TKC EXCLUSIVE QUESTION: IS KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY JAMES SLIPPIN?!?!



After talking with more than a few KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDERS we must ask the question that's too scary for most local media to contemplate.

Check it:

NOW IN THE WINTER OF OUR KANSAS CITY DISCONTENT IT SEEMS THAT THE POPULARITY OF MAYOR SLY JAMES IS FINALLY STARTING TO SLIP!!!

Supporting evidence . . .

- Last night, Brookside residents brought the Mayor's Toy Train Streetcar party to a FULL STOP. As neighborhood concerns about taxes, infrastructure and planning met Sly James instead of the usual condescending surprise that one of the most successful trial lawyers in Kansas City history is also very well spoken most of the time.

- The Mayor is losing the fight @ The Airport as grassroots FRIENDS OF KCI, the Save KCI Blog and The Show-Me Institute have awakened locals to the impending disaster that could result if the Single-Terminal scheme ever takes off.

- Ongoing crime and failing infrastructure apparent during the recent snow storm have shown that the Mayor hasn't made a lot of progress for the city outside a small circle of Crossroads Marketing hipsters, developers and the (sewing) circle of civic elite.

And so we need to ask:

HOW MUCH DO YOU STILL LOVE MAYOR SLY JAMES AMID KANSAS CITY'S DESPERATE WINTER CIRCUMSTANCES?!?!

Again, the Mayor's PR people are good at getting this question squashed among most local media but Internets free speech and the many AWESOME denizens of our gully forum make this inquiry possible. Natch.

He's got to have an opponent. That's the most important thing. A real opponent is when public discontent starts getting serious.

He'll be reelected by no less than a 40 percent margin.

Thanks for playing. You lose.

I'm really disappointed. He doesn't listen to constituents at all but just carries on with his own agenda as if the voice of the people don't matter.

Sly will have the money he's spent the last three years ensuring that

The Nov. tax vote shows people that the elite are out of touch and they continue forget the basics.

Sly rocks, he wins!

Know what I would think was a great legacy, if I were mayor? Improved infrastructure for the entire city, expanded and improved city services, and lowered crime (both violent and property crimes). Those are the things voters care the most about, too! But it's like Sly decided that kind of meat-and-potatoes, higher-quality-of-life stuff was boring or not sexy enough or something, so instead, we have to have all of this expensive crap that isn't actually going to make things better for residents. It just doesn't make any sense.

Leave the airport the fuck alone. Don't fuck up the city with streetcars. It's that simple

Most Sly supporters are in some kind of narcotic like trance induced by hype and bullshit.

Sly will find himself an opponent from Brookside. Guaranteed. We are all sick of his shit.

The train enthusiasts might find a more receptive audience if they will be honest about how much taxes will increase to pay for it. As it is now, it's like trying to find out how much a medical procedure will cost before your doctor performs it.

Don't hold your breath waiting for the friends of the toy train to be honest.

Let's see 21% voter turnout, Sly won with 38,500 votes. Guys huge I tell ya! Huge!

The Mayor is a bully. We saw that on display last night. Sly got away with the toy train downtown. This will NOT happen a second time.

Sly's a Music Man wannabee who's been selling dreams, hot air, and trombones right here in River City.
But residents' lives aren't any better if you judge by streets, crime, water service, ambulance response times, or much of anything else that actually affect everyday people every day.
So where's the beef?
The curtain is being pulled away and usually when bullies are confronted, they fade pretty quickly.
He'll probably win re-election and only then will the taxpayers of KCMO find out just how deep the financial hole that he and his merry band at city hall have dug.
All aboard.

Mayor Sly James is a Koch Brothers front.

He may carry the black vote but I think you are going to see a high turn out to do a vote out.

People are getting tired and pissed

Don't matter. Manny Van Brunt was mayor when over 800 people got killed. Look where he is now.

A TALE OF TWO CITIES
a readaptation of the Dickens classic, by Tony Botello

The plot centers on the time period leading up to the Taxpayers Revolt and culminates in the Sly James Reign of Terror.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of streetcars and airport terminals, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of rigged elections, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, they were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted in its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

....work in progress

You Honkies best get with the program. There is a candidate that can take Sly down. Only one man can save the day and you Crackers have not got on the Duce and a 1/4 that will run Sly out of the hood. The fat motherfucking Mexican won't throw his support nor will you white fuckers. Get off your asses and support the MAN ! POOTIE TANG, Pootie can take the Sly ape down. Fuck a bunch of Toy Train, fuck a bunch of Airport, fuck a whole bunch of Union Station cocksucking 1% cum stains. No, it's time for you fucks to support POOTIE TANG. Pootie will slap a hair lip on that ape looking nigger and make him like it. Either take a big shit or get on the POOTIE TANG EXPRESS, Crackers.

I'm for Pootie. This town needs a pimp to clean it up. If he runs City Hall like he runs his whores, this town will be humming, more ways than you know. Yep, I'm down with Pootie Tang. Tired of these wanna-be-negros with convict rapper sons.

Burns & Mac will reelect Sly as they collect their $1 Billion in fees, paid for by the water and sewer rates from Kansas Citians who will lose their homes because they can't pay their water bills !
