KANSAS CITY QUESTION: WILL COVID-19 CURFEW CRACKDOWN SAVE LIVES OR KILL LOCAL JOBS FOREVER?!?!

Right now we want to reach out to our blog community for insight and perspective on local COVID-19 shut downs that dominated the discourse this week.

However, we should note one additional fact that has so far been excluded from the conversation . . . 

KANSAS CITY RESTAURANT & BAR OWNERS THREATEN: MANY LOCALS WILL NEVER REOPEN BECAUSE COVID REGS REVEALED 12TH & OAK HATES SMALL BIZ!!!

The justification for this argument is that so many small biz believe rules have been enforced unequally with box stores earning less oversight, Mayor Q never sought to build a consensus among small biz before enacting curfew regulations and city hall has repudiated conservative-leaning small biz owners by attempting utilize local suffering in arguments to support progressive attempts to further controversial stimulus plans at the federal level.

And so . . .

SMALL BIZ THREATENS THAT LOCAL PARTY PLACES WILL RELOCATE TO THE SUBURBS TO AVOID CONTINUED CITY HALL PERSECUTION!!! SO WE ASK: HAS THE CLUMSY COVID CRACKDOWN KILLED JOBS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN SAVED WITH MORE PANDEMIC COOPERATION FROM MAYOR Q???

To be clear . . .

Nobody is saying that more regulation and precautions aren't necessary. The top complaint that we're hearing is that the rules are arbitrary and lean on local small biz more than anyone else. Again, even worse, there was no effort to build trust, cooperation and input from small biz by 12th & Oak . . . Just mean tweets and bold pronouncements from the Mayor.

It's not just in KC.

It's every big city.

American economy is shrinking overall.

This is the new normal.

Bar business moving outside limits is the best thing that could happen in Kansas City. We need a safe place to party.

The mayor and council people don't understand small business because
they're career politicians who have never had real jobs,

Obviously covid only comes out at night so lets impose a curfew, that will save us all.

You are most likely going to catch that shit at the grocery store, church, or bar where people gather in large numbers indoors. Putting up a curfew is pretty fucking dumb but most of the people around here are also pretty fucking dumb and they don't wear masks.

Really, who needs to dine out or go to bars. Its kinda been "put" on us like secretarys day, bosses day, sending Hallmark cards to people who get new pets or have old ones that die, cards for promotions.

Just dont need it to survive.

I am saving $$$$ by staying home!

The boy blunder revealed too much yesterday. Not only does he not care about small businesses or the people who work at them, he struggles to believe that the owners and workers, who are often white, are not evil and selfish people. He believes that capitalists and white people are not deserving of any love or even pity because they are morally inferior to him. He really does.

skimming the sports sites ..I see where the Toronto Raptors signed Fred VanVleet, some black dude I never heard of,to an $84 Million dollar contract..

aww.too bad KC won't have those black multi-millionaires here , lecturing us on racism..White privilege etc etc

At least Jim Rowland never won a mayoral election!

KCMO electeds NEVER care much about small local business.
Not only have most of them never had actual jobs in the private sector, they all get their marching orders from the big-time Chamber swells and the development crowd.
It never changes.

Democrats cannot run cities, thats just the way it is and always has been; you want a decent town, vote anybody but a democrat

3:14, Fred Van Fleet played at Wichita State and was a key component of their final 4 run a few years ago. Unbelievably he was not drafted by any NBA team. But he's been one of the best sixth men in the league for a while.

Still, the Raptors chose wisely, Tampa over Kansas City. No comparison really.

Kill locals jobs and the entire city. The comeback will take years if ever. But that's O.K. because I would like to see KC shrink back down and get the transplants out of here.

Non-Professor Lucas and fake Dr. Archer are PATHETIC!

They don't understand fundamental facts concerning this coronavirus and the methods which do and do not mitigate it's transmission.

They are blind followers to those pushing this agenda.

They are delighted to push small businesses into bankruptcy, while simultaneously taking a hands-off approach to large corporate players like the Chiefs, WalMart, Target, QuikTrip, etc.

Lucas and fake Dr. Archer have drawn their overly-generous salary and benefits throughout 2020 without interruption, while most area residents have had their livelihood negatively impacted by the asinine response put in place to this coronavirus.

Trump is to blame. He place huge trade restrictions on China in early 2020. 2 months later Covid19 was here in the USA, a payback from China.

China has been around as a nation for 2,400 year - they do NOT lose!

(plus the Covid is great at curing China's overpopulation issues, they are lean and mean now!)

The "Delphi Method" is a research effort on any particular subject derived from the ancient Greeks. Essentially, it is a bottom up opinion based answer to a given question or problem, based on many individuals expertise and their empirical experiences. The opinions of those medical professionals on the front line, count, especially when, albeit, anecdotal, are in great numbers. Empirical evidence seems to mean nothing to the Narrative Engineers who rule over us all. The opinions of most, imo, rational scientists and everyday people in the streets, who are forced to endure the idiotic diktats of power hungry beadles, is that we can make our own decisions on our own health. Alas, most of the scientists and citizens, who don't comply with the Political Narrative of "Lockdowns" are shut down by Social Media and the MSM.

Covid 19's number one byproduct seems to be the creation of medical celebrities and politicians who dwell in a celestial empyrean where their unquestioned proclamations guide us through a plague that dare not be named (It's the fuckin Chinese Communist Covid 19 !!). The ne plus ultra star in this new and revered cadre of 'experts' is Dr. Anthony Fauci. Here in Kansas City, that heir to the throne, is Mayor Lucas. Day after day, we are cajoled and conditioned to extrapolate our certain demise if we sway from their august advice and consider any cure, relief or panacea for the current Chi-Com inflicted curse that confines us all to house arrest under threat of imprisonment and or, social opprobrium. Harboring dangerous ideas of returning to work and reacquiring any independence by way of the sweat of our brow and not waiting in situ and in supplication for deliverance from Local and Federal authorities is now considered anti-American anathema by our thought leaders in the media.

