And yes I have a dumb username, whatever. I was like 20 when I signed up for this board. Get over it.
Oh to take back everything I did at 20. If a username is your worst, you did alright. :)

Re: Jackson County Charter Changes

What's your logic for voting against term limits? 1. We have elections. 2. I don't think term limits are particularly effective at rooting out the evil they claim. 3. We risk the possibility of limiting extremely talented legislators from becoming even better. I don't think they're inherently evil ...

Re: Politics

That right there is a ludicrous post. We're not "letting" people in, people are getting in despite our restrictive policies. So, you’re saying 12 Million people have entered our country despite it being SO restrictive. That seems like a terrible job done by our government. It’s been nice talking wi...

Let's start a petition to get the KCPS to put this building out for proposals to adaptively reuse for affordable housing!
That would actually be a great plan for that building. Has parking, would push development east, and could be affordable as a renovation as opposed to new build.

Re: Politics

Most of them are happening because of the current restrictive immigration policies and would be alleviated by allowing immigration to take place out in the open. What restrictive immigration policies?! We’re letting everyone in, either to receive asylum or to be processed (lost) in our immigration/...

Re: Politics

Thank you for proving my earlier point that we have to address the problem at the source. Which means working with what little government is left in some of these countries and offering incentives or assistance to organizations willing to 'right the ship'. Which makes the threat to pull aid by Trum...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Sorry I just dont see someone taking the streetcar from UMKC to the RM when uber or maybe even Bird would be faster. And as far as this serving the Plaza I challenge that even more. If someone were even on that side of the Plaza and if they wanted to transverse both Nichols then Main to get on a st...

Re: Politics

You rail on capitalism but then advocate for anyone to come here and work, letting the best worker take the job...the very basis of capitalism. And I’m fine with that if I didn’t see a very real negative social impact on other countries. There also is a large social welfare cost for those left out o...

Re: Politics

but why should we lock out people who are trying not to get killed? We absolutely should! Political dissidents who are being targeted by governments should be openly allowed into the country. That is a small minority of the cases we are seeing, about 10-15%. But, the overwhelming majority are looki...

Correct, but in China the risks are they steal your IP and make substandard products, etc... my point wasn’t that China and Latin American countries operated the same just that they had similar risk.
Right, I just wholeheartedly disagree.

Re: Politics

Exxon would have been aware of the risk beforehand and is likely insured to the hilt. Not to mention the corruption and societal abuse that probably went along with the exploration and implementation. CAPITALISM!

Re: Politics

Except when the US gives money to rebels to oppose duly elected governments, which creates a vacuum and leads to corruption and unrest. Pretending we are not part of the problem, either in the past or currently, will prevent the problem from ever being solved. Absolutely! But, say Exxon Mobil spend...

That’s for the Arterra garage.
Yep! Wrong thread. Does Crossroads even have a garage or just valet? And, any idea what the mural would be? Seemed a bit cliche/amateurish with block skyline buildings.

Pretty much. I believe we need to monitor it and perhaps limit it at some point. I believe it should be regulated to the extent we can keep out terrorists, weapons and narcotics. However, I have yet to see any evidence that we have reached some crisis stage of immigration. So, yeah - citizenship fo...

How are we not, indeed. Good point. We should be.
So, the path for anyone to get US citizenship is merely putting a foot in the soil?

And what do we leave for those who want a successful Honduras country?
