Skip to comments.An unwanted immigrant: This demented duchess
Posted on 05/28/2010 2:57:49 AM PDT by Scanian
It's not every day a com moner is graced with the personage of a card-carry ing, blue-blooded, bone headed duchess. But Sarah Ferguson irritably dragged her hips into the Javits Center yesterday at the crack of 8:30, and proceeded to whine, kvetch and play the victim in a British accent as impenetrable as Scotland Yard.
And, judging from the crowd she attracted, which coated the convention center like a lover's saliva on Fergie's well-traveled toes, the world's greediest, tackiest and brokest royal is quickly accomplishing a feat that has eluded her back home in England, where the weary populace is ready to lop off her head: She's royally cashing in.

So what. I like her and I think she’s hot. Not
every guy likes toothpick like models.
As for taking advantage of her husband’s “ROYAL” status to make money on it - GO TO IT.
If the royal-suckers-up are so demented as to want to spend money on their inebriation with this clan of inbred, arrogant, stupid, dull asses, let them!!!!
If the Brits were smart, they would strip the House of Hanover-Saxe-Coberg und Gotha-Windsor of all their loot and
holdings, kick their pompous equine-addicted butts out of Britain and bring back the Stewarts at 1/100th the cost and get a better bargain. They can’t have less functional brains than the Windsors (even a cabbage outdistances them in the I.Q. realm) and they come a lot cheaper.
British Royalty couldn’t get away with murder, rape, fraud, tax evasion, drunken driving, leaving pregnant women to drown in oldsmobiles and inciting violence against Jews.
That’s the sole prerogative of American Royalty.
Are you advocating that the Government should be allowed to simply confiscate private wealth and property?
A great analysis. Then on top of that, Orrin hatch just loved the murderous SOB.
Who is Sarah Ferguson?
The Queen is worth billions.
When Diana divorced Charles, she received millions in her settlement.
Sarah received about $20,000 when she divorced Andrew, and proceeded to lose $800,000 in a failed weight loss business here in the U.S.
Sarah wants to move to America and make some money. America is supposed to be the land of opportunity, so I say more power to her if she can make some money in the good ‘ole U.S. of A. this time around.
“British Royalty couldnt get away with murder, rape, fraud, tax evasion, drunken driving, leaving pregnant women to drown in oldsmobiles and inciting violence against Jews.”
You’re not serious are you?
I guess you are just referring to CONTEMPORARY British Royalty. All the above was pretty common in the old days - except for the car bit. The Tudors and Plantagenets didn’t have them. But at least the Plantagenets had CLASS and were really FEARLESS warriors for the most part.
In THAT case, I would have to agree with you. They are just guilty of gross stupidity and criminal consumption of national wealth - except maybe for being involved in killing Princess Diana.
On the other hand, by “American Royalty” I guess you refer to the Kennedy Klan. They aren’t royal in my book. But they are, apparently, in the minds of the American left - if you can consider the collection of distorted ganglia in their crania “brains”.
In the latter case I have to agree with you ALSO. They make the Windsors look good - and that’s not easy.
What the Winbdsors have is PUBLIC property. It belongs to the British People. To own Property you have to WORK for it.
I believe “work” is an alien term to the members of the Windsor-Saxe-Coburg-und-Gotha-Windsors.
“Down with the Hunnish usurpers!”
Restoration of the Stuarts placemarker.
Betcha that Sarah AND Diana BOTH did wonders for the bloodline.
Too bad the idiots running the show now will destroy the monarchy before the next generation gets a chance to run it.
Andrea you silver-tongued devil!
They could have done wonders for me!!!!
(Actually Queen Elizabeth was pretty hot when she was young.)
My sentiments entirely.
That little Dwarf William III was a stinking worm. King James II was a great man.
I’m a proud Jacobite!!!
I realized after posting that I had omitted the essential ingredient - a “/s” ...
Well you are mistaken. What House Windsor has is both public and private. The Queen USES, in trust, a great many things that are public property (for example, the crown jewels). HOWEVER, she also has a very large private fortune (based mostly on rents from land, property and investments) which the “public” (which is the way you say “government” when you actually support them taking something over) has no more right to than they have to my garden shed. Unless, of course, you wish to alter the law to allow that to happen. Personally, I think that would be a dangerous precedent to set. Would you allow Federal authorities to sieze private property owned by one section of society (the “rich”) in order to “redistribute” to the poor and needy? Oh wait...you do...
James II was an unwise King. And ultimately a cowardly one. In fact the Stuart dynasty generally was an unmitigated disaster, a fact readily apparent to the overwhelming majority of people at the time. A lot is said about the failures of the Jacobite rebellions, but ultimately they collapsed for one simple reason - lack of popular support. Most Britons just did not want them back on the throne.
Here's mine: As far as I know, the last few generations of the British Royal Family have been indeed, born in England, or Scotland. That would make them British,long removed from the house of Hanover-Saxe-Coberg and Gotha. Much the same way that I am personally removed from the house of various Scots who left in a hurry and landed here. That makes me an American.
Queen Elizabeth served her country in WWII when she didn't have to lift a finger. I suspect that she did that because she felt and thought that England was her country, her home and that was her duty. For that alone, I salute the Lady.
