The Continued Kansas City Ruckus



Tonight's GOLD STANDARD OF KANSAS CITY DISCOURSE offers a few important updates and perspective from local talkers, pundits, politicos who struggle to maintain their cowtown happy face whilst discussing increasingly divisive local & national topics.

Take a look:

"Mike Shanin talks to Negro Leagues Baseball Museum President Bob Kendrick about the upcoming centennial celebration and the debate over a downtown baseball stadium. Jon Stephens, Theresa Garza, Laura McConwell and Steve Mirakian discuss the most recent developments in the new KCI terminal project, the lingering problems at the Jackson County Jail & Mike Pompeo's decision to not run for KS Senate.">

Take a look:

Most of them have no idea what's really happening at the airport and they've just been given the same script that Gopher is using. Glad that Mirakian at least challenged them somewhat.

For a conversation that's sponsored mostly by chamber & civic council interests. There were a few good points made about how much KC debt is piling up.

And how would we pay for a downtown stadium we can’t afford

It's a good question. I'm sure it has something to do with momentum and a lot of borrowing money.

"... one of the most significant occurrences of the twentieth Century is the founding of the Negro Leagues..."?

So much for Martin Luther King Jr.'s efforts, I guess.
And the Civil Rights Act.
And integration of the Armed Forces.

And... oh, a war or two, and a Moon landing, and Polio vaccines, and...

....and Democrat ran cities piling up massive debt.

Fun to watch McConwell and Mirakian leap aboard the GOP's "Panic Train" and pound on Cohen!

Don't the Republicans get it?
Killing the messenger won't clean up the mess - you guys picked him and gerrymandered him into office, now you're stuck with him!

Theresa Garza isn't she the one who got in trouble recently for dirty tricks?

Fell asleep instantly just looking at this post. Thankfully I have Autoplay-False checked which spared me from further damage.

^^^ Columbia MO., Makes sense because one of the biggest gun parts suppliers in the country is from there. 2A is a big deal in Missouri

Mirakian AGainst All others (MAGA)

Just the other day, I was dining on the Plaza when a hooligan accosted me concerning my red Mirakian cap.

When he started waving his arms and ranting against Trump, I calmly explained that my cap was in support of Mirakian For Senate.

I've rarely seen Sylvester James so embarrassed!
