TKC: THANKS KANSAS CITY FOR 2013!!!



At the end of this year, more people are reading and participating in this Tony's Kansas City blog now than ever before . . .

Thank You.



THIS WAS ANOTHER GREAT YEAR FOR THE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY AND, AS ALWAYS, THANK YOU FOR READING!!!

During this revolution around the Sun, the stories we helped to tell were more amazing than ever . . .

A few highlights . . .

I found myself having just a bit too much fun yelling at Kansas City Nazis this year along with a rambunctious crowd that included some of the most strident opponents to local hate.



Before any other media outlet . . . The TKC Blog Community stood against Nazis in Kansas City.

But some of it was bitter sweet . . .



Former Mayor Wheeler's estate sale and bankruptcy was kind of a bummer and reminded us that even the most brilliant and accomplished Kansas City denizens can be left without much at the end of their careers.

Mixed review . . .



Credit to real newsies of course . . . But we blogged the Kansas City Councilman Manchicken drama before anybody else and we had lots of fun pushing this story throughout the year.

But it wasn't all bad news . . .



Very often politicos in Kansas City do the right thing. This year Missouri State Reps from Kansas City Brandon Ellington and John Rizzo helped to raise money and awareness to feed the homeless. Rep. Rizzo in terms of public safety and Rep. Ellington in terms of community building offer the brightest hope for Kansas City's urban core from a new crop of elected officials.

Finally . . .



We are SO GRATEFUL to our strongest blog supporters . . . 

LB, SKM, SR, Drew, Bri, M, xalti, Greedo, Miss Sweetie Pie, Brutus, Cassius, A Special Shout Out To Puck and so many more, even our mutual friend Byron and our pal Craig Glazer . . . 

Moreover . . .

THANK YOU TO ALL THE KICK-ASS, AWESOME AND BRILLIANT TKC TIPSTERS!!! YOUR EFFORTS TO STRENGTHEN THE DISCOURSE IN KANSAS CITY HAVE INSPIRED US TO KEEP MOVING FORWARD!!!



Just like anybody else, we don't know what the road ahead is going to hold for TKC but we're thankful and very GRATEFUL for the 1ST AMENDMENT FREE SPEECH journey so far.

Thank you loyal TKC readers for 2013. God Bless.

Mr. Tony,
Have a wonderful year.

Thanks for your singular hard work and dedication to a better KC. You are doing the work once entrusted to the KC Star and are somehow doing more by yourself than their staff of hundreds of leftovers.

Happy New Year and Via Con Dios.

Thanks for keeping the blog the way it is, and for sharing what you find out. Some days are rather shitty, because nothing is going on. Yet, sometimes it gets really, really juicy around here.


There is a whole other Kansas City going on that you wont see on the local news stations.

Wow... So New Years Eve all of Tony's readers become sweet, docile and a bit maudlin? Oh wait... the people who are on TKC right now are probably quiet sober sorts of people. The majority of the readers are out getting ready to go drunk driving.

Happy New Year!

Ms. 11:26

So, you don't live in Kansas City, either?

You're a pussy, because you know very well that if you called me a thief to my face I would hit you.

Fuck West Virginia said...

I'd love to call you a thief to your face, in fact I'd like to see The Cum Guy cum on your face ! You're such a dickhead Byron.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Ms. 8:27

You're such a dickhead. You're an anonymous pussy, you won't say anything to anybody's face because you're a coward.

Any West Virginia woman could kick your ass.

Anonymous said...

Even a cursory look at this blog, and all you see are pictures of niggers, mud sharks and queers. Such a motley crew to begin the new year.....

F. W.V. said...

I read your profile. Bet your wife is one of those reformed prostitutes. You dickhead pigfuckers.

but, you lie so much.

Slanderella 2014: There is always more and it is always worse.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Asshole @ 9:09

My wife was a piano composer until arthritis mangled her fingers. You & are your wife are "dickhead pigfuckers", too.

You do have a wife, right?

Of course, I can't read your profile because your an anonymous pussy.

Anonymous said...

Your wife like you isn't s fucking thing other than a huge loser. Composer my ass, that's why we have all heard so much about her. Tens of millions of people ply the piano but that don't make them a composer. You fucking lie worse than Glazer does and act just like he does. Probably can't play anymore due to hands being burnt from sucking on a crack pipe.

