“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.

Thursday, June 28, 2007



  1. Mornin' Duece. Let me guess. You're smiling about this gift from Senator Barack Obama.

    Senate Immigration Reform Bill Takes Step Toward the Grave

    But the Senate refused to defeat an amendment offered by Sens. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, Barack Obama, D-Ill., and Max Baucus, D-Mont. It was designed to lift some of the bill's requirements on employers to verify records that illegals present to obtain work. Grassley's said the amendment was designed to reduce what he called excessive compliance costs on businesses. Immigration groups also supported the change for reporting rules they described as too cumbersome.

    The Senate will conduct no more votes on nearly 20 more amendments to the Senate bill until it conducts the next procedural vote early Thursday. The vote, on whether to shut down debate and move to final passage, now appears likely to lose the extra bit of Republican support it had picked up during Tuesday's vote to continue working on the comprehensive package.

    Here's hoping.


  3. (not you Stoutfellow:
    That "Deuce" guy for ruining my day w/that
    Happy Face!

  4. "Immigration groups also supported the change for reporting rules they described as too cumbersome."
    La Raza, MECHA, et al:
    Senator Cornyn said the were surprised to find the new Harry Reid secret ammendments on a
    "Immigration group Website."
    BEFORE THEY, THE SENATORS, HAD A CHANCE TO SEE Harry and Ted's Marvelous Secret.

  5. Or, as honest, Pious, Reborn George puts it:

  6. As 'Rat says, Bubba has to take a backseat to W and Tony when it comes to spin:

    Holding a hard left-rudder Death Spiral for the USA, these spin twins blithely proclaim:
    ...trust us.

    Ingraham responds:
    "Nobody Believes You, Tony! "

  8. Dennis Miller:
    Bring the Funny

    For the second time in the history of the show, we were pleased to welcome Tony Snow as our first guest.
    The White House Press Secretary says he's feeling fine after battling cancer. The conversation soon turned to Bush's immigration plan.

    Miller thinks Bush feels a genuine soft spot in his heart for illegals.

    Snow concurred that Bush is so fervent on the immigration issue because he believes it's the right thing.

    Meanwhile, he also claimed that no one is trying to do more to strengthen the borders than the president.

    Miller retorted by saying that we are a nation that hates line cutters -- if somebody tries to cut, we want them to go to the back of the line.

    Snow maintained that core belief is codified in Bush's plan.

    Hmmm . . . as Miller says, if that's the case then Bush needs to do a better job of telling the public that.
    Bush and Tony are
    and Bush is a lying, traitorous, Scumbag,
    to boot.
    Take your 12 step Jesus and Stuff it up your ass, Mr. Boner!

  9. " no one is trying to do more to strengthen the borders than the president."
    If Massive Metatasis Occurs Anytime soon, I'm spending the rest of my days praying for mercy from my all-powerful, vengeful God!

  10. "he believes it's the right thing. "
    Constitution, Smonstitution!
    I, King George of the Skull and Bones, Declare COMPASSION (as defined by ME) to be the law of the land.
    Submit, or Submit.
    (it's me or them, take your choice)
    Alah Akbar!

  11. "Nobody Believes You, Tony! "

  12. Anyone with a Brain,
    despises you, "W!"



  13. Texan calls on Bush for aid in dealing with illegal immigration problem. Bush replies with amnesty deal.

    I call on you in the
    name of Liberty, of patriotism, &
    of everything dear to the American
    character, to come to our aid with all dispatch.

    William Barret Travis is spinning in his grave.

  14. West Texas was once on W's side.
    Many still claim to love the Bush Family.

    They, however, live with the new reality brought to them by Outlaws Bubba and W, and now are diametrically opposed to Bush Amnesty.

    Bush, the Elite, is above the Reality of the Rabble, and is offended by their lack of compassion.

    Shame on them!

  15. Time for your opinion, Deuce!
    A Happy Face simply will not do!

  16. I no longer read much at BC, so you gotta put down your words of wisdom HERE!

  17. Interesting piece of news:
    WASHINGTON, June 27 — The Senate Judiciary Committee today issued subpoenas to the White House, Vice President Dick Cheney’s office and the Justice Department after what the panel’s chairman called "stonewalling of the worst kind" of efforts to investigate the National Security Agency’s policy of wiretapping without warrants.

    What makes it interesting is that since the Vice President claims he is not part of the Executive branch of the Government, neither he nor his office will be able to claim Executive Privilege..Now I thought Mr Cheney claim of his being part of the Legislative Branch, not the Executive, to be foolish on its' face. The Democrats will now push the point.

    Either the Vice President is not part of the Executive Branch, as Mr Cheney claims, or is. He will not be able to claim not to be, and still not answer these supeanas, or he'll have to comply with that security classification Executive Order.

    Cannot have his cake, and eat it, too.

  18. " One Democrat who never votes against cloture, Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska, also told FOX News that he will vote "no" this time.

