TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! GREEN NEW DEAL THREATENS NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT?!?



A brief but tense exchange in today's Airport Committee meeting sparks a new wave of of questions that put the future of the new airport in jeopardy.

To wit . . .

Likely with a bit of sarcasm & hyperbole but still sharing a legitimate concern about the future of "progressive" legislation championed by Democratic Congress lady Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez targeting air travel & more . . . 

NORTHLAND COUNCILWOMAN HEATHER HALL QUESTIONED THE IMPACT OF THE GREEN NEW DEAL ON KCI!!!



In the open session, again, with a great deal of snark, Council Lady Hall asked: "If it happens, do we even need a new airport?"

The answer was even scarier . . .

Mayor Sly James quickly moved to mansplain and wrongly asserted that the Green New Deal was more of a "political philosophy" whilst Aviation dude Patrick Klein was taken off guard and simply assured Council that Aviation would get updates about pending legislation from their lobbyists but have yet to receive any word.

Nevertheless . . .

THE QUESTION STANDS AND KANSAS CITY IS TYPICALLY UNPREPARED: CITY HALL AND AVIATION DON'T KNOW HOW THE GREEN NEW DEAL WILL IMPACT NEW KCI!!!

Whilst locals tout the "environmental assessment" approval from the FAA. This legislation is more important and threatens further eco-crackdowns if passed. 

Sadly, MSM has presented this issue merely as a partisan slap-fight and very little real news is available without culture war slant and fake news spin.

Prez Trump claims the legislation will take our cows but that might be "fake moos" as well.



Here's a bit more info for edification:

Fox News: Green New Deal's infrastructure plan could cost trillions

CNBC: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal 'would be a loser' for Democrats against Trump in 2020, says Barney Frank

Reality Check . . .

Debate over local impact of the Green New Deal merits more discussion and offers yet another example of how new KCI developers and cheerleaders haven't thought much about the future but still rush to get Kansas City taxpayers to sign over BILLIONS.

You decide . . .

I may not like him, will never vote for him. But the President is correct to make fun of any legislation that targets the mass release of bovine gases. Cortez should have paid closer attention to her bill before letting that nonsense into it.

When your politics are sleazy and your manhoods gettin queazy drop the crap bring up the kids propose a tax.

Sly doesn't know what he's talking about. It is a bill proposed before the house. It's not a "philosophy" or a set of principals. It's regulation that will cost a lot of money. The spin never stops with that guy even when he's walking around city hall so angry that he won't even let people finish a sentence.

Absolutely correct @12:21, this green new deal is just another ploy to over charge Americans and extort all businesses that don't align with the progressive agenda.

They are quite literally trying to charge us for the air we breath.

It's bad politics and I wish that patriotic Democrats, yes they do exist, would tell the socialist left that higher taxes are not the answer to America's problems.

So not only has this Communist bartender introduced the single funniest piece of legislation ever introduced, now she's been caught putting her boyfriend on the payroll.

Her single term will be far too little for a nation starved of the joy of laughter. :)

Slie appears to be a desperate mayor and is doing everything he can to circumvent regulations that pertain to the airport project and dismissing items which should be taken seriously. Councilwoman Hall did the right thing in questioning how AOC's piece of legislation would impact the airport fiasco. Obviously the airport dude is not keeping tabs on it. Another failure by city management.

Reality check: new laws can't be applied to existing projects.

It makes your stupid question moot.

Word has it they may be getting closer to a deal today.

Has City Council read all the fine print yet?

"Fake moos" - Heh, heh... awesome.

AOC has a degree from Boston University in “Economics”.

The fuckin dolt, “Peter Principled” herself into a Bar Tending job, where her skills matched her salary and then (Thank you Jesus…) caught local lightning in a bottle and catapulted her fine looking ass into the “House of Representatives” where she is inflicting some serious Karma on her superiors who torture us 24/7 with their “High Ground” horse shit.

Her sheepskin firmly ensconced under her arm, Ms. Smith heads off to Washington, where (I can’t quit laughing, I swear… I love her so much, Goddamn!!! So awesome…), she implores her fellow citizens from New Yawk, to get out into the streets and protest the advent of Amazon and 20,000 (Count ’em muttha fuckka.) 20,000, $150,000.00 a year jobs coming into the market (Not counting all of the other jobs, and concomitant economic activity.) because she thinks, dumb fuck that she is, that New York city is cutting a check to Jeff “Look at my dick die in darkness” Bezos for 3 billion dollars.

So I get it, that no everyone should understand tax abatement schemes concocted in hopes of acquiring a big company presence in any given city. But she is not “everyone” she is in receipt of an “Economics Degree” from Boston University and is a ranking, high profile member of the fuckin United States Of American House of Representatives. LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is not just an indictment of the blood simple, brain dead, death grinding stupidity of the Democrat Party, it is prima facie evidence of the quality of college graduates everywhere in the new, “Dumbed Way The Fuck Down”, Affirmative Action, quota driven, Gender Study, curriculum, now available for purchase for our children.

There is, at this point, no reason to couch this in any language other than this.

The bitch is an idiot.
