On the news today, the Jackson's attorney said that the family was wanting the event to be "low-key & not over-hyped, to show respect"!
I wish they would hurry up and put him in the ground. Sorry to seem rough, but this guy..... was just a guy. There are far too many more impoortant things going on in the world and America right now. He also was eccentric and non conventional in every sense of the word. Yet Al Sharpton says there was nothing strange about Michael Jackson, but there were few things he did that weren't strange. Tired of the media's hypocrisy. For years, MJ was nothing but a curiosity and weirdo to them. "Let's see what the weirdo is doing to get on tv this week" kind of thing. Now, they are all going on about how he changed history as we know it, and speaking as if they always loved him. I call this band wagon jumping myself. Its ridiculous. The country needs to move on. We have troops getting shot at in Afghanistan right now (my nephew, Marine, among them), the President is under the impression that if he throws enough money (ours!) at a problem, it will go away, North Korea wants us dead, the economy is in the toilet, and 6.5 million jobs have been lost since January in the US alone. Michael Jackson dying, while understandably upsetting to his fans, is just not the big deal they are making it out to be. People die. That's the thing about life...no one gets out alive.
"It is pretty bad when I go and fight a tyrannical government somewhere else," Congine said, "and then I come home to find it right here at my front door."Umm, if I saw some dude flying the flag upside down, I'd be pis*** too, that is disrespectful to the American flag.
