Govenor Christie Got it Wrong!
With all due respect...I must say that the State of New Jersey is wrong.
On Saturday, all flags across New Jersey will be lowered, as Whitney Houston is buried.
What the FU%#???
Governor Christie strongly defends his decision to lower flags to half staff for Whitney Houston.
Let me get this straight....
December 7th, we lower our flags in remembrance of Pearl Harbor Day.
September 11th, we lower our flags in remembrance of Patriots Day.
Memorial Day until noon, we lower our flags.
Somehow, some way... Whitney Houston is of equal importance as these dates in our American History?
Did I miss something? Will her family receive a folded flag?
I am angry about this.
What is going on folks? Please understand...in my opinion no celebrity deserves the same honor as those who have paid the ultimate price for our nation!
Our Sarge was laid to rest a couple weeks ago...did the state of Florida lower flags when he was laid to rest? Here is a man who passed away due to complications of Agent Orange, which he contracted courtesy of Vietnam. This man lived his entire life loving and serving his homeland... a true Patriot.
Governors can use their discretion to lower flags in honor of 'prominent citizens'. Whitney Houston was given an amazing gift...the voice of an angel. She entertained many and was handsomely compensated. Yes, she did perform the Star Spangled Banner beautifully at a Super Bowl.... but does that place her in the same league as our Fallen? I think not.
This is my flag. This flag represents our nations' strength and unity. Our warriors defend our flag each and every day.
