Charlie Sheen is 45 and his story is all over the news because he is a substance abuser, an adulterer, sexually promiscuous and obnoxious.

There are preliminary reports that crying out Whitney Houston’s name near a cemetery will raise the dead. It is a verified fact that the sick have been cured, the blind see, the deaf hear, lepers stop rotting when a picture of Houston is touched to the effected parts.

We live in a world that is twisted by the media into fantasy. The average American can tell you who won 'American Idol', and cannot name a single congresscriter or senator.

The American people had better wake up and pull their collective heads out before our freedom is gone.

The liberals and leftists are steeling our nation.

Every time I go to Yahoo , there is Whitney Houston.

I have had about enough Whitney Houston.

She was a fine singer, She destroyed her life with dope, Now she is dead. Nuff said. Piss Poor role Model IMO.

i watched a little bit of this as its been all over the channels here in NY...i listened to the Church’s pastor speak and i thought to myself, “How in God’s name do these people ever consider voting for demoKrats??”

the pastor talked about self-responsibility, the fact God wants all people to prosper, Godliness, respect, hard work...

and I’m thinking these people will probably vote for the same POS they voted for in ‘08, who represents none of that...

"Media," what's that? Is anything lavished on the likes of those people you mentioned, and not lavished on Marines, worth being terribly concerned about?

Can't be worth much.

The only time the media "lavish" attention on our military is when they can cast them in a negative light--like those who peed on corpses. THEN we hear about it non-stop for days.

The media is a whore to the Dems, and a cold-fish to those who value "honor, duty, country."

And, of course, Jessie Jackson was front and almost center through the whole funeral.

I heard some of the whining while trying to find something other than the seemingly non-stop Whitney Houston coverage. The crowds of people complaining because they spent their money buying her CDs and how they lover her too and how they prayed for her and how she’s “their’s.” It was a perfect illustration of just how much complaining and entitlement is entrenched in the urban culture.

——As three limos pulled out of the funeral home with a police escort fans were pushed away and moved up the street behind barricades. According to CBS 2’s Christine Sloan, that’s when tempers started to flare.

-“I’m a taxpayer in the city … born and raised in this city … They should stop treating us like animals. We’re taxpayers … We made this lady who she is today,” resident Floyd Bishop said.-——

Good Lord...have these people no shame at all.....because you are a taxpayer you have a “right” to crash a private funeral .....

Do you wish to see the arrival of the coffins at Dover that the MSM was once so proud to display and all of us here condemned as being a politicization of the wars in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan?

Do you wish to see the families of the fallen soldiers hounded daily by the MSM, with cameras being thrust into their faces and camera crews scattered all around the funeral ceremonies? I don't and I suspect they don't either.

Leave them alone and stop wishing for something they don't want..........

USS Whitney Houston .... it will come.

She had a great voice, she was a drug addict and now she’s dead.

It is beyond me why the negro’s of this world find the scum
of the earth the center of their world.

Up standing folks of any color do not ever get the coverage on the MSM like the criminals of affirmative action.

There is an always some old saying that covers just about everything.

The one pertinent to your question is:

I didn’t watch any of it, but on the news I saw a clip and thought that was Jackson in the front. What the hell was he doing there ?

I guess I missed the part of her life where JJ was a close personal friend deserved to be seated up front where the cameras wouldn’t miss him. Insufferable turd. A friend was at a NBA basketball game and Jackson was a few seats over. Some poor women had a medical emergency and he rushed to assist, once the cameras showed up. It could have been a noble gesture, though he has no medical emergency training I know of, but when he jumped to the other side of the stretcher to insure he was in the camera shot, all suggestions he was just helping flew out the window.

He’s an indecent POS and that story about him rubbing MLK’s blood on his collar to make it look like he was right there when King was killed, I believe every word of it. King didn’t like him and told a number of people he was an opportunist, using the civil rights movement to build a career as much, if not more, than for the cause.

He was there sitting up front in one of the nice hairs facing the audience. He wasn’t a pallbearer and I have no idea why he was given such a prominent seat. Guess the Houston family thinks he’s worth the exposure.

I wondered the same thing about Jesse Jackson being there. I waited for him to speak, but I don’t think he ever did.

But he did look very uncomfortable most of the time. He didn’t applaud when everybody else did. He didn’t smile, either, as far I could tell. Probably the same discomfort unbelievers always have in the presence of true believers and true holiness.

I’m interested to see that Jesse showed up.

The other two members of the axis of racebaiting (Sharpton and Blowprah) showed up the day after she died.

I was wondering if Jesse’s private jet was in the shop or something.

My guess is that he demanded to sit there and they caved.

Here are some of the facts about MLKs death by the author of Shakedown, Ken Timmerman... Shakedown exposes Jackson for the huckster he is.

A: Jesse Jackson was not up on the balcony. They even tried to show the picture of Jesse Jackson up on the balcony with Martin Luther King. That picture was taken the day before. It was a publicity shot.

He was not up on the balcony with Martin Luther King. He was down in the parking lot talking to a bunch of musicians – Ben Branch and others. When the shots rang out, he fled and hid behind the swimming pool area and reappeared 20-30 minutes later when the television cameras arrived on the scene. That’s when Jesse Jackson told other Southern Christian Leadership Conference staffers, “Don’t you talk to the press whatever you do.”

Q: We know there were pictures all over the place of Jesse with blood on his shirt. Given that Jesse was in the parking lot when Dr. King was shot, where did that come from?

A: The next morning, he flew to Chicago and went on the NBC “Today Show.” In the meantime, he had hired a public relations agent. So here is a guy who is in such grief from Martin Luther King’s assassination that he comes back to Chicago and has the presence of mind to have himself taken from interview to interview in a chauffeur-driven car with a P.R. agent. The P.R. agent takes him to the NBC “Today” show, he appears in a shirt that he claims is smeared with Dr. Martin Luther King’s blood and he says on national television, “He died in my arms” – an absolute, patent lie.

The guy is a total fraud.

Christie is an empty vessal of humanism. Who are you to judge the character of a famous drug addict versus a Marine who sacrificed his life for freedom?

Christie is not so hateful and “crass” as to make such character judgements. He’s evolved. A smart person from the North East. He’s a social progressive, aka, a cultural regressive.
