RFK Jr.ís wife hangs herself
NYPost ^ | 05/17/2012 | Celona, Smith, and Soltis

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s estranged wife, Mary, who battled her husband’s rumored philandering by turning to alcohol and prescription drugs, hanged herself in a barn on their Westchester estate yesterday, sources told The Post.

The 52-year-old mother of four — the latest victim of a family dynasty cursed with tragedies — may have taken her own life because she was haunted by her broken marriage, her friends lamented.

“She was deeply troubled, abusing alcohol and prescription meds,” a close family friend said. “She had cause. She was used up and tossed away by Bobby. That was awful.”

Marrying into the Kennedys has consequences...

Usually, to men that are part of rich and powerful families, women are simply considered accessories. Whether it be the wife or the harlots.

And the Kennedys exemplify it.

“I doubt the younger generation would have the brains to pull off a murder and make it look like suicide. They also don’t have the ambition.”

Hussein has really crappy ambitious forgers working for him who don’t even care if their work passes muster because they’ve got Big Media covering for them every step of the way.

According to reports, she had severe financial problems, American Express was suing her for unpaid bills. She told a friend she was going to lose the house, she was facing a custody battle, and hubby was threatening to reduce financial support. Nice guy.

I didn’t think money was a problem for these people. Seems that women who get involved with dirt bag Kennedy men end up dead or drunk.

Another Kennedy that won’t be getting into Heaven.

Romans 8:38-39 (NIV) 38: For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39: neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

You’re right the Kennedy use the poor to strengthen their own power, the same way that Obama used the Blacks as a political organizing tool to get elected.

The Kennedy family has been very hard on their women. in that made for tv movie that HBO did on the Kennedy family, they have Jackie saying that her mother warned her that Joe Kennedy raised his boys to see what they wanted and take it, including women. They never held back and it just never ended, they are still doing that, taking, never giving.

“Mary said she was facing financial ruin, with American Express coming after her hard for an outstanding debt, along with several other creditors. In addition, she was concerned that Robert was about to substantially reduce the amount of financial support he gave her and she was terrified she would have to file for bankruptcy and lose her home.”

Yet, she was found by the housekeeper. Perhaps, she should have cleaned her own house if she couldn’t pay her bills. She sounds like a spoiled, selfish woman to me. I feel so sorry for her children.

“I remember being seated at a dinner next to Bobby around 10 years ago that she was also at — it was the first time I had met either of them — and he put his hand on my thigh under the table. We hadn’t even spoken but to say hello. He is such a dog that way.”

You have to wonder why any woman would marry a Kennedy.

How would a Kennedy face money problems, when that family is so wealthy?

I don’t have details, but I understood that old Joe Kennedy had set up trust funds worth many millions, which flowed down through the generations. RFK Jr. did not have any worries about how to pay his bills, or pay for his drugs, for that matter. So why would his estranged wife have money problems? Some things don’t add up.

Heck, the reason RFK Jr. can get on TV and lecture us about global warming and other liberal causes is because he doesn’t have to work for a living.

She should have been drinking to *celebrate* breaking up with that phony scumbag.

Yeah, but apparently, she was only a kid when she first came under the Kennedy spell. She met Robert Kennedy through his younger sister, while at boarding school. Men like Robert Kennedy have a particular affinity for YOUNG girls, who are too young and stupid to understand that there is nothing personal in the passes that the men make at them. It’s just part of their style.

I know because I’ve seen it happen, not with anyone as grand as a Kennedy, but with the same privileged mind set. Men like a Kennedy never see a woman that they don’t try to seduce, the young are just more susceptible.

I guess she didn’t think the monthly support check and hefty divorce settlement provided by RFK Jr. was gonna be enough to sustain her privileged lifestyle.

According to the article, she was an advocate for the same environmental causes as her husband.

Regarding her marital status at the time of her death, Mary Kennedy wasn’t divorced from Robert F. Kennedy Jr., her family attorney, Kerry A. Lawrence, told CNN.

Mary Richardson Kennedy was “a tremendously gifted architect and a pioneer and relentless advocate of green design who enhanced her cutting edge, energy efficient creations with exquisite taste and style,” Robert F. Kennedy’s family said in a statement.

She advocated finding a cure for food allergies and asthma and was a co-founder of the Food Allergy Initiative, which is the world’s largest private source of funding for food allergy research, Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s family said.

“It is with deep sadness that the family of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. mourns the loss of Mary Richardson Kennedy, wife and mother of their four beloved children. Mary inspired our family with her kindness, her love, her gentle soul and generous spirit,” the husband’s family’s statement said.

The couple married in civil ceremony in 1994 when Mary Richardson, a designer, was six months pregnant, according to the Westchester County Journal News. One month prior to the wedding, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. divorced his first wife, Emily Black, the mother of his two oldest children, the newspaper reported.

http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/16/us/mary-kennedy-dead/index.html

Details of the couple’s private lives were exposed after Robert F. Kennedy Jr. filed for divorce in Westchester County on May 12, 2010.

The next evening, according to police records, Bedford police responded to a 911 call. When police arrived at the Kennedy residence they found the couple in an argument over taking their four children to a carnival at St. Patrick’s School.

According to a “domestic incident” report filed by the officer on the scene, “Mr. Kennedy stated that his wife was intoxicated and was acting irrational so he took the children to the carnival to remove them from the situation.”

As a designer, Mary Kennedy specialized in green architecture, and in a book entitled “Kennedy Green House” and co-authored by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., he describes how he and his wife restored their flooded, black-mold-infested home into an eco-friendly residence.

In the book, her husband wrote that Mary Kennedy had worked for the design firm Parish-Hadley and worked on the renovation of the Naval Observatory in Washington, the official residence of the U.S. vice president.

“The Kennedys seem to kick all their women to the curb.”

It all started with Rosemary. She showed signs of rebellion (not retardation) so Old Joe & Rose had her lobotomized and stashed away in a nunnery for the last six decades of her life.

Kennedy women are like PT boats: “They were expendable”.

RFK Jr.’s wife hangs herself

Recently reviewed a paper on the Forensics of Suicide.
It claims there are three reasons for suicide:

Guilt, Escape or Revenge.

The style of this suicide seems to be Revenge

I remember when that worthless POS RFK Jr. divorced his first wife of about 13 years and 3 kids. He then had the gall to bribe the Catholic church into an annulment so he could marry number 2 in the catholic church. So now his first 3 kids are illegitimate. If I were them I would never speak to the lowlife again. Too bad he can’t seem to put a rope around his neck.

Narcissists:
  • An obvious self-focus in interpersonal exchanges
  • Problems in sustaining satisfying relationships
  • A lack of psychological awareness (see insight in psychology and psychiatry, egosyntonic)
  • Difficulty with empathy
  • Problems distinguishing the self from others (see narcissism and boundaries)
  • Hypersensitivity to any insults or imagined insults (see criticism and narcissists, narcissistic rage and narcissistic injury)
  • Vulnerability to shame rather than guilt
  • Haughty body language
  • Flattery towards people who admire and affirm them (narcissistic supply)
  • Detesting those who do not admire them (narcissistic abuse)
  • Using other people without considering the cost of doing so
  • Pretending to be more important than they really are
  • Bragging (subtly but persistently) and exaggerating their achievements
  • Claiming to be an "expert" at many things
  • Inability to view the world from the perspective of other people
  • Denial of remorse and gratitude
