Even though just this morning I have pointed out the distinction between the way Kansas and Missouri operate - Kansas City straddles the state line,
and both states' actions affect me and hundreds of thousands of other people who live in the metro area - I want to share a problem with Kansas's
governor and legislature as well.
This article is written as an "obituary" but very succinctly elucidates how Kansas is in decline.
I know much of ATS think that Kansans are all ignorant hayseeds and rednecks drooling in wheat fields who've never seen a tree - this is so far from
the truth that it's laughable. Yes, there is farming going on, mostly in the western half, and the Flint Hills do seem desolate indeed, but the
eastern part of Kansas is forested, hilly, and home to many very well-educated people.
I am in regular contact with my Rep and Senator, so consider myself involved at this time. I'm starting to wonder, in light of recent atrocities all
over our nation, if Governors are really in cahoots with the darkness that is going on on Capitol Hill and in other western countries, especially the
U.K. What the hell is going on?!!
Here's the obituary link, I urge everyone to read it to learn more about Kansas. We aren't all backward bible-thumping toothless hicks. But it seems
those that would fit that description (yes, there are SOME) are contributing to the demise of social structure here.
RIP, the once-great
state of Kansas
The state is preceded in death by fair taxation, good highways, strong education, family farms, a good public parks and wildlife system, open
government, neighborliness and belief in helping each other out, freely elected public servants, and political moderation.
Kansas is survived by widespread poverty, low-wage jobs, high property taxes, pollution, poorly educated children, out-migration and rural
depopulation, foreign land and farm ownership, lobbyist-funded legislators, chronic mistreatment of the disabled, a maniacal hatred of government and
children who dream of living anywhere else.

This makes me want to weep. In fact, I just might.
