Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee

Now that Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee is over, I have to admit that I envy my British friends’ Royal Family. We Americans have nothing to compare, and I think to our loss.

I know our founders soundly rejected any connection with royalty; and considering the politics of the day, perhaps rightly so. But I think we lost something wonderful.

My congratulations go to all of the Brits here!

^You might think differently if your government dropped several hundred thousand to millions of dollars everytime one of them decided to sneeze on your soil.

I think it has been said that the queen must believe that everywhere smells of fresh paint

There are a substantial number of us Brits (me included) who see the Royal Family as an anachronism in this day and age. Still, I enjoyed an extra day off work

I live in a city named after one of the royals. We got a pretty spiffy fountain one year.




It's part of our history and I like the fact that we worked out a deal instead of going to war, but it costs a lot of tax dollars every time one of them stops by.

Or every time your President hops on Air Force One to jet off the the other side of the country to attend a fund raiser for his re-election campaign?

We have that too, although maybe not to that scale, but they are trying.
