Pelosi Squashes MiJac Congressional Resolution By Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee

There are 23 comments on the www.eurweb.com story from Jul 10, 2009, titled Pelosi Squashes MiJac Congressional Resolution By Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. In it, www.eurweb.com reports that:

*It's over for House Resolution 600 – the legislation introduced by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas that would have proclaimed Michael Jackson as an American legend, musical icon and world humanitarian.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday denied the resolution because debate on the symbolic measure could raise "contrary views" about the pop star's life, she explained.

Lawmakers are free to use House speeches "to express their sympathy or their praise any time that they wish," said Pelosi, D-Calif. "I don't think it's necessary for us to have a resolution."

Even before Pelosi's comments, some Democrats said privately they did not support the resolution and a divisive debate would hurt House efforts to muster the votes for priorities such as health care and climate change.

If average Joe was brought up twice on child molestation charges, acquitted or not, no member of congress would support anything for him (too politically incorrect); and most of the Michael Jackson lovers would automatically assume the guy was guilty or he wouldn't have been brought up on charges - twice! Michael's sister (LaToya) even said that this guy had a kid in his bedroom, sleeping with him, for a month at a time and that that was not normal. Michael Jackson was rich and famous (and talented, whether you like his music or not,) but worthy of a Congressional Resolution? Come on! Rich and famous is the allure to all this MJ bolstering, and that is an insult to those who genuinely make great contributions to society.

ROFL.

I don't ordinarily point out spelling mistakes, but you gotta love it when someone, while trying to insult *someone else's* intelligence, misspells a simple word like 'incompetence'.

Especially considering the definiton of the word.:-)

And anyway, wht's wrong with warning other posters not to click a bad spam link? I myself have reported that off topic spammer several times, not that to Topix people give a crap, but I've still clicked the link.

Take your own advice, oak. Go out and get yourself a life.

They just did that because of the stupid health care reform debate not to mention the midterm elections are coming up next year. Politicians will do and say anything just to get a vote.

I agree, Pelosi just did that so she can gain more support on this health care issue. She needs all the votes she can because even her seat is up for re-election.

Yet the news doesn't show any outrage in our congressional quarters over the subject.

Let reality sink in and burn good. JackO is NOT, nor will he ever be, approved for ANY recognition by the U.S. congress. Pelosi did the right thing.
