The solder's dad did what he though was right to honor his dead son whom fought for this country! However, Ms. Houston was also a hero, she gave the Americans the best voice in the world. Music is a healer, just ask King Saul, David play music for King Saul to drive away many demons. Whitney had that type of healing in her voice. I hope people will understand that Whitney Houston fought and won many battles. The flag was at half staff on Saturday which has past! It is history that the NJ gov. flag was half staff for the best voice in this world, Ms. Whitney Houston. Why? Because God said so! American if it make you feel better to burn your American flag because of your evil and hatred minds so be it. What is done is done, there is nothing else for you to do but accepted what has already taken place or act the fool that you are even before Ms. Whitney Houston death. Now you have your excuse.

I have to disagree with Christie on this one. Pretty soon they'll be lowering the flag every time someone from Jersey Shore gets laid.

Mrs Houston was a great woman whose voice and sweet personality touch the HEARTS OF MANY she had her demons like we all do but she was human and gave to several charities and her community know matter what gets said about her she is a treasure who will be loved & miss instead of you all slandering her. Name learn from her bad judgement and try to make your lives and those u love a better one

I think the teenage daughter has allready been to "re-hab"
She's obviously a "crack-baby"
It's too bad her mom died, but when you whack out on crack, and meth, shit like that is going to happen.
Jesus Christ,... didnt anyone see the pictures of Whittney lately? Holy shit!... She really looked bad.
I can see why this guy is pissed off about the flag at half mast for a crackhead, when they dont do it for our soldiers!
What REALLY pisses me off, is that the city of Grandville NEVER loweres the flag to half mast when they are supposed to do it!

I can't say as I blame the father. Christie went to far on this one. This should be reserved for our servicemen and others, such as Presidents.

While I loved Whitneys voice in the past and I just watched the Bodyguard the other nite. I do not think it was necessary.

Christie should be ashamed of his choice.

No what's a waste of time and energy is flying the flag at half staff for a washed up crack addict like she was some kind of war hero. Nobody but a stupid liberal gives a squirt of piss about this waste of human life that threw her's away.

I too disagree with the flag at half staff for Whitney Houston, (total disrespect) for our fallen soldiers. I believe that priorities should be give to our brave soldiers and police officers who put their lives on the line everyday for us. So I can understand why the dad did what he did, the flag should have been half staff when his son died for America.

They only hate rich conservatives,....you know, the ones that create jobs, and stuff.
Rich liberal celebrities who became rich by doing practically nothing are the hero's of the liberals.

For Gov Cristy to order the American Flag to be flown at half mast for Whitney Houston or anyone else he so pleases is WRONG!

"Can the governor order the US flag half-staffed for anyone he or she chooses?

No. Section 7m of the Flag Code authorizes a governor to half-staff the US flag upon the death of a present or former official of the government of the state, or the death of a member of the Armed Forces from that state who dies while serving on active duty.

The President, by comparison, is authorized to half-staff the US flag by proclamation upon the death of principal figures of the US Government and the Governor of a State, territory, or possession, as well as in the event of the death of other officials or foreign dignitaries.

We recommend flying the state flag at half-staff.

In the News: Governor Wrong to Have Flag Lowered to Half Staff for Celebrities [February 16, 2012]

A recent change allows governors to order the flag to half-staff to honor fallen soldiers from their state (see Public Law 110-41). The change was the result of governor proclamations, like this one from Governor Granholm of Michigan.

Some object to this extension of a governor's authority because they feel half-staffing the flag for every fallen soldier can be seen as anti-war. Some feel that overuse cheapens the symbolic power of half-staffing the flag, traditionally reserved for political leaders."
