Just what he said theft. Fucking crazy someone needs to do something about this! There’s money for the street cars but we can’t feed people or fix homeless problems! But hey let’s put up something shiny and new while people starve! I hope all these people allowing this get killed by homeless hungry people!

Gawd Why? Nobody is interested in that train thingy. Let it go. Millions lining some public trough feeder... and when the money runs out, they’ll be back for more.

Don't worry folks. No problemo. The council has a plan to raise taxes again to cover all this.

It's not that much money in the big scheme of things; but tone deaf at best. KCMO has yet to acknowledge the revenue will be in a free fall. Endless babbling by Mayor Selfie about the fed bail out monies isn't going to fix the revenue shortfalls. So what if Jackson County and Clay County isn't doling out the money to the favor of KCMO. The scheme is already in the works to shuffle the monies around to fund pet projects. What exactly isn't going to be funded? The city has the revenue figures by wont make the revenue figures public...

Not one thought of saving that money to cover the loss of money over the past two months, effing morons, Kathryn shields is useless for the taxpayer but perfect as an easy Mark for the developers. Nothing changes around this shithole town.
