I don't care what they call themselves, I think that was another poster who commented on that, but on saying that we all had nicknames at school,
then we grew up.
I actually have increased my skills, knowledge and experience throughout my working life, going from student/trainee, up to consultant
level...whatever that has got to do with anything.
I don't care what Bono spends his money on, and I think in that article he was crticised for this as well
The non-profit organisation set up by the U2 frontman received almost £9.6million in donations in 2008 but handed out only £118,000 to good
causes (1.2 per cent).
from a previous poster on the thread Sonny1
Whatever we think about the taxation system, the Republic of Ireland's economy is in a state of collapse and a cash injection from the tax that U2
would pay could really help out.
And my position remains the same, someone who preaches to the masses about caring for the planet and ending poverty, but does the opposite himself is
a hypocrite in my book and maybe he does give away a lot of his enormous wealth and may wish to do this anonymously (though I'd be surprised at that
as he tends to shout from the rooftops about all his other good work) and he could end this controversy by simply making a statement about what he
gives and showing the accounts, then people may be less likely to criticise him.
And no one wants to steal his money, just to pay taxes like the rest of us have to...and yes, I think we all agree that taxation is theft by the
government, but if we don't pay then we're treated like criminals and thrown in jail..Bono on the other hand can just up sticks and move his
business to the Netherlands and is still treated like a god...regardless of my personal opinion about their recent musical offerings, I'm not
stopping or crticising anyone for buying their music or going to their concerts, that's their choice!
