Bono's Comments this morning...

The full transcript here:

http://www.data.org/archives/000774.php

Not sure if this is the right place (if not, I'm sure a helpful mod will place it where it is more apropos)...

Was impressed (again) by his stressing that this (like so many other issues) is ultimately a spiritual one....

As always, it's great to head over to Free Republic to see what the Conservative nutjobs think on any particular subject. Here's their take on Bono's speech:

These people should really get all the facts....on his giving, hard work and purpose he feels was handed to him from God. He did not take a vow of poverty.

"Religion often gets in the way of God."

Look, whatever thoughts you have about God, who He is or if He exists, most will agree that if there is a God, He has a special place for the poor. In fact, the poor are where God lives.

Check Judaism. Check Islam. Check pretty much anyone.

WOW!

The ignorance and hate is astounding.

I hope I never really need the help of my fellow Americans. Sounds like I'll be given a middle finger and exaust fumes as a BMW pulls away.

While in no way do I doubt Bono's dedication to his cause. (I truly think he is a noble man for his humanitarian efforts.
I feel that it is not the governments duty to dedicate the money to foreign countries. 1% on foreign aid is a lot of money.

Personally, I feel that the money is better given to private organizations such as DWB, Red Cross and World Vision. By money given I mean by you or I giving 5% of our salary to a foundation that already has the infrastructure there to do its good.

The government's job is to make sure its own country has all its needs met.

the government's responsibility is to make sure the needs and desires of its CITIZENS are met.

and i think it's fair to say the vast ma7ority support government spending on foreign initiatives that promote prosperity among the most poor.
