To put this another way it's like a teenage with divorced parents, categorically stating that they prefer one to the other, when the now least liked parent, has always done everything they can, to support, and encourage and given much personal sacrifice, for the child. Yet the child rejects this and prefers the other parent who ignores and looks down at the child, but just happened to put the deposit down for their new apartment some years ago!
Despite official denials, the non-invitation is obviously a slight to the Obamas personally - principally motivated, one imagines, by the airs that the bumptious Mrs Obama customarily gives herself. The Democrats and Obama would like to play the race card as they have done so many times in America, but it is difficult when other black heads of states are invited to the wedding and will be warmly received. It appears that Prince William personally told the wedding planners to strike the Obamas from the guest list with his grandmother's, Queen Elizabeth's approval. It is all a matter of class and both Obamas displayed none. The gifts to The British from Obama and Michelle were both tacky and in poor taste as was not bowing to the Queen but at the same event bowing deeply to the Saudi prince. In addition the Queen supported Prince William in his decision, due to the fact the word is out about the lavish booze parties at the White House, the expensive vacations and state visits that cost the American tax payers billions of dollars unnecessarily when the American people need the resources… We here can’t decide if it is just low class, no class, big a_s or all that has just been mentioned.

Btw, is anyone here fluent in French? Preferably as their native language? I've been learning the language and I would love to meet someone that I can talk to and who can correct me, and especially teach me the ropes of "street" French since everything I'm learning is dry and "proper." I can use messengers or whatever.
The charter was an important part of the extensive historical process that led to the rule of constitutional law in the English speaking world, although it was "far from unique, either in content or form". In practice, Magna Carta in the medieval period did not in general limit the power of kings, but by the time of the English Civil War it had become an important symbol for those who wished to show that the King was bound by the law. It influenced the early settlers in New England and inspired later constitutional documents, including the United States Constitution.

Yet I notice that you conveniently ignore the links I provided that clearly show that your much loved and often boasted about Constitution owes it's existence to Britain.
