TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY MOTORISTS RESIST RAMPANT ELITIST CORONAVIRUS STREET BLOCKADES!!!



During the coronavirus shut down, Mayor & Council enacted a sketchy bit of legislation without much input from the public.

Here's a reminder:

Kansas City officially launched its Open Streets Program on April 23, 2020. The program consists of several parts:

- Neighborhood open streets permit 
- Implementing automatic pedestrian crossings at over 100 intersections in high-pedestrian areas
- Four longer “local traffic only” corridor closures sponsored by the city
- Roadway closures in some city parks

The most innovative piece of the program is the Neighborhood Open Streets permit. Kansas City Public Works collaborated remotely with the IT Department and the citywide permitting system, Compass KC, to create a new permit for anyone to obtain in the city’s neighborhoods. The permit was set up in our system in a matter of days and by the end of the second week, we had received over 20 permit applications.

The Neighborhood Open Streets permit is based on an existing permit format that waives several requirements including fees, neighborhood signatures and design drawings, and puts the onus on the applicant to provide barricades and signage. Our criteria for approving these permits includes streets with low traffic volumes and low speeds, limited to one block, and streets with no other city or utility work in the area. Additionally, each location must maintain access for local traffic, as well as emergency and delivery vehicles.

Accordingly . . .

THE REACTION TO STREET SHUTDOWNS HAS BEEN OVERWHELMINGLY NEGATIVE AND FRUSTRATED MOTORISTS PLEGE TO IGNORE THE SKETCHY SIGNAGE!!!

From a popular message board just now:

"This is hilarious. Which Karen put this up on 71st street? PS I’ll start driving down it every day now."

Another KICK-ASS reader writes TKC:

"What's with every other street in Brookside turned into a private drive? A few people act like they own the whole street and block access for everyone else with little or no approval from their neighbors. Brazen."

To wit . . .

Once again, Bike/Walk Kansas City activists push a traffic "solution" that doesn't really work in the real world. Amid widespread KCMO driver disrespect for these signs, local youngsters and pedestrians might be confronting MORE danger by putting their faith in politically correct civic activist posturing that doesn't account for the reality on local streets.

Developing . . .

Please be careful when driving. You really don't want to run over an innocent person.

Is there a false sense of confidence because of these signs? Yes. But the most important thing is to avoid accidents just to prove a point. Please drive carefully.

^^^ Tell that to Bike KC. They're the ones encouraging people to dart out into the middle of the street.

If you want to live on a private drive. Then pay for it. Don't inflict your will on everyone else Council Bunch needs to be retired before he can do more damage.

There was a city, many Breckenridge in Colorado that closed during the 1918 flu. They had no cases. Nobody could enter or leave. But no cases as the whole world lost millions. They blocked roads and posted signs and guards. It is a matter of life and death after all. More have died of covid than the nam war - by 40,000. Yes 40,000 more than the nam war. In 2 1/2 months

After a few photo-ops with a street crew, while wearing khakis and tie, Mayor Lucas resorted to dropping off bags of asphalt patch and forcing residents to repair their own streets!!!

We all know people who love to make prohibitive signs. That person at work ... do this don't do that..... This corona era has given that person true fulfillment.

If only President Fat Ass had heeded COVID warnings instead of playing golf and holding MAGA rallies ... all of this would have been avoided. Instead, 100,000 American dead. 39 million unemployed. Economy ruined. Public streets blocked off.

Thanks, Deplorable MAGATS!

Trump left the covid-19 response to the Health Departments of the individual states.

Apparently some people here think a president can suspend the constitution and ban human interaction because yet another flu epidemic has followed too predictable course.

Anonymous said...

Trump had the balls to close down flights from China and other places early on, unless they were U.S. citizens. He saved hundreds of thousands by doing so, even though the Dems called him racist. Obama would have been looking in the mirror and thinking how cool he looked if he would have been president at the time. Biden would have been looking in a mirror and thinking he found his long-lost twin brother.

Ditch Kobach. He can't even get elected in Kansas.

Attention Deplorable MAGATS! Nap time. Go to your cribs and the staff will bring your favorite blankies in a minute. Before nodding off, say a prayer for Rush Limpballs. His terminal cancer is progressing fast and he doesn't have much time. Maybe smoke a candy cigar in his honor. Probably got the cancer from nearby windmills. Such a tragedy.

Sweet dreams, MAGATS.

