@LISAhENDEY AND OTHER Catholic Bloggers I have a few things to say to you all. Your five day excursion at #WMOF2015 is a waste of money extravagance.

Dear Catholic Bloggers: 

I hope this finds you well.  I am still in the Sunshine State here and am staying in the Sunshine State as will most of our priests and laypeople and Sisters and Brothers in the American Church here.

The beach for us is almost free.  Remember that when you spend too much here.  None of those I know spend that.  That’s stupid.  I hope you are not one of the stupid.  The less spent the better.

I dare every one here to laugh at you because this is about how much you all are spending on rooms in downtown Philly.  I WENT AND LOOKED AT HOTELS.COM  

Here’s what I found:  Brace yourself regular I DON’T NEED HOLY APPROVAL FROM OTHERS. You apparently just had to be there and will spend more than some single parents make in a month for a half a week.  You coulda woulda helped them but this and that is Capitalism, something the Pope condemns as wasteful. 

Look out.   When he finds out he is not going to be nice to you. Don’t expect more time because you are a Catholic American blogger.

Here’s what they are spending on rooms alone:  (My hub and I won’t even spend over $100 a night on a room in Florida.)   And don’t even think to be daring and smirk at our day trips that we are careful enough never to spend more money so we cannot give legal services to the poor in the Tampa bay area.

*********************************************

And this is only some of it.  

Now,   this is what most of them are spending on rooms alone.  These are the hotels.com cheap ass rooms.  We are not even talking about charge cards credit cards on food alone. 

More than likely they are spending about $400 PER DAY.  THIS IS TO HEAR THEMSELVES PATRONIZE OTHERS. 

THIS IS ALL ABOUT HELPING THE STARVING CHILDREN IN AFRICA BUT YOU CANNOT HELP THOSE IN YOUR COUNTRY AND STAY HOME WITHOUT HEARING YOURSELF TALK. 

Now what  was that about not having enough for health care and other items like finding money to help needy mothers buy diapers and formula for babies?    YOU ALL ARE SPENDING $400 A NIGHT ON A ROOM?  

Don’t you dare chide me about Planned Parenthood or whatever you think my support or lack of support is or is not right now.  I WOULD NEVER EVER SPEND THAT MUCH MONEY EVEN WITH MY NEAR FREE DISNEY WORLD TICKETS. I WOULD NEVER EVER WASTE MY MONEY OR OUR CLIENTS HARD EARNED MONEY ON A $300 A NIGHT ROOM.  

Don’t even talk to me about my big house that is paid for!  It is not even that big.  It is in need of many many repairs that we still cannot do because of the next phase of Probate court in a western state my FIL had land in.  That we are waiting on. 

Consider how not that many of you would even give up your stance for a donation to a local charity instead of spending your credit money on this grandstanding event for you.   It is immature to have to see yourself in all of it. 

I don’t.   I AM NOT LIKE THAT GIRL HILLY IN THE BOOK OR MOVIE THE HELP. 

I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT SOME OF YOU ARE. SOME OF YOU ARE CLOWNS WITHOUT THEIR MAKEUP WHO ARE NEEDING THEIR OWN CIRCUS. 

If you go home and give this money to the poor instead,  someone like me will have to tell the POPE  how wasteful you all are. 

Got that?  Don’t think I haven’t already done so.  But hey when he comes down on how much you are spending on getting to even see him after you will not listen to him or pretend to listen to him,  you will know that you all are spoiled little Jesus brats. 

Got that?   I want no part of your circus.  I mean you can’t pay your people on your free blogs but you go trapsing all over creation spending the money you would pay them for your blog. 

Sorry honey,  game over.  I am working as my hub’s legal clerk for my hub because if I cannot pay for someone’s health insurance while they are going to school,  I do not need to have them working for us. 

Maturity calls for difficult decisions that impact real lives beyond the showing off of where you can go . 

You are spending up to $300 a night on a room?  That’s $300xabout 5 or even 6 nights. 

I have had enough.  Time to unfollow you.  And I just did.
