"We beg no longer; we entreat no more; we petition no more. We defy them!" - William Jennings Bryan, 1896
When I was assigned to the Berlin Brigade during the 70's as military police when one of the high mucky mucks or a royal whatever visited I always asked to be put one some obscure far away post or duty during graveyard shift so I wouldn't have show "respect" or defer to their royal high-assesness. It was pure bunk to have feign obedience to those we kicked their collective kisters.
Well played, Sir.
But you don't have to look over the ocean to see a tyrant!
