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. I've talked with some of those poor people affected by Sandy...

    Seems like that photo op was ALL they got. Better than ten days out and many are still w/o power or nat. gas. And now this snowstorm.

    Oh, and it looks like Sandy/Christie DID help the Preezy - in exit, polls 42% said his 'response' to Sandy WAS a factor in the way they voted.

    Anybody seen this on ANY Lame Stream Media? Wow! What a difference a day makes... or not?
