TKC QUESTION: WHILST FREEZING DRIZZLE PANICS COMMUTERS, HAS KANSAS CITY FAILED THIS WINTER??? CRAIG GLAZER BLAMES LOCAL WEATHER FAKE NEWS!!!



Now in the winter of our discontent we cope with local government, media and many institutions struggling to survive in the cold.

The toy train streetcar is back up and running after going down for nearly two days during a mild ice storm. Never-mind that the bus proved to be the real workhorse for downtown commuters amid typically inclement weather.

Meanwhile, here's a complaint echoed by many local neighborhoods during this week's winter blast . . .

Fox4: Neighbors fed up when untreated road leads to numerous crashes

And all of this leads us to a moment of cold deliberation . . .

HAS KANSAS CITY FAILED THIS WINTER??? IS THIS TOWN LOSING THE ABILITY TO WORK IN AVERAGE COLD WEATHER???

Of course we want to share all perspectives on this issue and RIGHT NOW OUR PAL CRAIG GLAZER PENS ON EPIC HOT TAKE ON THIS KANSAS CITY WINTER . . .

Take a look:

Craig Glazer: More Fake Weather Reports Becoming A Financial City Disaster!



They did it again! More media b.s. on ice and snow storms close our city all week, AGAIN! Something needs to be done on this continued closing of Kansas City by extremely poor news casts all day and night on ice and snow storms that never happen or are at worst just minor and far from reason to shut down our businesses and schools! It needs to stop. Action by local businessmen and city leaders need to make them stop it.

Lets face it this 'ain't' Miami. However look at our bad weather calls for the last five years, total lies. Almost no major snow or ice EVER. Yes there have been some light snows and even some cold rain that freezes up a bit early in the morning or in the middle of the night, but very few maybe 10% of what is predicted at best. This past week is a great example of the media for lack of a better word, 'lying' or misleading our city with CLOSE IT DOWN mentality, all really just to get ratings and 'NOT PROTECT US' at all. One would think with their horrid record of predictions, like mine sometimes in football, they'd cut it out. Nope it gets worse.

Media called for school closings for no reason all week, there was NEVER that kind of bad weather at all. Streets on Monday were a bit slick early, just a bit but not as the day rolled on. Last night we watched the t.v. news to see their explanation of the 'ice storm' coming at 8pm, never did and getting worse all night, so nobody left home except for emergencies I suppose. Reality was no rain til maybe 10pm for a bit and little to no ice on streets that I could see, I drove in it no big deal.

Our economy can't afford this malarkey. Business closes early for the fake bad weather, stores and malls are empty, nobody goes to events that have been scheduled for weeks and months. It is just unfair and costly. Can't they say 'might happen' or be careful when you drive we aren't sure but maybe....by now that seems fair huh.

Kansas City has become one of the nations milder winter areas located in the Midwest. Yes it gets cold and dreary, but remember when you were a kid, this is nothing compared to what was needed to close schools in the 60's-90's, nothing. Hey the east cost would love our winters right?

Well the good news is winter is about over...but oh no now comes 'fake' tornado warnings...boy we sure have had lots of them destroy our Plaza the last many years! Uh, none.

Please weather stations STOP IT!

Nice work Craig.

A lot of us are just like you. Got things done this morning and did our work while ignoring panic from the meteorologists.

Jameson said...

Biggest loser in all of this is the streetcar. The shut down was unacceptable. The bus works just fine. Why do we want to keep building a form of "transit" that breaks down so often?

Anonymous said...

^^^ because there's money for developers and lawyers, of course.

KC is moving along fine, we would be doing better without the Johnson County drivers. They're used to wide streets and open lanes, they CANNOT drive in the winter and most of the accidents around Midtown are their fault.

SnoJo said...

^^ Absolute B.S. KC drivers are the worst. Always speeding, dangerous and uninsured.

I’d say slow and passive drivers but still shit

Massive rainstorms and hail coming on Friday and Saturday nites ..

good time to stay off the roads, and not get in the way of first-responders... just chill and catch up on your Netflix

Craig, the weather is pretty bad. The weather news was RIGHT about this one.

More like fake Sly James the incompetent mayor who wants to pocket money instead of cleaning off the streets.

I watched the weather and they were exactly right on everything this time.

It was pretty slick in spots, but I guess it is sunny on Planet Botello, speaking of lies.

1000 points for Glazer on this one!

He finally got something right!

The biggest media fol this morning was Channel 5. Channels 9 and 41 went to their network morning shows @ 7:00 and the weather was being covered on their subchannels 5 & 8 but they kept their local news on until 9:00 and preempted CBS This Morning which beats the heal out of watching the Today Show and GMA.because they deal in all news and not cooking outside audiences concerts etc. etc. and their two recent intern anchor blabbers are TERRIBLE. No wonder their local morning news ratings are in the septic tank. If they think Erin Andrews doing weather starting next week is gonna' boost their ratings they're nuts. The only weather person that called it right last night early was Mike Thompson on Channel 4.

the Real eastside got ignored by the city two days in a row, it’s like management at public works dropped the ball again, unless sLIE and Troy are trying to save money for pet projects, makes you wonder.

It was really bad over by the old blue ridge mall yesterday, not a truck to be found salting any roads. Today was no different, no trucks any where, the only good news was it wasn’t as bad as yesterday, my guess is it wasn’t bad where ever the public works management lives so they didn’t do anything. There was a huge difference on the Real east side compared to the hood where I drive through everyday.

