Recently, one of our webby friends asked . . .

Where are the new residents of Kansas City, MO moving from?

"Certainly some of the population growth can be attributed to birth rate, but where are all the other people coming from?"

But I though according to you guys, people were fleeing killa city? What happened? I thought KC was Detroit. What happened?

Even Detroit metro is growing. That's what populations tend to do. However, the urban core continues to shrink here and throughout the United States.

Fuck Kansas City, who the hell would ever want to live there or, more accurately, die there??

That makes perfect sense. Those 5 cities are all shitholes with nothing to do.

@9:07AM apparently you do, because you are on here commenting about it. Nice try though.

It's a big enough city you can socialise with Marxists or even possible postmodernist though hipsters fucked that up

What type of people are coming? Important question.

Johnson County welcomes you!
If you can act right.
And don't expect handouts, or $15 an hour.

Loved the comment about the 65,000 visitors. Who came up with THAT number, for crying out loud. If you drive through downtown any day of the week, there aren't 1,000 on the streets. Even the Plaahza doesn't have that kind of density. Facts, please...

Hey, 11:55--
those 65000 folks are all ducked down low on the trolley so the surveyers cannot see them to count them.

Lets not go stuffing ten pounds of shit into a five pound bag. There is a huge difference between regional growth and folks moving to the city of KCMO. Do your homework and you will see that the growth is regional with only a slight peripheral effect in the city proper. No one in their right mind wants to own a piece of KC or reside in a shit hole.

I tell people all the time if they are looking at buying a house not to buy one in Kansas City, one of the suburbs but not KC you will regret it.

I have a kick me sign on my ass because I didn't follow my own advise.

Only half the people who buy a house make a profit.

Good observation, 1:22.
I guess Mayor James is leading the trend...he does not own a home. He rents, at 108 E 30th, on Union Hill.

Then there is Jolie Justus, who is running for Mayor. And despite working for the law firm whose client is Burns & McDonnell, she still has not paid her 2016 Personal Property Tax to the City/county. Just like Sly James did, when he ran for re-election.

KCMO is rotting.
