Re: Politics

Except when the US gives money to rebels to oppose duly elected governments, which creates a vacuum and leads to corruption and unrest. Pretending we are not part of the problem, either in the past or currently, will prevent the problem from ever being solved. Absolutely! But, say Exxon Mobil spend...

Re: Politics

All while working with the governments to assist with the problems they are having (not easy, I get it, but still something that needs to be done). Second, we need to invest in our own immigration process, we need more judges, faster processing, more immigration employees and more direct rules for ...

I'm not sure that asylum equals citizenship.

Previous "caravans" have dwindled in numbers as they go through Mexico and toward the borders. Not sure what will happen with this one since HYPE!

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Since the current model doesn't work any where else in the city, I'd be curious to hear about any funding mechanism that isn't a regional plan.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

The next best bet after umkc is a regional plan. It's not a very good bet.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Re: Politics

Also the reason HIllary lost to Trump wasn't because she was old and establishment, it was because she was Hillary Clinton. That said, I think old and establishment would be a mistake vs. Trump in 2020. You have to get some of the middle grounders excited about a new direction. Exactly if its Corey...

Re: OFFICIAL - Crossroads Hotel (2107 Central)

It is quite the beautiful hotel. Great design aspects and use of space. Service is a bit spotty, but to be expected at this stage of their roll out. Lobby/bar area is serving breakfast/lunch/dinner, not sure about the last two, but breakfast was quite good. Italian restaurant is scheduled to be open...

Re: Kansas Side Breweries

yeah that's pretty aggressive, but good to see. i can't imagine they all survive given the increasingly crowded beer market, but the more the merrier. there are several breweries on the east side of the metro now too (crane, new axiom, smoke, east 40, fringe). BKS Artisan Ales also seems to be doin...

Re: 1800 Walnut

So exciting! I was thinking about this recently and now my question has been answered. This one moved pretty quick through the process. Maybe leasing at Arterra is going fast enough that they wanted to pull it all together and build it quickly. https://i.imgur.com/BnhCwSC.jpg It will look nice once...
