Barack Obama, Thomas Jefferson, Lincoln, et al: Viva la Vida

As I reflect on the meaning of Independence Day, I cannot help but to see the stark contrast between the freedoms which we as Americans have come to take for granted and the situation in Romania, where the Romanian people struggle to live day by day under the capricious and self-serving will of oligarchs and authoritarians and a corrupt and impetuous government.

Five cent tour for Patsaks:

Moby’s sixth studio album, Last Night, is scheduled to be released this year on March 31st (UK) & April 1st (USA). Find the link below to download the sampler.

“One of electronic music’s most visible and talked-about figures by far,” Moby has a social network of tens of thousands of fans, worldwide. He is highly opinionated about politics and he communicates his political opinions to his fans via his journal at his highly trafficked website, http://www.moby.com.
