Royal Baby Obsession Shows America is Addicted to Royalty; Wants Dictator King

By Debbie Schlussel

I was out very sick the last two days with an incredible migraine and a related fever/flu. But while I was away, I didn’t miss much. The great mobster actor Dennis Farina died and an annoying, crazy man from FOX News showed us his bare torso, making me barf even more than from illness. And America, once again, showed that we–or, at least, most of the rest of you long for the days of the monarchy. The hype over the British royal baby–who is nothing more than the progeny of centuries of inbreeding (some of them descended from Mohammed–yes, the Brit Royal family has him as an ancestor)–shows that, sadly, far too many Americans have forgotten that we overthrew that monarchy centuries ago. Americans–when they elect statists like Barack Obama over and over, and when they gush over some annoying baby born out of the right vagina–show that they want a dictator yet again.

002

I’m saddened by all this. It’s not just about celebrity. Today’s USA Today, which is–hellooooo . . . ?–supposed to be the national McPaper of the United States, calls the new British Prince, “The People’s Prince.” Really? Which people? He’s not my prince. Again, this is America. We don’t have royalty. We don’t have glorified high school drop-out inbreeds sitting collecting national welfare and being celebrated the way the Brits celebrate Prince William and Princess Kate and their new spawn. At least, we’re not supposed to. But Americans like–they long for–royalty. Whether it was the Kennedys or their trashy, low-life imitation, the Obamas, Americans can’t take democracy or equality of opportunity. They want to be ruled.






If the November 2012 Presidential election wasn’t Exhibit A of this, I don’t know what is. Americans want government to be their King. Their King BabyDaddy, Their King Oppressor, Their King Witch Doctor, and so on. Americans don’t want to fend for themselves, the way our forefathers did, when we broke from the British. Tea Parties would never happen today. We’d pay the tax. The movement that calls itself, “The Tea Party,” is unfortunately, in part, the machine of some wealthy Republican consultants out of California, headed by Sal Russo–a man who paid himself millions out of “Tea Party” profits. Cha-ching!

Americans clearly want to hearken back to a day when we did what the British King asked of us, when we didn’t dare disobey. That’s part of the celebrity culture surrounding the birth of the new British Prince. Other than that, he’s nothing more than the product of lucky sperm and an egg and not much else. They’ve never achieved anything of substance, and they stand for nothing. What exactly do they do, other than look nice, walk around, and collect money? I’m not sure.

Maybe, one day, Americans will wake up from that. But don’t hold your breath. There’s a reason every single national American news outlet has a big segment of its “news” coverage focused on this new spoiled kid destined for bratdom and Islamo-pandering like his parents, granddad Charles (the self-appointed “Ambassador for Islam”), and great-grandparents (none of whom has ever visited Israel and won’t).

    We took a different path from Canada because we wanted to strike our own path. Its like we have regrets about our independence. This is what the founding fathers of this country died for? Seriously, the fact we care about much about nothing about a country on whom the sun has set on its empire, says more about us than it says about the British. And if you have to ask, no I haven’t been following what amounts to tabloid news!

    NormanF on July 23, 2013 at 4:06 pm

There’s nothing much to write home about the British monarchy. Prince William may never become King and I don’t take back my view of the state the UK is in today. We’re merely ten years behind them.

And with Mo’ now the most popular boys name in Great Britain, how long will the House Of Windsor last? This may be the last feel good moment for the monarchy in a country that’s sliding down to the graveyard.

I couldn’t care less if the new British heir apparent ever rules the country someday. Even as a celebrity news, it already has a dated feel to it!

NormanF on July 23, 2013 at 4:01 pm

Not sure why the author is so twisted up about a little kid and had to fall back to Mohammed, but as a Canadian that’s just as far away as from Britain as she is, well,(scratching chin here) maybe she, (still scratching) has to have a kid herself. Yes, that’s it, she needs to have a kid so her family can scorn her, and keep up the traditions she so loves, and holds dear.

Davood Hersh on July 23, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    Davood, a.k.a. Mohammed, can’t you even manage the correct Jewish spelling for your faux Jewish name?

    skzion on July 23, 2013 at 4:13 pm

      Skzion,

      The ever amusing Fars News Agency will assure us the new British royal is actually Jewish.

