Whenever someone in the public spotlight dies tragically why do some on the left assume it was a murder?

Take for instance the DC Madam. And now some guy on this site is saying JFK, Jr. was murdered! He just was not qualified to fly the plane he was flying at night.

    This is due to life, from THEIR (most liberals') perspectives, being SO much like a TV murder mystery! These loons LOVE watching murder mysteries on TV and they figure the SAME applies to REAL life!

    Oh! JFK, Jr. was NOT qualified to fly that plane in instrument-only (IFR) conditions! He, mistakenly, figured that since he had his license to fly VFR already that he could fly the plane when this situation, flying IFR, presented itself. He flew into a situation where he needed to be instrument-rated when he DIDN'T have the rating, yet. Night time, by default, is an IFR condition. Sure, you may be able to see some lights on the ground, but those lights don't exist EVERYWHERE.

    When it gets dark over the ocean, you lose all your exterior references that help you to keep the plane level in VFR. Then, when IFR sets in, only the instruments can give you ANY certainty as to what you need to do to keep the plane flying. He hadn't learned ANYTHING about utilizing the needle, ball, and airspeed to keep the plane in-the-air.

    It is THESE three indicators you use to keep your plane in-the-air when you lose all your ability to see outside the aircraft(exterior references).

    To become instrument-rated a hood gets placed over your head that keeps you from seeing outside the plane, and the instructor in the seat next to you tells you to fly by the instruments only. The hood can make you look like Darth Vader! *wink*

    "Use the Force, Luke!"

    The issue with flying on instruments only is that it can be disconcerting to the uninitiated (the unrated or untrained) because you have to learn to IGNORE what your body is telling you and ACCEPT what the instruments are telling you carte blanche.

    Usually, this leads to the loss of the plane and everyone on-board due to there being a conflict between the untrained pilot and the plane, and the pilot not being able to divorce himself from what his brain is telling him and to embrace what the instuments are telling him.

    The person who NEEDS to be investigated is the owner of the plane! No right-minded owner of a plane like this is going to rent it to someone who only possesses a VFR rating at THAT particular time of-the-day! You MAY want to look at Hillary's financial records to see if someone got PAID to replace that aircraft subsequent to the incident.

    Was he murdered? No. It was his own Kennedy pride that lead to his death. When you want to kill someone who lived a lifestyle like JFK, Jr. did, you usually get OUT of his way and let him do it for you! No fingerprints!

    The fingerprints may be there still, but you're going to need to look REALLY closely to see them!

    My suspicion is that Mrs. Clinton is WISHING that Obama lived a lifestyle similar to that of JFK Jr's. *laughter*

    Why do you assume its not murder? Its the same mental gymnastics involved, they just distrust the government where you trust them at face value.

    With the DC Madam, you have to realize that she could've released a lot of names and this is an election year....yes its one hell of a coincedence, but I don't think its much more than that.

    You also have to realize that 'some on the left' also understand that democrats would've been named too. So its not really a partisan bias, its more like I said in the beginning....they automatically distrust the government and need to be shown proof they are being honest. You automatically trust the government (on this event) and would need to be shown proof they are lying.

    As with most cases, nobody will ever know for certain what took place.

    People on the right have been calling the deaths of Vince Foster and Ron Brown murders for years. You make it seem like only people on the left jump to conclusions.

    Liberals are prone to self-delusion, so they readily buy into whatever conspiracy theory seems to be the flavor of the week. When you don't believe in personal responsibility, it's easy to blame somebody else for almost anything that happens.

    You mean Vince Foster wasn't a political murder? He did have a bullet to the BACK of his head which they ruled suicide. Oops, I'm not a lefty. Sorry, my bad.

    People find it interesting to speculate on such things. But don't forget some on the right thought Hillary killed Vince Foster. Let up just say that as long as they don't hurt anyone, it is relatively harmless.

    There are quite a few on the right who belive in conspiracies too.

    They say the Clintons had killed a bunch of people.

    See also the John Birch society.

    Because it's impossible to believe that things happen to people, sometimes because it was bad decision making and/or actions by these "heros".

    ...hence "the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy"..

  • Because most of have a guilty conscience for all the rotten things they have done to people.

    Some times the truth is too simple, people would rather cling to irrational lies.
