Fear The Kansas Brain Drain

While the Border War has companies fighting over jobs . . . The big picture is that recent grads don't want to stay in Kansas by an even greater percentage . . . Check this op/ed the next time somebody says that "flyover country" is still a myth: Editorial: Why are college graduates saying "goodbye" to Kansas?

"Editorial: Why are college graduates saying "goodbye" to Kansas?"

Because there isn't a PHD alive that knows jack shit about how to milk a cow or grow wheat.

New grads have always left Kansas because it's got only one county that even comes close to being a reasonable place to live and work, and the rest of it is just a crabgrass-infested shithole full of bible-thumping loons. Now that its state government is near bankruptcy, lots more than before are leaving. You find that hard to understand? You don't even believe it? You weren't one of the ones smart enough to leave.

Most of those leaving are non believers. We call them heathens and the damned. They are not missed. If they were smart enough to form their own LLC and get rich with a MLM plan they would stay. As they are not that smart, they should watch that the door don't hit 'em where the good lord split 'em!

Kumbyahah and don't vote for any Kenyan Alinsky type dope smokers!

There are a couple of hints here as to why educated and talented people are escaping Kansas at light speed: "Most of those leaving are non believers. We call them heathens and the damned" and "Because there isn't a PHD alive that knows jack shit about how to milk a cow or grow wheat." Superstition and ignorance are not strong calling cards for anyone who can read and think. If you think there is much future in milking cows or growing wheat, you haven't made a trip to the country in a while. Robots are milking the cows and wheat has been replaced with corporate welfare corn and the countryside is abandoned because the number of people required to do those jobs has become damn close to zero. As for "non believers," join the 21st century and look outside of your closet and you'll see that superstition is less popular everywhere, not just outside of your Kansas Armageddon bunker.
