So KC city council could have saved $35 million and just relied on the future Parkville sports complex north of the river instead of building their own?
Nice heads-up work there you fucking dumb asses.

Damn! I hate Baseball, but now I have to start watching it, just because some lying has-been narcissistic Loser says we should boycott the MLB.

Guess I can turn the games on my TV and then go do something enjoyable, like drink a Coke.

Some people might consider thatthere's a difference between a then-26-year-old dating an 18-year-old and a 38-year-old using Campaign Funds to haul his 17-year-old Mistress around the country with him.

(Hint: It's called "Age Of Consent"!)

Even Jarod and Ivanka are ignoring Trump. Why should anyone listen to a failed has-been?

The MLB requires photo ID to pick up tickets but thinks it's dumb for Georgia to require photo ID for voting. Coke, Delta and the MLB can rot in hell. I hope some MLB players refuse to play in the All-Star game. Ratings will take a hit because of how stupid the "woke" Libtards are being about ensuring fair U.S. elections. They don't want fairness because it makes it harder to cheat.

Maybe someday SNL will take on Hunter Biden and all the despicable things he's done, but don't hold your breath. He's part of the protected class.

RE: Swope Health adds Easter gifts to family essentials drive-thru event

Does anyone know how many non-Black families received an Easter basket from Swope Health?

Can you say EQUITY?

Swope Health is largely supported by federal tax dollars, and federal law prohibits racial discrimination.

As of 2017, Swope Health President David Barber received compensation of approximately $342,000
Swope Health lists assets of some $54 million dollars.
Swope Health spends 1 million dollars per year on lobbying.
Swope Health had nearly $400,000 invested outside the U.S., in Central America and the Caribbean.

Besides "Swope Health Services", there is also the "Swope Health Foundation", "Swope Parkway Housing Inc.", and "Swope Community Enterprises", all affiliated entities. That's 4 separate ways to dole out federal tax dollars and contributions to those politically connected to the organization.

Please note the KC Star would NEVER do a financial investigation of Swope Health umbrella organizations.

Biden doesn't want you to get together with your family today, but of course he will.

And yet if Hunter Biden ever runs for office, I'm sure SNL will have a field day. Weird.
