In coming up with this list I was wowed by all the charities and good this man did for the poor for the sick and Yes for the children. Now there is something I want to get off my chest and it is an only in my opinion so hate me if you want but here it is.
Everyone focusing on the controversy surrounding Micheal Jackson Remember one thing HE WAS ONLY ACCUSED NEVER EVER EVER CONVICTED OF ANYTHING some say he bought the people so they would not go to court . Well maybe he did but maybe he knew he was not guilty but didn't want to play the courtroom drama and didn't want to have all he worked for his reputation his name dragged through the mud. And one more thing folks
If it were me and it wasn't and some one touched or hurt or anything my kids I would try to do one of two things 1 kill him or 2 take him to the fullest extent of the law and no amount of money and believe me when you don't have any and you live paycheck to paycheck to raise a family to have millions waved in your face is hard to turn down but may God strike me dead right now if I'm lying I would NEVER EVER TAKE A RED CENT FROM SOME FREAK WHO HURT OR ABUSED OR WHATEVER MY KIDS EVER!!! and IF YOU DID, THAT IS WHAT I TRUELY CALL DISCUSTING!! So before you go calling Micheal Jackson any names who's the freak now. Money makes it all better now doesn't it. Oh ya its like it never happened. Over money your kid has to remain scared for life. Ya I'm so Sure He did that to your kid. You Know people are twisted and as for the media you can go to hell to. Right up to his death Micheal Jackson was a Freak with Peter Pan syndrome now it's poor Micheal Poor Kids What happened Call us with your Jackson memories Like you gave a Shit all you ever did was try to make him look bad not ever did I hear anyone try to defend him. Well what ever pulls in ratings right.
Folks my rant is done Just remember Micheal Jackson for what he truly was and is and what he should always remembered as The Greatest Artist song writer/singer who ever lived and who did more for society in a decade than countries have done in their whole existence. AND IM NOT EVEN A DIE HARD FAN
Whew. It's been a WHILE!
