I'm loving the topic Mem & I were assigned.

This is going to be a lot of fun.

Sheesh, how can you love that? Obviously, Constitutionally, Santa Claus, both by established residence and date of birth, is not allowed as a valid Presidential Candidate, by US law. Even if you establish "mythological connotations" to his supposed place-of-birth, it's still a slam-dunk for MemoryShock. Do you have a valid birth certificate to show? I'm not talking about a "certificate of live birth"!

Come on, get with the program!


(I just want to stir up an interesting fight; I'm suspending my normal rules about strategically commenting about debates-in-progress, for purposes of being an instigator).

I'm arguing the con position on this.

Oops! I meant, of course MemoryShock has no leg to stand on! Never mind that the vast majority of the voting public has known of, and thought fondly of 'Santa' since they were old enough to speak.

Wow, this is just like Christmas, these 'Holiday Skirmishes'. I find myself undermining my own arguments by my ranting.



(Intrepid, if you're reading, that statement was just clever ploy to lull you)

Well this is a great start. My whole post went poof.

I'll tell you what you're missing when that debate is over.


Edit to add:
Oh Mem is on pro isn't he. Mem's exactly the guy who would find the argument I'm thinking about. Should be a good debate.

You may be confusing my role here, with "being insightful" or "being helpful".


MemoryShock is a sharp cookie - of course he won't miss that.

You guys have already finished our debate before the initial opening reply is up.

Let me know how the judges come back with it.

Little know fact, Santa's full name is Santa Abdullah Claus.

Nice hint SDog, but that's not the part you're missing.

Now that we are up and running, we don't need to discuss the debates in an open forum.

Closing Thread

Just wanted to post this here for posterity...



Four Holiday Skirmishes were the top flagged in the past 24 hours, give or take...granted, it was a bit of a slow day (
) but impressive nonetheless (And the Ornage/Ashley debate is there now).

Nicely Done Everyone...


Reclosing...back to the FCP everyone!
