Both wanted money that is different than what we have now. Lincoln with Greenbacks (no interest to bring into existence) and Kennedy With Exec order 11110

I'd be surprised if these guys were know by 3 names before "taking their shot" at fame. The press tends to do that with criminals

Well Lincoln died before Dukes was invented.

If JFK had of been in a sub shop enjoying a BLT with Dukes mayo instead of the back of that Lincoln he would not have been shot.

It predates that. This kind of random coincidence stuff used to be forwarded in chain letters and then chain Faxes.

Correct. I remember seeing this in a mimeographed chain letter I received when I was in Sister Phyllis' class in 2nd grade class. So it existed at least as far back as 1977.

Al Gore notwithstanding, the world wide web came to be circa 1986, credited to Tim Berners-Lee IIRC. The "internet" has been around since the days of DARPA, but the internet and the world wide web are 2 different things, despite the terms being used synonymously.

Lincoln was the worst president in US history, closely followed by Wilson, FDR and Obamma...

It is note worthy to point out that you mention Lincoln, WW and FDR. All were presidents during war years. I am not a student of WW and FDR but I will say that I feel Lincoln tried his best with what he had. Remember, it was an entirely different time. I know you don’t agree; just my opinion.
I do agree with your assessment of the other guy, OB.

Lincoln committed mass genocide and destroyed the Republic! An objective look at the facts shows this clearly. The problem is nobody reads objective facts and history. Everyone accepts the garbage from FedEd and thinks its true. FedEd is sophistry but when everyone believes it then it must be true...
