TKC EXCLUSIVE FLASH!!! KANSAS CITY WATER STINKS AND SURVEY SEYZ VOTERS BLAME CITY HALL INCUMBENTS FOR IT!!!



The latest polling doesn't bode well for Kansas City elected officials hoping to gain higher office or fend off off election challengers.

Here's the word . . .

"A weekend flash poll of likely Kansas City voters discovered that recent warnings about local water quality have inspired negative feelings directed toward Mayor Sly James and City Council members. These same voters then responded that they were more likely to vote for a City Hall outsider than someone who had experience at City Hall. This trend holds up to real life scrutiny given that a last time a Kansas City councilman was elected as mayor was in 1991."

Among more than 500 voters questioned the common theme was this:

"Likely voters blamed Mayor Sly James & City Council for rising water rates and worsening qualify of water department service."

KICK-ASS TKC TOP ECHELON INSIDERS offered their perspective from this weekend flash poll and one respondent could be heard over the phone talking at the top of his lungs . . .

"They keep charging you more and more . . . The water bills are sky high but you can't drink it?!?! What kind of ripoff is that?"

And so . . . It seems that residents fear Kansas City moving toward a future that looks a lot like Flint, MI with water infrastructure contributing to health problems and opening the floodgates to municipal bankruptcy.

I blame the schools. I guess they're not teaching math or more people would know that you can't spend money on trains and airports and still maintain sewers and pipes that are nearly 100 years old. It doesn't add up.

Sly's legacy. Flooding, floding everywhere but not a drop to drink.

I know they keep saying that it's safe to drink but they said that in Flint right until they started delivering the lead warnings. I don't think I'm being paranoid and some healthy skepticism is merited. Wish the Water Department would have done more preparation with this.

If you're mixing it with scotch. You won't notice.

Don't blame the schools or the people or the voters.

Blame the people who sold KC Water to Burns and McDonnell. They deserve some scrutiny over this. They run the show.

This is such a poorly run city.

Remember when everyone actually bought the whole Jason Kander dropping out due to PTSD when the reality was he needed an out because he took a deeper look and realized he didn't want to be responsible for this shit hole

Independence has award winning water, and Blue Springs and Lee’s Summit use it as well.

Wow, polling, huh?

Let's examine this "exclusive" closely.

First of all, we don't know Who conducted the poll, or how many people were polled or what the margin of error is.

A better question is why would anyone conduct a poll on this when any reasonable person already KNOWS that the flooding, and the water quality associated with it, is to blame.

Conclusion: barring a link to the actual results and methodology, this is made up and fake. There was no poll.

Prove me wrong.

And in KCMO, if you don't like the "services" provided by city government and you blame the incumbent mayor and council, what do you do?
You RE-ELECT them or even elect them to positions to where they can ignore you even more and do even more damage!
You really can't make this stuff up!
Hahahahaha!!

I blame it on the flooding.

It's the high river level, morons. Jesus. It's as plain as the nose on your face.

"Poll" my ass.

This is what happens when sane, long-range fiscal planing is replaced by glow in the dark construction projects and huge long-term debt. Dissent within the masses.

City Hall's worse fears are accurate - the People are revolting!
(They've always thought so, and now it's becoming fact.)

@ 9:45 - the water was crappy before the rains - so go find someone else to "pole your ass" - Imbecile

Shouldn’t the city be prepared for at least moderate flooding? The mayor and city council have failed. The water has been bad for years and the rates just go up..

Anonymous said...

..and yet the water hasn’t been bad for yeasts. Weird

Anonymous said...

Yes, I blame the mayor for all the excess precipitation upstream. That's right! It's undoubtedly a Democrat scheme to control the weather.

But hey here's a serious question.

How'd y'all get to be so goddamn dumb?

Reality Speaker said...

Hey you asshole complainers! We need the new magnificent airport, the FREE toy train and its extension, more help for 18th and Vine and MLK signs up.

These are important, as well as everything downtown and around Power & Light.

So suck it up (the water) and give some credit to the Gipper. Vote for all the incumbent council members who work so hard for us peons.

Welcome to Kansas City, heart of the New Midwest.

Enjoy the corruption, crime, potholes, shit water, jerks, traffic, lousy weather because that’s #HowWeDoKC.

Did anyone notice that the city notified the state on the 17th that they failed the testing but didn’t tell the citizens until the 23rd? Weird.

Thinking you're witty is comparable to knowing the difference between your and you're.

You are wrong most of the time.

Did anyone notice the city has 30 days to notify the state?

Guess you didn't.

Evidently not so weird.

The Kansas City and Flint water problems are comparable only in that both cities had a water problem. In every other way they are dissimilar.

Plus, the Flint water "crisis" was primarily journalistic hype. See:

it's a steve miller poll, they called me and I told them to suck it! Will not vote for that GOP goon.

Anonymous said...

3:49 so are you saying that the problem may have happened in February? If your 30 day rule applies that is. The point being made is it took the city a week to notify the citizens there was a problem. By your expert opinion we should’ve have been told about this a month ago making this problem worse than they’re admitting to but this is what we’ve come to expect from sLIE and his clowncil. Evidently not so weird in corrupt city.

LOL

Although the water might look or smell strange, KC Water said it's nothing to be worried about.

"The color comes from water we're getting from some of the different tributaries, which have a color in it, and our treatment process is not set up to remove the color," said Mike Klender, KC Water Treatment Plant manager.

Evidently not too scrupulous, weird.

Johnston said...

I don't need a poll to tell me that KC water stinks. I just pour a glass from the tap and take a whiff. Smells like crap to me.

It's too bad the art of politics is telling people that a turd in their thermos is a sign of progress.
