Took him long enough. Oh wait, Armstrong wasn’t a crackhead, no wonder it took so long for HUSSEIN to make up his mind.

Oh my, check out the REAL title:

Obama orders flags at half-staff for Neil Armstrong

So you must be the editor, huh? You can change any title you like?

I say you're trying to spin things. As if reality wasn't quite good enough.

So why make up a fake title?

He wastes no time lowering the flag for theater or Sikh temple shootings.

It’s set for Friday because Mr Armstrong’s funeral is Friday. And it’s all day, not after the funeral. I hate that sumbeech too, but he is following the normal dictums of of observation.

This is an appropriate honor for a great American.

The fact that Obama has ordered the flag lowered for days at a time for mass shootings does not change that fact.

Really? You attributed it thusly:

USA Today | 8/27/12 | David Jackson, USA

So you are David Jackson? No? Then you are ripping off his stuff.

I can link to it any way I like.

Sure. But when you mis-attribute it or re-title it, you screw up royally.

It isn't your work, you don't get to write the title.

Now go cry, Emo kid.

No thanks. I prefer to toss in your face, since it's you who did it.

No thanks. You messed up, you lied, you failed and you deserve the credit.

Suck it up. Enjoy the taste.

Be honest next time.

Thank you. I had the right names, but in the wrong order.

Of course, in my mind, they aren’t old men. I will always remember them they way they looked when they triumphantly returned.

Thanks for posting those. A life, indeed. I saw him with all the other living Apollo astronauts in Oshkosh in 1994 for a 25th anniversary thing.

What I remember most was one of the astronauts up on stage reminicing, the sun had gone down, and a Concord took off in full afterburner right behind us, quite a sight.

Everyone turned and looked, and the astronaut said “Everyone stand up and take a look...we are looking up here too!”

I loved it. It said everything about those men, and all of it good.

Obama does not even have the dignity to let the Armstrong Family have a State Funeral.

True.

But it still clearly demonstrates what an absolute screeching P.O.S. little bammy really is.

Now, excuse me for a moment while I say off-camera what I REALLY think about the poofter-In-Chief...

Can you determine another reason for altering the title?

The individual has a "list" he likes to pimp.

I don't use such tactics to scam hits so I can't
tell you how the individual profits from this theft.

Nachum.. explain the business model of your article theft scam.

Dear humblegunner,

My list is dead. The Obama machine killed it. The site was hacked and will likely come down in its entirety after the election. If you log onto the site, Google now lists it as “an attack” site. :) -I guess it is, in a way.

As for profit, the site has never made one. Not much of a business model.

I posted this and left no link to my site, nor to my ping list and only was trying to show that Obama’s belated offering of this hero’s rememberance came only after he carefully put his wet finger to the wind and figured it would be prudent to do so.

I know full well that the promotion of the site rankles some. Apparently it rankles you.

I don’t think BO was living in America during the hey days of NASA that we American children all grew up glued to the missions as seen on TV. He was living the Muslim life in Indonesia. This is why he doesn’t get the American way.

Thank You for posting this, Nachum.

Neil Armstrong was my HERO and deserved the honor of a Half-Mast Flag immediately upon the knowledge of his passing.

He did AT LEAST as much for America as Whitney Houston did./sarc.

(BTW, I am a Voice Teacher, and appreciated Whitney, but she was definitely NOT “half-mast-material”.)

Friday night was a Blue Moon, a greater tribute to Neil Armstrong than anything our Feckless Leader could manage and done by a celestial body that has had no one on it until he took that step and planted that Flag.



That flag still flies higher than any other so go ahead and lower the flags here to half staff in a meaningless gesture, Mr Presentdent.

We will remember Commander Armstrong long after you are gone.

Considering that the post you responded to was made last Monday...

I've already gone away. Until you called me back.

Kind of ate-up, ain't you?