      If we ever get an interruption in our regularly scheduled programming again, I’m waiting for news of the baby’s brit millah. After all, Jewish baby boys need that nip and tuck!

      The kind of nonsense credulous people fill their heads with these days must be seen to be believed.

      NormanF on July 23, 2013 at 4:17 pm

        Yes, I’m sure the house of Windsor is Jewish through and through. :)

        skzion on July 23, 2013 at 5:19 pm

Davood,

I happen to be Canadian by birth. My childhood passport records me as a British subject. That’s said, neither the British nor the Canadian monarchy has ever impressed me. Its the least attractive monarchy in the world. I can’t for the life of me get why people fawn over it so much!

NormanF on July 23, 2013 at 4:12 pm

Nope, this is wrong. It’s the media that obsess about the royals, not Americans. Most of the Americans I know and work with could care less. The media covers this crap to distract Americans from the real problems facing this country and therefore, cover Obama’s mulatto a$$.

Also, the election of November 2012 may in part have been about free stuff from the government, but mostly it was about disingenuous white liberals, seeking to ease their collective guilt, voting for a black man.

LiberalJooozRStupid on July 23, 2013 at 4:16 pm

Folks who want to trash white ass! The one thing that never goes away in this country is corrosive white liberal guilt and if Martin Trayvon isn’t enough of a distraction, for the bread and circuses we have a new royal baby to consume what’s left of our bored lives in the Internet age.

NormanF on July 23, 2013 at 4:21 pm

Fortunately, there are plenty of Americans who get a kick out of mocking the Royal Family. Here’s a hilarious clip from the Naked Gun with the late Lesley Neilsen and also featuring George Kennedy, with the former putting the Queen of England in her proper “place.”

Tha was a great comic moment! Sadly, we’ll never see the likes of Leslie Nielsen and George Kennedy again.

What a set of heroes — Trayvon Martin, Helen Thomas and the Royal Baby.

Little Al on July 23, 2013 at 4:50 pm

Excellent article. It said what I was thinkin’ of today. Saw CNN’s coverage during my lunch break and could not believe all the coverage it got.

England is NOTHING to write home about. Sure, their accents are great (not as good as the Aussies and Irish but way better than the annoying Scottish ones…) and their education may be a tick better but the UK is a cesspool.

It’s true one must go to their press to get the news America ignores or buries but I see them and their culture as disgusting. They celebrate heaps of skanks and yahoos. It’s wicked gross.

But USA is catching up to them. It’s a sad time because America has fallen and it’s tragic to see.

Skunky on July 23, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Skunky: “Sure, their accents are great”

    Ugh. Speak for yerself, sister.

    I read an article somewhere that most Americans polled (or tested, not sure) responded better to people with British/Aussie accents. They rated them as sounding more intelligent and held their attention better as compared to same dialogue with no accent.

    This is why a number of infomercials use those annoying a$$wipes with accents as their pitchmen.

    They grate my nerves and make me sick.

    DS_ROCKS! on July 23, 2013 at 7:15 pm

      You’re not wrong DSR. I myself catch it every time I hear a Brit voice in a commercial (that they are using it for a reason).

      At any rate, the Irish accent is like a song (and I am not particularly found of the Irish…) and I’m biased on Australian ones but really, who would rather listen to a Bostonian one? I’ll take a Pom one any day over that! The ones I have to hear on call-in talk radio make me wanna do the Dutch!

      Skunky on July 23, 2013 at 8:15 pm

        My sister attended a boarding school run by nuns just off the boat from Ireland and until the day she died despite having Irish ancestry ourselves that experience of being immersed in the sing-song accent forever turned her off it completely and preferred, shock-horror, the Scottish accent. Nice that you like the Australian accent though. As to the obsession with the royals – think Kardashians with manners. So they ‘do it’ too, must be humans like the rest of us.

        Bronson on July 24, 2013 at 7:07 am

Who is a royal high school drop-out? Both William and Kate finished university and he actually has a REAL job flying search and rescue in the RAF. As for inbreeding. Kate is not part of the royal line at all and has introduced a breath of fresh air into a family that needs to realize it is an anachronism. Her family actually works for their living and why take it out on a baby? Every life is a miracle and should be celebrated, yes, even North West. I don’t understand supposed anti-abortion people going all mocking over a birth. That’s what pro-LIFE is about even if the circumstances of that birth are unfortunate which this one most certainly is not.

