KANSAS CITY ACTIVISTS AGAINST PREZ TRUMP, TERROR AND CLIMATE CHANGE LOSING SIGHT OF LOCAL THREATS???



Let's start this week with just a bit of perspective before we really get into it.

To wit . . .

HAS MEDIA BOTH SOCIAL AND MAINSTREAM BLINDED KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS TO LOCAL THREATS THIS SUMMER???

A few examples to prove our point . . .

Despite International Terror Scares, Kansas City Residents Are Much More Likely To Fall Victim To Street Crime


Recent terrorist attacks in Great Britain have shocked the world and elicited local signs of support but closer to home Kansas City residents are much more likely to be the victim of a home burglary, shooting or violent attack by so many crackheads wandering about than encounter ISIS attacks.

It's great to care about the global fight for freedom but the reality is that many denizens don't feel safe enough to leave their homes after dark.

Amid Global Climate Change Debate, Kansas City Residents Are Much More Likely To Be Burned By Higher Taxes


The world and Al Gore are still going after Prez Trump for his controversial Paris pullout . . . That's great but closer to home there's a rising tide of taxes, fees and levies drowning local homeowners at a pace far quicker than the threats to the polar bears and penguins. Water rates are doubling every five years and gentrification is pushing many urban core denizens out of their homes. Meanwhile, so-called KCMO "progressives" quickly turn exceptionally conservative and big biz friendly when it comes to supplying tax breaks and corporate welfare in a manner that's cuts funds from schools, libraries and neighborhoods. The reality that local media always neglects is that supply-side economic incentive schemes have impacted and dominated both Kansas and KCMO local government.

Translation:

In terms of economic policy, Mayor Sly is really just Gov. Sam Brownback in a bow tie. 

Finally . . .

Arguments About Immigration Overlook Ongoing Kansas City Mexican Crackdown


Cruel reality is that Prez Trump's wall has more support than most progressives want to admit even thought it mostly exists in their imagination.

More to the point, despite local liberal hope to stand up for International human rights and Muslims during Ramadan . . . Local Mexicans continue to get rounded up and/or get a lot better at hiding and doing menial, clandestine, low-paying cash work that powers the local economy.

To be fair, we know a lot of Democratic Party insiders who realize the local immigration struggle happens at bus stops and not with a bullhorn at the airport leading a protest. Still, it's important to remember that immigration drama is part of every day life in Kansas City and not just a neat Anderson Cooper segment . . .

And so . . . The struggle against crime, higher taxes and the fight for social justice continues in local neighborhoods and not just by way of DNC talking points among the chattering class.



Moreover, this post is merely a reminder that Kansas City has far more pressing problems to "resist" that don't have much at all to do with beltway politics that dominate the discourse but seldom relate directly back to local life.

These self-appointed and already totally irrelevant "activists" are just taking a tip from Jackson County and KCMO electeds.
Seriously addressing issues like how a jail is managed, what can be done to reduce violence and homicides, implementing a plan to maintain streets and bridges, managing a vital utility like water or sewer services so that costs to residents can be kept at a reasonable level, and so many other local issues that are important to the people who actually live here takes lots of hard work, learning enough about complex issues to be able to develop policies and programs to improve results, and strong oversight, management, and accountability to get what you expected.
No bullhorns, selfies, or tv time.
No pie-in-the-sky promises.
No blaming someone else far away for your problems.
No ME! ME! ME!
The "activists" have no responsibilities for anything, so their lack of knowledge and proposals make no real difference.
The same can't be said for the folks at the Jackson County Courthouse and at city hall.
Lots of self-appointed celebrity wannabe ringmasters, but really poor acts in this local circus.

No amount of conversation concerning national issues, will distract the attention of locals, when it comes to safety.

You can have conversations about Trump and brain dead Progressives and still keep an eye out for dangerous black people.

The dummocrats and libtards are still in disbelief over the Don beating billary out of the Oval Office. They still can't believe or except the fact that the majority of the citizens of this fine country didn't want her or their beliefs in Washington anymore. It's 8 months later folks..... get over your selves! Either get onboard or get the hell out

What they need to do is crackdown on the Construction companies that are hiring the illegal's and make them pay! They are the one's that are taking away jobs from americans not the Illegal's.

But I am too busy trying to decide which bathroom a transgender must use?

Climate Change...used to call it Global Warming and back in the 70's it was going to be a New Ice Age...is just the new RED SCARE.

Then, as now, if you questioned it you were not a patriot.

Its all a scam to get more control.

