It's fine to be a political band or speak out as an artist IF YOU TELL THE TRUTH.
But to advocate for billions MORE of U.S. foreign aid pisses me off.
Most foreign aid goes to despots and tyrants and the food gets wasted in transit/delivery.
The ones who profit from foreign aid are the poltiicians who give it away and the corporations who get government contracts from the money.
The biggest recipients are U.S. defense contractors who profit from blowing things up and killing people and then rebuilding the infrastructure in the name of "GOOD WILL."
What a crock this is.
Why doesn't BONO tell people abuot THAT?
"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
