“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.

Human torture in Guantanamo - Courtesy of the US Government


  1. This is truly disgusting and don’t think for one-second the US government wouldn’t do it to any one of us.

  2. Honest to bejesus.

    And you buy all that?

    Well, whatever, I recall an earlier Deuce who once said "What's a little water up the nose?" in reference to getting some life saving info out of those people. Somewhere along the line a great reversal occurred.....


  3. Obama renewed his vow to close Gitmo today. China vowed a new era of austerity, just as soon as they finish building an $11 million giant brass fish.

  4. I never bought into this or anything like it. You believe that because some egomaniac goes from a school board to Congress, where he is bought and paid for by his political donors, that he is either wise or right? How about political appointees? Do you think a uniform gives some superior moral standing?

    I was once assigned to a military outfit that did not exist and spent 2 1/2 months waiting in a foreign country for the military to correct their mistake. What other mistakes has the military made? Iraq maybe? The US government lies about almost everything.

  5. I don't think there is torture going on at Gitmo now. Under Bush they sent them to Egypt to get the treatment. Under Obama I don't think anything is happening in that regard. But then of course I have no way of knowing for certain.

      As if this makes a difference.

      The Italians didn't think so. You have 23 CIA agents convicted in absentia for rendition operations.

      None of them will be visiting the Colosseum any time soon.
