Just to keep thing in prospective
"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."
- Cicero - 55 BC
This alleged quote from Marcus Tullius Cicero that began circulating on the Internet in October, 2008, is based on a true statement from the great Roman orator, but someone added a lot to it to make it match some of what the United States was facing economically.
The actual quote is: "The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and assistance to foreign hands should be curtailed, lest Rome fall."
This is according to the TruthOrFiction website.
Just wanting to clarify this some. Good day all!
Moderator Moni, Thanks for the clarification and the complete quote.
Wishing you and all the Moderators all the best in this coming holiday season.
Thanks so much Luckiest! And the same to you and yours! May 2012 be a lucrative year for all small businesses and our struggling economy!
How do you guys feel about the failure of the supercommittee? What effects (if any) do you think it will have and how long will it take to see them?
Personally I think they'll get their act together and come up with an agreement by tonight (their actual deadline)... it seems like politics as usual.
Here's a blog outlining what's going on in case you haven't heard the news: What Does the Supercommittee Failure Mean for Small Business?
