The Kansas City sheeple have spoken.
Just as our blog community predicted . . .
KANSAS CITY E-TAX PROVES VICTORIOUS ONCE AGAIN BY MORE THAN 50 POINTS!!!
Forgive the lack of surprise.
Again, we remind readers that there was no organized opposition and this ballot question designed by Missouri tax fighters has been nothing more than a tremendous waste of time and unnecessary cost.
To be fair, the E-tax is an outdated relic and representative of a bygone era wherein people actually expected trash backs and neighborhood services for their cash.
In the current post-capitalist epoch, quite a bit of KCMO taxpayer cash funds social justice, homeless housing, tourism, development speculation and continued efforts to mandate diversity and equity.
Fair warning . . .
Telecommuting and Internets tech is already quickly draining revenue from this source.
Moreover, the slap in the face to our Johnson County neighbors has always engendered hard feelings from suburban critics.
Nevertheless . . . Check the end game of low voter turnout and public support for a longstanding late capitalism gambit that hopes to maintain the status quo despite diminishing returns:
Kansas City Question 1
Yes - 29,426 - 77.3%
No - 8,658 - 22.7%
