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. wow figure that, consider program started under gwbjr, don't wanna dig to deep or the repubs may embarrass themselves

  2. What a wasteful liberal comment. You, like many liberals, squawk with no facts.

    Fast and Furious did not start under Bush; Operation Wide Receiver did. They were two completely different programs. Operation Wide Receiver monitored illegal gun sales (known as gun tracing), while Fast and Furious created gun sales (known as gun walking).
