Anyone with a state photo ID and who is over age 65 should be allowed to ride all public transportation in Kansas City for free.

If that taxpayers nightmare street car is free for all then the dang buses for should be free for our senior citizens all over Kansas City.

^^You don't even live in KC, so your opinion doesn't count!! Go find a blog in your own city to fuck up!

7:37 how about reading what he said before acting like the ass you are. Guessed you missed the all over Kansas City part. Besides the Super one owns property in the city so how about you going somewhere and starting your own hate blog.

7:11, I don't agree. Older people as a group have much higher net worths than younger people. Of course there are individual exceptions in all groups, but on the whole seniors are better able to pay for their own bus fares than are much younger riders.

With the amount of money KCMO's transportation officials waste we could have bought a car for every single person who actually has to get to where they need to be.

Wait, you mean that house on East 77th isn't where Super Dave lives. I for sure figured that was him in that video.

FTR, I agree with Dave, Senior Citizens should get free bus passes.

Milli the Kid, 7:37 & 8:52, coming strong out of the gate this morning. The ultimate irony is Milli calling out someone who doesn't live in KC, but owns property and pays taxes in KC at the same time Milli is living in his parents basement not paying a cent into the KC coffers. I don't live in KC but get hit with biz tax and earnings tax.

^^^He lives in a mental institution. With weekend home visits that never go well.

^^and yet you continue to talk about him. He wins. Weird.

Milli the Kid, 10:12, don't refer to yourself in the third person if you're not royalty, its weird.

^^and yet, 10:12, you're talking about yourself as "him" in that post, and you're not fooling anyone with your usual WEIRDNESS!