It's business as usual at KCPD.

Losing sight of local threats? For example, this out of control murder rate? Has Sly Ever adressed this as a problem. I can't remember when or if he did. I would think it might need some attention rahter than just forming a bunch of worthless anti-crime committees, etc. It seems as if Sly doesn't care much about it.

Sly and the KCMO council are as adept at directing attention away from the REAL problems as Trump is. And that's really sayin' somethin!

Tony, I love your ibservation that Sly is Brownback in a bow tie.

Anonymous said...

Those regressive tax policies are not Sly's but KC dummocrats, Jolie Justus, Scott Taylor, K. Shields, K. McManus to name a few.

Tracy Thomas said...

Oh, look! 10:25, Chris Hernandez and Steve Glorioso have learned how to use their cell phones rather than the City Hall phones, to deflect attention away from Sly!!!

^^^^ She's just pissed 'cause Trump rejected her advances.

I support KC.

But I am mindful of what going on in the world. You can't bury your head in the sand!

Tracy Thomas said...

We have sand???
Where--oh yeah, Berkley Park, south side of the river,
where one cannot put a boat into the Missouri,
but Sly wants to use tax dollars to subsidize yet another developer buddy, and expand the trolley there as well!!!

Anonymous said...

They need to park the trolley in the river and report it stolen. As long as some psychic doesn't tell them, KCPD will never find it. Collect the insurance money and forget about it.

Sure, ^^ 8:43. We're gonna need very many construction workers for millions of safe, single tranny toilets to be installed in our schools, libraries, military bases, and such. That Barry BathHouse crap is bigly indecent, and Great Americans decided already that children, especially while away from their parents, ain't doing sex ed in the potties, showers and locker rooms!!!

Hey 7:32Am-I know you are a repubtard shit-flake, so facts don't exist in your world. Let me hit you with a fact you lied about in your previous post. You oh so very ignorantly and somewhat arrogantly proclaimed that " the fact that the majority of the citizens of this fine country didn't want her or their beliefs in Washington anymore", but you failed to mention that the majority of voters in this fine country voted against the big orange idiot and voted for Hillary. So your entire preface is another lie propagated by brain-dead conservatives to shift a narrative that doesn't exist. I know it doesn't seem like it on this little blog, because on here, you have the same dozen people who comment on every post-multiple times; but the country does not share your opinion on politics. You dumb-ass are in the minority.

Gobble up that Granny Gangsta ass all ya want. Fake news, fake polls, and FUBAR'd more than four decades of Clintoon criminality cost CANKLES those ACTUAL votes. Yeah, vote counts for the Sniper Fire Liar/Bad Billy Enabler/Victims Shamer/Benghazi Butcher/Uranium Ripoff/Haiti Relief Embezzler/Bernie Robber were manipulated like her Sloppy Server emails...instead of disappearing though, the votes from the dead/duplicate registries/undocumenteds/and probably those Putin poltergeists Hilly talks of... magically appeared.

Once again, the left forgets eighth grade civics and the basics of voter distribution in the last election. Short version: we use the electoral college and not popular vote; oddly enough no lefties had an issue with this when it was ol'Bill in the same situation.

Virtually none outside a few major urban centers voted for Hillary. That's because you didn't, and you still don't, have the slightest idea how to talk to people who disagree with you.

Now, even the left is begging Hillary to shut up already. At least by this behavior Hillary has definitely put to rest any notion of a comeback. Off she goes into the night of history, bitching and blaming every step of the way. Very sweet really. ;)

Hey 5:02 I know you are a repubtard shit-flake so you can't read and comprehend. Let me lay some truth on your ignorant ass like I did the other shit-eating moron before you. Nobody said shit about the electoral college! We all know how the thing works dummy, so you can save all that self-serving shit about civics lessons. I simply laid a hard & cold truth down. One that cannot be dispelled by talking monkeys like yourself. That fact is this: more people voted against orange idiot, and more people voted for Hillary. That's it Einstein. Maybe try to think things through before you respond. Got it simp? No get your geriatric ass back to Matlock!

Yep, there are dumb-ass people for sure. Proof of that is right here on TKC with a butt-hurt sore loser who thinks repeatedly proclaiming Hilly's vote counts matters to anyone. He hates older adults, and likes talking about poopy pants. It's probably just Billy Jeff or Carlos Danger, who prefer hanging with playpals who are MUCH younger...one, with minors at his convicted pedo pal's island... the other, on his "not being so smart" phone texting his junk!!!
