KANSAS CITY STAY AT HOME ORDER CRUMBLES AS NORTH KANSAS CITY SPEEDS UP CORONAVIRUS REOPEN!!!



The May 15th "Stay At Home" coronavirus extension ordered by Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas is now nothing more than a civic myth.

To wit and within spitting distance of the Downtown Kansas City skyline . . .

NKC REJECTS THE MAY 15TH KCMO STAY AT HOME ORDER AND WILL NOW REOPEN MORE THAN A WEEK EARLY!!!

Here's the report from KMBC . . .

North Kansas City following Clay County, walking stay-at-home order back to May 3

Deets:

"North Kansas City said Clay County public health officials are developing a plan for the first phase of “community recovery and reopening.”

"Officials said in general, those guidelines will follow plans outlined in Gov. Mike Parson’s “Show Me Strong” recovery plan for the state, however, Clay County officials will be working with local leadership on any changes they feel necessary."

Accordingly . . .



This is absolutely a slap in the face to Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas and a glimpse at worsening partisan divisions that negate any metro civic public health decisions.

Freedom lives in North Kansas City

^^^ No, just a bunch of retirees who should really think about investing in some PPE no matter the cost.

Yeah freedom to die. Go for it.

Watch as the numbers skyrocket now. It won't be "if" - but "when" and "how high."

It's simple math.

All of the numbers and models have been wrong. You have believed bad science @11:44 and you don't have much proof to back up your claims. Show the proof and don't just make threats. That would be more relevant.

@11:44AM, No one is forcing you to go outside. You can stay home and be scared of your own shadow to your hearts desire.

I can't believe the idiotic comments on here that people want to keep the economy closed over a virus that has gone down in numbers of affected people. Those numbers were exaggerated in the first place. Open a business and keep it clean wear a mask if you want to and you won't get the virus. But the idiots who want to keep everything closed are hypochondriacs that would rather see an economic collapse. Which is the lesser of two evils?

12:00PM, No one is forcing you to go outside. You can shelter in our home for the rest of your life. You can hide out and be scared permanently. Let the rest of us work. Sounds fair?

That's fine. Reopen. Just don't whine when you get sued when someone dies because they came into your business, which you were told not to reopen yet.

No. Its not fair. I don't want you spreading it to people who I might come into contact with.

If someone dies from this, you do realize there are people you will want revenge. Don't you?

12:03pm -I don't want to go to work with Deplorables defiantly refusing social distancing, wearing a mask, hand washing, etc. YOUR selfishness is causing the continued virus spread. If Deplorable scumbags would have adhered to the directive 5 weeks ago, we'd be in the clear by now. Thanks, jackass.

@12:16PM, See your not understanding me. No one is forcing you to go outside. You can stay home hiding in fear all you want. That way you won't be in contact with anyone who has the virus.

As for if someone dies, why don't you care about the death of people who will die due to higher crime, drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, domestic violence and murder thanks to millions not working.

Why don't you care about them?

@12:20 Again, no one is forcing you to go outside. You can stay inside in fear.

The nightmare scenario you're talking about didn't happen in New York. They had enough ventilators and they have enough hospital beds.

Wash your hands.

Anonymous said...

It's interesting political theater. Lucas and Krewson (STL mayor) knew that Parsons intended to reopen Missouri soon, and hoped to force his hand by extending the closure in the two largest urban centers in the state. On the KC side, Lucas thought the MARC alliance would go along with it as they did last time. No such luck, and in a Metro as large as KC with as many diverse government entities, the KC order might as well not exist. Who do you know that doesn't cross city / county lines on a daily basis?

It was apparent this was going to happen when Lucas had to announce his extension alone. When Clay Co, the UG, JoCo, and Jackson Co refused to join into a combined announcement, the writing was on the wall.

Quinton doesn't care when we open Kansas City. He spends most free time in Lawrence at his fovorite gay bar.

Exactly, 1:00. People are acting like this virus kills 1 out of 3 people infected. They see news outlets that show the same stock footage of a covered body on a stretcher with two guys wearing masks... All the "models" (that turned out wrong), all the temporary morgues (that didn't end up being used), navy hospital ships (that weren't even used), etc..

Which is worse?

Well, remember the old adage: If you don't have your health, you don't have anything.

Does that help?

This is all proof we didn't have the best economy ever.

Missing one paycheck shouldn't cause inability to pay rent and a run to charity food pantries.

Keep it shut down and draw on your great 401K returns for awhile.

No it doesn't help. If you are against people working then kindly give out your address so your house can be robed and not mine. Thanks.

