Stupid. Half of the country voted for him. Do you think that you'll get anywhere by insulting them? Hillary tried that and her "deplorable" comment cost her thousands of votes.

What a loser you are.

As upside down as KCMO's financial condition is, all the money the feds could pour into it wouldn't begin to fill the hole.
And the council and smiley selfies Lucas just keep digging, even as the city's condition gets worse.
They just don't know what else to do.
Bankruptcy happens very slowly.
Then very very quickly.
KCMO is a sucking chest wound on the entire region.
West of the state line never looked more inviting.
