TKC MUST READ!!! QUINTON LUCAS WINS ANOTHER KANSAS CITY MAYORAL DEBATE AS CLAY CHASTAIN REWRITES CLASSIC!!!
As expected, the mayoral front runner showed off his rhetorical skill this evening and left the crowd feeling warm & fuzzy.
At the same time there was an spate of shooting across KCMO as locals seemed more interested in figuring out how to pay their taxes then talking politics.
Here's a more convenient version tonight's rhetorical match-up for those who haven't seen it yet . . .
And then, we include a word from the write-in candidate on his estimation of this context and Kansas City in general . . .
Clay Chastain: City of Two Tales
It was an era of the best of glitz - it was an era of the worst of crime;
It was an age when many lived up in the air - it was an age when many lived in despair;
We had "momentum" before us - we had nothing before us.
It was an era of tax-abatement for wealthy developers - it was an era of high taxes for the rest;
The streetcar would solve all of our problems - the streetcar would solve none of our problems;
We had a paper for an agenda - we had no "paper for the people."
We were told the majority of voters voted for a new airport - when the majority of voters stayed home;
Liberal, progressive tax and spend politicians ruled the day - fiscally conservative taxpayers rued the day;
It was all within an age of victims - it was all within an age of no personal responsibility.
We had candidates who could run as write-in candidates in the general - we had candidates who could not;
It was a time of rigged elections - it was a time no one voted in elections;
It was a time we were united by constitution - it was a time we were divided in spirit.
Politicians worried what was happening in DC - politicians did not worry what was happening in KC;
Politicians and Pro-choice supporters rallied and smiled in a park - while the poor unborn died in the dark;
It was a time of "me" first - it was a time of shame.
It was an era of petitions submitted - it was an era of petitions abused;
We had tax-abated luxury condos provided for - we had affordable housing not provided for;
It was an era of foolishness - it was an era of more foolishness.
It was an time when the tourists were coming - it was a time when the residents were leaving;
It was a time the elite enjoyed a tax-abated luxury hotel - it was a time people endured living under underpasses;
It was a time of flashy frivolous display - it was a time of infrastructure decay;
It was a time when Jolie Justus gave Mayor Sly James a grade of A minus - it was a time Kansas City became the 5th most dangerous City in America!
It was a time to do away with - it is a time to heal.
Write-in Mayoral Candidate, Clay Chastain.
