Re: Crown Center: urban disaster, shining star, or in-between

I went to the top of the Westin several times just before it closed - it was a bar/lounge that featured a piano and vocalist. It was in pretty bad shape, but the views were amazing. How is it possible that the space couldn't make money (or at least be self-sustaining) solely on renting it out as we...

Re: Politics

“Owning the libs” at the polls didn’t work so it must be done here of course. It’s literally the conservative playbook now. No substance so just attack people for weird graspy grievances instead. Agreed. It’s the mantra of the right. And it never works; they always fail. But they keep trying becaus...

Re: Politics

What’s the point of intentionally misgendering someone beyond ad hominem? Omg. Really? I don’t know Link2’s gender so I didn’t want to assume and was taking a page out of your book by trying to be “inclusive”. Very typical on your end, grasping for outrage. “Owning the libs” at the polls didn’t wor...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

It seems like the Royals will be doing this without the Chiefs though. So the extended sales tax may be only for the Royals and the Chiefs are in more of a holding pattern till after the World Cup… If true, a huge mistake. As far as I know, it's still a joint effort. Royals just happen to be out fi...

I’m more hesitant to slap the white nationalist on people but doesn’t change the fact that Tucker and people like him are just mouthpieces for their preferred political party. I mean he is clearly a white nationalist. And there aren't two sides to all debates. One side takes its cues from these des...

Exciting.
2026 is the goal. As far as size/capacity, it's slated as of now to be very similar to the current K's capacity.

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

Obviously Q needs to not alienate the East Side. But are we reading too much into that comment. Yes there would obviously be concerns, but are those concerns so sensitive and immutable to make it a complete non-starter? Probably a moot debate since I do think it will be EV. But I’m not as sure as s...

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

More like 7k smaller than the smallest. I'm just saying 28k is just too small. 32k is fine. I think 34k is the most KC can possibly average anyway and that was during the back to back WS run. But building an extra small ballpark for a MLB team just seems silly. I also think the Royals would be maki...

Re: Politics

I think Trump is trash. I think he was a nationalist for sure. I don’t think he was a white nationalist but I certainly understand how many people with certain beliefs believe that. Tucker Carlson is a white nationalist. Not elected -- but one of the most influential voices on the Right. I’m more h...

I don't know of any far-right elected officials describing themselves as white nationalists or neo-nazi unlike those on the far-left who proudly claim to be Democratic Socialists. The only person in politics that comes to mind right way is Steven Miller who was an advisor to Trump. He wrote some em...

Re: Politics

I used the word socialism because there’s a large group on the far-left who want to take more from companies and individuals to put towards more social programs. There’s a line and if you go too far with taxing and social programs, negative consequences start to happen. Democratic socialist long te...
