It would be different if the ford plant was actually in kc, it’s in claycomo, the truth of the matter is most ford workers don’t live in killa shitty. Smart move on their part to avoid being murdered and paying those ridiculous taxes, think I’m lying? Ask a ford worker for yourself.

Some Ford/Claycomo current personnel and retirees are here in our Dotte burbs near KS Speedway, and rural surrounds. Same for GM/Fairfax. Those UAW wages afforded them decent homes situated in the good public school districts of Piper, Basehor,Bonner Springs, and Tonganoxie.

Bring ALL those vehicle components manufacturing jobs to our nation. Asia and Mexico have plenty of the electronics production for phones, TVs, appliances, lawn equipment, watercrafts, and too much more.

It's MAGA that KCK has immigrants who are buying the new and near-new cars and trucks. I'm seeing real nice rides with WY tags throughout the older hoods, at the Spanish masses, Sporting soccer, T-bones, and many shopping spots. Gracias!

Doesn't anyone remember that "releasing water to keep upstream dams from collapsing" was the cause of the 1993 floods we experienced?

Deja Vu all over again!
