True, the northland alone could give JoCO a run for their money. Only Luzianne keeps believing a lie like that, well that is based on her "experience"

Again, where do you get this information? Because it's not true. And first you said 1.5 times. Now you say two times more. Still not true.

I declined that for the same reason - I do not intend to reveal my identity. And if I didn't do it for an all expenses paid trip to LA, I certainly am not going to do it for some random person posting on this forum.


And two, because of statements like below that show me you already have preconceived ideas and your reasons for asking don't include truly wanting opinions from Johnson Countians if they differ from the responses you are hoping to get. I have quoted those statements below and added a brief comment to a couple of them. My comments are in blue.

As for businesses "fleeing" to Kansas, one of the things that prompted me to start this thread to begin with was an interest in seeing how residents of the most affluent and second-most-populous county in the Kansas City area, the one with the "good schools" my Mom said Kansas was known for (along with "bad roads, and Missouri vice versa"), felt about the long-term effects of the bribes the state offered to get them to flee.


Actually, Kansas has GREAT roads and Missouri's are awful. When I lived in Kansas/worked in Missouri, I could have been blindfolded and known when I crossed the state line, from properly maintained roads to roads with potholes, not cleaned of snow and ice promptly in the winter, etc. Your words in quotes say it all about the opinions you have already formed. So you are already biased and you are not truly looking for opinions. You are just hoping to find Johnson Countians to echo your own opinions.


FWIW, when I last visited in 2014, one of my cousins, as we were discussing the state of things around the area, used a third word in between "Johnson" and "County" to describe it. It begins with F. He was referring to what he perceived as the attitudes of the residents. As about 50 percent of my high school classmates lived in ZIP codes beginning with 662, I don't quite go that far, but I must admit to chuckling at that description, as it did capture some of that "we're in this region but not of it" attitude some complain about. Is this perception an exaggeration? Well, what do you Kansans say?

How nice. I'm sure KCMO supporters wouldn't be too eager to share their opinions with someone obviously biased against Kansas City and who thought calling Kansas City "Kansas F*cking City" was funny, either.

My original question was sort of tongue-in-cheek, which is hard to portray through typing alone. The original purpose of this thread was to gather JoCo residents' thoughts on the border war. Instead, it predictably unraveled into a flame war.

At first, this forum's pent-up frustration about the KS side (or the MO side, depending on the author) surprised me. Now, I almost expect it! What would it take for luzianne and kcmo to get along, for example?

He'd have to get that chip off his shoulder.

Yeah, sorry, it is 1.5 times. Typing got ahead of my brain. And even if you repeat "it's not true" thousands of times, to something that is true, it doesn't actually change it. I already told you were I got the information: the United States Government. It's actually quite easy to find. But you aren't really interested in that. Because you know all the doctors.

Link please. I don't think there is anything that tells you the home addresses of doctors practicing in Kansas City, Missouri.

So your contention here, for the record, is that the federal government does not keep statistics on employment by profession and by metropolitan area and that they don't know where those people live? But you do?

Follow up question: are you familiar with federal income taxes?

Of course THEY know. I said they aren't publishing it so YOU know.


I will continue to say more KC doctors live in Johnson County than elsewhere in the metro. YOU keep saying that's not true, and as you say you can keep repeating that, but it doesn't make it true. I do happen to know where a whole lot of doctors live, and if I wanted/needed to I could look up any others. Johnson County is where professionals tend to want to live. There are SOME on the Missouri side, but more in Johnson County.

I would suggest you do a search based upon both posters started threads in both forums the last few years.

I think that will give you some insight as to where the problem lies.

Please, totally not joking, report back and let us know what you find.

P.S. Please note, starting on page 1 whom actually contributed to the OP's request and whom started firing volleys.
