Coming Home
Pere Ubu
Story of My Life (1993)

Yesterday I brought the story of John Napier Tye to Dailykos but it scrolled off rather quickly so I thought I would have another go, adding this bonus article from the Atlantic on the story. But first, a quick recap:

In the July 18th Edition of the Washington Post John Napier Tye, the State Departments former Section Chief on Internet Freedom in the departments Bureau of Human Rights and Labor posted an important op-ed concerned that the Reagan era executive order poses a direct risk to our democracy. While this is not surprising to those of us who have followed the NSA’s success at narrowing the discussion down to various Patriot Act sections, it is important that someone of such credentials is bringing the discussion to the public.

"From 2011 until April of this year, I worked on global Internet freedom policy as a civil servant at the State Department. In that capacity, I was cleared to receive top-secret and “sensitive compartmented” information. Based in part on classified facts that I am prohibited by law from publishing, I believe that Americans should be even more concerned about the collection and storage of their communications under Executive Order 12333 than under Section 215." …

We’re all potential terrorists now!

If you didn’t give two sh*ts™ about our country’s surveillance state, you may just change your mind after reading The Intercept’s latest piece, just published over the past few hours.

Guilty until proven innocent: “irrefutable facts” and “concrete evidence” are no longer required to place U.S. citizens on a terrorist watch list under the new guidelines of the administration’s early-2013 expansion of our surveillance state. (And, good luck getting yourself removed from it once you’re on it!)

Our country’s Orwellian realities just get more outrageous by the minute…

I love palindromes, including numerical (ahem) ones  XD

Defecting Grey
The Pretty Things
S.F. Sorrow (1968)

Sitting alone on a bench with you
Mirrored above in the sky
Wondering if you will say goodnight
Leave me a grave and goodbye

Night sky hangs in blackness
Night threads, patterns weaving
Somebody going tells you they are leaving
Casting the gardens of shadow
Lights flash, someone is driving
Heat exchange, car on a highway going my way

Sitting alone on a bench with you
Talking ‘bout your life and mine
I find and bet you just don’t like snakes
They are just no friend of mine

You’ve seen it all but you’re foregoing
You passed it by but you’re not knowing
You’ve heard it all before, you’re going home
You’ve seen them dying, now they’re all alone

Sitting alone on a bench with you
Dipping my eyes in the stream
Breath of your lips chases shadows away
Clearing the mist from my dream

Sitting alone on a bench with you
Just as you get up to leave
Holding my breath as I touch your hand
Bled with the brush of your sleeve

Sitting away in the morning
Just, just as dawn starts snoring

Sitting alone on an empty bench
Mirrored above in the sky, sky, sky, sky
