Of Kings and serfs

I think all this present and past fuss over U.K. royalty is just so much archaic nonsense.

In the royal line, one is privileged simply by birth.

This gives the royal family members no intelligence or morality; they’re born just like the rest of us: stark naked.

Somewhere a system was instituted wherein the king rules all and the serfs pick up the scraps from their banquets.

Oddly, this same system is experienced within the kingdom of the U.S.A.

Our royalty involves politicians, special interests, corporations, Wall Street, the wealthy and others who feed off the opulent banquet tables the delicacies provided by the labor of those below their ranks.

Money elects our leaders, yet campaign finance reform is dead. They bathe in tax loopholes, yet no tax reform.

Politicians legislate their own salaries, pensions and perks.

Yet the same group of royalty seek to reduce entitlements (under the guise of reform) within Social Security, Medicare and attempt to totally eliminate universal health care, an idea so important to so many.

Not a peep is expressed in reforming their own entitlements.

I could go on and on. Either you get what I’m saying or you don’t.

Or you may be one of those who seem to be saying, "I’ve got mine, ‘expletive’ you."
