Re: “When Kansas City coughed up $24 million for improvements, one neighborhood's leaders put politics over people

Like your water problem Mr. Jenkins, some friends and family of mine live near 340 Elmwood, where at the end of the drivway, belonging to the City, there has been a broken water pipe, which broke through the concrete. The City workers came out and marked the break and stuffed rags down into the hole(like that was going to stop the water from running. The KCMO water department has been called at least four times now, and it's been running down hill for weeks now. We were told not to worry, they would get someone right over but that it wasn't being added to the people at 340 Elmwood's bill. When it comes down to it, it's costing all of us for them to just ignore the problem and let the water continue to run. Oh well, what the hell can we do it they just keep ignoring it. Your guess is as good as mine.

Re: “Sugar Creek turned residents into exiles in order to build a development that hasn’t happened

If you read the back story, they were threatened with eminent domain. Using a conservative supreme court decision, they were forced out. Do you know what abuse of power is?

Re: “Kevin Yoder reeks of insincerity, even by politicians' standards

Kiddies showing their age here.

Most of you little dropout, dope smoking libtards, wouldn't have a damn clue about earning a living or succeeding at anything other than ranting on about some moronic three-word campaign slogan like "Yes We Can" or wait for it, Five whole words in a sentence "Change, we can believe in".

Before you start piping in about how soooooooo smart and articulate you are, send back the welfare check and turn in your food stamps, let your balls drop, and my god, SPEAK in a barritone voice, before you you pipe in on matters that should be left to grown-ups.

Once reality hits you upside your loser head, realize that "The Pitch" formerly know to those of us who actually still have brain cells called the "Bitch", is all about riling your sorry asses up to peddle worthless adverts for like minded BUSINESS OWNERS. Get a FKNG clue, a FKNG life, and move on.org A.s.s.h.o.l.e.

Re: “Kevin Yoder reeks of insincerity, even by politicians' standards

i love the way these posters forget where the stimulus' started.
during the bush administration. how convenient for you to forget.
the republican party has always been on the side of the corporate giants including when they ship the jobs over seas. i work at a large corporation here in town and although homegrown? all the product is built overseas and it is a republican corporation as well...they never hide their political influence either. so for those who support the gop...good for you. i personally choose to be inclusive and not exclusive which, thank goodness, can't be controlled by a bunch of males who have no control over their own lives..

Re: “Kevin Yoder reeks of insincerity, even by politicians' standards

Sounds like I hear crying from a baby. Oh, it a story of a typical politican. One could any politican name on this story. My gosh, investigate some real corruption.

Re: “Kevin Yoder reeks of insincerity, even by politicians' standards

This seems like a story about nothing. He did some grunt work for Democrats while in college but effectively emerged as a Republican? This is insincerity? Seems fairly common and realistic that someone who gets out into the real world might adapt their view of things. I am far less liberal today than when I was 21 or 22 and didn't know much about real life. The rest of the article is much a do about nothing. Sounds more like David has an axe to grind for not getting his interview.

Re: “Kevin Yoder reeks of insincerity, even by politicians' standards

Yoder. Schmoder. Patricia Lightner would have been a better choice. IMHO.

But the headline is laughable: "Reeks of insincerity?"

Here's a quarter, David Martin.

Buy. A. Clue.

Yoder's a politician!

Equally laughable is your easy dismissal of what's obvious to even a middle schooler working for allowance: no one can spend more than they earn and long sustain it.

Then the typical reductio ad absurdum so often engaged by liberals: "we can't reduce social security, medicaid or the military!!

As if social security, medicaid or the military could be the ONLY choice in reducing the size of our gargantuan, nanny state, 'don't use incandescent light bulbs' federal gub'mint.

Buy. A. Clue, liberals. Red is the new black.

PS: for those of you who slept in gub'mint schools, that's an accounting reference, not a racial reference.

Mr. Martin: "Kevin Yoder reeks of insincerity, even by politicians' standards" and Stephene does not, please? Some day you too may grow up enough and gather the experience needed to make sense of this world and if not Cuba offers all you require.

Re: “Kevin Yoder reeks of insincerity, even by politicians' standards

The plan is to take less of each individual's money, to lower the corp. tax rate, to not saddle the kiddos w/ debt they can't afford in the name of BS the Government should not be doing, and the unleash the power of people who will bust their arses to get valuable education and make business work. It would also be nice to get the D's out of office who think big government is the answer (what a joke), clearing the path for that to happen. That's the plan folks. Leave it to the Pitch to type up a screed it hopes will help Moore. Good luck with that.

Re: “Kevin Yoder reeks of insincerity, even by politicians' standards

I'd love to banter with the left wing socialist morons who inhabit this site but I don't have time. I have to go finish my Stephanie Moore halloween mask - now that is one scary bitch - both faces. Looks freakishly similar to our Missouri monster, Robin Carnahan. Absolutely terrifying. Anyone know where I can rent an ass? I want to be sure I look like an authentic democrat.

Re: “Kevin Yoder reeks of insincerity, even by politicians' standards

It's odd to me that this beacon of journalistic purity would do a hit piece on Yoder days before an election. Will Stephie Moore get the same treatment? I doubt it.

Moore has no paper trail to investigate, no experience in politics and no resume to speak of...other than being the wife of Dennis the Menece, the alleged "Blue Dog Dem" who spent money like a drunken sailor. Wasn't he retiring to "spend time with family"? I guess Stephie has trouble keeping her man at home...
