“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.

Personnel costs, including retirement and medical care for dependants, account for 55% of the US defense budget.


  1. Heck of a Federal Jobs/Welfare Program.

  2. All of those jobs, created by government.

    Mitt, shown to be wrong, again.

    Government does create jobs, and plenty of them.

  3. Best President of my lifetime.

    "I Like Ike"

  4. "Government does create jobs, and plenty of them."

    From my read, a lot of post WW2 prosperity came from rebuilding what we and others destroyed in Europe, which helped pay down the debt we took on for WW2

    Germany just recently paid off that wartime debt. How long will it take the Iraqis to pay what GW Bush said they would pay?

    George wrote a check that the Iraqis have no intention of honoring. Afghanis will do the same.

    Given the price all have have paid , I sure as hell hope the Muslims grab the ring, and I'm 100 percent certain they won't.

  5. That GW Bush lied to US, tosh.2, has no bearing upon the folks he told the lies about.

    The Iraqi people were never defeated by US, they were liberated, they also never promised to pay for the US adventure in their sand box.

    The question is not whether or not the Bush folks lied, it is about the standing Army and million man military the US maintains.

    There's been a whole lot of hiring going on, to stay the course.

    To deny that those in the military have jobs, and to claim the human resources policies followed by the US military do not provide for an abundance of private sector employment, disingenuous.
