Speak Your Piece:

My piece .. when Obama won we waited and took everything that came our way no body cared.. now we spoke up and we won .. now shut up and go away cause I don’t care about what you think or say … the protesters.. not you girls ..

I’m tired of trump supporters grasping at straws to find a reason to defend him. The fact that you enjoyed him in The Apprentice doesn’t mean he’ll be a good president. And Bill Clinton never talked about overturning roe v wade.

Speak your peace: I’m not a trump supporter but I’m sick and tired of all these people who didn’t take the time to go out and vote, bitching about who their president is. Shame on you.

Every woman should remind herself each and every day that she is bold, brilliant, and beautifull(ashley graham).

I have noticed over the last few years that most protesters/activists, as opposed most in ’50s and ’60s who desired more freedom, are actually desirous of a more restrictive society. And on the subject of the Electoral College, it is in place in order to protect the Rights of the minorities as opposed to an actual democracy which is the ultimate threat to Freedom

As soon as Trump took office the section on the White House website dealing with disabilities disappeared. That scares me

It is not about “getting over” a republucan in office. It is about a narcissistic, racist, hateful person in power

I agree with Paul WGN disc jockeys are way too opinionated… And I hope they apologize after Trump does a fantastic job

From one minute to the next it was more entertaining than any movie. Between Hillary’s deep breath’s (I thought she was going to be needing a paper bag), Michelle’s sideways glowering, Melania’s beautiful taste (especially when presenting Michelle with a Tiffany box), Ivanka looking like a princess and then the horrors of the rioting, wellโ€ฆ And then I actually felt sorry for president Obama because I knew that, once he got the door closed on that helicopter, Michelle was going to blast his ass clean off for “pandering to Trump after all the crap he said about you??!”

The Chicago fire department charged my wife $900 to go 5 miles

Hey illegal immigrants, it’s moving day. Get out. Protesters start marching north to Canada. Make room for LEGAL immigrants who will actually be happy to be here. Buhbye!

Thank God Obama is gone. How many more does he want to let out of prison

To the people who feel we should give DT respect because of the office of President–HE doesn’t respect the office. It’s all about HIM.

Some people like CHOCOLATE ice cream, some people like VANILLA ice cream… but EVERYBODY loves PANCAKES! Despite our differences, we all have things in common.

Ah, text your peace! ๐Ÿ˜
Turn your headlights on when it rains, quit parking in handicap spots if you don’t need them, don’t try to pay for more than 20 items in the express lane…..there, transported myself back to simpler times. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am a Longtime girlfriend Who relocated to the DC area about six months ago. I am tired of references to the “forgotten people” of the country. If you are white middle-class you are more than a majority of our country. We certainly have not been under represented at any point

Your parents get divorce when you are an adult, how do you feel?

My parents got divorced when I was in my senior year of college after 20 some years of marriage and in a way I could see why they divorced because they were two different people but in later years I feel like they’re possibly was maybe some regret on both sides especially after grandchildren came and time passed I think with age comes wisdom and I think maybe if they would have toughed it out they would have turned things around but how to say.

My father got up in front of 200 people celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary and said I am giving my wife what she always wanted, a divorce! He took a drink, walked out and never came back. Needless to say, I have not spoken to him since.

I decided to divorce after 30 years when I had enough of his controlling and had courage to say “enough!” Thank you Alanon!

I was born in the late 60s, grew up in the 70s. I begged my parents to get a divorce, I used to wish and pray for it. They had a very dysfunctional relationship, and life at home was always walking on egg shells. I did not understand the economic realities of why my mother stayed in such a bad marriage. What I did understand was television shows like One Day At A Time and Courtship of Eddie’s Father that portrayed happy single parent households. I also had friends whose parents were divorced and seemed so happy. As a kid I thought the key to happiness was living in a single-parent household because there would be no fighting.

After 27 years I sat my 25 year old down with his wife and daughter and told them I filed for divorce. His response: What took so long?

My kids were 18 to 24 I didn’t divorce earlier because of them. I didn’t want them to have a broken home.My divorce lawyer wanted to investigate my husband for having an affair. I insisted that was not the situation. I later found out the kids knew all along that he was having an affair.they should have let me know the truth.

