I wonder....

Am I the only one who doesn't give a fuck about the royal family's newborn? Just curious....

It seems all the important things take second place, compared to stupid things that are guaranteed to take precedent.

Thank God (and 7 other women) I'm not corrupted! :P

The dumbing down of America has done wonders. Devo had it right all along: we're in a state of de-evolution. NOT ME! ^^

Well, since knowledge is power, I feel like as much as possible is being held from us, and we are being distracted from the truth with meaningless drabble. Seek and you shall find, but I agree on the process of de-evolution. Instead of moving forward, or even trying to do so, we keep stepping backwards, its frustrating isn't it?

Sometimes I feel I'm missing out on a lot of things, because I sure as fuck don't do much. But I see so many good things go to seed so fast and it sickens me.

Meh, I find that I mostly just miss out on news of people I dont care much about dying. lol
And I dont like being told what is popular because half the time it is tacky as fuck.
plus I have enough stress as it is without watching the damn news. lol

I don't give a shit. The only coverage about it I care for is The Onions because it's been fucking hilarious.
LupineAssassin

True. It's even more funny when some people mistake The Onion for a real newspaper. :P
Ultratails42

Yeah. Course The Onions existence provides me with one of my favorite games! "Is it a Onion headline or something something Fox News actually said?". Can also replace Fox News with Republican for equally funny results!

Now up here in Canada, that baby might be my king one day, so it's kinda important. But why the heck is it making the front pages in America? They're not your monarchy. You fought a revolution to oust them from your shores. If the king of some other country had an heir born, you wouldn't even hear about it. Why does a British royal baby rate more than a passing mention?

I also am not fascinated with such celebrity nonsense.
I've been told that because our national news is so New England-based, and because New England culture is itself so Anglophiliac, that any shtuff that concerns Britain/England/The Royal Family is instantly made national news in America, only because it's deemed so important to the people who live and work in New England and NYC esp.
Kind of like anything that involves the Kennedy family. Did we need a solid month of wall-to-wall coverage of the death of JFK Jr? No. Then why'd we get it all? Because New England.

I sorta care, sorta...but it's something the media needs to leave them alone. (they were outside of the hospital waiting)
Since they don't want to have the baby crying now do they?

You're absolutely right. I don't even know why it concerns us. Polish news TV cancelled a popular daily satirical news summary programme only because this was apparently such a huge event and they were so excited about it... WTF... It's not even happening over here... And it's just... a birth... And this all looked like some reality show... ><

Whilst we're not beholden to the Royal Throne (*flush*), the Crown does represent and set the tone of relations between our biggest political and trading partners, so it is of some interest...

Besides, this is one distraction we do need, particularly with the recent tragedy of a plane accident, and the ongoing travesty of the know-nothing, do-nothing Republicans, who think they're doing America a lot of good by screwing every American repeatedly, over and over again.

Right now, we need some good news.... A Royal baby will do in a pinch. :)

A royal mix too, perhaps? I love the fact we're pro-Democrat. ^^

Republicans: "We should tear down Obamacare, so people don't have to pay less, and the Government doesn't save." ("It's more profitable for us.")
Republicans: "We should stall as much as possible on student loan interest rates- After all, they should pay their loans for decades, instead of years!" ("It's more profitable for us.")
Republicans: "We believe in the Family. Why should we give anyone Food Stamps?" ("It's more profitable for us.")
Republicans: "We believe in Smaller Government-- We want every woman to endure pregnancies, regardless of rape or health! And ladies, God intended you to be raped!" ("And it's still more profitable for us.")

Pro-Democrat? Hell, I've been registered Democratic since at least 1984, voted in all but two elections, since then! :)

I was raised to be socially Liberal-- Of course, I'm a Democrat! :)

You saw how fast Refucklicans wanna impeach Obama? Sheesh! They wouldn't be pulling this shit if he were white. Obama's one of the reasons I enlisted in the Army. I NEVER would've enlisted when W was in office.

*nodnod* You can guess who was using the "N-word", then! :P

Oh, and back to the Royals....

Royal baby = GOOD distraction...
Kim Kardashian = BAD distraction....

So, really... After all the Republicans' and the "Tea Party"'s crap slung at us... I'd happily take the birth of the next-to-next-to-next British King over the headache that is Washington, these days... :P

....And Republican mayors & mayoral candidates with bad behaviour... (Wiener and the San Diego mayor...)

So, let's say at least some good news has been gracing our headlines, for a change?

I find it kind of weird that it's such a giant deal in America while here in England it's just a sort of "In other news, Kate is pregnant" at the end of the news, and then not really mentioned again for a week

WE don't care about it, why is everyone else going nuts over it?

Though they did change the Laws of Royal Succession over it, so that was interesting. Even though it ended up being irrelevant anyway :P
