    Angry WTF! House holds moment of silence for MJ

    The House of Representatives held a moment of silence Friday morning to mark the passing of legendary singer Michael Jackson.

    "His heart couldn't get any bigger, and yesterday, it arrested," said Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. "I come to the floor today on behalf of a generation to thank God for letting all of us live in his generation and in his era."


    From cnn.com, they have a video link of it

    He who makes the rules, has the power.
    He who has the power, has the money.

    You're surprised? These are the same idiots that just days ago "officially apologized" for slavery.

    Yeah, I heard that happened. Sounds like Junior is following in his fathers footsteps for doing "media look at me" shit.

    You know, I 'll have to agree with you on that. I have some African-American friends and co-workers that are sick and tired of the slavery issue that members of their own race seem to want to bring up all the time. They tell me that slavery as it pertains to them ended over 150 years ago, the time is now and it is time for people to start making something of themselves and to quit crying over something that happened to their ancestors. "The Man" isn't keeping them down, they themselves are. (fist bump, you feel me )

    Mind you I live in a conservative part of CA. It might be different else where.

    As fer as human trafficking and white slavery goes, I sure wish we could, but not holding my breath.

    You're looking at this all wrong, son. Wrong I say! [/foghorn leghorn]

    Instead of a moment they should have dedicated their complete attention to MJ just as the media has done.
    Had the House followed that course they wouldn't have had time to vote in favor of Cap and Trade.

    Let me know when the autopsy results are in on the Fourth Estate.

    Ya know, they idolize a wacko who slept with little boys (who ain't his) but chastize a Governor who sleeps with a women (who he ain't married to). Strange. Both ain't kosher, but whats worst?

    Are you fekkin' serious???? You don't know that taking advantage of children is horribly different than two consenting adults having sex? While adultery is obviously frowned upon, it certainly is not as sick as an adult having sexual contact with a child. Or several children....

    Freakin' ridiculous. It pisses me off that all these people are coming out and saying what a great guy he was. Sure, his music was good, but as a person, his mama should have let him be a stain.

    Are they going to have a moment of silence for Billy Mays? The one who helped us all discover our mute buttons for commercials.
    There’s a promise I need you to make
    While I’m gone you take care of the love
    And I’ll deal with the hate.

    Don’t worry about me; I’ll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    I’ll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    I think your what he was saying, Slaughter. They're chastising someone who had consensual relations, but giving a moment of silence to a pedophile with fame. Kinda backwards, but us commoners are the only ones who seem to realize it.
