The first day of new Kansas City pandemic restrictions have sparked an explosion of local layoffs as small biz struggles to stay alive and has been forced to sacrifice workers amid declining revenue.

To wit . . .


This is a rough and CONSERVATIVE estimate that was done with the help of TKC readers, social media reports and a few local biz owners & workers sending notes our way.

So far, here's the breakdown . . .

- 25 employees were laid off in Westport on day one.

- 3 local hotels stopped hiring housekeepers and, in total, let go more than 50 people.

-  An event planner was forced to stop the employment of 10 part-time workers and up to 15 day workers for gigs during the holidays. 

- A local photog sent us a note and says he'll be forced to withdraw employment opportunities for 5 workers. 

- Because there will be fewer people out & about, insiders tell us that a local convenience store chain has decided to let go 30 more workers. 

- A KC car retail chain will be terminating 20 workers.

- Our friends at local, independently owned Mexican restaurants report that more than 75 employees will be laid off in the coming weeks. 

- An urban nightclub will announce a shut down later this week leaving close to two dozen workers looking for employment. 

Also . . .


Many of these folks will be forced to take a pay cut and will certainly lose money whilst looking for work. 

Moreover, these aren't just numbers, these are REAL PEOPLE enduring economic suffering because of this order and they're lashing out at city hall via social media right now. 

Here's a recent comment from one of the Mayor's social media outlets that has resonated and inspired both support and debate . . .

"Just thought I'd drop in and say thanks. Your ridiculous policies have cost me the job I have had for 28 years and the business will most likely be done completely by December. Covid didn't kill it...you did. I am more likely to get shot and killed in KCMO than to die FROM Covid."

Accordingly . . .  

Mayor Q has pressured Prez Trump, Guv Parson and Missouri GOP Senators to work for federal stimulus in order to assist the economic hardship but, so far, there's no immediate help on the way. 

For now, check this more concise view of COVID-19 orders that will hopefully prevent the spread of the pandemic but certainly have created a great deal of economic hardship in Kansas City.

Gotta put it more simply than that T.

Quinton Lucas Killed Kansas City.

Have to admit I feel extremely guilty because I voted for the guy. At the time he seemed like a better option, now I'm not sure that's true.

I bet people would sign that recall now.

Too bad there never was one in the first place.

It was a false flag from the mayor. The social media group was quickly taken private and disbanded. A good trick. I bet people would vote for a recall now.

The mayor is doing the best he can.

He is trying to save lives. I hope the economy will come back stronger but we need to keep people safe right now.

Bandit is the real kool aid drinker, in countries like the "shit hole" ones described by the dear leader there are fewer deaths per thousand population than 'merica. Could it be they don't like freedom? Nope they are smarter than the bandit and his ilk. Another case of 'merican exceptionalism, number one in deaths, killing more 'mericans than WWI,II, Korea and Vietnam and the gulf wars combined.

Still waiting on the miracle on election day........drink that kool aid bandit and like the other deniers you will get sick and hopefully there is room to treat you.

Bandit said...

YOUR business is closed and YOUR kids can’t go to school because we need to protect elderly mask hypocrites like Dianne Feinstein from Covid-19


Wear a mask if it makes you feel good but do everyone else a favor and shut the hell up about it to others. Nobody is running around telling you to take yours off. YOU are no better than anyone else. ENOUGH with the uber-paranoid, control freak, bed wetting, bullcrap already!

P.S. Make sure that you pay your taxes by December 31 even though Q Ball is doing his best to make sure that you don't have a job. And if you don't have a job? Don't worry. Jackson County will tack on a nick delinquent penalty for you and you can pay even more later. Be a good little plebe and do your part! It's going to be FUN watching Jackson County cry about tax revenues being "substantially lower" than expected in January. 😏🍿

Q is doing the best that he can.

What is missing from this blog is any solutions or answers to how we can fix this problem and save people's lives.

The only thing I see is denial and blame.

Better to give people real answers than just useless complaining. Quinton is doing that and trying to keep people safe, can't fault him for that.

Bandit said...

Pretty simple, Q ball needs to quit meddling and let people be responsible for themselves. Through his actions he has taken responsibility for everyone and therefore is due all the blame. Doesn't affect me at all. This crap is a large part of why I left in the first place. He cannot meddle in EVERYTHING and expect good results. Doubt me? See also Venezuela or Cuba. The man is a unknowledgeable micromanager of the highest order. Good luck Kansas City! You're gonna need it! 😏🍿

Q doesn't know what he's doing. He has never owned a business or worked a REAL job and doesn't know how people make money in the real world. His decisions come from a serious lack of knowledge about the reality of running a small business.

12:29, no Bandit is correct.

There is a categorical, straight line reference from the "Lockdowns" & draconian policies of Democrat mayors and governors to the economic stress inflicted on innocent citizens who have done nothing but try to make a living and support their families. At first it was "Flattening the curve" but then, like all Democrats, this mayor decided to "Never let a crisis go to waste" and unconstitutionally handed down Papal/Mayoral Bull(shit)s that he hopes will geld the middle class and make them accountable to a central government for there WELFARE.

It is all about control and manipulation. The "curve" was flattened 9 months ago, and yet here we are, putting the most vulnerable of our fellow citizens in the service industry right back into their parents, or somebody's basement.