Parents and Friends of lesbians and gays it’s called pflag pflag it’s pro-gay but she’ll find some people were in the same boat as her

I was 19 when my parents divorced and had wondered for years why they had ever gotten married in the first place. Unfortunately this meant I wasn’t very empathetic with my mother who was devastated. I wish I’d been kinder.

My parents were the classic case of waiting until I got married and then divorced. Stayed together for me. Still was very difficult or me. But then when I got a divorce years later my mom didn’t speak to me for a year. She said she stayed together for my sake and I should do the same.

Did Judy really just say”Martin Sheen is really fat now”? Has nothing to do with anything, especially the topic.

What life skill did you need a little advice on?

I had to ask how long to cook a roast. I knew the temp, but not how long. I was 20 +

Asked my parents how to buy a mattress and change a tire

Once called my mom to find out where to buy “elbow grease”

Are u kidding me? My kids age 40 plus still send me mending…. even sewing on a button!!!!

I am in a daycare that instructs using Montessori these are all life skills taught to toddlers and above. They embroider wash clothes squeeze their own orange juice wash their own dishes serve their own meals the list goes on and on

When my son was a college senior he called me from the post office so I could tell him how to mail a package.

I
finally mastered a whole turkey at the age of 51 even though I have
been having the whole family over for Thanksgiving dinner for years. I
could no longer pass off just making a turkey breast so my Mom talked me
thru it. I was surprised how simple it actually was.

I’ll never forget I was a kid at
the time my mother was listening to of course Wgn and this is going back
a good 40 years. She turned it up quite loud so she could hear it over
working around in the kitchen and then the knob fell off the radio. In a
panic she called my dad down at work told him that she couldn’t turn
the radio off. He calmly advised her to unplug it.

Do you have a family memento that you don’t know what to do with?

I have my dad’s old cufflinks and have them converted into contemporary earrings and give them as a gift to my nieces when they get married.

I’m a high school history teacher. I have the kids bring in artifacts from their families. A metal is precisely a thing that is brought in. The kids like to talk about their relatives like Judy just did. It’s sweet and sometimes the stories are really interesting

I have a red winter knit hat that my dad always wore because he loved being outside no matter what time of year – it’s worth nothing but I can picture my dad when I look at it

I have my daughter’s tonsils & adenoids from 1990 in formaldehyde & she’s 35!

Right after my dad passed away my mom gave my son is electric shaver. Before he used it I removed my dads last shavings and put it in a marked envelope. After I’m gone I don’t care what is done with it because it only is something important to me.

Right before my mother’s coffin closed for the last time I asked if I could take a cutting of her hair and I have it in an envelope in my dresser

I kept Papa’s fedora….it hangs on the wall right next to the closet near the front door…silly, perhaps…but it makes me smile

I have an old fashion, magazine, picture of boy sitting outside puppy store with bottom caption “down but not out.” It was my grandfather’s favorite picture. My aunt had it lacquered onto pressed board and hung for years in grandma’s bedroom. I asked for picture and had it framed and now hangs in my bedroom. A nephew has already asked if he can have the picture. It’s a magazine picture and worthless but every family member recognizes the picture.

Funny I’ve already had the talk with my kids about this I don’t care what they throw away but the only thing I told him they have to save his my Metals iron when I was in the Marines otherwise I told them I will haunt them forever

I have a Christmas ornament my grandmother made for me. I’m 68 – she died when I was 3. Don’t know what will happen to it when I die.

still have my uncle’s glass eyes for 25+ years . don’t have the heart to throw it out.

My story is a little different I had to throw away nearly all memorabilia when my mother died because it actually tore me up so bad to see it or have it around

I dropped to my knees in tears recently when my husband bought more of the stuff from his fathers home I’ve had enough. No more

My grandma was a fabulous cook and had weekly family dinner. When she died, my brother wanted her roasting get pan. He still uses it to this day, and she’s been gone 26 years.

Wow….Just a shame this movement didn’t occur 3-4 months ago. We might have had a different President today. Day late, dollar short. Jeri-Chicago
