"LaFleur’s limp defence, typical of royal apologists, does not answer why ancestry alone should determine one’s position to rule. Nor does it justify a rule of law that perpetuates the relationship of subjects to parasitic overlords, who even LaFleur acknowledges are more profligate than necessary. (The British queen’s annual $68 million from taxpayers — not to mention spoils from yesteryear — makes Obama’s $400,000 annual salary look positively frugal.) Unfortunately, this unwarranted loyalty and admiration for a ruler and a ruling class appears to be festering in the United States." (06/01/11)
