Rodney Hammond, I have to agree with you totally. I have a medical discharge for the Air Force, with a DD214, and sadly do not receive any benefit from it to assist with employment-in an y way. Everytime I seek employment I am asked of I served. I have to say 'yes, but I am not considered due to a medical discharge." I have suffered, and suffered, living here to get ahead because of the vast job market letting vetereans with vets points exceed past me, and it totally sucks. Just once I would love to be allowed employment on that merit alone, so I can have a gainful oppurtunity that would allow me a life of no suffering.
Rich Tosches is clearly a gifted writer - however he wastes his talent by focusing on divisive political issues versus communal city-wide issues.
Do some good Rich - make our city leaders better!
Joe Atencio! You have a little crush on Tosches don't you? I should point out that The Independent is not a "funny" paper and it is not really a newspaper either. The advertisements therein confirm that it is not even independent! Tosches does not tell or write jokes. He writes one joke each week which is called a "column" but it should not be confused with "humor".
Elaine Brush obviously has a derision for The First Amendment as well. Who does she think she is to tell another person that their comment "went over the line"? Her complete lack of knowledge is indicative of the proliferation of stupidity and ignorance. A recall election is how this system is supposed to work and once again the Socialists feathers are showing as she bemoans the recalled acting on their own agenda not their constituents as being the right way. Could you be little bit more wrong Ms Brush? Yes! The expression commonly said is "An armed society is a polite society". Anti-Bill of Rights people show that they have no compunction about being impolite. All the Elaine Brush' are free to leave and settle in a country that suits them but none are free to take anyone else' Rights away. A random act by a lunatic does not make gun owners guilty of anything. Mind and tend to your own as a lunatic's family should have done and then the problems are handled before they become tragedies. Nobody else, not even police will ever protect you Ms. Brush and that is the simple fact so many of your kind fail to grasp. By the way, the use of firearms in self-defense occurs every single day in America far out-numbering the illegal use. Do some research please. Using a firearm in self-defense is the second to last thing anyone wants to do, dying being the last thing.
What about New York City, Thinker? Huge restrictions on guns, low crime rate.

Elaine, cities with extreme firearms restrictions (Chicago, Detroit, D.C.) also have lopsided incidences of gun violence, proving that making an item essentially illegal to possess doesn't have any tangible benefit and that "feel good/do nothing" legislation will never make a positive impact toward reducing the figures.
Besides sophistic reasoning, another common way opponents of equal-rights argue against equal-rights is through the use of the non-sequitur - a seemingly logical statement that equates two things that have absolutely no connection.
The cab driver certainly can refuse rides...but the couple would not be asking him to participate in a religious ceremony that directly violated his own religious belief.
If they asked him to witness their marriage, that would be another story.
By your logic, if the photographer asked them not to get married because he didn't believe in same sex marriage, they should honor his request and not get married at all...the cake slices a couple of ways sweet heart.
