Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

I always wonder if KC or STL could dominate state politics a bit more had the state capitals been closer to home or possibly in one of the cities.

Re: Infrastructure Stimulus

I would love to settle for a $225k house, alas, almost everything on the market is going fast, gets extreme bids out of nowhere, & almost everyone is waiving inspections & more just to be able to buy. But as you said, facts that you personally know hit harder than studies & statistics, so whatever. ...

Re: Infrastructure Stimulus

My friends, family, friends of friends, all can't afford even the simplest one bed/one bath. I wish you knew the struggle, seeing stuff like this just continues the drain on hope.

Re: Infrastructure Stimulus

I'm 31, my parents tried to save for us too, all wiped out through various recessions & stuff. 9/11 wrecked our hope, 2008 ruined our chances, COVID just dug the knife in deep. We will never get the chance to buy a home or anything at this rate, & it's no fault of our families but of banking & choic...

Re: Infrastructure Stimulus

Tax me then, I can't take money with me after death & personal wealth is pointless. Future generations deserve a great infrastructure to pop into. We keep venerating the Greatest Gen & stuff without doing all the self sacrifice of previous generations.

No one was shaming pregnant people, you brought it up. At this point, if the long term effects screw me up, whatever. If it means there is a nice good world for future generations to live in, I'm all for it. This is such selfish behavior from everyone around who isn't in a non studied personal situa...

You'd think the whole "benefits outweigh the risks" thing would help ease people over but nope. Guess they now believe that every country in the world is in on this vaccine turning you into a muskrat or something.

Cleaver was a leader in bringing back earmarks, so he would probably be the winner. If it were named after Hawley it would probably be burned down.
Blunt is here for another year and a half. Could be a good legacy project.
Probably not after 1/6. Imagine it would create a whole ton of anger.

Re: Troost Village

Calling this a recreation of the Isis is absolutely silly. Not even close. It's white, thats about it. I’ll be slightly more charitable and point out that some of the details are similar. It’s like they knocked off the top of the old building. Pretty weird http://i2.wp.com/midtownkcpost.com/wp-cont...

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

All of those tournaments will come anyways, look at MSG. I'm tired of this argument, just feels like we gave up way too easily on that.

Plus, having a team in there would help them through the pandemic & all too.

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

We stream in our place but none of those offer the channel surfing aspect that he desires. If any of them could connect via your phone to a remote so he could flip like that, my life would become easier when the inevitable switch happens.

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

I believe it's because HBO wants you to provide HBO Max now if you broadcast regular TV HBO & they're slowly closing it down. I just dread having to get my parents back to cable because my dad likes the flipping around aspect that you still can't really get with streaming.

Re: Develop the area around the TSC?

I still don't believe the city would ever allow the Chiefs to leave the city. While they probably & hopefully won't give them any more money for stadium improvements/new build, they'll find other ways to make it happen. I think the backlash on public funded stadiums has finally started to usher out ...

You can barely see PDX's glass canopy over their garage. I hate it as well but at least it's still moving along. I'll take anything at this point.