    "Enough is enough. There have been seven cloture votes I've voted yes on. This is an extraordinary circumstance. But enough is enough. ... This clay pigeon is looking like a dead duck," Nelson said.

    The clay pigeon refers to the amendments that were introduced as one large package shot into 27 smaller pieces to prevent anyone from being able to block the bill. Critics have said Reid's decision to use the clay pigeon was high-handed, and both Bond and Burr said they don't consider it to be a fair process."
    "Domenici, a one-time ardent supporter of the bill who is up for re-election in 2008, told FOX News that Republicans are "getting hammered here at home and for what? Something that doesn't even have the chance of becoming law? No. This bill is going down. ... Why are we having all these big amendments? They (supporters) don't even know what's in this bill. We learned it's not even enforceable. I just don't think I can support this bill."

    Domenici added that a vote Tuesday night in the House GOP conference was very telling for him. Only 23 Republicans of 201 voted against a resolution of disapproval of the Senate measure."
    These two deserve letters from all of us for demonstrating that people really can tell the truth in DC if they want to.

    DESPITE the LIARS in the Whitehouse.

  19. Goldberg, a longtime Cheney fan, finally had to fold a few days ago.

    As did I.

    Like Bubba, everyone around Mr. Bush either leaves or sullies themselves.

    I guess Liddy should be thankful for his cell:
    Beats Marci Park.

  20. The Left's Pedophile Problem
    (Hawaii Democrats Hired Convicted Child Molester As State Aide)

    In spite of being a convicted child molester, Rouse has received extensive help from many elected Democrats and one Republican. According to the May 22, 2005, Honolulu Advertiser:

    U.S. Sen. Dan Inouye, D-HI, and U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka, D-HI, informed a friend of Rouse’s on Maui that they had written to the Philippine ambassador to the United States. Both the late U.S. Rep. Patsy Mink, D-HI, and U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie, D-HI, wrote to the State Department.

    In Rouse’s home state of Wisconsin, U.S. Sen. Russell Feingold, D-WI, and U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl, D-WI, along with several U.S. House members, wrote letters for Rouse. U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, R-PA, one of the most conservative members of the Senate, wrote to the State Department, as did U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, among the most liberal members of the House of Representatives…

    Former Big Island [Democratic] State Sen. Andrew Levin wrote to the American ambassador in Manila to look into whether Rouse was denied due process. Levin also asked then-[Hawaiian Democratic] Gov. Ben Cayetano’s office for advice about whether the [Democrat-controlled] state Legislature should pass a resolution requesting that Congress investigate Rouse’s plight.

    Former Hawaii State Democratic chair Richard Port wrote a 2005 opinion column in support of Rouse.

    According to an October 29, 2002, article in the Wisconsin gay community newspaper In Step:

    Rouse has been actively pursuing his case from prison, personally and through family and friends, contacting several members of the U.S. Congress for help. Rouse and supporters wrote letters to Rep. Gerald Kleczka, Rep. Tom Barrett, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Tammy Baldwin, Sen. Russell Feingold, Sen. Herb Kohl, and Sen. Daniel Inouye. Personal pleas were also made to the Philippine Ambassador to the United States and other government officials, all to little effect.

  21. I can smell fear and I can smell victory. Hannity emulsified Voinovitch yesterday. He made him look a fool.

    Lindsey Graham is wearing pampers.

    McCain is a deflating balloon.

    And the real sweetness is that Harry Reid is handling the exercise in such a way that makes any Republican who works with him look like a butt boy. For Harry Reid?

    The Republicans in the House have all but waived bye-bye to the bill. Pelosi is not going to defend the dog....so

    Here's the juice. We have all seen the lists of last hold-out group. They are all politicians first, second, and third. None of them will take the count for Jorge.

    The collapse of one will be a route. One falters and it is over.

    Make that last phone call and we will win this thing today. Hoorahhh.

  22. 6 years ago or so on Maui, County officials testified to the great job/character of some scum that molested a 15 yr old girl!
    The court bought it, of course.

    (Marci Park is somewhere in that story above, just for "context")

  23. W molests the Statue of Liberty, and some still pledge their allegiance.

  24. "Make that last phone call and we will win this thing today.
    Power to the People!

  25. Harry Reid makes Tom Daschle look like Slick Willie.

  26. Well, every one of the elected Federal representitives from my District support this thing, glad I did not vote for any of the swine.

  27. Senator David Vitter
    (the Reid Slayer)
    Up next on Ingraham.


  28. Jim Bunning closes out the game on Ingraham soundbyte.

  29. He's the closer, but standing up for MIDDLE America.

    Mr Perfect

  30. Blue blooded Republicans, all, from AZ.
    Mr McCain, the Manchurian Senator.
    Mr Kyl, a lying swine with a trunk.
    Mr Flake, a Morman flake
    Mr Shadegg, should be shagged.

    Where is Austin Powers when we need him?

  31. ..."Senator Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican who is one of the architects of the immigration overhaul, said he also had received threats in telephone calls and letters to his office. Mr. Graham said several other senators had told him privately that they also received similar messages.

