Cry (Lame) Liberty

Cry (Lame) Liberty

Abby Zimet

Lamentably, wingnuts seem to have fallen on hard times along with the rest of America. To wit: A rally for thousands planned by the St. Louis Tea Party has been cancelled after they got only three responses, one from a wise-acre liberal. The rally was meant to mark Obama's birthday, Calvin Coolidge’s inauguration and "USS Nautilus’s first voyage under the North Pole." Hey: We report; you figure out what the hell they're talking about.



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.
