The Queen Passes

 The end of an era is finally upon us.  Queen Elizabeth II passed away a little while ago.  Buckingham Palace announced announced on its website: 

The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.

Rest well, Queen Elizabeth.  You ran the race and ran it well.

What was so great about her? England didn’t grow or prosper during her reign. It simply declined and crumbled. Look at the absolute state of her dysfunctional family, her idiotic children and self-destructive grandchildren. That is her true legacy.

And the MSM is going to celebrate her as if she was this great leader with any actual real accomplishments. Making people feel good about the decay of Western Civilization is not an accomplishment.

She played a leadership role in bringing the UK out of their financial disaster created by WWII, which took years.

As a princess/teen, she was very involved in community service during the same war.

She was a class act.

@1:06 PM is not a class act by bad-mouthing the recently deceased.

1:06 pm Educate yourself. Viewing events in the prism of the last 24 hour news cycle or that last 24 years even is hardly an accurate depiction of history or a legacy of someone who lived for almost a century. I don't agree with everything she did. But to say she had no real accomplishments is simply ignorant of the facts. Have your opinion, sure. But don't ignore factual information.

This will be the biggest state funeral of this century. If Joe "gaffe" Xiden makes an appearance hopefully someone will duct tape his mouth, otherwise he will be a huge embarassment.

There will be pressure put on our ambassador there to obtain funeral invites for the WDC pols, so they can enjoy photo ops, scones and tea, etc. on our dime. Pelosi will be at the top of the list of "grieving" cynical politicians.

Imagine being an American and caring about European “royalty”

2:01, British economists estimate the Crown benefits the British economy 20 times over for every tax dollar (pound sterling) that supports it. The Royals are a great value.

I once heard a funny story about QE being a feminist. Some time back in the 20th century, she took a visiting Saudi King on a country drive in her Land Rover on one her her estates. She drove like an absolute mad woman. He supposedly refused to ever get in her Land Rover again. She did this to make a point against the Saudi law against women driving. He held firm in his convictions that women aren’t fit to drive.

Brits and Euros are currently paying some of the highest energy prices on the planet. Many are choosing between buying food and medicine and freezing this winter.

That’s girl power.

@2:01 - Sure, the Royal Family are on Welfare like D1 Athletes are on Scholarship. It costs England a little bit each year to keep the Royals fed and happy, but how much money does the world's fascination with Royals bring in each year in tourism? What's Disney World without the characters?

May God rest her soul. A beautiful and gracious lady whose life she gave in service.

Kingfish, if your donation requests are falling flat, it is most probably not because of you and the service you provide, but because of the idiocy of so many of your followers - prime example the ill-informed and mean-spirited 1:06, with a close second of the likes of angry conspiracy theorist at 1:56. Bonus: the immaturity of 1:55 - are you allowing 13 year-olds on your site?

@1:23 makes several excellent points.

Great Britain — which stood alone opposing Hitler for more than a year — didn’t get tens of billions of Marshall Plan relief. FDR, an effete man of the Left, was so offended that the UK had colonies, he drove very hard terms on Lend-Lease, and later, direct aid in the form of loans. (West) Germany, which plunged the world into chaos, was saved by the Marshall Plan. France received billions in free money; they didn’t even fight, except for on the Kraut side.

Great Britain? It paid off its debt to the US in 2005. Watch season 1 of “The Crown.” The weight of the world was put on the shoulders of a 20-year-old girl. And the way she dealt with it over 70 years speaks for itself.

If an alien race had come to Earth last week and demanded “Take us to your leader,” Elizabeth II would have been the only choice.

Godspeed, Your Majesty.

The most influential event in Queen Elizabeth's life was her uncle's abdication. Therefore she determined to live a life of honor and duty to country, contrasted to many of those around her who lived dissolute lives.

@4:16 PM 1:56 PM here - no conspiracy theory at all, but rather 70+ years of life's experience has taught me what to expect.

People who raise the "conspiracy theory" flag are usually leftist/progressive fools.

The truth hurts, as it should.

New King Charles III is a pu$$y climate priest who will have to battle the new PM Truss, a conservative bent on permitting fracking for more gas and oil to relieve England's suffering citizens from reliance on hippie energy.

I can remember when at least three stars of As The World Turns passed away. And most of our mothers and aunts wept and wailed for days.

@4:56 —

Another excellent point.

Edward VIII - selfish, Hitler-loving bastard that he was - set this train in motion.

She didn’t seek the Crown. It was forced on her by a Nazi-sympathizing sociopath who thought with his dick.

