Bono has affected me

When Bono met with the Pope, and when Bono started quoting Psalms during concerts, and started meeting with President Bush, I knew that Bono was right and that religion was paramount.

umm I think lipstickboy you may be one of Bono's greatest fears of religion used in the wrong context .. I think Bono's message happens to be God is paramount and that as the institution religions should be living up to the Golden Rule " Love thy Neighbour" not judging them .I'm pretty sure God is able to judge people all by himself , he doesnt need our help on that..

"Christianity without an element of social justice is empty"

People, please stop quoting his ugly nonsense. You are just encouraging it.

I had the good sense to block him after about his first or second day here and it makes me truly ill to have to read that crap again.

Ok, random stuff....

* U2LipstickBoy - Your posts show a ridiculous level ignorance, stupidity, fear and hate. The fact that you have managed to succeed in reaching such a high level of the above with every post, and that for everything you seem to have the exact opinion that everyone here, left or right leaning, would all agree is just plain wrong, makes me think you are either a regular poster here going by a different name to stir a bit, you are new here, and deliberately stirring with stuff that you definitely know people won't like, or you are for real. If you are for real, and these truly are your beliefs and opinions, I am truly sorry that you have a jelly bean where your brain should be, and seem to have been born without a heart. I am also sorry that you call yourself a U2 fan, but appear to have switched on the wrong button on your stereo so as to mute all voices, as I think you have completely missed all the lyrics and therefore meaning of U2's music. Switch that button off, listen to what U2's music is about, you'll either keep your opinions and not be a fan anymore, or it will give you something to think about. Also, Bono has a better than average voice and I'm sorry if you are missing that as well. If you're just stirring, you've had your fun, give it up, it's pretty offensive.

* I do agree with you on one thing; Bush will win this year. Actually, Bush won't win, the Democrats will lose. They've been virtually handed this election on a plate, and they have somehow stuffed it completely. From where I sit, I can't really see what Bush has done right. I don't follow US domestic issues closely, but from what Ive gathered, he's pretty much failed on all fronts. Internationaly he is a joke, both in his actions and his image. In a way he is bringing the world together. If there is one thing that people of all races, cultures, nationalities, ages, sexual orientation, religions, even political beliefs can agree on, it's that they hate Bush and have a genuine fear of him, his administration and his plans for the future, and most importantly the reasons why he does the things he does. I could find common ground with any human on earth by saying "I hate Bush" and we can both rant and rave about him for hours. If only the rest of the world had a say in US elections. The standing of the US has never, ever been lower, all around the world.

* Why are the US Democrats so soft? This next part comes via Michael Moore, and I know, I know, I don't think that highly of him either, but this comparison is true and you all know it: Imagine Clinton was in power on 9/11. Imagine Clintons family had a long, long history of being buddies with the Saudi Royals. Imagine if there were solid links (never denied by him) between Clintons family and the Bin Laden family. Imagine if Clinton continued to protect both the Saudi Royals and the extended Bin Laden family after 9/11 to a level strange enough that it demands questions. Imagine Clinton was pushing to pass into law an Act that included such things as searches being conducted in your house without a warrant, and without you ever having a right to know if they've been there. There are many more examples (I haven't even mentioned Iraq), but think about it, what would Republicans be doing to him now? They'd be going for the jugular. Think about the bullshit witchhunt they went on with Clinton, over nothing, for the whole time he was President. They were non-stop on the attack. The Democrats seem afraid or too weak to do the same thing. This election should have been a romp for them. They have the worst US President in recent history right there. There are so many holes, so many stuff ups that they could target. They're just going to let him win on the amazingly stupid "We are at war/You are all under threat/We must protect you" angle. Create a threat, create fear, appear to fix the fear. It is one of the oldest political tricks in the book. The Democrats should be able to blast him out of the White House, but they don't have the guts.

* I got sent to from a post in here ages ago, maybe a couple of years ago. In a way it's a good site, I use it from time to time, because you just stick a subject in the search and you get hundreds of articles reflecting all manner of opinions on virtually anything. They link left leaning, right leaning, central news articles and opinions from all over the world. It gets scary when you start reading the posts that come after the articles though. Really scary. I can't believe it's 2004 and people still think that way.

* Bush will win. Well before the 2008 election, Bush's re-election will be realised as one of the single biggest mistakes the US has ever made. I would bet my house on that. Thank God you only have 2 term limits.