12:02 - You apparently have no idea how infectious diseases work. Fact: Travel Ban was Half Ass, which is pretty much like everything Trump does. Like, Trump U. Trump Steaks. Trump Airlines. The USFL. Casinos.....fucking Casinos. Places that basically print their own money...yep, Trump kills those off too.

So yeah, big old Trump balls to ban travel except for 40,000+ to come to the US and spread the disease while you play golf and jerk off at your fucking rube rallies and ignore and downplay the global pandemic.

Tell me where I'm wrong Trumptard. Own up that you voted for one of the stupidest fucking grifters on the planet dipshit. And now, the chickens have come home to roost.

Anonymous said...

Trump's ban meant many of those infected coming from China and other places were not coming here. Pretty straightforward, but you probably need a flowchart.

Anonymous said...

^^^Don't forget Trump also stole from his charity. Though I don't know, is that a win? I mean, he got money out of it I guess.

Can a Trumptard weigh in here....is that considered a win. Stealing from a charity and being banned from operating any charities in the future?

Oh, and for all you Benghazi Conspiracy fans - don't forget that the only el Qaida attack since 9/11 happened last year in Pensacola on Trumps/Pompeos watch.

If the President/SecofState were supposed to be held responsible for the (overseas) attack at Benghazi, who is to blame for allowing yet another Saudi Arabian to carry out this attack IN OUR OWN COUNTRY?

Lock em up!

Anonymous said...

2:52 - Yay, only a few hundred or couple thousand infected coming here and spreading it vs. 10's of thousands. And then sitting on your big fat Trump ass, playing golf and rallying with the dipshits and pretending it'll all go away.

That's helpful. If only thinking adult were running things.

2:54 - Trump wanted to invite the Taliban up to Camp David for some peace talks. Let that one stew around your little noggins Trumptards.

Anonymous said...

2:52 - why is it so hard to understand that a "ban" does nothing without follow up? You literally let thousands of carriers in the country scot-free to spread a virus.

A smart President would've put citizens and related who were coming home from China into quarantine or not allowed anyone at all.

Seriously, I think Trumpers get erections when you say border wall or travel ban.

2:49 when those 40,000 Americans and green card holders came back they were quarantined for 14 days, some at home and some at military bases. There, fixed it for your dumb ass.

2:52 does the Clinton foundation ring any bells in that empty noggin of yours?

2:54 Hillary is to blame for Benghazi and what happened in Pensacola was at a navy base committed by a lone crazy Muslim pilot, it’s not like their was any intel on one guy who did that on his own so.....

2:55 all white huh? and you know that how? And you have 100% solid undeniable truth huh?

Doctors are not telling us the whole truth. If you get Covid it weakens you, If you get diabetes later - it will be much more serious. If your an athlete, it will damage your lungs and you will not be able to play ever again. If you have any really serious health issues, it will make things worse. Your kids will have a shortened lifespan due to it going dormant and coming back later. They just dont want to tell you as it would cause panic. Smokers will be found to have the highest mortalilty.

@3:10 The Saudi Pilot was highlighted by the NSA due to his al Qaida connections when he first was proposed by the Saudi Government for "training" here. Their objections were overruled by the State Department (Pompeo) due to the fact he was remotely connected to the Saudi Royal Family, and he was allowed into this Country.

His continuing communications with al Qaida were monitored and continuously communicated to the State Department, with no action taken. Pompeo was the Secretary of State the entire time, and under the "Hillary Rule" created by the Right Wing screaming, he therefore bore the entire responsibility for the attack occurring.

One Saudi Arabian killer or Twenty, the same "rules" apply - Pompeo and Trump screwed up, or Obama and Clinton didn't - it's that simple.

Only Hubei Province travelers were quarantined for 14 days. Everyone else was free to go about their day.

The Clinton foundation has some of the highest ratings available from independent watchdog groups. Oh, and they haven't been disbanded and accused of stealing the funds the take in and oh yeah, forced to shut down. So you can go on and GTFOH with your bullshit. I'm sure the watchdog groups are all part of the cabal of George Soros funded entities, right?

Let's not get into a body count fight. The US tragically lost 4 Americans in Benghazi and Clinton sat down with Congress for over 30 hours. Will Trump or anyone in his administration who is ultimately in charge gonna sit?
Yeah didn't think so. So go fuck yourself.

Europe, aka, not "shithole" countries. If you can't see the difference, I can't help your dumb Trumpster ass.

Your guy fucking sucks, admit it. He's grifted you and it hurts and you want to cling to it because you'd look like a the fucking moron you are if your intelligent friends knew you were such a dumbfuck Trumptard. Just own it dummy.
