The old photo to your left is an important one:Chief's Red Cloud and Sitting Bull. (Update: a fellow blogger notified me and corrected the Warrior next to Red Cloud is American Horse. Also see picture of American Horse in full headress at bottom of this blog) I'm a Lakota-Sioux ,born and raised in Central Wyoming on the Arapho/ Shoshone Rez. My wisdom comes from the school of hard knocks,and the paths I choose to take. Along with the advice and stories from my elders, my road has lead me here.

End of Teddy Kennedy Dynasty

Share/Save/Bookmark Quite a legacy!!!> > The Last of The Kennedy Dynasty.> > As soon as cancer was found, I noticed the immediate attempt at > canonization of old Teddy by the main stream media. They are saying > what a "great American" he is. I say, let's get a couple things clear > & not twist the facts to change the real history.> > 1. He was caught cheating at Harvard when he attended it. He was > expelled twice, once for cheating on a test, and once for paying a > classmate to cheat for him.> > 2. While expelled, Kennedy enlisted in the Army, but mistakenly signed > up for four years instead of two. Oops, the man can't count to four.> His father, Joseph P. Kennedy, former U.S. Ambassador to England (a > step up from bootlegging liquor into the U.S. from Canada during > prohibition), pulled the necessar y strings to have his enlistment > shortened to two years, and to ensure that he served in Europe, not > Korea, where a war was raging. No preferential treatment for him like > "he" charged President Bush received.> > > 3. Kennedy was assigned to Paris , never advanced beyond the rank of > Private, and returned to Harvard upon being discharged. Imagine a > person of his "education" NEVER advancing past the rank of Private.> > > 4. While attending law school at the University of Virginia, he was > cited for reckless driving four times, including once when he was > clocked driving 90 miles per hour in a residential neighborhood with > his headlights off after dark. Yet his Virginia driver's license was > never revoked. Coincidentally, he passed the bar exam in 1959, > amazing!!!> > 5. In 1964, he was seriously injured in a plane crash, and > hospitalized for several months. Test results done by the hospital at > the time he was admitted had shown he was legally intoxicated. The > results of those tests remained a "state secret" until in the 1980's > when the report was unsealed. Didn't hear about that from the unbiased > media, did we.> > 6. On July 19, 1969, Kennedy attended a party on Chappaquiddick > Island in Massachusetts . At about 11:00 PM, he borrowed his > chauffeur's keys to his Oldsmobile limousine, and offered to give a > ride home to Mary Jo Kopechne, a campaign worker. Leaving the island > via an unlit bridge with no guard rail, Kennedy steered the car off > the bridge, flipped, and into Poucha Pond.> > 7. He swam to shore and walked back to the party, after passing > several houses and a fire station. Then two friends returned with him > to the scene of the accident. According to their later testimony, they > told him what he already knew, that he was required by law to > immediately report the accident to the authorities. Instead Kennedy > made his way to his hotel, called his lawyer, and went to sleep.> Kennedy called the police the next morning and by then the wreck had > already been discovered. Before dying, Kopechne had scratched at the > upholstered floor above her head in the upside-down car. The Kennedy > family began "calling in favors", ensuring that any inquiry would be > contained. Her corpse was whisked out-of-state to her family, before > an autopsy could be conducted. Further details are uncertain, but > after the accident Kennedy says he repeatedly dove under the water > trying to rescue Kopechne, and he didn't call police because he was in > a state of shock.> It is widely assumed Kennedy was drunk, and he held off calling police > in hope s that his family could fix the problem overnight. Since the > accident, Kennedy's "political enemies" have referred to him as the > distinguished Senator from Chappaquiddick He pled guilty to leaving > the scene of an accident, and was given a SUSPENDED SENTENCE OF TWO > MONTHS. Kopechne's family received a small payout ?from the Kennedy's > insurance policy, and never sued. There was later an effort to have > her body exhumed and autopsied, but her family successfully fought > against this in court, and Kennedy's family paid their attorney's > bills... a "token of friendship"?> > 8.
