11:39 a.m. ( Part II ) Sounds familiar !!! …

The following two comments from the reply string that followed a CTV report on the typically costly expenses of the security surrounding this ‘ historic ‘ visit pretty much sums up the reason why this centuries’ old conflict continues …

Montella09 ;

” Give us back our 6 northern counties and apologize for 800 years of colonial oppression and ethnic cleansing. Maybe then you might be welcome in Aire . ” …

Responded to by …

Scienceboy ;

” Stop blowing up innocent people and maybe the civilized world might take your demands to heart. To post this response to an article on a bomb plot to kill the Queen is an appalling , ignorant stance to take. The only good thing the IRA ever did was disband. Murdering terrorist scums. ” …

With such polar opposite view points such as these … One has to wonder if we will ever see an end to all this !!! … Not likely when ( … as in the current ongoing nonsense in the Middle East ) both sides of the equation choose to pass their anger on to the next generation …

This response to the article below has a somewhat more ‘ balanced ‘ , less confrontational tone ( IMO ) , to the centuries old dilemma ;

URU

” Why bother with having a Royal family anymore after the old centuries of ravaging other countries and colonizing them by force. In today’s free world anyone or any empire that claims control over other nation’s territories cannot be tolerated by any means. The Royal family is just claiming more problems for themselves as it was once considered a regime back in the old days , by robbing their own people and enforcing their rules and laws upon them. Let’s get on with the new world and take away their title. They are JUST A REGULAR FAMILY in today’s society which holds the wealth of people that were robbed by their ancestors.” …

*Morbnote ; Had to edit URU’s grammar and punctuation …

I must say … I have long said that the far too costly financial maintenance of what is essentially a ‘ figurehead ‘ monarchy is the single most contributing factor to the economic woes of Great Britain. Forbes Magazine put Liz’s net worth at $ 500 mil … But adds that she also benefits from ‘ enjoyable assets ‘ , such as $ 10 BILLION worth of real estate , Buckingham Palace ( $ 5 billion ) plus an annual ‘ stipend ‘ of $ 12.9 mil …

Then , of course , theres Prince Willy and the younger bro … Combined with a net worth of $ 46 mil …

The seeds are carefully cultivated to continue the conflict …
