    Debate Meet-up?

    I am curious if anyone knows of a place that is showing the next Presidential Debate? And if anyone is interested in getting together, a group of us, some food, some debate watching, and a whole lot of OC'ing?

    I am willing to travel a reasonable distance, my spouse and me.--I'm in Seattle, not a cup of coffee.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    Would be a good idea, just need a location really, that I cannot provide however.

    I wonder if we could hijack a Starbucks and ask them to run the debate on the inside television, anyone seriously interested in this idea?

    You could bring a laptop and stream it.

    This could be fun. I wish I was close. I'm third generation from the Enumclaw/Buckley area, but alas...

    As for not being a fan of the two teams in this game, it would be like doing a football game when your team isn't playing, but two teams you dislike are, but you are with friends who like those teams. You get to appreciate the zingers from both sides.

    LOL....it's not that I am being pessimistic, I just wish to hear a third view contrary to the one of "Government is the answer"...

    There is truth in that, I had no interest in watching the VP debate but did it because my kid had a homework assignment, it was fun pointing out the ridiculousness of both sides.

    So, you wish Ron Paul was going to be debating?
    Jesus thought it was more important to be armed than well dressed:

    Then said He unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his
    scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.~Luke 22:36

    (Emphasis mine.)

    (Note that the word "garment" here refers to an outer cloak, equivalent to today's sport coats or
    suit jackets in that they both provided warmth and conveyed a certain level of sophistication.)

    Or Gary Johnson.

    But truthfully a high school libertarian would beat either of the two main fascist in a debate.

    I skimmed through the responses, and see there are some bites. I was thinking owe could find a place that is showing the debates, some sort of eatery.

    Rev. Robert Apgood, Esq.

    A right cannot be lost by exercising it. McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025, 130 S. Ct. 3020, 3021, 177 L. Ed. 2d 894 (2010) (citing Near v. Minn., 283 U.S. 697 (1931)).

    Although IAAL, anything I say here is not legal advice. No conversations we may have privately or otherwise in this forum constitute the formation of an attorney-client relationship, and are not intended to do so.

    Who can turn a SHAM into a SHAME? It's el-e-men-tar-y for silent E.
