All The News That Fits

What Have We Learned in Four Millennia?

Posted by Nancy on January 9, 2009

With a tip of the hat to our esteemed President-to-be-who-can’t-wait-will-he-takes-office-to-act-like-he-already-has-and-must-act-immediately-to-save-us-by-spending-an-additional-trillion-dollars-we-don’t-have, I offer the following:

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.
