SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY SINGLE-TERMINAL SCHEME IS TOTALLY GOING TO BANKRUPT THIS BROKE-ASS TOWN!!!
Tonight, let's liven up a really boring post regarding the KCI Airport Single-Terminal Scheme and make it plain . . .
For starters, and I didn't know this . . .
"Kansas City is borrowing money from the airport, with interest, to cover losses it incurred in tax abatements to things such as the Power & Light District."
This means that the fancy new airport that Mayor Sly, Russ Johnson and the aviation dude want is going to risk one of the last remaining Kansas City cash cows.
Conclusion . . .
"Not only is building a new terminal a bad idea on its merits, but it puts at risk a source of money the city is using to cover losses on all its other bad ideas."
Accordingly . . .
WHEN THEY FINALLY RAM THROUGH THE SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT . . . IT'S GOING TO DRY UP EVEN MORE KANSAS CITY RESOURCES!!!
- The Toy Train will have to pay for itself by moving riders from one coffee shop to the next.
- Union Station Office Space will have to generate revenue from other sources besides political donations.
- P&L District drink prices might go as high as $12 a beer because it's totally worth it to hang out with 31 year-old Northland chicks.
For these reasons and so many more, this new airport scheme is a bad idea BUT don't count on Mayor or Council to answer any questions on it UNLESS it is in the form of sexting.
