Political aftermath of JFK assassination
By Arthur Kane Scott: 
On November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy, with his wife Jackie, was fired upon at Dealey Plaza. The young President was pronounced dead at 1:30 pm, Central Standard Time, at Parkland Hospital, Dallas. While the nation was in deep shock, Lyndon Banes Johnson was sworn in as the 36th President.

By the election of 2012, Corporate America, intelligence agencies, the military-industrial complex, Wall Street/Banking Industry, Religious Right and their sibling money had become the masters of the country where the one percent dominate, and economic fairness/equity banished from the dialogue.