Italkit on July 23, 2013 at 5:21 pm

    “I don’t understand supposed anti-abortion people going all mocking over a birth.”

    What is it that you don’t understand, Italkit? One can mock some baby that is claimed to have great importance for the mass public without believing that the baby should have been killed.

    I do not know, nor do I care to know, what these two royals’ formal level of education is. The British royals are a notoriously stupid lot, the only exception being the socialist mathematician and philanderer Betrand Russell. They have always been shoe-ins for the “legacy” slots of British universities. The royals are also notoriously pro-Arab and anti-Israel.

    At least the Kardashians will not be with us for too many years more.

    And frankly, given the hijinks that have happened among the royals in the past ten years or so, I’d say the Kardashian-Royal gulf is not so wide as some may think.

      Miranda Rose Smith on July 24, 2013 at 7:11 am

        Actually, Bertrand Russell’s parents were the Viscount and Viscountess of Amberley. But he didn’t wear it on his sleeve as though that were an accomplishment. During his long life (1872-1970), he had many more substantive accomplishments.

    DS_ROCKS! on July 23, 2013 at 6:57 pm

      At birth, yes, what happened later, maybe even a few days or weeks later to create the monsters they became, of course not.

      Italkit on July 24, 2013 at 7:33 am

    Italkit, the implications of your argument are disturbing. Why take it out on the baby? Right now there is activity in Congress towards granting legal amnesty (they already have it de facto) to all the illegal aliens we are plagued with.

    The Conservative Republicans are saying that they will be tough — they want to grant amnesty only to the children who were brought here. After all, it is not their fault that their parents brought them here. So to spell it out, giving amnesty to the children starts the process of giving it to everybody.

    Children do not exist in a vacuum. It is not just a question of the royal baby’s own intentions and mindset — it is what s(he) represents, and the consequences to society of this adulation, just like with the illegal aliens, the key issue is the consequences to society.

    As our learned President says, the context must be considered.

    Little Al on July 24, 2013 at 11:30 am

They are a beautiful young couple. Even the NY Daily News had the grace to compare Kate favorably with Kardashian and hold her up as an example of young womanhood. Yeah, I know they’re hypocrites cause everyday it was KK, KK, KK but still they recognized class when they saw it.

Italkit on July 23, 2013 at 5:23 pm

    “Even the NY Daily News . . . recognized class when they saw it.”

    -Italkit

    WELL, I’d sure consider that august publication an expert on class. So glad that Italkit provided the cite.

    I did decide to spend more time than I had in my whole life prior to today to research Italkit’s classy couple. William went to Eton (slumming) and then to the ancient but laughably mediocre University of St. Andrews. That’s where he met his wife to be. The guy is a high-level royal but was evidently too lazy and stupid to get into Cambridge or Oxford.

    In fairness, though, both appear to be far less stupid than Diana:

    Diana was first educated at Silfield School in Kings Lynn, Norfolk, then at Riddlesworth Hall in Norfolk and at West Heath Girls’ School (later reorganised as the New School at West Heath, a special school for boys and girls) in Sevenoaks, Kent, where she was regarded as a poor student, having attempted and failed all of her O-levels twice.[3] In 1977, at the age of 16, she left West Heath and briefly attended Institut Alpin Videmanette, a finishing school in Rougemont, Switzerland.”

    skzion on July 23, 2013 at 6:09 pm

      How many Pulitzers have you won, SK? Amidst all the tabloid stupidity, the News has managed to win several over the years. I said they’re hypocrites but at least they put the good stuff in to contrast the junk. There are kernels of good journalism there if you look. In fact, they have published articles about Israel that no one else has and they’ve been more upfront about certain perps being Muslims. They have also been more even handed with articles about Jews and Israel than most MSM. Certainly more so than the NYT or WaPo which I also read.