Anonymous said...

Oh Byron, 11:26 might be on vacation you moron. Not that someone who is suppose to be so smart would ever figure that out.

mixed reviews now aey..... said...

They jeff with you then they through with you after they get the private news from you.5months later they suddenly jeffing with the son of the mayor. This shit is a joke someone did warn her after they use her for blog ratings they will put your black ass back on the boat. Next time she should keep it to herself and let the taxpayers get their own damn help.

Well Tony you just keep sliding a little more into the toilet every year. Before to long only things reading this site will be losers like your W VA friend and Glazer coming to see if anyone made a comment. Glazer made it clear what he thinks of KC over at KCC and lost even more of a fan base he can ill afford to have happen. chuck seldom comments anymore hyper,SKCO and superdave are the same as MIA and yet you just sit here acting clueless to what's happening. The funny and witty comments are even drying up. Instead of being a thorn in the right peoples asses here in KC like you use to be you're becoming just like a pimple on an ass that just gets popped and done away with. Yes I predict TKC by end of 2014 will either dry up from lack of readership or be shut down by a court order. The strange part is the court order isn't going to be about what most might think it will be.

Oooooh! I'll bet you're making Tony real nervous.
Oooooh,ominous comment guy is scary.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Ladies, I concede that you believe you are smarter, & infinitely more wonderful, than I, in ever way imaginable. Its a compensating mechanism. This is a free speech zone, so your safe here.

I suggest that you spend your time not thinking about me.

Byron YOU wouldn't hit anything but air. You're blind remember?

Byron Funkhouser said...

I've never lost a fight ...

Anonymous said...

Why does Byron think it's always chicks writing comments about him? Is he having some type of weird hillbilly fantasy people sucking on government teats have?

Save yourself a fantasy Byron. I'm a guy. Now start ranting about what an anonymous pussy I am, you money-sucking, welfare-stealing leech.

Anonymous said...

So Tony says Byron is his friend. I ask my fellow residents of the Kansas City area just how many of you like this phony welfare fraud.

It appears to me Tony needs a better class of friends.

Anonymous said...

3:30, here here! Byron bitches about the anonymous commenters but he hides behind the fake persona of being a brother of Mark Funkhouser. The Funk won't acknowledge his thieving ass, and no one on this blog should either.

Charmin-a-hangin said...

Byron, pulling a three day old piece of toilet paper from your crusty ass isn't considered "being in a fight". You stupid pole smoking faggot...

aka "the Otto" says said...

Otto Fleck from now on known as "the Otto"..... your worst nightmare Byron, douche bag, loser fuck.

the Otto said...

FYI, Byron's true last name if Funkfart. Funkfart...not Funkhouser. Fuckfart.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Miss Otto,

You're my worst nightmare? Yeah right. You're just another stupid internet tough guy. I wouldn't want you assholes to like me. Unlike you, I'm not in middle school.

I agree with 11:56am and it can't happen soon enough. The slander and lies do damage to real people. Do any of you anonymous posters ever think of that? You don't like someone so you post anonymous LIES? Tony used to provide a forum for people to be able to give inside information. Now, it's just a negative, harmful hot mess. Wish you had done better, Tony. I really do. And call it free speech if you want, but you are the one providing the unmonitored forum for people to slander and bully others.

Anonymous said...

3:34, you are as big a crybaby as that welfare cheating closet case Byron. TKC might not be to your liking but the blog still uncovers lots of wrong doings in city and county government and politics. The commenters are a different story, but TKC isn't obligated to screen them. Ignoring them will cause them to drop off. Several already have.

It's not libelous (which is what you mean instead of slander, by the way) to say what Byron is, which is an emotionally stunted, bitter person who hides behind a partial disability because he is too lazy to hoist himself up to work. He'd rather take government handouts and comment on a blog based in a city he's never seen than attempt to take care of himself.

9:51 I wasn't talking about Byron. I was talking about several other people who have been dragged through the mud by name. People I know well enough to know that the things said about them are not true and that they don't comment here. Too bad, because their comments would be an improvement over what exists. And since when is what we are obligated to do the same as what is the right thing to do. As I said, Tony provides the forum and allows it to continue. There are other ways and he knows this. Oh, and you don't know me well enough to insult me like that. Tony isn't always right with his facts, either. So get over yourself.
