“I desire what is good. Therefore, everyone who does not agree with me is a traitor.”: “Mad King George, III.” His tutors found George a difficult student. He was silent and morose and when angry, he became obstinate and sullen. At twenty he still wrote like a child. George III became king when he was 28. In 1761 George III married the ugly Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz who had been nicknamed “monkey face.” Eventually they had 15 children.
During this prolific progeny production, George became ill, suffering from a high fever, insomnia and other infirmities. Today’s doctors determined from his symptoms that George III suffered from a rare hereditary disease, porphyria, its victims may have paralysis, hypertension, acute pain and pass purple urine.
Meanwhile, in King George’s new land of America , the natives and colonists were starting to become restless having huge Tea Parties and the like. On July 4, 1776, the provinces declared independence from the Crown and became a new nation. Included in the grievances their Declaration charged, “He has abdicated Government here… He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns and destroyed the lives of our people.” When George III learned of this insurrection, he became so angry he pissed purple.
George declared war on the upstart rebels of the new nation, claiming they are nothing but insurgents. But damn them, the French, of all people, signed a friendship treaty with the new United States . George III didn’t take the advice of his generals on the ground and obstinately took on the French (most likely he forbade the Brits from eating French Fries) along with the Colonists and eventually went to war with Spain too.
George III determined never to acknowledge the independence of the Americans and promised them “an indefinite prolongation of a war that promised to be eternal.” Little did George III know that he would keep his promise through bloodlines or as George W. Bush would have it, junk science of genes and chromosomes.
Yes, there is a bloodline from the Bush side from George III, that lineage being Windsor-Bush and from Barbara Pierce Bush, the bloodlines are a little more cloudy, but George H. Walker Bush and Barbara Bush, nee Pierce are distant cousins. George H. Bush’s father, Prescott Bush, Hitler’s American banker, claims he traced their lineage back to George III and they’re 13th cousins, twice removed.
It has been leaked that George W. Bush does piss purple and requires his own personal toilet whenever he travels, so that his evacuations remain secret with the Secret Service. It does make one wonder what the Secret Service man doing that duty is called. Speaking of evacuations, and with apologies to Andy Rooney, don’t you wonder about the time when a small plane flew off course over the White House, and half of Washington was evacuated, including Laura Bush and Mary Cheney, with the Vice President sent to his secret bunker in an unknown location under the White House? The President was riding a bike in Maryland and the Secret Service didn’t want to disturb his ride until the danger passed. Why didn’t the Secret Service Bike guy, tell the Commander Guy? Was the Decider riding off the affect of beer pretzels, Jim Beam or porphyria? Do you think the Bike Guy is also the Piss Pot Guy?
So there you have it, folks. Almost 250 years later, King George III’s bloodline reaches through time and history to repeat itself. “An indefinite prolongation of a war that promised to be eternal.” And we should add, a war that is hugely profitable for the Military-Industrial Complex and No-bid Private Contractors.