      And I suppose anyone who hasn’t graduated from an Ivy, Georgetown or one of the Seven sisters is stupid and lazy. Does that include Debbie who was USM? The point was they graduated. They were not dropouts as Debbie said. Diana was and it showed. The other point is they made sure there was no inbreeding although if y’all recall, Elizabeth’s mother, the late Queen Mum was also a “commoner” and if nothing else, so was Diana. Neither of them contributed Windsor DNA.
      The NYDN bills itself as “the picture newspaper” and in that, they are second to none. There are some great photos of the Cambridges and new baby who just happens to look exactly like Churchill at this point. haha

      Italkit on July 24, 2013 at 7:30 am

        *correction: Debbie was UM

        Italkit on July 24, 2013 at 7:43 am

        “How many Pulitzers have you won, SK? Amidst all the tabloid stupidity, the News has managed to win several over the years.”

        The Pulitzer is a badge of shame, certainly when bestowed on a journalist (it is NOT bestowed on a newspaper). However, my point was that this august source was not a reliable judge of “class.” How exactly is a Pulitzer (which was given to someone who is not on the reporting team for this story) relevant? The best spin I could put on this point is that you are making a classic “argument from authority,” which of course is a fallacious argument.

        “In fact, they have published articles about Israel that no one else has and they’ve been more upfront about certain perps being Muslims….”

        Utterly irrelevant. My point was the deep anti-Semitism of the British Royals. You seem to have no problem attacking Christians for their anti-Semitism. That evidently changes when those in question are royals.

        “And I suppose anyone who hasn’t graduated from an Ivy, Georgetown or one of the Seven sisters is stupid and lazy. Does that include Debbie who was USM [UM]? The point was they graduated. They were not dropouts as Debbie said.”

        I guess you are right about them not being dropouts. A palpable hit. Alas, you manage to mess up yet again by not getting my point: William could have gone anywhere he wanted to go because of his family’s clout. So, he goes to an ancient place (looks good) of utter mediocrity (waaaay below UM) rather than a place of merit. Most people do not have families with such clout. Charles, by contrast, went to Cambridge.

        “The other point is they made sure there was no inbreeding…”

        Yeah, you’re right on this point. However, I expect Debbie was referring to the royals in general. And in general, they are a bunch of inbred dropouts.

        But really, now that you being “selective” in your participation, why bother with the royals? I’d guess it is mainly because you have an opportunity to attack Debbie, which is your real motivation here. In truth, I have quadrupled my knowledge of the royals because of this story and now find that my IQ has dropped as well. Of course, it’s possible that you just find the royals fascinating–but I would not accuse even you of that vulgarity.

        skzion on July 24, 2013 at 7:05 pm

Debbie, there is very questionable connection between Mohammed’s descendants and the British-European royals. The alleged connection seem to originate from Zaida of Seville, who was the mistress, later wife of Alfonso VI of Castile (who also had another living wife named Isabel). Zaida was a wife of the Muslim emir of Seville in Spain. There is no evidence that Zaida was descended from one of Mohammed’s surviving daughters and the pedigree connecting from Mohammed’s lineage to the royals of Europe is likely an invention of some jazzed genealogists in the later times.

Rob on July 23, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    You’re probably right. Even if the story is true, I can’t be bothered by a that-far-back ancestor. People love pageantry and the British monarchy does pageantry magnificantly well and that’s why it’s still around.

    Miranda Rose Smith on July 24, 2013 at 7:17 am

So the the “Royal” family of Britain has the Arab Mohammed (sand be upon him) in their blood line? WTF?! What meds are you on Debroleena? Just kidding but I have NOT heard that. Hard to believe.

Alisia S on July 23, 2013 at 5:38 pm

Yeah, if we’re gonna worship royalty we might as well throw in “Queen” Noor (now if that doesn’t want to make you barf then I don’t know what will).

CornCoLeo on July 23, 2013 at 5:43 pm

Excellent post Debbie and hopefully you’re feeling better. You just hit the nail on the head about how I and a bunch of people I know fell about the royal birth. I really could give a rats butt about the whole affair and the constant yammering of the presstitutes(Faux Snooze included) has only made it worse. Sure both Prince William and Kate seems like nice people but who would want a grandpa like that cad sucmbag Prince Charlie. That and the fact that the tyke will also have a horse faced step-grandma in Carmilla. She makes the First Wookie, er I mean lady look beautiful. The only thing that happened that happened this week that I give a darn about is when Dennis Farina died. The royals just don’t impress me.

