TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! DEMOCRATIC PARTY ELITE FEAR COALITION AGAINST KANSAS CITY EARNINGS TAX INCLUDING EAST SIDE VOTERS!!!
The Kansas City ruling class is quickly discovering that hatred of taxes unites voters across political, cultural and demographic lines.
This should be fun . . . Mayor Sly must lobby African-American voters in Kansas City in order to save the earnings tax despite a tense relationship over the years and the fact that his Administration has been mostly focused on corporate welfare for rich white people and their lawyers.
Think about this . . .
- The East side was a big part of the translational tax defeat which earned rebuke citywide . . .
- East side voters helped to defeat the streetcar extension . . .
- And the recent voter petition to thwart BNIM was a product of east side leaders . . .
Here's what looks interesting to us . . .
Mostly white libertarian conservative tax fighters crafted an impressive working relationship with east side activists who have long been ignored and taken for granted by the Democratic Party establishment. This alliance seems like one of the most effective bits of advocacy for the urban core in more than a generation.
Seriously, it's strange to hear Crosby Kemper III talking like a store front preacher on Troost and standing arm in arm with community activist leaders in order to create a coalition.
Meanwhile . . .
TKC EXCLUSIVE . . . E-TAX FIGHTERS GAINING TRACTION IN THE URBAN CORE SPELLS TROUBLE BECAUSE SENTIMENT AGAINST THE E-TAX IN THE MOSTLY WHITE NORTHLAND IS ALREADY HORRIBLE!!!
Like it or not, Conservatives and urban core leaders working together have proven to be the only effective means of thwarting the status quo corporate cronyism that has corrupted elite Democratic Party politics.
TKC was FIRST to identify this trend and we kind hinted that the "Divided City" public TV broadcast was really just an hour long commercial against the E-Tax. Turns out, some of the folks working for Crosby helped to craft the documentary in order to create an effective talking point. Now politicos are abuzz over anti-E-Tax radio commercials targeting Question 1 among predominately African-American-centric radio stations. However, this trend is now close to four years old and entrenched newsies and Democratic elite are just starting to notice as it threatens one of this town's biggest tax cash feeding troughs.
Accordingly, all of this inspires our playlist tonight . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday Night . . .
