sad but true
« on: January 02, 2023, 08:31:40 am »
Dear Santa:
When I was a child, my father cheated on my Mom and didn't love my family.
Later, my parents divorced.
Soon after, my mother died in a car accident.
My brother and I could only live in my grandma's old house.
Grandma's sister was an alcoholic.
The whole family lived on my grandma's savings.
Grandma recently died.
My Uncle Andy is barely keeping himself out of jail from day to day.
My brother left home and won't talk to us any more.
Dad, now 73, had to go out to work to support the family and eventually he is going to want me to do the same thing.

Yours sincerely,

Prince William

Sounds like that Oprah special he was on where they went on and on about how oppressed they are...

That whole charade of Royalty makes me shake my head. All they are today is symbolic figureheads leeching off of their people and living well. Their amassed fortune could probably give every citizen an nice piece of change to spend. And the brother who left home should go back there, particularly since he doesn't seem to like it here. Maybe he's a plant to get even from that little rebel rousing we did a few years ago.