Some morons might want a king. I maintain most of us don’t. It’s bad enough we have to sit through all the news of this stuff while real things are still out of control and not addressed. Friend of mine posted an article off the UK Mail about how so many judges award custody of abused children to their abusers. Stuff like that goes on all the time, while jerks like Stevie Wonder are busy trying to boycott a state over some thug who the world is better off without.

samurai on July 23, 2013 at 6:38 pm

I have only had one migraine my whole life. I was sitting in class and started getting dizzy. Then I started seeing bright spots. Then the pain started. O. M. G. I thought my head was going to explode. I don’t EVER want to go through that again. I’d rather be tortured by some of Mo’s cousins.

Jethrine B on July 23, 2013 at 6:42 pm

    Yep. I used to mock people with migraines thinking they were just big babies with a headache, then I started having them in my mid-20s. Unbelievable pain. I would just go into a dark room, curl up in a fetal position while every heartbeat or slightest movement was sending waves of throbbing pain, like my head was being split in two by a hammer and chisel. It would lietrally bring me to tears.

    In my case, tuned out, I think, to be sensitivity to red wine and aged cheese, which, as an Italian, I consumed quite liberally and often. So upon kicking my Gorgonzola and Chianti habits, never had one since.

    I know what you mean. I had my first a few months ago. It started with this sparkly weirdness in my right eye. Since I have a history of extreme eye issues, I went to the doc. The pain was unreal. I have had more since but never with the sparkles. Apparently, the only time I get nauseated is just before a migraine.

    Italkit on July 24, 2013 at 7:37 am

Might as well get used to the royals — they’re going to be around for a while. Poll after poll shows that about 80 percent of the British people prefer to retain the Monarchy. Yes, I know. The Queen doesn’t have to worry about any elections. But public opinion does matter, more than one thinks. A highly unpopular monarchy, regardless of country, is often not long for this world.

As for British commoners, they see the Monarchy as an occasional royal pain, but they’re far from pulling an Oliver Cromwell.

Debbie, I think that is extrapolating it too far. Obama voters may love Big Government but we can’t blame this strictly on liberals and welfare queens.

It is not about yearning for a dictator . It is more about the dumbing down of Western culture and discourse.
The same reason there are like a million “Real” Housewives on TV and every gossip magazine talks about Brangelina, is why this is a story.
You might remember that at the beginning of the Reagan Era, The Charles and Lady Diana Wedding was a huge story and was broadcast to millions on TV back in the day. Forward to the late 90s and her death was a huge story and followed by these same people.
It is lack of intellectual culture and just sheer nostalgia for anything that seems like a fairytale.

sanjay on July 23, 2013 at 7:38 pm

Like another reader above, I’m sorry that you were ill, Debbie and I’m glad that you are better.

As for the main topic of the post, it is spot on as well as all the supporting comments. I can’t think of anything to add.

JeffE on July 23, 2013 at 7:57 pm

Ummm … 17 million people watched the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana during the Reagan era. While 22 million did watch the Prince William/Princess Kate wedding, the population of America was almost 100 million less back then, plus the William/Kate wedding was in daylight hours during U.S. time, unlike the Charles/Diana wedding that took place in the middle of the night. Also, I fully recall Charles and Diana and their kids being huge topics of media coverage during the Reagan and Bush years, as well as coverage of their troubled marriage, separation, divorce, Diana’s activism and then her death. And this was before the media went tabloid thanks to the talk show boom of the 90s and the reality show epidemic afterwards, plus all the cable and Internet “news” outlets. Had the media in the 80s been anything like it is now – with all the different outlets and the lack of pretense of being anything substantial – Charles and Diana would have been bigger than all our reality stars (let alone legitimate entertainers) combined. And again, all – or at least mostly – during the Reagan – Bush era.

Sorry. Attempting to tie the publicity of the royals with Obama political/cultural trends and changes when Charles and Di attracted even more attention during the Reagan/Bush era doesn’t mesh with reality. Especially when you consider that William and Kate are much more telegenic than Charles and Di ever were.

Oh yes, and not just Charles and Di either. During the 1980s, we actually cared about who the Prince and Princess of Monaco were, remember? They attracted huge – though obviously not as much as Charles and Di – attention from the American public. These days no one in America talks about those folks anymore. So if anything America is less concerned with the royals now than they were during the Reagan/Bush era. America loved the royals – and their MediCare and Social Security and other government programs!!! – then just as much as they do now. Useless to pretend otherwise.

