“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

The Saturday Night Juke Box

whit on the way to Saturday night at the EB.

The Elephant Bar's
Saturday night Juke Box


  1. How do you like the jeep Rat sold me from two threads back? I looove it!

  2. Fish fear me and women want me!

  3. The Florida Gators are putting an old fashion wood-yard whipping on my Seminoles. Its 31-12 in the third quarter. The highlight for my team so far has been a 60 yard field goal to end the first half.

  4. 48 Minutes! cool.
    Where are the copyright police?

  5. One Black Cow for the Lady. Coming right up!

  6. Hey, how'd you get the picture of me and my trap wagon?


    Idaho won the scrub brush award. Did make a successful on side kick, at the end, but then 'stalled' on the drive, so ended up being flushed down the toilet by Utah State. Was a good game though, we coulda won, if it weren't for those 4 turnovers.

  7. US Navy Charters more jet fuel to the Gulf, doubling its normal requirements.

  8. 'D.B.Cooper' mystery partially solved. Did a HALO(high altitude low opening) jump out of back of a 727 at at 170 lilometers per hour, 10.000ft, opened about 2,000ft, to avoid radar from tracking Air Force jets. Survived. Had about 25 pounds of twenty dollar bills. This guy was probably CIA trained army vet from Vietnam experience. They used to do this in Laos,Cambodia. Guest won't reveal name of guy at this time, says he is still alive. Between 5'10 and 6', smart guy college grad from Portland area, spent four years in Nam as paratrooper. Very skilled jumper. Loner. Unmarried. Coast-to-Coast:)

    66 years old right now

    FBI has DNA off D.B.'s tie that he left in the plane, using it to eliminate suspects....

    Cooper lives!

  9. Bobal: Cooper lives!

    A kid found about $5,000 of his cash under the Scoop Jackson bridge at Vancouver (verified by serial numbers on the bills). That eliminates him landing north or west of the Washougal River watershed. The plane was on its way back to Seattle, so it probably didn't get any further east than the Clark-Skamania county line. That means he landed right in the country where I used to go hiking, the line of Cascade foothills that rise just past the suburbs of Vancouver. I know them like the back of my hand. Someday they're going to find a skeleton under a parachute hung up in one of those Doug Firs.

  10. Maybe, Ms T. This guy seemed pretty certain he was still alive. Anyways, I hope you find the rest of the cash, and don't you dare turn it in!

  11. Don't you go blaming ME for Coop's Demise!
    Nobody messes w/SuperDoug!
