TKC BLOG COMMUNITY HAPPY BIRTHDAY SPOILER FOR THE CORRUPT KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR RIPOFF!!!



Today Kansas City politicos, consultants and their clueless acolytes will present the illusion of public support for one of the most controversial and corrupt development schemes this town has ever witnessed.

To wit . . .

THE KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY IS TAINTED BY A DESPICABLE ASSAULT ON LOCAL DEMOCRACY AND WIDESPREAD CORPORATE TAX BREAK LOOTING BY THE GREEDY CIVIC ELITE!!!

Still, we don't want to be a total spoilsport so here's a look at today's party deets:



Now some fact checking that conflicted local MSM won't bother to report:

- The secret TDD ballots to establish and now extend the streetcar represent one of the most dangerous assaults on local Democracy that this town has seen in years and pave the way to even more voter suppression down the line given that whenever there's a real vote, Kansas City has REJECTED the toy train . . . So these rigged elections of only a few hundred people are devised to create the illusion of compliance.

- The TWO-MILLION passenger count and ridership stats are just as phony and FAKE as Kansas City's 25 million tourist chest thumping. Our TKC Blog Community has constantly chronicled how bigger and better cities mysteriously fall behind KCMO's tiny line with DOCUMENTATION AND EVIDENCE while streetcar loyalists rely on their garbage numbers with no independent verification.

- The so-called development along the streetcar line is ALMOST COMPLETELY SUBSIDIZED BY TAX BREAKS. Corporate welfare for lawyers, political cronies and local power players is the top concern for the line and not all of those rapidly aging hipsters they trot out to spread their hype about the creative class or whatever.

Moreover, one of the most annoying aspects of all this hype is an assault on the sensibilities and trust of Kansas City residents...

MOST OF THE BIGGEST TOY TRAIN STREETCAR SUPPORTERS ARE ON THE PAYROLL AS CONSULTANTS!!!

Midwestern folk don't like questioning people's motives and so this fake advocacy is now a hallmark of Mayor Sly's administration which is why these dweebs get so angry and hurt in the comments as political operatives in their late 30s bragging about "youth" and "generational change" is kinda desperate.

Nevertheless . . .



The party continues . . .

Our blog community advocates for more equitable distribution of transit resources across Kansas City and tech innovation that will connect the East Side, urban core and the Northland with all of KCMO and beyond. . . Meanwhile so many greedy and despicable consultants seem only to be worried about delivering more people to a fading luxury shopping district. Get it straight: The hipster "good guys" are nothing more than looters with good style ready to use any rhetorical tactic at their disposal in order to keep their checks coming.

Sadly, residents can't weigh in on the fate of this scam because most voters have been cut out of the process whilst, today, a bunch of fools, thieves and politicians celebrate one of the most corrupt anniversaries in Kansas City history.

the streetcar can be a force for good. We just need to do it right. The plaza line is too short sighted. Take it to 18th and vine and across the river to get some REAL transportation going.

Midtown is great but there is a dearth of transportation options there. We need to bring the streetcar to build greater accessibility. that should be the priority.

Well said tony well said. TKC is the only real journalist in the entire fucking city.

Start charging or scrap the project. Why should people get to ride for free?

You're just pissed Tony because no one gives a shit about what you think. Stick to posting titty pics, which is the best part of this blog. Otherwise, you just look like an ass clown like that phot of Yael holding a gun.

^^^ Is that why you're here first thing on a Saturday morning. Because you don't care about Tony??? Keep repeating that and coming back for more. Or not.

We can make the streetcar better and this is just the second part of it. We will support better transit all across KC Mo and the bus extensions are part of the streetcar extension too. Remember that this is a process what this streetcar is about is making Kansas City best. It shouldn't be so hard to believe that we are beating bigger cities. That's what we do regularly.

The StreetCar is also subsidized by an 11%+ sales tax downtown. Completely unstustainable esp. during the next economic downturn.

@8:14am
Most residents of bigger cities in the country don't even know where KC is. In fact, they think it's in Kansas.
And as for the invitation to the taxpayer-funded party (does KCMO do anything at all that the taxpayers don't pick up the tab for?) I feel certain that there will be way more than just one clown in attendance.
Grandiosity and delusion on the plains.

Who is backing up the bonds? The city or the TDD? If it's the TDD what's the collateral? Your house? Not a chance. The city will back them up so we all pay when revenue falls short. Just like the fucking Power and Light.

I'd like to see the TDD issue the bonds. At what interest rate will the market demand? HA HA HA HA

A better title "The Worlds Most Expensive Amusement Ride". KC is all hype and PR. What the world knows about KC is the movie Divided City. KC is all about the past glory of streetcars and hotel conventions.

I have to laugh. The Kansas Shitty Star uses the same photo from the day the streetcar started in all their articles. You can't miss Slier right in the middle of the photograph. He is surrounded by city employees who were paid to attend the opening ceremony!

People in Kansas City are so stupid when it comes to mass transit. They act like there's been no transportation until the streetcar arrived. They're clueless that a Max bus can take them from city market to Waldo for only a $1.50. And they also say the streetcar should go north across the river or out to Lenexa. That's not a streetcar, idiots. That would be light rail. The streetcar is just a slow moving bus on rails for white people who don't want to ride a bus and it's not mass transit.

Playing at make-believe being a BIG TIME City by endlessly celebrating a two-mile streetcar line and constantly repeating ridership and tourist numbers that are laughable and embarrassing.
Wonder if actual cities like New York are as ga ga over their subway system.
Or do the residents there just use it to actually get from one place to another?
Amateur night on the plains.

Hello, Am Josh 34 yrs old, i had penis issues regarding the size of my penis, just some weeks ago i measured just about 6.4 cm (2.5 inches) when flaccid and 10.3 cm (4.1 inches) when fully erect. When i was a teen i thought it was normal but i came to find out when i became an adult that i was really lacking behind. I couldn't satisfy a real lady in bed and the worse of my problems was that i cum on the sight of a ladies vagina. I battled this problems since i was teen and still couldn't get any good victory. I was online searching for guaranteed results providing products to enlarge the size of my penis when i saw a review of Dr James Penis Enlargement Skills posted by one Mr Santiago Matias, i read through the comment and emailed the contact enlargementherbs@yahoo.com The doctor called me some few moments later and attended to me more better than i expected. I was convinced and i made purchase of his herbal medicines for Penis Enlargement and Quick Ejaculation. The medicines was sent to me and i received it at my home, i applied it as instructed and just few weeks of using the herbal medicines i got a perfect good size of penis. I now measure about 18.0 cm (7.4 inches) when flaccid and 23.3 cm (9.1 inches) when erect. Am so happy and comfortable with the new size of my penis, i feel no discomfort or whatever.

We need to hurry and get some more Toot toot. If we wait even a year we will find out that the self driving Taxi companies will be here in mass and we will not even be able to convince the cool fern bar hipsters to vote for a new Toot Toot. I have heard several of the old Toot Toot cheer leaders are already starting to question the validity of a vibrant city of a FIRST CLASS nature that has dinosaur streetcars holding up traffic .

Hello Josh have you heard about negroes and how they should be exterminated?
