Wandering Truth

Here are some interesting facts and from interesting stories worth reading

given at the links added.

It’s amazing how much we do not know.

Every US President with a beard, was a Republican

President Franklin Pierce was arrested for running

over a woman with a horse.

The charges were later dropped.

George Washington grew marijuana in his garden. It was legal back then.

It shows how the good of a Constitution is abusedor misinterpreted by what is not so good.

1789 total US government debt was 190,000.00

J Edgar Hoover liked FBI Agents with sweaty palms.

He did not believe in polygraph tests which measured guilt by sweaty palms,

because of a case he had.

Jimmy Carter was the first US President to be born in a hospital.

John F Kennedy was buried without a brain. It was lost during the autopsy. hmmmm.

John F Kennedy was the first Roman Catholic President.

No US President was an only child.

Andrew Jacksons tombstone doesn’t say he was a President.

Beautiful story as to why.

President G.W. Bush was Hugh Hefners cousin.

Those sure were interesting! Thanks, friend. My daughter is an only child. I wonder if she will be president. She has no beard, so I know she is not a Republican!

lol the links are interesting.
Sandy. I don't know why anybody would want to get into politics today.When the country was new people were interested in the country itself and the people. Today????? Who knows why people run.
Granted it is an interesting life but very difficult.

I didn't think there was enough of JFK's brain left to autopsy.

There were three bullets and there seems to be a discrepancy about which rifle was used and bullets.One went into the neck and one through the side of the head.His wife held his brain in his head all the way to the hospital and he was barely alive when he got there, but he was.
There were a lot of people, organizations unhappy with him so finger pointing went in all directions.Castro- who Kennedy wanted Dead but then decided against it,Mafia, which helped elect him and Robert K was shutting down,CIA,Industrialists like LBJ and his wife who invested in the war industry when Kennedy wanted no Vietnam. Many people suddenly died so there were no witnesses. Also autopsy papers had different blood types. Kennedy was O in the army and AB at the autopsy.They wouldn't allow an instate autopsy which is the law and no one knows if it was Kennedy's body sent back to Washington.Robert Kennedy did a funny thing as well. He took the autopsy reports and his brothers brain , put it into a casket and threw it into the Atlantic Ocean so there would be no evidence of what was found.
And Jacqueline Kennedy shut all possibilites of disclosure until it wouldn't matter anymore.
so we will never know the true story and are left with a lot of questions.
