playing to an audience that is half-articulate with a gyrational upload of the arguments you want them to happily affect in weighing in on your cred may come over as douchbaggery to the learned but it's clever.

In English please

Idiom dictionary:  Playing to a (crowd):  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Half-articulate:  eager student legitimately requesting clarification


gyrational:  pomposity, to box shadows, much ado
affect:   adoption of stylized learning to show one's currency on the market

douchbaggery, difficult to translate, to pose as in weighty learning while backed by the truncheon or mob rule

learned:  the ability to study and discern reality thereby

clever:  what he did

The purpose of language is to convey meaning to others. Keep it simple is my advice. Plain English all the way.

    One of the bullets was named a magic bullet for a bizarre trajectory emerging pristine after supposedly smashing bones and littering the wrist of the Governor with fragments that clearly did not come from the bullet exhibited.   The second magic bullet hit Kennedy in the back of head and drove his head backwards???   Magic.  We're in Disneyland after dark.   With a stretch of the imagination you could have a third magic bullet, the one fired at the man who hated Kennedy most, Gen. Walker, by the man they say killed the object of his obsession.   Wild, dude.  Makes sense.  All those magic bullets flying around, what with Walker being missed, evidence disappearing, theories made legend from on high, must have been the Magical Wizard of Oz.   Walker just dusted his sleeves, myuh, honey he forgot to duck, back to the drawing board at Pentagon Disney.

Pristine? You need to do some research.

Curious to see what LNers think about the missed bullet, the Tague hit, and the relationship between the two (e.g., headshot fragment resulting in Tague hit).
What shooter scenario do my fellow LNers think is most likely?

For some, personal incredulity seems to be the deciding factor when it comes to this question.

Absolutely. McCloy mentioned that aspect in the video. One could mention the closely-related 'appeal to personal* ignorance' logical fallacy as well.


*As you know, I'm not calling anyone ignorant.
Let's see the CTers figure that one out haha

McCloy and Dulles had similar backgrounds and points of view.  Dulles was the leader of the WC and could count on McCloy to not only come around to his Oswald Theory, but McCloy would convince others on the WC to forget all of their objections and to go along too. As you will read in the link and maybe pick up in this film, he was a very devious man, and quite capable of deceiving the nation.  I don't think I've ever been more ashamed of Walter Cronkite, but I must forgive him as he was most likely a star of Operation Mockingbird.  The CIA probably had him in their pocket.
