GOP On The Constitution: Just Not That Into You

Abby Zimet

What's In A Name Dept: Republicans love the Constitution. We know thanks
to that pointless stunt last week wherein they spent $1.1 million of
our money to read it in the House. Still, there's this pesky little
problem of fundamental rights and liberties as cited in that august
document. Wait! We know! Let's take them out! So it is that the
Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights,
and Civil Liberties will now be known as the Constitution Subcommittee. Wow. That was easy. 

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
