Arizona Is Still Nuts

Abby Zimet

It seemed Gov. Jan Brewer and her fellow Arizona wackos might be joining the land of the living when she vetoed a birther bill as "a bridge too far." But no. Working, don't forget, on the taxpayers' dime, now they've approved the Colt revolver as the state's official firearm - because clearly every state needs one more than, say, jobs or education - and given the Tea Party's 'Don't Tread On Me' flag the same legal status as the American flag. Why not, some ask, just bring back the Confederacy and be done with it?

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
