Porcupine's Quill

News Item:  Trump goes to Davos.  Oxfam's wealth inequality report is released.  It
showed the top one percent took 82 percent of the world's wealth generated in 2017
while the bottom 50 percent got nothing.  Also 42 people own as much as the 3.7
billion people making up the bottom half.

Incredible!  Amazing!  I have to congratulate you.  You have gone hog wild and the
economy is booming.

Yes, Mr. President.  If I may add ... not just in the U.S. but across the developed world.

You mean not in the shithole African countries ...

That word causes trouble ...

Yes, yes, I am sorry.  And Europe could do with a little extra effort.  We should not
have to rely on the Chinese locomotive.  It is going to be a great, fantastic boom, the
greatest the world has seen.  And we can scoop up the cream.  Don't worry, the
healthy milk left is good for the 99 percent.

And yes, here in the U.S., it will be a great country again for everyone -- except the
thieves and murderers they send us from Mexico.  We are going to ship them right
back and build a great wall.  Yes, and those bums from those shithole African
countries, they too.  Okay, okay, I shouldn't use that word.  But it's the best way I
have to describe 'em.

As I said before, we should be getting more immigrants from Norway and places like
that.  And we will make America great again ...  greater than it's ever been, by the
time I leave office -- greater and whiter.  Oops!  I am not supposed to say that.  Strike
it out ... and also those 'shithole' references, true though they may be in my not so
humble opinion ...
