- He formed alliances with crime bosses in major markets, among them Boston, New York, Chicago, and New Orleans. These would come in handy years later when his son was running for national office. Among his mob associates was Frank Costello, former boss of the Luciano crime family, who bragged, "I helped Joe Kennedy get rich." Sam Giancana, who would later figure prominently in Jack's presidency, called Joe "one of the biggest crooks who ever lived."
Teddy is only continuing the rum-running of his father.
Except he runs his rum in his liver and his belly.
Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy's father, the former Mayor of Boston, John Fitzgerald, did not like Joe Kennedy, thought him to be 'trash'....sent his daughter to Europe to get her away from him....but alas.....she married him anyways...
I've read a lot of books about the Kennedys and the overriding theme in that family is that they are special and the rules that apply to everyone else don't apply to them. A problem with man's law gets fixed with money or political pressure. A problem with God's law gets fixed with a donation and a special dispensation from the Church. They've never quite figured out how to get around the laws of physics, however, so Bobby's son Michael had to pay for playing touch football on the way down a ski slope.
White trash with money.
That's even worse.
1897: September 21 - The CONSTITUTION is moved to the Boston Navy Yard just prior to her 100th birthday. This is brought about in part due to the efforts of Massachusetts Congressman John F. Fitzgerald, grandfather of President John F. Kennedy.
You left off "lobotomized".
I heard they started as bootleggers?
Old Joe (father of Teddy) made his fortune running bootleg from Canada.
I've also heard rank speculation that there was something else going on between Joe and his daughter.
Bible says sins of the father are paid for up to the 4th generation.. Kennedys have a long way to go
I am thinking we will have to suffer these kennedy pigs until we are all forced to learn farsi or die.
White trash with money that thinks it knows better for us than do we.
And it's not inconsistent with what's actually known.
I don't know if I would go along with that assertion and JFK, in comparison to what the dems have today would be much closer to the GOP than the rat party... he belived in lower taxes and I don't believe Clinton, Kerry or Gore would have the guts to stand up the the Soviets like he did... the thing he had in common with the dem party was an inability to make good personal judgements.
