Gov Krispie Creame is a Left Wing Loon !
A young Marine from Jersey died in Afghanistan the day before Whitney Houston did. Did Christie lower the flag for him?
Americans have tuned out of the war on terror it seems. I wonder if the next terror attack kills some celebrities then we might see Hollywood and the zombies that worship them support the war.
[ Christie is a conservative Republican ]
No he isn’t.
Lowering the flag for a drug addled entertainer is an insult. No matter how popular she may have been it is inappropriate.
I also liked Whitney Houston but she certainly doesn’t deserve this “honor”. By doing this he is showing kids that it’s okay to live and die the way she did.
She had the choice as a responsible adult TO NOT DO THE DRUGS in the first place knowing she would become addicted. She did them anyway. Way to many people WORSHIP these false idols and put them on pedestals. She made her choices and they were wrong.
The best thing they can do is put a picture of her on a billboard with:
Gone before her time because she had money and used it the wrong way. Drugs kill.
The flag should remain full.
Can’t wait until they name the next ship the USS Whitney Houston.
She is absolutely correct
There’s no way around it for Christie. How can you honor a self-destructive celebrity over a fallen marine? One gave her life for an addiction, the other for his country. Is it not enough that high profile entertainers make millions, have huge fan clubs, have more “highs” (in every sense of the word) and receive more honors in a single month than the average person in a lifetime? Do we really have to start lowering our flags for them every time one of them dies now? Why not start erecting shrines for them too while we’re at it?
Ay yi yi.
At first Christie seemed like a breath of fresh air but this and other things have shown him to be a typical pandering politician who just happens to have a talent for witty retorts. What a disappointment he has turned out to be. But that can be said for most Republican politicians of late.
Christie’s action on this issue is disgusting, yet it is consistent with his RINOism.
This unpatriotic act and blatant insult to our fallen, just adds to understanding of why this large piece of lard has endorsed his RINO brother, Romney.
Whitney Houston was a wonderful singer and she had been a beautiful woman, but she was certainly not an American hero.
I loved her “voice”, just as I loved the voice of Elvis, and still do. They, like many others, were entertainers, very talented and gifted entertainers.....but that is all.
We live in a mad world, being lead by corrupt morons.
This is an abuse of power and degrades our flag.
Do we have a public memorial every time some pop star over doses just because we like their music?
Did we lower the flag when Michael Jackson died?
This bizarre decision destroys Christie’ credibility.
It is an insult to the men who sacrificed their lives to give us our freedom.
We really could be losing it. It could be over.
Here is the problem. In our upside down society there are no consequences. Sports star baddies are heroes, impeached Presidents get reelected, and children are in charge.
Christie likely recognizes that a majority of Americans are celebrity infatuated entertainment addicts and he will gain good will with them for loudly honoring a widely known singer.
