                         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 .. telling
        us what a "great American" he is.
         
        I say, let's get a couple things clear & not twist the facts to
        change the real history.
         
        ...He was caught cheating at Harvard.
        ...While attending Harvard, he was expelled twice, once for
        cheating on a test,  and once for paying a classmate to cheat
        for him. 
        ...While expelled, Kennedy enlisted in the Army, but mistakenly
        signed up for four years instead of two...great, the man can't
        count to four. 
        ... His father, Joseph P. Kennedy, former U.S. Ambassador to
        England, pulled the necessary 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. 
        ... 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 
        ...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
        neighbourhood with his headlights off after dark. Yet his
        Virginia driver's license was never revoked. 
        ...He passed the bar exam in 1959.  Amazing !! 
        ...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 DUI. 
        The results of those test remained a "state secret" until in
        the 
        1980's when the report was unsealed ...
        ...On the 19th of July 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 ridge, flipped it into
        Poucha Pond. He swam to shore and walked back to the party --
        passing several houses and a fire station -- and 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. 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 favours",
        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 hopes 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" ?
         
        Kennedy has held his Senate seat for more than forty years, but
        considering his longevity, his accomplishments seem scant.  He
        authored or argued for legislation that ensured a variety of
        civil rights, increased the minimum wage in 1981, made access to
        health care easier for the indigent, and funded Meals on Wheels
        for fixed-income seniors and is widely held as the
        "standard-bearer for liberalism". In his very first Senate roll,
        he was the floor manager for the bill that turned U.S.
        immigration policy upside down and opened the floodgate for
        immigrants from third world countries.
         
        Since that time, he has been the prime instigator and author
        of every expansion of and increase in immigration, up to and
        including the latest attempt to grant amnesty to illegal aliens.
         
        Let's not allow the spin doctors make this jerk a hero -- how
        quickly the American public forgets what the real legacy is --
