    That's not what you said. What you said exactly was

    Why don't you look for ways to enrich yourself, and benefit society rather than pissing, and moaning that others have more than you.
    I don't moan because other people have more than I do because I have ways of being happy that don't depend on material possessions. It is possible.

    Well, that is your choice....And some might criticize you for not being more involved...So, you would enjoy the freedom of doing with your money what you wish, but you don't want others to have that same freedom...I see.

    No one is free to do what they wish, even people with money.

    Walking with God doesn't make him a "Christian." A reporter had to remind him that he's really not a Muslim like Obama said, but a Christian like the reporter said he is. It's all just words.

    Besides, Obama's Christian ancestors murdered and slaughtered Muslims in the Crusades.

    The USA isn't laughable to most of the world. It's one place to try to get to.

    Its a foreign policy question for us in the UK. If the potential future president of the most powerful country on earth is a relgious fundamentalist then that is very concerning for us.

    Lesson of this story is if you dont want to get caught out like this dont hold press conferences in foreign countries.

    Religious fundamentalists are a concern in the UK and yet you continue to import ever more Muslims? Those Christian fundamentalists are causing a bit of a stir over there, are they?
