I've read Sam Walton's book, and I've read about  Andrew Carnegie being an orphan, and coming from nothing, he built an empire and left it all to charity when he died. I have respect for both of these men. They've given more money to worthy causes than most people realize.

But the Kennedys made their fortune by running illegal whiskey. I know that whiskey is legal now.
But I suppose that someday when the government makes pot legal, some people will give the drug cartels and drug dealers the respect that they think they deserve. Not me.

If you  expect any kennedy to adhere to the laws specifically the banking laws, the stock market, and of course don't you dare look under the table to see what is being  laundered under there for free political presents, you can live with them.  The Clintons were taught by the  kennedys in  their political dealings so it is ditto for them also.
