Tea Party, America Thanks You, Sort Of

Abby Zimet

What with our wildly successful debt ceiling deal, S&P downgrade and all, it's clear the Tea Party deserves more credit than it's getting. Forthwith, a thank you - for our "great recession," for "showing the world that compromise is just dirty Euro-slang for 'surrender,'" for "shrinking government down to the size of your world view."

"Never doubt that a small group of reactionary, xenophobic, corporately-manipulated citizens can change the world."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

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
