Are We In The Kansas City Golden Age?!?!



Quick look at promo hype that's circulating among all the consultants paid to spam social media.

Description:

"At the heart of what makes this city great isn’t just what there is to do. It’s deeper than that. It’s how we do things that make Kansas City truly special."

The "Golden Age" line might be just a bit over the top.

You decide . . .

A golden age of hype, PR, and outright delusion.
Sly's showing us all to the promise land.
And only KC's massive debt, crime-ridden neighborhoods, broken down utilities and streets, and subsidized projects will beat us there!
Frosty.

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

Let's see: Truman Sports Complex, Kauffman Center, P &L District, Sprint Center, Sporting Park, Crossroads, Plaza, Union Station...Sly had nothing to do with any of them!!! All happened before he showed up, and nothing has happened since he arrived!

it's up to private enterprise to fill n the blanks now, anyway. for example, the hotels and apartments downtown. hope it works. and, if it does, it will be neat.

The Golden Age only starts after we deport the spics and shoot the niggers.

"The core of the problem to what plagues this city isn't the superficiality of leadership. It's much more structural than that. It's the adherence to a dysfunctional belief system built upon the Democratic Party which governs this city."

Or, it could be that you're just a bunch of racist fucks. You've been treating blacks like shit since day one, & you just can't figure out why they don't behave better toward you.

I think they might be confusing "Golden Age" with "Golden Shower"

Talk about lack of truth in advertising; where was the crime tape, chalk outlines, pathetic schools and sewage floating down Brush Creek?

Of course not. KC's Golden Age was the Pendergast/Prohibition era, when you could get booze, dope, pussy or fine jazz everywhere in town, and at affordable prices. The whole country came to Kansas City back then. We wuz Vegas, baby! Today, most people have never even heard of it.
