Northeast News Explains Consequences Of Kansas City Infrastructure Neglect



In the latest issue of the Northeast News, El Bryan offers an EPIC COMIC TRIBUTE to Council Lady Alissia Canady and publisher Michael Bushnell posts this scathing critique of Kansas City's priorities or lack thereof . . .

Northeast News: The consequences of ignored infrastructure

Money line . . .

"Flooding was common in a number of low lying areas already prone to flooding even when less than an inch of rain falls. All of this is the symptom of an EPA mandate – which dictates the city’s storm sewers be upgraded and repaired – that has been ignored by City Hall since its announcement in May of 2010. According to that mandate, the city has, through its deferment of sewer upgrades and repairs, allowed over 6.5 billion gallons of untreated sewage into local streams and rivers. You heard right folks, untreated sewage. We’ll just let that sink in for a minute.

Instead, the Mayor and Council chose to pursue fancy, legacy building projects such as the toy train streetcar and subsidizing downtown luxury lofts and hotels . . ."

You decide . . .

Kansas Cty has become a literal shit hole. It flows in the streets, streams and rivers and is on the sidewalks. Every time it rains. Here's one paragraph that explains why and how. So glad I don't live there anymore.

I'm so glad I don't live there anymore that I obsessive litter the Internet with my inane comments about KC. Because of the toy train and also having people live downtown, thousands of people are poor and maybe dead or raped. If it wasn't for the growth and success of downtown, everything everywhere would be awesome, just like it used to be in 1990, when our murder rate was only like 2 or maybe 3, it never rained hard, the east side was a thriving Camelot, Northeast was just like Brookside, Brookside was like Mission Hills, and the Northland had sidewalks everywhere for no one to walk on. And Sue Burke's filter empire was rivaling Walmart for biggest business in fucking history. Funk houser had our economy chugging along and there were no potholes, just parking as far as the eye could see for free. Them was salad days, I tell ya

^^^^^^Nice to see how well they taught to use adverbs and the subjunctive in Coffeyville, trolley boy.

You are safe from the flooding in The Downtown Light Towers! And the soon to open Mike Burke Hotel! You can watch the lower 99% class battling the floods from the luxury and elegance of our Roof Top Bar and Patio!

What's a subjunctive?

I think I'll take a pass on serious civic criticism from Mike Bushnell, a man who couldn't run a fucking neighborhood association meeting and whose claim to fame is publishing a weekly Snyders advertisement.
