Honestly you can apply this theory to every big event.

Why do American companies blow so much on Superbowl Ads?
Why does Obama and other heads of state go overseas so often when it costs taxpayers ridiculous figures?
Why do people buy luxury brand items and not get cheaper alternatives and donate the difference?
Why do people go overboard at Christmas buying stupid amounts of gift?
Why do sportsmen and women get paid so much money?

But arguably the biggest waste of money in the world at the moment - Why does America spend so much money on the war in Iraq and Afghanistan? Already costs more than $845 billion, expected to be around $3 Trillion in the end. Talk about wasteful careless humans huh?

That video only highlights a handful of people and their opinion. This shouldn't really matter to most Americans but people saying shit about the cost of the wedding, when your country is blowing more and more money on battle which ultimately will have NO winner, you don't hear any talk about that.

the difference with all these things is that paying for this stuff is voluntary, whereas british taxpayers have no choice but to foot the bill for this bullshit.

and are you really going to equate wars to weddings? c'mon son.
but i do agree america does need to get out all its wars, but thats besides the point.

edit: and Obama going overseas for diplomatic reasons is actually part of governing a nation, so id say thats a necessary expense. and i doubt those trips cost as much as this wedding did.

lol a war is way worse than a wedding, i like that as a comparison. people sayin the wedding is a waste of money are focusing on the wrong things.

no doubt wars are worse but thats not the point. wars are supposedly supposed to have a purpose. granted the ones the US are in now may be purposeless, depending on your POV. i just dont like the idea that people have to pay for someone elses wedding based on some old, irrelevant tradition.

i couldnt even imagine the backlash if american taxpayers found out that they paid for a presidents wedding.

People could say the exact same shit about why do you Americans pay so much attention to stupid shit like the Film Industry Awards Season or even the whole Charlie Sheen shit.


No shit. I wasn't targeting Brits exclusively, I was talking about North Americans as well.

Everything I listed? I never listed anything. What about warfare? That's on taxpayers.

Anyway, Ledger's (not mine - different Australian poster) argument is a red herring. Military taxes and whatever else being unjustified doesn't make the royal wedding any more justified.
