    uh...

    British citizens are required to fork out an average of 1 pound, per person, per year, to cover the total expenses of the British monarchy. That amount is far from onerous.

    I guess I know what it feels like to be an asexual trapped in a gay pride festival. Everyone around me is going bug-****ing nuts about something I really couldnít give less of a **** about.

    Not only do I not care, I find anybody that does extremely annoying. Those blokes are responsible for my tv set being spammed with stupid royal marriage bull**** like itís the second coming of Jesus and heís giving out free boob jobs and penis enhancements.

    These people need to STFU about this **** already. I had more respect for them back when they only worshiped the Chumpís comb over and MTVís latest pre-teen sex symbol. And Iím not even sure how thatís humanly possible!

    Hell No.

    I'm turning off my TV and watching movies on that day to try and avoid it.
    The only good thing I can think of coming from this is a day off work

    I damn well hope they are paying for it from their own money. Rich buggers.
    Pawn off some jewels to pay for it, don't use taxpayer money

    It's called a working vacation, I guess.. You still have to pick up the phone if it rings. You're on for four years straight.

    It's kinda like astronauts in space or men in a submarine. Your never really off. You can't fully relax.

    I picked up the tab for the wedding. It's the very least I could for my British brothers. So don't you worry about that.

    I'd like it if you would spend your day off going to the wedding. It would mean a lot to Princess Diana who is in heaven. Bring a Union flag with you to fly as the happy couple goes by. And they'll probably be throwing lots of beads and trinkets like they do at parades.

    This is a once in a lifetime chance to be a part of history. We don't live forever, dear. When they refer to it over and over and over you won't be so annoyed. I was there!

    he's served in multiple wars. how is he a spoiled brat?

    look, i don't really care about the wedding. Good on them and I sincerely hope that it brings them joy and fulfilment. But don't hate the guy because he was born the way he was born, that's no smarter or dumber than looking down on the LC because they were bor LC.

    bush took vacations on his ranch; that he bought with his own money, and rode his bike, that he bought with his own money, and played with his chainsaw, which he bought with his own money. he probably didn't think of it in the context of squeezing a buck; that's just what he liked to do.

    Mrs Obama takes her 50 best friends and rents out French resorts, and the Obama's seem to be taking another vacation every time i turn around. can you demonstrate to me where they have paid for the expenses out of pocket?

    and just to point out; Obama played more golf in his first two years, than Bush did in 8.


    last week was the one - year commemoration of the explosion off the coast of the gulf which killed 11 workers and flooded that region with oil. the region still suffers, shops are still closed, and oil is still washing up on shore.

    the President marked the solemn occasion by playing golf before attending a fundraiser dinner in his own honor.

    You people are So gay why are you all still talkig about this? Also happy Easter!
    "Weíre going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and thatís crazy." -Reagan
