There is no rational discussion that is going to open your mind to any other way of thinking... You say you are ok with this expansion and then proceed to spew hate and talking points. You are apparently blind to the positive benefits this growth and development can have on the future of this community without taking it political and bashing one end of the spectrum. Discussing its merits and the opportunities it has to not only appeal to those in our community now, but also those that live in other communities currently, is up to this point impossible. Any association with ideas different, foreign, new, or alternative is rejected from entering into the equation when you decide to rear your ugly head. Jeff City is facing a growth issue, i.e. stagnant to minimal positive economic expansion for the last 15-20 years and all you are focused on is blaming bogey-men.
In other words... You're operating on a one track mind, stating ad nausea the notion that "progressivism" is destroying America and is the culprit for not only the world's problems but our local ones as well. Hopefully, you (and others) will one day be able to acknowledge positive growth in our community coming from a local organization and leave your preconceived judgements and prejudices at the door.
Inciting fear, blaming "progressives", and spewing hate, Connor...? Stay classy.
This article is about a major employer in JC expanding and adding jobs and you want to link this to "progressives" as the cause of all the worlds problems. Wow. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but yours seems to be thinly veiled racism and hate for differing opinions.
I would say additional doctors and staff are "merit and ability" based additions to the community.
And the fact that your hang up is over the word progress or progressive indicates a very narrow minded outlook that is all too prevalent.
If JC is going to grow it needs to appeal to a wider spectrum of people... Maybe even people that weren't born here. The current demographics don't paint a very bright future if this community doesn't wake up to this fact.
This is great news for the community! CRMC, a locally owned and operated hospital, is planning to grow and develop, to give the citizens of Jefferson City the best medical care possible through the best delivery possible.
Getting people the care they need in the easiest and quickest (and cheapest) manner is through outpatient same-day service. With this they can recruit doctors to want to move and work in this community. High-paying, revenue-generating jobs... those that are badly needed in Jeff City.
Those opposed to this growth in our community seem to either have sour grapes, or want this community to never change. They want JC and CRMC to be the same as a porcelain doll, never growing or developing as the years pass by, never wanting new blood to enter the gene pool. If they didn't go to JC or Helias they best stay out.
