TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COWTOWN TEACHING MOMENT: WILL KANSAS CITY SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT OPPONENTS LEARN THE LESSON OF STREETCAR OPPOSITION!?!?
The rather valiant Kansas City Toy Train streetcar opponents bring tidings of hope for the future of local struggle against development rammed through by overeager politicos.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS MONEY QUOTE FROM A STREETCAR OPPONENT WISHING GOOD LUCK TO ADVOCATES AGAINST THE NEW SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT!!!
Here's a word from X-mas future and a KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER & STREETCAR OPPONENT . . .
"I'm glad to see that the group trying to stop the same thing happening to us with the tearing down and rebuilding of KCI have learned from the streetcar opponents. You have to get the legal wheels rolling to stop these kind of projects before the mayor and city council hold a secret rigged election and impose the taxes and spending on citizens of KC without them having a say."
Right now the friends of KCI have turned in TWICE the number of petitions required to force a vote on the next City Hall move to push through the airport . . . And if we're learned anything from this episode in local history is that Kansas City's elected officials believe that FAKING CONSENSUS is a viable substitute for Democracy.
