Downtown Kansas City Convention Hotel Fights Against Direct Democracy

Here's more insight and reporting on the effort to legislate against voters and silence in the name of a sketchy insider deal that has mostly been rejected by investors. Take a look:

'They screwed up:' Ordinance may correct error, make hotel petition-proof - Kansas City Business Journal

The leader of a group that has mounted a referendum petition drive seeking a public vote on the 800-room Hyatt Regency said it was given the opening to do so by a City Council mistake.

Those 800 rooms will only be filled a dozen times a year. The outher hotel's SALES AND MARKETING DEPARTMENT WILL GIVE THEM A RUN FOR THEIR MONEY IT WILL BE EASY TO UNDER,CUT,BOOKING AND SMALLER CONVENTIONS. THEY WILL BE BURNING CASH AND THE TAX PAYERS WILL PICK UP THE BILL.

Good to know, thank you Retro Rocker.

However, if Sarah Palin can see China from her back deck, surely with night vision goggles, guests at Mikey's Motel can see the Plaza lighting ceremony? The taxpayers could build a gigantic reflecting screen and it could bounce the images from the Nichols Fountain to downtown. Kinda like Ronald Reagan's plan to block missiles. This could really put KC on the map. Just look out your hotel room window to see if there are any gangs marauding on the Plaza before jumping onboard the toy train to terror...

You're all jacked up Thomas. It was Tina Fey joking (not factually) that Sarah Palin could see Russia from her house. And Reagan's plan to block missiles was shown last week to work pretty well. Stick with the KC shit that you halfway know.

You're right. I needed a nap.
