When I saw the news of Mike Jackson's death I was shocked, and in fact I was just like the rest of the world that decided to stop hating him and mourn the worlds new loss. NO! I'm sorry but if I were to write that it would be a lie, I for one will not fall into the traps of the media, which is trying to portray him as some sort of G-d or king (on a side note, one left wing reporter literally said "Obama is g-d", and like any other left wing reporter, hes nuts). A handful of people on this world hated him and accused him of many wrongdoings, but once he died it was like he went to church, confessed, and all his sins magically evaporated and then condensed into the tears everyone now sheds over him ( yeah, that was the water cycle used in a simile with a priest).

I don't care where I was when I found out about it, or what I was doing at the time, my emotions did not change one bit when I heard about his "tragic" death. I may feel bad for the people who bought tickets to his upcoming concerts, but you can all go buy a ticket to his funeral if you'd really like (now that's one crazy idea). Very few cared about him in this world, other hated him, and now they are together in unison, forgetting what he did to some and remembering that he introduced the moonwalk to us.

But who cares anymore about what he recently has done, every newspaper had to have him on the front cover, I bet you if they cut of his hair and sell it, it would sell for 500 times as much as it would if he did himself when he was alive. The world just doesnt get it, he was a bad man stop crying!

Now I know some of you are big time fans of his, how youy still are I do not know, but the least you can do is not start a facebook club to say kaddish for him, he isn't worth it, for what hes done no kaddish is moving him to heaven.

Whew (wipes sweat off forehead) what a rant, I'm done for tonight.

After entering the Pearly Gates, St Peter welcomed Farrah Fawcett and told her she could have one wish granted for her long suffering. Without hesitation she wished that all the children in the world would be safe!

Back on earth at that very moment Michael Jackson dropped dead.

Then, when Michael approached the Pearly Gates, St. Peter asked him what he wanted. Michael said he needed someone to make a pitch for him to God.

Poor Billy Mays never knew what hit him…

No more about this child molesting reprobate. I can't stand hearing about him anymore. The guy is dead, leave it alone. Why not talk about the real issues?

Honestly Frum

Real issues?, as in the latest protest and rabbis with crazy dinim when it comes to choshen mishpat, sorry but I dont want to steal your material.

G6 - cute.
i think that it is very relevent that mj was a child molester. he was an ok musician, but not the king of pop.elvis's daughter was his ex-wife, he himself was not elvis. i do think its sad that one of hashem's creations has passed away, but that's the extent of it.
mj died at a relatively young age. i think this is why its reached such star status. that, and i think that everyone would like to ignore reality and focus on the fiction of this event being oh so important .

MIM- I couldn't agree with you more. In fact I just started writing a post about this issue, but I guess now there's no need to post it!

g6- that was really funny!!! :)

Yes people like focusing on the fiction, reality is just too hard to handle.

Mike, I was not referring to you but to the midstram media and how they should talk about how Obama is wrecking this country and selling us out to the Chinese. However the issues you point our regarding mob rule in Charedi circles are important as well.

He was pretty big in Russia and he was big here as well when he was doing his music videos. Later, when the scandals started and the music died he became just another celebrity.

HF, wa hoi shva putonkva idyar ;-)
He should us out to the Japanese. Their language is a lot easier and they make better movies.
