You know what twitter needs? Another account live tweeting the JFK assassination as it happened 50 years ago.

ABC News says it will "live-blog the assassination of JFK as it unfolded."

The Canadian Press is "live tweeting" the JFK assassination in real time, and it's kind of disturbing to experience. https://twitter.com/CdnPress

Anyone else find all this "live" tweeting of JFK assassination just a little bit creepy?

@ktumulty More than a little.

@ktumulty  Yes. Can't read or watch. Reduces the assassination to "sound bites; "live tweeting." Feel it's disrespectful.

It's kind of eerie that they are "live tweeting" as if JFK is actually being shot today.

The biggest difference would be 50 years of hindsight, historical revision, and lies.  These are leftists, after all. :nono:
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

I posted about my feelings on the Kennedy brouhaha on another forum. I didn't realize so many others feel like I do.  I switched from Fox to the Movie Channel. Kennedys 24/7 are not only tiring, but boring, with a lot of bs thrown in between.

Apparently our car is a new model TARDIS. Go out for a drive, come back, and my twitter is stuck in 1963.

Yes, it was a significant event. The coverage is a bit excessive.
