Humanity needs a best friend

I have a dog – this is my dog we’re talking about here, not yours. I apologize for blunt behavior, but you see, she goes in circles. We can afford for her to go in circles; she’ll stand at the door, wait, walk around the backyard to see if anybody notices and if nobody is at the door, she’ll do it all over again, all day, every day.

She chases her tail, and cleans and washes her behind. But other people can’t afford to have a dog like that, definitely not blind people – a blind person could be taken around the block three times with our dog before they realize they’re not at the market yet, misled because they trusted something sold to them as a seeing-eye dog, when the dog isn’t looking for anything except food. Trust for a world they cannot observe upon themselves.

The painting of dogs playing poker is of historical relevance to the imagery of Congress, with the welfare of the state is being bet upon, folded upon and used as a bargaining chip. Blame is easy when there’s only two breeds of dogs. If there were two biting you in the behind, it’s more noticeable who the culprit is, but if there’s a larger lineup, picking them out of a lineup would be more difficult. If there were multiple breeds defecating on the floor of the House, it’d be more impressive than just two.

It appears there are canines sinking their teeth into the behinds of individuals instead of having the self-respect to guide the blind as previously instructed to do so. Bad dogs in Washington, D.C., leave nothing but howling for the rest of us. Dirty politics sticking toilet paper to spots, calling them clean, then asking for our trust.

Some people can afford to watch dogs go in circles over and over again,but as for the U.S., we need human’s best friend and loyalty to humanity.
