TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! NEW KCI CONSTRUCTION: ALL BETS ARE OFF AMID PREZ BIDEN TRANSIT PUSH!!!

Slow progress on the new Kansas City airport continues but the shift in American political leadership now threatens plans, contracts and bidding.

To wit . . .

MORE PREZ BIDEN CASH FOR TRANSIT WITH FOCUS ON 'RACIAL EQUITY' SPARKS HOPE FOR GREATER MINORITY BIZ PARTICIPATION AT NEW KCI!!!

We won't belabor the point but let's not forget that last year an $80 MILLION contract was flipped over social justice controversy and because a council lady had the temerity to place a hand on her hip when contradicting a 3rd District rep.

Now, let's look at the documented agenda of Prez Biden to focus on "racial equity" by way of White House Policy . . .

Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government

Translation . . . 

LONGSTANDING COMPLAINTS FROM KANSAS CITY MINORITY CONTRACTORS OVER LIMITED NEW KCI PARTICIPATION NOW HAVE SUPPORT FROM THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WHITE HOUSE, SENATE AND CONGRESS!!!

Here's the word and a preview of upcoming drama . . .

"It's a new world. Every contract could be subject to review and rebid and there's still a lot of work to be done. For a lot of companies, this will be a windfall just as the new airport reaches completion. Vending and some interior projects are still up for completely grabs . . . You're going to see the demand for "equity" become a rallying cry and that means pushing beyond 20 or 30% MBE/WBE goals in order to make up for "systemic racism" we're talking about a goal of 50% participation or more and that will mean some very painful rebids."

Again, this social justice overturn of airport contracts ALREADY HAPPENED LAST YEAR and now we'll see the process repeat itself thanks to political upheaval and because elections have consequences.

It's a shame that they can't just find the best people to do the work cost effectively.

You just arrive in KC?

It's worse than the lowest bidder. The company with the best political connections always wins.

The company with the best political connections always.... and doesn’t have to do any of the work. It’s all subbed out to real contractors who do the work. All for the cost of twice the price!

The blacks get paid for doing nothing so they will shut up and go away, until the next big “giveaway scam” comes around.

There isn’t a black contractor big enough to do anything other than small sidewalk jobs for a thousand miles.

Joe Biden the pseudo president has axed thousands of jobs in the first three days he has been in our white house. Next domino effect of the jobs he just killed with the massive lay offs of the pipeline is gas and oil will go through the roof with the dependence will have on Saudi Arabia. So much for being American and depending on our own resources.

Just what you racist white folks hate to hear, that black people might be able to get a fair chance at making money. You really hate for blacks to benefit at all. Devils.

It will now cost twice as much as the predicted overrun and will be shoddy construction. Yay!

I really love my new president, Joseph Biden. He's sharp as a tack, and won't take crap from any country that challenges Amerika. I also love the real president cameltoe tuna Harris.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Breaking News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Saudi Arabia has made Biden "Camel Jockey of The Year" !!

Overnight converting America from energy independence and exporter, to dependent importer, killing the pipeline and the American oil industry and alienating our largest trading partner, Canada.

$5.00 gas on the way for those folks who drive to work, and stimulus bucks from taxpayers for many who sit on their ass and say "gibmee mor". Thanks low IQ voters!

Fuck China/Saudi Joe and the hoe.

It was necessary to create a new Google Account because Republicans are assholes.

One troll kept posting his comments using my name.

In the future, I will only be using my Google Account.

I will add a meaningful avatar, soon.

Byron, you don't even live here. Won't anyone else in the country listen to your pussy crap? Nobody in Kansas Shitty gives a shit what you have to say.

Meaningful avatar..........what a fucking joke. You getting hit by a train?

Now THAT would be "meaningful".

Republicans have been trying to deny my First Amendment rights for eleven years, now.

I don't need anyone's permission to comment here, except Tony.

4:46 is probably lying, though it doesn't matter to me how many mice you have in your pocket.

Nobody has been trying to deny you anything Byron. The more you talk the dumber you prove yourself to be. Nice pic. Did you just shit your pants before that was taken?
Byron Funkhouser said…
Byron, did Tony finally tell you to quit your whining and get a Blogger account? I just can't believe how long it took you. You are so incredibly stupid, which is why everyone makes fun of you. Isn't obvious? Deny your First Amendment rights? Au contraire! We encourage you to keep exercising your rights, because it is fuel for the forum fire. It was always obvious who the real Byron Funkhouser was because in every post you manage to sound like a Karen. Is this forum all you have? Tired of chasing your one-testicled sister?

Why are we building a new airport when they are going to ban oil use in less than ten years?

Sleepy creepy joe isn’t going to fund an airport for gas guzzling, oil burning, pollution causing anything because of his new green deal amirite!
Swalwell China spy said…
Byron, you are a lot more fun to ridicule than ^^ chimpy gay basement boi.

Like you, he was going to post an avatar, but the zoo would not allow photos.
His momma and sistas kept jumping up and down on their limb screeching. It sounded like "gommeemorfreestuff" but a little hard to understand from a distance, cause they always throw poo.

it seems like half of the comment from this blog are byron or the pseudo byron or whatever.

anyway, i was going to say, these kinds of minority preferences in construction already existed but do they really make a difference? rather than ownership of the firm, to me, what would help out regular guy more, is in the job totals at the actual job site. not that it matters, but there aren't ever black construction workers at the JE dunn sites all over town, i just have never seen one, or if I've seen one, it's pretty rare. so, call me a cynic, but I think likely these willl benefit already-doing-okay folks who happen to own businesses, and not so much for the down and out who need a hand.
