Anyone but Sly but please cut the facial hair. You look like a member of Peter, Paul and Mary (guess she doesn't have a beard).

I agree with Skip: you pay poverty wages, you get (and deserve) poverty service.

Re: “Dozens arrested at Stand Up KC strike at 14th and Prospect

I might be more willing to listen to the pro minimum wage raisers side when they actually begin to address the negative long term affects of their argument. Though I agree that minimum wage should be equal to a living wage, I also believe a low wage for purely entry level work is completely acceptable. There are so many different programs, grants, and scholarships for advancing job skills and education. Establishing a better trained and higher educated work force through those programs will have a much more tangible and long term effect than the simplistic and shortsighted idea of raising the minimum wage to such a ridiculous level.

Re: “Cake (the band, guys) is at CrossroadsKC tonight

I think you posted a picture of a band called "The Sea and Cake." I'm used to John McCrea having a beard so I started googling.

Anyway, these guys are fun and hopefully the weather holds out for a nice night.

What is wrong with most of you and our society in general? Football players make millions, movie stars make billions, wall street crooks make trillions buying up American companies and sending the jobs overseas, yet you bitch about folks at the bottom of the wage scale make a $1 or two more an hour.

Re: “Dozens arrested at Stand Up KC strike at 14th and Prospect

Reality check folks. These protests are organized by the unions. It's all about organizing and getting more members. Follow the money, purely political and the workers are just pawns.
These jobs have always been filled by young people who move on to better jobs. Only a very small number of people stay in jobs like this. And they don't make minimum wage after a year or two.
Why should anybody expect to get a raise and make more money doing the same job year after year. You have to improve yourself and move up or you get left behind. That's the way it works.

Re: “The Breeders played a sold-out show to a captivated audience last night at RecordBar

Walking with a Killer was released as a solo single by Kim in 2012. It was played occasionally on last year's LSXX tour. Looking forward to recording from this tour!

Re: “Brandon Howell accused of killing Susan Choucroun, Lorene Hurst and Darrel Hurst

Do I judge a person by their appearance ? You bet.
Is that racist? No. Just smart.
Do I feel bad that young, black males that will never commit a crime get judged by their appearance? yes.
However, they have lost all credibility because SOME lack basic human behavior.
Them are the breaks. Small price to pay for my safety.

Re: “IKEA Merriam gives the media a freshman orientation class

Oh my, the haters are gonna hate. Love the review, and I love ikea. Not all honest reviews need cause controversary. Take off the rose colored glasses people. You can still love the product. IKEA isn't for everyone. They identified a gap in the marketplace and filled it. If you are in that gap, great, if you're not, so be it.

If anything Susan's murder will serve as a warning: all the liberal racial piety in the world won't keep you safe.

Re: “Dozens arrested at Stand Up KC strike at 14th and Prospect

People are getting their heads chopped off, people arewalking around killing innocent people, someone is protesting their McDonald's wages?? Fuck it, raise their wages and cut their social benefits. At that pay rate, most won't qualify for housing, state paid daycare, medicaid, etc. They will have much less disposable income. Really, if you want more money get educated or learn a trade. Leave the McDonalds jobs for the 16 yr. olds.

Re: “Boulevard's Hibiscus Gose sampling at Bridger's Bottle Shop tonight; official release Tuesday in Kansas City

I thought it was pretty tasty. The fruitiness and sour rather than bitter quality are very refreshing, and the cilantro gave it a peppery afterburn that lasted some time after polishing off the bottle. Wasn't cheap, though - eleven bucks a six at midtown Gomers. I'm glad I tried it, but I doubt I'd buy it again. Too many other good choices in that price range.

Re: “Dozens arrested at Stand Up KC strike at 14th and Prospect

Did anyone ever tell you life's not fair? If you don't like what you make find a better paying job. I'm not a rocket scientist, so I shouldn't be paid like one. Get educated, make a better wage. Oh btw-life's not fair!
