    Default Red nose day


    Is it just me or does anyone else get fed up of these "help the world fundraisers"?

    Famous people with millions in their bank accounts asking normal people to part with their cash, (the poor giving to the poorer) shouldn't all the millionaires in the world give more?

    I have nothing against charity work and fundraising and yeah i know we are still better off than some third world countries, but how is this going to help with our recession?

    Our country needs help, I struggle to pay my mortgage, who will help us?

    I guess you didn't watch BBC1 last night then?

    Malarias about as funny as cancer Tony. You should go and see Africa for yourself sometime
    However I have my doubts all the money collected would make it past the crooks and dictators running the countries that need help the most. and I dont believe hands outs and charity help long term as they come to depend on it rather than learn from mistakes and begin to adapt. What I mean to say is some places still have no fresh water and cant provide mosquito nets for their own families.

    Africa is the last country I would want to visit. They don't help themselves, so f*** em!
    When you have countries like Nigeria, where they still believe in witches, and they murder, sexually, mentally & physically abuse children because the think they are posessed, South Africa where they rape lesbians and think it's OK, and Zimbabwe - nuff said!
    You could give them all the money in the world and the AIDS ridden would still go around shagging without using condoms, and instead of chopping each other up they would buy guns and shoot each other.
    Leave them to it I say.
    And anyway - If they had any sense, they would move where the food is.

    On a lighter note, you could drink heavily every day for years and grow your very own alcoholics red nose.
    Jesus loves you........ everyone else thinks you're an arsehole.

    Politics or religion are always going to be a somewhat controversial topic on any forum. This thread is unfortunately starting to stray in that direction even though the opening post was based on charity work. Everyone here has opinionated and perfectly valid points of view. It's makes a good read and you all said what you had to say, but this is the wrong site to do so and I don't want it posted.

    I don't have to agree or disagree. I only have to keep a watchful eye over what's going on and maintain a fair balance otherwise chaos, panic and disorder will prevail. All I care about is the wellbeing and continued growth of this forum and seeing as it has nothing to do with taping, I have much pleasure in closing it down!
