YOU can defeat the poor plan for KCI--with a DIY underground railroad campaign.
|Never underestimate the power of determined people |
to saved a loved one.
In this case, KCI that needs remodelling, not destruction.
Load your voting friends in your car--and VOTE NO!
Find a way! No need to advertise it. Just GitErDone.
This has been done before, when we the taxpayers defeated the bloated giveaway to multi-millionaires that would have been BiStateII. And we did it again when we the taxpayers defeated the even crazier Big Soccer giveaway to multi-millionaires.
We had no signs. In each campaign, we spent a total of $12,000 on postcards, thanks entirely to Taxpayer Crusader and movie maker Phillip Klein, and my working for free to badger the news media and respond to news outlets and demand the opposition voice be heard.
It's all about voter turnout.
One household, one neighbor at a time. Call three friends and meet with three neighbors--but make sure first of all that they are even registered to vote... Get them to promise to vote, and follow up with them. Drive them if need be. Support one another in voting NO. Make a homemade yard sign. Or not. (See below).*
Sadly, the CFRG/SaveKCI dynamic duo (are they secretly dating, and this is their cover-- or what??) of Dan Coffey and Cruella deVille--I mean Sherry deJanes--have so dropped the ball, it's no wonder that Phillip Klein refused to fund them this time.
The good news? Steve Glorioso is dead. The Yes campaign has written a big ass check to Big Ass Jeff Roe--who is doing nothing but eating Twinkies. Just like Steve Glorioso and Pat Gray, many times those so-called politicos are paid off just to keep them from working for the opposition. That appears to be the case this time.
More good news: Channel 9's Micheal Mahoney is starting to challenge the preposterousness of the YES folks' lies--that KC "needs" more flights. And so is the only decent reporter at the STAR: Steve Vockrodt. When the ballot issue would build just 35 gates, down from the 68 we own, and the 45 we currently operate.
Clearly, the Edgemoor "tossed salad/copycat plan" is a copy of the Burns & Mac Trojan Horse. Build LESS but call it more. And just keep lying through your teeth to the voters and the cowed KCMO City Council and the naive news media--and hope you can squeak through.
It's pretty obvious to a third grader that if they were so sure they're gonna win, they wouldn't need to send out postcards that lie.
So here's another secret strategy: If you get a phone call from an anonymous survey company? LIE RIGHT BACK AT THEM. TELL THEM YOU ARE VOTING YES! The voting booth is still secret--I don't think Russians have found Kansas City Missouri yet.
*Take the yard sign that the Yes committee offers you--and hide it in your garage-- till after election day. That milks them out of $3.95 hustled from the Gimme coalition. Don't trash it till AFTER the election.
We can do this. How do you think slavery got outlawed? The underground railroad. Long before the Lying Ass KCI Contraction Billed as an Expansion.
