President Obama HAS ordered flags at half mast for Mr. Neil Armstrong. Flags flown at half-mast for Whitney Houston was ordered by New Jersey governor Chris Christie.

This was just pointed out to me, you're 100% correct...a lesson learned for me in checking sources before going with it.

No problem. Just gotta separate truth from lies, no matter if I like the lies or not. I think the biggest problem with politics are the lies.

Very true. Armstrong walked away from making an all but unlimited amount of money that could have been his for the taking. It was said by several advertising agencies that contacted him after the Apollo 11 Lunar Mission, that he could have easily been one of the richest men in America in the 70's, had he chose to cash in on the fame and fortune that awaited him because of the fame he achieved.

Commercials, spokesman, public speaking, commercial product endorsements, were all his for the taking. He walked away from all of it. That alone says a lot about the man.
