Can We Dispense, Now, With The Myth That They Feel Our Pain?

Honestly, I don't care about the frequency with which our King and his Queen vacation from the tough grind of their having to talk out of both sides of their mouths. And I've long since grown accustomed to taking a shiv in the back at the 4th rib from the Monarchy on a fairly routine basis. And I'm fine with them going places I'll never be able to afford to see or getting really cool stuff I'd never dream of being worthy of owning…but, can we please stop now with the nonsense of being asked to believe that our rulers are just private folk; simple and humble and understated like the rest of the riff raff that walks the streets and pays their bills?

Millions are out of work, millions are on food stamps, and millions more on welfare. Our idea of a vacation is the phone being disconnected long enough to miss a few days worth of collection calls. Do we really need to be asked for some level of interest or concern for what the Queen is doing in Europe when she could be here…spending that time on the poor folk from whence she wants us to believe she comes, and believes she is well-suited to relate to?

Enough already.
