TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! CONSIDER THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR RACIAL DEBATE TOP 5!!!



In these last desperate hours of Kansas City Toy Train Debate the future of the streetcar now depends on East side voters and the largely African-American electorate in the urban core.

Regarding our graphic for this post . . . Like most images on this blog, it's probably in bad taste but the Soul Train holds a special place in our heart and reminds us of better times spend mimicking dance moves almost as impressive as those of Mayor Sly.

But I digress, let's get back on track . . .

THIS MORNING KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS DEMAND THAT WE EXAMINE THE TOP 5 RACIAL ARGUMENTS CONFRONTING THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR!!!

Here's the word and EXCLUSIVE INSIGHT that will hopefully offend just about everybody . . .

Let's make it hot . . .

LIBERAL WHITE LADIES LIKE BARB SHELLY AND CINDY CIRCO KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR THE BLACK COMMUNITY!?!?!


Certainly, TKC defers most important life decisions to white women but not everybody is a trusting soul like this town's least favorite blogger.

And so . . . White lady advocacy against African-American political opposition to the toy train streetcar is fascinating because it's so horribly insulting and condescending .

Both Barb Shelly And Cindy Circo deplore allegations of discrimination by African-American opponents of the streetcar and seek to reassure the East side that MERCIFUL WHITE LADIES know better than Black people when it comes to what's best for the East Side.

The argument here: The goodness of liberal white ladies is far more important than self-determination for any community.

In fairness, TKC is more than willing to accept that argument but only when it's made by bikini/lingerie models and not old-school lady politicos.

On the other hand . . .

CAN THE EAST SIDE TRUST THE CONSERVATIVE ELITE WHITE PEOPLE WANTING TO PARTNER TO DEFEAT THE TOY TRAIN?!?!?


Politics makes strange bedfellows and Rex Sinquefield money spends just as sweetly as any other kind of cash. But c'mon . . . The guy who links public schools to the KKK doesn't really have the needs of the urban core at the forefront of his huge noggin.

In fairness, in politics as in life . . . The only color that really matters is green. That tragic truism leads us to this point . . . 

FACT CHECK: YES THE TOY TRAIN WILL SPIKE TAXES ON PO'FOLK IN THE URBAN CORE AND THE "TAX DISCRIMINATION DISTRICT" REMAINS AN APT DESCRIPTION OF THE HORRIBLE PLAN!!!


Only consultants and fools have an excuse to believe eco-devo pie-in-the-sky promises about a toy train Renaissance for the East side . . . The sketchy scheme is nothing but theory at this point. However, higher sales and property taxes are very real. Moreover, taxing the urban core to pay for hipster luxury and Burns & Mac benefit is probably one of the most shameful tactics ever adopted by the civic elite. . . In fairness, SWEET CONSULTING CONTRACTS to African-American political power players have squashed this debate within the urban core community and when it gets down to it Jason Parson really is a nice guy.

And here's where things get raw . . .

THE SORDID SUBJECT OF VIOLENT TEEN FLASH MOBS RIDING THE TOY TRAIN IS TOO SCARY FOR EITHER SIDE TO DISCUSS OPENLY!!!


Behind the scenes, one of the major talking points against the toy train streetcar phase deux is that it'll serve as transit for violent teen flash mobs. Like it or not, it was the flash mob concern and not just taxes that really drove the streetcar out of Brookside. Now that same subject has Midtown Kansas City denizens scared silly.

Conversely, the Kansas City violent teen flash mob fear factor is ALSO BEING EXPLOITED BY TOY TRAIN SUPPORTERS who are using the tragic topic as a talking point to call out the racism of their opposition . . . In the local liberal lexicon, fear of flash mobs has been utilized to play the race card against the more conservative brand of white people which is making these cynical toy train advocates complicit in employing the flash mob boogeyman for political gain as well.

Translation: Nobody gets out of Kansas City racial politics clean and both streetcar opposition and supporters have enthusiastically played to this violent teen flash mob fear/hatred/racism. Meanwhile, neighborhood public safety concerns have once again been ignored any only casually addressed as an opportunity to propagate this tawdry bit of flash mobbing fear as if the practitioners of this tactic were some kind of awful political blogger.

Last but not least . . .

MAYOR SLY HAS MOSTLY BEEN REGARDED AS A BIT OF A SELLOUT AND NOW HIS PROMISES OF ECO-DEVO ATTENTION MIGHT SEEM SUSPECT TO MANY AFRICAN-AMERICAN URBAN CORE DENIZENS!!!


