Sinquefield Flack Admits City/County Unificaiton Plan Is About Eliminating Earnings Tax

St. Louis Business Journals noted recently that "Republican strategist" Gregg Keller tweeted that he was in favor of the City/County unification plan proposed by right-wing millionare Rex Sinquefield's group Better Together STL because it would get rid of St. Louis's earning tax: What they didn't note, however, was that Keller is a member of the board of Rex's original right-wing think tank, the Show Me Institute. So it seems like he might have a pretty good idea of what the real intentions are behind this plan. And, of course, the earnings tax has long been a white whale for Rex, since wrecking the state economy of Kansas ceased to be amusing. And for anyone wondering just how much old Rex values independent thinking in those on his payroll, keep in mind that the muesum he bankrolls recently ran an exhibit titled, literally, "The Sinquefield Effect."

Rex Sinquefield Refers To International Master in Chess as "Some Blond"

The favorite right-wing millionare of the corporate wing of the St. Louis Democrats disgraced himself even more than usual last November by referring to Anna Rudolph, an International Master of chess, as "some blond" on the Today in Chess program. As was pointed out by many chess commentators, Rex himself has not achieved IM status. It's just so strange that Rex engaged in such blatant sexism, since all of the St. Louis Rexocrats kept telling me that old man Rex is a committed libertarian who's, like, totally cool and compassionate on social issues even while he works tirelessly to defund state and city governments. It's almost as if he's just a typical old cranky conservative who figured out how that he can buy off unprincipled "Democrats" in order to get them to sell out the citizens of cities like St. Louis and Kansas City.
