Some 22 year-old east coast "journalist" slumming in the mid-west?
The HuffPo is really stretching itself!
They need to come back in about 18 months to see where these exciting "entrepreneurs" are.
Most likely behind a counter.

Given that it takes almost 11 years for a new Walmart to get in the black I'd say these entitlement federal loan grabbing dreamers have got a long road before they have proven they are capable of producing anything positive.

Push back is starting requiring much more rigor and hard results quantification regarding puffed entrepreneur sunshine pumping from the bow tie crowd. They want to fake it til they make it. Please ask harder questions and track real results and opportunity costs in mindshare, time, cash, and government priority and attention. Or do what Sly does, bullhorn entrepreneur, Google, Streetcar, Airport instead of actually fix governmental basics. Misguided low result crony pork.

Vote Elon, reject Sly and the fix

Now he will probably need to tear down a fountain, remember Sly had nothing to say on MU. Same Cleaver, same Umkc chancellor at the time

That is leadership, please, same worn out bs. Elon for president.
