Instead of watching the memorial to Michael Jackson, I did something more meaningful and productive…I volunteered to clean the gas station’s men’s bathroom down the street from where I live.
Seriously. This whole spectacle is contemptible. It sickens me to think that we as a nation would worship and elevate a mere mortal as if he were a god.
In case we have forgotten we have young men and women fighting, dying and have died in Iraq and Afghanistan who won’t get the accolades that this oddity is receiving and will continue to receive
We have a nation that is on the brink of collapse. Our Constitution is treated like a piece of toilet paper. People are going hungry and don’t have a place to live. Most of us are worried that we won’t be able to pay our debts.
I understand that he was a legend in other people’s minds. I cannot say that I didn’t enjoy some of his music. Because I did. My condolences go out to the Jackson’s family like they do to any family when someone passes. I know the pain and the heartache of loosing a loved one. But I refuse to worship any mere mortal.
By-the-way! MJ’s family and friends should be footing the bill for this extravaganza.
