So there's this guy. He was a soldier in the U.S. Army in the 60s, and became a CIA Analyst for nearly 30 years. He retired during Bush Jr.'s time in office.

When the Wikileaks cable-publishing thing started happening, he was interviewed by CNN News and asked what he thought of the whole thing. He sees Julian Assange as a hero. Source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQ1TOtApOqY&t=2m55s

Fast-forward to a couple days ago. Hilary Clinton was giving a speech condemning countries who refuse to allow their citizens to protest peacefully. Ray McGovern, wearing a Veterans for Peace shirt, remained standing with his back turned to her as she spoke. He was jumped on by security guards and battered, bloodied, and taken away. As he was taken away, he called out "So this is America"... and Hilary never paused her speech.

Folks, I don't think I need to point out the irony here... or just how twisted it is.
hellfire99x: (Ar tonelico)
I'm typing this up while simultaneously two-boxing in EverQuest, so I'll try not to do too terrible a job. Woot, double exp weekend!!

Today's song is 「大牙の道」 "Big Fang Road," from the Ar tonelico III soundtrack.

I dunno, I just tend to really dig the sometimes flute-y, sometimes harp-y music from the Ar tonelico series. This is one of the earlier exploration themes from Ar tonelico III, and probably the song I've heard most besides the opening theme. I almost wanted to post that instead, but this song ended up being the one in my head all day, so... that's that!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
