What sort of old hick gets butt hurt at a fluff piece like this and then proceeds to call the staff what amounts to "ugly nerds living in their parent's basements?!"
Since you don't invest in clothing, perhaps you should look into getting a thicker skin.
If you work downtown the dress code is set either by the sleazy attorneys in shiny suits and thin soled shoes or homeless people in combat gear and beards.
So given neither of those groups are respectable, a dress code of blue jeans, clean shirt, and jacket seems the ticket for respectable, tax paying citizens who work for a living.
AWESOME! Rich is my new hero. Go Chargers.
Hey, ABQ has just as much great good, restaurants and culture as Santa Fe. You should visit sometime.
Wild Wolf, according to the dislikes you received, Rich doesn't represent most of us. It makes me feel hopeful that critical thinking skills are on the rebound in our country. You and Rich are uneducated on matters relating to firearms, and even more clueless on how to protect children.
Hey Rich, it's too bad the Principal didn't have a gun of her own...then she wouldn't have had to run screaming at the man who was there to massacre her children. Too much logic for you?
Your wife's secret is safe RR. The three other people and I, who read your column, won't tell anyone.
Tosches just went wherever the short bus took him. When the Indy asked him what qualifications he possessed to get this "job" he told them he was "funny in the head". Boomer49, that zinger you delivered was such that I felt the sting! The sting of embarrassment for you. You want to be like Tosches when you grow up? Sure you do! Now go back in the house and put your pants on already.
See what you started Rich, now there's gonna be a ruckus...hold my hat would ya.
What community college you ask "omegawolf"? The one where your ma served lunch.
What community college did this writer drop out of?
Well Mr Rich Tosches you have shown why I despise so called open minded truth seeking journalist like yourself. You have never served in the military and I am personally offended that you call yourself Ranger as I wore that title with PRIDE in my serve both when assigned to the Battalion and tab after leaving the Batt. I will attempt to enlighten you as to several statements that you made that shows how grossly uneducated you truly are. (1) An assault Rifle is a military weapon that has the ability to fire either fully automatic, or the ability to fire a burst or rounds. (2) the AR in AR-15 stand for Auto-loading Rifle. (3) A Rifle with an internal magazine uses a clip the AR-15 and other such rifles use a magazine that are loaded into a magazine well. Lastly Gun bans, magazine limitations, just do not work. If you did any real research you will discover that these active shooter encounters are the new form of suicide by cop, either the Police will kill these people or they kill themselves. If you truly want to limit gun violence that we as a society should look at a mandatory firearms sentence when a firearm is used in the commission of a crime. This Firearms sentence must be served in full before they even begin the sentence for the crime they committed. Further this firearms sentence does not count towards good time or parole.
When a majority of those who comment on an editorial hit piece make much more salient and rational points than the author, then you know the author is looking to push a narrow worldview and not making an attempt at rational discourse. Or maybe he's trying to make up for an inferiority complex. Sensationalism and Projection in full effect.
For the life of me I can't figure out what Rich Tosches(pronounced Toe-Cheese) is an expert in. Rich, what exactly is it you do? I have all of my teeth, never had a cavity, don't have any cats, live in a house without wheels, probably more educated than you, and could probably write better editorials with a blindfold on, a crayon, and swinging from a chandelier with a half-finished bottle of Patron.
amazing how the anti-gunners are still spewing bile about assault weapons and high-capacity magazines like the one used in the Connecticut shooting.....please pay attention here, Rich, this is important, THE AR-15 STYLE BUSHMASTER .223 WASN'T USED IN THE SHOOTING ! THE RIFLE STAYED IN THE CAR UNTIL THE POLICE REMOVED IT! GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF FEINSTEIN'S AND BLOOMBERG'S ASSES !!
you know you are such a jackass - how many times can you confuse magazine with clip?
Tosches: If you hate The Bill of Rights so much then why do you continue to live in America? Why do continue to equate those that enjoy their Rights to those who murder or threaten violence on others? I feel your scribblings have always been substandard but this montage of words appears to be done under the influence of alcohol, LSD and stupidity along with your standard dose of bigotry. What sort of contract do you have with the owner of this rag that they must continue to include your tripe? Maybe you have photos of the staff down there being "child enthusiasts". Perhaps there is no such thing as Tosches and it is really 100 monkeys in a room of typewriters. I doubt that though because I am sure they would accidentally come up with something far better before lunch than you have ever done or will ever do.
Yes, yet another thing that makes Colorado Springs proud to add to the list:Tosches, the person who incredibly failed both American History and English yet is an expert on one and makes money doing the other for a weekly publication that thinks it is a "newspaper" which is full of ads and yet calls itself "The Independent". Now that is funny but not funny "ha ha".
Tosches believes he writes "humor" but I know he does not and never has. I have challenged him to a "debate" with myself as his opponent but he has not responded. I consider anyone who attempts to infringe on my Rights in any way as my enemy. Tosches has backed down from debating but has not backed off from instigating the loss of my Rights.
The First Amendment has no room for hate speech or brainwashing. Since The Independent is a tool of my enemy whenever I see a stack of them I will take them all. It is my first step in protecting my Rights and I do not care that it is illegal by city ordinance. City government, state or foreign government I do not heed when tyranny rears its ugly head. I cannot allow the tantrums of the press to attempt to rule the People, the people who have the power to stop any assault on our freedom and our Rights.
When The Independent summons their personal city government who in turn will call on their hired guns to come for me please bring a valid warrant and the media. I wish to share with as many as I can what an American can do as the first step in the battle to not be infringed of my Rights. Please join me and spread the word to others that The Independent has got to go. May they now "Celebrate Adversity" and cease with the bigotry. Time to stop the clamor for the loss of my Rights while they abuse theirs to the point of treason.
Rich, I am an US Army Veteran. an attorney and cpa that drives Mercedes, lives in a 4,000 square foot house and has an AR15. Your biased an immature remarks are incredible. I suppose that is why you are stuck writing garbage for such a small rag as you do. Comments like yours only demonstrate your ignorance. Nevertheless, my AR15 will still ensure your right to puke out your vile garbage.
This ignorance of the person that wrote this piece is astounding. But liberals usually think they are thousands of times more intelligent than they actually are.
Yeah, me too am big dum dum. Me only get liddle bit of edjamacation at little collij on Charles River in other liberal state, collij called Harvard. Me may be big dum dum with $20,000 truck, but me know enemies foreign and domestic and this guy is definitely the latter. Over the past 227 years there have been lots of people who have helped make this country great and many who have defended (and died) for us. This guy is not only one who does NOT make this country great, he is one of the many who are trying to DESTROY it. Talk about someone who has no education, this guy is the pot calling the kettle black. I do not live in Colorado, but had been in talks with some financial backers about where to set up a new manufacturing operation in related to health and medicine. Central USA is our focus because of the ease with which we will be able to distribute finished products to all corners of the contiguous 48 while having access to good air freight for sales/distribution elsewhere. Guess which state just got bumped off the list, and now Omaha, Wichita, Kansas City and Oklahoma City are now considered and Denver is NOT. Colorado is NOT business friendly. I would not want to expend venture capital in a place that might decide to NEXT, take away the right to assemble or to speak freely. (The adage of killing the Second first, and the First second.
I empathize with people of CALorado not knowing what has hit them, and the rest of us should take note at what can happen when communists are allowed to take over.
