Who Said It?

Here’s the quote:

“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled. Public debt should be reduced. The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled.  The assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest we become bankrupt.  People must again learn to work,  instead of living on public assistance.”

Who said it?

     Obama? Reagan? Trudeau? Thatcher? Truman? Nixon? Jesus?  Gingrich? O’Reilly?  Rather? Clinton?  Jerry Brown?  Agran?                                                              - 

 

Nope….  It was Cicero… more than 2,000 years ago.  The more thing change….

    Wow, I was afraid for a second you were going to tell me it was Larry Agran and he was switching to the Republican Party, to once again run for President.

    Let’s see now, not being a historical scholar, I seem to remember something about the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. Perhaps, they should have listened to Cicero? With America on the verge of bankruptcy, do you think it might be history repeating itself?

    Pat – since you seem to have forgotten Liberals were in charge during WWII, I’ll forgive you for forgetting that our current economic crisis wass the result of the last administration

      Keep on spinning “Dan the Man,” while I acknowledge and condemn GWB and the RINO’s in Congress, for their part of the mess we are in today, let us not forget that the Democrats controlled both the House and Senate during Bush’s last two years, plus eighteen months under the Obama bunch. Dan, there is adequate blame to go around to all sides, but the critical question is how do we plug holes in the dike to keep it from collapsing. Even many Democrats are starting to wake up and recognize the corner we have painted ourselves into, but they are in the minority. When the dike bursts, it will be too late.
