Nancy Pelosi met with the Queen of England. She asked her, “Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give to me?”
“Well,” said the Queen, “The most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people.”
Pelosi frowned, and then asked, “But how do I know if my associates are really intelligent?”
The Queen took a sip of tea. “Oh, that’s easy: you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle.”
The Queen pushed a button on her intercom. “Please send Boris Johnson in here, would you?”
Boris Johnson walked into the room and said, “Yes, Your Majesty?”
The Queen smiled and said, “Answer me this please, Boris, your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?”
Without pausing for a moment, Boris answered, “That would be me.”
“Yes! very good,” said the Queen.
Pelosi went back home to ask Joe Biden, the same question. “Joe, answer this for me. “Your mother and your father have a child. It’s not your brother and it’s not your sister. Who is it?”
“I’m not sure,” said Biden. “Let me get back to you on that one.”
He went to his advisors and asked everyone, but none could give him an answer.
Finally, Biden ran into Jim Jordan, while out eating one night. Biden asked, “Jim, can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it’s not your brother or you sister. Who is it?” Jim Jordan answered right back, “That’s easy, it’s me!”
Biden smiled , and said, “Thanks!” Then he went back to speak with Pelosi. “Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It’s Jim Jordan.”
Pelosi got up, stomped over to Biden, and angrily yelled into his face. “No, you idiot! It’s Boris Johnson!”
AND, THAT IS PRECISELY WHAT WILL BE GOING ON IN THE WHITE HOUSE FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS!!!
Blessed are those that can give without remembering and take without forgetting.
One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’ The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.
Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’ The cop was happy and left the shop.
The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.
Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The Congressman was very happy and left the shop.
The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.
And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.
As Ronald Reagan said:
“Both politicians and diapers need to be changed often and for the same reason.”
I have tuned myself out of politics, because they will suck for the next two years, minimum. There is always the possibility that the mid-terms may make me SMILE.
During this self-imposed period of brain dormancy, I enjoy thinking back to moments of my care-free days of childhood.
Do you remember playing Hide-and-Seek? I know you do, or you would not be reading my post.
Believe me, no young people enter Tolley’s Topics….at least, not intentionally.
But, just in case one stumbled in by accident after charging their cell phone batteries, I will explain the game.
Hide and Seek is an old and popular children’s game in which one player closes his or her eyes for a brief period (often counting to 100) while the other players hide. The seeker then opens his eyes and tries to find the hiders; the first one found is the next seeker, and the last is the winner of the round.
I am the youngest of the Tolley siblings and among the youngest in my childhood neighborhood. In retrospect, we all know the aggravation of baby-sitting “little brats,” don’t we? It may be younger sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews, neighbors, etc. Still they remain, aggravating little brats.
Well, to make a long story short, I was twenty years old (I kid you not) before my older sister confessed to me that she and her friends never actually looked for me when we were playing Hide and Seek.
I was hiding, but they were not seeking me!
That explains why they were always playing Parcheesi when I finally came out of hiding.
Since they never found me…I am The Champion of Hide and Seek!
Let Biden lock down DC like a Concentration Camp, and let things crash. We haven’t heard from Pennsylvania yet.
Troops are still in DC to keep patriots from protesting. Maybe the patriots can peacefully protest at all streets/highways leading into DC, during the illegal impeachment.
This is in Biden’s mind.
Democrats in America want to free the monkeys, and give them voting rights.
I would like to put the Congressional Democrats on this until they told the truth. Don’t look down. The highest point is your current take-home-pay. The low point is minus about one thousand dollars for voting Democratic.
The Hong Kong Editor: Our friends in Hong Kong want to know how the New York City—Washington D.C. government cartels work, LL.
Answer Cat: They work like the oil cartels that started in the 1970’s. They band together and set a price, no negotiations.
THKE: That sounds like America’s Media-including Facebook, Twitter, Google, Apple, and the others, AC.
Freedom Cat: It’s the same, they control what news is released, but it is all fake. These Billionaires have all the money anyone could want so their next goal is power–as in taking votes away from anyone not a Dung Beetle Democrat.
THKE: It sounds like they are politically-economically inbred, FC. They swap roles from businesses in New York to politicians in D.C. They seem to be out of touch with any regular person, it’s almost like they are psychotic.
Liberty Cat: They have lost touch with reality. Here is a smaller example, that is easier to follow. The title is how to take over California. The California Plan is being established in D.C., since Joe’s stolen election.
This is Hill-arious. Hillgal deleted over 30,000 emails, and cleaned three computers. The DOJ/MSM is for the rich, Antifa, BLM, and politicians.
Everyone needs an air horn.
Dr. Fauci is the highest paid government employee, paid with tax money. Biden’s Chinese gifts don’t count.
Fauci’s earnings were exactly how many people his policies helped kill, as of last Wednesday.
RIP Cloris Leachman.
Don’t let your freedom slip away. You need to peacefully protest like us Kongers. The commie dems might shoot you.
Explanation: On January 21, light from the Moon near first quarter illuminated the foreground in this snowy mountain and night scene. Known as The Lions, the striking pair of mountain peaks are north of Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada, North America, planet Earth. Poised above the twin summits, left of Deneb alpha star of the constellation Cygnus, are emission regions NGC 7000 and IC 5070. Part of a large star forming complex about 1,500 light-years from Vancouver, they shine with the characteristic red glow of atomic hydrogen gas. Outlines of the bright emission regions suggest their popular names, The North America Nebula and The Pelican Nebula. The well-planned, deep nightscape is a composite of consecutive exposures made with a modified digital camera and telephoto lens. Foreground exposures were made with camera fixed to a tripod, background exposures were made tracking the sky. The result preserves sharp natural detail and reveals a range of brightness and color that your eye can’t quite see on its own.
