Dear Common Dreams Readers:
Corporations and billionaires have their own media. Shouldn't we? When you “follow the money” that funds our independent journalism, it all leads back to this: people like you. Our supporters are what allows us to produce journalism in the public interest that is beholden only to people, our planet, and the common good. Please support our Mid-Year Campaign so that we always have a newsroom for the people that is funded by the people. Thank you for your support. --Jon Queally, managing editor

Genuine Quackery, Frightful In Its Scope

More Guns! (And Now Babies!) In a ruling deemed a lethal "revolution in Second Amendment law," the right-wing "court that dark money built" formerly known as SCOTUS has cited dubious 300-year "history" to strip away current gun restrictions protecting a quarter of the populace, likely unleashing a flood of Wild-West challenges to all gun-control measures. The move by an extremist cabal that just decided we can regulate a uterus but not AR-15's was welcomed by this dude strolling the streets of Broken Arrow, who police determined wasn't breaking any laws - until they found his brass knuckles.
