“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” - George W. Bush

All The Best


I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.

My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.

At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.

An elephant never forgets.
Be well.

Where Are the White Male Soldiers?

This is a NY Times Photo of Obama at a stopover in Kuwait. Blacks make up 20% of the US Army.


  1. "Aides cited "security concerns""

  2. Why do people think in terms of skin color? I could take one picture of Bush shaking hands at Bob Jones University and say, "Where's all the black faces?" and make him seem like a racist, but the only racist would be me.

  3. Why do people not think?
    Here's an idea:
    Engineer having a baby w/Terrye.
    The Spawn would be the ultimate Black-Hole for intelligence.
    But there I go getting sucked into a color argument again.

  4. when i was stationed in germany in the late 80's it seemed like it was more then 20%. it was my first experience with black muslims. it was also my first experience with disproportionate black male/white female thing. i was very surprised to see the german females paying a lot more attention to the black males. at the time i thought the german women had some sort of agenda back then. boy, they're really into BO though aren't they? would they be if he was white?

  5. Doug: Here's an idea:

    Doug again, different venue:
    Things get better over time; that's how engineering works...Posted by: Doug | Jul 21, 2008 12:14:59 PM

    You got a thang for black holes, or are we lookin at identity theft? Where'd this fixation on engineers come from? BTW, that colonel of the Paras coulda gotten the Washateria going in a few hours with a wink to his Sergeant Major behind the bureaucrat's back. He didn't because he was careerist (at the time). Bureaucrat in uniform.