Fauci's record of predictions in this Covid 19 crisis has been, as has the WHO's record, desultory, pernicious and self serving. The Mayor's record with regard to THE CHINESE COMMUNIST COVID VIRUS, is one of compliance and strict adherence to the soup de jour guidelines from the idiots overseeing this disaster.

The real work (Thank You DJT for Operation Warp Speed), by real medical professionals has shed much needed light on the crux of the problem, what it is, how to deal with it and actions that should, and (This is important.) should NOT be taken. We should NOT shut down the city after, or, before 10PM (Remember just last night, when you got home at 9:58 PM and just missed getting the Covid?)

It could be, that as the worms in front of the camera turn, our friends in the medical profession in our own neighborhoods and hospitals will produce enough "anecdotal" evidence to bring the NARRATIVE about this pandemic to it's knees and force the 'experts' to free us from our prisons.

Covid19 is an humanly engineered virus. Bats do not mate with Pangolins. The fact that Covid is a bat virus with human CrispR inserted Pangolin DNA so it can attach to human beings and infect them shows its a bio-weapon. Designed and built by a human. Probably from China. China hates Trump and his trade agreements of 2020.

Consider Covid19 a modified SARS virus released by a bio-weapon lab to infect you and your family, to shut down your businesses, to restrict air travel, to ruin schools and the vacation, sports, and concert businesses. The designer no doubt got a HUGE bonus for getting this weapon right!

Agree that Covid-19 is a low-grade biological weapon. It spread too fast across the entire world for it not to be.

Sadly, it appears Joe Biden who is owned by the Communist Chinese will be our next President.

Between the Communist China Covid-19 virus, the global elites, and Corporate Media serving as their minister of propaganda; President Trump never had a legitimate chance.

However, the Communist Democrat Party still had to cheat with ballot harvesting, dead people voting, fictitious ballots, Dominion software etc.

Democracy in America ended on Nov 3, 2020. Remember that date.

Seems to a majority of people that democracy was RESCUED on Nov. 3, 2020.

Look who's going to have to be dragged from the White House on Jan. 20, 2021. Looking forward to that spectacle.

That pussy probably won't even attend Biden's inauguration.

6:37 Seeing how the Chinese red death virus is such a major concern for China joe and his hoe it would be appropriate to not have an inauguration don’t you think? After all you people have thrown a shit fit every time President Trump did something and you screamed bloody murder about it.

You go girl, go to your super spreader event and have fun then die amirite!

No way in hell that there should be a public inauguration period. Let’s wait and see what the good ole boy dr. Fauci has to say about all this!

6:54 you’re so cute when you’re angry! Lmao!

6:56 great point, ole dark winter joe should shut down any public events concerning the inauguration, he would have to admit it was all just a big giant scare tactic to get people to vote for the dimwit party after all, that’s what this whole thing is about, orange man bad and must go at all costs.

I too am looking forward to what Dr. Fauci has to say about all this, will they treat it like it’s one giant riot so then it’s ok or will he obey the dimwit command to party on? Either way it’s a dangerous situation for the public if it goes on and the narrative will be broken.

No thanksgiving no Christmas, the dimwits are anti religion and like obummer will not call it that in the years to come anyway, then there can’t be an inauguration either.

The Chinese needed a virus to get Trump out of office. Now they are happy as hell they can negotiate with a senile idiot for better trade deals. The Democraps and the Chinese are in the same bed. Wait until the Democraps start passing laws on gun ownership. China will be thrilled to know Americans are no longer armed nearly as well. Much over to take over the people. It's already starting on the left side of the aisle.

Alot of viruses never actually go away once you catch them. They stay in an isolated spot of your body, or nervous system, for decades, like the shingles virus. As you age, or have other illnesses, they are triggered and return. Often with fatal results if you have something like sepsis too. So all these people who think they have fully recovered from Covid19 "sniffles" may have repeated relapses as they age and have underlying health issues.

Of course the government doesn't want to panic anyone.....but SARS is very much studied and understood by the government.

California not putting up with addition biz-busters from Gov Newsome.
It’s coming- people can see leadership failing and Mayor 10-10-10 is an idiot.

Go ahead and close KC down Mayor 10-10-10.

Want to know what will happen? Just look at California:

After Newsom issued his order, several California sheriffs said they had no plans to enforce the curfew.

That’s a big F-U to the local mayor and the protests are starting. No way will people let little dumbfuck mayors trash all the small mom and pop restaurants and bars. If they do... that is exactly how Stalin and Karl Marx got their start!

Love the California parades and the middle finger waved to their Governor Nazi-Newsome!

Lucas has been betting on peoples lives that rapey joe and his hoe will give him lots and lots of federal dollars, it doesn’t help anybody but his family members, friends and developers, he’ll even have the nerve to raise taxes on people who lost their jobs and businesses, it’s how stupid he is and the dimwit party is.

Mayor Quinton Lucas, who presented all the promise in the world to be one of the greats, has found himself in over his head. Please, Lucas, for the love of God resign and go back to KU. You are not helping. You are killing the life out of family owned small businesses. Why . Are you just not what you seemed to be. I always wanted politicians to take the Wonderlic exam, independently administered. I think now you are a personality that people have accommodated but now regret. Please leave the Mayor’s office. Have a heart. You are a nice kid but being Mayor is not what you should be doing.
