Open Chat... All Day, Every Day! Express Your Views, Debate, and Challenge the Views of Others!

In order to keep up with the nature of free, spirited debate, I wanted to place the chat feature at the top of the homepage. This ensures people can come here and share their views on anything they wish and not have it be related to any specific discussion. Here, people can share ideas, links, and views "unmoderated" and an their own pace. To me, this makes The Elephant in the Room blog truly a place for debate.

  1. Here is a good story from the weekend.

    While 0bama runs around the country saying "Republicans want you to have dirty water",the Federal government is trying to keep the citizens of Tombstone, AZ from having any water be it clean or dirty.

    Amazingly, I would dare to say if they were planning on putting up some of those enviro-friendly windmills in Tombstone the feds wouldn't give a flying flip about the welfare of the Mexican spotted owl. Windmills kill thousands of federally protected eagles, hawks and owls every year.

    How exactly does the presence of back hoe and/or track hoes equate to the owls being harmed?

    Another crazy thought I had; the Democrats are always saying the Republicans want to take us backward. Uh, isn't using shovels and picks going back to the 1800's when we have back hoes and track hoes?

    1. Republicans do want us to have dirty water. They always complain about the EPA and say they will remove environmental regulations. Isn't that what the EPA is made to protect. And if the GOP wants to remove the regulations, can't we imply they don't want us to have a clean environment? Are you that short sighted?
