TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR SUPPORTERS CLAIM THEY CAN ALTER SPACE AND REALITY!!!



Just a quick note on the Kansas City space/time continuum this evening as opposition to the Toy Train streetcar begins to gain traction in Kansas City . . .

Take a quick look at this conceptual drawing . . .



Now, we've made it easy but a Kansas City Insider explains:

"Take a look at the last two drawings. The spacing is different, not proportionate and simply doesn't make sense. Just how do the Mayor and/or the streetcar supporters plan on creating more land without either taking out the Trolley Track Trail or coming really close to those parking spaces. The answer is, nothing about this plan is detailed and they don't want to hold themselves accountable to voters. The Committee wants simply wants a blank check and then to take this out of the hands of the public and let it be decided by Mayoral appointees."

We have to admit, the plan for creating more space out of thin air reveals that streetcar advocates just might be geniuses.



Then again . . . That reminds us that this whole process was started by a MENSA GENIUS COUNCIL DUDE RUSS JOHNSON!!! Unfortunately, nobody is allowed to ask any questions.

Speaking of . . . Let's not even get started on the tax structure of the whole thing . . .

SHOW-ME BLOG: Kansas City Streetcar: Tax Now, Answer Questions Later

So . . . Tonight Kansas City must simply debate betwixt faith and reason once again . . .



Does this Kansas City trust City Hall to alter the very fabric of The Universe or is it possible that their plan for the toy train simply isn't very well thought out.

Developing . . .

Jesus. You anti-everything city-haters are really grasping at straws now. Guess it's hard to be wrong.

All of this is meaningless compared to where the money can possibly come from to pay for all this and how much it will actually cost.
They'll have to rob every line item in the budget for years.
Sly and the gang have been launched on a fool's errand by a little band of urban futurists, hipsters, millenials, and cheer leaders.
And the adults in the city will be paying for decades.
As though KC needed yet another harebrained and unsuccessful project to make it the country's laughingstock.
All aboard.

Ok, that TKC rules thing is funny.

If the Brookside folks would stand with the Eastside folks and the Clay Chastain folks, we could collectively run Sly James and the rest of the Council out of this town. Let's work together people. It's not hard.

You guys haven't even proved you can build a "vibrant" downtown that can sustain itself yet 8:59. Maybe you should be concerned about that instead of trying to cram your agenda down the throats of people who aren't interested in "urban density".

Yes, every time you get a $1.00 soda at McDonald's on Troost and Meyer and pay $1.12, remember that those extra pennies in sales tax are because voters were asleep at the wheel when voting on this God Damned P&L District. Buy a $1.00 soda in any other part of the metro, and it is $1.07 on average.

NO NEW TAXES FOR THIS HIPSTER BULLSHIT TRAIN!! Streetcars in KCMO were dismantled for a reason and this new generation cannot learn from KC history, or even from other metro areas.

We in Brookside DO NOT WANT THIS TRAIN. This idiot mayor and council will soon realize this in the coming weeks if they don't know it already.

CM said...

My problem with this crap is the cost. Just as your city council member for a cost and they won't tell you how much it's running. That info is out of the discussion.

Since you alter reality and twist the truth every single day that's pretty damn funny coming from you.

Hi Patsy how much did you pay for this post?

Stein said...

Pay TKC?

Alternate universe!

Insiders say Tony and Patsy have a paid relationship so he'll promote those dumb Show Me posts.

Like this one.

9:46; you sure do bitch about the McD's at Meyer & Troost a lot. Maybe get out of your car and get a coke somewhere else. And guess what? You don't speak for Brookside. I live here too and I, and plenty of my neighbors, think the streetcar will be great.

10:49. You pay for it asshole. Brookside will be Ruskin in 5 years

Tom said...

@10:35, That would mean that Crosby Kemper III is paying Tony.

Obviously you've never heard how much that guy hates this blog. The tits especially.

But feel free to imagine that Kemper and Patsy are paying Tony, I think it would be the only time they paid a Mexican more than minimum wage.

Bwaahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Will the train bring me from the airport to Price Chopper in Brookside so I can get some more signatures?

- Me That's who.

The space/time continuum has been breached as Mayor Sly & Council inserted their heads into a black hole.

When contacted via time travel in an alternate universe, Carl Sagan reported the streetcar build-out would cost BILLIONS and BILLIONS!

As we were teleporting back to this present dimension, I stole a glance into our near future and saw that Mayor Sly served but a single term. Seems the anti-tax crowd and his own health problems sunk his chance for a second term.

To the right, above Tony's image, is he:
BANGING A GONG ?
or
GANGING A BONG ?

witnesses report a Tony lookalike traveling often between Colorado and KC.

This whole plan is ridiculous. And now they want to add bike lanes to boot. There's another pro-streetcar rally for the hipsters at the Beir Garden in Waldo coming up. Where are they going to fit those bike lanes in on Wornall and Brookside Boulevard along with the extra turning lane, we ask, and the answer would be take even more magical land from the parks and trolley trail, homes and businesses. Really glad my house is not lining that route. Eminent domain is a bitch.

This is going to require a cult of personality which they short of these days.

White people are dumb. This is your graft and wasteful government spending. Take it gladly or it will be spent elsewhere.

Rich and poor alike will have to pay for this in rent and taxes, and if our leaders cared at all about hungry children they wouldn't have started this mess and invested in a better bus system instead.

The poor Gunnars. When faced with facts, they simply resort to fantasy. And when that fails, they resort to name-calling. These aren't hipsters. They're the children of helicopter parents who are used to having their way.

Just ask your self a question: WHO IS MAKING MONEY ON THIS BOONDOGGLE?

I remember the old freight train that ran on those old tracks. I used to put pennies on the track. It blocked traffic all the time. Kids would crash their sleds down Suicide Hill into the tracks. No more walking. No more bicycling.

Thanks, Gunnar. Always nice to hear your reasoned and thoughtful responses.

But it was better and just a tad more mature than the "Suzy Q and sue" responses.

6:40, Cerner, Stowers/Oxford on the Blue, the 29 property owners of Three Trails Village CID. Who is Lou Austin? Who is Wallace Kerr? The hipsters are just corporate useful idiots. What else is new?

I too spent my youth in proximity to those tracks. Too bad someone had to die before the route was retired.
