  2. Starry, starry night
    Paint your palette blue and gray
    Look out on a summer's day
    With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
    Shadows on the hills
    Sketch the trees and the daffodils
    Catch the breeze and the winter chills
    In colors on the snowy linen land

    Now I understand
    What you tried to say to me
    How you suffered for your sanity
    How you tried to set them free
    They did not listen, They did not know how
    Perhaps they'll listen now

    Starry, starry night
    Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
    Swirling clouds in violet haze
    Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue
    Colors changing hue
    Morning fields of amber grain
    Weathered faces lined in pain
    Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

    For they could not love you
    But still your love was true
    And when no hope was left insight
    On that starry, starry night
    You took your life as lovers often do
    But I could have told you Vincent
    This world was never meant for one as
    beautiful as you

    Starry, starry night
    Portraits hung in empty halls
    Frame less heads on nameless walls
    With eyes that watch the world and can't forget
    Like the strangers that you've met
    The ragged men in ragged clothes
    The silver thorn of bloody rose
    Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow
    Now I think I know
    What you tried to say to me
    How you suffered for your sanity
    How you tried to set them free
    They did not listen they're not listening still
    Perhaps they never will

    Thank you!
    As ever, Thank You!
    His articulation is impeccable!

    After downloading this video, hijacking the audio and listening to it several times, it occurred to me that we may have entered a new era of Heroes, something that many pundits over recent years have pronounced as long gone/dead in the water.

    While there is no uniformly positive consensus about the actions of Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden and their many collaborators, my inclination is to regard these individuals as heroes.

    British Intelligence Specifically Targets Anonymous Hacking Collective | ABC News

    Both the NSA and its British counterpart, the GCHQ, were revealed to have been capable of figuring people's identities by tapping into your smartphone app activity.

    Now, a classified presentation prepared by GCHQ and leaked by Edward Snowden show that the GCHQ and its partners are up to more than just surveillance. The documents were first published by NBC News.

    The Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG) specifically had its sights set on Anonymous, the infamous activist hacker group. Anonymous has a record of temporarily disabling several organization's websites, such as the CIA and the Church of Scientology. One of the ways it does so is through using a Distributed Denial of Service attack, or DDoS.

    The leaked documents show that the JTRIG was ready to fight fire with fire, launching the operation "Rolling Thunder." JTRIG agents issued their own DDoS on Anonymous chat rooms, preventing its users from communicating with one another.

    JTRIG reached out to Anonymous members through email, Facebook and other means to warn them that "DDoS and hacking is illegal, please cease and desist," according to NBC News. JTRIG reports that one month after the attack and the warning, 80 percent of those users were no longer in the Anonymous chat room.

    Nobody in their right mind is going to believe a single word,that ANY Alphabet Agency has to say. If they want a war,and they keep pushing. They're going to get one.

    Even if they were really sure of who all the users were, how do they know that they're not taking credit for normal chat room population churn? Also, if those users weren't in that Anonymous chat room, did they go anywhere else?

    It sounds like someone trying to justify their actions and their budget.

    I think I'll get some buttons made: "I'm not an Aspie, I'm just a jerk."

    I'll be sure to send him one.

    Government planning response (link below) full of fuzzy language, no deadlines, nothing specific, no real obligations says, basically, "we'll be less douchey." But that's still minimally better than FOAD (fuck off and die).
