I came from a communist country, AKA Vietnam. So Vietnam also has a constitution that guarantees freedom of speech! It's just that I like the american style of freedom of speech than the one I had in Vietnam. So I left illegally! Get caught one time for 3 months of reeducation in some pristine land!

So in short, you have the right to choose your own religion any where on earth and which country does not guarantee that right? At least in words!. But I like the one in america. I don't know what do you think, but i had to cross 400 miles from Vietnam to a strange country, Malaysia in a 10 meter boat with 40 passengers. Oh I ,mean 40 including the recent reeducational captain, the mechanics apprentice who was sea sick for the whole trip.

Now back to Obama, as he says it's just words!! I don't know what he means as his words can change any time, Ok, one more thing than I leave, "CHANGE" is a dynamic word!! Good job Obama!!,
