Branson Mayor's Fiscal Idiocy - No Money - No Honor in the House of Presley

An estimated $100 million dollar expense dubbed, "The Road to the Presley Theater" is in the works following a long trend of fiscal irresponsibility and massive down-tick in Branson's allure. The $13 million dollar surplus Presley was given when taking the helm is now spent.


Several raises in utility rates and regulatory hoops have proved crushing to the Branson economy. The only beneficiary seems to be the mayor's private business as her arch enemy Andy Williams has now passed and 
top competitor and nearly identical show , (Branson's first show), the Baldknobber, reports to be shutting down.

 Higher taxes, crushing regulations, multi-million dollar litigation and deficit spending is the mark of an administration where integrity is lost. Branson's Mayor seems to have a strategy in mind - if she can drive the city bankrupt - she won't have to pay the bills - well, the road to her theater is secretly being paid and paved with buyouts that haven't yet been reported by the press - some of which she's business partners with. This is the strategy Presley is using with the airport -"we don't have the money."It's the friend who doesn't pay back  money owed and decides to buy a new car. It's the character of an individual with no character - it's the new Branson - an integrity free zone. 

While Good for the Mayor's pocket book funding the highly subsidized Presley theater seems to have one hope for the community at large - the hope is that we can resurrect the dead and pack them on busses - blue hair and all. 

The Branson Convention Center, the $100,000,000 annual revenue generating Branson Landing and the TIF funded Branson HIlls are performing radically well but the fruits of these affluent travelers higher spending totas aren't important since they're  less likely to attend a theater where Branson's poorest citizens are mocked and the praises to Jesus can be heard for 50 bucks a pop (Free with a Timeshare Tour). 

Presley's reign is marked with declension from Branson's past in such a significant way tonight she's proposing to change a law protecting the fiscal solvency of the city. The amount of money being held in the reserves will be reduced to pave the path to the Presley theater ironically named the "Spirit 76".The true spirit of 76 - 1776 is the citizens fighting against taxation - a far cry from the Presley sales job which creates new tax burden.'s sley's spirit of 76 is a strange tea party where the press supports the monarchy and the citizens pay double taxation in celebration of the royal oppression. 

 Multi-million dollar lawsuits and misreporting facts to the public are counterbalanced by business relationships with media outlets hellbent on sending rainbows and sunshine riding on unicorns to sell a fiscal plan which would make even the most shady  time-share sales practitioners blush. 

Meet Branson Mayor Raeanne Presley, perhaps, Branson's only business benefiting from a trend of fiscal debauchery leaning far left of Branson's traditional path,While the non-stop spending spree, millions in unnecessary litigation (the highest the city of Branson has ever incurred) , payouts to our mayors friends and business trips that line corrupt politicians pockets are matched by an an extreme lack of honor.

 A deal is a deal and in these parts of the country a handshake is supposed to mean something - a written contract should mean more. 

 a Presley's contracts create debt for generations,but the spending remains unquestioned. 

 Perhaps we should pay those who we promised, revenue generating,and unlike Presley's spending marked
with fiscal accountability and pay per performance metrics

Like the Mayor's other business ventures, she was on a competing airport board notorious for claiming Branson could never succeed in bringing Southwest Airlines. 

I like to end my editorials with something nice to say as all humans created by the almighty have some virtue . For Presley, I can say she's the best mayor Springfield ever had.

Private airport is the runway to Branson’s future - By DONALD BRADLEY Courtesy : Kansas City Star

— High from a jet on approach, this airport looks like something built in a jungle by Navy Seabees.

