Before you slam an entire group of folks, you might want to pay closer attention to what they have been saying in their messages.

IMHO, you did a commendable job of representing us. Thanks. Some people just can't grasp what is obvious to us. The original poster wasn't wrong in saying that we put the highest faith in our savings and investments. We do. To imply that we worship money is where he is dead wrong. We simply seek a better balance in our lives so that we may be more successful in our pursuit of happiness. To ignore money in that quest would be folly. The accumulation of wealth for its own sake is the worship of money, but I would be the last person to condemn someone for that. We all have our own concept of what constitutes a good balance. If worshipping money brings inner peace, then who am I to judge? We don't discuss the Philosophy of Economics here. We discuss the Philosophy of Economic Choices.
