KANSAS CITY RUCKUS TONIGHT!!!



Our favorite left vs. right Kansas City talk show is back in action and better than ever.

Take a look at the GOLD STANDARD in local discourse for the overnight . . . Check the latest episode of RUCKUS



Topics include:

- Great back and forth betwixt Yael and Crosby Kemper on the airport

- Toy Train Talk . . . Phase Deux seems doomed already

- GOP election chatter . . . Figuring out which billionaire supports what and who/whom . . .

- Roasts & Toasts are always our fave.

Brief aside . . . For those who read this blog VERY CLOSELY . . . Tonight we witnessed a bit of a RUCKUS in Midtown Kansas City and once again we discovered that the KCPD IS THE KANSAS CITY GOLD STANDARD ON LOCAL STREETS . . . Seriously, there were hobos yelling, flying glass, heavy traffic, screeching tires and pretty much an all around hot mess . . . In the middle of it all KCPD didn't just keep cool but maintained a EXCEPTIONAL level of professionalism. There are a great many things wrong with KCMO but rank-and-file police protecting our hectic streets are just one of the few places where this town excels above everyone else in the region.

Hopefully, we'll have more discussion, debate, discourse and more than our share of hateration along with all kinds of good stuff for the morning update . . . STAY TUNED!!!

You're being too nice. Yael got schooled.

I'd say Yael got schooled as well but the Star and KCC would call me a hater internet troll.

One point that was clear, every argument the airport cheerleaders make has been disproved. This week the TSA disputed their claims, last week Southwest contradicted their date. What's next? How long until we realize that this is just another development scheme?

Mr. Tony,
Good grief, Mr.Abouhalkah got his behind handed to him on gold plated library card. Poor thing just didn't know which way to turn.
That wet dream of an airport ain't never going to be built. The director of aviation and his cohort, the director of the convention bureau both need to be fired. Damn liars, well they are.

Mr. Tony, why is Gwen Grant on that show? I do realize the host and regular panelists try very hard to attain sub-par status, but Grant just can't keep up.

Well, good night.

I went to the coffee shop in Westport yesterday and have been constipated every since....I was trying to take a shit when RUKUS was on tonight. Got a big long turd out just as RUCKUS was over. Sure glad I didn't miss anything cause that relief sure felt good.

Gwen Grant's on the show for the same reason that the corporations all get in line to buy sponsor tables for the Urban League dinner even though they know all the money goes to her and the organization doesn't really do anything.
They're all afraid of her and they think it's cheaper to buy her off than it is to risk a made-up employment lawsuit and other harrassment.
So people like Grant continue to be self-appointed "spokesmen" for the black community and the east side continues to deteriorate and take more of KCMO south of the river with it.
And then those same corporations thow a few hundred thou into the Chamber's Urban Core Initiative and talk about how strongly they feel about all the good they're doing.
The same folks who are sitting on the backhoes digging are the very people encouraging everyone else to help fill in the holes.
Perpetual motion machine.

Yael is such a populist. Three weeks ago he couldn't have been a more fervent supporter of the streetcar, and now he has concerns?!

I'll tell you one thing, now that the streetcar has moved outside of it's tiny little pocket of mostly white, single, 20-somethings, it's lost it's luster.

The Star finally seems to be getting the message on the airport. Take a look at Lee Judge's on-the-mark cartoon in today's paper.

The Star might also be getting on the mark that the elected and appointed officials in KC have no serious engagement and very little interest in addressing the violence and homicides in the city and that the nonprofits do whatever they want without any results or accountability.
About time!

Gwen's comment about KCI security cost-savings was also wrong. When TSA said our current security set up was better, they also said costs would NOT come down in a single terminal because they don't want lines and would simply bring all their people to a central location.

Yael should grow Mutton Chops like Axle Rose!

The only way I will watch Ruckus is if Crosby Kemper is on... I think he's the only left in a responsible position who still makes sense.

Yael is a bandwagon supporter. He hates to admit when he is wrong as evidenced by this episode of SHFRuckus.

Crosby was the only one who had a thought or opinion of his own. Gotta respect that.

You're 100% right. It's all just a ploy to get whatever power and control she can to create the illusion of Black leadership when she's really the picture of parasitic peril.

April fools to the head of the line, please.

Q: What do you get when 3 liberal Democrats face-off against one conservative Republican, with Mike Shanin moderating the Ruckus?

A: A landslide victory for Crosby Kemper!!!!
This guy is G-E-N-I-U-S!!
Only thing I took exception to was his ribbing of Ron Paul.
