A bit of cultural enlightenment for you

My friend Andy Owen, speaker, copywriter extraordinaire and good pal sent me this:

"The budget should be balanced and the Treasury should be refilled.

Public debt should be reduced and the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled.

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
