Re: “Ferguson rally planned for tonight on the Country Club Plaza

Just a tip for anyone who thinks its fun to eff with the cops...

If a cop tells you to do something...FUCKING DO IT.

If you think it is wrong - Call the ACLU first chance you get. File a complaint against the officer. There are a million different avenues on getting a complaint attached to an officer's record. It happens ALL THE TIME. BE CIVILIZED.

The HuffPo reporter that was arrested at the McD's just basically shared this same sentiment on NPR an hour ago. Call the ACLU! Call a Lawyer!

The cops shoot people all the damn time for not obeying their orders. OR they pull the bullshit "resisting arrest" card.

Just do what they fucking say and then spend a shit ton of energy making their lives difficult the RIGHT WAY.

TRUST ME - ITS A THOUSAND TIMES MORE EFFECTIVE THAN GETTING THROWN IN JAIL OR SHOT!!!

Love you KC!

Re: “Jay Nixon finally clears up his schedule to tend to the crisis in Ferguson, but only after getting a bunch of crap about it

Nixon should have immediately called out the Missouri National Guard and ended this fiasco decisively and with great force. You give these people an inch and they will slit your throat. They only know violence and that is how they must be dealt with. Get off your PC butt and get the Guard involved. Nixon is worse than Obama for 'checking out' when mayhem and disaster strikes.

Re: “El Torreon reopens as all-ages space, promises 'good music, no agenda'

I cut my teeth on punk and hardcore shows in the sweltering basement of the new earth coffee house, before I was even old enough to buy cigarettes. I probably went every weekend for two years. That was kind of the final push I needed to go out and buy a set of drums with my high school graduation money and proceed to suck for a number of years. Fond memories of piling in a car, dropping eight bucks, getting knocked around and sweating my ass off in some piece of shit t-shirt I just bought at a thrift store. Never did get to make out with the bible-thumper chicks, unfortunately.

However, the breaks before the headlining act with the old dude in the mustache quietly telling me I was going to go to hell or something about being saved...that sucked. It was like sitting through a shitty band. We had to sit on the floor in the dark and pray or act like it. I looked around and saw all of these kids buying it. Makes me sad to this day to think about it.

The idea of an all ages venue giving younger kids a chance to see live shows and have that experience is a great thought. I just hope they keep Jesus upstairs.

Re: “Jay Nixon finally clears up his schedule to tend to the crisis in Ferguson, but only after getting a bunch of crap about it

Under as yet unknown circumstance, a person is dead.

Since then we have had peaceful protests, which I am for, and looting, which I am against.

Shows of force by the police, which I think are uncalled for, and police being shot at, and firebombed, which I think deadly force should apply.

This has gone beyond what the local police should be trained for, time to bring in the troops. I am against a militarized police force, but public safety must be maintained.

Do these homesteaders/anarchists/writers accept visitors? I want to see what they are doing!

As a 21 year resident of Mission Kansas, I would like to propose a protest movement to put an end to this boondoggle. Any takers?

Re: “International House of Prayer seems perfectly fine that former Grandview Mayor Steve Dennis misappropriated their money

You want to know what would also make a good story? How about the lying, corrupt FBI agent that investigated this whole thing? Look into that & you'll find a story. Talk to anyone in Grandview that knew Steve Dennis and they will only say good things about him. He did SO much for that city and was always helping out. There's more to the story than what's being publish, just having to get passed the corrupt prosecutors & FBI agents to see the truth.

Re: “Royals Fountain Lady says she'd like to return to Kauffman Stadium for a playoff game

I'd be down for her getting in the fountain again. Maybe we can turn it into an annual event, until she gets old and wrinkly at least.

It is abuse from the police and now we see abuse in the judicial system. Does anyone within the system care about JUSTICE?

Re: “Jay Nixon finally clears up his schedule to tend to the crisis in Ferguson, but only after getting a bunch of crap about it

Meanwhile, security forces in Ferguson are wiping their collective asses on the First Amendment, arbitrarily gassing, threatening and arresting national news reporters covering the daily violence. Dead silence on that from Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster and from Nixon himself.

Re: “Jay Nixon finally clears up his schedule to tend to the crisis in Ferguson, but only after getting a bunch of crap about it

I don't know what happened in Ferguson the night this young man was killed nor do the readers of this post or media outlets flaming the fire of this story. With multiple investigations going on by the police, FBI, Justice Department, one would think the facts will come out and justice will be served for whichever party ends up being responsible. I'm not pulling for either side to come out on top of this terrible event and I don't understand how judgement can be passed by anyone. Of course if there were not rioting in the streets going on, this story would not have garnered nearly as much time and attention in the media. It's pretty obvious who is benefitting most from this current mess.

Re: “El Torreon reopens as all-ages space, promises 'good music, no agenda'

To continue the legacy of what has been happening there since 1927, you will have to allow booze, drugs and real rock n' roll, punk, metal and hardcore. You'll have to turn your heads when kids are smoking. You'll have to be ok with swearing, smelly punk rockers and the occasional fight. You will also have to host bad ass music and nurture the subcultures that the music spawns. Chances are, you will do none of this because you're a church. You will not even be able to draw in the acts that come from said subculture. It's sort of a disgrace to even call it The El Torreon... And please don't call it the second coming of The New Earth Coffee House, because you'll never recreate that either.

Just my two cents

Re: “Miley Cyrus dropped a lot of f-bombs and sang like a maniac last night at the Sprint Center

She didn't just encourage girls to make out with their friends so boys could watch. She encouraged everyone to make out with the person they love. I was there and made out with my husband. It was a sweet moment, like a kiss cam at a sports event. Miley & her staff are crazy talented! Great show! (I'm 37 years old.)

Re: “Novel nominated for Bon Appetit award

Congrats. THanks for coming back to KC and setting-up shop here, rather than NYC where you just wouldn't have been appreciated. Novel is what KC needed.
What a hard-working crew with a great sense of hospitality.

Re: “Jay Nixon finally clears up his schedule to tend to the crisis in Ferguson, but only after getting a bunch of crap about it

So, are we once again playing "Guess the Party?" The only hint comes in a reference to "media outlets ... sometimes sympathetic to Democratic politicians..." (BTW: MSNBC is sympathetic to Democrats only SOMETIMES?) You can bet that, if applicable, the headline would start "Republican Governor Jay Nixon..."

Re: “Ikea to open Merriam store on September 10

Well, I for one, am very excited. They have a wide array of accessories and home furnishings with actual attention paid to style and at reasonable prices. But the good price is made through economical construction and smart shipping, not scrimping on wages and benefits for employees.

Re: “Stage Q&A: Vi Tran talks about his upbringing and how he raised his own Son

This Q&A isn't meant to be a review of Vi Tran's new, in-progress work. Rather, it's a vehicle for learning more about the man behind the persona, as well as about his process. Actors put themselves out there emotionally, which, to me, seems difficult enough. When performers — male or female — add physical exposure onstage, I'm curious to know the process, thinking or feeling that went into that choice. In a conversation about process, I'd have been remiss not to ask Tran about his choices in such a circumstance.
