Maybe if those child abuse claims hadn't been put against him & the media laid off of him he wouldn't have started taking all those 'wonderful', LEGAL drugs!! Michael got a lot of bad advice from bad people who were just there for his money, it's such a shame he was so trusting of people, you know, like a child some would say.....I honestly believe Michael was a pure, kind & giving person, who made this often ugly world a much brighter nicer place.....

whos to say he did not inject himself, maybe to much...mixed with other drugs....dr bowden path expert said yesterday 95%
of all autospy's can determine cause of death...the other 5% are chemical related....he did not have a heart attack,they would
have seen that at autopsy...he died of drug overdose....dont think that when tox results come back you will be given the truth,
they dont have to dislose that to the public...you will be told something,period...when u got money u can get the drugs, no doctor
killed anybody, he killed himself, weather it was accidental or suicide we will most likely never know....nobody can make you
quit substance abuse, u have to want to........

What about this latest article on AP yahoo, that his nutirionist Cherylyn Lee talks about Michael begging for an iv drug to sleep called Diprivan. She says he had it before and it knocks you out to say the LEAST. That you have to have a doc. all night when you have it to monitor it. Maybe that's what the doc gave him in the needle and so he isn't lying saying he didn't give him demerol!! His justification in the crap. TMZ.....got anything on the ???

Ambishin: If anybody needs to make a change, and look in the mirror it is YOU. Your post is riddled with misspelled words and basic nonsense. While his passing is sad for his family, and those who cared, where will the world be without Michael Jackson? JUST FINE! No more molested children, or dangling his own kids off a balcony. If you and others like you don't think you can make it in a world without Michael Jackson, then you have no life. You just made my previous point with your idiocy. Please stop. You are embarrassing yourself and the people like you.

MJ NEVER had a childhood. That's abnormal and it affected him. He WAS childlike and that's not pedophylia. People are so ready to claim the worst about things they do not know. As far as the drugs, probably. However, he would have to lie when people like some posting here are so ready to accuse, slander and gossip. It's none of our business but you make it so and then claim to be burdened by the news. The real problem is MJ had a life far beyond blogging and that's what really pi_ses people off.

Idiot Joe Jackson is already working on Michaels kids. He said,"They say that Blanket can really dance" So here we go again. Those three kids are not going to be able to lead a normal life, or even grieve their fathers death. Gotta rehearse to make Grandpa Idiot Joe some money.

The following is a quote from a recent article on our blog:

"Lest you be confused about this drug thing, there is little difference between illegal/recreational drugs, and prescription drugs, with the exceptions being the legitimacy of the “entity” which produces them, who gets to prescribe them, and whether politicians benefit. Drugs be drugs.

"Take it from some guys who matured (arguably) during the drugs, sex, and rock and roll years. We know lots of successful doctors, business people, family people, accountants, judges, and pillars of society who once used drugs in many a form and fashion. Fortunately for most of them and for society, they appreciated that drugs might be an interesting pastime, but not a life long journey."

Who would have thought this would work as a country song? Michael Jackson's Billie Jean? Dr BLT discovered that it would a couple of days after Michael Jackson passed away, as he was sitting in front of a local Starbucks in Bakersfield, California, strumming his guitar to a country rhythm.

After running the idea by Big House frontman, Monty Byrom, and having Monty sing it back to him, he was even more convinced. So he's taking it to the studio with rising Bakersfield country artist, Penny Marie. Here's a sample

Truly sad story to the end of a music and humanitarian legend. You can't fault his friends who tried to intervene with his drug addiction. However, those "yes" men and women who did what was wrong and aided, supplied, and colluded have death on their shoulders; a wake-up call for all friends, relatives, parents, having relationships with those addicted to prescribed or illicit drugs. Help begins in the home and community. And, for those addicted and in dire need of change, encourage them to seek professional help. Richard Fontenot, Los Angeles.
