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. “If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal,” Obama said.

    Of course it's not "optimal" it's "bumps in the road". And people have their panties in a wad over "binders full of women"?

    Wow, what a great game this weekend, LME....Ravens @ Texans. Ray Rice vs Arian Foster.

    Cowboys may get lucky this week at Carolina. I am afraid my Vols will get thumped Saturday though by the Alabama Crimson Tide. 'Bama thumps everybody though.

    Have a great weekend LME.

    1. 32slim32 - I do agree with the sentiment here. Dead Americans is just a bump, but "binders of women" is the new craze. This, of course, (documented well by is propagated by the mainstream media.

      I do think the Ravens vs Texans game is the game of the week. Though you might not know, the Buffalo Bills are my #1 team. I follow the Ravens religiously, but for me, if I had to put them on a scale, it's close: Buffalo Bills: 100, Ravens 99.5 :-)

      I have Tony Romo as a QB on my fantasy team, so I have to root for him. Yah,... I'm sorry... I do think 'Bama will thump them, too. And let it be known, a certain hero in Vol country, Mr. Manning, is by far, my favorite QB of all time. I'm a big Manning fan, and I absolutely think he is the best QB of all time.

      You have a great weekend yourself, 32slim32!
