Mama Knows Best - Nov 2017

I’m so disappointed in the world today. How do you come to terms with all these shootings? Upset

I just try to live life as best I can and pray for everyone else. This world can be a better place, but it is up to us to change it. Please start to change it for the better. We can do it!

Dear Mama,
What do you think about the NFL protests? Not Signed

Those players can protest because that is what this country is about. The politicians need to stay the hell out of it. The powers in Washington are just dividing the country. Everyone has a right to protest, and if you don’t like it then don’t watch it! Good Lord, this isn’t rocket science.

Do you believe there is fake news? Curious

Do you have a Facebook account? Of course there are fake news sites. Darth Cheeto wants everyone to believe all major networks and news sources are fake, especially when it is against the orange one! We as citizens need to sift through the crap and find the truth ourselves. Thank God Will and Grace is back on!

Have you ever tweeted? Curious

Are you kidding? Only big orange idiots tweet. I would not even know how to tweet. I want no part of that after seeing what that leader does on there. It is like watching Eunice throw a temper tantrum every day over and over! Kind of gets annoying! Iola bring a new President NOW! l
