TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY POLITICOS PREPARE TO BACK KEMPER CLAN ARENA PLAN FOR FEAR OF KANSAS BIZ POACHING AMERICAN ROYAL!!!



Fear of losing The American Royal to Kansas amid the ongoing Border War has inspired an upcoming effort among local politicos to capitulate to the Kemper Family and support the destruction of Kemper Arena for a new equestrian center.

To wit . . .

MARINER KEMPER STAYS WINNING BEHIND THE SCENES AND HAS EARNED THE SUPPORT OF KANSAS CITY POLITICOS TO BACK HIS FANCY NEW BARN!!!



How did the Kemper clan win this fight?!?!

BEHIND THE SCENES, KEMPER REPS INFORMED KANSAS CITY POLITICOS THAT THE AMERICAN ROYAL WAS GETTING STRONG OFFERS TO MAKE THE MOVE TO KANSAS!!!

This nicely placed threat from the 1% family was enough to send Kansas City local politicos into panic mode and ready to make the rich even richer with a destruction of a bit of local history.



We were first informed of this development by AWESOME KANSAS CITY INSIDERS who seemed receptive to the pitch/threat.

Here are some supporting arguments . . .

- Expect Fancy Math Regarding Bonds . . . The banking family did some math for politicos and now the local decision makers will be sharing the accounting tricks that focus on a simple bond refinance and pledges of more Kemper Clan cash from friends.

- American Royal and the rodeo/cow circuit is bigger than most people think . . . Expect more politico to play up the potential of the equestrian culture and center i.e. white people fun.

- New multi-use facility touted over competing with the Sprint Center . . . Which, I guess, nobody thought of back when they built the place.

But, again, most of all . . .

THE THREAT OF LOSING THE AMERICAN ROYAL IN THE ONGOING BORDER WAR HAS SENT KANSAS CITY POLITICOS INTO A PANIC AND READY TO HAND OVER EVEN MORE CASH TO HONOR ONE KANSAS CITY'S RICHEST FAMILIES!!!

And while we respect this swindle . . . We look forward to everybody from the Mayor on down to scoop up this load of B.S. and serve to local voters.

Might need to go back and blame this one on Kay for lack of our NBA team.

You meant HAND OVER EVEN MORE TAXPAYER CASH right?

Don't worry they will have lot's of fresh taxpayer cash to play with once they cram through this new TDD coming up.

Remember George Guestello said...

George Gustello did more damage to the American Royal in 4 years vs 100 plus years of existence. The AR will never recover from the Gustello tenure. A true leach of taxpayer money to support his pathetic yuppie, Chamber of Commerce suck-up existence.

Too bad they have decided we have no use for a 15,000 seat arena.

Of course, Im sure the bond division of the kemper family banks will be more than happy to underwrite the new notes.

"American Royal and the rodeo/cow circuit is bigger than most people think" - this may in fact be true. idk, but it will at least be interesting to to hear the arguments. i am totally speculating on this, but isn't part of the new structure they want to build supposed to include a ag museum? given that iowa (the largest corn producer) and nebraska (the largest cattle producer) are a daytrip away this is worth at least giving a fair shake before dismissing it immediately.

Just another easy manipulation of what passes for city government in KCMO.
Promise, threaten, offer any numbers you want, and instantly the empty-headed folks at 12th and Oak open the vault to the taxpayers' money.
Meanwhile, bus service is decreased, there's no money to fix streets, code enforcement employees are laid off, and the police budget needs to be cut.
A carnival on the plains.

When George Gustello took over the reins of the American Royal, he had no farm or ranch background. He was a UMKC grad who was a butt boi for the Chamber of Commerce. He was trained to survive off taxpayer money.

Rather than embrace the history of Kansas City, and the farm and ranch industries that basically put KC on the map, Guestello chose to follow the trail of the Yuppie. BBQ and beer festivals, formal events like the Boots and BBQ luncheon, basically a Chamber western day, dumping the Pro Rodeo, cutting the events from a week down to a week-end, pricing the event to where farm and ranch families could not afford to attend. Basically pissing off people that had 100 plus years of history with the American Royal.

Gustello took his marching orders from a group of supporters (check the AR Board and Directors) that wanted to dump the "cow town heritage" and move the American Royal to a more cosmopolitan image....drunken Yuppies eating BBQ and fighting, a fashion night debutante ball and a opportunity for KC's elite to dress like the cast of Dallas once a year. Now people who supported the American Royal for over a 1oo years won't go near it. That is the legacy of George Gustello, like it or not. Now they want the KC taxpayer to pay for the social elite's poor choice as the leader of a once great organization.

If Mariner wants a new building, let the AR Board and social divas that control the organization fund the new building. It will only provide entertainment to a miniscule segment of the KC population.

Chamber of Commerce is a joke. An expensive joke on both sides of the river. Supporters of corporate welfare projects.

Should be called Chamber of Scam Artists. Drunks and shirt chasers apply only.

Have you seen the way these people dress? The cast of Dallas would be covered in shame to be compared to these fools. AR Board and the urban cowboy BS should pay for their own social club house. They can drink, eat themselves stupid, and wife swap with their own money.

I think it's a great idea. It can bring some East Coast and European show jumpers in, and we can all drink wine and watch the Grand Prix horses! And then some world class dressage competitions would be absolutely key! Support it! I think Anne Romney might come as a guest, and maybe even sponsor a horse or two. I am just drooling at the prospect of seeing more equine competitions.

Your KCMO elected "representatives" get their butts handed to them by the swells yet again!
And all on your dime.
A city that works.
Just not for you.

Should have been in Kansas in the first place. Put it in KCK somewhere with potential like up by the race track and the legends.

Anonymous said...

4:08 you are a crazy ass bastard. A Kansas D-bag. This is the last thing KCK needs. We have enough assholes not paying their way. Our taxes are so high from the failure of the Legends and the race track give free ride. How many bankrupt ass holes do we have to bail out?

10:54 - The Prince of Darkness (George Guastello) left the American Royal seven years ago. He is off selling crazy at Union Station, as the AR was all stocked up. Let it go. You should come back around and see the difference. You might feel differently now.

The powers should just tell KCMO to Fuck off. No more money. Watch how fast things change.

Let them pay for their own little vanity project. They don't even bother to advertise the events anymore.

7:51 Guestello may have moved a mile east but the same social elite that installed the moron are still on the board and pulling the strings. For every person Guestello ran off, and there are many, it will take 20 years or more to overcome his/boards stench. The American Roy can go fuck themselves. My money goes elsewhere.
