I don't know who this chick is, but she's resting her right hand on some hot fasces action:

Yeah. You ever see that tied up bundle of sticks? That's what's known as fasces. They were carried around by lictors in ancient rome as they followed behind important people, the kind of important people whose position required that they have lictors following them around with fasces. What's a lictor you ask? Ask the internet. What do I look like, Information Please?

Mussolini was so inspired by the fasces that he named his political party after them. Funny that a fascist symbol (quite literally) should be all over the U.S. Government (it was on the back of the "Mercury" dime, for example, and once you know what it is, you'll see them everywhere). No, I'm not some Alex Jones conspiracy nut or anything. I just think it's humorous.
