Correction on Cicero Quote from 11/28
Dec 06, 2008
"Truth or Fiction" informs us that the quote from Cicero, which I mentioned on Nov. 28 in the article about Peter Schiff, was embellished by whoever started it. They say . . .
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."
