Nice Kauffman has such high standards. Do they ask you to play angry birds during interviews for their top positions?

Cities can promote entrepreneurs by giving talented artists a public platform to promote their products to new audiences.

So Sly is soon to be a freelance writer working for 25 cent a word?

So this is what he was doing I suppose while everyone was trying to run him down to make a statement on all these recent high profile homicides.

Trying to meet a writing deadline for Forbes. Goes to show you what his real priorities are.

No, small business really wants to be in KC after 2 or 3 years of paying all the fees and taxes that city hall imposes. Wait until Sly proposes his massive property tax increase. This will be called the Kansas small business development tax when they pickup and move to Kansas.

He could have at least mentioned CK's greatest start up success story.

Grill's Sock business.

I can not wait to film a porno on that toy train.

They closed the Cowtown Mailroom. The only thriving spot for small business in the city.

Probably most entrepreneurs don't have much interest in operating our of a small midwestern town version of an urban environment with poor basic services, ever-increasing sales and property taxes for pointless glamour projects, and 25% the number of murders of New York City.
But Sly didn't run for mayor; he's there to be popular with the Chamber swells, millenials, and hipsters, with the taxpayers picking up the tab.
A city that works.
Just not for you.

In the Forbes article, did His Honor "the Sly" review CK's success with the Power & Light District?

Yes, your city too can lose millions every year subsidizing an "entertainment district."

Kill off all the natives and take their land. Import slave labor to do your farming, landscaping and domestic work.

God bless the Kaufmann Foundation. Our daughter and son in law have started a small tech company in KC proper (just west of Troost), and they have been very supportive and informative.
We are blessed to have them in KC.

No small business wants to locate to KC (CK) and have it's employees robbed, stabbed, raped or killed by all the fucking niggers.

Anonymous said...

None of the politicians or civic leaders believe in true entrepreneurship. What they support is crony capitalism where your business is either subsidized or where competitors are kept out.

What passes for entrepreneurship in KCMO is just more PR types living off governments or nonprofits.

Uh huh! I'd run to KC to open a business so they can pick my pocket and my stockholders could kick my ass to the street.
