Newspaper Pull Quotes Not-So-Surprisingly Support Progressive Fake News Agenda

Admittedly, the graphic is great but the "reporting" is just some newsie finding people to support a series of talking points.

Even worse . . .

NONE OF THESE PEOPLE OBJECTED TO THE LITANY OF HIGHER KCMO TAXES?!?!

Doubtful.

Here's the to-do-list disguised as reporting:

KC voters have questions for their 11 mayoral candidates | The Kansas City Star

Standing at the edge of the ditch she has helped clean up over and over again, a discouraged Brenda Thomas looked at the abandoned tires, the old recliner and the rest of the trash from people who had clearly ignored the small "NO DUMPING" sign.

Now would be a good time for KCPT to rerun their piece on the 2011 mayoral election in which Sly toured the streets of Marlborough with neighborhood representatives and promised he'd take care of their issues.

Marlborough's issues remain. Our tax dollars have gone toward a useless streetcar, a superfluous hotel, and pricey downtown housing for millennials.

I'm sure the mayoral candidates will all pay lip service to the neighborhoods, but in four or eight years, we'll be back to go and won't even have collected $200.

Non-failing infrastructure, basic services, clean and safe neighborhoods are the fabric that makes and holds together a city. Sadly the fabric of KCMO is shredded to pieces.

The city needs to let Brenda Thomas know Slie will immediately have a developer look into her neighborhoods concerns.
Meanwhile the chief enforcement officer for illegal dumping will install cameras at the illegal dumping site in her neighborhood.
Since all of this is not happening downtown Slie is unconcerned.

@7:35AM...and yet KC is still here. Weird!

One whiner works in the Northeast area, where apartment rents are fairly low, but lives in Westport, where rentals are much higher. She wants the city to subsidize her rent so she can live wherever she wants instead of where she can afford.

Another whiner lives in Midtown but works in south Kansas City, and it takes him a long time to get to work using public transportation. He wants the city to provide a bus that will take him directly to his outlying job, never mind that during rush hour most commuters are going the other way. No mention of why he can't buy a car, move to a more direct bus route or get a job closer to home.

Too many hands are out for free stuff instead of working for a self help fix.

^^^^^What's your hourly rate, gopher? Taxpayers have a need to know.

^^Why aren't you at work? Why do you ask the same question on every post? Why don't you have a life?

^^^^Who says I'm not at work? My job could be making sure taxpayers get what they're paying for.

^^^Your shitty style of writing ensures you're not at work. Judging from your posts, you likely haven't worked in decades. Fucking taker!

^^^^^Or I could be in HR monitoring your emails. It takes even fewer skills to be in HR than it does to do the big guy's bidding on the internet all day, you know.

^^^Or you could be a hobo stinking up the library, which is most likely the case.

Well, the library does have some good facilities in spite of the city's constantly robbing them to pay for streetcars, hotels, and subsidized millennials. But I do have to go somewhere else for my three martini lunch.

^^No. You don't.
