To A Socialist Thanksgiving

Abby Zimet

Happy Thanksgiving. In memory of my mother, who always loved it, I turned on the Macy's parade just in time to see Arlo Guthrie singing "This Land Is Your Land" – and then getting cut off mid-soulful-note for Kermit, then Ronald MacDonald, then endless blathering heads. So it goes. With hard times all around, give thanks where we can; work to better the rest. For most of us, the common good remains the golden rule. Then there's Fox News: See them explain how socialists almost ruined Thanksgiving. Peace.


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