Gerald on July 23, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    Gerald, here is the problem. You launched attacks on the latest Martin thread and did not respond when challenged. In general this is considered bad form.

    Do you plan on continuing this type of behavior?

    skzion on July 23, 2013 at 10:17 pm

Hell, my ancestors left “Great Britain” and fought TWO wars to kick them OUT of America! Their IQ-challenged monarchy needs to come to an end. They can focus on being English – and get out of Scotland, Wales, Ireland etc. who can recapture their own languages and cultures demeaned by the “British” and stop kissing the asses of the “emperor who has no clothes”. Prince Charles looks like a lifeless fish, and by his own admission, never loved Diana Spenser. What a LOT of PHONIES!

Thank you to my ancestors who saw the truth and stopped it in its tracks in 1776 and their second attempt to force their monarch on us in 1812.

GG on July 23, 2013 at 9:02 pm

fyi: England is not rules by the monarchy anymore. a prototypical parliamentary Democracy. In fact England was one of the first to start restricting powers and questioning the divine right of kings.
It is strictly a ceremonial; a tie to a glorious past. The British people themselves question if the supporting of the Royal family is still relevant.
The point being, it is a soft story that many in the World have come to love. A fact that is quite disgusting for sure and never fails to make me nauseous.

sanjay on July 23, 2013 at 9:27 pm

I sharply disagree, Deb. The new media cares; most Americans don’t give a flying fig.

However, you are right that most Americans would rather suck at the government teat than work.

Jonathan e. Grant on July 23, 2013 at 9:36 pm

I should correct my remarks. The Americans don’t care about the British royals but most would never rise up today to even write a letter to the editor because they are either too lazy or “they don’t want to make waves.”

Jonathan E. Grant on July 23, 2013 at 9:41 pm

The fawning over Royalty in Britain is disgusting. They should dissolve that nonsense and come into the 21st century. To watch so many American women fawn over them is revolting. No wonder so many guys can not find decent women. They all want the government to take care of them and live an opulent life with no worries.

England the same country that recently banned a young man from my nephews school because he had Israel stamp on passport. The poor guy had a Summer job in England and turned away by a Muslim. I wonder what the new baby royal will think when his country falls to Islam and Sharia. I can tell you neither I nor my offspring will help them this time.

Glen benjamin on July 23, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    Dear Mr. Benjamin: WHEN Britain goes Islamist and Sharia is the law of the land, all the people who called for BDS sanctions against Israel will get their comeuppance. But it will be a disaster for the U.S. and Israel and millions of innocent, decent people will suffer hideously.

skzion:

Sorry, I don’t comment every day like I used to when I had more free time. So if I don’t get your replies when I am on, then I don’t get them, bad form or not. But on the general topic of Trayvon Martin I say now what I first said when Ms. Schlussel first dealt with this issue last year: chase me down in the middle of the night in your car and without hesitation I shoot you dead the second you get out of it. Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. In New York, 4 teenagers with baseball bats decided that they wanted to beat this kid up, but the kid was able to get back home and inside his house before they could get his hands on him. So these fellows figured that it was a bright idea to bang on this guy’s door and scream threats about how they were going to batter the kid and rape his mother. The kid’s father comes out with his gun, demands that the thugs leave his property and they refuse. The ringleader makes a move for the father’s gun so the father blasts him in the head. The father did time (primarily because the gun was unregistered) but he, his wife and kid are alive and aren’t suffering from the effects of baseball bats to the head. It was the right decision. Do you disagree?

If I get your reply while I am still on, great I will respond. If I don’t, don’t take it personal.

Gerald on July 23, 2013 at 10:49 pm

    Not quite sure what Trayvon Martin has to do with the royal baby.

Oh yeah. Forgot something else.

“Whether it was the Kennedys or their trashy, low-life imitation, the Obamas …”

And what is it that makes the Kennedys any less trashy or low-life than the Obamas? Joe Kennedy was a gangster, literally a participant in organized crime. Bobby, John and Ted Kennedy committed adultery with anything that moved, primarily because Joe instructed them to do so. You want classless? Parading the actress that you are publicly having an affair with before the press and having her seductively sing you “Happy Birthday.” I am certain that Jackie Kennedy was very amused to see it all over the TV news the next day. Want more classlessness? Chappaquiddick!

