CELEBRATE FATHER'S DAY TOP FIVE REVEALING KANSAS CITY IS A HORRIBLE PLACE TO RAISE A FAMILY!!!
So much Kansas City development and tax break hype is powered by the misguided, mistaken and deceptive notion that the younger generation is flocking to the urban core in search of the good life.
The reality is that not much has changed about the American dream and a vibrant multicultural city is mostly just a destination for a modicum of tourists and day trippers.
Economic reminder . . .
Wall Street Journal: Generation Y Prefers Suburban Home Over City Condo
And so, with respect of so much chatter about diversity, let's not forget that Fatherhood is the foundation of the family which is still the building block of civilization and community.
Accordingly . . .
FOR OUR TKC FATHER'S DAY TRIBUTE LET'S NOT FORGET THAT KANSAS CITY REMAINS A HORRIBLE PLACE FOR FAMILIES!!!
Check our math and realize that KC's stagnant population growth compared with surrounding suburbs confirms our conclusions.
Here's our list . . .
Papa's Won't Find Good Public Schools For Their Children In Kansas City Proper
The Kansas City Public School District is provisionally accredited and over the years the institution has seen a mass exodus of every demographic from within its ranks. Even worse, efforts to escape the district have been thwarted by politicos who fight desperately to cling to enrollment numbers tied to funding.
Rising Kansas City Crime And Murder Count Might Threaten The Old Man
Most Dads don't want their families living in a war zone and recent spikes in local violence and murder should be something that might give a local pappy a moment of pause.
Rampant Blight Plagues Paterfamilias
Good Dads are known for keeping up their lawns and maintaining their homes . . . While City Hall hopes that demolitions and home improvement programs can substitute for a man of the house - The Broken Windows Theory might have more to do with broken homes than anyone cares to realize.
Daddy Doesn't Like Corrupt KCMO Politics
During a public television debate a founding family member of Kansas City, Crosby Kemper said the streetcar vote was: "The single-most undemocratic election in Kansas City since the Pendergast era." Sadly, even more of these tragic votes are being proposed so that a small sect of development consultants can dictate taxes to families throughout the city.
Patriarchs Confront Constitutionally Protected 2nd Amendment Gun Rights Threatened By City Hall
A lot of Dads like their guns. Sadly, Kansas City political leadership has declared war on gun rights over the past few years and blamed the 2nd Amendment and its defenders for rising gun crime committed mostly by crooks and their illegal weapons. While the nanny state has proven ineffective at preventing violence, the affront to the principles set forth by the Founders isn't appreciated by any local father with a sense of history.
And so . . . For this reasons and so many more . . .
We wish our readers a Happy Father's Day for those brave souls still residing in this town.
