Re: “Bonchon Chicken brings spicy Korean wings to Lee's Summit

Sounds tasty, too bad it's in Lee's Summit (worst suburb in KC metro, followed closely by Olathe and Liberty)

Re: “Grab a beer and take a tour through Kansas City-area breweries

no blind tiger in topeka? they've won a number of world gold medals and have the best maibock anywhere. tallgrass or little apple brewery in manhattan? blue skye in salina? this list seems more than a bit lazily put together...

Considering all of the **** that the city is doing, I'm surprised more people haven't cracked.

Re: “Rex Sinquefield thinks raising the minimum wage is an injustice to African-Americans on par with police shootings

Sarabethany again, what does the minimum wage have to do with being able to finish high school to get a diploma? The minimum wage was never meant to be a "living wage" but more for people entering the work force to get work experience that will help them move up the ladder. If you are 25 or 35 and still working a minimum wage job its not the system that is troubled its your work ethic. I see this every day with people I work with. There are some who will work hard and be reliable, dependable employee's. Those employee's get rewarded in a short period of time and are given additional responsibilities and titles resulting in higher pay. I have seen many employee's going from minimum wage workers to assistant and store managers in a relatively short period of time. Unfortunately the overwhelming majority of these minimum wage workers stay at a job for a few short months, some only last a few weeks where they quit or are fired because they are either lousy workers or unreliable, then they move on to another minimum wage job and stay in that same cycle. Now is that the fault of the employer or the employee? Seattle, WA was one of the first cities to incorporate the high minimum wage and studies have shown that many of these workers have asked for reduced time so as to keep themselves eligible for government benefits. Good paying jobs is much like respect, it or they are earned and not simply given. An obvious goal for any sensible minimum wage worker should be to get off minimum wage as quickly as possible. If someone is content doing minimum wage type of work into their 20's and 30's, then its not the work force that is to blame for their living conditions....it's themselves.

Re: “The Campground's Christopher Ciesiel talks crowdsourcing ahead of Saturday's pop-up fundraiser

It's not like the economy was very helpful to people trying to start businesses in the last decade, but kickstarter is just making people lazy and is the final nail in the coffin for old fashioned entrepreneurs.

Re: “Rex Sinquefield thinks raising the minimum wage is an injustice to African-Americans on par with police shootings

If an employer (be it in the fast food industry or otherwise) pays an employee a wage that is below a living wage, everyone else must pick up the burden. This leads to food stamps and other welfare assistance. Thus, the employer gets the employee(s) at a fraction of the cost but we have to subsidize his/her business. Guess Rex is OK with that type of "welfare" for the business owner.

Re: “Axiom Strategies' Jeff Roe, likely architect of negative Tom Schweich campaign ad, is senior strategist for Ted Cruz's presidential campaign

Of course he could have contributed to the situation in which this man committed suicide. He calls himself a bulldog...and now he's with another horrible candidate Cruz who will lose. The voters aren't that stupid to elect an unqualified candidate such as Cruz. In time, Roe will reap what he sows. His karma will catch up to him.

Re: “Midland announces incoming fall concerts: Godsmack, Awolnation, Diana Krall

I just saw her at Wolf Trap in Northern Virginia, July 25, 2015, and she was fabulous. Complete show, like a giant "cozy" jazz concert. The concert venue looked "sold out" to me, lawn areas packed too. A major star and talent, but also very nice, Diana's voice is as beautiful and smoky as ever, her piano playing mesmerizing, and jazz interpretation so cool. I loved it!

Re: “Rex Sinquefield thinks raising the minimum wage is an injustice to African-Americans on par with police shootings

@stayinschool your statistics are wrong. I found the Bureau of Labor Statistics report for 2014. It says that over half of minimum wage workers are over 25. How is that possible if the "overwhelming majority" as you claim are teenagers?? It doesn't say anything about breadwinners, but if you research welfare programs at least 1/3 of recipients are the so called "working poor". It says 65% work part-time, that's true, and one reason is many companies want to avoid paying benefits by having their employees work just under full-time. That's why you see single mothers working 2 or 3 crap wage jobs. As for your claim that very few people here in KC will be positively impacted by a $15 wage -- really?!? Can you just hop on a bus at 6am and talk to a few people? I have lived here all my life and I know a TON of people who make under $15 per hour. And as for encouraging people to complete their education...don't you think making a non-starvation wage would help them to do that? And KC did not even pass the $15 wage, only $13 per hour and that not until 2020. Do you seriously think making $13 per hour in this city is luxurious? You can't even rent a decent apartment for under $600 a month. After taxes are taken out, that doesn't leave you with very much!
