“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.

Nobody does the Can Can anymore

In response to Bob on the previous thread, Jenny commented to this:

"… this is something I've been pushing for weeks now, is that both White House spokesman Jay Carney and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice told the media repeatedly that there was absolutely no evidence that Libya was premeditated.

Now we know there was.

It's one thing to say you believe the attack was over a video, it's an entirely different tightrope to walk when you're saying in no uncertain terms that there's "no evidence" of a terror attack.

Other than the tragic loss of life and intelligence, nothing is more troubling about Libya than the fact that the White House narrative blaming the attack on the video actually strengthened and sharpened over time -- over almost two weeks.

Nothing can can make sense of that; at least, nothing acceptable.

Nothing can can make sense of that; at least, nothing acceptable."

Allow me to explain.

Forget the can can. Nobody does that anymore.

General Obama and General Clinton are merely dust covered action figures within the White House souvenir shops and George Bush was roundly lampooned because his dad secured him a safe posting in the National Guard.

Joe Biden is a chipped umbrella stand.

While it’s true General Obama waged a successful guerrilla campaign on Chicago bankers during the war over mortgage loans to bad credit risks, that bloody conflict isn’t widely discussed within our popular media.

Our military heroes haven’t been presidential material for quite some time now and they can’t win those lengthy popularity contests we refer to as elections.

Analyzing our American macho traditions we switched to a Constitutional Matriarchy a few decades back since our American women have the good jobs and can consistently bring home the bacon, as we say over here in God’s country.

And our female American generals are relatively obscure unlike our female White House interns.

Genitalia over generals.

After our forthcoming budget crisis is resolved, all combat will be carried out with paintball guns and our military training will consist of long sessions playing Call of Duty on the Xbox.


  1. .

    And there are those who call this progress.

    Someone cynically mocked cold fusion here recently. The Twinkie's shelf-life is the clearest evidence we have of transcendence.


  2. .

    Thanks, Deuce.

    My comment above doesn't really make much sense now that you have removed your comment about Hostess dropping the Twinkie.


  3. Sorry Q, I’ll Put them up on the next twink.

  4. Well least we can remember what women was like, thanks to the movies.


  5. Divorce can do that to you. Try knitting, or WalMarting.

    I amuse myself by perfecting coy teenage snippiness over my pastel-colored cell phone.


  6. Pretty little hairdo don't do what it used to
    Can't disguise the living
    All the miles that you've been through

    Looking like a train wreck
    Wearing too much makeup
    The burden that you carry
    Is more than one soul could ever bear

    Don't look so sad, Marina
    There's another part to play
    Don't look so sad, Marina
    Save it for a rainy day
    Save it for a rainy day
    Save it for a rainy day

    You never make your mind up
    Like driving with your eyes shut
    Rough around the edges
    Won't someone come and take you home

    Waiting for a breakthrough
    What will you set your mind to?
    We stood outside the Chinese restaurant
    in the rain

    Don't look so sad, Marina
    There's another part to play
    Don't look so sad, Marina
    Save it for a rainy day
    Save it for a rainy day
    Save it for a rainy day

    Save it for a Rainy Day
