All The Best
THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED
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.

The future of the Republican Party
There is a lot of talk about, much with glee, about the inevitably of the demise of the Republican Party, a white male ever being president again and the adjustment of standards to accommodate the growing Hispanic population.
Most of the expansion of the Hispanic population has come from illegal and unfettered immigration.
We have the absurdity of rewarding law breaking with modifications of our own society. We need to change in order to satisfy the needs of a dependent class because they are in the US illegally.
What exactly are we supposed to do? Why are we supposed to do it?
The simplest way of course is to capitulate and join the Democratic Party or better yet, borrow their ever changing and ever demanding agenda, photocopy it and call it Republican. Up until the appearance of the progressive baby boomer generation, there was a common practice of cultural acceptance and adaptation of mostly European immigrants to the dominant US language and culture. That all changed under the Kennedy’s.
Immigration was turned on its head to satisfy a kaleidoscope, no, a piñata of third world cultures that came to the US, resistant to accept the prevailing culture. Some called it, celebrating diversity. Some called it cultural suicide. Make your conclusions as to where it has brought us.
If I understand the argument, the bad white part of the American population has to get with it and do what they are told or be marginalized. They are to be parted from more of their property and give a more fair share of their property to a noble needy class. World standards trump American standards. To resist is to be racist. It is impolite to notice and mention that you have noticed the change.
I suggest plan B.
Since diversity and immigration is the future, let’s get it on. There are tens of millions of Poles, Ukrainians, Russians, Czechs, Greeks, Italians, Estonians, Lithuanians, Latvians, Indians, Japanese, Moldavians, Serbs, Cubans, Romanians, Jews and Christians in Arab lands, Koreans and Slovaks that would love to come to the US and overstay their visas. Let them. Encourage them. Bring their talents, their money and their education to the US.
Lets celebrate diversity with people that will accept our values and strengthen our culture. You will not have to get these people to learn English. In fact, you will not be able to stop them. You will not be able to stop them from saving money or building capital and businesses. They will create jobs, improve real estate values, improve schools and communities. They will also vote. They will understand what it means to be an American and will say so.
How would you do it?
Since the intent is political, it needs to be done on a state by state basis. Texas, California, Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Florida, Virginia, Georgia and the Carolinas would be perfect candidates as they have the known attraction, economy and size to offer and receive economic and political opportunities from these future American Citizens.
Bring it on.
