Weird Poll Dept: It seems even fans of Fox News think Tea Party
people are nuts. Asked what they think the movement is about, just 2%
said it was about "exposing the Democrats' socialist agenda" like it's
supposed to be, and a whopping 70% said "Fruitless mix of racism,
conspiracy theories" - fruitless, we suppose, because all those pesky
black people, Jews, gays et al just don't seem to be going away anytime
soon.

 

 

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
