"Cicero keeps Mother oiled up"

-Cicero 4E 201

The actual quote is: "The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and assistance to foreign hands should be curtailed, lest Rome fall."

In 2008, someone added all the rest to it and spread it around the internet, it was re-written that way for the specific purpose of matching what the US was facing then, and still is now.

You always see people on FJ saying how the governemnt is all wrong and how they know exactly how to fix everything and make the debt go away and take the welfare away and make the economy bloom, but instead of actually trying to fix things like becoming a governor, senator, getting more involved in politics, speaking with your senators or congressman about the problems they would rather whine on FJ which solves nothing.

Because, lets face it, people listen to people who bitch and whine on the internet, right? Oh, and those politicians are REALLY gonna have a ball when you tell them how to do their job right.    
   
I'm not saying that it's not something to complain about, I'm proposing as to why it's a bad idea.   
   
Picture is somewhat relevant.

Beats sitting on your ass whining about it. Contrary to popular belief not all politicians are bad and a lot of politicians actually listen to their people. Mind you most of those people are the older generation that actually get off their asses and go speak to them. Better to try to at least do something than do nothing.

Because 90% of the people think that history is boring and unnecessarry.  And I have to deal with those 			*******		 because I'm going to be a history teacher. Can't even name the number how many times people said to me "You becoming a history teacher? Damn that sounds boring."

My sister is a history teacher (majored in genocide). Shes one of the most interesting upbeat people i've ever known.
User avatar #166 to #155 - satrenkotheone ONLINE (11/20/2012) [-]
"Majored in genocide" da **** brah?
User avatar #173 to #166 - silasdg (11/20/2012) [-]
Yes Genocide. How can you change the current situation or prevent future genocide if you know nothing about it? Genocide is still a large problem in 3rd world countries such as Darfur, Rwanda, and Uganda. Genocide still occurs in those places and others.

My sister wants to change that. Shes traveled many times and is now teaching about it.

I love history too of every age(medieval,ancient etc),it's awesome
#162 to #142 - amuzen (11/20/2012) [-]
I know I hate history because every history teacher I've ever had has had at least one or two REALLY big flaws, for example one teacher would do things like this
Ok three page essay, due tommorow, can't be turned in late, you have to write it in pen. Whenever he gave an assignment he gave no class time and he expected you to do it that night on your own time and since he didn't accept late assignments if you had plans for that night then you were just sort of ****** .
Another history teacher I had would never write down any of her assignments, she always gave them verbally and as such her words weren't as carefully chosen, for example one question she gave was How would you change US constitution? when what she meant to say was what was the process to changing the US constitution.
So when I think history teacher I don' think, boring old guy sitting around sifting through documents, I think quirky nut case with no regards for others.
Sorry if that was a bit of a rant, I'm taking a small break from that essay he gave earlier today >_>

******* history, I love it!
#151 to #142 - odaer (11/20/2012) [-]
it's alright, at least you've only got 2012 years of history to remember.
#165 to #151 - amuzen (11/20/2012) [-]
what about the other few thousands of years before that?
User avatar #174 to #165 - kmang ONLINE (11/20/2012) [-]
in highschool, you learn modern world history. which really is the history of western civilizations from the enlightenment to WWII. then you learn american history, which is the history of the U.S. since colonization up until like past Vietnam but before relatively recent presidents after failed campaigns in both south korea and and vietnam. literally, what you learn in history class is AWESOME to learn if the teacher doesn't drone on and on with a dull powerpoint and how much is really what the teacher learned 10-20 years and knows well. I love history, i just dont like history because i had a history of boring teachers, and my U.S. History teacher made me love it because he shows his enthusiasm he has while teaching

"we need to get more money, and stop corruption and waste"

maverick ideas like that just aren't heard of anymore. great ideas, don't get me wrong, but since when has the question ever been what, and not how?

Being a philosopher and a spokesman...he kinda the neglected the obvious question of how we should do that.
User avatar #167 to #159 - konradkurze (11/20/2012) [-]
well he was a philosopher, statesman, lawyer, orator, political theorist, consul and constitutionalist
mostly he seemed good at coming up with ideas and theories but not carrying them out
