    They are serfs. Do they have a choice?

    Why? Are you ashamed of your cervix?

    big difference between your cervix and your cervical vertebrae, two very different locations on the body, one men have too, the other only women do :p

    I don't see why so many of my fellow Americans care so much about the Royal Weddings, Funerals, and the like. Yes, I'm an Anglophile in some ways, and America will always have a special bond with England that we share with no other nation, but uplifting these do nothing ceremonial figureheads is silly IMO. We broke away from Mother Britain to get way from the Crown and all it's self serving pomp and circumstance.

    There was a time when I viewed the Monarchy as being a grander institution than the Presidency, the imagery of Kings, Queens and Knights and all of that sparked my then teenaged imagination; The way they dressed, etc--it seemed so much grander and more eloquent than our system. But for all the grandeur of the monarchy, it can never come close to the humble dignity and majesty of the Presidency, an office open to any able and willing man or woman, unlike any monarchy.

    I do wish, however, that the trappings of the "Imperial Presidency" that Kennedy and Nixon brought into the White House, still remained.

    I'm not sure about Kennedy AND Nixon and the "Imperial Presidency." The Kennedys were famous for arts and culture they encouraged in the White House, but it was just Nixon who brought in the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta uniforms. In what way do you think the Kennedys embodied an "imperial" presidency?