The 7,200-foot runway lies flat across the tops of seven beheaded mountains, accessed by a narrow road that winds through the dense trees. Easy to imagine a jeep racing out to the flight line.
But, really, 10 miles away, Yakov Smirnoff is telling jokes. Banjos fill the air, splashes fill swimming pools and the Oak Ridge Boys are singing about Elvira. People eat all they can eat — and then eat some more.
About 8 million people come each year to the famous Branson strip and the town’s 18,000 hotel rooms. Most drive. A lot come on charter buses. Because going back to 1959 when the Baldknobbers opened the first live music show, Branson went 50 years without a commercial airport.
Then about six years ago, huge earth-moving equipment busted through 422 acres of Ozark wild south of town and pushed the tops off those seven mountains. They moved more than 11 million cubic yards of dirt to build that plateau, at the time one of the biggest such projects in the country. The first plane landed at the new Branson Airport in 2009.
Now with the first privately developed, privately operated commercial airport in the country and a new convention center, this town that had a boom for the ages in the 1980s could be primed for another.
The airport made it easier to get there. In March, it got even easier when Southwest Airlines began direct fights from Dallas, Houston and Chicago. One connection opens Branson to the coasts.
“Southwest was a huge win,” said Lee McPheters, an economics professor at Arizona State University who did a study on how an airport would affect Branson tourism.
One thing airport studies invariably show, McPheters said: People spend more when they fly in to a place.
Frontier Airlines had already begun nonstop flights from Denver.
Officials expect Branson to remain a “rubber tire” destination, but acknowledge, too, that the airport could over time shake up Branson demographics, which tend to lean Midwestern and senior.
“My grandmother would love to get on a bus with a bunch of her friends for a 10-hour ride to Branson,” said Jeff Bourk, the airport’s executive director. “My mother would not want to do that and I wouldn’t consider it.”
Unlike other commercial airports in the country, Branson gets no federal grant dollars and, accordingly, less government red tape. That doesn’t mean TSA is not on-site; it is.
Bourk works for a corporation, not a city, county or port authority. After construction, Branson Airport LLC gave the facility to Taney County, but operates it under a 45-year lease.
“There’s no other airport like it,” said Bourk, who last year was named the industry’s Best and Brightest Under Forty by Airport Business Magazine.
“Whatever mistakes we make are ours,” he said.
The unusual setup probably goes unknown by passengers.
They might notice some things, though, that make this airport different. Beyond the hog tracks in the terminal floor.
The maintenance guy painting lines on the runway? He might be armed because his main job is police officer. The landing crew on the tarmac could be firefighters.
Because of limited flights, now about a dozen a day, employees are hired for certain jobs but expected to perform other duties on downtime. One day last week, firefighter Katie White worked police duty.
“Last winter I hung Sheetrock,” she said while watching security monitors.
“She also built our picnic tables,” Bourk said.
The airport has also turned into an Ozarks version of Rodéo Drive. You might see Roy Rogers Jr. walking through the terminal. Or Pam Tillis or Shoji Tabuchi. Mickey Gilley passes through often.
When the airport first opened, Andy Williams asked for a tour. Lee Greenwood once entertained the holding area with an a capella version of “God Bless the USA.”
Charlie Camirand, the airport parking manager — who also works in the gift shop and as a ticket agent and a firefighter and who does snow removal in winter — has a favorite.
“I love Tony Orlando,” he said. “He always says ‘hi’ to me. I take care of Tony.”

In 1882, Reuben Branson opened a general store and post office in the hills south of Springfield just short of the Arkansas line.
If he could see 76 Country Boulevard today, he would probably think that he’d be making a killing at that old store.
It all started with the Baldknobbers. Shepherd of the Hills and Silver Dollar City came soon after. The 1980s brought the boom times that would lead to more than 50 theaters.
Most recently, Branson Landing opened in 2006 on the downtown waterfront. The Branson Convention Center, anchored by the 290-room Hilton Branson Hotel, came a year after that.
But the airport didn’t have an easy start.
“We opened in the worst economy since the Great Depression,” Bourk said.
Then in 2011 part of the runway collapsed. In August, Branson Airport LLC sued the Kansas City engineering firm Burns & McDonnell and three other firms for negligence.
In a statement, Burns & McDonnell denied the allegations, saying that it remained proud of the work it did and that it was not hired for runway soil testing.
Repairs were made. The attorney for the airport has emphasized the airport continues to operate safely and is expected to serve 140,000 passengers this year.
According to Bourk, an economic impact study to be released by the state of Missouri will say the airport has generated $90 million in new revenue for the area and created 1,500 jobs.
Ross Summers, president of the Branson Chamber of Commerce & Convention and Visitors Bureau, said the airport will be a key component in taking Branson from strictly an entertainment venue to a convention city.
“It really opens us up to corporate travel and conventions,” Summers said.
Before, travelers had to fly into Springfield and then arrange ground transportation for the hour drive south.
Currently, only about 4 percent of Branson travelers arrive by air. That is expected to change.
“Southwest (Airlines) doesn’t come into a market on a whim,” Summers said. “They have vetted this town. They know we have what they’re looking for.”

