    Awww… that’s so sweet. They all said that their Mother’s were their role models, growing up. They are so lucky. My mother was a b*tch to me, growing up. I’m a black woman & my only role model growing up was Ozzy Osborne 😆

    Unfortunately most of their concerns are not my concern. I live in the North East and issues are similar but there are differences.

    Look at the size of these people. Please tell me what healthcare system could manage the costs of the population full of the obese people? When the socialist Bernie offers free healthcare, these obese people love to hear it.
