    The cynical " Dog " Diogenes, Love of virtue and indifference to wealth. A man with a singular purpose in life. Regardless of his feelings for Plato's abstract philosophy. Socrates found Diogenes to be wise. Plato's thoughts were, Diogenes " a Socrates gone mad." Nevertheless a "dogged" stance in defense of simple truth.
    The dog is a shameless creature, who Knows friend from foe. Diogenes the " Dog" would bite his own friend for their own good.
    " Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful." Proverbs 27: 5,6 KJB

    NWO figured this out decades ago, now we have multiple generations of brainwashed propagandised Sheeple whose beliefs are anathema to Liberty.

    Democrat party has taught Sheeple that a majority of idiots trumps superior wisdom of law, as well as Founders' design.

    When you think govt is the solution to all problems, it becomes apparent the NWO education program has been wildly successful!
