TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY RAGES AGAINST PROPOSED PREZ TRUMP TRANSIT BUDGET CUTS THREATENING TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXTENSION!!!
Kansas City's quaint and smallish streetcar line is a success for the political elite but many locals have an alternative view of the expensive transit project now under threat by the President's budget.
Critics of the toy train cite a corrupt election to establish the line, phony ridership propaganda numbers and the current secret election currently underway that continues the tradition of disrespect for local Democracy and voter suppression.
Accordingly . . .
PREZ TRUMP BUDGET CUTS ARE THE BEST HOPE FOR KANSAS CITY TOY TRAIN STREETCAR CRITICS AGAINST CITY HALL ATTACKS ON LOCAL DEMOCRACY THAT PUSH THE TOY TRAIN FORWARD!!!
Even better . . .
CHECK THIS SCREED FROM MAYOR SLY ATTACKING PREZ TRUMP CUTTING BACK ON KANSAS CITY FAKE TRANSIT!!!
The Hill - Mayor Sly James: Trump’s proposed cuts to federal transit funding will harm American cities
"As he considers priorities for his budget and plans for revamping the nation’s infrastructure to make it “second to none,” President Trump should call up mayors and business owners in places like Oklahoma City and Kansas City, Salt Lake City and Seattle and ask them what streetcars have meant for the people living and working in their cities.
"I’m confident he’ll learn a lot about streetcars as an economic dynamo and a critical form of transportation in cities across the country."
But here's the kicker that local media has failed to report . . .
STREETCAR TIGER GRANTS ARE THE LOWEST PRIORITY FIGHT AGAINST THE PREZ TRUMP BUDGET!!!
A quick round-up . . .

HIPSTER GOOD TIMES AND FAUX TRANSIT IN KANSAS CITY IS VERY FAR DOWN THE LIST OF PRIORITIES FOR DEMOCRATIC PARTY DENIZENS FIGHTING PREZ TRUMP'S BUDGET!!!
We'll give the last word to a KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER who sent a note on the topic our way . . .
"All of the 1.8 billion in new investment in KCMO was bought with massive tax breaks from City Hall and would have happened without the trolley. 12th & Oak claims 80% of the businesses have seen increased revenue? Come for a ride on the streetcar and you will see block after block of empty store fronts. Is the streetcar a "transportation option" for residents??? Surely the mayor is jesting. There is virtually no ridership during the week, the tourist show up and ride it on the weekend. The trolley is an expensive tourist attraction that this City can not afford."
You decide . . .
