EL SOL NEGRO: KANSAS CITY AND THE NATION CONFRONT INEVITABLE CHANGE AMID TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE!!!



There's a ton of great conspiracy theories about the end of the world today . . .

White guys without self-confidence have recently taken to the streets in fear over the so-called "darkening of America" and that's exactly what's going to happen today.

Moreover, the Aztecs predicted all of this long ago as part of their Five Suns creation myth which foretold thee destruction and resurrection of their civilization . . . i.e. Reconquista.

Before we discount star signs . . . Let's not forget that the Lord and Savior of most Americans had his virgin birth touted by signals from the heavens.

Either way, everyone is attempting to derive some form of meaning from today's eclipse . . . And "El Sol Negro" sounds much nicer than all of the science most people don't understand about today's Sun worship festivities.

Still, what always matters most is the story that people take away . . . And so we ask our blog community:

HOW WILL TODAY'S ECLIPSE CHANGE KANSAS CITY AND THE NATION???

Some are hoping for unity in the midst of the Universe in motion and with the humble recognition of our insignificance in the grand scheme of things. Meanwhile, factions "from all sides" tout the dawn of a new era which will bring fourth their rise to power. I suppose most people will just be working their dead end jobs and take a few moments to look toward the sky before their bosses demand their heads are pushed back down toward their toil.

Today I'm honestly curious about how Kansas City and the world view the eclipse when they're not trying to impress frenemies and strangers on social media.

If the world does or doesn't end we sincerely hope to see you d-bags on the other side of the eclipse . . .



Either way, it has been such great fun to play a very small part in a civilization that learned to harness the power of the Sun and then used it to kill and terrify one another.

I take it somebody didn't get invited to an eclipse BBQ. Buck up, there's also 2024. Hillary might finally be President by then.

No worries.
Even if the fat little tub-a-lard tried to reach the nuclear button by stacking phone books- he will still be to short. And no doubt a virus more potent than Stuttgart will implode the little weasel to smithereens. He will be "trumped".
Enjoy one of many "once in a lifetime" events and if you miss it there is another in Missouri in 2024.
And if you like "once-in-a-lifetime" events, there will be a 3rd flood tonight and tomorrow- so grab your river raft and head for Southwest Boulevard and watch the fun begin. Hey- some day money will be re-allocated from the Toy Train of Sly's or money to study the Non-existent airport problem and solve real stuff like flooding on Southwest Boulevard.
Enjoy the day KC... your Royals are about to make the mad dash to the Playoffs!

At the rate KCMO is going down the tubes with incompetent and corrupt government, horrendous crime and violence, silly marches and protests, and upside-down spending of tax money, it's likely the moon will blot out the sun and stay there.
Great news for KCPL stock!
Just a little self-absorbed amateur cow town.
Any exciting new articles on the Huffington Post?
Hahahahahaha!!!

Good time to run some errands and get things done while the stores and streets are empty.

In ancient times, the population would bang on pots and pans to scare away the eclipse demon, who was thought to be there to devour the sun. Have we really progressed much further? When you go out to observe the eclipse, along with your eclipse glasses, take something to make some noise. Hey, it can't hurt, and it might keep the savages from sacrificing monuments and statues.

Better hope the Aztecs were wrong. They make the Confederates look like choir boys. So warlike and brutal were they that neighboring tribes were more than happy to help the Conquistadors take them down.

If anyone misses the eclipse I will be on top of the AT&T building at 7:30 PM mooning protesters. Hell, it isn't like they will be able to tell the difference.

Actually the Aztecs were right, it was the end of the World... THEIR WORLD!

Why don't all the Hispanic Groups calling for "Reconquista" of lands they stole from the Dine People ever mention the YAQUI GENOCIDE the Mexican Government carried out in 1910-29? Why don't they protest the on-going GENOCIDE being carried out for 23 years in Chiapas against EZLN supporters? Why don't they discuss the fact that the core issue of Cesar Chavez's "La Raza" Movement was opposition to Illegal Emigrants stealing jobs from Mexican-American Citizens and Legal Residents?

Of course I know the answer, ALL MINORITIES ALWAYS PLAY THE "VICTIM" CARD! Well, haha, now the Right Wingnuts are playing "Victim" too, so how do ya like them Apples?

IN OTHE WORDS, WE'RE ALL VICTIMS, SO EVERYBODT SHUT THEHELL UP!!

The eclipse doesn't "mean" anything.

It just is.
