About

Room For Debate is a forum created for civilized public discussion on the issues framing our nation’s collective conversation. When important matters are only touched on briefly in 2 minute news segments, or 30 second sound bytes, the public is no longer afforded the opportunity to discuss and discern these matters in a way that leads to consensus or even polite disagreement.

Our hope is that people from all walks of life and backgrounds will use Room For Debate to share their thoughts and, most importantly, carefuly consider the thoughts of others.

“The partisan, when he is engaged in a dispute, cares nothing about the rights of the question, but is anxious only to convince his hearers of his own assertions.” Plato.

  1. Nice guy fallen on hard times. Could any of you find it in your hearts to send me ten dollars?

  2. Sure. Post your real name, address ,telephone no. and an essay no shorter than 500 wds. describing the hard times you’ve faced . Try to make it interesting. Spelling and sentence structure don’t count. I’ll send you the ten bucks; I’ve got room in my heart to do that much for you. If anyone else on this blog has a heart, you should be swimming in sawbucks soon. Luck.