    “There’s racism in this debate,” Mr. Graham said. “Nobody likes to talk about it, but a very small percentage of people involved in this debate really have racial and bigoted remarks. The tone that we create around these debates, whether it be rhetoric in a union hall or rhetoric on talk radio, it can take people who are on the fence and push them over emotionally.”

    Some people just do not know when to shut up.

  32. I never did understand what anyone saw in Lindsey Sham.
    Did he do something mean to Bubba, or something, to earn his creds?

  33. The perilous bipartisanship of Lindsey Graham.

    Democrats used to reserve this kind of affection for moderates. But Lindsey Graham is no moderate. He came to Washington as a Newt Gingrich acolyte, served as a House manager of President Bill Clinton's impeachment trial, and is pro-life, pro-gun, and pro-tax cut. According to the standard-bearing American Conservative Union, Graham has voted for the conservative position 91 percent of the time since coming to Congress in 1995, identical to the rating with which Strom Thurmond retired.

    Neither is Graham a maverick like McCain, someone hated by some of his GOP colleagues for his tendency, as one Republican senator described it to me, to "mount the parapet and wave the flag and take the pin out of the grenade." Rather, most GOP senators seem genuinely to like and respect Graham. Indeed, everyone seems to love him. Part of it is just Graham's personality. He carries none of the airs that surround many of his colleagues. His self-deprecating wit and aw-shucks Southern charm are hard to dislike. While not short on ambition, he shares credit with his colleagues and keeps his ego in check by pointing frequently to his own shortcomings.

  34. Graham tells us, we just do not get it.

  35. This comment has been removed by the author.

  36. Laura reports Bush took off his shoes at the Islamic Center:

    What a LOSER!

  37. Ceasar Chavez was rabidly anti immigrant. So funny.
    Mr Chavez knew, beyond doubt, that the illegals undercut his Union workers, kept wages low and working conditions in the fields, poor.

    So much so that Mr Chavez sent his brother and others, to the border, to use strong=arm tactics in an attempt to stem the flow, back in the day.

    Does not have much of a memory, Mr Salazar

    Spin just keeps on spinnin'

  38. Should have just dropped his pants and bent over.
    Probably does, when Prince Bandar visits the Ranch

  39. No Senator in the United States has as much shit named after him than Robert Byrd. It's the Robert Byrd this, the Robert Byrd that, you wouldn't believe it, parks, bridges, dams, associations, schools,highways, byways, on and on. But the state is goin' downhill. Huntington WV has gone from 90k to about 60k. No jobs. Youngstown Ohio has one steel mill left, has lost about 1/2 its population. I'm about 8 hours from D.C. Anybody have any jobs you want me to do? Have____, will travel.:) Take Care.
    By the way, the word is Byrd is ill, maybe deathly, and the Governor will probably appoint himself to the seat if he dies. But he'll have to die, he's probably not going any other way.

    Well, you can eat your sack lunch in the Robert Byrd Park, then walk on the Robert Byrd Path, to the Robert Byrd Bridge, and sleep there for the night I quess. For all I know there may be a day of the week named after the guy.

  40. If Prince Bandar and Vincente came to visit on the same day ...

    My oh my, better get some more KY

  41. Bush is definately attracted to stronger men than himself and wants to be loved. Always looking for love in the wrong places. If I had the time I would do a looking for Mr. Goodbar Post. I have the art-work already worked out in my head.

  42. They've turned the phones off.

    I'm so Proud of Youse Guys.

  43. 53 voted "No"
    Debate continues
    or the measure is pulled from the calendar.

  44. His Ass, it is.

    That Motherfucker is DEAD, DEAD, DEAD!!

  45. We stuck this one up the Ass of the President, and the "Leadership" of Both Parties.

    You think the World won't notice this one?

    Way to go, Guys; YOU DID GOOD!!

  46. Steyn:
    "Sentimentalization of the faultless Illegal."

    "Former Senator Graham."

  47. They finally had to turn the phones off.

    This was a Great Win!

    We're NOT going to ship all of those workers back; but, maybe, we can slow down the bleeding, take a breath, and figure out where we are in all of this.

    A little Border Security, Deportation of a few "Felons," and I think everyone will be in a much better mood to talk.

    Oh yeah, we need a "New" President. This one wore out his welcome when he kept lying to his constituents. If we'd wanted a Liar in the White House we could have all stayed home and let Gore and Kerry win.

  48. Six of one, rufus, half dozen with the others.

    Build the fence, secure the frontier, then figure out what to do with 20 million that are here.

    Much like Iraq, Mr Bush wanted the "End Game" before the opening sequence was completed.
    Putting the cart before the horse, time after time, seems a trademark of those down east Texicans

  49. Yep, Rat; I don't know what's so tough about that. First, you do the "First" thing, and then, you do the "Second" thing. I can't imagine why they'd do it any different where Bush, or Kyle, come from.
