Shame On Those in Power

Abby Zimet

Yet another massive free medical clinic, this one in Kansas, drew thousands
of uninsured people seeking medical help - this, because they otherwise
can't afford it, because the highly-paid, well-insured people elected to take care of American
citizens' most elemental needs are not doing their job and are somehow
getting away with it, because...why, again? The National Association of
Free Clinics assembled over 1,600 volunteers for this good deed. We
salute them. Congress, not.


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
