The long list - Lincoln vs Kennedy parallels!
« on: September 13, 2014, 07:39:56 PM »
Most folks who've read the short list of strange synchros/parallels comparing President Abraham Lincoln to President John F. Kennedy, may not have seen the long list.
Here it is and maybe the short list is a topic in the Paranormal Discussion Board 2.0.
The connections continue with the many amazing parallels in life and death of two martyred United States presidents. The short listing is on many paranormal web sites. So it's rather an old well worn legend. This is the longer list of spooky parallels by far!
Note: The Internet's home for urban legends, Daily Snopes, takes the short list to task and explains each line in their sweat drenched investigation.
The Ode to President Lincoln
Johnny Horton's "Young Abe Lincoln - make a tall tall man"
The Ode to President Kennedy
Jimmy Dean's "PT 109"

This is the largest listing I've ever found on the Internet. Would you believe there is more not included? One usual risque line is omitted above here but it's included in a few lists much shorter........here it is now.
Two weeks before Lincoln was killed he was in Monroe, Maryland. Two weeks before Kennedy was killed he was in Marilyn Monroe.
Marilyn died in 1962 and JFK was killed in 1963.
This long version came from The Classic Rock Experience's web site. Once again no author has ever been given credit, that I'm aware of, since I saw the "short list" during the Winter of 1963.
Note: Oswald's Italian war relic Carcano carbine and potentially inconsistent war relic 6.5mm ammo (if it was that) gave me doubts about him at age 16. I'm 66 and since I owned one exactly like it, bought from Klein's Sporting Goods at age 13, I'm sure he was some sort of patsy.
I had a rifle like it in my hands just yesterday priced at $165 US dollars. Mine cost me $15 and the one in the Smithsonian Institution cost $24.50? with a scope. I did not know the Washington DC federal museum collected junk! I saw the rifle there in 1966, yep junk!
The old late 30s and early 40s ammo I owned went like this, click............bang!! Or bang with a huge kick! Or just click and no bang!
The investigators NEVER talked about the rifle shells. How new were they? Who made the rounds? Were year of manufacture dates stamped on the shell casing ends? How many total shells did he have? Did he have a bag of empty shells at home? How many practice rounds were left over at home? Did they try to fire them to see how dependable they were? All are questions never asked!
Edited on the day of posting this version. I read that WESTERN ammo from Winchester was used by the patsy Oswald. Maybe he fired 3 bullets at a rural location with the empty casings then placed near the window.
If you were going to donate a rifle to this plan. One would go to Guns and Ammo Magazine, just like I did, and turn one page for some of the cheapest mail-order guns in the nation at Kliens Sporting Goods, Chicago, Illinois!
One could say the fans of the legendary actress Marilyn Monroe were not saddened at loosing either of the two Kennedy brothers. Rich Playboys like that should have chased Bunnies!
Tonight's Coast to Coast AM, with host Dave Schrader, will be talking about suspicious suicides in history and Marilyn Monroe is on the list. I think she was murdered for knowing too much about the dark side of D.C.
Now it's time to tune into Speaking of Strange!
