To The Daily Sun,
"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 will become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance."
So said Cicero in 55 B.C.
So, we've evidently learned nothing over the past 2,071 years. I'm just sayin'.
