NEWSFLASH!!! CORPORATE FREEBIES DON'T CREATE KANSAS CITY JOBS!!!

Research and data disputes a common misconception at 12th & Oak which has nearly bankrupted this town and caused neglect for every area outside of the loop. Take a look:

TIF Doesn't Create Jobs

Paul F. Byrne, a professor at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas-who has examined tax increment financing (TIF) use in Missouri for the Show-Me Institute-has a new working paper on TIF job creation in Missouri. In the paper, Byrne examined data from the Missouri Department of Revenue and the U.S.

It's not entirely true that TIFs don't create any jobs.
Actually, the development lawyers, bond attorneys, land flippers, and all the other transactional players who cash in big time before the first spade of dirt is turned are doing just fine, thanks.
And they really don't care if what's built is financially sustainable or not.
Regardless of how poorly a "project" does, or even if it stands empty and falling apart, these folks are long gone and the eyesore becomes the neighborhood's problem.
Great jobs created at public expense.
Just not yours.

Would Patrick Tuohey PLEASE run for KCMO Mayor?!?

Can you even begin to imagine the positive changes that would result if someone like Tuohey was leading this city?

He can’t run because he has ethics

Jolie Justus is running and she eats a lot of pussy

Ms. Justus' sexual activities are completely irrelevant,@ 9:11!
And in addition, they're pretty damn insulting!
Surely you've seen Ms. Justus' picture, why are you demeaning all the Lesbians in Kansas City by implying that any of them would have anything at all to do with a hag that looks like that?

6:22 AM is right!!! Ugly ass lezbos don't count! We need more good looking lipstick lezzie like Portia de Rossi to show their faces around town. Bisexual hot chicks as well. No one in their right mind wants to see an ugly ass skank, whether they are straight or a dyke.

It is also a scientific fact lib chicks are predominantly ugly as well.
