Here are some of the most important this week . . .

Petersucker was told to resign or be fired in a nasty public way, even the dimwit party knows now how stupid she is.

It doesn’t make sense for her to resign amid the current murder crisis to devote more time to her job, she hasn’t done anything for 10 yrs now so why pretend that she’s suddenly going to start caring and start doing something now.

Jean did the right thing for Jackson County and for the Democratic Party. She is a real leader, unlike so many others.

No, she's utterly incompetent and has displayed it nonstop for years.

Peters-Baker is a political hack of the very worst kind.
And resigning her chair of the Missouri Democratic Party in an election year is like the captain of the Titanic turning over his command just after he was told the ship was going to sink.
She's done a terrible job as prosecutor, was the proud "leader" who brought KC NoVa to town, which wasted loads of money, misdirected resources, was touted as "the answer" to the murder problem, and totally failed. She regularly under-charges in cases and loses any way.
And she, like all the other cowards, can't even bring herself to honestly identify the cause of the vast majority of homicides in the city.
She, like the elected and appointed KCMO folks, as well as the business community, the hand-wringing faith groups, the endless anti-crime nonprofits, the revs, the media, and most of all, the east side "leaders", is responsible for the carnage that has been unleashed on KCMO.
There's yet another job she should resign from.

Peters Baker has blood on her hands this women is nothing more than a weak idiot who doesn't want to deal with tyranny in the city she just wants to pander no matter who's life is taken including our police officers. so I think it's safe to say she is a murder. Live with that Jean!

4:48 is fucking little coward who anonymously insults a prominent woman because he's afraid.

This retard thinks men receive welfare.

Yes, he's my very own troll, so I'm trolling him right back.

In a moment, he'll be calling me bLieron, because he an asshole who's decided, without evidence, that I didn't deserve to receive disability benefits.

Ms. Baker is his other obsession.

Byron Funkhouser said...

P.S. Note the time.

Yes, this is the same person who thinks of me at 4:30 in the morning because he has no life, & no loved ones.
