TKC BLOG COMMUNITY SERVES AS THE LAST FREE SPEECH ZONE IN KANSAS CITY!!!



I believe in America.

By way of this blog I've seen some of the best that Kansas City has to offer and a lot of its worst.

More than anything, what I've witnessed is that the 1st Amendment is close to sacred and serves as a shining light of freedom for the rest of the world.

Don't get it twisted, blogging has its challenges and as TKC keeps gaining in popularity, readers and supporters, there are jealous trolls who abound.



For instance, here's a quick run-down of haters who seek the destruction of our blog community in this quick state of the blog that is a 4th of July tradition . . .

Cafe Trio Girl Power Politicos - Every campaign season this coven of local ladies focuses their anger on the TKC blog community and usually loses their respective elections in the process. Last time around our loose affiliation of commenters and chuckle-heads were likened to Prez Trump . . . Which I guess was a compliment considering the outcome that put a reality show host in the White House.

The Wildman & Friends - A trust fund senior citizen who blew all of his money on ex-wives and drugs has a couple of buddies who mistakenly believe that they can bring down this blog by way of mean and racist spam. It's a neat idea but close to SEVEN YEARS LATER the only thing they've done is bring more readers here by way of their obsession and gossip. Thanks????

Newspaper Burnouts - We're sorry these folks lost their jobs but TKC isn't hiring from the ranks of Dead-Tree media and there's no going back to the glory days of a print monopoly on civic opinion. Rather than blame Facebook & Twitter . . . They focus a lot of their ire here because everybody mutes them via social media. Even worse, they promise never to come back every few weeks . . . And we miss them dearly between their CONSTANT mean comments or spell checks . . .

But there's a bright side . . .

EVERY MONTH FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS THE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY ADDS READERS, COMMENTS, SOURCES AND KICK-ASS DENIZENS OF THE KANSAS CITY DISCOURSE!!!

We could care less about social media shares BECAUSE TKC IS THE ANTI-SOCIAL NETWORK OF THIS COWTOWN!!!

Even better, we're a blog community where criticism isn't personal and ideas are debated rather than profile pix or personal affiliations . . . Like it or not, just like our SECRET BALLOT . . . Anonymous speech is a fundamental part of our Democracy. 

Still, we have challenges that we must confront . . .

SPAMMERS threaten the TKC discourse and whether it's Byron Funkhouser attempting to hijack a thread and make it about himself or N-word guy attempting a low-tech DOS attack . . . Our Free Speech Zone is HAPPY to use the delete function against SPAM that wants to shut out real comments in favor of their repeated chum text.

TKC is a FREE SPEECH ZONE but it's not a free-for-all . . . You can write whatever you like and our tech and helpers are free to DELETE SPAM when it's just low-tech garbage or repeated tripe to shut out the opinion of other commenters. NEVERTHELESS our comments remain OPEN and only the losers, the jealous, the clinically obsessive and failed bloggers get frustrated because their SPAM is taken out with the rest of the trash.

Brief aside . . . My only regret is that I'm always pressed for time and have had to cut back on meeting people and struggle to answer e-mail and other communication in a timely fashion but inevitably I always reply or sent shout outs back when they're offered . . . I'll try to do better in the future but I'm not making any promises. But I digress . . .

Ergo . . .



LIKE IT OR NOT, OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY LEADS THE CRITICAL FREE SPEECH CONVERSATION IN KANSAS CITY THANKS TO FEARLESS READERS, KICK-ASS TIPSTERS & AWESOME DENIZENS!!!

As the lead blogger in charge here, I provide the inspiration and like to serve as a resource for all of the top news stories in Kansas City . . . But it's really YOU that makes TKC great again and again.

Thank you.

Thank you for support the 1st Amendment and the American way.

Thanks for reading.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!

It's hard to hear you over the fireworks but I get your drift.

Thanks for the news, thanks for the bewbs. The other stuff is sometimes interesting, sometimes entertaining and always a bit strange.

