But We Thought Socialists Made the Trains Always Run on Time

You gotta love those zany teabaggers. Now the people who went to
D.C. last weekend to protest government-run programs - using
government-built roads, government-funded police protection etc etc -
are complaining
the government-run subway system didn't meet their needs, and Texas
Rep. Kevin Brady has sent an angry letter to the subway czar. The
kicker: Earlier this year, Brady voted against stimulus funds to
improve the Metro. Cognitive dissonance, thy name is wingnut.

"I will demand answers from Metro," wrote Brady to whatever socialist tyrant runs the D.C. subways.

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