If you had a 401k you would realize the market has rebounded a bit. If you had been invested at least 4 or 5 years you would still be in positve territory. So yeah you could take a hardship loan. But we realize you don't have such account.

Donald J Trump said...

I happen to just disagree only in time--in timing. I disagree. When you have spas, beauty parlors--and I love these people. I know the people from spas and beauty parlors, tattoo parlors. Bikers for Trump, a lot of tattoos. I love them. I love these people. And barbershops, these are great people.

But you know what? Maybe you wait a little bit longer till you get into a phase 2. So, do I agree with him? No. What I do that? No, I'd keep them a little longer. I want to protect people's lives.

But I told him I totally disagree.

^^^ You're right, if you started investing under Obama, you would be way ahead.

Trump and his bear markets, yeah, not really.

But I'm sure you can afford to stay closed with all your Trump made profits from his best ever roaring economy and tax cuts. Or are you one of the unlucky forgotten ones that has to risk death and get back to work?

NKC gets it.

Fear is the oxygen of government control.

These measures were initially well intentioned to flatten the growth of new cases so as not to burden the health care system. That is happening now.

The left has unfortunately now gotten an erection upon seeing how commie government has the ability to control private behavior with fear desiminated via their commie allies in the media.

The Honeymoon period for Mayor Q is over. I wonder if he will ever admit that his shutdown was a mistake. I know who I will not be voting for next time. Alright everyone, who should be the next Mayor of Kansas City? Can we please pick someone with half a brain this time around?

Byron Funkhouser said...

Idiot. Are you going to return your socialist welfare check?

Anonymous said...

Although the initial shutdown was well intentioned it clearly lacked any critical thinking or real insight on the Mayor's part. The idea was not to fill up the hospitals however the hospitals are not even close to capacity in Kansas City and old people are still dying from it, even with the best treatments. If Covid is going to kill you, it will kill you. You can't run from it. You can't hide. Social isolation only peels off the bandaid instead of ripping it off quickly. Unfortunately we are now seeing the real devastation that it has caused this city which was completely preventable. It is unlikely we will recover from the mass unemployment, hundreds of businesses closing and increased homelessness anytime soon. Good job Mayor Lucas! (sarcasm)

The notion that Luca, as the mayor of KCMO, issues orders for the metro is laughable.
KCMO represents not even 20% of the metro's population and, given its track record, priorities, competence, and credibility, pretty much anything coming from KCMO city government is appropriately discounted by the great majority of the population.
The local media continue to slobber and hang on Lucas' every word, but that just goes to show ho out of touch and desperate they are .
How about fixing, or at least addressing, the big big issues of municipal responsibility in KCMO and leave the regional issues to adults with much more credibility?
Selfies, press conferences, TV spots, endless celebrity appearances, and now, neighborhood tail gating.
What a joke!

Bryon, This is "Idiot" responding. I will cash my TRUMP check as soon as I get it in about 3 months. You are not an idiot like me, but even idiots like me understand that if the government keeps printing money and handing out socialist welfare checks they will be worthless due to inflation caused by an absence of productivity and economic growth. Think about it.

Love Idiot.

NKC, Parson, and Trump all think they can have a ribbon cutting grand reopening and things will be just fine.

Cheer this all you want, but the reopening will be a thud.

Businesses that were on thin margins in good times won't recover when only 30% of their business returns. Workers living paycheck to paycheck won't survive returning to work with reduced hours and big health care bills when they get sick.

But the MAGA folks didn't have a plan going into or during this crisis, so it's no surprise they have no plan for a recovery. Good luck with that.

Are Democrat Party's Frank White and Quentin Lucas going to waive our 2020 property tax bill since they closed the city and small businesses and Kansas City working Americans cannot earn revenues?

President Trump gave us back $1200 of our taxes for each of us plus $600 per child for working Americans.

Trump has our back, the Democrat Party does not as they just keep raising taxes for their fat salaries and developer friends.

It actually is nothing like the flu because Covid's death rate is LOWER than the flu's!!! lol. How good does the flu vaccine do anyways? We had 60,000-100,000 flu deaths last year with the vaccine. Also new studies show millions already have herd immunity and anti-bodies from Covid. They are estimating Covid has been here since December and millions have had it and recovered. Try keeping up please.

Yeah listen to the science guys on the jew tube who said we would have 2.5 million dead by now, 200 to 500K if we did it perfectly.

House and Senate Democrats put the $1200 and $500 per child refund in the relief bill.

The Senate GOP only wanted $600 per person refunds.

Trump wasn't in favor of refunds and just wanted a payroll tax holiday (not a great plan when people are laid off and not paying payroll taxes).

Now you know the rest of the story and can acknowledge the correct people.
