The new “bombshell” interview with former royal family members Harry Windsor and Meghan Markle aired and I just can’t help but wonder why anybody in the United States cares.
I thought Americans stopped caring about the British royal family after we whooped their butts in the Revolutionary War.
But apparently, that’s not the case. Millions of people tuned in to hear what Harry and Meghan had to say about their departure from Buckingham Palace and the insider politics of what it means to be a part of that family.
I can’t help but ask why?
What is it about a royal family—one from another country, no less—that fascinates Americans?
Is it a problem with our upbringing?
Are we taught to romanticize kings, queens, princesses, and princes?
Regardless of the reason, the fact remains that too many Americans are paying attention to the wrong things – and near the very top of that list is the British royal family.
While America Is Enraptured With Royals… THIS Is Happening
We’ve got Congress railroading $1.9 trillion in legislature through with so much pork in it – that calling it can hardly be called a COVID stimulus bill anymore.
It seems like absolutely NOBODY in the press can do basic math, because if they did, they would be reporting on just how terrible this bill is.
If the government wanted to give $2,000 to every American, that comes out to be about $730 billion. If they wanted to give $3,000 to every American, it comes out to $1.095 trillion.
But that’s not what they’re doing…
They’re giving $1400 to MOST Americans (not all) and that comes with a price tag of about $500 billion.
The bill itself is $1.9 trillion, begging the question: Where the #*$&@ is the other $1.4 trillion going?
Why isn’t anybody talking about that?!
This is supposed to be a COVID relief bill, but only about a QUARTER of the budget is going to Americans…
Well, some of it is going to illegal immigrants who live here too, but that’s a discussion for another day.
All this crap is happening in DC…meanwhile our headlines are plastered with Harry and Meghan.
Is this by design?
Are We Being Distracted On Purpose?
Do Americans really care more about people that have no impact on our lives than they do about their very own government fleecing the taxpaying public out of billions upon billions of dollars to fund their pet projects?
It sure seems that way…
And this isn’t an admonishment of Harry or Meghan themselves. I’m sure they’re good people – especially Harry, who was once captured on video during his time in the British military service, running towards the sound of gunfire rather than away from it.
There’s something to be said about a man who was born with the world’s most famous silver spoon in his mouth running towards danger with his fellow troops rather than away.
No, this isn’t an admonishment of them…
It’s a rebuke of Americans who waste their time fantasizing and paying attention to FORMER royals instead of what’s going on with their very own government.
Maybe if more Americans cared about the utter lunacy that is happening in the Capitol building right now that they do about what Buckingham Palace “insiders” are saying about how the queen is reacting to this “bombshell” interview, we’d be in a better place and our elected officials would actually do the job they were hired to do.
Which is to make sure that the American people’s freedoms stay intact…
Just an idea.
