Tracy Seyz KCI Is Moving To JoCo?!?!

From our favorite lady blogging in the Golden Ghetto, an interesting theory on the fate of the new airport and the future of Kansas City's rich neighbors to the West:

Southwest Airlines' Plan B: leave KCI, and build new terminal in Gardner Ks! Financed with local Airport Revenue Bonds

Behind the scenes, Southwest Airlines may pull a Love Field strategy in metro KC. Land their planes in Johnson County, and forget all about MCI in KCMO. (Southwest does not fly out of Dallas/Ft Worth's "main" airport, they have Love Field. Nor do they fly out of O'Hare in Chicago.

Actually, I only said Southwest Airlines would move to Joco. That's just about half the gates! The other airlines, including United that drags Asians off planes, and just this week, stole a paid seat from a 2 pound Asian baby, and gave it to a white dude, making the schoolteacher mother hold her squirming infant for two hours on her lap--well, United and Delta can stay at KCI!

Ant gonna happen. Love Field and Midway were existing underutilized airports in a much different airline business environment.

No way SW is going to foot the bill for a new airport in JoCo, so quitting trying to con people!!

I hope they do leave MCI.

KC aint nothing but a money suck for rich people that live elsewhere. Let it move to where they have to pay for it.

My name is Tracy and I like to post conjecture like it is news. I'm also a fucking idiot.

Appropriate that it is linked on tkc.

There is not one ounce of anything even close to a fact in Tracy's post... complete waste of time.

Well, this is news...the folks who work for Sly James and the KCI Gang, as well as Burns & Mac have logged in after hours for a change--they will be billing the city or Burns Mac for overtime...

Tracy, are you wearing a garter belt and hose?

No, she is wearing Depends.

Well, it all depends, but never Depends!

Back on topic, trolls!

Never underestimate just how badly Sam Brownback wants to recruit business to Kansas and OUT of Missouri! The legislature would give away the farm and STAR bonds and who knows what else--to pull that off.

5:16, think of Gardner as just raw ground. "If you build it they will come."

The flying public that uses Southwest as a cheap shuttle to nearby cities does not like driving to KCI. Seventy-five percent of the passengers at KCI live in Joco or at least, NOT in KCMO proper.

So yes, maybe it's time to pony up and pay to build an "attraction" that Kansans pay for and use. You can keep paying for the stadiums and the art gallery.

And we won't over-reach and tack on the misnomer "International". Time to get egos out of the way, and build a transportation terminal that is not a secret slush fund for Michael Merriman/Americo Insurance, the silent partner of Burns & Mac.

Follow the money, honey. Sly James's cash grab for his buddies is coming to an end. Stranger things have happened than a business like Southwest doing what is right for THEIR corporate interests.
