David Gilmour of Pink Floyd on Africa and Stingy Americans

Amother entertainer who believes we CARE about WHAT he thinks. Would we listen to the opinion of an organ grinder's monkey? Anyway with Mongo's PO'd emphasis.boortz.com:
"'Like most people, I want to do everything I can to persuade the G8 leaders to make huge commitments to the relief of poverty and increased aid to the third world. It's crazy that America gives such a paltry percentage of its GNP to the starving nations.'
Neal jumps on this in the next paragraph, but I have to comment. Hey DAVID! How much of the stingy American's money has lined your pockets, you hypocritical son of a B! Get off your ass, open your wallet, or get in your jet and FLY to Africa and help these poor people. Oh, you just want to play music and ride in limosines. I see.
Say what? The great and exalted David Gilmour thinks that it's 'crazy' that the United States government doesn't seize more wealth from Americans who worked for and earned it so that this wealth can be handed over to 'starving nations?' I wonder if Gilmour has ever uttered one word in opposition to the antics of that maniac Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe? Probably not. At any rate, isn't it nice that this character can tell us how much of our gross national product we're supposed to give away? Spoken like a true anti-American socialist. Apparently the United States, which is the most generous nation on Earth, is supposed to give billions more because some aging rock star says so. As far as the left is concerned, if one person in the world is starving, it is because the stingy, evil Americans allowed it to happen.

If David Gilmour and all of his rock star buddies really want to help the people of Africa, how about they get their overpaid rock star asses onto their private jets and go sling bags of grain down in Zimbabwe?"
See my rant, above.
