Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL) led our esteemed U.S. House of Representatives in a “one minute recess” tribute to King of Pop, Michael Jackson – and was a “weird” tribute, as most things with Congress these days fit the “weird” category.
Michael Jackson was an extraordinary entertainer, once upon a time. More recent, he has been just a weird and freakish person shunning who God made him. Jesse Jackson, Jr. remembered him in this bazaar statement:
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.”
Although Michael Jackson is reported to make $20 million per year, he is said to owe $400 million. When $20 million a year is not enough to live on, and pay your everyday expenses, like your pharmacy bill, something is wrong…most of which can be easily explained as a character flaw.
A Jackson associate said:”Michael constantly let people down when it came to money. He kept them hanging on by promising to pay his debts.
If this is a legacy, Congress needs to examine it and do some explaining to America.
Shame on Congress for this act of submission. A tribute to Pvt. William Long would have been appropriate because he was gunned down by a Muslim. He was hunted down and murdered because he was a soldier…murdered at the behest of the most intense threat, of all threats to our country, Islam. Everyday…every single day, Congress should open with a moment of silence to those who have died protecting the United States because Islam exists. We do not need tributes in Congress to the likes of Michael Jackson. Leave that to the entertainment industry where it belongs, or churches or…but not on the floor of Congress
