So PUTA is trying to get us to eat other parts of the body?

If Quinton Lucas is getting prank calls he deserves it the guy is an idiot.

Trump has more supporters now than he did when he began his term. After all the democrats are supporting China and the WHO. Want to blame someone for this virus blame the democrats they are behind this pandemic too. They have funded the labs in China for years. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to know why.

anonymous said...

Cite your sources Pal - Trump's "popularity" has been dropping according to every poll, including Rasmussen, the one he constantly claims to be the most accurate.

And how are the Democrats funding labs in Chine? What is your source for that?

Everything you posted sounds (and smells)like more of the far-right mythology spewed out by Russian-backed Right Wing Conspiracy Pimps who keep trying to divide this Country.

You know, Trump's buddies in Russia and china who are now spreading the lie that the US developed Coronavirus around the World.

I recall when all the polls said Hillary would be wiping Trump off the floor in 2016. Pollsters should be offering refunds for their horrible predictions.

Anonymous said...

Hillary was unpalatable for many moderate Republicans and other groups. Biden is not. The problem with pollsters back when Hillary was running is most only looked at national numbers. National numbers are worthless, obviously, given the fact that Hillary had 3M more votes nationally. Many polls, however, show Biden leading in many swing states. Not too mention, moderate Republicans are fucking done with Trump. The guy is a dumpster fire.

still amazes me the KCI POS site plan, how SOM came up with that is dumbfounding.
KCI will be a great facility, no doubt.

bunch of fckn lawyers fcked up the airport. Just terrible, politically rushed & half baked from the start. What is the traffic pattern when it is finished? A loop around the tower and views of asphalt where the other two terminals were or will it be more unused surface parking?

SOM your a bunch of fuckn assholes.

No excuse either for squeezing out SPirit airlines either, the cheaper, new competitor of Southwest, which ain't very cheap anymore. What kind of airport facility squeezes out other airlines? Just couldn't figure out how to tear down two terminals at the start so dipshit SOM could have more space to build a better smaller airport? That's the plan right to rip out the other two terminals? Does any cocksucker at 12th and oak even know?
everyone knows that construction industry hates architects, ya couldn't hate on the architects and their design before ya fell all over one another to build a crap half baked scheme?

if the city is ripping out terminal b& C, tell me there was no way to THINK a little fucking bit and have phased construction that allowed use of the site of terminal B instead allowing a terminal that was going to be ripped out to constrict the new facility at site of terminal A, turning it into a awkward shaped fucked up POS.

KC drives me nutz.

if the city had taken the time to do a master plan for the whole facility, still believe it would have been feasible to reuse two of the terminals joined with by a center singular TSA area/shops/restuarants,with same walking distances as the new terminal. THe third terminal site? I duuno, a hotel, rental cars, livestock shipping, major cargo hub for the region, that's what the master plan is supposed to figure out before turning the facility into a political fuck fest for/of/by lawyers.

Oh sure KCMO fucks up everything it touches but this huge project will magically "be a great facility". We don't need it anyway. CANCEL KCI
