Mama Knows Best - Nov 2016

Dear Mama,
What do you think about people saying there is no good candidates this year so they are not voting? Concerned Voter

They may be right about the candidates, but I think there should be a law passed that if you do not vote then you’re not allowed to complain about the new officeholder. If you do you complain then you have to sit in a room with Donald Trump and listen to him for an hour, then pay a big fine! No one has a right to complain about a politician if they did not vote. Mama has spoken!!

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy Note 7? About to burn up

No, I do not have that fire trap. I still have a flip phone by Jitterbug for the older mature woman on the go. I find it amusing that Samsung has stopped production, but still won’t recall the phones. That just burns me up. These phone makers just peeve me off. First no jack on the Apple and now Samsung fire trap. I say let’s hang up on all of them! Iola, let’s go to the Raytown Mall.

Mrs. Harper,
What do you think about all these clown sightings around town and the country? Not signed

Well for goodness sakes, it is a an election year. The clowns always come out during that time. Maybe it is also the Halloween people just trying to promote a clown costume. Their main spokesperson is the best clown I know. Donald Trump! Someone please bring me a beer and do not vote for him.

Dear Mama,
What are your plans for Thanksgiving? A Friend

Well, I will make a big feast for my ungrateful family. We will eat and then they all will start fighting. I will then be thankful for my six pack of beer in the refrigerator. I also know this is Iola looking for an invite for dinner on Thanksgiving. Just come over already!
