SHOW-ME EPIC LOCAL POLITICO SCREED: KANSAS CITY FIGHTS THE FUTURE!!!



Really great ranting here @ the Show-Me blog . . . Somebody must have done something horrible to Patrick Tuohey's cornflakes this morning . . .

Kansas City’s War On The Future

Here's how it starts and it just gets better . . .

"With all the political rhetoric floating around Kansas City, one would think the city is embracing high technology and forward-looking, well, everything. A closer examination reveals just the opposite. The city is using 19th-century politics and policymaking, and hoping for 21st-century results. It is as anachronistic as those future-looking movies of the past."

Lots of great links and tons of evidence in this post that even includes mention of TKC news . . . READ THE WHOLE THING FOR YOURSELF . . . It's a great insight into the current Kansas City taxpayer revolt.

We can't break "tradition", it would be uncivilized!

Same old people; same old insider crap; same old Chamber swells and made law firms; same old contempt for the people who live here.
Same crappy results that only get more and more expensive.
And Sly putting lipstick on a pig and hoping no one notices the snout.
World class.

Well said, my foavorite "Futrue looking movie" is "Metropolis".

I am less than sanguine that we, here is KC will ever become "Metropolis". We could however become Detroit in no time flat.

Pretty good analysis. I can imagine that Mensa boy's only reaction will be to attack the Show Me Institute rather than address the issues raised.

Back to the future....tell me how Burns & Mac is any different than the Pendergast Machine...instead of unnecessary concrete in Brush Creek, we get unnecessary water, sewer, streetcar and airport projects!

Re:...announced that he is leaving Kansas City for the East Coast to seek greater opportunities. Let's hope is David Johnson. I would buy this jerk a one way ticket out of KCMO anytime.

Greater opportunities than in KCMO?!
Impossible; it's the innovation capital of the country.
Maybe he got a franchise with the online sock guy.

9:05: It's Caleb the perpetual student. Probably got an internship at Columbia where he'll be kept grading student essays (a fate worse than death) and away from the public.