I thought the Wildman was doing good business washing cars for the 1%? I guess they don't pay as well as he thought. That's a shame.

I like the jokes, it's obvious that you don't take your critics half a seriously as they take you.

Don't get to heavy handed with that delete key. I am a person of color and I can live with SOME n-word stupidity. I feel like that exposes the racists and the idiots for who they are. What I see is that there are a lot of so-called "liberals" who are much more bigoted they admit and they get just as racist when they don't get their way.

LOL! In your little "enemies list" you didn't mention the Mayor's staff. Always so funny to see them scurry to add comments or try to contradict stuff on their twitter accounts. Pathetic actually.

Jonsie said...

I like your blog Tony, but I just read it for the TITS. Big old juicy ones. More of that PLEASE.

great blog - keep up the good work!

Given all the news lately about some academics and others boldly stating that some speech shouldn't be permitted , you better fight for the first amendment.
When dr Laura made some comment on her show some years ago that didn't sit well with a gay activist , that activist demanded "if we can't control her, then we shod destroy her".
That's the current condition of free speech
If you don't speak the approved left wing mantra, you don't get to speak
I sometimes wonder if in two generations if free speech will even exist?

Love 'em or hate 'em Gawker and TKC represent the First Amendment. Perhaps it is hard, if not impossible, to defend some of the stories they present. But that is what Free Speech is all about and not some politically manufactured faux civility.

I expect it from the conservatives to try and suppress free speech. But liberals lead the parade to keep opposing opinions from being expressed.

9:23, So, we see you found a little time to post here, between wanking off Louie. Are you the fireguy on heroine that snoozed in the middle of the freeway while you had your little kids with you? Oh, yeah, old news, I know. But, ya got a thing for it.

Great blog, good INFO-tainment. If you don't like it, don't read it.

Thanks for the work you do.

Looks to me like most of what you call spam is legitimately people who have realized the magnitude and severity of the defective negro problem and wish you'd address it instead of blaming police and politicians.

Why not address it instead of chickening out behind your delete button?

Jameson said...

The same bs comment over and over is just spam. Tkc talks about all kinds of stuff and if you don't like it or feel like your concerns aren't being addressed, than start your own blog and see if anybody cares.

da' man said...


first, you're full of yourself. but we've known that. for years. it's not just tiresome but extremely so. all the ALL CAPS and "Told you so!!" God, don't even you get tired of this shit? don't even you get tired of your own bullshit? how old are you?

second, a "free speech zone" that lets every ugly, ignorant, hating racist spew his/that racist, knuckle-dragging filth in the comments is no way anything to celebrate.

Is that why you're here in the middle of the night on a holiday? You should just admit you are a fan and you're hooked. No shame in it, a lot of this stuff is funny.

Free speech my ass

TKC, if you delete the loser who posted that Louie Wright crap last night, then leaving 10:12^^ in the posts is wasted. I hate that whiny Louie ass-suck crap, too.

To cut to the chase.... Tony will promote crazy shit like Jackyl Da Ripper and if you question if his marble are all in place it is simply him exercising free speech. However, if you have valid arguments or opinions that go against the slant he is trying to create it will be labeled SPAM and removed even when it is not spam. Everyone knows this so lets knock off the FREE SPEECH snow job. Every fucking time Tony thinks there will be an infusion of folks reading his blog he and that imaginary hag biotch fake friend of his purges comments and tries to sterilize the contents around to his way of projecting "facts". So write thirty paragraphs of bullshit if you wish, but in the end IT is SPAM for a fact!!!

I'm old and crippled up now and can't imagine life without you, TKC. Thanks!

TKC is too forgiving. My favorite activist always said when you win, emasculate the losers. But of course if you are fighting the Toot Toot you are fighting guys with eye balls and no others. I've noticed that the horn on the Toot Toot seems like a lovers crooning Tooooneey Tooney Toe neey.
