Fuck off 1:03, how about you leave if you do in fact live in Kansas City. Move away we don't need your crap around here. You're a leading factor of why this town is swirling down the shitter. Thanks to people like Tony,Dave, Chuck and Tracy and a host of others who aren't afraid to point out the real facts related to things while using their names to do so. What's your name pussy? Who are you to think we even care what you think? Go away pussy, I'm sick of your crap.

^^Blah blah blah...suck it stupor dave! 1:03 is right, you don't live in KC so your opinion about it doesn't matter. Quit telling the residents of this town, who have actual skin in the game, to get get excited for politicians when your punk-ass doesn't even live here. You see the irony in that don't you dummy? Another point, I'm quite sure "Super" dave isn't your real name either. Go find your own town's shitty blog and fuck that one up for change. How about that?
