You know........in 1982 I joined the US Navy, because I thought that as a patriotic American I should be willing to defend this country, and I did for 20 years of honorable service. In 1776, the United States of America had a revolution and threw Britian out of our country, and we formed our own nation. So, can anyone tell me why I should care one iota about the people across the Atlantic who are getting married? I mean.......the American media has been blasting it on the news for the past fuckin' month, and there are things going on in THIS country that warrants more media attention..........stuff like politics, the debt ceiling, tornados that have ravaged a significant part of this nation (whole towns being wiped off the map), and oh yeah.........we've got a war in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. So why the fuck all this American media attention to something that we supposedly quit over 200 years ago? We're NOT British subjects. Although........last night on NBC news, Brian Williams annouced that because of the storms, they didn't go to Britian to cover the wedding, because they thought that the severe weather warranted more attention.
