Olive Branch Vs. Big Stick: The Ugly Shape of Things to Come

Abby Zimet

Oh dear. Obama is still talking up the opportunity to "come together and do what's
best for the country we all love" even as Republicans begin to unveil their "bold ideas" to save the economy (give more to the rich) and vow to "stop the liberal onslaught." It could be a long two years. TPM assembled a video, "The Shellacked and the Furious," to show us just how long.

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 outlet. 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. Without Your Support We Won't Exist.
