"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."
Marcus Tullius Cicero, 55BC, SPQR!

Sounds good, but Cicero didn't actually say that.

Yeah, but that doesn't stop it from being re-posted here over and over again. :p
Wait... just wait a few weeks, and some one will get an email that they'll just 'have to share'.
"It was funny", "I thought I would post it."
Redundancy is about the only thing the 'right' gets 'right'. JD;)

Wait a minute. I think you just posted a similar comment last week about one of my posts. Apparently the right isn't the only group capable of redundancy.

Are you saying you aren't allied with the right side of the aisle?

I don't know who SAID that, but Clinton was the last president to DO it. Balanced budget, welfare reform, and the largest decrease in public assistance ranks. I know that's a bitter pill to swallow for many!

Cicero's death was a violent one and his hands were cut off and nailed to the door of the Senate.

Maybe something we should consider today;-)

Cicero pissed off Marc Antony by insulting his intelligence in public and openly opposed Julius Caesar takeover of the Senate. When Caesar Augustus became Counselor of Rome, he purged the city of all aristocrats and government officals that opposed his authority. Marc Antony suggested that Cierco be added to the list.;-) Marc Antony warned Ciero years earlier that if he didn't get with the program that he would have his hands cut off and nailed to the doors of the Senate.

I thought Marc Antony was mad because someone mentioned how big a rear end his wife Jennifer Lopez has and how she has no business judging American Idol
