Kansas Speedway Economic Fact Check



As NASCAR lowlifes prepare to watch a series of left turns in Kansas for the prized and embarrassingly failed telcom Sprint Cup . . .

CHECK THIS QUICK REALITY CHECK TESTIMONY ON KANSAS SPEEDWAY ECO-DEVO PROGRESS!!!

A quick critique of the race to the bottom with taxpayer cash . . .

"When WYCO changed over to the UG, unemployment was 5.5%. At the height of the construction at the NASCAR track it was 11%. The WYCO UG is a subsidiary of the KCMO establishment and the jobs went to construction companies in KCMO very few jobs were made available to local KCK contractors."

Sadly, we haven't seen an economic renaissance here in KCK even if buying discount "Nebraska" furniture mostly made in China is now a far more pleasant experience.

At least us homeownwers are paying for it everytime we make our inflated house payments. All the while Marinovich and her banker buddies raped the WYCO residents for millions and millions on their land buying schemes. Just think we only have another 10 years of tax abatements left to endure, by that time it will be another Indian Springs out there.

Without the casino, NASCAR would be running on empty with the rods knocking.

There was a time when if a business wasn't viable on its own there was scrutiny about investing tax payers money. Now the politicians will sell and say anything to the public to haul the spoils of border wars to their side of the state line no matter how stupid the proposition becomes. Guess what? The same citizens that just got a dose of the Ali Shuffle with turn right around and reelect these jackasses and then scratch their asses trying to grasp why shit like this happens.

Bribes, bribes and more bribes to keep these Ponzi scheme alive. Stupid and lazy people continue to support the lies. Never ending left turns are the future of KCK. The right turns are enjoying the bribes too. Re-election accounts filled to keep their mouths shut.

Saved by the water park, saved by the race track, saved by the casino, saved by a bankrupt shopping center, saved by the media pounding these lies into weak minded people.

I didn't vote for this dead mall. I didn't like the domain stealing of people's homes and farms. I still don't like it. My family gets tired of me reminding them that they took people's farms and homes away to build a stupid nascar track, a crappy casino, and a low level baseball park. I hate soccer, so you won't hear me say anything nice about that. I don't do water parks, and hate cerner. All furniture purchased at nebraska f.m. has died in quick time, so I don't go there. They have a nice sonic next door to a hooters, and I think I've seen Tony in there grabbing on servers. *snark, just kidding*

TKC, what do you mean NASCAR lowlifes? Best fans in the world, and as a Sport, most charitable just behind the PGA.

let's see: no factual basis for any of those statements, no attribution, typical power-broker conspiracy theories.

Your source is Mr. "Handmaiden to Corruption" himself.

Mr. Handmaiden's to Corruption - Are you referring to every politician, banker, bond broker and business owner that have taken handouts, free land, booze, hookers, etc. The conspiracy is not a theory, it's the truth. So bite me. It's easy to be charitable when it's others people money.

The data should be easy enough to check.

Maybe the most stupid thing TKC has ever posted.

I see Glazers hatred of NASCAR has rubbed off on Tony.

2:11 The Legends has already gone bankrupt once, loses money, has lost many businesses, and is heavily taxpayer subsidized. These are all facts, not some conspiracy theory against "big business."

Three cheers for the dead tree and TV media coverage of the race this weekend. Fox 4 is nothing more than pimps for the United Government. Free parking, free trash pickup, free towing out of the mud, coolers full of food and beer taken into the stadium. KC taxpayers footing the bills for the good old girls and boys AGAIN!!! We're sick of this crap.
