TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! SHOW-ME REDUX KANSAS CITY BAR SHUTDOWN THREAT AMID WORSENING MISSOURI COVID-19!!!
We've notice quite a few Kansas City conservatives blaming coronavirus shut downs, restrictions and mask orders on local leadership but the reality is that the mandates come from on high and are evident in recent White House dox.
To wit . . .
LATEST GUIDANCE FROM WHITE HOUSE COVID-19 TASK FORCE WARNS OF ANOTHER MISSOURI BAR SHUT DOWN AND UPHOLDS MASK MANDATES!!!
Here's the word that has been strangely downplayed by local media . . .
Springfield News-Leader: White House task force says Missouri needs bars closed, 'mask mandates across the state'
In the report dated Aug. 30 obtained by the Center for Public Integrity, the task force noted that once again the state was in the “red zone” for number of new cases per capita, the 10th-highest figure in the country.
To remedy that, the task force recommended among other things that “(b)ars must be closed” and “(m)ask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”
To wit . . .
WESTPORT AND KANSAS CITY INDEPENDENT VENUES ARE UP AGAINST THE WALL AND UNDER THREAT OF ANOTHER PANDEMIC SHUT DOWN VIA WHITE HOUSE DOX AND NOT JUST ORDERS FROM LOCAL OFFICIALS LIKE MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS OR DOC ARCHER!!!
Whilst campaign and partisan hack slap fighting is fun, there's simply no denying that statement on the need for bar closings originated from the White House and contradict a great deal of chatter from our local Republican friends.
More importantly, without regard to political chatter, our Sunday Special conversation with a few Midtown denizens reveals that another round of Westport shut downs threatens to absolutely DEVASTATE this town's oldest party district and permanently close more bars & restaurants.
Here's the word . . .
"Another shut down will kill all of the progress we've made over the past few years. You might as well keep the lights off at half of the newer places that people love. So far we've managed to cling to life and with the help from loyal customers. But, without a doubt, another bar shut down destroys Westport."
