Roosevelt and Stalin, Sitting In A Tree

Roosevelt and Stalin, Sitting In A Tree

Abby Zimet

Can we go any lower or loonier? Now Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) is ranting that FDR was a commie who did "everything he possibly could" to replicate Joseph Stalin. Oh yeah, and the Supreme Court has "no clue" about the Constitution, all in the name of blasting social welfare programs because they  imply that the job of government is to help the governed. Sigh.


Independent media 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 our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
