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. Bill Clinton: "I don't want to raise anyone's taxes in a recession. We should extend the Bush era tax cuts for all."

    Ring Ring

    Bill Clinton: "Hello?"

    The Democratic Party: "Hey Willie, uhhh, yeah. We're going to have to remind you that the health of the country comes second to the party."

    Bill Clinton: "But this is what I believe. It's a recession. We really can't raise taxes for anyone when we're slowly coming back from a recession. The recovery is fragile."

    The Democratic Party: "Biiilllll... You know better than to side with the other guys. You can't back them. If you did, how would we lie our way out of it. Sound policies or not, we must stick together."

    Bill Clinton: "But..."

    The Democratic Party: "But nothing. We will disagree with them no matter how much their policies would help this economy."

    Bill Clinton: "Yes, sir."

    The Democratic Party: "So we are going to need you to go ahead and give a big 'I'm sorry' in another interview. And remember, party over policy."

    Bill Clinton: "Yes, sir."

  2. Did you hear Obama's press conference today?

    The economy sucks. It's going to continue to suck. It's Europe's fault. It's the GOP's fault.

    What a freaking joke.
