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. Wait! al Qaeda in Mali? But I thought BEFORE the election - Obama/Biden ASSURED us 'al- Quaeda's beat down, we've got 'em on the run, they're all in hiding?'

    'They' refuse to use the word 'terrorists' (except for the Tea Party - and 'their' newest declared 'terrorists' - LEGAL gun owners)

    According to 'them', there's NO 'war on terror' and Bush was nuts and evil for saying stuff like that.

    When the 'UN Security Council meets to discuss' anything - it ALWAYS costs the US... personnel, equipment, money, on and on and on.

    Obie-wan, Destroyer of a Nation, WILL neuter OUR military with the help of his good buddy Hagel - who's FINE with lifting sanctions on IRAN - LOVES 'Islam' - HATES the Jews - and BELIEVES it would just be hunky-dory for Ach-Madena-Nutjob to have NUKES...

    ...and the N.Koreans claim they're scared of US?

    Hang on tight - 'four more years' - of Twilight Zone... 'du-de-du-doe...du-de-du-doe.'
