Nobody's Opinion

Should Mitt Just Bow to the Queen?

Nobody Cares

I woke up this morning to an argument being held on the local radio station:

“No WAY should the US lower the flag to the Queen!” yelled some old guy.

“Well, Mitt insulted the Brits, it’s the least we can do.” said some lady.

This conversation came after yesterday’s big news: Mitt Romney wasn’t sure if the British were prepared for the Olympics, and he said so.

And the Prime Minister’s ego couldn’t take it:

We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.”

So…Cameron evidently thinks that Salt Lake City has only a few scorpions and a few red- neck rodeo ranchers on the map, sipping whiskey.

Oh my. Oh dear. An American insulted the Kingdom of the Queen. Even though, Mitt probably read about the problems they were having, (which were many)  in the daily London papers for a whole MONTH–you do not, critized the country who considers you at best…an ugly red-headed, pig infested, step-child. The Brits have made handbags with “The BIG FAT AMERICANS” on them, long before Mitt made that honest assessment, but really…now Americans are hated again.

And now…someone suggested we lower our flag to the Queen.

WHY? You start this ‘habit’ and down the path we go to having to lower our flags to every single nation on the planet. Imagine, lowering the flag to honor Ahmadinejad? And if the Olympics are held in Israel some day, can you see an Arab nation lowering their flag to honor the Jews? It’s a political firestorm just waiting for a match.

Really. Let the Brits honor the Queen…leave the rest of the world to compete in good faith. No flag should be lowered to any monarch or ruler in any country.

The big fuss that the Brits made about Mitt Romney just being honest about what they were ALL talking about, really shows how very fragile the big ego’s of the elites like Cameron, and the Mayor of London are.

They are acting…like fussy old women.


Here is a comment from some ninny:

Most teams briefly lower colors as they pass host nation’s leaders at opening ceremony. But despite what some see as blatant nationalism, the U.S. does not, and the century-old saga is a curious one.

Russia doesn’t either. At the games in China, almost no one did. But that doesn’t mean we can’t attack America, ONE MORE TIME.

England —Nobody Thinks you protest too much. Now…BRING OUT YOUR SHEEP, your lovely Queen, and try to uphold that stiff upper lip.

Politicians, must remember…Some men have actually worked for a living, and being a politician, with all the endless lying and sycophantic smiling that comes with it, is a hard lesson to learn.

Give the man some time.

If our Olympic flag bearer lowers that flag to the Queen…I pity him when he gets home….because if and when the Brits come back here…we will make SURE they lower their flag to us.

Men. They are acting like women. It’s getting silly.

  1. Sorry you feel that way. Maybe it would be better not to invest any flag with undue significance.

  2. I am just watching the opening ‘ceremony’. What a shambles. Suffragettes, for goodness sake. And the National Health Service with doctors and nurses dancing with glee at being the hugest (afetr the Chinese Army) organisation in the entire world, stacked with fat-cat Unionists. Look forward to your future. Joy and demand euthenasia from Obama-care. And a stone deaf drummer… female of course. And disabled kiddies trying to sing the National Anthem whilst trying to stop their arms flailing. Even the Union Jack troops could not keep in step.

    Whatever dork ‘designed’ and choreographed that fiasco and wasted MILLIONS of taxpayers’ Pounds, ought to be strapped to one of the goldolas on the London Eye and left there, whirling around until his bones are grey from the dank air.

    I could go on. The Queen looked like she had toothache, but it was probably a profound sense of a wasted life.

    All in all, Beijing 10, going for 21C Leadership; Barcelona 5 and going for bankrupcy; London 0. Gone to the dogs. (Don’t mention the mobile dunnies of the Sydney opening)(cringe, cringe).

    (PS. The ONE saving Grace?….Thank the Lord Harry the Queen doesn’t have the typical modern cleavage-fetish)

  3. Phew, Joyanna, being a bit princessy I see.

    Dipping the Standard is the way a troop salutes. It is not a deference but a statement of ‘peace’. And here you are making a belligerence out of thin air.

    But all the rest I agree with. It is all silly. Lots of noisy yobs populate the Old Country these days, even when they have been to Eton.

    I see their PM dropped the bell-end of his hand-ringer thingo the other day and hit some poor woman with it. Ructions. I am waiting for one of the ground to air missiles that they have installed on the roofs of people’s homes around the statium area to accidently go off. Now that will be put down to trying to outdo American cinema shootings.

    Medals all around will be the day’s Orders, even to the yobs on the track and field.

    Just a side note about yobs. One of the Oz swimming team beat-up another chap who can swim better and put him in hospital a year of two back. I guess he did it to show that our swimmer chaps can be as nasty as your ice skating gals. And he wasn’t even on drugs! Just plain old fashioned booze. Talk about letting the side down. Not a drop of caffeine in the bastard.

    But, back to the Flag. Over here we have been embroiled in squabbling. First there was the demand (with threats) that our flag be carried by a woman. Whines in strine about ‘fairness’ and ‘eeekwalletee’ filled our newspapers. Bugger ‘best’ in the Olympics, we had to give a woman the honour.

    Problem though. We couldn’t get a Committee together quickly enouh nor find enough women to sit on it peacefully. And the Oz budget won’t run that far anyway.

    With great courage, the whiners were told to stop whining and do some friggin’ winning for a change. But the Flag will be carried by a woman anyway. All 6’5″ of her.

    I forget what the second was. Oh yes. Our ‘girl-next-door ‘swimming team …. one very smiley girl ‘Champion’ (on account of her beating lots of other girls) was photographed looking (shock,,,, gasp….horror) FAT.

    OMG !!

    Wash mah mouf aht.

    How DARE anyone call a girl swimmer ‘FAT’. That is rude and villifying. Hurtful. These yobs in the press, don’t they know that the ‘approved’ word is Obese.

    • LOL! I just got finished watching the opening…what a lot of…fun I will have…It’s too tempting to NOT write about it. Mr. Bean…was MY highlight. And the FIRST thing I see is the Queen was doing her nails…LOL! Well, gee…I would think that by her age it’s all nonsense anyway. Thanks for filliing us in on all the gossip of the Aussies…they did look pretty good walking there in line, I’ll say that. Joyanna Adams
