I just saw on CNN today that China is attacking them for their coverage of some of China's recent foul ups. I guess China does not understand our first amendment.

The Monarchy is old and tired no matter what they do to try and appear modern. The Royal family is no better than you and I. They are figureheads at best. The British Empire is no more.

Yes. They are the living history of England, and Britain dare I say it. The Empire is gone, and they hold no real power anymore. At least, I think trying to wield any of that power would spell their doom. But we are all here on CR to celebrate our heritage. As a Reeves, I maintain that the Monarchy plays a very large part in my own heritage. I would see a King or Queen on the throne on my last day, if I had it my way. I hope my children and grandchildren (should I have any wink.gif ) will be able to say the same, as England without a Monarch is hardly England at all. As for the rest of Britain, well, they all had their own Monarchy's in their time. If they became independent, I don't know how they would go about reviving them, even if they wanted to.

oldraven;

As a Monarchist I agree with you the Empire is dead but it was replaced as you know with the Commonwealth of which the Monarch is the Head. Mainly the Monarch is a symbol of both continuity and tradition but within Britain itself they are the Executive Branch of Government with considerable powers. The main role is to advise and consent but they do have the power to disolve Parliament and they are the head of the Military. These powers of course are rarely if ever used.
When Scotland gains independence it will retain the present Monarchy because they desend from the Stewarts and I remember reading somewhere that the living
direct members of the Stewarts signed away all claims to the English and Scottish Thrones.

Yes. That's why I said "At least, I think trying to wield any of that power would spell their doom". That is to say, if they were to use some of the more extreme powers they have on paper, such as dissolving Parliament, the people would stand against them so fast their heads would spin. Government would rally the people against the Monarchy to hold on to control. I don't think it would take a lot for them to take a page from France's book.

Once again Law Enforcement get away scot free, after shooting down another unarmed black man, (why they’re not even going to loose their jobs). It doesn’t seem right to me.

It is called "Police State". Notice the number of shaved heads (visions of Nazi Storm Troopers) It is even beginning to happen in small communities. We have a trial coming up of a white Swat officer who shot and killed a young black woman who was holding a baby. The baby was wounded. (This was his second suspect killing.) He cries during his court appearances. I saw bullies like that in school. They get thumped on a little and they "cry for Mommy".

So far here north of the border we haven't had to many incidents like the one in NYC. and when we do the S.I.U. take over and usually, not always the constable(s) involved are charged. Our problem is with the Courts and the Justice system.Who are far to lenient with these offenders. Most of our police are fine and do a great job but its always the bad apples who seem to get away with it.

They may have to deal with Justice Dept and the Federal prison system on Civil Rights Issues yet!

With an election coming I would say say odds are the three are not out of the woods.

One of my other framed signs was:

"I'm with the Government and I am here to help you." A common joke at least in Govt. circles.

My oldest Daughter is artistic and did several for me.

My office was like "Casa D' Ice in Pa. though I had to be more careful. If you haven't seen it www.casadice.com

I know about the muscle shrinkage. I had lost a considerable amount of weight and was already thin. I am trying to put it back on as muscle before the end of August as that is the tentative date of my trip to Africa. I still can't shoot my heavy rifles. (460 and 375) I have a little over three months to load up on protein and work out.

What did you think os Casa D' Ice?

I was traveling , taking the scenic route, when I found it.
