Gov Cristi wrong in flying state flags at half mast for Houston.Plenty of soldiers from NJ died in the wars and no flags were flown on their behalf.Just because she was from Newark and could sing is just not enough.Just points out the reality of how much America is hooked on meds.

Well I will continue to beat the dead horse until we get rid of the horses ASS Christi. Whitney was certainly a popular woman among all races of men and women and her passing should be morned but she did not give her life for her country like the men and women in uniforman who died for their country, they are who we should be flying flags at half mast for.

I agree with what Christi did.
because a crack head is to be honored at the same level as soldiers and police officers? [eyeroll]

When a New Jersey soldier died flags were flown at half mast. Police officers , too. I agree with what Christi did.
When a flag is flown at 1/2 mast for police or soldiers it was because of some heroic deed they did in the line of duty that they gave their life for, How does that compare to how Whitney died?

I feel that state flag lowering should be reserved for armed forces personnel killed in action, and any proclamations made by the President for the US flag.

For other prospective honorees, it can turn into a pissing match --- "rating" people, or groups of people.

I could even make a very strong arguement for my own Mother --- who has devoted her entire life to helping others.

See how it works?
