Defending the Decider, But Not Much Else

Abby Zimet


Next week's meeting of top-dog right-wingers dubbed the Conservative Political
Action Conference (CPAC) will give former
Secretary of Defense Donald 'Let's Invade Iraq and Afghanistan Just For
the Bloody Hell of It' Rumsfeld their "Defender of the Constitution"
award. One question: Whose constitution? Somalia, maybe? Last year they
gave it to Rush Limbaugh. Their estimable schedule, if you'd like to
partake and can stand it, here.

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
