Chris Christie lowered the state flag to half-staff in her honor:
OldPossum sees race all over this, and likely everything good that happens to a negro:
Folks, folks, you have forgotten her race.hinckley buzzard knows the only sort of people deserve honor:
Do you think he would this for a deceased white singer?
Elvis was at least a US military veteran.
ntnychik has a more musical test for who gets half-staff:
Whitney’s rendition of the Star Spangled Banner is the last time I heard it sung right that I can remember. That respect for our country deserves some respect for her.Sudetenland is a National Anthem purist:
I don't care how many people praise a singer's version of the national anthem, if they jazz it up or stylize it, then they are not singing it to honor our nation, they are singing it to aggrandize themselves.immadashell drops the logic:
The Star Spangled Banner does not have grace-notes in it. All that warbling that these modern day singers use to "make it their own" is disrespectful and revolting. I have had to quit watching the beginning of many sporting events, because most singers don't know how to sing the national anthem and they "jazz it up" to suit themselves.
Give me a straight singer who sings the anthem straight every time.
he had ordered flags flown at half-staff for New Jersey’s 31 service members killed in action and every police officer slain in the line of duty during his time in office
Did all of them also commit suicide?drug use = suicide = no one gets to mourn you
madison10 gets conspiratorial about a scenario that doesn't exist:
I’m not so sure she committed suicide without “assistance.”Christie fails AmericanInTokyo 's hypothetical Reagan test:
Governor Reagan would never have lowered the Stars And Stripes for Janis Joplin or Jim Morrison in California. Pure pandering. Not conservative.Lancey Howard hates Christie now:
New Jersey Fats jumped the shark on this one.SaraJohnson hates Christie enough she knows his thoughts!
I didn’t take him for a pandering slimeball last year, but with the Supreme Court appointments and now this... pee yoo.
Chris Christie is great at cutting spending but just can’t figure out ethical social questions. He’s an immediate gratification sorta humanist guy. Might explain his gluttonly problem.Chris Christe idolizes crack addicts!
Typical humanist. Who is he to judge lowering the flag for a singer who killed herself with drugs versus a lowering the flag for someone of National prominance who served our country? These people have no meaning in life beyond materialism and they puke their lack of dignity all over the nation. Whitney, a crack addict, is his hero.
Daffynition gets all Jesus moralizing:
Let's see....she willfully took drugs....she willfully drank too much...........she didn't take the *cure* ...the proven clear path for recovery.
All her enablers can go pound sand, along with the RINO Christie. She should be elevated to sainthood. Meh.Meh indeed! Clearly too cool for the Internet.
