Kansas Blames Prez Obama For All Of Their Misfortune And TKC Told You It Was A HUGE Mistake To Rebuild Greensburg!!!
Amid recent harsh times Kansas political leaders are starting to play the blame game and Prez Obama is making the most convenient boogeyman.
Here's a bit of a fact check on the recent economic blame game that must have been part of Democratic Party talking points given how many newsies picked up the the item.
Pitch: If Sam Brownback thinks Obama's tax policies clobbered Kansas' April revenues, why didn't it affect Missouri?
Snoozy economic debating aside . . . Let's go back. How far we going back? Way back to a Kansas tragedy that inspired a renewal effort that was totally a waste of time and now leaves just about everybody feeling bitter.
ONCE AGAIN OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY HAS BEEN PROVEN CORRECT!!! GREENSBURG REBUILDING EFFORTS HAVE BEEN A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY FOR LITTLE ECONOMIC GAIN AND MOSTLY HARD FEELINGS!!!
As we approach Spring tornado season . . . Here's a couple of worthwhile Kansas City public radio links which reveal that our assertion was correct:
Kansas Town Destroyed By Tornado Spreads Blame For Lack Of Growth
"After seven years, Greensburg is stuck at half its pre-tornado population, and has few prospects for growth. Some blame trends decimating many farm towns — others point to the new green initiative"
Greensburg, Kansas Recovers From Twister Only To Face An Economic EF5
Recall TKC pronouncements back in 2007 referencing local gentrification in the midst of a misguided Greensburg rebuilding movement.
"Hell no they shouldn't rebuild Greensburg"
Another funny aside from tempting fate a bit too much with grandiose weather pronouncements (totally hope my tinfoil hat protects against lightning strikes) . . . Remember that more astute TKC Readers called out Greensburg rebuilding cheerleaders for their failure to mobilize and help New Orleans recovery following Hurricane Katrina.
Whatever the case ... This Springtime it's important to remember that Kansas conservatives have been ungrateful for nearly all of the help they have received and neither massive subsidy nor tax break schemes have changed the reality of humdrum life for most of the Sunflower State.
