"BLUE" JIMMY:  The Royal Wedding between Prince Henry Of Wales (Prince Harry) and Meghan Markle is on and will take place this Sunday May 19, 2018.  Royal Wedding hysteria is already taking place and USA Today has reported that an estimated 3 billion people will watch the ceremony, making it the most watched event in history.  More than the Apollo 11 moon landing ...

BLIND DOG OZZY:  ... Or that big black lady who fell off the coffee table on YouTube!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  You could say that roughly half of Planet Earth will be watching.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Yeah, but don't think this is a Cinderella love story where a royal prince falls in love with a girl from the wrong side of town and they make it work through the sheer magic of love!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Indeed, Meghan Markle may be a mixed-race former actress from Hollywood but she does have royal blood ... Rev. William Skipper, King Edward I Of Scotland and King Edward III Of England among them.  A cursory look through ancestry websites will tell you that Prince Harry and MM are actually distant cousins.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Oooo!  Taboo!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  But conspiracy writers such as David Icke and the late Jim Marrs will tell you that this is common among royal families and that they will almost never marry outside of royal bloodlines and are obsessed and keep meticulous records of them.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  But that's another blog!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  The focus of this article is on the fact that after the last glasses of champagne are emptied and the guests go home after a night of emperor-like luxury at The Royal Wedding, life goes on for the rest of us and non-royal folks like you and I will have to deal with stories, issues and events such as these in the coming year(s) in no particular order of importance:

  • The President Of The United States Of America is still under investigation for possible obstruction of justice and maybe even an ongoing criminal conspiracy.  Despite Donald Trump's cavalier attitude toward the investigation and descriptions of it as a "witch hunt," he still faces very serious legal charges which are not just going to go away.
  • Countries which have the United States on their s**t list either have or are trying to build nuclear weapons.  Some of these countries include: China; North Korea; Iran; Saudi Arabia and Russia ... which the U.S. is not exactly taking long, hot, romantic showers with in recent years.  If you're as old as me, you remember those drills in school where you you had to practice hiding under the desk in case of nuclear attack ... yeah, we might need those skills again soon.
  • Unarmed people of color are regularly being shot by police departments nationwide either through sheer prejudice or ignorance of the situation at hand.  There has been public outcry, demonstrations, marches and speeches by civil rights activists but almost zero convictions of officers involved, changes to department policy or legislation.  Ooops!  Sorry about your loved one.
  • Social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram sell your personal data to other companies for God-knows-what.  They can spin it, re-label it and describe it any way they want as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg did in the past year to Congress.  The truth is, when you post your personal information, habits, location on a social media website ... someone is getting it and storing it.  "1984" is here!
  • Millions of refugees of the civil war in Syria are scrambling to find food, shelter and the basic necessities of life but the Trump Administration characterizes these men, women and children as "foreigners looking for a handout."  Yet when American citizens in foreign countries are held hostage, in legal trouble or are in dire straits due to any number of circumstances,  the American Government demands swift resolution ... karma is a bitch!
  • The Posse Comitatus Act is gradually being eroded to the point where American citizens are not even aware that their Constitutional rights are being violated.  The act, which was passed in 1878, states that federal military personnel are not to carry out police actions within the United States.  The act was passed due to the fact that Union troops were basically f**king with a lot of people in the South in post-Civil War years.  If U.S. military personnel stop you at a checkpoint, question you, search you or your vehicle, detain you, they are violating your Constitutional rights.  They will sometimes try to get around the act by saying they are participating in a "joint effort" with local police.  If the President Of The United States Of America has not declared martial law, they are in violation.
  • The U.S. criminal justice system uses computer software such as COMPAS (Correctional Offender Management Profiling For Alternative Sanctions), to produce risk assessments for defendants in criminal cases.  It's basically like a computer-generated credit score for people charged with crimes and determines whether they are likely to commit crimes in the future.  Some states even allow judges to impose sentences based on these scores.  Investigative Journalism organizations such as ProPublica have pointed out that these risk assessments could be racially biased.  Readers of Philip K. Dick will note that this is the basis for the plot in his short story, "The Minority Report" which was made into the film "Minority Report" starring Tom Cruise, in 2002.  In this science fiction thriller, people are arrested for crimes they may commit in the future.  Have we come to this? ... Goddamn!
  • All your s**t could be gone!  Unless you are a borderline-psychotic, paranoid, conspiracy theorist like me, you probably don't back up all your info on paper.  But my research shows that various troubled governments around the world have effectively shut down The Internet, especially in times of turmoil, which has inevitably resulted in civil and human rights violations.  This has mostly been done in Third World countries in Africa and South America but it is not impossible to do in developed, industrial countries by manipulating Internet access speeds, rendering the Internet unusable and by merely blocking access to public computers in libraries, schools and universities.  Think it can't happen here?  If it does, you won't be able to bitch about it on your homepage, sparky!
  • Human trafficking is a real and timely threat which is vastly underreported in the mainstream media due to its unpleasant nature and the fact that the people most qualified to speak against it are bound and gagged in a stuffy basement as I write this.  This is not a poor people's problem.  Victims can be from any country, background or social status.  They can be men, women and especially children who are used for labor, sexual pleasure, organ removal and sacrifice ... I told you it was unpleasant.
  • Global Warming.  The best minds and experts in science, politics and the media say that global warming is a natural phenomenon and that there is nothing to worry about.  Also, other best minds and experts in science, politics and the media say that global warming is a human-made catastrophic threat to future generations ... f**k!
BLIND DOG OZZY:  Enjoy the Royal Wedding!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Sake's Alive!
