Back at Fort Polk, La., a few decades ago, we were organized into fire teams, squads, platoons, companies and battalions (smallest to largest). I expect that hasn’t changed much since then.

Now I’m hearing that the U.S. Congress has a squad. Just one. And a bunch of caucuses. These people are so poorly organized they can’t get anything worthwhile done, and never will.

I grant you President Trump has a big mouth, but I do like almost all of his agenda. It’s better to teach a man to fish than to give him a fish.

I’m not a racist, and I don’t think Trump is one, but I’m not so sure about everybody else.

Tell somebody a joke today. Have a laugh. We take ourselves far too seriously.
