There's Nothing New Under the 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 foreigh lands should be curtailed
lest Rome become bankrupt.
People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Born 3 Jan 106 BC
Murdered 7 Dec 43 BC

It seems, in over 2,000 years, people still haven't learned some pretty basic lessons. We know how the story ended for Rome . . . .
