Fact is that many a Mom was proud to make good food from meager sources that would sustain her family.
It just so happens that these inexpensive comfort foods make folks fat.
Well it’s obviously caused by white racism....
I have no idea.
One of the resons white on black rape is negligible?
Look behind the scenes, specifically at the greedy corporate Spandex makers.
Oh Man! I have been seriously stuffed at Georgia breakfasts lorded over by Georgia Mom’s
None of the governments business. Make sure everyone pays for their own crap and nobody would care.
Sittin on your behind, it'll kill you.
