Bollocks to Prince Charles

The bloody British monarchy strikes again.

This is what happens when a small group of elitist rich people interbreed over generations: you wind up with the British monarchy, Paris Hilton, and the Bush family. The fact that the British people continue to pay for these morons to make their royal pronouncements used to be beyond me; having watched Americans once again choose Bush, I now comprehend that I know nothing about human nature.

It seems that HRH runs an "elitist" household. The mind boggles at the idea that a monarch would run a democracy; still, his official statement in response to a former employee's complaints was chilling:

According to THE GUARDIAN:

The prince wrote: "What is wrong with everyone nowadays? Why do they all seem to think they are qualified to do things far beyond their technical capabilities?

"This is to do with the learning culture in schools as a consequence of a child-centred system which admits no failure. People think they can all be pop stars, high court judges, brilliant TV personalities or infinitely more competent heads of state without ever putting in the necessary work or having natural ability.

"This is the result of social utopianism which believes humanity can be genetically and socially engineered to contradict the lessons of history.
"


I guess I have two comments:
1) Um. Chuck. Other than the fact that your royal mum shat you out, you've got no technical capabilities to speak of.

2) This is America's future.

You also wind up with the DuPonts; Mellons; Stanfords; (and shame on your lack of objectivity on this one)--the fucking KENNEDYS

Incidentally, the Civil Lists and other Royal Prerogatives afforded the House of Hanover (first known example of politically correct behavior, the name change to Windsor) approximate 50 million sterling per annum. The revenue from the Crown Estates, afforded the Government by the Crown in exchange for the Lists and Prerogatives approximated 150 million sterling last year, a profit to the people of 100 million.

Hardly a drain on finances.

First known example of Lorraine not having her facts straight in the 25 years I've known her.

Shocking.
