Not necessarily right, but a fact regardless who is President.

You told me you havnt seen the CSPAN interviews that I have re Bono saying nice sincere things about Bush.
Until then plez refrain from claiming to know of Bono's true feelings of Bush's. Cuz u dont.

GW will be visiting Africa this Jan keeping his promise he made earlier, Bono said.
The difference between this administration and the last is-
-one says, toots his horn, then does what he says he was going to do..
-the other just does.
Bush doesnt toot his horn like Clinton.

Trent owns a title only..He is only a figurehead.
For how much longer, his days seemed numbered..
Bush condemned him yesterday.
Yes, it was a cheap shot.
You know it, I know it.

I'm claiming to know bono's intent!!?!?!?!??!??!?!?!?


I just said he has to be a bpolitician in this matter


your the one whose saying bono was sincere...whose predicting intent!!?!??!?!

LMAO..diamond....you need to come up with one way to attack an argumetn and make sure that your not committing that mistake yourself.


Diamond...on this forum...if you say anythign against the republican leadership..it's a cheap shot to you. He's repbulibcan leadership..figurehead or not..that's his title. Deal with it if you dont' like him...just say you dont' like him but you think there are other examples of conservatism that are better examples than trent lott....dont' call it a cheap shot.


Diamond...if you want a cheap shot....hows this


Strom THurman...is UNSEXY!!!!!

#3-Iam- based on what I witnessed.

#4-try not to.

#5-already said I don t care for him, based on his policies/statements..Guy rubs me wrong. I did say there are better examples of conservatiism than this person, that's why we both know it was a cheap-shot..

#6agreed..esp his racist views..altho he was airborne on D-Day in Normandy..that was sexy back in the day.

yeh, Bono is thinking positively here.


This is what I learned in a letter from Barbara Lee:

"Despite the obvious implications of delaying increased funding, the administration has yet to display the sense of urgency that this situation demands. Along with many of my colleagues, I worked hard to include a provision in the FY 2002 Supplemental Appropriations bill that would add an extra $200 million for HIV/AIDS funding, $100 million of which would have gone toward the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria. Sadly, the President refused to allow the disbursement of this money, along with other funds."


This trip to Africa in January should be interesting...

Diamond...you can't predict sincerity....period I don't care how many interviews you've seen I don't care if you did the interviews yourself


If I cannot JUDGE insincerity based on what I've seen...then you have 0.0000000 percent grounds to tell me you can predict sincerity.


ahhh yes....it hurts to be right


Diamond..could you give me some examples of good republicans?
Because I guess every democrat is the spawn of satan..so I guess I better switch parties.

isn't that implied by the term MAJORITY LEADER???
Let's not forget good old majority whip, Tom DeLay. Boy, if the Republican Party was attempting to look "diverse" and "moderate," they certainly failed with their ultraconservative leadership in Lott and DeLay.

Diamond as much as it seems we disagree. Man you are wrong about Bono. Just because you seen some interviews and read some newspapers make you no expert on Bono. Have you ever noticed bono says alot of the same lines over and over? Ya thats because they're good lines and he has become a politicion over th elast few years.

I am sorry but you saying you know that he is sincere cannot be proven and really has no merit.

ANYONE CAN LIE....EVEN BONO!!!!

Bonofellow-
Listen.
You are 20 yrs old.
I was attending my first U2 concert when you were still wetting the bed.
I ve been to every tour since War in the early 80s.
I was buying U2 records, listening to Bono when you were in still in diapers.

In real life, Ive dealt w Bono up close.
I know when he genuinely likes someone or when hes going thru the motions.
You shouldnt be bothered by his openmindedness.
You and a few others need to get past this, welcome it, and not feel threatened.

Peace-

PLease dont refer to my age as a bad thing...look at it as a good thing. Fresh thinking.

You cannot possibly be convinced you and Bono are mates. Because in my opinion th eonly one that can speak of Bono's chartacter and be for sure are close people to him. Sorry you cant convince me.

Bonofellow-
your age is not the issue at hand.
I never claimed to be Bono's mate.

You seem to "know" he is lying..and to that I disagree.
