TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! NEW KANSAS CITY LIBERTY RESTORATION PROJECT LEADER MEGAN WESTENHAVER STEPS DOWN AFTER A BRIEF TENURE!!!



Actually, this is a bit of sad local activism news to start the day.

After a brief stint as leader of Kansas City's Liberty Restoration Project, Megan Westenhaver has stepped down.

Behind the scenes there's a bit of drama but for the most part everybody seems to be TRYING to be as classy as possible amid some tense discussions.

As of this posting . . . There's no comment on the matter from Megan but we'll post anything on the record that she sends our way . . .



We had high hopes for Ms. Westenhaver and still hope that she continues her activism in the name of liberty in the Kansas City area. Remember that TKC broke news of her rise to leadership last month.



Today and in this week's Pitch there's a nice profile of Ms. Westenhaver that is STILL worth a read. It makes us feel a bit better about our journalism skills to see that The Pitch had a bit of problems with her name as well given that their listing contradicts her FB profile. STILL . . . Worth a read and a nice look into a local activist.

Nevertheless . . . Even at the grassroots level, taking on leadership in this Cowtown isn't an easy thing but it's nice to see young people like Megan make an effort to participate in our screwed up Kansas City Area Democracy.

It would appear that her "rise to leadership" was not particularly noticeable to anyone other than herself and TKC, nor was her demise.
There must be at least tens of thousands of "organizaitons" with "leaders" in KCMO and most of them spend most of their time infighting, wrestling over nickels and dimes from the city, or bad mouthing other "organizations" doing exactly the same things.
What aspect of "liberty" in particular was she fighting for?
Just some more folks who'll be hanging around the 22nd floor at 12th and Oak looking for a handout.

Wow, you really don't know shit.

LRP advocated AGAINST outrageous City Hall spending.

I guess it's too much to expect anybody on the Internet to even have a little bit of a clue before they start typing.

That includes TKC too!

The photo layout makes her look like a cocktail waitress in a small bar...hardly the right image for a morphing of a less rebellious Occupy KC. Can I have an extra olive?

Not worth the read, Tony.

You have touched a nerve in the Tin Foil Hat set Tony.

WHAT?!?!?!?! But the LRP is SUCH a squared away org with opened minded, driven, hard working individuals?!!?!

this is just one more laughable attempt at local idiots to have citizens believe we are living in a Soviet-era police state. They spout all this talk about living free, freedom of expression, freedom to have your own opinion, etc., but try telling one of them that 9/11 was NOT an inside job and you will be cast out like a lepper. So much for free-thinking and welcoming all opinions.

Time to hang it up LRP!!!!!

Tony, your blog is best when it provides the "why" behind the stories. Why did Tracy really leave? Why did Megan leave?

Irreconcilable differences? It's good enough for most bands.

I heard that Megan was not up for the Inaugural Rite of Bukkake which is insisted upon by LRP Master of Orders and Secrets Patrick Touhy.

Two of your links are broke you fucking idiot! I swear Botello your beyond hope at this point. I hope you wake the fuck up for your own sake at some point.

@ Jemme
And LRP was sure effective in its campaign against city hall spending. Just yesterday, the big annoucencment of moving forward on the new taxpayer-funded downtown hotel took place.
LRP is just yet another little band of people who get together to celebrate their own imagined importance and talk among themselves without making any real effort to actually accomplish anything.
Next will be the widely-covered ressurection of the KCMO Occupy, consisting of a copuple dozen people and a giant puppet.
KCMO can't even do protest group well.

Tony, while you are waiting for Megan's "on the record" response, how about informing your readers about Liberty Restoration Project?

How many people are actively invovled? How is it organized? How do they choose their "leaders"?

Besides standing on street corners protesting red light cameras as the greatest infringement on civil liberty since the Bolshevik Revolution, what else do they stand for? What else have they accomplished?

I'd kind of like to know if this is a true political movement worth paying attention to, or five or six people who meet in a bar every now and then to bitch about the condition of the universe.

Please DON'T show us your tits, or anything else with skin. You have far too much skin, Tubby.

Thanks, Tony, for staying current.

As usual, the comments do not disappoint. Thank you, boys and girls, for your ever insightful and always on topic editorials. I personally appreciate all your tasteful remarks and constructive criticisms. *smile*

I voluntarily resigned my position as Executive Director on Monday, September 16th, due to personal issues and conflicts, none of which I feel any need to discuss at length and particularly not in a public forum. I will continue working on issues related to the restoration of personal liberties, and hope to support the many friends I have gained over the last few months of involvement.

Keep it classy!

<3 Megan Westenhaver

Hard to lead an organization when the shitty managers of the past still pull all the strings for no apparent reason. Good for Megan for seeing what shit Tracy is & moving on. Sad to see her go though. She was changing things drastically for the better after years of Tracy ineptitude.

Megan, I can't possibly express to you how little I care of your tiny club and who leads it.

For that reason, I thank you for not airing your "personal issues and conflicts" in this or any other forum.

Thank you, for all your mean comments, mostly from white boys with little dicks. Too bad they don't hurt me, not like the nigga brothers whose BIG cock meat bruise my cervix. Fuck you mean small dick assholes!

I love people who live in edwardsville Kansas telling kcmo residents to fight red light cameras. Kind of like Virginia residents telling us how to build light rail.

At least she didn't have silicone melons that seem to be Tony's favorites.

Jennifer said...

Wow, as a classmate of Megan's, I am seriously offended by most of the comments on here! If you don't know her and how much she actually cares about the community, shut the hell up!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Seems to me that she "cares about the community" so much, she baled on her coveted "leadership" position at the first sign of "personal issues and conflicts."

A true Profile in Courage.

The "personal issues" were those of the former leaders who can't let go or let things change I'm sure. Classy of her to go about things the way she has actually. I'm impressed.

Anonymous said...

Still begs the question: The "former leaders" of what? The Gang of Little Rascals? The Mickey Mouse Club? The Three Stooges?

To her credit, Megan decided that the self-titled "Liberty Restoration Project" wasn't worth the effort.

Anonymous said...

Hey, Jennifer. Which one of her communities does she care about? Kearney or Edwardsville?

Anonymous said...

Eh, pretty sure she wasn't giving enough fuck-time to her new high-maintenance loser mess of a boyfriend. Just another woman quittin' doing something worthwhile, 'cause her mannnnzzz thinks it takes up too much of her time. (Anyone who knows that asshole knows I'm right. She referenced him constantly in the Pitch article. Ah, young love. It won't last, Mega Megs.)

I stand corrected. She turned out to be a heartless psychopathic hypocrite. She pretends to hate the state, but is using it to abuse me for going on 3 months soon.
