COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS STARTS KANSAS CITY AIRPORT RUCKUS TONIGHT!!!



Mostly Kansas City airport conversation begins this GOLD STANDARD glimpse at the local discourse for the week as the chattering class considers DEAD TREE MEDIA FAKE NEWS about the airport that's never gonna happen . . .

Take a look:

"Mike Shanin interviews KCMO Councilwoman Jolie Justus about KCI, the convention hotel and the infrastructure bond. Then Annie Presley, Jon Stephens, Pat McInerney and Steve Rose discuss the probability of a new airport facility in Johnson County, the debate over legislative salaries in Kansas and Missouri and Visit KC's top three priorities for 2017 which include the airport, streetcar and hotel."

Take a look:



You decide . . .

Jolie might be one of the worst in-district council members we've ever head. She should have ran at large because she's great at acting like a mini-mayor but horrible when it comes to some of the basic, mundane local concerns.

Where is she on Plaza crime?

Where is she on Hyde Park crime?

The mess in Brush Creek?

Potholes and snow plowing in Brookside?

The list goes on.

I love Jolie, love her politics. But she's not a member of council. She's a mayor.

Does she have MS or do lesbians normally shake that much when being asked to lie on camera?

I can see Russia from my house. *Comrade* Winner, winner, winner. "Let's Make A Deal". Living in America. What do we do now? Come fly with me. Hypnotizing stare.

No. She's a show-pony diversity hire with nothing to contribute but service to developers. Sly James, the sequel.

That dumb bitch will probably get her wish and the single terminal will end up happening.

Loving Jolie and her politics ignores the fact that she's on the public payroll of a municipality and has actual responsibilities for governing a city.
She was a complete joke as the chair of the Public Safety Task Force and is now dabbling in the airport issue about which she has no expertise whatsoever.
If someone like this wants to address national social issues, she needs to either run for an appropriate office or get hired by one of the infinite number of special interest nonprofits.
But the taxpayers in KCMO are paying her to do her current job, not use it as a platform for her own personal beliefs and agenda.
Likable clearly doesn't mean competent or even relevant.

11:57, is that your first attempt at stream-of-consciousness writing? Let there not be a second.

Jolie Justus = self-proclaimed homosexual trailblazer (keep your sex life to yourself, nobody cares) who swore allegiance to Hillary Clinton, and since Clinton was clobbered in November, Justus should resign and slink away. She's Sly James' puppet.

Why in the Hell is Jon Stephens invited on this show so often? He's a Prairie Village PR flack who TOTALLY SERVES AS A MOUTHPIECE for KCMO City Hall and corporate interests. You always know what he's going to say before he opens his paid-for mouth.

Patrick McInerney, while an otherwise intelligent guy, is among the KCMO Democratic Party business class who feeds off of the corruption and dysfunction which is KC government. This is the group which personally benefits by maintaining the status quo whereby a small cadre of well-to-do interests pull the strings, while keeping the East-side subjugated, the West-side under-represented, and the North largely ignored.

Any Ruckus without Mary/Maury the Mouth and Gwen/Glenn "hair hat" Grant is a good Ruckus.

Jolie needs to get a library card so she can check out a few books and expand her vocabulary and actually have something to say when asked a question

Tired of listening to spinning wheels. Fine.

I'll bet you didn't know that part of her council district is North of the River. We were sliced and diced to be included in the 4th District, and we have absolutely NOTHING in common with the district south of the river. It's kind of funny that streets and SIDEWALKS are such an issue for the Council, when we don't have any sidewalks. The streets are narrow with no gutters. Jolie should take a tour of her ENTIRE district sometime.
