Today's life lesson for broke-ass Kansas City residents was clear and reminds us that rising income inequality now rules nearly every aspect of American life.

FACT: Millionaire athletes working for powerful billionaire companies don't confront the same consequences as the rest of the cowtown plebs. To be fair, given rising violence in the metro, Kansas City footballers wouldn't be the only locals walking after speculation of wrongdoing.

Brief aside, Johnson County DA Steve Howe is taking heat for his statements today and that's undeserved. He handled his job professionally and he has our respect for shutting out The Chiefs & The NFL in his investigation.

But the real debate is outside of the courtroom and in the hearts and minds of Kansas City denizens.

Here's an overview: 

One of the team's marquee players is now tarnished by a child abuse scandal after a previous controversy involving a beat down on his partner.

A new defensive star will play for the team next season. His salary is just as heinous as his repeated controversies involving women.

QB Patrick Mahomes is billed as the team's hero but he's mostly famous for goofy trick passes and his work as a ketchup pitch man.

And we're all in agreement that Travis Kelce is one of the worst people to ever appear on a reality dating show. He's also overrated and likely washed up at this point in his career.

The team's troubles go beyond their horrible roster. Overpriced and often moldy fare dominates Arrowhead. This season some poor youngster was smacked in the head by a beer bottle thrown by one of the many rowdy fans. And let's never forget the poor dude who was beaten to death in the parking lot for getting into the wrong car and the manslaughter charge that earned a wrist slap.


Sadly, the substantial subsidy worth hundreds of millions provides local politicos very little authority or courage to take a stand on the problems confronting the team. MSM is dependent on the advertising revenue so any scrutiny will be quickly forgotten. And given that the Royals still have to wait another 27 years until their next meaningful season, Kansas City sports fanboys gleefully await the start of Chiefs football and the ensuing celebration of a cast of characters that locals would likely avoid in any other circumstance.

You decide . . .

Don't forget TKC, this little human drama is all watched from above by Clark Hunt and his 25 million dollar luxury sweet that jackson county helped to build.

All is forgiven if they can bring home a super bowl.

Earlier somebody made a good point about Mahomes playing much more conservatively next season in order to protect his endorsements. THAT is one of the best points I've ever seen on TKC. Well done.

^^^ There's no such thing as Byron Funkhouser. You're just a lonely troll who wants attention. Talk about the Chiefs you scumbag. You know nothing and should be blocked on this blog. Sorry dimwit Byron. Get lost. GO CHIEFS!

Weird isn't it?

Is there a time limit on being a fiancee? At what point does one simply become a live in (preggo) girlfriend?

Mark Funkhouser and I use to talk off and on. I still know how to reach him. I'm sure between him and Dennis someone knows exactly where Byron is located. Since he can't get blocked maybe it's time to take matters in a different direction. Surly there is somebody out there who will open an investigation on him.

I thought the MAGA people here were still boycotting those knelling black sons of bitches that should be fired.

You're all still following the Chiefs? What happened? Don't disappoint Dear Leader.

Why bother with Byron? He's a loon. But for about $19.99 he is very easy to find on the web.

Tell your local school not to accept any invitations from MU for your school band to participate in "band day" or MU homecoming.

Call your Missouri state legislators and demand that the Missouri Department of Revenue stop issuing MU personalized license plates.

Call your state legislators and demand that they pass legislation prohibiting Missouri state employees from displaying MU personalized license plates on their personal vehicles.

If you are within reasonable distance, go across the state line outside of Missouri to purchase fuel. License your car out of state if possible.

Byron and his ilk are willing to forgive the violent murderous black but what would they say if it was President Trump? Yup, we already know what they’d do and say. Different standards byron?

If you can’t prove a crime was committed then how can you accuse someone of committing a crime?
