Jeff Bezos has phenomenal leverage over the weak. It feels like the peasants are coming before the king, bearing whatever meager offerings they can scrape together, and begging him for his favor. Having humbled themselves at Bezos’ feet, praised his products and promoted his brand, nearly all of them will walk away with… nothing.

What the fuck is in the water around here that has these local clowns thinking Amazon would even cote to KC to take a good healthy shit? Obviously the local boss hogs have not take a look at the cities that have a chance. Better stick to trying to get teh Democratic convention. We certainly have the right ethnic mix for the shitflakes.

Actually he is right. KC does not have a chance at landing Amazon HQ2 without a new airport. What he failed to mention was, KC does not have a chance at landing Amazon HQ2 with a new airport.

This is such BS and Reardon is smarter than this. We have an international airport now with several flights to Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean. Amazon does not want an airport, they want FLIGHTS to DOZENS of European and Asian destinations that we will never have regardless of the airport. He knows this and is reverting to the politician he always was to keep the construction companies and other government teat suckers on the CofC membership roster.

And jobs??? There are stories everywhere about construction jobs being hard to fill. Too many jobs and not enough trained people. Those who are are jumping for hurricane jobs in Houston and Florida. So any airport jobs will be filled by people who don't live here or will be pulled from other work here driving up costs on every other project in town.

So STFU

Reardon How about we bulldoze east of 435 in Wyandotte and turn the whole city into an airport, that might be the only reason worth going there

After this, I just wonder if there is ANYthing Reardon would not say.
He's the Sarah Huckabee Sanders of the Kansas City business community.
