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. Great Show LME

    I know some here are agnostic, but as Americans we can each reflect in our own special way for the families affected by yesterday's terrible events in Connecticut.

    The first I knew of the horrible tragedy was when our daughter called me from CO in tears. She was due to drop off her daughter - our granddaughter - at her Kindergarten class in about an hour and was understandably shaken.

    As I switched on the news, we talked about this and other incidents, including the Aurora, CO shooting which occurred, basically, her own back yard.

    And we asked the question: Why?

    The simple answer is that deeply disturbed, evil people walk among us.

    The problem is - until they act out their insanity - they're not identified - and WHEN they ARE identified they're NOT removed from our midst.

    Facts are coming out that this young man WAS disturbed, the Aurora shooter WAS disturbed, the Gabby Giffords shooter WAS disturbed - but they were ALL STILL allowed to roam about freely.

    This all started 'way back when' the liberals decided those 'poor people' (the crazies) were being 'held against their will'.

    And the liberals' answer to this problem is NOT to contain and treat the crazies - it's to outlaw the guns.

    To me, this seems 'out there' from a president who, along with his family, is protected by details of HEAVILY armed Secret Service agents.

    Bloomberg, who again used a tragedy as an opportunity to push his OWN political agenda - also has his OWN ARMED security.

    Guns don't kill people - (crazy) people kill people.

    IMO - our society has lost its way. We've strayed from our roots - and we're reaping what we've sewn.

    And I'm NOT talking about religion - or God - I'm talking about conscience, or soul, that little light inside us - that TELLS us the difference between what's right and what's wrong. Those values and principles that we should have been TEACHING our children to live by.

    The very same people who cry out against and blame 'conservative gun and God lovers' rejoice in abortion-on-demand laws.

    They refuse to allow 'bad actors' to OWN their own behavior, insisting that 'others' take the heat.

    They promote violence and high sexuality in movies, video games, music, etc. They praise the Occupy movement with their destructive behavior - and turn a blind eye to union violence and rhetoric.

    Banning guns will NOT 'fix' what's wrong in America today. If you outlaw guns - only outlaws will have guns.

    We can NOT legislate morality and/or values. We MUST return to teaching these to our kids.
