Kansas City Amazon HQ2 Propaganda

Again, it's not going to happen but that doesn't stop newsies from suggesting otherwise:

Amazon's HQ2: How Kansas City might fulfill this tall order - Kansas City Business Journal

Calling Amazon.com Inc.'s search for a second headquarters "big" is about like saying Arrowhead Stadium is "noisy" on game day. The company that rarely does anything small or conventional put out a public call for metropolitan areas nationwide to compete for what it's calling HQ2.

How much money has been wasted this time trying to get amazon when they don’t want to come here in the first place???

Bribing someone to do something rarely works out in the long run.

Amazon is not looking to put HQ2 in a broken city like Kansas City. The only thing we have going for us is an established faggot and lesbian community so their queers would feel comfortable here.

^^^^^

A science town?????? NOT, Amazon would be foolish to come here, we are #6 most dangerous city.

The art fair was even a bust! The plaza has turned into a discount shopping area that's not safe anymore. I agree Kansas City is broken and is a dying city.

Amazon is not going to do shit in the city of Kansas City when it can go one mile outside the city limits and enjoys lower property taxes, not collect earnings taxes, facilitate employee parking, have easy access for inbound and outbound shipping and not deal with the whims and politics of the amateurs at city hall. I am willing to bet anyone any amount on this one. What KC has to offer (some warm bodies), Amazon can easily lure out of the city (where both UPS and Fedex huns are located) or across the state line for that matter.

I just returned from San Francisco. Their local newscasts are all about flirting with Amazon as well. What a joke, all the free publicity Amazon has garnered.

cities are suckers.
