Re: Politics

To be fair, it's pretty demotivating when it looks like the establishment is aligning against your guy again because he dares to suggest we might be able to get people healthcare and educations. What a radical!

Welp, I guess we’re getting another 4 years of trump.
That was my unfortunate instinct as well: repeat of 2016. Smells awful, and awfully familiar.

Re: OFFICIAL - City Club Apartments (former Midwest Hotel)

What's up with the sidewalk closure? I was chuffed they had left the sidewalk open surrounded by scaffolding, but last time I walked by it was just completely closed. Mildly annoying.

Re: OFFICIAL - Lightwell (formerly City Center Square)

Are you trying to argue that anti-intellectualism and lack of creativity signal the great flourishing of humanity? And using a podcast as supporting evidence? Because I think you just proved his point.

Re: Westport

It's probably a little unfair to blame only stupid people. There is also a large number of very good and very smart trolls deliberately sowing chaos, some pursuant to a political agenda or ideology but many just because they think it's funny when the media freaks out about whether the OK hand gestur...

To be completely fair, it's not older people that came online and saw the edgelord ways of 4chan and thought "oh shit, these are actual nazis and now it's OK to be a nazi!" and started going to rallies with tiki torches and stuff.

Re: Layoffs at The Star

I think the op/ed side of the Star has always skewed a bit liberal anyway, but now it seems even the most conservative commentator is in fact a closet progressive socialist liberal if they deviate one iota from accepting each of Trump's bizarre hallucinations as reality.

Re: "RideKC Next" transit system redesign

It's woefully underfunded because the only people who ride it fall in the middle of the Venn diagram of people who don't have a choice on the one side, and people who can afford the fare on the other. So all you're effectively doing by charging a fare at all is excluding those who are the most likel...

It should be one system.
Yeah, I think most everyone here would agree with that.

And perhaps also agree that a large reason it's not is because of intermetro (mostly JoCo, but Independence isn't much better) distrust of KCMO to collect taxes from non-KCMO areas to fund it.

Re: "RideKC Next" transit system redesign

I don't think mostly. Maybe halfish? Just a guess based on the anecdotal frequency I seem to see large vs small buses. Of course, where I live I mostly see and/or ride the 24/9/12/15 buses, and they are all 40' as far as I've seen.

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

The problem I have with going over to YouTubeTV or whatever is that in spite of having gigabit internet, those things stutter and experience interruptions far more regularly than plain 'ol cable. It's almost as bad as trying to watch sports over broadcast, except you aren't compelled to get up and i...