Glazer just won't own up to the fact he has a shitty business that very few care to support. So he will blame Nascar, the weather man and even aliens if he thought someone would listen about how it's all their fault nobody was in his dump the past few days. How about this Craig, shut your dump down and move to Topeka and sell itsy bitsy tiny fucking cars with your buddy Hearne and you can sit at one or the others desk when it's too slick to sell cars and whine to each other how the weather man is fucking up your life. Or you could always go back to being a rat snitch again. I hear Vern Miller is thinking of making a come back to public service and will need a team of idiots to do his dirty work.

Anonymous said...

Glazer just shut up and stop whining you whiny bitch. This is what the 5th or 6th time you have done this same whiny story. Go buy a Pop It Pal and make yourself useful unless that is too challenging for you. I told Bryan Busby you were bitching about him and he said, "Craig Who?"

Anonymous said...

Craig, you're such an idiot. Don't you realize that personnel have to consider the citizenry of the whole area, and consequently have to err on the side of caution. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. You just do your own little thing and leave the rest of us the hell alone.

Anonymous said...

1136, babble much? What the hell are you talking about, anyway?

Anonymous said...

I think Craig has a valid point.

We need some kind of objective standard. It would be good PR for all of the news people to get on board and restore concidence. The streets are fine now but there was some danger in the morning.

We've got to do better!

"It was really bad over by the old blue ridge mall yesterday"

Then blame Independence, dipshit.

@ 12:55, that was just Mike Thompson. The "Smirking Panic Monger" and everyone else at our local Fox "News" channel is worried about their collapsing ratings, and desperately trying to recover some shards of their lost credibility.

Kind of like Glazer, pining for the days when he "walked 23 miles to school every day here in Kansas City, uphill both ways, fighting off Indians with his "Lost In Space" lunchbox." back in the 1960s.

Craig is just irritated because he saw someone outside his place with a dollar in their hand, and ever since then he's been whining and telling everyone "that Bastard had MY DOLLAR".

Weather Coverage in KC is FANTASTIC!
Every channel on TV has the "CERTIFIED MOST ACCURATE WEATHER".

They cancel everything because of a bunch of lazy-ass school teachers who want to sit on their ass at home, collecting a paycheck.
The weather hasn't stopped the one across the street from me from going out shopping early this morning.

Erin ANDREWS, 1136?? Yeah, right, Erin Andrews is coming to Kansas City to do the weather. BRAAHAHAHA!! It's Erin LITTLE, you dip. Man, you really are thick.

Busby should stick to sucking dick and doing weather forecasts. Craig should stick to sucking dick and ratting out drug dealers.

Ive hear of this Glazer guy. Doesn't he shit himself on a regular basis? I stood next to him at some dump comedy club one night and he stunk real bad.

Anonymous said...

I didn't know Glazer owned a comedy club? I heard he had to sell it that is why it moved within a year of returning to the Legends. Only way Glazer does a sell out is by giving half the tickets away for free that or ten people show up. Plus who the hell is Sean Brennan? Never heard of him. Busby saying Craig who that's priceless and what's even funnier is The so called King of Sting failed to get what it really meant. But here let me fill you in Craig it meant, "You mean Craig the nobody who thinks he is somebody?"

Super Dave said...

The real comedy in Kansas City is reading the comments after Glazer does one of his rants.

CG said...

Again all the trolls, like Super Dave the guy who cleans the lawn at some gold course that not a human knows...make the same comments as always, rat, liar, club sucks, so on oh and I'm a nobody...hard be a nobody when there have been thousands of stories on you in papers all over the world on your life, your career as an icon in comedy world and you are on radio and t.v. here and all over the country...all the time As for your jealous he's rat stories based on nothing in no story by media, paperwork by FBI or any law enforcement agency has that ever been even mentioned...its called lies by jealous nothings who couldn't carry my left sock, and BETTER YET WOULD NEVER AND HAVE NEVER COME UP TO ME AND SAID ONE WORD...why...gee I wonder.

AS FOR THIS STORY IT HAPPENED AGAIN TODAY SCHOOLS CLOSED, NO ICE, NO SNOW AND A CITY SHUT DOWN...IT HAS TO STOP.

Anonymous said...

Leave it to Glazer to attack something and someone only because they are right and he isn't. If you want the proof Glazer has a writer now just look at what he posted here. What's a gold course? You attacking people like George Toma now because they do lawns? The owners of Suburban Lawn could buy and sell you any day of the week while laughing at your net worth. Another Glazer it's all about me story and written as poorly as he is well know to do. Craig nobody wants to carry your left sock or anything else you own. None of my many friends have ever been in prison or had a partner gunned down in a failed attempt to steal from someone as you have or even had the legal issues that seem to follow you. You bring attention to your failings and chest beating I'm better than you crap while all along not understanding that the mass majority of the public doesn't like you and never will. Having your name in the papers all the time does not make you a winner or a successful person. It just makes more people aware of just who you really are and that isn't always good as history can prove when it comes to you.

PS Still banned from Entercom I see, sure that would look good a resume when you are job seeking as I think you will be in a year or so when this new location fails as all the others have.

The best thing that ever happened in Prairie Village was when Craig moved out.
Nobody liked him here either and he was a total dweeb while going to SME. Whoever killed Don shot the wrong man.
