Another Socialist Plot

God love Arizona, where Tea Partiers are freaking out - complete with scary, Godfather-themed flyers - because the town council in Fountain Hills voted
to hire a single trash hauler and start a curbside recycling program,
thus leading the town straight to hell and socialism. One Tea Party
group called the move "government telling you what to do"; another said councillors who opposed it "voted to preserve your freedom." Sigh. How low/silly can we go?

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
