TKC MUST SEE!!! CAPITALISM HAS FAILED: KANSAS CITY CHIEFS QB PATRICK MAHOMES SHOWS OFF EPIC SHOE ROOM!!!



Recently, a TKC reader reminded us that every nation has a mix of financial systems and there is not a single government on the earth which operates by any "pure" economic model . . .

Translation: Most Americans, black or white, have a sick grandma on welfare.

That being said, there's no denying that critics of capitalism are gaining momentum in the popular culture as the election approaches.

A few of the more eloquent and persistent examples: 

Brookings: Capitalism is failing. People want a job with a decent wage – why is that so hard?

Guardian: ‘We’re here to win’: US democratic socialists move to center stage

Financial Times: ‘Savage capitalism’ takes hold in crisis-hit Venezuela

Accordingly and after a hard days work . . .

Check out the brightest shining home town star proudly displaying an expensive collection of luxury sneakers mostly manufactured in Southeast Asia. The custom wardrobe is located in his local mansion paid for by an EPIC salary that's subsidized, in part, by Kansas City taxpayers. That's right, if you live in KC, you helped to pay for those kicks.

More to the point . . .

ENJOY THIS KANSAS CITY CAPITALISTIC FAILURE FOR A STAR PROPPED UP BY LOCAL GOVERNMENT & FAMOUS FOR THROWING AROUND A BALL!!!

I'm sure some readers might think they'll be able to make sense of it in a society wherein teachers are forced to crowdfund supplies.

Here's a much more kind description . . .

"Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is planting roots in KC by building his dream home. Included is a new sneaker closet that shows off all his favorite kicks, from Yeezys to Game of Thrones Ultraboosts. He has 180 pairs in TOTAL šŸ˜³"

Take a look:

Mahomes is gay?

How could any straight guy have 180 pairs of shoes?
(and I see a sunglass collection there too)

MAHOMOS

Good for him, he did what most couldn’t do, make a shit load of money, he earned it so he can do whatever the hell he wants, I ain’t mad at him.

I’d do the same thing if I had money, except not with shoes. I wonder what he has for a car...... or cars!

Byron Funkhouser said...

I wonder if he supports raising the minimum wage?

At the risk of stating the obvious, how many shoes another citizen owns is none of my concern.

We worship sports stars too much. We make them Gods. The average person who works an average job is just as important as him. A nurse who helps people does more for humanity. There will always be a losing and winning team in any football game. We just don't know the outcome. A football player only has value if he is healthy and able to play well. Otherwise he is worthless to a team. Its the ultimate in a superficial temp job. He could be injured in practice this week and never play again. During WWII, all games were cancelled. So players were nobody special, and they were sent off to war.

^^^ best comment @ 12:34. If Mahomes didn't want us talking about his shoes, he wouldn't have shared them with mainstream media.

Guy is not a hero. He's kind of a heel.

Bwahahahahahaha!

I think the charity work that he does makes up for this kind of indulgence. Sure, it's silly but he's earned it and probably pays a huge tax bill for all of this junk. Good for him. Go Chiefs!

"After Imelda left MalacaƱang Palace, she was found to have left behind 15 mink coats, 508 gowns, 888 handbags, and 3000 pairs of shoes. Some news reports estimated that there were up to 7,500 pairs, but Time magazine reported that the final tally was only 1,060."

His girlfriend must have his eyes stuck open with toothpicks like in "A Clock Work Orange" and is making him watch re-runs of "Sex In The City" until his eyes fuckin bleed.

How many pairs of shoes do you need? It's "Conspicuous Consumption" in conjunction with a Kardashian/Narcissism complex brought on by the empty space left in our national soul, now filled with prideful self loathing.

"Conspicuous consumption is a term introduced by the Norwegian-American economist and sociologist Thorstein Veblen in his book “The Theory of the Leisure Class” published in 1899.

The term refers to consumers who buy expensive items to display wealth and income rather than to cover the real needs of the consumer.

