DennyC:Yes I have written my government by emails, signed petitions, for this and a host of other things. Sent clothes and toys through a my daughter's school and my family sponsors a few children.
You skirted the direct question I asked regarding if you wrote the government regarding sending US troops to overthrow the governments to get rid of the cause of the poverty.
We have done this for years. But I won't ask you to explain yourself or tell me ways you have tried to change the world for the better. It's simply not my business. I guess it's the way my husband and I look at things and how we raise our children, we see a problem, we see if we are able to help with our votes, actions, donations, time, etc.
I don't need to list everything I do here and contribute for the world on an internet forum. In fact, I don't think it's in good taste.
It is pointless to bellyache and disect every one of Bob Geldoff's words. Time is too precious to waste in that way. Sir Bob, is a man that is looking for answers, like the rest of us, he didn't create is problem. I have forgotton none of his words. He is someone I admire.
You brought up what the organizers tried to do. I corrected you with what their actual stated mission was.
Bob is not looking for answers....when he says, "forget the corruption" he is telling people what the answers are. He is certain that his answers of money, which historically hasn't done a thing, is the answer. And that is what he pushed the G8 to do....that is what he told the public again, was the way. He won't open his eyes to the actual cause.
