Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The CA Cohort of Petty Landlord is a stereotype, Frank, of republican with a keen interest in money marketing and wealth accumulation. For the Petty Landlord the purpose of government is to siphon by taxation and careless expenditures real property and unearned income value to line the purses of equally petty bureaucrats who have been trained in communist propaganda in any case. One might even say, regardless of the Petty Landlord's physical location, gender, religion, or partisan inclination, this person is comforted by security in status quo --in so far as inequality insures profit, guaranteed income, and temperate indoor/outdoor conditions for recreation. It is a parochial worldview.

A conservative observer, the Petty Landlord is quick to detect threats, slow to assimilate opportunities which cannot be validated by prior experience, or plain English, whichever comes first. These instincts and generally thin distribution of the cohort present difficulties for the casual ethnographer who is interested in cataloging its range and customs by any other name.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
