TKC QUESTION OF THE DAY: KANSAS CITY HATES BURNS & MAC NOW?!?!
The landscape of Kansas City politics is constantly changing and alliances never last for long. Today, a great many Kansas City neighborhood and anti-tax enthusiasts are raging because City Hall is on course to give away some big time subsidy to one of the richest corporations in all of the world.
TODAY'S TKC QUESTION: ON THIS DAY OF FAST FOOD PROTEST DOES KANSAS CITY HATE BURNS AND MAC FOR BEING GREEDY??!?!
Brief aside . . . Speaking of contradictions . . . Among the many sociopaths who comprise this town's political scene a few of you d-bags have raged and touted TKC corporate sponsorship lies (I wish they were true) because we've criticized Mayor Sly's lavish spending. YET TODAY WE EXPECT A VEHEMENT DEFENSE of an upcoming corporate handout. So Koch Bros corporate cash in politics is evil but a KCMO cash giveaway to Burns & Mac is okay??? WTF? Fact: TKC will take a check from whoever but nobody has offered and I'm too sexily shy to ask!!! The bottom line: We're sad to report that Mayor's Sly's acolytes take to bloggy hateration just like the old school Funkhouser crew. Sigh.
Anyhoo . . .
While politics makes strange bedfellows . . . Let's all just admit that nobody wins when Big Mac honcho Greg Graves and Mayor Sly decide to team up.
Again, Anti-Tax activists are going bonkers over this big deal and feeding frenzy that will be approved today . . .
A choice quotes from a recent KSHB story. . .
Patrick Tuohey from Show-Me Institute on the deal that could be worth $42 million:
"It doesn't create jobs for the investment that public dollars are poured into . . . What this amounts to is connected, well-heeled people trading on that connection to take money from taxpayers, to take money from the city to enrich themselves."
CHECK OUT THE BIG MAC ATTACK CITING THE KANSAS CITY E-TAX!!!
And here's why our bond rating is gonna drop . . .
"The people need to understand that the money they're paying in the earnings tax isn't being used for city services. It's being diverted for political favors for people who are connected."
Let's not forget that Kansas City Power Broker Mayor Pro Tem Cindy Circo is part of the effort that ALREADY DELIVERED A UNANIMOUS COMMITTEE APPROVAL YESTERDAY of this big money deal.
She also put on a candidate school for KCMO Council hopefuls that our blog community took to task.
Anyhoo . . . The question is out . . . Now it's time for this blog community to maybe try and blame somebody besides people of color for this town's long slide into bankruptcy.
