If he's being knighted, good for him.

He's done great things for them Africans.

Yeah, I love how people think that Bonos humanitarian contributions are completely insignificant just because they think he's a egomaniac (won't argue with that) and they hate his music.

Its all these socialist assh*les who give him a hard time because he actually spends some of the money he makes for a living, rather than just giving it all alway.

Thats lame ass bullsh*t... You don't have the slightest f*cking idea what his motives are, and why should it matter anyway, Bono and Gates are devoted to giving money to good causes, and thats all that should matter, they've helped more people than you ever will in your lifetime, what right do you have to give them sh*t for it? You think you're so damn hot? You try coughing up 31.9 billion to help provide for the less fortunate.

If I saved someones life, and someone questioned my motive directly afterwards, I would shoot that person in the face.

Lol, who gives a sh*t about caring, if I was homeless and I had starving children I wouldn't be asking for care, I would be asking for money.

For 'Spends some of his money' replace with 'Doesn't pay any tax in his own country'. And last I checked it doesn't matter if you are socialist , fascist or anything in between , you still pay taxes.

He's quite willing to get his face on the news and bleating on about those less fortunate than others yet when it comes down to doing it himself with his own money , rather than the money of others he's quite willing to get a team of lawyers and accountants to search out every loophole & offshore company in existance.
So he can open a music school in Dublin and say how he is making a difference. Well big f*cking deal , imagine how many schools could benefit if Bono's millions were having the proper amount taxed that he should pay.
But of course by doing it that way you don't get your picture in the papers so he's not interested.

I realise that he's not the only one , but then they're not getting nobel peace prizes & knighthoods either.

I don't see that being a big deal, number one, goverments are not known for their tasteful spending. Also, I'd rather help people financially by my own accord rather than let the goverment decide how they should spend my money. Besides, the Amish don't pay taxes and they seem like swell folks. =)

Regardless of how tasteless the government spending is the fact is that money is what goes into schools , hospitals , public services from which a great many people benefit , as I have come to appreciate after watching my Father recover from heart surgery.So you might not see it as a big deal but I do.
Even if an ignorant selfish bastard like me is willing to give up 20% of the peanuts I earn compared to Bono don't you think such a wonderful humanitarian like him would be only too happy to give up at least 20% of his own earnings?

Yeah, that is silly not to pay taxes... But I think where he slacks in taxpaying, he makes up for with his philanthropy. Just like where you slack in philanthropy, you make up for with your taxpaying.
