Sticking It To Everyone

Abby Zimet

This year, the fat cats on Wall Street whose venal greed,
self-interest and failures in judgment have led to so much suffering
will earn a record $145.85 billion - an increase of 18 percent
- over last year. Somehow, they still have the chutzpah to cry in their
gluttonous soup over a modest fee proposed by Obama to help recoup
TARP funds. Once more, a rhetorical but entirely justifiable
question: What is wrong with these people?

"We want our money back." - President Obama

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