This one's tough because, despite it all, we generally respect everything that Mayor Sly has accomplished in his career. But the reality is that the Mayor touted his Montgall roots during campaign season but hasn't done much of anything to benefit his old school neighborhood. His agenda has been mostly corporate and eco-devo focused. Mayor Sly's neighborhood concern at this point isn't just disingenuous, it's downright suspicious.

With a flimsy record of 3rd District concern, the Mayor is asking the East side for a blank check and blind trust. And while a vote for public office is one thing, raising taxes on the most economically disadvantaged part of town to pay for an eco-devo scheme is a risky proposition.

This one isn't for TKC to decide but the question is out there and it's the kind of racially divisive quandary worthy of a horrible Spike Lee flop like School Daze . . .

DOES MAYOR SLY HAVE ENOUGH STREET CRED IN THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY TO ASK FOR A BLANK CHECK TAX INCREASE WITH NO REAL PROMISE OF A REWARD?!?!

We'll have to wait about 5 days to find out.

And so . . .

ALL OF THESE RACIALLY CHARGED QUESTIONS CONFRONT THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN AS A FEW EAST SIDE VOTERS WILL NOW DECIDE THE FATE OF THE STREETCAR PHASE DEUX!!!

We could make this thing even more confusing by noting that Latinos and Asians are the fastest growing 3rd District demographic but the legacy of political lobbying groups within those districts fear this fact of life . . . Which is also kind of ray-ray but a topic for another day . . .

Developing . . .

Thank God. An end is near to the endless sniveling associated with this issue.

So, what will Tony drone on about after the election?

Much to come about the dimension of the tokens, color of the vehicles, etc.

This is taking the tone of a 5 year old who does not get their way.

There is a chance that that 5 year old will still be alive and still paying taxes on the streetcar into the 22nd century. The rails will be long gone, but the whole camel will have been all the way in the tent and still stinking stuff up.

I wish I could vote on this, KCMO taxes effect the Northland too.

Does this council even know what they are doing to their chosen career paths to fame and fortune?

Regardless of race, I feel that the city has said: "Hey, I recognize that we've neglected other parts of the city and spent a billion dollars downtown over the past decade, but if you just approve the funding of this streetcar from union station to the plaza, (where most of your kids are unwelcome,) then we'll invest like $300M east of Troost. Sure, It's all gonna be on a streetcar instead of more police, infrastructure repair, or finding solutions for abandoned housing and empty lots that lower your property value and make your neighborhoods unsafe, but we determined that some people don't like riding the bus, so what better way to show you we care than by replacing the bus you currently rely on with a train. It doesn't solve hardly any of your problems, but at least it's an investment. So, you're welcome,"

From one guy who has lived East of Troost most of his life (me) to all of the various streetcar supporters who live west of Troost (and the one from 2nd District in the Northland, wtf?) if we have to spend $250M to get $250M and the stipulation is that it has to be on a train, I don't want the "free" federal money. That $250M could be much more strategically used to improve the areas of this city that have been neglected by city hall for decades. I'm positive we could make as little as $100M go further than $500M so long as it's not spent on a streetcar.

The people who are going to get screwed the most are the ones most invested in the city. The section eight shitbags don't care if it passes. Hell, they don't pay any tax anyway. Too busy getting hand outs. Property owners are screwed if this thing passes. Those who shop in the city are screwed if it passes. 8000 renters moved into the city and hundreds more property owners will be heading for the burbs. Good job KC. The next big federal money grab may well be for urban renewal.

elBryan said...

If 10:33's statement were accurate, the sales tax wouldnt /shouldn't be imposed east of Troost.

There's no point in arguing who the majority is; that will be determined on August 5.

I think the supporters are worried though, because the TDD was created for a reason (to include as many potential YES votes and exclude as many NO votes as possible based on previous light rail results) and they weren't counting on so much push back from the east side. That's why the race baiting has happened. Make no mistake that Brookside/Waldo would have been included in the TDD if the city thought they could have pulled more yes votes than no votes from that area.

Jesus dumbfucks, wake up! said...

There are many myths surrounding the benefits a city can expect from streetcar lines. In reality, streetcars are an outdated mode of transportation that is unlikely to bring in any economic development, says Randal O'Toole, a senior fellow with the Cato Institute.
•Streetcars only travel about 8 miles per hour.
•Furthermore, they have fewer seats than buses, which leaves many riders standing.
•As far as safety concerns, streetcars weigh over 60,000 pounds and gaps in the street create dangerous conditions for cyclists.
•Additionally, streetcars are limited in transportation destinations, which require massive investment to expand streetcar lines.
•However, it costs around $30 million per mile of rail line.

