MAYOR SLY SENDS SNARKY TWEET TO STRETCH OVER KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN!!!



Kansas City Mayor Sly James isn't above getting into a bit of social media beef in defense of Kansas City's Toy Train Streetcar.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY SOCIAL MEDIA JUNKIES ARE ABUZZ OVER MAYOR SLY'S SNARK SENT THE WAY OF KANSAS CITY ARTIST AND BIZ OWNER STRETCH!!!

Here's how it went down . . .

Admittedly, STRETCH started it . . .



To witch Kansas City Mayor Sly James replied . . .



Nice one . . . And a reference to a lawsuit that STRETCH & friends filed to hold up the Downtown Streetcar.

Still, STRETCH seemed to take it in stride . . .



And while this polite conversation and bit of snark doesn't really represent the increasingly caustic debate surrounding the expansion of the toy train streetcar ... It does let us know that the Mayor isn't afraid to answer a few of his strongest critics with a rather witty retort.

Has success gone to Stretchs' head and is he now a douche? Yes. But give him credit. He was willing to start a business in a part of town not many people were willing to invest in years ago. Now if he would go back to having Grinders be the alternative bar it used to be instead of charging P & L prices it would be much better. Sorry but charging $8 for 10oz of Boulevard Wheat in a plastic cup is bullshit.

Anyone running for mayor or council should be forced to put up an insurance bond for one billion dollars to be paid off if KCMO files bankruptcy within ten years of their term in office. I doubt any insurance company in the world would write a bond for Mayor James.

Grinders is pure, deluxe shit!! Never had a burger in that toilet, that was worth a damn. Crappy food, crappy service and damned crappy prices. Yeah, a real fun place to go...

Streetcar Cabal is full of caffeine overdosed, craft brew intoxicated idiots who when stupid have no desire to do as asked, and want to inflict pain on anyone. Whatever it takes to take these morons down is fine.

You people just do not understand how things are. We hipsters WANT a streetcar, and we're gonna get one. End of story. Admittedly we live in apartments and condos that have property tax subsidies and you will have to pay for our streetcar, but tough! We want it and we're gonna get it. And if you don't like it, you can always move, which is what we'll be doing when we reproduce and need to live somewhere safe with good schools, and do you think we're going to pick up the tab for the streetcar? Noooooo! But it will be our legacy.

I want to see a video of Sly trying to get into his skinny jeans.
What a hipster!

Who did Sly hire to do his tweeting for him anyway? Does he realize that whoever it is makes him look like a total jackass 99% of the time?

I will vote for the streetcar if they ever bring it across the Missouri River.

I wonder how many of the commenters can even vote in our elections?

Didn't you north of the river folks get excluded?

The douche and the head nigger bickering in CK....whatta shithole cowtown!

KCK Commissioner Maddox said...

It's not witty retort if the money was foolishly spent on legal fees; it's more twitty retort, that is ignorant. Unnecessary fees, legal costs from a saavy lawyer who knows how to top on spurious cost and have the public pay for it. No, that' not witty at all... it's downright criminal and unethical.

I can vote in your fucking elections but I still say that Grinders is a pit full of monkey shit. Bad food, bad service, bad everything. No, no, Grinders is a place I would avoid like a gay nigger...

Amazing! This feckless bastard "Feel Good" James has nothing better to do than trade meaningless barbs with the equally feckless Stretch. Makes one yearn for the return of the Funk... The Mayoral Titan once known as Mayor Smartwithnothinghouser. With "Feel Good" you get him and his rapper/criminal son. With the Funk you get the notorius and putrid Squid/Gloria Squadrito. I wonder what has cost the City more... "Feel Good's" spawn or the cost of defending and settling the Squid's reckless, feckless and racially insensitive banterings?

Inafunkaboutthefunk said...

You gotta give "Feel Good" some credit. Realizing that the urban poor dont pay much in the way of income tax, he and his council buddies have instituted the most massive sales tax increases in the history of Kansas City. Smooth, Sly! Even Cleaver gives his constituents a better treatment. But that again, you are not your basic african american person or african american politician, are you?

Inafunkaboutyael said...

Speaking if feckless, where is Yael Aboolakah on all this train stuff? Or has he determined that intoning his opinion about the trains wont help him stay longer in his "job" at the Star which is what I believe is the only thing he cares about.

What say ye, Yael T Abooboo?

So evey major and most minor cities now have some form of rail transit. Successful and healthy too. But you northland and Overland Park geniuses have it all figured out huh?

Brilliant.

You're ill the guys in 1900s St. Louis screaming "don't waste money on railroads we have the river and it will always be the major shipping network for the country! Let little bitty Chicago piss away it's money on Eco Devo schemes!!!!!"

the Polar Bear-son said...

The Northland is free of the Negro, therefore we are virtually crime free. There is a direct correlation between the two.

Northland = Negro free

Northland = Virtually crime free

If the anti-streetcar people are in the minority, Gunnar, why are the hogs at the trough so afraid of a fair city-wide vote?

I notice that those who use gutter language, are commenting as Anonymous. If you are man enough to talk like that, I would think you are man enough to fess up and tell the world who you are.

Of course, you won't, because your Mother, bless her heart, taught you better than that.

There are mother's, sisters, aunts who read these comments. Isn't it time to stop the 6th grade trash talk and act like the 23 year old that you are?

I would like to read a comment. I don't need nor want what you perceive as kwel. It is just ignorant. Stop the nasty. Makes all of Kansas City look pathetic.
