Chickens For Checkups

Abby Zimet

Need medical care? Heed the advice of Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sue
Lowden, who has said that Americans don't really need health insurance -
they should barter with their doctors for care. Write her
with your ailment and what you'll trade - say, 50 bushels of barley to
take care of your gout - and Chickens for Checkups will make sure she
gets it. It's the old-timey way!

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
