Born Under a Bad Sign

Robert Heinlein once wrote:

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as “bad luck.”

California’s Blue State mentality is working hard to generate as much bad luck for the state as possible; a record number of Heinlein’s “tiny minority” are being driven out of society.

This is known as Sacramento.
