The ancient Latins were a very wise people (they ruled the world for many centuries) and had lots of folk wisdom paced into statements of a few words like:

CAVEAT EMPTOR (buyer beware)

TEMPUS FUGIT (time flies)

NON CARBORUNDUM EST (don't let them wear you down)

CARPE DIEM (seize the day)

MULTUM IN PARVO (a lot in a little)

ans so on. We need a new one to help us through the AW resitration schizophrenia. NON CARBORUNDUM EST is certainly applicable, but how about something like "wait the bastards out" or something similar...

You mean the Romans.

The Latins are the guys that cruise the neighborhoods of soCal in 65 Chevys.

You can have my family motto:

Per ardua surgo

I rise through difficulties, or I overcome challenges.

What's the Latin for "Move to New Mexico, and live free! (And broke.)"

I moved from the PRK a year ago... now have my AR15, my CCW, two of the things I dreamed of and couldn't have in California.

Don't miss the beach at all!

Except we are all now getting AR-15s, many (including me) could get their CCW if thye just paid and took the class, and yet we still get the beach and the money. Yeah, smart choice there.


And I guess "Upos Yoursacus DOJacus" isn't real latin, is it?
