Amid COVID-19, These Kansas City Restaurants Have Closed Their Doors for Good

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on small businesses across the country, and the restaurant industry has been hit especially hard. In Kansas City, dozens of spots have sadly elected to close their doors for good, from cocktail bars to burger joints to some of the city's most acclaimed restaurants.

Thanks Democrats.

The Democrat party does not understand how business operates or where tax money comes from. This is because the only people that take government jobs at any level cannot get hired in the private sector.

^^Whaaat? The best course of action is for the Government to just hire everybody that can't find a job anywhere else. The taxes collected from this would more than pay for all the programs that are needed. Republicans just don't get it.

This current crop of white people in the US are so dumb and out of touch with reality that they don't even understand that not wearing masks and staying home would help bring the virus under control so that businesses can reopen safely. Actually its not that they are dumb, it is that their hearts and actions are so evil and ungodly that they are blinded to the truth.

So, who supports the businesses while they are all shut down for the benefit of the Democrat party? You must have a government job.

There are some nice places on that list. I haven't been to downtown KC this year, but I have always enjoyed going to the Flying Saucer for business meetings, so will miss that when and if face-to-face meetings are a thing again. The Gaslight Grill has been a favorite for years, as was Plaza III before relocating to OP. Often enjoyed brews at the Hopcat as part of pub crawls. Eh, I hate to be too cynical, but we should do the smart thing and protect older people, those with conditions that make them especially susceptible to COVID, etc., and just get these places open again. Basement dwellers like Joe Biden want this economy shut down for their sole talking point of this election. I sincerely hope it backfires.

9:46 only difference is black people in the US are not in control of everything, and did not vote in the likes of trump and the republican party. It was pretty dumb for trump to get into office and declare economic war against China. Now they have unleashed Covid 19 on the US and white people are sitting here looking and talking stupid. Truth hurts

10:08 what kind of warped logic are you spouting?

President Trump initiated trade sanctions on Communist China to force them to discontinue their slave labor products on American shores which cost AMERICAN workers their jobs.

So 10:08 is saying because President Trump is trying to protect American worker jobs; Communist China unleashed the bio corona virus on Europe and the United States and somehow that is President Trump's fault.

What kind of warped logic Marxist Democrats have. The blame should be on Communist China for developing the man-made corona virus disease in their Wuhan lab and either accidentally or intentionally releasing it on the world.

President Trump immediately banned travel from Communist China when the virus broke out and Biden / Pelosi said Trump was racist towards China for enacting the travel ban to protect American lives. Democrats sure have short memories.

President Trump immediately declared emergency manufacturing of ventilators, masks, PPE and a vaccine be developed. The CDC and NIH; typical government bureaucrats, did not have a plan in place for a pandemic although Fauci and Birx have been in their government jobs for 40+ years.

^^ During the Presidential debate; Joe Biden's corona virus solution was to put plexi glass in restaurant booths, social distancing and wearing masks.

Oh wait a minute, we are already doing that.

10:59 makes several misstatements in his/her "cut-and-paste" posting copied from Breisbart.

1) Trump ordered a ban on direct flights from Beijing-Los Angeles, but not on the most heavily travelled routes Beijing-Hong Kong-Los Angeles or Beijing-Macao-Los Angeles. This was NOT a Travel Ban!

2) The NIH and CDC HAD plans put in place under Obama, but Trump ordered them defunded and dismantled by Executive Order as part of his "draining of the Swamp" in the first year of his reign. His orders for increased production included no funding and no plans for distribution.

3)No one "blames Trump" for the existence of the Coronavirus, he is being blamed for not taking timely actions, a FACT he has admitted was deliberate on his part, and for the weakness and flip-flopping that happened on his part when he finally did take action.

Face facts, he was not competent to manage this crisis!

10:59 are you capable of an independent thought?

12:32, all the people on those flights had to hurry back to the USA so they could celebrate Chinese New Year in person with Nancy Pelosi and Bill De Blah-sio. Biden called Trump a xenophobe for the travel restrictions he did put in place. I do not recall Biden, then a candidate for the Democratic Party's nomination, suggesting that Trump should take even more drastic action. Why didn't he?

Your second point is mixed up. The duties of the CDC office that got reorganized did not disappear. They just happened in a different place. But that did not stop the CDC from totally screwing up early response test kits. Unknown how you could suppose that the CDC that fucked up a relatively routine job like approving and providing Covid test kits could suddenly exhibit such fantastic expertise that it could stop an epidemic in its tracks.
