Mayor didn't kill jobs, Covid 19 did. Not only that, but if the Mayor did nothing at all, you crackers would complain about that too.

I’ve been spending my money in independence for months now, fuck kc and their idiotic, childish and racist mayor and city clowncil.

Kc doesn’t deserve a second chance after the shit that’s happened there over the years, it just took the current shitheads running the place to finish it off for good now.

Strange how so many KC restaurants are surviving just fine and that so many new ones are opening, isn't it?

Covid 19 is a market factor that all businesses, including restaurants,must deal with.
No one should have to place their health and possible life in danger so that a private business can make money. During a public health crisis, like this, eating out, going to the movies and sporting events, etc. are not necessary and if these activities are contributing to the spread, it is the responsibility of the government to step in and control the situations. You white people are stupid if you think otherwise.

^^ You're just an idiot. Studies show most of the transmissions are starting at private parties where people are eating and drinking without masks nor social distancing and then the infected people are taking it home. Businesses that can social distance or wear masks should have never been shut down.

Idiot mayor and KCUR BOTH support closing restaurants which are responsible for less than 1% of Covin transmission. Then, the hypocritical morons both lament the unfortunate closings of restuarants.

What liars and losers.

Why is it ok to walk around Costco eating a piece of pizza, but not ok to serve people indoors at restaurants? Here's a hint: GOVERNMENT CAN DO NOTHING RIGHT.

You guys do not have any skills in controlling a pandemic. You also do not have any money in the game, you are just standing on the sidelines like everybody else. You people do not have any inherent rights to do anything other than what the authorities tell you to do. You can comment on these blogs with all the tough talk and bluster, but in the end you will do what you are told.

Mayor mcdumbo wants you to jump off of the bridge into the Missouri River! Hahahahaha!

10:38 the government never made mask wearing a law so it’s really just a recommendation, they know they’ll get their pants sued off of them in court if they did.

By the way, there never was an “emergency” in killer kc to require making it law or mandatory to wear masks. We never and still don’t meet the emergency conditions to warrant such an action.

White people have been running around here for years bragging about how smart they are, and how advanced the US is. Well the way you dummies are handling this mask thing shows that the smartness of white people is only a myth. It is no surprise that we have over 300,000 people dead. Bunch of idiots.
