Subtly, Profoundly (If Way Late), America Grows Up

Abby Zimet

Today in CD Views, a great, thoughtful piece by David Michael Green about the amorphous but welcome change the Obama presidency brings to the level of our national political discourse.

"Whatever one feels about Barack Obama's
policies, watching his thoughtful, respectful and intelligent approach
to the politics of our time provides a stunning contrast to the faux
swagger, willful stupidity, and inherent contempt for the public of
his predecessor.....
Impoverished, deceived, broken and isolated,
America is finally growing up."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