Deer heads on the terminal wall and hog tracks in the concrete floor pretty much say Branson.
Look up. Those wood beams are from a buggy factory. Decorative awnings — corrugated tin from Missouri barns.
Rocking chairs. Country music on the loudspeaker.
Mary Jane Elbert and her husband sat in the holding area last week waiting for a flight to Denver.
They could have flown out from Springfield, where they live.
“But I love the way this airport feels,” she said.
Barry and Flora Bush flew in from Ogunquit, Maine, for a reunion of Barry’s classmates from Oklahoma State University.
“We wouldn’t have made it without the airport here,” he said. “This made it easy.”
Plus, it was their first trip to Branson. They stayed on the strip at the Hotel Grand Victorian.
“Right across from the Ducks,” Barry said, referring to the Ride the Ducks amphibious tour vehicles.
Then he smiled: “First thing we did.”
Bourk, 41, a New Englander, sees every landing and takeoff from his office window. He soloed at 16, got his pilot’s license at 17. He was managing an airport in Maine when he got involved with Branson.
“It was terribly exciting — we were going to build an airport from the ground up,” he said in his office. “I wanted to be part of that.”
So he loaded up the family and moved to a place he’d barely heard of. His daughter, 8, and son, 4, love it there, he said.
And the wife? Loves it too, Bourk said.
“She’s getting pretty good at go-carts.”

GRO Presses Senator Blunt to Act By March 1st to Avert Massive Service Cuts

GRO - Grass Roots Organizing, state partner of Americans for Tax Fairness, caught up with Senator Roy Blunt late yesterday afternoon on his way to speak about the potential impact of sequestration at the International Institute of Nano and Molecular Medicine.  GRO urged the Senator to protect Head Start pre-school, public safety, mental health services and job training by closing corporate tax loopholes and limiting tax breaks for the rich.

The group’s impromptu greeting for the Senator is linked to the Feb 20th national day of action in 18 states urging Congress to avert $85 billion in arbitrary, across-the-board cuts in everything from mental health services to public safety scheduled to take effect March 1st.  GRO called on Senator Blunt to eliminate tax loopholes for the richest 2 percent and make big corporations pay in order to stop the cuts.

“It’s crazy for Congress to let big corporations use huge tax loopholes to avoid paying their fair share of taxes, while middle-class and vulnerable Americans pay the price. The cuts will be devastating, from thousands of teachers being laid off to delayed Social Security checks and hits to mental health and job training programs for our troops coming home from war. Instead of more cuts that hurt average Missourians and create greater burdens for our state, Congress should close tax loopholes for the rich and corporations, so we can protect these critical investments and services for working families,” said Robin Acree, Executive Director of GRO - Grass Roots Organizing.

BACKGROUND:

  • Unless Congress acts to avert it by March 1st, $85 billion in arbitrary, automatic federal cuts—called a sequester—will result in the loss of 750,000 jobs nationwide, according to the Congressional Budget Office, and threaten the economic security of many middle class and vulnerable Americans.   Meanwhile, the CBO projects sequestration would cut economic growth in 2013 by half.  For a complete list of immediate cuts visit: http://1.usa.gov/14YOFmd.
        
  • Arbitrary cuts can easily be averted if the super wealthy and big corporations are asked to pay their fair share. About half the cuts alone can be prevented if Congress were to enact the “Buffett Rule,” which would require that people who make at least $2 million a year pay a 30% minimum tax – just slightly above the tax bracket of millions of middle-class Americans. This would raise $54 billion or nearly two-thirds of the scheduled across-the-board cuts on March 1.

House Republicans Schedule Voter ID Hearing for 6:45AM -- UPDATED

UPDATE: Committee Chair Sue Entlicher has moved the hearing on the voter suppression bills from 6:45AM to 8AM. While they are still terrible bills which should never be passed in to law, it is good that they will be heard at a time when the public has the opportunity to attend.

Also, check out Secretary of State Jason Kander's statement:

“There is no reason that a public hearing of the Missouri House of Representatives should be held at 6:45 a.m. It is not open and honest government, and it creates an unnecessary hardship for Missourians interested in testifying on the legislation or just listening to the hearing,” Kander said. “Hearings should always be held at easily accessible times for Missourians, especially when dealing with legislation as controversial and complicated as these proposals. The committee should change the timing of this hearing to allow Missourians to more easily be a part of the legislative process.”

-------------------------------------------------------

Missouri House republicans are terrified that someone might actually want to attend a hearing on disenfranchising tens of thousands of Missouri voters by requiring restrictive voter ID laws, so they've scheduled the committee hearings of those bills for 6:45AM in an effort to keep voting rights advocates from attending.

