Kansas City Tourist Promo: How We Do KC?!?

A bit of promotional sweetness from the new film commission forgets a few facts . . .

- Kansas City now hosts a HOMICIDE SPIKE of more than 30% this year over last.

- City Hall debt is now spiraling out of control as the cost of living and city services, like local water bills, skyrocket.

- The current Mayoral Administration has adopted a voter suppression strategy to ram through a slate of multi-million-dollar projects for political cronies.

Also, TKC is still pissed that we never got that downtown NHL team we were promised.

Sadly, none of these fun facts are featured in this clip which is mostly comprised of stock footage depicting goof-balls living off their credit cards whilst pretending to be middle-class.

Take a look:

You decide . . .

And consider the fact that the mayor doesn't even own property here............ classless act this guy is

Yeah, because clips of Tony living in his mom's basement are so much better than this propaganda video.

The main difference between KC and Detroit is their mayor got convicted for his corruption and ours hasn't yet been convicted. Plus detroits schools are better than ours.

24 million tourists!
The arts capital of the USA!
A center of tech innovation!
Everybody's moving downtown!
A city that never sleeps!
If you can make it here, you'll make it anywhere!
A world of PR, empty promises, faked numbers, complete abdication of actual local government responsibilities, insider dealing, and hype, hype, hype!
Disneyland on the plains.

Same five people commentating every day. You should move if it's so bad.

Why would anyone who doesn't live in KCMO want to move from the metro?
Only about 26% of metro residents live in KC and the rest simply watch in amusement as the silliness and waste go on day after week, after month, after year.
No high murder rates.
No $100/month water bills.
Great public schools.
Well-maintained roads, streets, and sidewalks.
All within just a few miles of KCMO city hall.
Quality of life really doesn't get any competition from endless rah rah, especially for people who live in the area and know better.
Just have to keep hoping those tourists from Topeka keep coming!

+1 - that pretty much sums it up. Kc is actually dragging the rest of the metro down.
