    Presidential Curse?

    It is very little known the "Indian's Revenge" was started in 1811 laid by the Shawnee chieftain, Tecumseh, or possibly his brother Tenskwatawa, in revenge for his military defeat by future president William Henry Harrison.

    Since then ,every US president elected in a year ending in a '0' at twenty year intervals would die before his term in office is finished.

    William Harrison ,elected in 1840 and died April 4, 1841. Pneumonia
    Abraham Lincoln ,elected in 1860 and died April 15, 1865. Assassinated
    James Garfield ,elected in 1880 and died July 2, 1881. Assassinated
    William McKinley ,elected in 1900 and died September 19, 1901. Assassinated
    Warren Harding ,elected in 1920 and died August 2, 1923. Food poisoning
    Franklin Roosevelt ,elected in 1940 and died April 12, 1945. Stroke, medical records missing
    John Kennedy ,elected in 1960 and died November 22, 1963. Assassinated
    Ronald Reagan ,elected in 1980 Survived: March 30, 1981. Assassination attempt
    (Keep in mind the Regans were also into astrology and maybe thats what saved him???)

    Whose next?

    As you know in the 2000 elections Florida had a recount of votes.
    Maybe it was deliberate, so that George W Bush would only begin his term in 2001 instead of 2000. To avoid the curse???

    Maybe it doesn't work anymore since two presidents had escaped it.We have to wait another twenty years to see...

        All presidents begin their term the year after they're elected. Algore's recounts had nothing to do with it/

                      Freddy is a fucking moron.
                      And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

                          I always thought this one was more interesting.......
                          Abraham Lincoln was elected to the House of Representatives in 1846; John Kennedy, 1946. Lincoln failed to win the vice presidential nomination in 1856, Kennedy in 1956. The republican conventions of 1860 and 1960 were held in Chicago. Mr. Lincoln was elected to the presidency in 1860, John Kennedy in 1960. Lincoln defeated Stephen Douglas, born in 1813; Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon born in 1913. John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of President Lincoln, was born in 1839, Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of President Kennedy in 1939.

                          Both presidents had vice presidents named Johnson. Andrew Johnson served in the House of Representatives in 1847, Lyndon Johnson, 1947. In 1860 and 1960 both VP's were serving as Senators. Andrew Johnson was older than Lincoln and was born in 1808, Lyndon Johnson, born in 1908, was older than Kennedy. Even though Lincoln was a republican, both vice presidents were democrats. Andrew Johnson was defeated for re-election, Lyndon Johnson elected not to run for a second complete term. Andrew Johnson died of a stroke; Lyndon Johnson a heart attack.


                          OTHER SIMILARITIES

                          Both presidents won their respective elections with less than fifty-percent of the popular vote.
                          Each was concerned with the issue of civil rights.
                          Both presidents while in their thirties, married women in their early twenties.
                          Both wives suffered the death of a child while in the White House.
                          Lincoln and Kennedy repeatedly spoke of, and had dreams regarding, assassination attempts.
                          Each was subsequently warned by advisors not to attend the events that led to their death.
                          Lincoln and Kennedy were shot from behind, in the head.
                          They were killed on a Friday, and in the presence of their wives.
                          The assassins, Booth and Oswald, were southerners who favored unpopular ideas.
                          Booth shot Lincoln in a theater and was captured in a barn, a warehouse. Oswald allegedly shot Kennedy from a warehouse, the depository, and was arrested at a theater.
                          Lincoln was killed in Ford's Theater, Kennedy was killed in a Ford automobile; a Lincoln.
                          Both Booth and Oswald were killed before going to trail. The popular belief is that the two presidential tragedies were conspiracies with subsequent governmental cover up.
                          The names Lincoln and Kennedy contain seven letters.
                          The names Stephen and Richard, their political opponents have seven letters each.
                          The name Johnson contains seven letters.
                          The fathers of the presidents, Thomas and Joseph respectively, each have six letters.
                          The names Andrew Johnson and Lyndon Johnson each contain 13 letters, as do the names of their wives, Eliza McCardle and Claudia Taylor.
                          The names John Wilkes booth and Lee Harvey Oswald both total 15 letters.
