Kraske Kisses Up To Mayor Sly

Steve Kraske: Sly James has KC feeling good about itself again

Sly James is king of the world - or maybe just Kansas City. Either way, let's pause for a moment to appreciate just what King James achieved this week. Make no mistake: The degree of difficulty in passing three general-obligation bond proposals - the largest GO bond authorization in city history - ranks as a treacherous nine on a 10-point scale.

HISTORY REPEATS

Within weeks of President GW Bush's inauguration in January 2001, Vice President Dick "Big Oil" Cheney (former Halliburton CEO)began the secretive Energy Task Force meetings.
It would be years later when classified documents were released to researchers, that the public would learn that what Cheney was doing, as earlier as February 2001, was dividing up the Iraqi oil fields among Western coalition partners. Why were they doing that? Because they knew that the events of 9/11 were coming within months.

Fast-forward to our current 2017 news. President Trump is just 2+ months post-inauguration. His Secretary of State (U.S. foreign policy) is Rex Tillerson who just retired as CEO of Exxon (Big Oil) to lead the Cabinet department. The corporate media propagandists, at the behest of our federal government/military industrial complex have been blaring that Syrian President Assad gassed his own people. The evidence says otherwise.

Sounding familiar yet?

President Trump has been duped into military action, there will be more, there will be other countries, there will be an escalation of war-mongering to fulfill the Big Oil foreign policy agenda.

Can't say I'm sorry for the second one. She know Kylr was the prime suspect in Kopetsky's disappearance and chose to go home with him (to cheat on her boyfriend).

Maybe a few more special snowflakes in ditches will remind us that our ill thought out actions have consequences far greater than we can imagine.

Millennials seem to think they are immune from criticism of bad decisions. This was the worst of bad decisions and she's dead now because of it.

Whatever. Chemical weapons used on children in mass is not something anyone should stand around and ignore. General Mattis especially.

Kraske and Sly talking about hoe "Kansas City is feeling good about itself again".
It's like someone with stage four cancer taling about feeling good about themselves again.
Pure delusion.
But folks like this apparently have actually come to believe their endless barrage of tripe.
The fifth worse-managed city in the country, one with fully a third of the number of murders of New York City, some of the highest water/sewer bills in the region, and the highest total tax rates in the metro.
Feeling good about themselves?
How about them Royals?

10:12 After Obama's 8 yrs. of red lines of and running away from everything we have a President with a backbone that won't let things slip and takes action when action is warranted.

As far as evidence saying otherwise on Assad gassing his own people, is something you have pulled out of the air. There is full evidence Assad deliberately gassed his people.

This has nothing to do with oil, Assad picked this fight not Trump. This is about humanity something Obama and democrats know nothing about.

To have let this go on like Obama did, would be like the people who turned their back on Hitler gassing the Jews.

If you want to go after big business people go after Hillary Clinton for the money she got from the Saudi's for favors.

Good morning geezers. Report to the day room for your meds & diaper changing. Chuck & Tracy get out from under your beds. You made it through another day. Chuck please refrain from posting on Tony's blog until we can get your meds balanced. You know how unhinged you can get. Remember, if you can't be nice...no Fox news for you guys.

I hope to God that Trumps bombing of Syria serves as a warning to nutball libtards everywhere.

10:20 = Unintelligent response in the form of a childish attack. You don't have a brain, so you dismiss everything that goes against your false paradigm.

10:28 = 3rd string amateur comment and attitude. Train your brain, and then come back with something better.

11:06 = Hillbilly 101; can't begin to understand reality, so he sits in the stands watching staged "pro-wrestling" matches and looking at the pictures in his comic books.

5:16 = Who used the chemical weapons? Think! Years ago, when they tried to manipulate Obama into invading Syria, they pulled the exact same "gassing children" fake story. Syria got rid of all chemicals deemed dangerous by the West. We later learned that anti-Assad rebels were the ones using poison gas.

7:48 = blind partisanship is no valid reason to risk war. I can tell you hated Obama, well so did I. And Hillary Clinton should be in jail. You bash the liberal media, but when they spread fake news about "evil Assad" you believe them. Assad knows the West has been gunning for him for years now, why would he do something to give them an excuse to finally take him out? Where's your evidence that Assad used gas? If you don't think this is largely about energy policy, you're ignorant. They want you to wave the flag, chant U.S.A., and pay more taxes to kill more innocent people in the world.

Syria has to go down so the Saudi pipeline can run thru Turkey to Europe.

Kraske continues as jock-sniffer to political elites to maintain his status among them. Eventually, his usefulness to them will end.
