THE KANSAS CITY BUDGET RUCKUS!!!



The GOLD STANDARD of KCMO political discourse offers an important conversation over some of the most important issues impacting taxpayer pocketbooks right now . . .

"Mike Shanin talks to KC Scholars Program Manager Valerie Salazar about the organization's workforce development and scholarship opportunities. Gwen Grant, Arthur Benson, Annie Presley and Crosby Kemper III discuss the most recent developments in the new KCI terminal project, the battle over the budget and taxes in the Kansas legislature & criticisms of the lack of civic engagement in Kansas City."

Take a look:



You decide . . .

Let's see - we have a lawyer who enriched himself by being the architect of the destruction of the Kansas City, Mo Public School District, a woman whose entire career has revolved around working at and running Taxpayer-supported (and ineffective) "action groups", a second woman who married a rich man and then wrote a book, and a Banking Dynasty scion who secretly (at least in KC's media) partners with Rex Sinquefield to recruit pliable GOP outsiders to run for State Offices in Missouri.

Hosted by a staunch Conservative activist whose biases are showing more and more in his interruptions of and rudeness to the guests/victims he devotes his show's opening segments to.

Yes, Sir - that's some "Gold Standard of Political Discourse" in Kansas City, all right!

6:37, it seems like a good mix of different viewpoints. If you were to put the panel together, whom would you invite instead?

Though I may not agree with all your characterizations, I heartily applaud your commentary. This blog needs more informed thinking critics like yourself, so thank you.

If Annie Presley is a Republican fundraiser, why has she contributed to Jolie Justus' mayoral campaign?

Note that she didn't disclose this financial relationship when defending Jolie Justus on the airport issue.

Arthur Benson is to education as Lizzie Borden was to mental health.

6:37 let us know when you come up with a commentary that is coherent. What is the gold standard of political discourse in KC, the aviation committee? HA!
Grant and Kemper were pretty damn clear, if you do not like what they say, why do you not try to actually refute their statements.
