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.


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.
