    Although I agree with the quote attributed to Cicero the actual quote is: "The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and assistance to foreign hands should be curtailed, lest Rome fall."

    "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."


    - Cicero , 55 BC

    So, evidently we've learned nothing in the past 2,067 years.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    The average public assistance person could not tell you with any accuracy who Cicero was. That, in my opinion, is the heart of the problem.

    Ignorance. Its the nucleus of government dependence.
