NOBODY WANTS TO LIVE IN KANSAS!!!

Read between the lines of a recent promotional screed and realize that flyover county needs a desperate marketing ploy even in the midst of a pandemic. Whilst keyboard warriors boast of "safety" in the suburbs . . . And even the "security" that comes with vast fields of dirt in rural areas . . . A quiet life of desperation remains a tough sell.

Accordingly, here's just a bit of proof that Kansas life stays losing and only illegal immigrants working garbage jobs offer the last chance to save so many sparsely populated areas of the Sunflower State:

Wink Hartman: We must find new ways to bring people to Kansas

Earlier this month, Kansas lawmakers heard from leaders of our state's tourism industry about the economic impact COVID-19 has had on the industry and predict a three-year recovery at least.A recovery for our state's tourism industry is not something that will be instantaneous, given the multitiered nature of the industry and a likely downtown turn in conventions and conferences.

No we do not need "new ways".
Fuck 'em. We don't want you here.
Move to shithole KCMO.

^^^^I agree

Maybe it never occured to you Wink but flyover country likes not being Seattle or New York City. Especially now. And if you want "new ways" of doing things? Get in touch with Q Ball. He will be looking for a change of employment. Just don't ask him to build an airport. That won't end well. Jus' sayin.

不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不

Get rid of the stupid grocery sales tax. Only seven states tax groceries and Kansas is one of them.

Most if the new job openings are on the Kansas side. Wish it wasn't true as a victim of the virus, want to work closer to home.

Excuse me. Everybody wants to live in Kansas. Everybody who is anybody does actually live in Kansas. That’s where the wealth is. It ain’t in Missouri... properly pronounced Misery.

You want decent law abiding people to come to Kansas????? Get rid of Sharice Davids and Kelly, Guaranteed they are the ones who will take Kansas down, just look around at the other states and cities around the country. Get them out before you sink.

Oh and to 7:26 the wealth has been leaving Kansas for years and you are getting you fair share of crime and low quality people which OP never had before. Everyone is moving and building in rural areas with acreage and yes it's in Missouri. Properly pronounced MISSOURI. IDIOT.

I moved out of KC years ago and I'm 100% glad I did. Way out in the sticks. Dad came over for steaks a couple weekends ago, we had a few beers while I was firing up the grill and getting the steaks ready, and we stood in my driveway and shot his new 9mm pistol at the burn barrel at the bottom of the hill. Can't do that at 35th and Prospect. Last night we howled at the moon around a fire, drinking beers and jamming to the oldies until almost 2:00AM. Can't do that in Briarcliff. If you can get out of the city, and get a few acres, it will be good for you and your family. The rural life is a good life.

^^Umm yea, it’s so good that you’re here on a blog about KC @7:57PM on a Sunday night. You’re bored as shit and lonely out in the sticks otherwise you wouldn’t be stuck on a blog about a city you profess to hate. Nice try. It won’t be long before you stick that 9MM in your mouth and do what you’ve been contemplating for a while now. Do it CHID, you played yourself!

Don't come to Kansas! It's terrible. You Missouri people would be bored. Don't come here. Really.

827, don’t be such a douchebag. People should live wherever they want, city, suburbs or country. My folks retired to a country setting several years ago and built a new house. It’s beautiful there. They are completely content. I wouldn’t be content there on a permanent basis but I love to visit. And if you think everyone that lives in the city is happy to be there, you’re even dumber than you sound.

Bandit said...

People in Kansas Shitty seem really happy to be living there over say the last 6 months or so

Kansas born, Kansas bred, and when gone Kansas dead said...

Everybody I have ever known that moved to Kansas love being here. Clean air, excellent roads, great city services, lower taxes, friendly people overall, superior schools and your money goes farther than in California, New York, Seattle, LA, Atlanta, Florida and every democrat run state or city. I have never owned property outside of Kansas and I never will. But I implore you that should you move to Kansas to leave your liberal politics behind, we don't want them here.

Brownback ruined Kansas with what he called an "experiment". Well the science experiment failed. Now we have to suffer. Brownback should be jailed for treason. Even Saturday night Live made jokes about him and Kansas. We are a laughing stock of the world thanks to him. The team he hired from Florida to reform the Dept of Aging was a group of idiots who quit before being fired.

I would just like to remind everyone that Wink Hartman was the running mate to Kris Kobach’s failed 2018 bid for Kansas governor. They lost to now governor Laura Kelly. Kobach only picked him because Hartman had a lot of money to waste in the Kobach campaign. Money cannot buy class or decency.

Everyone on here is a moron! Think for yourself for once and try it first before posting your ridiculous and unchecked viewpoints.

Adam Taft, Brownback, Kobach. Reasons why people stay away from Kansas!

Sometimes a peaceful place is needed and your life is what you make of it .no matter where you go ppl will always complain instead of being thankful to experience what more life has to offer.sometimes living in the big city with alot going on isnt best all the time. So instead of complaining change your life direction and do what makes you happy. Whats best for you may not be best for someone else.

And because everybody isn't there thats why i choose to make it my new home environment ...i heard ppl say they love it

If your young, Lawrence, KS is cool. It is a college town (KS Jayhawks) between KC and Topeka. The school system is better the most places in U.S. You can always find something to do. Northeast KS is pretty populated. The only thing, It's HUMID af!

I was born and raised in Kansas and loved it. We just relocated from California to Ohio and stopped to visit family in Kansas.. Made me miss it even more. I left the state afer 2nd year at college and have not lived there since but still love it!

Douglas County is the only Democrat county in KS because it's a college town and pretty much liberal, I think, which is understandable. It would suck if it was full of close-minded conservative Republicans. We understand the that the U.S. is a country made up of immigrants from other countries (except for the 573 Indigenous Tribes) that was considered to be the land of opportunity with equal rights to start a new life with a united, diverse government and justice for all, unlike their countries that they were from, Because of this fact, you can't have close-minded conservative Republicans that won't let it be what it was intended to be.

Legalize medical and recreational marijuana. More people would not be moving out of Kansas.

Wichita's cool.
Kinda boring but it's ok.

Don't listen to the haters, of either Kansas or Democratic party members. I moved here from St. Louis in 1976 & never regretted it. There are plenty of progressives here in certain enclaves & we celebrate our diversity, penchant for social justice, and varied artistic inclinations. It's never boring in Lawrence.

Unknown said...

Home is where you make it! (no I don’t want to see homo’s naked :)). We don’t need more people we need to figure out how to keep the ones we got. JOBS! Grow Hemp, Harvest wind and follow the yellow brick road! There is gold in these two industries!

Kansas should start with legalizing Cannabis.Both medicinal and recreational. Many jobs to be created.
