Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the convention! I can't imagine sitting through this.
Like you, I don't understand why the religion still knocks jobs and careers! This doesn't seem to end and it seems insane since everybody who heeds this bad advice ends up poor. Hearing this just makes me very glad I'm not there listening to appeals for money.
I notice you mention your parents in their 60s who are dependent on you financially. What would they do if you were not around??
I wonder if anybody reading on here has any doubts what the outcome WILL be if they don't want to work? Unless they have wealthy parents they have to go out and get a career, trade or whatever.
