Anyone that's wants to know what's gone wrong in this country shouldn't have watched Jacko's funeral. The problem is the ones that watched and attended. What a discrace to this country.. It's sad.

Obviously people in California are very well off with extremely low unemployment numbers how else could everyone take the day off with the added expenses of traveling to see a rotting corpse?

As long has his handlers have been carting him to and fro across the land I can't help but wonder what the smell is getting to be like.

Just one sad, giant freak show.

they're doing great things with embalming fluid nowadays.

a body can be embalmed several times, if needed, Lincolns was.

Ed McMahon died recently. He was a widely known entertainer, but prior to his stage accomplishments he was a distinguished Marine Corps fighter pilot in WWII earning six Air Medals and attaining the rank of Colonel. He was discharged in 1946 and was later promoted to the rank of Brigadier General in the CA Air National Guard.


Farrah Fawcett died this week after a long career in Hollywood as an actress. After she was diagnosed with cancer, she became an activist for cancer treatment and devoted her last remaining years encouraging people to seek treatment. She documented her plight on film and used it to encourage others to stay positive and upbeat despite their diagnosis and suffering.


Michael Jackson died this week. He was perhaps one of the greatest singers of modern time. He will also be remembered for his eccentric lifestyle that included sleeping with a chimpanzee, living in a carnival-like atmosphere at Neverland, his fascination with Peter Pan, and his numerous masks and costumes. He also admitted to finding pleasure sleeping with young boys and he paid out millions of dollars in settlements to the families of these boys despite being acquitted by a court on one allegation of sexual molestation.


QUESTION - Which of the above did the House of Representatives declare a moment of silence for?

QUESTION - Which of the above's family received a personal note of condolence from President Obama?

We all know the answers to these two questions. And THAT'S what wrong in this country!

So what you're saying is.....if nobody would have attended or watched a celebrity funeral, then there would be no problems in this country?

Man O Man a memo should have gone out on that one.

I think the problem with this country is that we have people who are willing to take a dump on someones grave.
