TKC READER REAX: CONSIDERING THE FUTURE OF 'LOW COST' KANSAS CITY!!!
This morning we want to feature some EXCELLENT insight from one of our more BRILLIANT READERS that speaks to the disconnect betwixt the local elite and people who actually care about the future of Kansas City.
Moreover . . . This brief note once again reminds us that editoralists have lost perspective on this town and their PR WORK might not be appreciated but isn't going unnoticed.
Recently, Yael wrote this: Embrace Kansas City’s low costs to attract people and jobs
And here's a FAR MORE RELEVANT reaction . . .
The cost of living in "low cost Kansas City" has been rapidly escalating over the past few years of the Sly "Feel Good" James administration (aided by the equally feckless council titans and Two Ton Troy Schulte).
During this time time the City debt has gone up by billions, sales taxes have been raised with more to come and the pensions of the municipal employees (future debt hidden from view by the ruling political titundum but a certainty to be added on to the tax burden of the citizens) and various big money projects are bubbling up in the cauldon of these municipal witches (the needless new, single terminal airport and the toy train to name two of the bigger, more noticeable upcoming expensive, tax consuming boondoggles).
Maybe Yael, the former Lion of the Press, but now only a shell of his old self devoted primarily to preserving his pay check at the expense of the hundreds of his former colleagues who have been pushed over the side is remembering the old, better days in the City he once ruled.
I have been mortified to watch these greedy, immoral buffoons (Yael included) march the hapless citizens towards certain fiscal Armageddon. It's going to have to be municipal angels stepping up to the public plate to stop these people from ruining what once was a pleasant, low cost City where it was easy for most people to raise a family.
