BAD SANTA: HAS MAYOR SLY KILLED KANSAS CITY CHRISTMAS SPIRIT???
This Sunday night we can't help notice that so many denizens of our blog community seem a bit glum and not in Christmas spirit at all.
Tears from snowflakes still haven't dried one year after the well-deserved defeat of Hillary Clinton.
And now the tenure of Prez Trump has been tarnished and mired in allegations about Russia and his shady biz history.
Meanwhile, closer to home . . .
PORCH PACKAGE PIRATES, SPITEFUL POLITICS AND THE RISING MURDER COUNT DEFINE KANSAS CITY CHRISTMAS 2017!!!
More to the point . . .
TEAM SLY IS MAKING CHRISTMAS NASTY WITH HIS #BETTERKCI BLAME GAME AFTER HIS BACKROOM RIGGED AIRPORT PLAN FAILED AND CITY COUNCIL WAS FORCED TO CLEAN UP HIS MESS!!!
Some of what we'll see from Team Sly in the next few days . . .
- Middle-class white guys questioning the motives of African-American Council dudes with far more street cred than Mayor Sly.
- The newspaper desperately working to decipher their corporate mandate and help the Mayor save face.
- More hype about "momentum" that only seems to be helping developers, lawyers consultants while Kansas City taxpayers subsidize one project after the next.
Finally, it's during this tense holiday discussion we notice that Mayor Sly isn't full of much cheer and he's having a harder time playing the jolly fat man for obliging middle-aged white broads.
Faith interlude . . . And none of this might make a difference to po'folk and vets who are dying in fires amid a deadly game of bumper cars on KCMO streets.
Either way, the only thing we can be sure of is more fighting the Christmas season and rage as Midterm 2018 elections approach.
As always, thanks for reading this week and we hope to have more for the morning update . . . STAY TUNED!!!
