MUST SEE!!! KCPT WEEK IN REVIEW FEATURES KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY ELECTION TOY TRAIN STREETCAR DEBATE!!!



Our TKC bloggy community was FIRST to preview this debate and now it's online for Kansas City Internets denizens to endure.

CHECK OUT KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR DEBATE BATTLE KICKING OFF KCPT'S WEEK IN REVIEW!!!

Take a look . . . I'm only about 5 minutes into this thing and already I've noticed Mayor Pro Tem Cindy Circo lying about 3 times . . . Also, I can see Patrick Ishmael's puppet strings and just wonder if it was Rex Or Crosby in charge of his opinion tonight.



Still, this is probably the last blast of real streetcar debate . . . After that it's all last minute bombshells and and desperate zero hour politicking . . .

After the toy train fight, other topics include . . .

- Missouri Ballot Run Down From Right To Farm To Mo Transit Tax . . .

- Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts vs. Tea Party Milton Wolf Contest . . .

- JoCo Election Tidbits . . . And A BUNCH of Sunflower State issues

All things considered, it was a show jam packed with info that may or may not sway the upcoming toy train vote and the tiny percentage of registered voters who will decide this thing..

Developing . . .

Nice find before the inevitable streetcar panic model media blitz. There is no more middle ground in kC.

It was fun to see sherry get called out on her ill informed lie about what that reports said.

Must happen to her a lot in court, which is why she has so much free time to fight to preserve her illegal squatting on the trolley track right of way.

Nothing is funnier than watching the show me shills promise they will suddenly be transit activists - WE SWEAR - if only they can defeat the biggest transit initiative in city history.

With all the other serious issues in the region that KCMO could be playing a role in addressing, it's really a shame that all this time, effort, energy, and gobs of money have been spent fighting over something as irrelevant to most local residents as a 2.2 mile streetcar.
It's no wonder the region lags so many others in economic vitality and so many aspects of the kinds of things that actually affect the kind of quality of life and really attracts people and companies.
Whatever happens on election day, this has been a big big loser for KCMO.

The Streetcar will not benefit the eastside. If 90% of the tax was coming from other areas, then why was all of the east side included in the taxing district???

Vote No On Question A!

The whole debate was a joke Cindy kept talking in Circles and lying if I was on the line about voting for this she would make my mind up to a No. And wow has she aged.

Because the majority of east side voter support transit improvements, and realize that trains are an important component of a good system.

Unfortunately for freedom, most of us can read a map, too, so we can see that most of the plan is to be built on the east side in te neighborhoods where people need better transit to get around.

Unfortunately for whatever white dude they trot out, we all know trains are better, faster, more reliable and can carry more people than buses, so all those "buses are good enough guys" don't really hold much water over here..

Circo's speil was about as convincing as listening to my nail tech babble about politcs while doing my monthly manicure.

How much money can we "leach" off the taxpayers for the next 100 years.

There is your TDD and Toy Train in a nutshell.

Just building a World Of Toy Trains Park outside the city limits for the kidults would be a lot less expensive then bankrupting Jackson County.

This toy train deal is good! It can help CK become a world class leader in the garage and yard sale sector!

Other costs that these bozo toy train proponents never count include:

The feeder buses needed to bring riders to the trains;
The interest on the debt that rail transit agencies take on but bus agencies rarely have to;
The maintenance costs that mount up after about 30 years;
The subsidies to the development they all promise will happen after the rail line is built; and
The hardships caused by the slow growth that results when businesses are discouraged by the high tax rates required to support the rail lines and transit-oriented developments.

Guys, we went to Spain and toured the factory. Checked the whole deal out front to back. Gonna be great.

I knew when I first laid eyes on those shiny, sleek cars that I just HAD TO HAVE ONE.

I haven't felt that way since I saw the Spring '12 Coach line with that crimson red Madison Maggie handbag. I got two of those, lol.

What do you mean "we," white bread northlandnebraskamensabot?

Personally I thought the debate didn't even get started before it was over. Devoting 15 minutes to a mess that is going to screw citizens for decades is sad, but a heck of a lot more than the cowards devoted at the local commercial stations.

15 minutes is an eternity in today's instant gratification oriented media.

Empty buses: Economic wastelands

Full streetcars: Vibrant communities and economic flourising

I think it's your head that is an empty wasteland 1:34.

Two people using Tuscons toy train to commute early morning to work (after the media hype fest freebie party) isn't exactly a roaring success.

All I could think about watching Cindy was those big juicy titties laying to the side with my cum dripping off them. Ohhhhhh.

Chester The Midtown Perv said...

Now that is some TKC discourse.

Shame on you bitches who claim Cindy has aged.

She is simply getting sweeter and more juicy. I would love to examine those hindquarters and give those supple cheeks a squeeze.

Cindy, you are fine woman, tan and lovely. I want to caress that lovely huge ass and round ample breasts. You do a fine job of representing. Stay strong sister!

I doubt if Cindy has read the ballot language for prop A. She seemed to be a little out of her element on TV. They should have looked at the other stuff she has done on TV. It is not her medium. She can't think fast enough and so relies on party gossip in a dumb blond voice.

Nice cut and paste, Steve. Too bad about your source. Sucks to be lied to, and in your case, it sucks to be fooled.

St. Louis thanks you for your "work" ensuring that mayor slay's 2 streetcar projects move up the federal queue...

Cindy Circo's eyes reveal an empty shell of a soul, who's sold out to the eco-development mantra of business interests seeking to exploit KCMO tax revenues.

Anonymous said...

Basically the streetcar asks you to reach into your kids pocket and take his money to pay for it because the tax is for 25 years and the operational cost will be on top of this. Vote NO on A and vote NO on 7.

Neither side was particularly articulate or convincing. Cindy didn't seem to believe what she was saying.
