TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! PREZ TRUMP KILLED CORRUPT KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR PART DEUX!!!



Thankfully, government checks and balances are working against another corrupt Kansas City's vote that attempts to ram through the toy train streetcar by way of mail-in ballots and citywide voter suppression.

Take a look:

Show-Me: Can the Kansas City Streetcar Expansion Be Built Even If It Wins?

Here's the math from some of our favorite number crunches:

"The language from the court ruling allowing the new transportation development district (TDD) throws another wrench in streetcar advocates’ plans: no taxes or assessments can be collected from within the district until enough external funding—in this case federal funds—are available. The Trump administration has made the availability of federal funds highly unlikely. Congress could seek to continue federal New Starts funding, according to Rich Sampson of the Community Transportation Association of America, but it will be an uphill climb. And even if streetcar funding is provided by Congress, the administration may choose not to spend it."

Translation and posted just to ruin the Friday night of so many streetcar consultants, fanboys and acolytes . . .

DISGRACEFUL STREETCAR TDD EXTENSION ADVOCATES ARE THREATENED BY A FULL STOP TO FEDERAL FUNDING OF THEIR SKETCHY SCHEME!!!

More importantly, the Streetcar is really a legacy of the Prez Obama Administration and GOP tidal wave of 2016 effectively ended public support of the former Prez and his policies.

Finally, credit where it's due . . . This time around, while Clay Chastain's plan is also dependent on Federal cash, he has a better funding mechanism overall and isn't afraid to put his efforts in front of the entire KCMO voting public.

And so, falling ridership numbers and increasingly angry and defensive streetcar "advocacy" signals a failed local transit experiment based on tax breaks, subverting local Democracy and hype rather than real world success.

You decide . . .

Actually, I have faith in the voters. There's still a chance that some residents in the tiny TDD area will have the good sense to vote no and stop this nonsense once and for all. They should have got the message that KC doesn't want another streetcar line when the public rejected the extension back in 2014.

Would really like to see more effort into improving what we have already built. The streetcar supporters promised a lot of new business in Downtown the only thing I've seen so far is more tax breaks for lofts rather than self-sustaining business.

Moveon.org, this thing is a fun little tourist attraction but it's not a real form of transit. One of the links you had posted earlier talked about more federal funding for the MAX bus rapid transit expansion. That's what we need to be focusing on if we really want to improve transportation in KCMO.

Maybe some of the swells in Hollywood will fund the streetcar extension.
Give Disney a call!
The KCMO circus never seems to end.

streetcar has been good for some events but who really wants to "park and ride"?

During the women's march the thing was too slow and people just walked or took a cab. Another streetcar isn't going to help the situation.

If Kansas wins against Oregon the fans should celebrate KU going to the final four by pushing a streetcar into Brush Creek or Missouri River.

Tony, ya think the Fake-Chuck sorry ass dumbshit posts are way past DELETE TIME?!!!! For two days, some of my comments are copied as replies when the OCD afflicted Fake-Chuck (actually a closet Chuck fanboy) thinks he's replying to Chuck, or to anyone who agrees with, or defends the free speech of Chuck. Put Sick Suck aka Fake-Chuck, the rantoholic cuck, off his TKC codependency, for freak's sake.

Hey there 11:20 , keep fighting the liberals Boyz from the hood ¡!

Once again 11:32 chuck you fail to grasp what is apparent to the rest of us. No one is trying to curb your free speech. We are free to post as much(that's you) and whatever we want. We are all just tired of your SAME OLD comments. You don't ever have anything new or witty to add. You keep recycling the old comments you posted two weeks ago. I guess I'll break it down for you because you seem incapable of grasping this. YOU ARE BORING. I can't speak for ever else has posted on here but I am certainly not Byron. I AM NOT BYRON.

11:20 is the one obsessed with Chuck (= the Chuck Stalker). The second guy is just creating chaos around the Chuck Stalker, by repasting his vile comments.

It's rich that the Chuck Stalker is whining for Tony to save him.

Anonymous said...

Possible. He keeps referring to 9:34 (and there's no 9:34 on this thread), and he doesn't know "your" from "you're."

Maybe Tony's doing us all a favor by keeping him in his trailer and on this blog.

Think the other guy incorrectly updated the times; everything else appears to be a copy-and-paste from previous comments from the Chuck Stalker.

Tony (and everyone else) would be overjoyed if the Chuck Stalker would self-exile. The other guy would probably just melt away.

Trump needs the cash for the "Great Wall". Which, given the emerging MX economy, will only serve to slow down the flow southward.

Chuck is the one who is posting all of these comments. He is sad that way.
