Another lefty hypocrite for U


The Edge and his wife, Morleigh Steinberg, bought 156 acres in Santa Monica Mountains and now want to build five mansions there, including their own dream home. From a distance, they say, their house will look like nothing more than scattered leaves on the ridgeline.

Nearby residents, however, haven't bought his green pitch and say The Edge is endangering the beauty of one of Southern California's most famous beachfront communities along with U2's globally conscious image.

"It is going to look nice to the human eye but at what cost?" said surf shop owner and City Councilman Jefferson Wagner. "When is enough enough?"

The plan has sparked the latest development controversy in Malibu, where residents and city officials portray themselves as stewards of a blessed environment —

even as the construction of palatial mansions and sweeping driveways turn vast swaths of that environment to mulch. - The Edge's Five-Mansion, 156-Acre Estate in Mountains Riles Residents - Celebrity Gossip | Entertainment News | Arts And Entertainment

Well, I don't know if this non-US citizen's hypocrisy is right up there with GOP religious-right Congressmen trying to suck intern's cocks, crusing restrooms with a tap-tap-tap, or buying whores with their campaign contributions, but heck, shame on Edge. Go back to Ireland. Bad boy.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
