CELEBRATE RIGGED KANSAS CITY AIRPORT ADVISORY COMMITTEE ENDORSEMENT OF THE NEW SINGLE-TERMINAL KCI!!!



Now that the dust has settled, let's see how Kansas City is gonna waste more than a BILLION DOLLARS and further destroy this town's economy.

To wit . . .

BEFORE ANYBODY ELSE IN KANSAS CITY THE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY CALLED THE AIRPORT ADVISORY COMMITTEE SINGLE-TERMINAL ENDORSEMENT BECAUSE WE KNEW IT WAS RIGGED!!! NATCH.

Early morning blog readers got the scoop hours before everybody else and really weeks and months prior . . . Now here's other mainstream media turning in their official reports.

Check it:

- PR People Get Paid: KC reacts to KCI Advisory Board's recommendation

- GOP Resistance Is Futile In KC Proper: Graves not convinced yet on single-terminal KCI

- Show-Me Rage: Nearly all the information at ATAG meetings came from the authors of the new terminal plan (Kansas City Aviation Department), the only real option presented in any detail was the new terminal plan, and the process for selecting a conclusion was weighted in favor of the new terminal plan.

- Dead Tree Media Agreement: KCI's future moves in a positive direction

- Taking Off To JoCo Payday: So, what's next for KCI?

- Fox4 Vote Count: After nearly a year of study, 19 out of 24 members of the task force voted to build a new single terminal at KCI Airport.

- KCTV5 Cost Analysis: The project is expected to be one of Kansas City's most important public building projects of the next decade - estimated at more than $1.2 billion.

- KCUR Doesn't Really Know: KCI: Looking Behind The Single Terminal Recommendation

- KMBC Foreshadowing Of Higher Prices: Last fall, a lawyer for Southwest Airlines said it could raise the airline's operating costs by 40 percent.

- Pitch Reminds Us There's No Real Plan On The Table: KTAG and city officials disavowed any cost estimates, saying it's too early and no specific design for a single terminal has emerged.

Again, this blog told readers what was gong to happen FIRST but all of these insights represent the official reaction to this town soaring to new lows.

Another debt hole. You know damn well a lot of the money will be kited and shifted here and there for debt service, paying for the toy freaking loser train especially, etc etc.

Sly will ruin KC.

Just the sewer infrastructure repair costs alone run north of $2 billion.

Let's put the 1.2 Billion toward that hows that for common sense.

Add the $500 million in proposed streetcar extensions in the kitty while were at it.

KC's already $5 billion in the shitter. Good luck getting out.

Might as well borrow as much as possible, build everything we can, then file bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is coming anyway because of underfunded pensions so why not stiff a few more bondholders.

I am trying to sell my house and move away from this city. It's a tough real estate market though. Ugh.

$1.2 million... to start. Anyone care to guess at what the cost-overruns will be? Another $20 million? More?

Tell me about it. When buyers learn about the schools and the e-tax that takes off at least $20,000 from a home value.

'scuse me... $1.2 Billion....

Despite what Slyme thinks, the GOP could not be desperate enough to choose KC whether it has a new airport and toy train or not. Even if it did, there isn't enough real dining, entertainment, etc. here for a convention of that size. Just because some of the local tools get a stiffy over the P&L district, etc. means nothing. Every mid-larger size city has a zone that's filled with hipster wannabe drinking holes. It takes a lot more than that to make a vibrant and active city.

The biggest problem is we have a bunch of idiots and morons in charge who don't know how to sell and market Kansas City. Doesn't help they've neglected it and pretty much totally wrecked it in a few short years either.

Yah no doubt a new airport will attract people who want to come here for the weekends so they can duck and dodge bullets nine times over two days in our wonderful vibrant urban center.

ALL changes like this happen over a huge time period....a really long span. They KNOW this! They expect the public to have short memories from one decade to the next

KCMO is a mess. Rotten schools, rotten infrastructure, crime going through the roof, a real mess.

Anonymous said...

Believe me you won't miss KCMO once your in town or city that knows how to take care of itself.

When your in a shit hole the danger is you'll get used to it and think it's normal.

Advisory Committee LOL

Anonymous said...

I'm laughing because I look at KCMO from the outside.

KC will not be putting up the $1.2billion. The Fed will. KC will only have to put up $50-$75 million. Still it will take a city vote to do that and I lay 15-1 odds they get that passed. It won't pass because the voters will shove it up their ass and the contractors and builders and city officials will piss and moan. Fuckem'

How did you people get stuck with this clown as Mayor?

3:35 PM Sly has ruined Kansas City. It's season of calamity is among us.

Did we get a proposal-analysis on the cost to simply fix and repair what we already have in place vs full blown reno vs full blown teardown and rebuild as an entirely new airport?

Anonymous said...

No. We (they) are taking the buy four new wheels and tires to fix a flat tire approach.

New terminal means higher airfares which will result in fewer flights. Citizens of KCMO lose again.

So now here we are talking single terminal as if it is a fair compromise? Takes absolutely no time to brainwash the masses in this town.

I do believe Bob Berkebile. That is the only hopeful thing about this.

Maybe we mischaracterized Funkerhausers wife as a racist. Maybe she intended Mammy in the "nice" form of the word.

Funk is still winning.

Actually the money comes from the FAA and increased landing fees. It's already there.

Anonymous said...

Don't fix what ain't broken. Don't waste money.

Put it into the pot to develop high speed rail, so we can thin out our crowded skies.

Don't expect the AVIATION DEPARTMENT people to go for that though... or the DEVELOPERS whose mouths are watering at all that money.

INSTEAD, move it to KANSAS. (mahahahahahhahahahhaha) Just kidding.

Anybody at city gumment who votes or cheerleads for this... assure you will THROW HIM OUT OF OFFICE AT THE FIRST OPPORTUNITY.

Tear two terminals down and, boom, single terminal airport. How hard is this? Or spend billions, try to pass costs on to airlines/passengers, airlines move or quit flying into KC area.

P Bear said...

The Toy Train is the only thing that can possibly

save Killa City from the Grifters that continue to

come out of the woodwork.


Fucking Ape Big Mayor comes on Channel 5 and

says that now the Council will make it official.



What a crock of Polar Bear shit. FUCK. There

are some real happy GRIFTERS in Killa City

tonight. Mucho buckos will change hands on

this fleecing of the Killa City taxpayers.

Anonymous said...

8:37 you are wrong. FAA said no funds for KCI terminal project and airlines have to agree to landing fees.

BEWARE of anyone calling themselves "consultants" or "advisory".
They are there to spend YOUR money for a project that is going to benefit THEM. When are we going to learn this lesson?

Knock the old one down and put up a Walmart big box and cut them a check for a billion plus interest.

Our airport works just fine only simpletons like Glazer write stories about how we need a new one. The cocksucker lives and works in Kansas but thinks he can do stories about how a place he doesn't support with any tax dollars should spend other peoples tax dollars. The only good thing Glazer has done for KCMO was when he moved out and was out west in jail.

But any hoo it's the assholes of KC pushing for this fucking airport thing. So you non-assholes best get out and make sure come election time that fucking James isn't voted back into office.
