THE TKC WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS!!!



Erin Stern is our model of strength for Kansas City tonight as we acknowledge local power players.

Check it:

POLITICOS



1. Kansas City Mayor Sly James - Our town's top elected official can move the crowd with his smile on the subject of gun control or toy trains. The consensus is that he won't have a challenger given that he's the most charismatic leader Kansas City has seen in a generation.

2. MO House Rep. John Rizzo - Leading the Missouri House Democrats during a tense session. We'll have more on his work in just a few moments but this is a bit of real recognition for one of Kansas City's best and brightest representatives.

3. Mayor Pro Tem Cindy Circo - Like it or not, this lady has some of Kansas City's most influential people concerned about her next move.

4. MO State Senator Jason Holsman - "Big Red" is certainly South Kansas City's best and brightest as he begins a promising political career advocating for an often neglected part of town.

5. Jackson County Legislator Theresa Garza Ruiz - Maybe a future Kansas City Council Lady, queen of the corridor and certainly a power player in local politics.

NEWSIES



Tess K. - A thoughtful journalist and masterful storyteller when it comes to Kansas City real life.

Eric Chaloux - KCTV5's fearless investigator and sweeps champion with a Jackson County breathalyzer

Eric Wesson - Kansas City's strongest advocate for the urban core who held City Hall accountable for toy train disparity this week.

Steve Vockrodt - Kansas City Biz News Powerhouse and one of the smartest guys in the room for reals.

Dave Helling - Credit where it's due . . . I hope they can Kraske before a far more informed Kansas City multimedia journalist.

KANSAS CITY LOYAL OPPOSITION



SUE BURKE AND STRETCH - Downtown Biz Owners Standing On Principle, Dedicated To Upholding The Constitution And Fighting Taxation Without Representation Right Here In Kansas City, Missouri.

ALONZO WASHINGTON - A prolific and successful activist working against the status quo and toward more community cooperation with police.

TONI BONES - A young but energetic lady making a name for herself among local liberty enthusiasts.

KANSAS CITY PEACE PLANTERS - Anti-Nuke advocates with a powerful understanding of City Hall and paperwork. They're taking on the Nuke/Military Industrial Complex from right here in Kansas City.

CLAY CHASTAIN - Like it or not, he's our strongest transit activist and the only guy to ever win a citywide fixed rail transit election in Kansas City. He's currently taking City Hall to the Missouri Supreme Court and talking about a comprehensive recall against Mayor & Council.

As always, this list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people.

I don't think Tony goes that far probably just sniffs his farts or something when in the vicinity.

In other news the new flame has cost the memorial about $100,000 a year but high technology could reduce that cost to about $70,000 a year.

Yeah until KCPL and MGE get their next rate increase to offset any damage to their profits caused by us pesky customers making efforts to conserve.

I'd fuck Tess K in her ass. Then cum all over her face. I'd even get some in her hair. Maybe even in her eyes just to see how she would react.

Sly use to be an ok guy years ago but he got to eating too many of the big white mints in mens restrooms over the years and it messed his mind up.

That's dumb.

I think this list should be formally entitled The Moreno List.

After all, next to Chris Moreno, all of these people in all of these categories can only be compared to his power.

Anonymous said...

I bet Chris Moreno has a big dick.

Lou said...

Ask Byron.

I really doubt whether Chris could tell you because there is no way that he has been able to see it in 20 years.

As Lou said ask Byron he will know for sure.

The Vote Nazi said...

Give me a fucking break you ass-hats are debating the size of Chris Moreno's man-sausage(ette) when one post up we are speculatin on DeAnn Smith's lady parts! What the fuck is wrong with you people! No right to vote for you!

Eric Wesson? Lawd have mercy! He is a poor excuse for a journalist or an advocate. Any body who thinks "irregardless" is a word and uses it in print and on the air should be silenced.

Sue Burke seems a bit cray cray and she lives in Johnson County. Of course she doesn't get to vote on a KCMO TID, any more than she gets to vote on the earnings tax or sales tax or other property taxes. Get a life, Sue.

Sue does not live in Johnson County. She lives in KCMO. Do your homework before you embarras yourself and expose your ignorance when making comments.

@12:21 WRONG AGAIN! "irregardless" (adverb) showing lack of regard;without concern lack of respective Origin 1910-1915 non traditional
Actually had that debate on a term paper at Kansas University

Anonymous said...

8:06, the fact that your term paper was at KU negates your argument. It's "regardless" not "irregardless".

Anonymous said...

12:21 is half right about Burke. She does seem a bit cray cray.

She and Stretch are both nuts if they think their lawsuit has a snowball's chance in Hell.

To 8:06:
Although it's true that the American Heritage Dictionary, the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, and the Oxford English Dictionary all list the word irregardless, they also note that it's considered nonstandard. Listing a word as nonstandard is a way that dictionaries concede that a word is in common use, but isn't really a proper word. Standard language is defined as the language spoken by educated native speakers (1), but comprehensive dictionaries also include nonstandard words, dialect, colloquialisms, and jargon--words like ain't, conversate, and irregardless. It seems pretty common for people to look up a word in a dictionary, and if it's there, they think it's fine to use that word every circumstance. It's the "Look, it's a word!" phenomenon.

The prefix ir- (i-r) is a negative prefix, so if you add the prefix ir to a word that's already negative like regardless, you're making a double-negative word that literally means “without without regard.”
