Kansas City Mardi Gras 2019 Last Call!!!
The annual MIDNIGHT SWEEP ON BOURBON STREET shuts down one of the best parties in the U.S. and begins the Lenten tradition of sacrifice, prayer and a wide variety of Catholic shame and self-hatred.
Similarly, we'd like to use this last post today to note the end of a few more Kansas City parties coming to a conclusion in the very near future . . .
Personal automobiles - Uber/Lyft, e-Scooters, electric buses & even toy trains have a better future than classic American heavy metal. The Green New Deal, trade wars and the march of time is getting rid of this poor man's luxury first & foremost.
Capitalism - Socialism is sexy and the new hotness among the NEXTGEN. Meanwhile, let's be fair and remember that MAGA and AMERICA FIRST also rebel against CORPORATISM that sends American jobs oversees by the thousands, touts automation and imports high-skilled workers for lower fees by way of immigration loopholes. In the end and as rising income equality creates greater suffering for both progressives & Conservatives . . . There are fewer and fewer people willing to trust in the market more than their flimsy political worldviews.
The Suburbs - Big money, culture and the discourse keep moving inside the loop as developer giveaways for luxury living space seem nearly endless. Unless we get a cleansing crash, look for local POWER PLAYERS to continue their exodus to the nicer parts of the KCMO LUXURY CONDO urban core whilst the plebs on the outskirts of town are forced to slug it out in tougher block to block fights for survival that we're already seeing play out with rising crime among the inner-suburs.
And so we offer this last call playlist at the end of KC good times . . .
And as the election silly season starts to get sadly serious . . .
As always, thanks for reading today and hopefully we'll have more sometime around midday . . . Maybe.
