Kansas City to consider outsourcing animal control division with KC Pet Project

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- At a Wednesday meeting, Kansas City council members plan to discuss the feasibility of outsourcing the responsibilities of the city's animal control division to the KC Pet Project. This summer, an internal audit highlighted a lack of oversight and organization within the Animal Health and Public Safety division.

We can’t even run a dog pound. No wonder the jail is such a failure.

Maybe we should outsource the cops, too.

Oh wait ... the state government runs the police department. Guess we already have. (Actually, they took it away from us because we were such a bunch of crooks.)

Can we outsource the city council and the Jackson County government?

Please. Can we also outsource everyone over 65 years of age? That would be a tremendous boost to the city and country as a whole.

The voters of this City tried to "outsource" Mayoral and Council malfeasance by adopting a "City Manager" form of government. But unfortunately that method only works when a strong Manager is in that position and they and the Mayor and all the Councilpersons understand their roles.

When the elected Officials only see their positions as a means of enriching themselves and advancing their own political ambitions, and the Manager is reduced to nothing more than a lapdog for their various agendas, the system fails to function.

The last four City Administrations have illustrated the existence of this state of affairs, with the City Government being turned into nothing more than a device for diverting tax revenues into the hands, or rather pockets, of Real Estate Developers and Construction Mega-Companies.

Unlike what is referred to as the "Pendergast Era", the Officeholders in City Government no longer feel that they have to even make the gesture of providing services to the City's residents, but instead sit in their Olympian Heights (or more accurately Olympian Squalor) and use the subservient media as their messengers to the "Lesser People" they claim to serve.

It is only when one of them does manage to reach the higher levels of political existence and moves off to "Oz On The Potomac" as one of our Mayors has done, that they are suddenly slapped in the face with reality, and become aware that they have gone from being a "Big Frog in a Small Puddle" to being a "Tiny Tadpole in a Large Pool of Hungry Sharks", and have to return here to have their totally ignored asses kissed.

Perhaps the answer might be a one term limit on service in any City Government position, with a prohibition against ever serving in any such capacity in the future. Such a limit probably could not be enacted, or withstand legal challenge, but the Voters of this City could certainly impose it!

These guys who "hate" older people (65 & older) obviously don't realize that time is ticking for them as well. Unless they plan on living forever, their other option is to off themselves before any wrinkles show up. I know which one I'm voting for.
