Nothing new about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. That's the way it's always been. I think we need to start our own country.

I'll volunteer to serve as your new country's dowager queen. Don't need one? Fine, how about court jester? I'm a lousy juggler, but my pratfalls aren't bad.
