That's what some are calling the House Resolution that Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has authored. It's a congressional resolution honoring Michael
The resolution is just a very long list of his accomplishments. The end of it is this -
Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
(1) recognizes Michael Jackson as a global humanitarian and a noted leader in the fight against worldwide hunger and medical crises; and
(2) celebrates Michael Jackson as an accomplished contributor to the worlds of arts and entertainment, scientific advances in the treatment of
HIV/AIDS, and global food security.
Michael Jackson was a VERY talented person. But considering the unresolved pedophile issues surrounding him, I'm not sure if this is a good idea.
Perhaps they should wait until the emotions die down and all the future pedophile plaintiffs get their day in court before they honor him in this
I FULLY support honoring Americans who have done great things and that other Americans can be proud of. But I think this is premature and that, at
this time, our House of Representatives could be spending their time on other things that are more pressing for our country.
edited to add ... anyone know why this was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs ???
