My personal opinion on the letter and if Bush will do anything ( 3 billion is what is needed this year) and NOW- is that bush

1. will not mention the crisis in Africa surrounding AIDS tonight on the State of the Union.

2. Will not come through with the minimum 2.2. billion that is requested.


I am disheartened to say all of this. I will be calling the white house tomorrow through Friday even tho I have no faith in the Bush administration I will still try.

I wish he would prove me wrong.

SAD...............

Although his letter is well writen and meaningful and his cause really noble, I cant help feeling disappointed with Bono lately. Not a single word against this insane, stupid war, that has been planned for so long. At least Edge said something against it, I think it was in his last interview to Hot Press. Bono says "President Bush is in the business of making history". The thing is, in my viewpoint, what kind of history he will be remembered for.

i think edge did say something against it, briefly, i didn't think it was in hot press but i might have been...don't remember...

it's not going to WORK for bono to say anyhting against it...he's got to make friends with him, and saying something against dubya's war ain't gonna help...

that "hypothetical response" was hillarious!

Well, call me naive if you want it, but I think he should try, at least, he would be coherent with his history and background, coming from a country divided by war for so long. He has a way with words and it seems that he has the simpathy of the allmighty Mr.Bush. This is not a minor crisis, this is big, and it will affect the whole world, Africa included.

Someone said in another thread on this that they heard Bush will talk about the crisis in Africa with AIDS tonight.

But you're right, anyway-yeah, he might say something about the problem in Africa, but will he actually do anything about it? No. He's too busy with his precious war.

So do I.

Seriously, I feel horrible for Bono...he keeps hoping the Bush administration will pull through, he trusts them...I only wish I felt the same way. It ticks me off to know that Bush is not gonna do as much (or not gonna do anything at all) for this crisis as Bono would like him to do.

As for Bono not commenting on the war...I don't know why he hasn't-I'd like to hear his thoughts on the war as well-but like IWasBored said, if he wants Bush to help him out, he's gotta stay on his good side and not butt heads with him over the war. Personally, I'd love to see Bono butt heads with Bush over this war-that could get interesting-but if what IWasBored said is the case, then that makes sense.

Besides, we haven't heard any comments from Bono yet-that doesn't mean we never will. He may speak up sometime soon.

AIDS crisis directly addressed in Bush's State of the Union

I believe he proposed a $15 billion program.

President Bush, in his Address tonight, pledged $15 billion over the next 5 years, including $10 billion in new money.

Diamond, lookit, I know youre just trying to be friendly, but look, I have plainly told you that I find you calling me "gab" offensive.

Shortening people's screennames is one thing, but Gabriel is my real frikin name, aight? Do you call Martha "Ma", or the like?

I don't know one Gabriel, Gabriella, Gabrielle who enjoys being called "gab". Gabe maybe, but even that is for my close friends. I cant think of any other reason you are using this except to annoy me. Gab for Gabriel is NOT the same as Matt for Matthew or Greg for Gregory or Will for William or whatever. Gab is NOT a nickname.

Please stop it, its quite annoying.

Now back to the topic at hand.

Yes, you have stated several times in here that you post under your real name, so I will take that to mean that "Vox" is truly your last name.
