Quote of the Day

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be filled, 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 be bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."

Cicero - 55 BC
....and u know how Rome got away with it for so long - they secretly reduced the silver content in the coins (aka DEBASED/printed money) more and more - until they were worthless....and then the Empire imploded, ushering in the Dark ages...

History might not repeat itself, but it sure does rhyme.
