Why does there have to be a conspiracy surrounding JFK?
But I dont' see why people need to obsess over it.

I've never understood why there has to be some conspiracy regarding him. I wasn't around at the time but I would think that maybe some person didn't like what he was doing very much as he was doing some contravorsial things and shot him. But I dont' see why people need to obsess over it. I think people should move on from it. I mean you can still talk about the fact that he got shot-- we talk about other Presidents having gotten shot-- but why does it have to be that there was a conspiracy? Either one man did it or a group of people planned it with him but does it matter now? I don't think the government would do it... maybe some defactor would but I don't think the whole government would be planning it... but I doubt that conspiracies would end if he really was assassinated by someone not affiliated with the government or if James Earl Jones (did I get the name right) did shoot him then I don't see how it's so hard to believe that someone who may have not been a good shot could have pulled it off if they really wanted to. Why isn't there a conspiracy surrounding the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan? Does it have to be a conspiracy theory just because he died?

On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business.