A flashy consumer uses such behavior to maintain or gain higher social status. Most classes have a flashy consumer affect and influence over other classes, seeking to emulate the behavior.

The result, according to Veblen, is a society characterized by wasted time and money.

This boom has seen a binge of consumption that for the first time human longevity might turn down because we are eating ourselves to death. Death by consumption used to explain a fatal case of tuberculosis, now it could explain the rise in obesity, diabetes and cancers.

That is, conspicuous displays of consumption and leisure were the means to demonstrate one’s superiority. Whether you were rich or poor everyone attempts to impress others and seek to gain advantage through “conspicuous consumption” and the ability to engage in “conspicuous leisure”.

How dare you trash our GOD tony botello!

You need to resign! Get the heel out our city!!

Proud Son of a Wobbly said...

Nice to see "Commie Chuck" quoting Veblen, a notorious "Progressive" and "Socialist"!

Now, I he'd only take some of his Google searches a step further and actually read some of the works he quotes from, he might rid himself of some of the bullshit he believes and join the Democratic Party.

But Chuck did take one scrap of Veblen to heart, the author cited "lawns" as a common American example of "conspicuous consumption", demonstrating publicly that the owner was wealthy enough to put land to a non-productive use.
That's why Chuck doesn't have a grassy lawn, but has instead covered his with old tires, trash bags and empty Bud Lite cans,

Just think of the cost to build that room out just for shoes? That boy ain't wired right in the head. Then he makes a video gloating over his whatever you want to call it obsession or foot fetish. Fuck him, this is why I think Pro Sports people are paid way too much money and are basically stupid.

Casey Chuck Taylor WINS best comment!

Funny to see all the fanboy bitches step up quick to defend this ambiguously gay fashionista entertainer who's nothing more than the son of a professional athlete, paid by a billionaire taxpayer-subsidized owner.

When he breaks his arm leaving a late-night talk show, I'll be laughing my ass off.

You Pathetic Pukes Make Me Want To Puke said...

7:52 you have no idea how Chuck lives do you? But you sure would like to think you do. By the way hater boy what you said hinges on legal slander of Chuck by making a false spoken statement damaging to his reputation. You ass clowns call him and Dave and a some others here stupid and everything else your pea brains can dream up while trying to make up for your own personal shortcomings. You are probably one of those who attacks Tracy making your neanderthal caveman grunts and chest beating thinking you're such a manly man as you make rude remarks that would piss you off to no end if someone said those things to your wife or daughter. Tracy has been around KC area for a number of years and is nobody's fool even if she does have funny colored hair sometimes. Hell women been dying their hair weird colors since the days of the pharaohs. I saw yesterday someone giving Super Dave crap about having a say in KC affairs. Guess what you losers/haters he is in partners with others on ground located in KC. He's also been known to hand out a lot more to charitable groups than one would think he is capable of doing but you would never know it since unlike certain ball players he doesn't beat his chest and brag. Hell the last Mayor of KC didn't even own any property in the city and I doubt the current one does either. Tracy owns a home and I bet Chuck as well is a homeowner and property tax payer in KC. So you pathetic losers/Byron all need to maybe seek out some real professional help in dealing with your non supported hate on those who just might know more than you and actually give a damn about things in this town other than running around trash talking those who put critical discussion on matters out there for all to see.

"Puke Boy" pukes again @9:30!

Does he think that any of the ranting going on here has any significance at all in the Real World?

Another of Tracy's Anonymous "Cowards" said...

Maybe he's just convinces himself that the didactic polemics that Chuck, Super Dave and Tracy constantly post have relevance or could remotely be considered as part of discussions.

If smacking down a closed-minded monomaniacal bigot for his or her fantasies isn't allowed, this site becomes just another right-wing monolog Fairyland.

^^^So consider yourself smacked down, you closed minded monomaniacal leftist bigot.

In 30 years the average person will not even know who this guy is. Fame and fortune is brief. Especially with sport stars. Let him spend his money how he wants. His time is limited.

Uh he’s a grown-ass man and if he wants to collect sneakers who could gripe about it but a resentful prick.
