TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! REJECTING THE KANSAS CITY CONFEDERATE DISTRACTION!!!



It turns out the d-bag who organized a deadly, stupid and divisive white supremacist rally in Charlottesville actually voted and campaigned for President Obama . . . While this doesn't prove any of the conspiracy theory wack-job claims about the intent of a divisive fatal confrontation that's ripping the nation apart - IT DOES remind us that practitioners of identity politics "on all sides" (to quote our sleazebag Prez) are mostly unstable and unproductive.

Meanwhile in Kansas City . . .

- An international corporation threatens to loot airport revenue and destroy one of this town's vital resources with the help of the Mayor and a lawyer on the council who claims she's a champion of social justice.

- The rate of KCMO murder has spiked more than 30% over last year as the killing pushes toward the century mark at a historically early point on the calendar.

- Streetcar supporters have straight up rejected and defied the outcome of a CITYWIDE vote and push their agenda by way of subverting Democracy through gerrymandering and voter suppression.

- Entertainment districts downtown and on the Eastside grow increasingly violent and drain City Hall finances while neighborhoods struggle to garner resources. Also, flood control in KCMO is a bad joke.

- With nothing more than some drawings and a smile, developers have garnered $35-MILLION worth of up front financing from City Hall and HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS in tax breaks promised for a hotel that doesn't yet have the financial support it desperately needs outside of 12th & Oak.

And so . . .

Kansas City confronts all these problems and more that are mostly under the radar or ignored by "activists" yet we're supposed to believe that some mostly ignored and forgotten monument is the biggest problem in Kansas City???

Here at TKC we don't tell people what to do or how to think . . . Do what you want. We can only hope that locals who fight against the ghosts of the Confederacy also acknowledge the very REAL problems Kansas City confronts in the here and now.

And all this has inspired our old school Southern Rock playlist tonight . . .



As always thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night . . .

Don't know if Kid Rock qualifies as Southern rock but some of the other selections are nice.

Yep the protesters"are mostly unstable and unproductive." Concise accurate and correct. You have a way with words Tony.

Tony those "very real" problems will never be solved. Now the question you should be asking, is, does anybody really want to.
Or are they solvable at all?
I've never believed the idea that democrats keep minorities addicted to government in exchange for they're votes, mainly because I've seen Hispanics come here and do well
So that leaves the idea that city politicians are so incompetent that they really have no ideas at all

Every mayor since the cleave, has left town leaving behind a legacy of corruption, destruction, blight, broken everything and high taxes, sure why not raise taxes and spend your money on shiny toys, I won't be around, you suckers get to pay for my legacy not me!

Hey McFly Tony - these fringe Confederate nutjobs have been having their little marches for years and no one ever paid any attention to them, even under the 8 years of Obama.

Who were the organizers and members of "Take It Down KC" anyway?

Three rich hater jerks from the suburbs who talked (or bribed) a Black Preacher into calling out his handy "Rent-A-Mob"?

Looks like the crap-filled donut that used to be Kansas City is spewing its muck into the Suburban Ring faster and faster, doesn't it?
