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. The payroll (SS tax) cut was a temporary ploy, specifically designed to buy votes... personally, it was a fiasco for me as I ended up having to re-do my tax form w/my employer, so we (who file jointly) wouldn't end up OWING at the end of the year.

    They took that revenue from a program that's ALREADY in trouble - to buy votes. It needs to expire.

    $1000 a year breaks down to $19 a week - that's what? four gallons of gas... big whoop.

    I see the VERY SAME people who cry about this - playing Angry Bird on their iPhones while standing in line to buy the Brand New and Imporved iPhone 5!

    ... priorities people.
