Kansas City Money Pit Zoo Spending Spree!!!
In yet another scam perpetrated on Kansas City taxpayers at the behest of Golden Ghetto suburbanites . . . Take a look at The Zoo's latest shopping spree:
Star: "Money began flowing to the Kansas City Zoo from its new tax district on Thursday, with the first $3.86 million to be spent on new hires, a penguin exhibit, zoomobiles and other priorities."
TKC FACT . . . Nothing about the Kansas City's money pit zoo is a "priority."
In so many words, a Kansas City tourist attraction (mostly for the residents of JoCo) will be even nicer while City Services in KC Proper still suck and the urban core continues to face decline.
More interestingly . . .
The editorialists at The Kansas City Star mark the Zoo tax as the moment when GOP Machiavelli Jeff Roe became a part of this town's "mainstream" political establishment by bringing home a victory in yet another local election where nobody voted . . . In the grand sense of things, they're probably right given that political divisions and culture wars are simply a red herring and the only real struggle that exists is between the haves and the have-nots . . . In this wicked little town, that argument is manifested by insiders, politicos and the local elite using Kansas City taxpayers as nothing more than a stepping stone in their career journey.
