STREET LIFE: ANOTHER ROUND OF WINTER FAIL AWAITS KANSAS CITY?!?!

Whilst Kansas City confronts potholes and water main breaks, one more blast of Winter threatens to turn streets into garbage again. More perspective on this town coping with the consequences of a developer focused agenda at City Hall:

City crews attempting to prevent repeat of Friday's winter problems in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- It's a familiar sight to anyone who drives the 31st and Summit hill in the winter. "People who don't have proper tires have a very difficult time," Tiffany Lanigan, who is a Kansas City resident, said. Lanigan lives a block up the hill from where cars were struggling to get up on Friday.

Another infrastructure fail at 99th and Holmes. Vibrant KCMO moving forward with momentum.

Kansas City looks like HELL. The streets are so bad everyone has to drive all over the place just to dodge potholes. Tree limbs are broken and haven't been picked up, rusted sewer and water lines that have been laying on the street for months with orange cones.

Where are the tax dollars going? Big developers and their infrastructure for failed projects that will sit empty and the developer walks away with a huge loss that benefits him as a write off.

Sly worst mayor ever not a business man and Stupid Stupid Stupid, way worse than The Funk.

^^Whaaaa!!!!! Potholes!!!! Whaaa!! Sure we can't really fix them when we continue to have freezes/thaws, freezes/thaws, snow, Ice, freeze, thaw, but don't let that stop your crying fit. Whaaa!! Sure KC came and picked up all the broken tree limbs if you called and got on the list, I did. They picked up all of mine. But don't let that nasty little bit of truth bust your whacked-out narrative. Whaaaaa!!!!!!

3rd District Council bullies grab slush fund money which could be used for basis maintenance and additional policing and spend it on wasteful projects in their district. The Mayor lets this happen and the council does not object.
The KCMO City Council is a great example of why Trump had the Republicans still have around 40 % following...

^^^ so why aren’t you buying stock and making enough money to get out of your uncles trailer home then?

A lot of you idiots need to stop trying to drive when there is heavy snow falling down and your tires are bald. plan ahead. If you need things go out and get them before it gets bad out. Why do so many people get on I-70 and drive 55-60+ MPH when snow is coming down at a rate of over and inch an hour? WTF people?


Do you have to pick up a child from daycare? Leave work early and get home before the roads are dangerous.

Are you seriously going out to eat someplace while the roads are turning into slick lanes?

I....I just don’t understand why so many people in Kansas City go out on the roads when they are so dangerous. Then again I see how this town votes.

^^Hey shitbird, some of us work and have jobs. Some of us know how to drive in the snow. You don't. Unlike you, I'm not afraid of it. You keep your dumb ass at home and stay off the roads so I don't have to put your worthless ass in the ditch for driving too slow for conditions. You copy that Maude?

Anonymous said...

8:46 simmer down. I know how to drive in snow, and have a good vehicle for it.

“Some of us work and have jobs”. Right, well you must be low on the totem pole where you work (if you do) if they make you come to or stay when the roads get dangerous.

What about the tree branches and trees that are down on city owned lots?
Even in the summer time there is potholes every where so S'lies excuse about how mamy miles the city must maintain is lame,even when they fill the holes they just use a hand tamper instead of using a roller to flatten out fill.

^^^Whaaa!!! Whaaa!!!!!! What about this...what about that!!! Whaaaaa! But the potholes!!!! Whaaaa!!! What about the shitty geezers who complain??? Whaaaa!!! There are summer potholess oh no!!!!!! They are filling it all wrong! I know because I'm on here all the time!!! Whaaaa!!!!

It must be fun to sit in Kansas City and complain endlessly and never do anything to better one's self like moving to a different city.

What's that like, guys? What's keeping you here? What utopia are you considering moving to? DO let us know!

7:36 is absolutely right. Driving on Ward Pkwy is like playing dodgeball to avoid potholes and I’m sure other streets are worse. Especially annoying to JoCo residents that pay your stupid e-tax for non-existent city services.

One where basic civic governance is attempted, where real issues like crime, schools, infrastructure, and tax burden are actually dealt with.

Instead of the clown car crew we have right now, who only care about arranging slush funds and sweetheart deals, while screwing up everything they touch.

All of these complaints being well within the realm of voter concerns.

Glad to help! :)

Yeah, sure, fine but you didn't answer the most important question. Which city in Shrangri-La are you planning to move to?

Anonymous said...

If you’re tied here to a job, family or other major life factor, escaping the shitbox that is KCMO isn’t difficult. There are still parts of the northland and Johnson county that are really nice, safe and well-maintained. So maybe you’ll no longer be as “KC cool” as the guy that’s obsessed with shitty diapers or the one that licks the fat mayor’s asshole, but it’s worth it to have a more comfortable life.

This one will do just fine. You seem confused so I'll help.

You see, rather than move to another town, I would rather elect officials who aren't as corrupt and incompetent as the comedy team we currently have. Then, instead of going through the trouble of relocating, I could expect what any reasonable person should; that their local government actually does what it's elected to do.

Clearer? Took that one nice and slow for you. ;)


Anonymous said...

Nope. Still confused.

Why haven't you gotten them elected? What are you waiting for? Have you worked for a candidate? Is it even an issue brought up (no)? Do you even bother voting?

Let me guess, you'll waste your time on Clay Chastain and watch him get 6% of tee the vote again.

If you're so fucking smart why don't you run? Because you couldn't manage a dogshit cleanup business?

Or maybe it's because this shithole is limited to a few whiny crybabies and most Kansas City residents like it and are satisfied.

That's the most obvious explanation, and therefore probably the correct one.

Haha, 12:43 knocked out of the ring.

You guys should form the TKC Party, and then your diaper-packed trash will be picked up daily and there will be GOLDEN SLOWPLOWS ASSIGNED TO EVERY STREET!!!

Then you can figure out how to pay for it. With your expertise in municipal finance or should be a breeze! A new era in Kansas City politics is at hand, boy! Can't wait to see who you run! He'll get this town cleaned up!

Yes, sir! One of you geniuses, step up! Let's go! He'll get 101% of the vote!

Geezers getting their clocks cleaned today! Love it! All these whining, complaining, bastards getting run! Beautiful!

Your confusion is indeed profound, and like many confused people you're angry. I'll try one more time, just for you because I can see you really are struggling with the basics.

Once again: The mixed bag of ambulance chasers, developer cronies, urban futurists and their shills (like you) who have unfortunately been elected bear the total responsibility of their ongoing failures. Not the citizens, whose main recourse is at the ballot box. Because of a great deal of voter apathy and downright corruption, bad people do get elected sometimes. Then it becomes the job of good citizens to speak out.

Which you hate. Get used to it, because it will continue in spite of the way it irritates you and your silly masters.

Best of luck. ;)

It's so odd when you congratulate your own posts. Oh well. Refer to previous, etc.

Anyway, isn't your master Mayor Bullhorn needing another mouth job? Kraske might be teaching today, so I guess it's you.

He also needs a Scotch. Don't worry, I'm sure His Obesity doesn't know a blend from a single malt. Hop to it!

5:59, you need help. Real, serious help. The way you have to always have the last word, your incessant geezer/diaper references, the way you commend your own posts. You have signs of being a sociopath. I’m also curious if you are a negro. You have a perpetual chip on your shoulder and this blog seems to set you off, but rather than avoid it, you’re like a moth to a flame. There are resources out there to help cases like you. I hope you will take advantage of them. Good luck.
