Popotics: I don't care about Royal Wedding.
I'm going to make this short and sweet. As an American I have more important things on my mind than the figure head monarchy of another country; like gas prices raising day, by day, our country being in two different wars and a "conflict", our whole country being in a recession/depression (decession?), not having insurance or access to healthcare, and states cutting funding to education.
Still some idiots are going to probably turn on the "royal wedding" in the classrooms on Friday so the children can watch. Why not just say, "So sorry you're mom is serving her 4th consecutive tour of duty in Iraq/Afghanistan, and your dad was laid off months ago, and his unemployment ran out so he can't afford to pay the bills, much less fill his gas tank at $4.00 a gallon to get you to any extra-curricular activities because the school system had to cut funding so there is no more art, music, or physical education in school. Besides, if you got hurt playing sports you couldn't afford medical care because you have a pre-existing condition, and aren't covered by your mom's insurance anyway. So, look at these two rich people getting married who will never ever, ever, ever, ever have to worry about such things."
Oh, but they are so caring! They want you to donate money to charities instead of sending them gifts. The audacity of these people! The bottom 98% of Americans NEED charity! You're the bloody billionaires, YOU donate money and I'll continue to ignore your stupid $35 million dollar wedding.
