Re: Boring Company tech to help untangle highway mess

If we're going to go as pie in the sky as envisioning burying KC's freeways, we might as well envision getting rid of them entirely, which would be preferable anyway and is only slightly less likely to actually happen.

Re: Boring Company tech to help untangle highway mess

I don't understand what problem you are trying to solve by tunneling under KC for cars. We've spent more than enough money on car infrastructure already. If the issue really is just that monstrous interchanges are unsightly and/or a waste of space, we'd be better served by just ripping them out.

Re: Politics

To DColeKC: I realize that because we are arguing, it is tempting to view each of our points as sort of a simple mirror of the other's, that if I take a dig at you for not being a lawyer, it would be similarly appropriate for you to dig at me because we're both having the same conversation. But whet...

Re: Politics

Instead of quoting bit by bit, just gonna do this with some quick bulletpoints. Unless you were on the grand jury, you don't know what information was presented to them, how it was presented, or what charges were sought. What the AG says at a press conference does not change this. Grand jury proceed...

Re: Politics

It is never the "correct call" for a grand jury to decide in secret proceedings that a court doesn't even need to look at cops killing an innocent person for no reason. Whether or not it was "murder" is a question of state law, but the determination that it was or wasn't should at least be made in ...

It seems kinda bad faith to try to equate what Native Americans might say about controlled burns with industrial logging operations.

Re: Politics

I don't think there is really anything left to say about the race thing so not gonna beat a dead horse. To conclude by tying it back to your original statement that precipitated the whole thing, yes things are bad for a lot of people, and yes they will continue to be bad and will likely get worse if...

Re: Politics

I'm just now realizing this is a message board. I was confused. Please point out where I was "bragging". I'm not disagreeing I talked about my personal time spent with members of the black community in an effort to understand, learn and be a ally. I'm pointing out it's ridiculous to call me discuss...

Listen, you all sit there and be quiet because you think you can’t have an opinion unless you are a member of what your opinion refers too. I don’t care how much time you’ve spent educating yourself or how involved in other communities you are, unless it’s an opinion about your gender, your race an...

Re: Politics

I've never acknowledged my race on here that I'm aware of and does that make a difference in you respecting my opinion or not? Would you treat me differently if you knew I were a black person who tries to remain in the middle but tends to lean to the right? Why should I be forced to reveal my race ...

Re: Politics

You "can't imagine it being all that bad for anyone," but something like 90% of black people clearly imagined that Trump was worse for them in 2016, and a similar proportion are currently polling in favor of Biden. Maybe you ought to just admit that they might know something about their own circums...

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Personally I don't think that booing sitting out the anthem is especially better than booing empty gestures toward "unity," so I'm not sure how meaningful the distinction really is anyway. What I'm confused about is why anybody would expect anything else from a crowd of NFL fans willing to attend a ...

Re: Politics

Not out of spite, but possibly in defense of some. Obviously this wouldn't be the sole reason and certainly not an uneducated vote. You literally said spite before, it was your own word that you chose. But whether your vote is to spite the meanies or show solidarity with their, uh, "victims," in an...

Took a few days to reflect on this before commenting because unlike what was mentioned, I do take politics very seriously which is why I get heated.

Re: Politics

Are you serious? Why are comparisons to a past president off limits? That's so childish. How do we know if what anyone does is good or bad if we don't look at the past? I'm not comparing them as men or even presidents, I'm comparing their schedules. It was made to sound like taking his first meetin...
