JFK Sunday: Hicks Had it Right

"Bill Hicks and the JFK Assassination

Here is Hicks on stage talking about the JFK ass'n:

I love this quote from the late great Bill Hicks:
no matter what promises you make on the campaign trail - blah, blah, blah - when you win, you go into this smoky room with the twelve industrialist, capitalist scumfucks that got you in there, and this little screen comes down... and it's a shot of the Kennedy assassination from an angle you've never seen before, which looks suspiciously off the grassy knoll.... And then the screen comes up, the lights come on, and they say to the new president, 'Any questions?'

"Just what my agenda is."

What I wonder is if Hicks means that the "scumfucks" are showing a clear version of Greer, the secret service agent/limo driver, shooting JFK.

What else would so clearly prove who is in charge?

Did Hicks think that Greer shot JFK?

At an ATS board where they discussed the Greer theory, someone wrote:
I haven't seen those frames. I do recall that Bill Hicks used to claim on stage that it was his belief that it was the driver who shot JFK. He is the only other person I have heard propose that theory.
(obviously this person had never heard Bill Cooper)

(Oddly, note the very first reply to the ATS post: "No serious student or researcher of the JFK assassination for the last 40 years has ever subscribed to this lunatic theory." Sound familiar???? Someone with an odd username: "starviego")

Assuming Bill Hicks did advocate the idea that Greer shot JFK, it is interesting to note he died at a very young age, 32, of pancreatic cancer.

The American Cancer society says that "The risk of developing cancer of the pancreas increases with age. Almost all patients are older than 45 years. Nearly 90% are older than 55 years and more than 70% are older than 65. The average age at the time of diagnosis is 72."

So for Hicks to develop pancreatic cancer at 32 is very unusual indeed. Yes, he was a heavy drug user too. But there is no correlation with pancreatic cancer and recreational drug use, at least that is noted by the ACS.

Interestingly, I was just dong unrelated reading last night and read how MI6 killed people by putting radiation plates in their bed and giving them cancer.

Here are some good quotes from Hicks.
