Seems like single issue? that's the only thing he has been doing. What else?

He wants to throw our taxpayer money to his friends.

Looks like the voters will just have to trash another one of his hairbrained schemes to funnel money to the Leawood set.

When is that report about how much money already has been spent and how much work has been completed but not yet paid for going to come out?

Is this Glorioso's payoff, or paycheck?

Let's say people gave money to sly's campaign but they are against the streetcar. Now sly gives the money to the streetcar. ..doesn't sound right. can campaign money be spent on such a thing?

Try and remember this won't you rubes the next time you're being scared into extending the e-tax.

I know you won't but it's worth a shot.

Unless of course you like being bent over your faux granite countertops for repeated ass-poundings?

Yes, something smells because Internet screenshots can be doctored real easily to say whatever a spin doctor wants.

Watch out voters! Keep an eye on vague ballot language! I have a feeling that Crazy Clay Chastains light rail language and the Downtown Toy Train might come up on the same ballot soon. Slie and his Clowncil Goons are too stupid not to try something again soon!

Isn't it illegal to use campaign funds for donations like this? Like against federal election laws?

Anonymous said...

Names and addresses of those who voted to extend the e-tax should be published for public shaming.

I honestly want an answer to this if you voted yes the last go-around... just what the fuck were you thinking?

You actually believed that there was no money for basic services? In the face of all the wasteful spending you still fell for that?

What does the E-Tax have to do with the toy train?

If you paid taxes in KC you just might see the connection. Here, I'll help simplify it for you.

Mommy says that there's no money for basic needs such as new shoes that don't have holes in them.

Two days later you see Mommy buying a new Coach purse.

Clear enough for even a turnip truck rube?

Here comes the "different pots of money" part.

I love this part.

No, Timmy, it's all from the same pot of money. Your paycheck.

After crushing defeat at the polls, I was hopeful he would pull the plug on the starter line and cut the losses.

Bring Funkhouser back. Sly is a very sick man. We can only home he realizes it and gets some help.

Recall this idiot of a mayor that we were all too stupid to support initially. He is the worst that KC has ever had - what a shit stained legacy he will leave.

Shit stained legacy of building the single most critical peice of KCs infrastructure in a generation...

The horror!

What losses? The historic investment the starter line has helped usher into the city?

What a fucking dumbass you are.

You people don't understand that Brother Sly is the house nigger for the white power establishment in Kansas City. They took a page from the national Democrat Party playbook. You get a well educated, articulate and clean (to use Joe Bieden's description of Obama in 2007) and you have a bullet proof, Teflon coated front man and if anyone objects, you call them a racist. Sly is a good house nigger and when you have a good nigger, you really got something.

Tony has posted anything new since 9:00. Did he get some new Jordan Carver pictures? Tony, ice will help that elbow and aloe vera for the other sore area.

Maybe Carwash Cleaver can team with "bad English" alonzo and talk sly into not pushing for what looks like "fool's gold". No one really wants cars that don't go to the airport. Get Chastains light rail going- make it go to the airport and thatbisnwhat the public wants. Interconnect the suburbs to the light rail hub in KC and watch it all work out. Last- can some one buy Alonzo some proper English lessons?

Is that Tax Payer Money or DRUG MONEY ???

Anonymous said...

1:51 - WRONG. It's an overpriced tourist tram that will never go any further. And the people of Kansas City had no say in this money grab - only 600 people did, rather. The Public is sick of this selfish egotistical asshole of a mayor - you are in the hipster/design construction extreme minority. shit stain it is.

Short-power.

Light rail to the airport?

Hahaha.

Genius! Spend 4 times as much money to run rail where few people live and no one uses transit, to get to an airport where even in the biggest cities transit is the lowest priority.

smart...

Nancy McNoodlly, most certainly NOT a racist said...

I just really wish that Sly would start being a little more NIGGARDLY with the city's coffers.

Anonymous said...

These are campaign funds 935, not tax payer funds.

When I have a comparable view as dumbshits that don't even read what is in front of them, it diminishes thoughtful understanding.

And bigots can't understand why people don't agree with their point of view.

Nothing like an ARROGANT LOSER. Sly was a loser before he was elected. Now he has proven that he is a POOR LOSER.
Anybody for Mayor.
VOTE NO ON CLAYS deal or Sly and the Gang will steal that money for the Streetcar to NO WHERE.

Talk about unethical. I thought City employees were prohibited from supporting tax issues.
