I do not appreciate Bono's comments in the New York Times

Recommended Posts

Bono,
Why are you constantly giving my country advice on how we should run our country? What business of it is yours? Obama has created more debt to this country with his stimulus package than ALL U.S. PRESIDENTS COMBINED!!!! How do you condone such things? You aren't an american citizen, it isn't your business or place to tell US how to run our country that many people died to fight for our liberty, rights, and freedoms from tyranny. This isn't a country that was found on marxist/socialism ideas! I'm tired of elitest celebrities, like yourself, telling us on how we are to accept Obama's policies ignoring what real americans think! Do you not know that most americans, especially senior citizens, oppose this health care plan? Only the  young don't care because they are young and healthy and think they won't ever die. I'm 38 years old and I do care. I don't want more taxes breathing down my or my husband's neck, how do any of you think that these things will be funded.  You can be taxed to death and you still have enough in the bank not to be affected. Obama will be a one term president! This health care bill passes all of the die hard liberals will be voted out of office next year's election. I'm proud to be an American! I am a woman and proud! My ancestors fought in the American Revolution and I'll be damned to see our freedom and liberty go in the toliet so socialism can reign supreme. I do know the New York Post is very, very liberal. You may never read this post but I'm putting it up on your site. How else am I to express my opinions to a unreachable person such as yourself. I have never disliked you, I've been a fan since my teens. I like alot of U2's music and I know you do alot of good things but this isn't one of them. God bless you.
In Christ,
Paige

How you canpossibly argue that Bono shouldn’t address American problems because he’s notAmerican when the American government are always telling other nations how to livetheir lives!!!

 

What areyou going to say next ? ´´Obama was born in Nigeria, therefore, he is notAmerican and shouldn´t be running the US´´

You´re right. I should have checked my facts. It turns out he was born in Honolulu in America, but his dad was from Kenya. It just makes those people who say he´s not American look even more stupid.

Paigecat....you will find in here very quickly, that if you disagree with Obama's policies...you are a lunatic. 

 

And you are not a lunatic, period. 

 

My two cents worth, how can the government run our health care system???  Just want I want to do, turn my health over to the government...we see how well they did with the bail outs and every other government run program!! 

 

I am not saying that health care changes are not in order, I just don't think the government should be in charge of it.....but that is a form of socialism for you.  Why not start with changing insurance and pharmaceutical companies??  Just a thought....but then many in our government don't have a brain to think with....

I didn´t say she´s a lunatic. Don´t put words in my mouth. My point was regarding her requirement of being American to discuss American issues.

 

It would seem for many that they´d wish to stifle debate by deciding who is permitted to have an opinion and who´s not. Normally this is due to the fact that the person has no points of value with which to refute the argument and simply pull out avoiding arguments such as the race card or the nationality card. Everyone has the right to freedom of expression including non-Americans and Bono is simply expressing his opinion.

Well in that case......

 

"Explained away . . . It might not mean anything. It could be just an unfortunate choice of words. But suppose that the real mission of Project "Saucer" was to cover

up something. Or that its purpose was to investigate something serious, at the same time covering it up, step by step. The Project "Saucer" teams, then, would check

on reports and simultaneously try to divert attention from the truth, suggesting various answers to explain the sightings. Back at Wright Field, analysts and Intelligence

officers would go over the general picture and try to work up plausible explanations, which, if necessary, could even be published."

But by correlating a truth with just so much 'blah and gibber' are you now in agreement with the original poster that Bono's opinions are just so much hot air?

You know Bush started the bail-outs right? Wait! He was white so it was okay! I know you want your "COUNTREEE BAKKK!"

 

So Tracy are you going to give up your

Fire Department

Police Department

Public roads and highways

Medicare when you hit 65?

Just wondering?

I mean if you ever have a catastrophic illness and your GLORIOUSLY SAINTLY Capitalistic piggy-like health insurance drops you, how will you feel then? Have you opted out of your taxes? The taxes that most likely have been reduced since Bush left? But wait, he was a white man who said Jesus told him to go bomb children in Iraq so its okay right?

 

Give me a fucking break.

 

Oh wait You're a Conservative! It doesn't matter until it affects you!

And Tracy, I am seriously hopefully some day I can be involved in a 5k run to find a cure for you and your lunatic(yeah really) ilk's cries of "Socialism!(when Bush started the bail-outs)" "I want MY country back!(give it back to the natives)" "Hes a Communist/Socialist!"(most of you are so uneducated you don't even know the true meanings, most of you never went to college cause they're filled with those damned "LIBERUHLS!"

 

Yeah, you don't have a brain to think with. Go bow down to your shrines of Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin. We'll live it up in our "Socialist Regime," while you become more of an outsider and are eventually pushed off the political spectrum.

 

P.S. Tracy,

 

I'm native, I want my country back. Why don't you go back to your ancestral homeland? Oh wait! Its probably one of those pesky European countries with free health care! They'd look like at you like an idiot and kick you out for being an imbecile. As this country should too.
