Why do Americans worship money so much?

We care more about money, prestige and "progress" than 

about being happy. Our motto is: "follow us in our blind 

ambition. We live to work, there is no better way." I don't 

really see many options: you either go to work full-time or 

start a business which is very risky. I looked into being 

homeless; and that's just plain dangerous. Advice Please.

    What do you want advice about? It's pretty hard to be happy, if you don't have enough money to live on.

    I don't think it's just Americans, or the money itself. More the freedom and opportunity money allows us to have. Most everyone gets a sense of security in money, it is the thing that motivates the world

    Why are you such a jealous loser?

    Seriously attitudes like yours could well make you unemployable and homeless!

    Time to GROW UP and start working for a living! Only that way can you have a decent life! Oh and do not forget with attitudes you have ate the moment a successful relationship is highly unlikely so real loneliness is beckoning!

    Immaturity is no excuse you stand to ruin your adult life!

    So stop feeling sorry for yourself, stand on your own two feet and take charge of your life and things will improve!

    Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!

    An inordinate love of money is the root of all evil. But, everybody needs enough cash to get by. The Bible is pretty clear about that, too. Saint Paul advised that those who refuse to work should not be fed. Figure out what you like to do and find a way to get paid for doing it. It may take a while, but what else do you really have to do?

    A person can better worship God only by reciting the rosary every day with care.
