Will Rogers was a very astute man. My favorite quote from him: “I don’t make jokes, I just watch the government and report the facts!” Guess you could say that applies pretty close to our situation today.

The best I have read lately is the following: Trump is entering the terrible twos. What he’s doing is so normal for 2-year-olds:


* Two is a physically exhausting and trying time. ** Two-year-olds have a hard time making up their mind! Then they want to change it!

* Their understanding of the world and life is still so limited.

* Then they become bolder and more daring with experiments.

* Two is a great age for whining and negativism is at new heights!

* They feel their being bossed even when they try to boss others.

* They insist on deciding things alone and resist pressure from others.

Oh yes! Terrible twos are defined by tantrums and worse for those less flexible. So, what do you do? Well, they are living in an adult world but don’t have all the tools to make it work, thus conflicts with their parents. A stretch my friends, but we are Trump’s parents! The electorate, Congress — all of us — and we’re doing it wrong! Left alone he tweeted all during the holidays and now, many say, the White House aides are giving him too much “executive time!” You know, try yelling at a 2-year-old. It only makes their tantrums last longer! Happily, the Twos don’t last forever! Try to stay calm and praise yourself! (From Dana Milbank, Washington Post columnist).

A little girl asked her mom if she could take their dog for a walk. Mom replies, “No, because she is in heat!” The little girl asks, “What is that?” Mom says, “Go ask your father! He’s in the garage.” So she says to her dad, “I want to take Belle for walk, but Mom said she is in heat and I needed to ask you. Dad says: “Bring Belle over here.” He takes a rag, soaks it with gasoline, scrubs the dog’s back side, then says: “OK, you can go, and keep Belle on the leash!” In a few minutes , the girl returns with no dog on the leash! Dad asks:” Where’s Belle?” The little girl replies:“Oh, she ran out of gas down the block, so another dog is pushing her home!”


To close with a few one liners: ** Dogs can’t operate a MRI scanner, but CATSCAN! ** Our mountains aren’t just funny, they’re Hill Areas!! ** Turning vegan would be a Big Missed Steak! ** Whenever I try to eat healthy, a chocolate bar looks at me and Snickers! ** For chemist, alcohol is not a problem … It’s a solution! ** and the grand finale: Despite the high cost of living, it remains popular!

That’s it, my friends … be well, do good deeds … aloha, a hui hou.
