Dignity Was The First To Leave


The White House has responded,
albeit mildly, to the inflammatory rhetoric and Nazi comparisons at
town hall meetings by saying protesters are "on thin ice" and should
"take that temperature down a bit." Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said
Obama believes "we can have a discussion in our democracy" with
civility, proving the President hasn't attended many town halls lately.

"I know the president believes strongly that we can discuss these
issues without personally maligning the person that we're discussing
this issue with, that we're doing so in a way that respects the dignity
of each individual."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

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
