    I wouldn't say it was as bad as Nixon bowing to Hirohito.

    Yes. No president should bow before a nobility especially British nobility. Obama bowing before a Japanese emperor does not have the same significance. A lot of those Asian countries everybody bows to everybody usually the younger person bowing further than the older person while in European countries it is just subjects who bow before royalty.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I searched "queen elizabeth vag" in the hopes of finding some humorous photoshop to assist me in making some sort of horribly off-color joke about what Reagan should have done, and one of the first results was a rapidshare download entitled "queen elizabeth - elizabeth vagina.part1.rar"

    That's absolutely terrifying.

    Really, that's all you needed to say. "rapidshare download" and we would have got the picture.

    Don't know - wasn't there. *poke poke*

    I see the only difference being that she is a Queen (female). There's a significant difference when it comes to other countries.

    Greeting, courteously, a female head of state (etc) is a sign of respect.
    Greeting a male in the same manner (or more so) is a sign of submission or inequality.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Physically or chronologically? Or both?

    If that division exists, it's because of the prevalence of queen consorts that lack true monarchical power or even the lesser authority associated with modern royalty. Queen Elizabeth, however, is a queen regnant.