Pretty audacious if you ask me. Then again, who wouldn't want to do their dirtiest deeds under the cover of darkness?

Today in Brian Nieves: Preparing for Invading Armies

From Brian Nieves' totally real column to Senate District 26 constiuents, distributed earlier today: 

As it stands right now, countries have to buy and sell on the international market using U.S. dollars — this means when countries buy oil from OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries), they use U.S. currency. I could go into lengthy detail to explain all the aspects of how America, as we know it, could literally cease to exist if we lose the coveted position the U.S. dollar currently holds as the international medium of exchange. However, I will say this: the America you are accustomed to would no longer exist, and it is possible (even likely) that we could become weakened to the point of inviting an invading army. If that were to ever occur, and I pray it doesn't, I want an AR-15 in every closet of every house in America. Some Missourians do not believe this situation would happen, and I fervently pray they are correct. I fail to receive comfort in believing that the weakening of our nation could never happen, and I would feel much better if American citizens were armed.

Emphasis added. 

Here's the full column: 

Protecting Our Second Amendment Rights for a Safer Missouri

As many are aware, I have no hesitation when it comes to standing up and defending our rights as outlined by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Not everyone agrees with my stance on firearms in our country, but I strongly feel that word needs to be spread regarding the importance of this American freedom. I have serious concerns regarding the preservation of our free country — we must ensure our constitutional rights are passed on to our children and grandchildren.

Since the tragic school shooting in Connecticut, many individuals have expressed to me that there should be further restrictions on weapons that are specifically designed to hold several rounds of ammunition or have a military-like appearance. I’ve also heard from individuals all across the board who say we should “give in,” or compromise regarding gun control. Though I respect the opinions of my fellow Missourians, I firmly believe we have a solid right to own firearms, and it should be Missourians’ preference as to how many firearms they own.

Allow me to explain. Our Founding Fathers were very clear as to why they thought Americans should own weapons. If individuals would collectively take a short amount of time to actually research what our Founding Fathers stated about gun ownership and control, they would see that what many arbitrarily refer to as “assault rifles” would fit squarely with what our Founding Fathers wanted us to possess. Keep in mind, our country’s first leaders had just escaped tyranny and experienced firsthand the consequences of a power-hungry government. Our Founding Fathers knew that unarmed people become “subjects,” while people who are free to protect themselves are “citizens.” They knew that government, by its very nature, would continually seek more power and that it had an insatiable hunger for more of our money and our liberty. Our great leaders wanted American citizens to be free to protect themselves from, God forbid, a tyrannical government.

Now, am I afraid our government will become an absolute dictatorship in my lifetime? No; however, I do understand the very nature of government, and a tyrannical government could someday be possible. As American citizens, we must guard today what we want tomorrow, and therefore, we can never allow government to take even one small step further in the direction of restricting citizens’ right to own firearms.

Individuals may argue that my position is old-fashioned and doesn’t apply to modern times, and although I disagree, here is a more “modern” reason why our Second Amendment Rights are vital to us now. You may or may not be familiar with the absolute financial crisis — no, emergency — our country is in, but I'm acutely aware. We are living in a time when it is possible for the American dollar to lose its standing as the international medium of exchange.

As it stands right now, countries have to buy and sell on the international market using U.S. dollars — this means when countries buy oil from OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries), they use U.S. currency. I could go into lengthy detail to explain all the aspects of how America, as we know it, could literally cease to exist if we lose the coveted position the U.S. dollar currently holds as the international medium of exchange. However, I will say this: the America you are accustomed to would no longer exist, and it is possible (even likely) that we could become weakened to the point of inviting an invading army. If that were to ever occur, and I pray it doesn't, I want an AR-15 in every closet of every house in America. Some Missourians do not believe this situation would happen, and I fervently pray they are correct. I fail to receive comfort in believing that the weakening of our nation could never happen, and I would feel much better if American citizens were armed.

Gun control laws empower the government by making the people weak and encourage criminals because they have no regard for what the law states. Increased gun control would disarm the innocent and weaken those who follow the law. I want all my constituents and loved ones to know that I will never back down, not even one inch, on the subject of gun control, and I will fight any measure in the Legislature that further restricts our God-given right to defend ourselves. Gun control is not about guns — it’s about control.

I appreciate you reading this important Capitol Report, and please stay tuned to the imperative discussions we will have in the upper chamber throughout the 2013 legislative session. Thank you and God bless.
