    Nathan! You have posted 92 messages since you have joined the forums! Don't you think it is time to come back to Earth and update your profile? It's hard to take anyone seriously when they claim 'heaven' as their current location!

    Note spelling of "illiterate".

    Your latest sentence could be read to mean that the president is trying to endear himself to "poor and illiterate people who have money". Your original sentence made it clearer that he is giving them money in an attempt to endear himself to them.

    I agree with Amigos4.

    If you're in Heaven you shouldn't need to ask any questions at all.
