Especially how the people of Britain provide for them, and now this garbo of a weeding.

    So. A ton of people dislike Obama in America. That doesn't mean we need to wish harm upon him or his family. It really solves absolutely nothing to make some sort of idiotic statement through violence at a wedding. It just makes the position look weak and desperate.

    LOL! And that's the view from Kansas, is it? Do you even know how the people of Britain allegedly provide for them? You might find a couple of the posts preceding this one instructive. The Civil List is set at £7.9 million per year - tell me; how much does it cost to maintain your President and the White House establishment?

    I have grown up in the UK, and while I value the Westminster system of Constitutional Monarchy as a system of governance, I am fairly ambivalent about the Royal Family as people. But I have never, ever, met one person who admitted to strong personal dislike of any member of the Windsor family. Plenty of Brits are, like myself, indifferent about them, but I have not encountered active dislike. Unlike, I might add, many of the views published in the US of your successive Presidents - now there are examples of real dislike!

    I never understood anyone's obsession with them other than people like to watch big lavish shows for no reason. With as much as the American media covers this stuff you would swear they're sad we have our independence. Me personally I don't mind having badasses wearing wigs, guys with wicked beards, and oh yeah a stoner that invented ducking electricity on our money. What do they have? Some old ladies?

    Most people dont care as long as they keep quiet about politics (or anything really) we say that the monarchy are like a spot on you,re face. You tolerate it untill it starts to oose

    Stirring up trouble is bad enough. Its a wedding. Frankly, only jacka**es tie politics to marriage based on love.

    Someone messing with this wedding would be comparable to someone messing with Jenna Bush's wedding (I think that's the right sister). Basic human compassion says gtfo, and stay away.

    I don't care, and if I were English I would be pissed that my tax money would go to this unnecessary event.
