The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.

I would have started a debate on the difference between "electronic" and "electric" devices.

Comment by Titus Techera on October 16, 2014 at 10:45am

Yeah. It would be hilarious if that damned fan got Mr. Crist back into politics...

Dumbass.  Maybe point out that the clown can't seem to follow the rules.  Object once, at most.  Then, be a grown-up and move on.  You don't throw a hissy fit and hold out off stage like you're scared of the guy.

Comment by Titus Techera on October 16, 2014 at 10:29am

Gov. Scott wanted the people to see Mr. Crist sweat? By the way, if you watch the clip of the debate--in this terrible American fashion, the debate moderator calls Mr. Crist governor! Then he has to qualify, regarding Gov. Scott, that he's the incumbent governor. Yeah, like when you've got four or five presidents on show at an event... Anyway, Gov. Scott said, Mr. Crist had said he wouldn't show up, so why hurry & show up? It was a brief clip--it cut there, he maybe stopped explaining...

Comment by Will on October 16, 2014 at 10:19am

I hope one day someone can explain to me the thing about the fan.  I read the story, but I don't understand.

Comment by Titus Techera on October 16, 2014 at 8:39am

Yeah, weird... Those fans are weird, too.

Comment by Steve Dallas on October 16, 2014 at 8:38am

"I can't debate him, he has a fan!!!!!"

Comment by Pale Horse on October 9, 2014 at 11:37am

Oh, come on. Hopefully we'll get a grown man in the White House in 2016.

And I thought the Biden selfie was bad...
