All of us here are fairly patriotic Americans so I doubt that anybody here really gives a damn about the Royal Family. I care so little that it pisses me off that Google has deemed it necessary to infest my Google News feed about Royal Family BS. But just because I don’t care doesn’t mean I don’t have opinions.
That being said Prince Charles just has this smug little way about him that just screams at me to punch him in the fucking face. There is a guy I work with that closely resembles Prince Charles and whenever I see him in the hall I just want to run up and kick him in the ass just because. So my question to Max is do Brits in general share my sentiments concerning him. I always wanted to know that. We don’t run into Brits here to often. I worked for a brief period many years ago with a team of Brits and they were blue collar rough type of dudes. I could not conceive of those guys having any respect for a guy like Prince Charles whatsoever. But I failed to remember to ask my question so this opportunity is the closet I am to anybody from the motherland.April 7, 2019 at 7:04 am #66879KeeperParticipant
no feeling about Price Charles.
Did drink a lot of beer with some Royal Marines few times.
Let’s just say they won. Worked with the Brits while in Bahrain and Iraq good people with good Irish Whiskey.

Please do not misunderstand. My inquiry is no inictment of the British whatsoever. In fact what limited experience I have had with Brits has been so positive that I have a hard believing they WOULDN’T want to throw Prince Charles in the Thames River.April 8, 2019 at 9:10 am #66893MaxKeymaster
This is important?April 8, 2019 at 10:10 am #66895Scott GParticipant
I think the sarcasm font was left off the word “important.”

I’m guessing the same reason the Brits don’t throw Prince Charles into the Thames is the same reason Americans haven’t thrown Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, etc. into the Potomac. Nobody really cares that much about them personally.

Yeah, throwing someone into a river or punching them in the face because you don’t like the way they look (or their mannerisms) probably isn’t a widely held notion, and likely to get you into trouble with no moral ground to stand on.

I met Prince Charles once, in the Oosterbeek Hotel after jumping into Arhem. He’s always been a pretty cool guy. He is honorary Colonel-in-Chief of the Parachute Regiment.
I cannot recall exactly, but many of the Royals served. Not sure about Charles, but Andrew was a helo pilot in the Falklands I believe. William and Harry both served, obviously Harry went of the rails as a nutjob recently but whatever.
I don’t think about the Royal Family.
Just know, you would be paying less tax under King George than you are paying now. Enjoy your freedom, peasants!April 8, 2019 at 6:40 pm #66908
Of course it isn’t important… Not in the slightest. If there is way to express sarcasm on this forum I assure I do not know how to do it… not that saavy. I figured the nature of the question considering the company spoke for itself. It’s just something that has bugged me about him and your response has forever changed my life for the better… I know longer wish him to be punched in the face when I see him.
As for the Potomac I have admit that the notion of any of executive the tyrants in a very very long time being thrown into the Potomac gives me a chuckle. I will concede that I would not do it myself no matter how much they deserve it.April 8, 2019 at 7:38 pm #66911Joe (G.W.N.S.)Moderator

I would suggest (sarcasm)!
I have even used…in the most sarcastic way possible.

Okay. I don’t know… I guess I just write.
