It gets media attention in the US because of all the whimpy, helpless Americans who can't create their own lives and have to live vicariously through some snoody ass British royal couple. It's truly pathetic. There is so much suffering going on in this world.

why are the taxpayers paying?

The same reason the US taxpayers are fronting the bill on even more expensive stupid bullshit that nobody agrees with. At least this gives back to the community in some weird fashion (think sports). That's just a silly question to ask. We're not any better, in fact we're even worse.

Disclaimer: I have absolutely no idea who's getting married, and frankly am very happy staying that way.

Bankers actually generate money, the monarchy does not.

I'm talking about our banks here. Most of them a partly state-owned because of the bank bailouts. We put millions of taxpayers money into a recovery plan. These bastards should not get ANY bonus. Instead, if they have money to spend on bonuses it should be used to repay the UK taxpayers' money.

Failing banking systems should not be rewarded.

I think they are though. This wedding is costing me and other taxpayers 50 million. Why should that be allowed? They are only their because of their ancestry because noone actually voted them in. We talk about other countries being backwards but there is nothing more old-fashioned than a monarchy.

I'm watching part of the rerun on TLC to witness a piece of history in the making, and they won't stop talking about her fucking dress. Screw this.

Spoke with someone on the issue over breakfast and brought up an interesting point...all the attention, as "sad" as it is that people follow and care so closely, probably helps the UK tourism-wise a substantial amount.

Only real issue I see is that the majority (as I understand it) of UK taxpayers who are funding this are pissed, and have every right to be, but as long as TG still comes out of the BBC, I couldn't care less

As much as I agree with almost everyone, in my mind this is no different than the $Billions spent on sports, music, or any other forms of entertainment. And since I spend my fair share of time watching sports, who am I to hate on others who like to spend their time following celebrities/British royalty?

Everyone's got their useless diversions ...
