Oh yeah really inspiring. About as inspiring as a hobo muttering to himself.

Inspiring to Kansas since it's obvious this guy doesn't have a clue as to what he's doing.

Sly and crew are going to fuck this city up so bad I doubt we'll even be able to recover.

Sly is an IDIOT.

He has consistently proved one thing over the whole, long, nauseating course of his tenure. That he will say anything, no matter how hollow, fatuous, craven, or at odds with reality the utterance is.

If you eat out, drink, or go to a movie in KC, you pay almost 10% in sales tax. About 3.5% are entertainment taxes that are divied up between the city, county, and the state. If you eat or drink in City Mkt, P&L, and now the train district, which is most of downtown, you pay another penny on the dollar. This is one of the 10 highest sales tax rates in the country; higher than NY, Boston, Philly, LA, or SF (they have lowered their rates to make themselves more competitive). If you stay in a hotel downtown, you pay almost 18% in sales and entertainment tax, almost 20 cents on every dollar. This is the third highest hotel rate in the country. KS is only doing what they need to do to be competitive. It's no secret KC loses a chunk of smaller convention business to Independence and OP because they offer more competitive rates. Throw in the crappy schools of KC, a staggering murder rate, and crumbling infrastructure, it's not any wonder people are leaving KC. The solution is obvious for KC; lower your tax rates and make yourself more competitive. But City Hall refuses to do this, and instead spouts bullshit out of the side of their mouths. The Star seems to have made themselves the official PR organ of City Hall. Undoubtedly a goon from City Hall will come on here and say it's all not true. His argument will go something like this: all of us are too stupid to wipe our asses twice in a row without hurting ourselves. It is his job to protect us from our dumb asses, if he deigns to do so.
KC has always been know as Little Chicago. For Capone and Daly, we have Pendergrast and H Roe Bartle. The only breath of fresh air KC has ever had from a corrupt and full-of-shit City Hall, the only time we haven't had a mayor who was a member of the Secret Handshake Society, was the Funkmeister. Unfortunately, his wife didn't have a lick of sense and wouldn't stay at home.
