SHOCK!!! TKC TOLD YOU SO: KANSAS CITY COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA TOY TRAIN STREETCAR FLASH MOB EXPRESS COMING SOON TO TROLLEY TRACK TRAIL?!?!



Tonight let's lament yet another sign of screwed up Kansas City priorities while basic services FAIL and crumble under less than 10 inches of snow . . .

KC Biz Journal: James wants advisory group to study streetcar along old trolley route

"In the announcement, the city cited expected questions about continued use of the popular exercise path along the former trolley line, streetcar noise, and questions about increases in sales and property taxes that would help pay for the line."

TRANSLATION: GOODBYE TROLLEY TRACK TRAIL!!!

And here's where it gets fun . . .

TKC TOLD YOU D-BAGS THAT THEY WOULD BE GETTING RID OF TROLLEY TRACK TRAIL ON BEHALF OF THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR LAST YEAR!!!

Here's a delicious and sexual link that proves our insight. . . TKC FACT CHECK: Like It Or Not, Toy Train Streetcar Will Take Out Trolley Track Trail!!!

Let's get even deeper than that . . . Take a look at this misleading comment hater who doubted our inside scoop that's now happening . . .

BS Tony and you should know it said...

"The City staff has received direction to develop street car plans that PRESERVE the Wiggins bike and walking trail. No plans will move to council that do not include preserving that trail.

This post that you made is willfully misleading Tony.

You did much better work when you were covering the train wreck that was our former mayor.

Your unreasonable and lie-filled hateration of public transit really destroys your credibility."

Really??!?!

And here we are . . .

JUST LIKE THE MOST KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS SAID . . . KANSAS CITY IS STUDYING THE TOY TRAIN ON TROLLEY TRACK TRAIL AKA "FLASH MOB EXPRESS" TO BRING THE STREETCAR DOWN TO THE PLAZA AND INTO OUR FAVORITE WHITE ENCLAVES!!!

So . . . Smart denizens of Kansas City know NEVER to believe propagandists, civic boosters and other cheerleaders and realize that their promises aren't worth much as the toy train prepares to destroy one of this town's nicest trails and the second best place (next to the P&L District) to get raped in this town. Natch.

This is Glover's greatest triumph. He's a genius.

Sweet, so we can get wasted on the plaza and ride to downtown and get MORE wasted at Power and Light!

Next up?
Millions of dollars of tax money to move the UMKC Arts operation to the Crossroads.
It never ends.

Once again. Might be a good idea to read the fucking link you posted you idiot. Doesn't say what you want it to say so you make the shit up and tout it as "I were right!!!" Dumbass.

I will run over all of you.

Next Rail is right up your ass!

There is no stopping me and Sly James.

You know what would be a lot cheaper and way more effective? Get a fleet of those asian carts that a guy pulls and runs around on. A Rickshaw? WAY less expensive, MORE fun, more "cultural" even.

Anonymous said...

Good idea, the rickshaw. Then again, consider the great potential for negro hijinks. Rickshaw violence could ruin our GOP convention hopes!

Greedo said...

You mean the good people of next rail KC lied to me?

Certainly NOT!

Anonymous said...

Yea, actually they didn't.

Like the dude said above, read the fucking link, which not only doesn't say the streetcar will "steal" the, ahem, TROLLEY TRACK trail (aka toy trail boondoggle that doesn't pay for itself)....it actually says the FUCKING OPPOSITE.

THE TRAIL WIL BE PRESERVED and the streetcar would run in the HUGE FUCKING SWATH of unused grass right next to it.

Dolts.

I have to agree with Tony's point. He says if city is talking about not taking the trail it could very well mean they are planning on doing just that.

So suck on that you DOLT and fool at 8:13

It appears from my Twitter timeline that the anti-#kcstreetcar meeting tonight, w/appearance by @MayorSlyJames, may not have gone frostily.

Want to stop the Toy Train ? One man can do it and only one man. Our next mayor.....Pootie Tang. Yes, Pootie Tang will kill the Toy Train. Vote Pootie for Mayor in 15.

Paid for by the Pootie for Mayor Committee, Carl from Mission Hills, Treasurer

Here are some actual facts:

- There's plenty of room for both a streetcar line and a trail co-exist peacefully.

- KCATA owns the land anyway. They're always going to act in the best interests of the city's transit needs. This is a good example. The Plaza? UMKC? Brookside? Waldo? It's a no-brainer.

The city will move forward without you. You've not told us anything except your opinion, which is usually the same anti-city, anti-progress BS we're all used to.

There is always more and it is always worse.

But we already knew that.

I'm going with Pootie. It's going to take a pimp to stop the Toy Train.

No need for toy trolley to go anywhere south of 47th. And no way trolley trail will be sacrificed for toy train just so big wigs get kickback, and amped up civic heads get to feel right.
Besides, economy will crash before toy train gets out of downtown.

You simply cannot believe anything the filthy politicians of Kansas City say. They are money-grabbing crooks who are out to make money off endless projects funded by our tax money. Xxx

Aren't there any adults left at city hall?
Watching this streetcar fiasco unfold is like watching a rerun of "Children of the Corn"!
And in a couple years, the fun and excitement of the streetcar and make-believe urban living in downtown will be gone, the apartment leases will be up, and the millenial entrpreneurs will have found some neat new fad to try to get the public to pay for.
Downtown is little more than a publicly-funded amusement park.
And the bonds will run at $10-15 million/year for decades.
All aboard.

Once the toy train flops, and it WILL flop, just remember how long the city had to nix the deal before going deeper and deeper into the abyss.

I stand with Pootie Tang.

Yep, I think we need the pimp to stop the train and kill that fucking polar bear. I stand with Pootie Tang too.