Sorry, but that makes for a solid 0-3 on this effort.

Gerald on July 23, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    Gerald, you expect anyone to read this frivolous tripe?

    Several people have taken your pompous arguments apart on the last Martin thread. Like Hussein you seem to think that a rhetorical salvo coupled with transcendent self-confidence is persuasive. It isn’t.

    skzion on July 24, 2013 at 12:08 am

    I saw Jacqueline Bouvior Kennedy Onassis, may she rest in peace, in person, once in her life. The story is too long and not interesting enough to write out, but I’m telling you: That woman had class TO HER FINGERTIPS!!!!

    Miranda Rose Smith on July 24, 2013 at 7:34 am

Well skzion I gave you an hour. Gotta split. Maybe we can trade written fisticuffs with each other another time.

Gerald on July 23, 2013 at 11:42 pm

    Well, Gerald, I cannot always respond when you happen to be around. But you see, this is not necessary. A blog is not like a phone call that must be attended live by all parties.

    You have annoyed me with your ridiculous excuse for rudeness. While I have previously defended you, that ends now. No fisticuffs are necessary.

    skzion on July 24, 2013 at 12:04 am

One more thing about that despicable rag, the NYDN, they are calling for Weiner to drop out of the mayoral race because of his latest sexting sexcapades. They are being very vocal about it.

Italkit on July 24, 2013 at 7:45 am

oh, and the WaPo article was buried far down the page.

Italkit on July 24, 2013 at 9:08 am

Glad you are feeling better Debbie. You said a mouth full and I agree 100%. Let those a**holes in England worry about their ‘royal babies’. We have enough of our own. Thanks once again for a job well done.

Naomi R. on July 24, 2013 at 9:13 am

Generations of children raised in front of constant media bombardment creates mindless zombies that only want to consume more mass media. Try turning off the TV, computer, and phone for a night and see how nice the world can be.

“Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.”
Edmund Burke
(http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/keywords/repeat.html)

We’re halfway there towards a new ROYALTY in the U.S., aren’t we? We have a wannabe dictator in the highest office – DC, another one in the largest city – New York, and all we need is for all the lesser ones to swear fealty when 2016 arrives for the Big Guy to demand a 3rd Term a la FDR.

PS: Now that FedGov thinks it can DIVERSIFY everyone’s neighborhood by decree, where will you go to escape this insanity? I’m considering the Australian Outback to mine Opals. I think they still believe in private property?!

BTW…Can’t blame the newborn for his parents and Grandparents.

Dennis on July 24, 2013 at 9:48 am

    Dennis, you may like Coober Pedy in SA for those opals. But you’ll have to live underground…it’s wicked hot there. Lovely but hot.

    And perhaps (in the upcoming election) they will get rid of that git PM Kevin Rudd. Yes, he’s said “no boat people” but anyone with a brain can see that coming from a ALP Libtard is pure politics…there may be an election and the Labours may be given their walking papers…if Australians wake up. I’d be there now but for the bugs and quasi-socialism.

    As for Gerald…why even bother? The issue with him is always the issue with him…race sensitivity…which means he can never be objective or use his full brain. Now I agree with him on the despicable Kennedy’s but far be it from me to get in high dudgeon because they were compared to the disgusting Obama-Putins like he was.

    But here we are again…back at the problem that always is his problem…race sensitivity. Second verse, same as the first. Rinse, lather, repeat.

    Skunky on July 24, 2013 at 10:41 am

      Wow! Skunky, that was a great note.

      Currently, there is a potential massive shale oil field being explored just near that city of Coober Pedy. Specifically, ARCKARINGA BASIN, GORGON PROJECT / CHEVRON, LINC ENERGY.

      Investment research? Yes. Why? I’m not real happy about what POTUS thinks is good for all of us here. One must have options for one’ life and liberty.

      Dennis on July 24, 2013 at 1:21 pm

      I’m afraid you’re right about Gerald, Skunky. It’s too bad. He actually has potential.

      skzion on July 24, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    Dennis, that classic quotation is from George Santayana, not Edmund Burke.

    Burke is most well known for another classic quotation: “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for enough good men to do nothing.”

    Ralph Adamo on July 24, 2013 at 12:30 pm

      Hey Ralph!