Advocates of the streetcar argue that operating costs are cheaper than buses. This is because a streetcar can move just as many people as a single bus driver can. However, according to the National Transit Database, the cost of operating one streetcar mile is three to four times higher than operating one bus mile. More importantly, the streetcar does not carry enough people each trip to make up for the costs. Indeed, it costs a lot to maintain streetcars -- $1 of maintenance for every $2 spent on operations.

Advocates also argue that the overall economic benefits derived from streetcars through development outweigh the other costs associated with operations and maintenance. However, in nearly every city that claimed economic development as a result of streetcars, many developers and businesses were offered lavish subsidies to promote the local economy. Take, for example, the experience of Portland, Oregon:
•Officials claimed that the streetcar generated billions of dollars of economic development.
•The streetcar served two neighborhoods of roughly equal size. One neighborhood received millions of dollars in subsidies for economic development while the other did not.
•Predictably, the first neighborhood attracted as much as 75 times the investment the second neighborhood did, proving that it was the subsidies, not the streetcars, which were essential to economic development.

Lastly, proponents argue that streetcars will reduce dependence on automobiles and improve overall environmental conditions. But Portland, known as the most successful streetcar line in the nation, has seen a decline in Portland-area transit commuting because of the high costs of streetcars and cutbacks in bus services. Additionally, streetcars consume more energy than automobiles do. The average car, for example, consumes about 3,450 British thermal units (BTUs) per passenger mile whereas streetcars consume an average of 7,000 BTUs.

The socialists who promote and build these light-rail systems never tell you how inefficient they are or how much it really costs to move those passengers. Because it is not their money; it is YOUR money. And it is crucial to remember that these trolley systems are not built to move passengers in the first place. They are built to create a big public show and to generate another government bureaucracy that uses huge sums of taxpayer dollars for construction, operation, maintenance and management of these systems by legions of unionized government workers who then will kick back parts of their bloated paychecks to the Democrat party that favored the system in the first place.

Buses are much lighter than trolleys, only about one-third the weight per passenger, so they use much less energy and therefore have much lower operating costs. Buses are much cheaper to buy. But the trolley advocates always point out that streetcars are “European” and they remind us of America’s storied past when trolleys were everywhere. And indeed they were. They often connected small cities or small towns and often ambled through the countryside. Because in the late 19th century and early 20th there were no paved roads or cars or buses, but there was electricity. And so electric-powered trolleys on steel tracks were a good way to move people the short and medium distances that needed to be covered.

Trolleys disappeared, however, because they were expensive to operate and rigid in their layout. They could not change routes, for instance, in order to accommodate changing ridership and population patterns. A bus can simply go down a different street, or eliminate one route entirely overnight in favor of another.

America’s streets are congested, yet the Obama administration wants to make things worse. Although the economic recession and lack of jobs have reduced some of the pressure on the daily commute, Americans still wasted a grand total of 4.2 billion hours stuck in traffic last year, according to the Texas Transportation Institute.

Instead of providing relief with the $30 billion that drivers pay in taxes at the gasoline pump, the administration is siphoning away billions from this fund in order to bankroll obsolete forms of mass transit. The president and his Department of Transportation have gone on this spending spree in the guise of building “livable communities,” with at least $280 million dedicated to streetcars. The most recent grants have gone to projects such as the following:

• $63 million to the Modern Streetcar Project in Tuscon, Ariz.

• $45 million for streetcars in New Orleans, La.

• $23 million to renovate trolleys in Portland, Ore.

• $23 million for downtown streetcars in Dallas, Texas.

While big city mayors surely will appreciate the hefty serving of pork thrown their way, the rest of us aren’t exactly getting our money’s worth. Trolleys may appeal to a sense of nostalgia for some, but it is important to realize this form of transportation had all but disappeared a half-century ago for a very good reason: the personal automobile.

The left has reignited its love affair with a mode of transportation that allows a select few to decide when and where people should be able to travel. The rest of the country prefers options that maintain individual freedom. Over 96 percent of passenger miles traveled take place in either cars or airplanes. Another 3 percent travel by bus, leaving only a fraction of 1 percent traveling by trolleys or light rail.

Streetcar projects are expensive boondoggles, with average capital costs of $35 million per mile compared to just $680,000 for a bus line, according to Government Accountability Office figures. The trolley’s operating costs are even more inefficient than a bus line.

If Uncle Sam stopped picking up most of the tab for streetcar rides around the country, even the handful of trendy trolley aficionados would quickly trade in their tickets for a local bus pass. The administration’s diversion of gas tax funds for trolleys should come to an end.

Streetcar advocates are doing a good job of preying on the well-ingrained insecurities many have of living in a medium-sized midwestern city; a city that provides a good cost of living and some nice amenities but is never somewhere they can brag to their distant friends about living in.
