Tradition: Kansas City Pretends To Care About Po'folk For Thanksgiving

A quick reality check . . . 

Most of this year has been spent pushing back against "advocacy" for the homeless that includes MILLIONS in free money, housing and a sketchy tiny home scheme that might be going in your backyard. 

And so it would be hypocritical to pretend to care about these poor schlubs today.

To be fair, we didn't notice many advocates for the homeless offering to take in house guests or pay some of BILLIONS worth of unpaid fees that built up during the federally mandated COVID rent strike.

And yet . . .

It's a Kansas City tradition to feign concern for the homeless today with hokey reporting of food giveaways.

Here's today's installment . . .
