So TIME Magazine picked Bono as one of its three “Persons of the Year” (along with Bill & Melinda Gates), calling him a “Good Samaritan.”
Ironically, we just wrote about phony “Good Samaritan” Bono, last week. And obviously, we think the pop-star wears no clothing (other than his expensive tinted Chanel sunglasses).
Question for TIME: How is pressuring U.S. taxpayers to forgive debts owed by terrorist-host States (Sudan–whose Arab Muslim government murdered almost all Black Christians and is now murdering the Black Muslims) being a “Good Samaritan”?
Question #2 for TIME: According to Pollstar, Bono’s U2 had the top-grossing concert tour of 2005, grossing $260 million? How much of that money versus U.S. taxpayer money went to the debt and AIDS relief he wants us to fund?
Question #3 for TIME: What about Bono’s $1,700 first-class plane ticket he bought for his hat? How many Africans could that have fed? How many AIDS tests in Africa or AIDS drugs could that have paid for?
“Good Samaritan”? Someone’s been smoking too much Mary Jane. And it’s not just Bono. It’s the editors at TIME who chose this Chanel-glasses encrusted rock-star phony.
