Does Kansas suck that much?
Well, the Native Americans just took some horses, guns, and scalps and moved west. The displaced tribes, you know those who didn't die from small pox infestted blankets, of the east came together to create an entirely new nomadic plains culture (see John Wayne movies).
Well, the whiteman couldn't contain themselves and they followed, possibly in search of dream catchers to hang from the rear view mirror or their covered wagons. They took land, then gave it back, as a favor? And grew shit loads of corn, too much corn. Way too much corn.
Now, like then, they are trying to give the land away! Free fucking land, when a townhouse in Asbury Park is going for over $1million. WTF? Does Kansas suck that much? I would think that it does. Miles of empty nothingness and then, WHAM! A house lifting thunderstorm.
Anyway, the fine politicans of Kansas are hoping that by giving land away to people who want to build homes and start businesses in a place free from corruption and most likely evolution.
Here's the best part: Kansas is a hardcore red state, you rule of the free market blah blah blah. Well the Pols know their state sucks ass so they are funding massive public imporvements unimaginable: cable tv, internet, parks, health clubs...ON TAX DOLLARS. WTF again.
