Bowing and Scraping to Governor General Jean

Whooee! Well friends an' foes, everybuddy knows I'm a lazyass an' I recycle comments I make 'round about the boogeysphere an' use 'em fer sum o' my boog stories. Today, I left me a bigass comment over t' Popular Doctrine an' I'm re-postin' most o' that there comment up here fer today's boog.

I ain't sure if it was Adrian or Joseph who wrote the boog story. They ain't happy 'bout Gumner General Jean. The boog writer ain't jest bitchin' 'bout bluebloods, he's got a problem with Michaelle Jean's physical beauty.

And now our new ethnic little eye candy, Michaelle Jean, has urged us to do “urgent work in our own backyard'’ and not just in impoverished Third World countries. It’s not about the fact she may be right. It’s not even about the topic, which is interesting and valid in it’s own right. It’s about… well, look at her! It’s difficult to take seriously the words of a woman who’s job it is to do her little turn on the political catwalk!

Okay, I’m ’bout as fed up as anybuddy with Canajuns bowin’ an scrapin’ before bluebloods. The idea that sum people are worthy o’ respect, fealty, honour an’ hunnerts o’ millions o’ dollars simply due to royal birth is insultin’, obscene an’ anti-democratic.

I had my fill o’ ol’ Gumner General Clarkson an’ her high-falutin’ cocktail parties an’ bigass world travel at my expense. I ain’t too happy ’bout supportin’ General Jean’s lavish lifestyle, neither.

But, the troublem ain’t really with Mme. Jean. The troublem is with Canadee. There ain’t much traction fer dumpin’ the Queen. Until the get-rid-of-the-monarchy movement gathers sum steam, we’re stuck with bowin’ an’ scrapin’ an’ the oath o’ citizenship fer Canajuns sez –

“I swear (or affirm) that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Queen of Canada, Her Heirs and Successors, and that I will faithfully observe the laws of Canada and fulfil my duties as a Canadian citizen.”

If yer a immigrant Canajun citizen, you took that oath. That makes it impossible fer immigrant Canajuns t’ try gettin’ rid o’ the monarchy without jeopardizin’ their Canajun citizenship by breakin’ the solemn oath they took.

General Jean’s been flittin’ ’round Africa drummin’ up support fer a Canadee where a black immigrant can become head of state. She’s makin’ us look better’n we really are, sez I. She sez we gotta do more fer our own First Nations. She’s right, sez I.

Let’s get rid o’ the monarchy but let’s not send General Jean t’ the guillotine. She ain’t the monarchy. She’s jest a reminder.

Yores Trooly,

She's trying to do some good with a meaningless bass-ackwards position.

A little like those movie stars who do tours of war-ravaged african countries to bring them public awareness in the rich countries. They are doing good with their fame and fortune, trying to get first world navel-gazers to take a look at the world. That doesn't make it right that those movie stars are multi-millionaires, while the african kids are starving.

Maybe it is all about good PR, but hey, in the world of PR they could be doing worse things.
