As usual a lot of words came out of his mouth and somehow he managed to say nothing.

The Slyster continues to be someone who's standing in an eight foot hole of his own performance and still thinks he's reaching for the stars of celebrity and relevance.
KCMO is MUCH worse off for his tenure in many ways and the consulting gig has been a bust.
He even tried to get involved in raising taxes to fund education while he was mayor, a proposal that earned the rejection of every school district superintendent.
You really can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
Maybe he's trying to become Clay Chastain's wingman.
Sad.

Nobody needs that con man's advice on improving. He couldn't find his own ass using both hands and a GPS without having stop and ask for directions twice.

I don't need advice from a failed mayor.

Sly James should be in prison with all his cronies for gross malfeasance at minimum.

Who in Gods name would want to read anything that fool says? Just another black politician from Kansas City that thinks they know it all but are to stupid to raise the toilet seat.

6:06 AM The reason why the school tax he was pushing failed is because there was no transparency on where all the money would be going. Much like just about every other tax hike in this town. Ultimately it likely would have been another slush fund for the the city to dip into whenever it wanted to spend on more frivolous shit that didn't involve the schools it was supposed to be for or use to help finance private development (corporate welfare). It was one of the VERY rare tax hikes this city actually didn't approve as this city is usually an automatic "yes" vote for such things because the sheeple of this town LOVE paying higher taxes only to turn around and bitch about how their dollar doesn't go as far as they want it to.

ATTENTION SYLVESTER JAMES: STFU

Go quarantine yourself, you attention-whore.

After the mess you made in this city, you should remain in hiding or move elsewhere.

And please don't comment on the recent BLM protests, as you've spent your entire life attempting to run away from the black community and be accepted among whites.

Higher Taxes from the Democrat Party does not grow the Middle-Class.

Higher Taxes destroys the Middle-Class.

Taxes are a redistribution of wealth from those who work to the lazy bums that don't work but vote for the Democrat Party.

Great literature used to have wisdom, wit

Sly's plan to grow the middle class is to take so much money from rich people that they are no longer rich.

Sly James. Hated him. Except....He's about 10,000 times the mayor Quinton "Kneelin' Q-Ball" Lucas will ever be.

To be fair, the reason taxes are passed almost without fail is because the beneficiaries of handouts are not the ones that pay the tax. Only property owners should be permitted to vote on tax increases. Renters will always outnumber those who pay. Or get rid of the property tax and go full sales tax, that way everyone has skin in the game. This bastardized system we have now benefits the takers rather than payers.

Thanks.

He's a likely keynote at the convention.

Anybody know how one can get autographed copies as gifts?

They should probably just give that piece of shit-assed book out for free when you fill your tank up with gas.

Or

Perhaps people can use it for yard fertilizer. That may be a better use for it anyway.

Don't want to buy this rag but if someone would scan it into PDF I think a lot of us would do some fact checking?

Sly is just pissed off that they were outta $1 steaks at Dollar Tree...he wanted to get a few and grill the meat up to serve to impress the three white friends he has in Fairway. Or he could save em' to serve at the next B.S. "Diversity" conference he will be a panel participant on at Rockhurst.
