I hate monarchy

This is just a rant and not KDE related, if you are reading this from the planet you can just skip it.

Well, the title says it all, i can not stand monarchy, those people that break the rules, "law is the same for everybody" they say, yeah, that's why there's someone out there that will be the ruler of my country just by having been born, i think i was not given that right when i was born.

My hate has always been big, but today there was the drop that made the glass full; the princess entered the hospital to give born to a new bloodsucker from Spanish monarchy and TV is making connections to the hospital each fives minutes just to report there are no news!!! Come on! I don't give a damn if he is born or not, but i could *try to understand* a connection if the new prince has been born, but just stopping a movie each 5 minutes to tell there's no news is just insane!

Viva la República!

Hehe, that makes me remember that the only person I've met who liked monarchy was a boy whose father was a periodist that covered monarchy.

I've never understood why someone would want a family to literally suck our money without doing anything but it is better not to talk about it because we (catalans) will be told to be avaricious.

I hope time will give us some republic (and more ways to be free ;).

Bye!

Hey! I come from denmark, we has also recently gone through the whole new-born-prince thing. Anyway, the worst is yet to come, after the little bugger pops out, they will *continue* to bring pointless updates for about a day or two. I mean, stuff like that he had his medical examination done will become frontpage headlines and the tabloids will imply a medical emergency is under way. bbye.

Fully agree! Another problem in my opinion is that they do not look into their history - they have to stand by their history, they have to stand by the fact that their richness is build upon the death and the suffering of thousands of slaves and bondslaves. When they talk about their "great history" of their family, they have to talk about these times, too...

Sounds to me like what you actually hate is the media covering the monarchy. Unless you actually do have something against people giving birth. :P

And really if its not a monarch, you'll be hearing about football players or actors and what whacked-out religion and mis-matched marriage they're having this week.

Anyways Juan Carlos made the transition from Franco pretty painless, I think some annoying news is a small price to pay. :)

Solution: read good newspapers and don't watch TV. :)

And Spain still pays their royalty? The Queen of England "voluntarily" pays taxes and just lives off of all the property show owns I believe.

Man, you don't know HOW LUCKY you are to have an officially-sanctioned useless media-grabbing family that is powerless in practice. Without it, "little people" would invariably end up worshipping some authoritarian political animal or (God spare us) even a pope! UK and Nordic countries arguably demonstrate that a powerless, media-scrutinised royal family is a nice way to divert popular attention and maintain political stability.

Seràn capaços de "tocar" la constitució per Leonor, però no ho faràn per 7 millions d'espanyols que som els catalans... "manda huevos".

Nazionalistas: Devolved la pasta que con dos repúblicas y con Franco habéis sangrado a los andaluces. Luego, como si os la machacáis (verás que es fácil exaltarse y olvidar la Historia).

Perdón por el exabrupto (lo incluí a efectos dialécticos).

Ahora en serio y de buen tono: ¿aprobamos el Estatut que la "Salvadora " II República concedió a Cataluña?. Por favor, basta ya de nazionalismo que desde el sur apreciamos mucho a esa tierra de buena gente y bien yantar.
