What 1st Amendment?

What 1st Amendment?

Abby Zimet

Colorado's freshman Tea Party Rep. Doug Lamborn - who so memorably called Obama "a tar-baby" in the midst of the debt ceiling debate - has responded to critics the only way we knows how: by banning them. Last week, he refused to meet with the NAACP and Move.on. Then he put up a big ole sign telling them to go away. Private Property?! You mean, public, taxpayer-funded property with the stated purpose of you representing them? The worst of times.


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.
