Located in Fresno County, the city began as a humble stop on the San Joaquin Railroad.  Land developers always arrive to do their thing, working land deals, about any new or proposed railway station.  In 1890-2, a group of Fresno businessmen brought the railway to town and in doing so, purchased the right-of-way from Clovis farmers as well as the surrounding territory. Sadly, this is formula of how to make big money. Insiders use insider information and have access to cash to take advantage of the situation. All the while, good honest work that forms the real backbone of the country strong my not necessarily be rewarded. While these entrepreneurs and their financiers are the catalyst in making it all happen,  too many low life gamers scoop off more than their fair share of the cream.  Does capitalism equate to insider deals and foul play?  No, cheaters cheat, to get more than their fair share, no matter what the system.