And another thing, to the poorly-educated types who thump their chest & say, “Duuurrrr, monarchy is stupid! USA! USA!”

You people should be on your knees thanking God Almighty that this country is a product of the British Empire. Take a look at every nation on Earth that was once a British colony, and compare it to its neighbors that weren’t.

The United States is not the country it is without its British roots.

No, we don’t have a monarchy, and that’s a good thing.

But show some fucking respect. The UK is our greatest ally.

Better yet, show some fucking grace.

Here ya go KF:

• Opinion writers from The New York Times, Atlantic and New York Magazine openly celebrated the death of Queen Elizabeth on Thursday
• Tirhakah Love, senior newsletter writer for New York Magazine since December, devoted his evening update, Dinner Party, to the death of the queen
• Love celebrated her death, describing someone who has been 'sucking up the Earth's resources' for 96 years
• 'I'm supposed to be quiet or, better yet, actually mourn what was a barely breathing Glad ForceFlex trash bag? Please, no,' he wrote
• University of Michigan professor Ebony Elizabeth Thomas said thoughts of Diana and Meghan kept her from feeling any sadness about the monarch's death
• Lyndsey Boylan, unsuccessful candidate for Manhattan Borough President, chimed in and intimated that her Irish grandparents would be pleased
• Many tweets zeroed in on the effects of colonialism under the queen's reign and painted her as a violent tyrant

You censored comments much less harsh than above but I’m sure you’re more than willing to post this woke crap written by leftists. :)

All of you asses that want to find fault with a person who actually made a positive change in this world need to remember, your ass will be remembered for being who you are…think about that if you can look in the mirror….if you can’t then you’re too stupid to make a positive difference in the world.

In February 1952 my brother and I as toddlers (Army brats) were living in Cambridge, England. Our parents learned of the schedule of the King George VI funeral train, en route to London from Sandringham House (Castle/Royal Estate), so we went down to the tracks and waited for the royal funeral train.

It came by, we waved, and then Princess Elizabeth waved back. Memories.

RIP Your Highness.

We have some really interesting historians here, really interesting. My favorite is the fellow who thinks West Germany was the enemy in World War II. Not far below him are those who have the inightful comments to the effect that Prince Charles, now Charles III is a "dick", that Franklin Roosevelt was effete but despite that drove hard terms for Lend-Lease. All interesting comments and historical insights. I just hope these people don't post these things on sites that might be read by people in other places. They could make Mississippians seem ignorant.

Under her reign, their capitol city of London never had water issues on the scale of Jackson, Mississippi.

Great Britain should bring the royal family together and give them some money and tell them that when it runs out get a job. All the palaces etc should be turned into tourist attractions. Windfall for the government. No need for royalty! Too much maintenance!

KF loves him some Royals! Suppresses speech critical of the royals (the Twitter commies would love KF!) while allowing 3:18 PM’s post “British economists estimate the Crown benefits the British economy 20 times over for every tax dollar (pound sterling) that supports it. The Royals are a great value.”

What a joke! If Pete Buttigieg said Joe Biden is a great value to the economy, we would all understand why Pete Buttigieg said this; and everyone with common sense would understand that Pete Buttigieg would be full of s__t!

Bet KF loves him some Kennedy’s as well. That’s okay KF. We all have weaknesses but your reporting on local issues is second to none!

As yesterday closed out, it was good to see the 'green teeth, meth' guy make an appearance (10:53). But, for some reason he failed to mention Niknar; therefore, his observation is incomplete.

PS: I'm over 70 and have never seen anybody with green teeth. My neighbor is a dentist and he says he hasn't either.

Royalty who are worshipped in America are some politicians, HoWood stars, sports figures and singers, many of whom live for self gratification and die young.

But at least most of these had to do something competitive to earn their fame, whereas English Royalty are products of birth. Still, QE was a a model of service and grace compared to some of her relatives and predecessors.

@10:47 PMA - Wrong. The British monarch is the "head of state" and commander-in-chief of their armed forces. The PM is head of government.

I lived in England for 14 months and have been back on business no fewer than 25 times.

Neither the king nor the queen of the British Empire has jack to do with commanding the military.

How many times did you see Elizabeth's name associated with any joining of US and British military resources in our multiple engagements in the Middle East or elsewhere?

Well, no, Great Britain is not our greatest ally.

Anonymous said...

@3:11 PM - Sir, you are wrong. The head of the British Armed Forces by constitutional law is the King/Queen. The authority to issue orders and give commands to the military is delegated by the sovereign (King/Queen) to the Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Defence.

Quit guessing and get your facts right.

Let me help you if you don't have the skills to do research.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
