TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY VOLUNTEERS PREPARE TO FIGHT HOBO FEEDING ORDINANCE!!!



Last week our blog community broke news on THE KANSAS CITY HOBO FEEDING CRACKDOWN before any other media outlet.

Here's a statement from a very smart person . . .

"Scott Wagner, why aren't there any public meeting concerning the licensing of people giving food to the homeless? In my opinion, which won't matter, this is a terrible idea. It is safer for them than food from dumpsters, which they frequent or going days without food, which many I have run on the ambulance have had happen. If I had food, I would give it to them. No one should go hungry and no one should be denied the right to help, without government red tape."

But it goes beyond that . . .

LOOK FOR KANSAS CITY NEIGHBORHOOD ACTIVISTS TO START PROTESTS AGAINST THE CITY HALL HOBO FEEDING CRACKDOWN!!!

Already there's an e-mail campaign underway along with a call for more drastic measure to stand up against City Hall cruelty.

KC cruelty means nothing for anybody who isn't on the train.

Good. Gumment has become far too big for its britches.

Fuck the nutty bureaucrats of KC. I'll give food to whoever I want and if the Gods don't like it they can kiss my royal ass.

In a city that consistently has a third of the number of murders of New York with a population only one-sixteenth the size, its' hard to believe that the city council spends its time writing ordinances requiring licensing and inspections for groups providing food to homeless people and that "community activits" spend their time marching around protesting.
Of course, this IS easier than addressing real issues for the larger community and it will probably provide some local tv photo ops for the celebrity starved.
Where in the world are the serious priorities for this community?

I gave a bottle of wine to a homeless gal and she was so happy. I'll do it again.

Serious priorities? Name them, get your plan together, network with your friends and neighbors. If your priorities and solutions are worthwhile I'll go the distance with you.

If you have weeds, you don't water and fertilize them. Feeding the homeless doesn't solve the problem. It doesn't even push it down the tracks. It creates a culture of dependency and subjugation. If you want to help the homeless, contribute to any of the myriad of homeless organizations already providing soup kitchen work.

Only catch, you usually have to be somewhat sober to enter these facilities. The chronically homeless are doing so by choice. They choose their addiction over a home and providing continual food for those too drunk to enter a shelter only exacerbates their drunken and drugged stupor.

The hand you hold is the hand that holds you down.

They are like feral cats. Stop feeding them and they will go away.

I refuse to live in a city that bans people from helping others. KCMO has a very ugly side.

I disliked KC so much, I moved to OP.

I think Tony's bitches just like to complain. If I am wrong, move and put this bitch blog out of business.

The Kaufman Foundation thinks if you starve the Hobo they'll move on.

I hope that all those who have felt contempt for the hungry and desperate people in KC will eventually realize their hubris. A good life is not about self, but service to others in need.

This is about stopping the OP pussies from coming over to my West Bottoms neighborhood and making themselves feel better about their shallow lives. After they return to the safety of OP I get to deal with the homeless shitting in the doorway of my business and robbing my customers. The soup kitchens here have plenty of capacity to feed them, but they have to be sober for a day. Go back to OP and donate cash to the City Union Mission if you want to help. Or invite a homeless person to live under your porch andget firsthand experience.

Every time you give a panhandler food, you make his money buy that much more drugs and alcohol. Maybe the suburban do-gooders should just hand out booze and dope - it's what the "homeless" really want. The ones who want a job and a better life, go sober to one of the agencies and get help getting back on their feet.

The LAST thing KCMO needs is yet another small group of people who don't really know what they're doing forming yet another nonprofit organization to address and issue that is being regularly ignored by the people elected, appointed, and hired to address it. If today you laid all the "activists" end-to-end, the line would go from earth to the moon.
You have to ask yourself how long the same people will do the same thing the same way and still expect a different result.
Albert Einstein's theory of insanity is demonstrated in KCMO each and evvery day.

Meanwhile, City still can't manage its trash pick up service, the curbs at the Plaza are crumbling and the streets are uneven and pitted from all the salt the City used to treat for snow and ice. More focus on nonsensical things and less focus on core City services. #distracted

IS brush creek on the agenda after 25 years? I guess the next city pet project will be what? A fleet of steamships on the river?

That would be cool.

Genocide is the solution of the homeless. Fucking amoebas parasitic burdens. Dirty creatures with no purpose.

Mother fuckers can strip a catalytic converter clean off your car and scrap it out all while you're working your ass off at your job. I agree with Mein Fuhrer.

TKC, I don't know who your tipster is, but in this case they're 100% wrong. There were ad nauseum public meetings on this topic as well as meetings with nonprofit groups. There were many chances for folks concerned about feeding the homeless to weigh in. If they missed it, that's too bad. They weren't paying attention.
