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.

    The Mayor of San Antonio bashed Romney after telling the sad story of his grandma... and her hard work in menial jobs. It's a great story of a woman who DID pull herself up by her OWN bootstraps and succeeded in America.

    I know I'll get called 'racist' but in that she quite obviously came here illegally - and the jobs he described for her are usually paid in CASH, I'd be curious to know whether or not she EVER paid any taxes.

    You know those pesky things that PAY for the schools - so your offspring can go on to succeed - and end up on stage at the DNC bashing their opponents.
