AND THE BAND PLAYED ON: KANSAS CITY STREETCAR TOUTS TOY TRAIN SUMMER MUSIC SERIES AMID RIGGED ELECTION!!!
Lets' not forget, in 2017 voters passed a measure requiring a CITYWIDE vote before extending the streetcar. 51.3 percent of Kansas City voters approved.
Nevertheless . . .
BECAUSE ELECTIONS DON'T COUNT IN KANSAS CITY . . . A SHADY PRIVATE MAIL-IN BALLOT PERSISTS DESPITE COMPLAINTS OF VOTER SUPPRESSION!!!
Sadly, local media have refused to challenge this scheme and instead tout an upcoming music festival.
KC Streetcar Authority announces summer music series lineup
Mainstream news also doesn't report that the local bands get about $300-a-pop for their performances proving that the toy train is a just a prop for alleged 25 MILLION Kansas City visitors every year.
To be fair, the line-up seems fun and diverse.
Here's a sneak peek:
July 18 on board the streetcar, Martha Haehl, Karen Hendricks & Roberta VonFange (folk, rock & roll, gospel)
July 18, 5:30 – 7:30pm Hammerhedd (heavy metal inspired)
July 25, 5:30 – 7:30pm, KC Rumba Collective (Afro-Cuban drum)
Aug. 1, The Center State (folk Americana)
Aug. 8 on board the streetcar, Mundo Nouvo (Afro-Caribbean)
Aug. 15 on board the streetcar, Pink Royal (soulful pop)
Aug. 22, They Call Me Sauce (hip-hop)
Aug. 29 on board the streetcar, Noah Davis (soul, r&b, British rock)
Whilst Westport biz fights this transit effort and warns about deadly Midtown violence along this proposed line, there really is not stopping this taxpayer subsidized promotional effort that's probably even more peppy than the music board Titanic as it sank.
Meanwhile, our blog community notes that there have been increasing shut downs & a few violent hobo dust-ups aboard this controversial mode of transit.
Nevertheless, Kansas City news reports good times rather than the very real debate about gerrymandering and the subversion of local Democracy.
You decide . . .
