THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! CONFLICTED KANSAS CITY!!!
This week, more than anything it seems that in 2013 Kansas City has been mired with one conflict of interest after the next.
To wit . . .
LET'S LOOK AT THE CONFLICTS THAT DEFINE KANSAS CITY THIS WEEK AND OFFER A GLIMPSE AT THE FUTURE!!!
Kansas City Remains Conflicted About The Toy Train Streetcar
More than any other topic, the absolute corruption of Democracy in service of the OVER-BUDGET toy train streetcar proves that Kansas City is on the wrong track. Library honcho Crosby Kemper III calls it "the single-most undemocratic election in Kansas City since the Pendergast era" and it just gets worse from there . . .
The newspaper would rather play nice than ask tough questions.
The most egregious example of the conflict of interest in building the Downtown Toy Train are questions surrounding Staubio taking a rather sweet marketing gig after campaigning and holding a place on the public board with ultimate responsibility on the streetcar.
Out in the Northland the stakes are even more lofty . . .
High-Flying KCI Single-Airport Scheme Has Operatives Playing Both Sides
With a great amount of detail the Show-Me Institute guys called out a Platte County lady for double-edged fun on the eco-devo aspect of the new airport proposal.
And finally . . . Even our justice system faces allegations of conflict . . .
Jackson County Prosecutor Mean Jean Peters Baker Must Decide If She's A Politico Or A Public Servant
This week . . . Totally unreported by mainstream media but put on blast by the very finest Kansas City Insiders . . . MEAN JEAN FACES SANCTIONS FOR STATEMENTS THAT MIGHT NOT MATCH UP!!!
Crime in Kansas City has grown worse while this local power player is working on a years-old women's rights case in rural Missouri and then partaking in all things related to Democratic campaigning rather than focusing all of her attention on Kansas City's deadly 2013 4th quarter crime spree.
And these are just the top examples of people holding the public trust who are confronted with important ofquestions about alleged two-faced tactics . . . Sadly, there are so many more instances of this kind of Kansas City double dealing despite political leadership that smiles in public but plays "win at all costs" hardball behind the scenes.
And all of these conflicts have inspired tonight's playlist:
As always, thank you for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.
