TKC FACT CHECK!!! HISTORIC SUPER BOWL VICTORY FOR CHIEFS DOESN'T SOLVE SERIOUS KANSAS CITY PROBLEMS!!!
While Kansas City was watching the Super Bowl, scarfing down BBQ and guzzling booze there was deadly stabbing in the urban core. In another vicious example of local real life, earlier in the day police started an investigation into a corpse burned at one of many local homeless camps.
In a desperate move to disguise their own failings . . .
KANSAS CITY POLITICOS CALLOUSLY ATTEMPT TO UTILIZE SUPER BOWL VICTORY TO BOLSTER THEIR OWN FADING POPULARITY AND AGENDA!!!
One example out of many . . .
"Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas and Jackson County Executive Frank White invite all fans to the Chiefs Kingdom Champions Parade to celebrate our Super Bowl victory! #chiefsparade"
Take a look:
More deets here: CHIEFS KINGDOM CHAMPIONS PARADE
More importantly, we remind gentle readers . . .
THE SUPER BOWL VICTORY BELONGS TO THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS, THEIR ORGANIZATION, FANS AND NOBODY ELSE!!!
The bandwagon will be overflowing during the parade but the shared glory represents a dangerous proposition . . .
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS' SUPER BOWL WIN WILL BE USED TO JUSTIFY DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT SCHEMES THAT ARE FINANCIALLY UNSUSTAINABLE WITHOUT MASSIVE TAX HIKES & SUBSIDY!!!
Already this town earns a disappointing grade for fiscal health and the intoxicating glitz and glamour of the Super Bowl threatens to distract local residents who always get left holding the bill.
And so, on this morning when so many residents are nursing a hangover from Kansas City's biggest party night in half a century we must remind readers.
- Super Bowl victory won't solve the worsening Kansas City homicide crisis.
- Football glory can't help Jackson County residents pay disproportionate property tax increases that DID NOT follow Missouri regs for physical inspection.
- Civic pride can't resolve a structurally imbalanced budget that still hasn't allowed police to fulfill staffing goals they set back in 1968.
