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.

Superbowl of US Embassy attacks was so exciting Sunday, the dumb part of FUKUS decided to keep them closed an entire week. I have a great idea: Let’s keep them closed permanently
AND OF COURSE THE MAJOR EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO MANKIND IS CRANKING UP:
What do we need Embassies in these countries for in the first place? Target practice for al Qaeda? To issue visas?
We love immigrants, millions and millions of them especially the illegal ones. The collective genius of Congress gets misty eyed over the border hoppers and is following all over itself to do everything they can, with your money of course, to accommodate them so that it improves their self image.
No embassy, no visas, no need to wait in line and we all know and have been reminded that diversity is our strength. Let’s keep the embassies safe and closed and get more diverse by not bothering with visas in the first place. That problem solved.
If you have ever travelled overseas or lived outside of the country, you will know that a US Embassy is worthless to American citizens, other than to remind you that are not a citizen but a subject. You will wait weeks for an appointment, hours to get in and get seen by the wrong person that doesn’t do what you need done. After they don’t do that for you, they will ask if there is anything else that they can’t do for you and recommend that you do everything else on www.state.fukus.gov or you can always call 24/7 at one of their convenient numbers that will be busy or give you a real hosing with their .gov created voicemail.
There are many reasons to keep the embassies closed permanently but the big pita is that the primary reason for the embassies being there is to advance US Government interests which coincidentally are 180 degrees out of sync with yours.
