Small Pleasures: Immigrant-phobic, Minutemen-loving Tom Tancredo - whose 2007 presidential ads charged "aliens" who "froth with hate" with "Pushing Drugs. Raping Kids. Destroying Lives" - arrived

Colorado governor to the tune of "La Bamba," a Mexican folk song by the

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