      Please take a look:

      http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/keywords/repeat.html

      “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
      George Santayana

      “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.”
      Edmund Burke

      I saw both quotes, same page LINK, and chose Burke’s quote.
      I liked the word “HISTORY” over “PAST”. It seems to have more “GRAVITAS”…n’est pas?

      Dennis on July 24, 2013 at 1:06 pm

Not much to add and repeat what has been said. Most Americans are hero worshiping idiots. My America is no more except for a few of us who are dinosaurs.

Robert A. on July 24, 2013 at 9:58 am

I heard they were going to name him “Trayvon Mohammed”, you know, to promote world peace.

“The movement that calls itself, “The Tea Party,” is the machine of some wealthy Republican consultants out of California, headed by Sal Russo–a man who paid himself millions out of “Tea Party” profits. Cha-ching!..”

That’s good to know about the blood sucking Russo character, DS, but the TP is not one movement, but multiple movements with a common goal, and with multiple leaders, and so isn’t “headed” by any one person. Most of us in the TP were complete political rookies and have thus made plenty of mistakes (e.g. Rubio,etc) but have been learning fast, and had successes like Mike Lee(Cha-ching back at you) and Ted Cruz, Cha-ching yourself again. As soon as you direct all of us TP rubes toward the movement you found that’s perfect, we’ll shut down our TP and climb aboard.

WTPW: What was the common goal? Seems to me like there are multiple “goals” none of which has been close to being achieved. Agreed on Ted Cruz. DS

waynesteapartyworld on July 24, 2013 at 11:36 am

    Common goal = reducing the size and power of government; not slowing its growth or ‘finding savings’ or making mythological ‘cuts’ in the budget increases, but zero out entire departments, such as Dept.of Education, IRS, and etc.–The TP wants to snatch the Ring-of-Power away from the D.C. Gollums, but it ain’t gonna be easy.

    waynesteapartyworld on July 25, 2013 at 8:05 am

Debbie

It is certainly true that the Queen has never visited Israel, and moreover would not be allowed to by the antisemitic foreign office. However both Prince Philip and Prince Charles have made visits ‘in a personal capacity’. In the case of Philip I believe it was in connection with a ceremony for his late mother’s war time acts and in the case of Charles it was for Rabin’s funeral.

ED: That they went out of their way to make sure it was known the visits were “in a personal capacity” is spitting in the eye of Israel and Jews worldwide, and they can take their “personal visits” and shove them. DS

Edgar Davidson on July 24, 2013 at 12:08 pm

Interesting observation from a just released book:

“The announcement via email from Kensington Palace noted he was present at the birth and was ‘delighted’. And no wonder. The birth of an heir to the throne is a rare and special event full of historical significance as well as personal joy. But it is also the most intimate time in a couple’s life. Creating a new life signifies a new beginning. Neither Kate nor William will ever be quite the same again.

There was profound sadness too that his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, wasn’t there to share his happiness and would never meet or enjoy her grandson. His new status as a father is also the surest way to exorcise much from his early troubled years. William has grown up knowing he had to keep his feelings under wraps. He barely trusted anyone and only reluctantly learnt to live in the spotlight. Kate’s devotion, confidence and love has helped him have confidence in his feelings. His son is the perfect catalyst to allow him to find even greater personal happiness.”

Their baby will mark the final stage in a moving tale of redemption that will give hope not just to future generations of his own family but also to the British monarchy. It is the inspirational tale of an extraordinary prince who has sought salvation in the ordinary.

And behind this happy story, however, lies an even more hopeful and inspiring message. The fragmentation of the family, with huge rates of divorce and rising number of children who have never known a committed father at all is deeply troubling. The damage this is doing to both individuals and society is incalculable. Even more alarming, however, is that those brought up in fractured family units so often replicate this unhappy pattern as they have no healthy family model upon which to draw.

If anyone seemed at one time to be caught in this trap, it was surely Prince William; second in line to the British throne, he was raised with every advantage, except what every child needs most, a secure, stable, loving family background. As Angela Levin explains, William’s parents, Diana, Princess of Wales and Prince Charles, had a disastrous marriage that formed a pattern of behaviour he was destined to repeat.

Among the many insights in DIANA’S BABY:

· How the Prince bravely faced his own emotional demons

· The Middleton family values he delights in embracing

· How Prince William overcame the destructive chain of a dysfunctional family”