The death rate is zilch, the rate of infection is up, AS WE ALL FUCKIN KNOW, BECUASE OF MORE TESTING and yet once again, a do gooder, holier than thou, sanctimonious, "I know best", "it takes a village" idiot/mayor is feeding his own ego, wrecking people's lives and destroying his city's economy as fast as he can say, "Russian Collusion!!!"

Here's some breaking news Mr. Mayor, the fuckin Covid, has no idea, what time it is. That's because, you anencephalic dolt, it's a fuckin virus and a fuckin virus is gonna do one thing and one thing only, it's gonna "VIRUS".

Bend your knee!!!!!!

Obviously, you're rooting against the USA and every American. Typical anti social pretend "progressive" who simply wants destruction not cooperation.

Just as bad as MAGA in my opinion.

People have a right to disagree. The real problem is that people like Q who think they're right step all over the rights of everyone else.

This lockdown is bunk and so are most of the protesters who constantly complain but never volunteer to help.

“Their last dying words are, ‘This can’t be happening. It’s not real,’” Doering, a South Dakota nurse, said, adding that some patients prefer to believe that they have pneumonia or other diseases rather than covid-19, despite seeing their positive test results.

All because of the misinformation people like Chuck Lowe spreads.

chuck I'll never forget what you said when Trump got the virus you firmly believed was relased from a lab on purpose:

I mean Trump has the Covid, but, it he survives, he wins the whole pot.

I can just see him, shakin a bottle of Hydroxychloroquine full of pills in the microphone at the next debate and telling everyone, "I was right, they were wrong, Hydroxy works and they lied, THAT'S why so many died".

Progressives are praying to Satan in hell that Trump dies, because if he doesn't, Trump will crucify them on this shit.

Good times.

And as usual, crackpot city.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told Trump "This morning, three Brazilian people died from Covid-19.”

Trump’s face went egg-shell white with shock. The blood drained from his face and to everyone’s amazement he collapsed on the floor.

Minutes passed and, to everyone’s relief, Trump got up shakily and then sat back on his chair.

His staff was nothing less than stunned at this display of emotion from Donald Trump, nervously watching as he sat, head in hands.

Finally, Trump looked up and with a shaky quivering voice asked Dr Fauci, "How many people is a brazillion?"

12:59 I don't have the influence that our shitheel mayor does, but, I can read and your definition of "Misinformation" just means that your opinion, in your mind is like some holy, handed down from the mount/god's lips to your ears truth.

It is not. Your emotions are not facts.






Again, ANYONE with just a cursory interest in the Covid, KNOWS by now, that the elderly and folks with co-morbidity problems are at risk. The rest are a categorical anomaly.

The average age of people who die of Covid? 78

The average age of Americans when they die? 78

Spread your lies and fear somewhere else moron.

2:36 pm, you've lost your perspective. There are almost 330 million people in the US. 250k poor souls have allegedly died from COVID, but we know that number is over reported because people who die in car accidents but tested positive for COVID are listed as COVID deaths. But in any event, that is less than .01% of the US population. Easily transmitted, yes. Deadly, not so much.

5:26 Information is information.

Nurse Doering, a Marquette grad and licensed Certified Nurse Practitioner (CNP), lives in a little town called Woonsocket, in Sanborn County. Sanborn County has had just one COVID-19 death since the beginning of the pandemic, according to South Dakota’s COVID-19 statistics website, which provides data from all the different regions and counties in South Dakota, and USFacts.org. That death occurred in October.

She works at Huron Medical Regional Center part time. According to the hospital’s marketing lead, with whom RedState spoke this morning, the hospital has only seen six deaths total since the beginning of the outbreak, compared to 22 deaths total in the entire county of Beadle, where HRMC is located. At HRMC there are currently only six non-critical COVID-19 patients in the hospital, one of whom is in the ICU. There are no patients currently on ventilators, according to the State’s COVID-19 statistics page.

Of the six deaths identified, RedState was able to determine that one was the tragic case of a 21-year-old mother of three who died back in May. Without revealing the identity of the mother, RedState has determined that she likely was not a patient who denied the existence of the virus. That leaves us with five patients that died at the hospital since the beginning of the outbreak, whom we have not been able to identify. RedState was not able to determine whether or not Doering was working at the time of any of the deaths. She could have been there for all five, or there for none of them. The narrative that Doering appeared to be weaving does is not supported by the facts.

(Here, if you are NOT as stupid as 5:26 and are interested in facts, you can look at the stats posted BY THE MEDICAL CENTER IN THE ARTICLE)

Doering’s social media postings clearly show she leans hard left. Her actions leave some very difficult questions as to why Doering would have violated patient privacy laws in the case her accounts are true, and some even more difficult questions if she has made the case up. Even if she were telling the truth about one patient, the story that she’s witnessing this on a consistent and regular basis appears to be a complete fabrication. As you can see from the statistic above, Huron Regional Medical Center does not have an alarmingly high patient load, the region seems safe in their capacities, and there isn’t a single patient in the region on a ventilator.

Doering’s account on Twitter and during her CNN interview imply that these events are happening consistently, that she was encountering this problem on a regular basis. While Doering may have witnessed her described situation once or twice (or at the most five times over eight months), the way the media blew it up made it seem like she was in a full COVID-19 treatment ward that was encountering this situation multiple times a day. From stats and the data available, as well as contact with the hospital, that appears to just not be the case.
