History repeats thy self

So what have we learned in 2 Millennia?

 "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
.....Evidently nothing.

I believe it has been said that those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it ...

All I can say is we have learned nothing and we continue to vote in or allow "Dumb Ass Idiots" to run our world...
It is pretty sad to think mankind in general is this stupid to allow idiots to run or dictate our world and we follow behind right on down the rat hole to distruction time and time again!

We have technology, news and knowledge at a blink of an eye and we are still in the same boat!

Sad, isn't it...

And in todays world there is no $$$ it is all make believe and real work is not how you get it! Pretty scarey I tell you! You can be 20 years old, drive a Vovo, have a new house, new furniture, fully landscaped yard, pool and still have money on a card to burn... That really is scary!

How do people dream in todays world????
