KANSAS CITY WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS: 'ANGRY WHITE MEN' ALMOST DOMINATE!!!
Just a bit of history to start this missive on the topic of power . . . It turns out women have a storied and impressive history when it comes to strength sports. As the population ages, the benefits of weight training are touted to help both men and women. Also, TKC finds brawny ladies sexy if only for help getting off the couch after an EPIC video game session. But I digress . . .
Tonight we celebrate the strongest in town according to our blog community and our recent discussions . . . Take a look:
TALK OF ANGRY WHITE MEN DOMINATES THE KANSAS CITY DISCOURSE THIS WEEK
Outrage and clickbait on the topic of the KU "Angry White Male" course garnered more attention than voting over the past few days. Meanwhile, we can't imagine that any of the white guys who were rejected for Kansas City mayor were pleased about it . . . Still this cultural studies consideration paints a scary narrative that pushed the concept of the "angry white man" to the most powerful place in our debates this week.
JUBILANT WHITE DUDES DOMINATE THE DISCOURSE BEHIND THE SCENES
Whilst the plebs were busy talking about the myth of "affordable housing" and other social justice fantasies throughout the silly season . . . On the opposite side of the spectrum, white dudes with a lot of cash pretty much dictated the discourse and the KCMO vote this week. The Chamber, The Civic Council and developers can't lose the upcoming general election and the cowtown ruling class seems happy, almost giddy, at the prospect of another four years with their puppets in power.
KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS BUILD COALITIONS TO PUSH BACK MAYOR SLY
The bright side to this week . . . Tax weary Kansas City told Mayor Sly James NO and SMACKED DOWN his expensive and regressive Pre-K proposal. Most of the credit goes to the KCPS and 3rd District leaders like the Urban Summit. HOWEVER, let's not underestimate the influence of tax fighters who campaigned hard to fact check this tax and saved "the corridor" from the typical trickery and overly emotional pleas used to push this kind of slush fund politics.
And so we enter the second half of the silly season fight for the heart and soul of Kansas City . . .
This list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people, trends and our times.
