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. - A new report, conducted by an independent review board, concluded there were major faults in the state department and security at the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya :

    Gee, who didn't see this coming:

    "Despite all the criticism, the board found no U.S. government employee had engaged in misconduct or ignored responsibilities and did not recommend any individual be disciplined."

    Four Americans dead, EVERYONE screwed up, but NO ONE's to blame? O-kay...

    Biden? Really? Good Lord! The man can't remember what he 'did' with over half a Billion in taxpayer 'stimulus' money! Hell, he can't even remember what STATE he's in half the time! This should turn out well... not!

    Comments from the article:

    jcdanielson: "Unfortunately we are led by people who take every opportunity to push their political agendas. Using a tragedy like this to push those agendas is the work of charlatans. biden, being the joke that he is, will be the perfect leader of this ‘snipe hunt’. They have already concluded what they are going to do they just need some cover. Instead of waiting on the investigation by the police they will go on their merry way of manipulating emotions to come up with something that will not solve the problem. Gun control is already on the agenda with no mention of cultural ills that are just as much a contributor to this tragedy as anything else."

    wildandblue: "Well, let’s see, a mother who didn’t lock up her guns allowing her sick son to kill people. What do you think Biden can possibly come up with? This had nothing to do with gun laws and everything to do with stupidity. Putting Biden in charge of stupidity isn’t a bad idea, it’s all he knows."

    Commonsenseparty: "This shooter had 10 minutes or so once he entered the school to the time he shot himself. Anyone could do a lot of damage regardless of the weapon in that amount of time against totally defenseless victims. Why is it that worldwide these high profile mass killings all occur in advertised “gun-free” zones?"

    "White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement that Boehner's alternative still "doesn't ask enough" of top earners."

    Ask? Thieves do not ASK... they take! This class-warfare taxation is nothing more than legalized theft.

    This insanity will be added to the automatic tax increases on ALL of us, when Zero'care' kicks in... I see the UE rate going up, up, up.

    Obama/Dems absolute refusal to agree to any MEANINGFUL spending cuts will turn our kids and grandkids into GOVERNMENT SLAVES.

    Greece - move over - here we come!
