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 Wiz from Ohio and his Ida Hoe
It appears the state MENSA clubs of Idaho and Ohio have decided to get together for a sleepover.
In Idaho BobTue Apr 28, 05:26:00 PM EDT Obumble starts out OK, but what if you were... and then goes on to describe a set of circumstances that are 180 degrees different from those of the Martin/Zimmerman incident. Not even close. Though Obumble uses the term analogy often, I can only conclude that he hasn't got a clue as to what the word actually means.
Worse, he even confuses the facts of the case, something he shares with our whiz from Ohio.
Your training ? You mean in SuperSalesManship ?
You would have called the Police while your head was being into the concrete, and done as they instructed you to do ?
Zimmerman's training came when he joined the neighborhood watch. He was told to observe and report, that's it. On seeing his Martin, he called the police, something that was part of his MO. More importantly, he was told by the police 'not' to follow or engage with Martin. What did the jerk do? The exact opposite, he stalked Martin, followed him down the street and through yards until it led to the confrontation.
What would I do if I saw some asshole following me down the street? I would ask him what the fuck he was up to. If he then decided to ask me what I was doing walking through a neighborhood, I would have told him it was none of his fucking business. Then I would have suggested he go piss up a rope. We would have seen where it went from there.
And we get this gem from WiO,
HE BE DED....
DONE DED AND GONE....
Our Ohio MENSA candidate's channeling Hillary's "We came, we saw, and he's dead", two of a kind.
The question I raised was with your use of the word 'appropriate' in describing Zimmerman's actions not whether the shooting was legal. As I recall, there was not one person on this blog that alleged that Zimmerman should be found guilty of second degree murder. That is a whole lot different than whether his actions were appropriate.
Zimmerman is a moron. We see it in his ongoing troubles with the law. He wanted to be a cop but couldn't cut it. So he joined the neighborhood watch riding around with his gun looking for trouble. Even when warned by the police to back off he just couldn't do it. Sees a guy in a hoodie (ooohh) and decides to follow him, then to stalk him even after being warned off by the police. Zimmerman is a loser.
