Re: “KKFI 90.1 fills an hour with news from Al Jazeera

Its actually a nicely made network. Its like the Fox News of a different continent. Popular, lots of money, covering stories people want to see.

Re: “Google Fiber bails out North Kansas City's fiber-optic misfire

LinkCity never made a profit, because they have a network guy who knows next to nothing, a salesperson who knows even less, and a figurehead director who doesn't play an active role in building the business. It's stereotypical city government style waste, with overpaid employees who are underqualified for their role. Never in my life have I dealt with a group of people who were more apathetic toward profitability.

Re: “KKFI 90.1 fills an hour with news from Al Jazeera

Mouth breather here -


Do you support Al Jazeera's protection of Sunni slaughter of Shias?

Do you feel that Sunni Islam is more worth protecting than Shia or Sufi?

And how do you feel about the Muslims who claim religious justification for their bombings of churches in Nigeria?

Ooops sorry - I was breathing through my nose...

Well, we heard from five of Kansas City's idiots today. Any other uneducated mouth breathers want to chip in with their expert opinion?

Meanwhile, Kansas City North is once again the forgotten stepchild in this arrangement.

Re: “Google Fiber bails out North Kansas City's fiber-optic misfire

The residential rate for 3mb is $25 bucks a month and I would LOVE to have Google operate liNKCity and use Northtown as a testing ground. I can't wait to fire DirecTV, et al.

Sura 9:5
And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

Even better is 8:12 in which it is commanded to behead the unbelievers

I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

Inshallah may Islam make itself known to the world inshallah

Re: “Google Fiber bails out North Kansas City's fiber-optic misfire

Actually the problem was the majority of people that bought the low rate plan, NOT how much the high rate plan was, that area has a high lower income ratio to medium income ratio. I would venture to say almost 75-25. Most people would get the 1.5-3Mb plans because that worked just fine. Latency was low so Netflix ran just fine over the one tv or computer, and gaming was never an issue. Even when they ran a special for a 10Mb package nobody wanted it because what they had worked just fine.

On top of all that, an installation to a home that did not have prior service would cost roughly 800-1200 dollars for all the equipment and labor. So for a $14.95 customer the ROI on that stinks!

Heck I am hoping Google comes to my neighborhood because I want the "free" 5 Mb plan because I don't need it for anything more.

If they lead with anything other than Jodie Whatsherface for Michael Jackson, I'm all in.

Free speech works both ways.

Speaking of which, anyone know if we'll ever get "The Naked News" in Kansas City?

Re: “Google Fiber bails out North Kansas City's fiber-optic misfire

I work for Geo-Tel (http://www.geo-tel.com) and we take fiber optics data and lay it over GIS software, basically making fiber optic lines viewable in a spatial map-like environment. We help local governments, city officials, and urban planners find new ways to increase their city’s connectivity by analyzing existing fiber infrastructure. This allows them to make wiser and more fiscally sound decisions when it comes to expanding upon the telecom infrastructure.

Re: “The Wolf Creek nuclear plant might melt down - in court

"Anyone wanna run a pre-Chernobyl nuclear plant?"

C'mon. Histrionic melodrama of this caliber needs to stay in the Jr High girls bathroom where it originates. This is about a transformer that lies outside the actual chain of production for nuclear power. The same transformer could be used in a coal plant (and probably is) with the same consequences...shutdown until repair.

The only issue here is forcing the transformer supplier to reimburse us for the $17 million in lost revenue.

Re: “How TIF flushed Swope Ridge to make way for soccer

Lets see there is a large number of homeless folks living in tunnels YET the city has enough for a soccer field NO ONE NEEDS? Again the city seems to be catering to everyone BUT the poor & homeless. Yet who will these same "Liberal" DINOs ve begging come out & vote for them?? Yep the same folks they don't want to provide Sewers or homes for...
