Wolf Of Wall Street Reminds Us That Kansas City 1% Don't Really Care About This Cowtown



Last night I was lucky enough that a lady friend paid my way to go see the Wolf Of Wall Street.

Like any and all Martin Scorsese flicks . . . It was an INCREDIBLE CINEMATIC MASTERPIECE with an important message . . .

Mainly . . .

THE 1% COULDN'T CARE LESS ABOUT ANYBODY THEY HAVE TO RIP-OFF IN ORDER TO STAY RICH!!!

Of course there are exceptions but I find that's mostly due to the elite showing just a bit of weakness while realizing the long term implications of so much economic disparity for brief shinning moments.

Reality: The gulf betwixt rich and poor is getting wider and anything resembling American civic responsibility is disappearing along with the middle-class.

Even better . . .

THE WOLF OF WALL STREET CINEMATIC SCREED REMINDS ME THAT THIS YEAR KANSAS CITY'S 1% REALLY PROVED THEMSELVES TO BE EXCEPTIONALLY HEARTLESS AND CRUEL!!!

I have examples . . .

- The Jackson County Translational Tax was nothing more than a ponzi scheme concocted by the civic elite in order to finance their pipe dreams, legal work and biz dealings on the backs of po'folk. The fact that so many jumped on board this scam reveals the true nature of this town's monied interests.

- The Streetcar Is Nothing Less Than A Toy Train Robbery . . . Disguised as transit, this effort is more about paying corporate, marketing and power brokers by railroading Kansas City Democracy.

- Remember the Kansas City Healthcare Tax? 10 more years of local levies that might help a few hobos who didn't yet sign up for Obamacare but also serves to finance the BIG TIME corporate salaries of local hospital execs making high six figures.

For these reasons and so many more . . . The Wolf Of Wall Street is a MUST SEE . . .



My only regret is that Leo DiCaprio's character was exciting and inspiring while Kansas City's elite get their way and manufacture consent by lulling everybody to sleep and pretending to care about this town while looting just about every single civic institution.

Ah, let us drink lustily from the glass of bitter Slanderella tears in front of us.

Because that's all this is.

Tonys KC-family issues
(cc) Tony and his mom go to the movies; Glazer dashes into Missy B's to duck his baseball bat wielding bookie and stands in for the Lollipop Dress wearing tranny on stage.

Must see? You'd be much better off watching my classic "Fitzcarraldo" - one of many tour-de-force films I made with Klaus Kinski.

Actually the KCMO one percenters love the city. Where else can you walk into a building, schmooze just thirteen people, and walk back out with tens of millions of dollars?
Boxers, streetcars, hotels, soccer fields, and who knows what else.
Sure beats trying to sell your ideas to the public.

At least in KCK, our ruling thugs live in Mission Hills and openly acknowledge they own city hall, the courthouse, power company and banks.

You either accept this arrangement, or go to jail. Interesting fact, talking about them is alright, but writing about them ruffles their feathers.

Anyone who thinks a city mayor makes decisions concerning money and developments, spends entirely too much time watching movies and TV.

Hang on to your wallets, the ruling elite are going in for the kill starting January 1st.
