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.

Screw the Greeks

In 2007 The BBC did a poll to get a view as to how certain countries viewed the US and Israel. When I see these things, I always pay attention to how the polls go in certain countries.

One of my favorites over the years has been Greece.

I worked for an agency of the US Government and served in an official capacity in Greece in late 1967. Through a bizarre set of circumstances I was on the wrong side of King Constantine's aborted and incompetent counter-coup in January of 1968 and I was declared "persona non grata" and given 48 hours to get out of the country.

That did not particularly bother me, because the January weather of 1968 was quite unpleasant and I was personally appalled at the degree of anti-Americanism in Greece especially from the intellectuals and elite. I was pleased to leave.

That anti-Americansism led to the assasination of CIA station chief, Richard Welch in 1967, and many other terrorist incidents since that time. Not much changed over the years and in 2007 a BBC poll showed that Greece had an 11% positive opinion and a a 68% negative view of the USA.

The USA owes nothing to Greece. If the socialists in Greece go broke, that is their doing and their problem. The US public should know that Greece is no friend of the US and has never been.

US taxpayers should do nothing for Greece. Give them nothing. They deserve even less.


  1. US taxpayers should do nothing for Greece. Give them nothing. They deserve even less.

    Seems reasonable, to me.

  2. I don't trust any people whose women have more hair under their armpits than me.

  3. Drudge Report says suntans are illegal in Iran. The wife asks, how would you get a suntan, in a burka?

  4. I don't trust any people whose women have more hair under their armpits than me.

    I do. The Amazon Women were good people. Myth says, they flung one breast over the shoulder and fought like hell. They must have a lot a hair under their armpits. But I think it's just a psychological image. Some of these women are tough as hell.

  5. "In some areas of north Tehran we can see many suntanned women and young girls who look like walking mannequins," he continued. "We are not going to tolerate this situation and will first warn those found in this manner and then arrest and imprison them."

    Screw the Iranians, I say.

  6. This gal gives a whole new meanig to F' you And the Horse you rode in on AND your pig, AND your Jack Russel Terrier, AND "did I tell you I got the clap?" Sorry about the Terrier.

  7. what would be the connection to the EU's seemingly mindless & endless monetary contributions to Greeks and the Palestinians? neither seem to make sense.

  8. The President has heard you Deuce. He is Sending in the Cavalry

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates has authorized two C-130 aircraft to be used as part of the Homeland Security Department's effort to get at the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said Friday the C-130s are part of the 910th Airlift Wing, which is a reserve unit based in Youngstown, Ohio. The planes are equipped with what is known as the Modular Aerial Spray System (MASS), the same chemical the Coast Guard is using on the oil slick.

    The 910th will stage its mission our of Lake Charles, La. Morrell said the planes are able to treat approximately 250 acres per flight and they expect each aircraft to fly three flights per day in support of the Homeland Security-led operation.

    Well perhaps it's more like a pair of troopers that he is sending. But 250 acres per flight!? That is pitiful. Rufus probably has more than that in soybeans. This promises to be a major disaster for the fishing and tourism industry along the gulf coast. Down here we're all dreading the thought of all the pristine beaches from Orange Beach AL, to Panama City Fl on down to Sarasota being ruined. We're talking the finest white sand on any North American coast. Surely Obama's late and tepid response to this will come back to bite him on the ass.
