Kansas City New Airport Conversation: NO-BID Paid Cheerleaders Vs. Community



Here's the round-up of an airport talk wherein most of the important questions about alternative plans and  THE CORRUPT NO-BID PROCESS were unanswered and a litany of suits looking to get paid seemed to dominate the conversation.

Check a bit of perspective from the comments that offers a ground-level view of the event . ..

"We attended the airport meeting at the Marriott. It was interesting in that at least 7 speakers were there to advocate for their business and/or unions. Of course they were for the single terminal. About 16 speakers were for the deal and 13 or so were against it. One speaker identified herself as a JoCo resident who was embarrassed by her airport. She thought Indianapolis had a much better set-up. We silently urged her to go there - ha ha.

"One speaker asked about alternative ideas - where were they? No answer from the Council or the panel of B&M suits. The usual song & dance with claims that the airlines would pay for the new airport - definitely NOT true."

There's one more conversation on this subject as THE MAYOR AND HIS SUPPORTERS HOPE TO PASS THIS EFFORT WITHOUT THE LEGAL REVIEW COUNCIL PROMISED . . .

New airport........BWAAAAAAAAAAA.

Doesn't that lil hottie, former City Council fox work at B&M these days. Hmmmmmm...looks like more of the Killa City "grifters" at the trough.

Looks like the worthless fuck 6th District grifter, Sam Graves rolled over yesterday and NOW supports the "One Terminal". Wonder how much B&M paid that babbling asshole ?

One Terminal is needed like a boil on your ass.

Just keep one very basic fact in mind, and you'll never be surprised at how these things work with KCMO government.
The city government is merely a tax collector that puts hundreds of millions of your dollars into a big pot, which is then dolloped out to insiders, any developer with a pulse, grifters, hangers-on, campaign contributors, out-of-town professors, urban futurists, consultants, and anyone else who can afford to spend lots of time on the 22nd and 29th floors of city hall.
Which is pretty much any resident or business owner with a full-time job and a life.
So as long as KCMO residents understand that they are merely donors for others with big dreams and who would rather use and risk YOUR money instead of their own, you'll easily be able to predict how the clowns you regularly elect and re-elect will work to represent your best interests.
They won't.
Thanks for playing.
