Whoah: Blame the Broke and Brown, Not the Banks

Abby Zimet

Yet more appalling sights and sounds from last night's GOP debate. Video of all you need to know: the audience cheering loudly as Cain says the jobless have only themselves to blame; Romney and Perry going at it about who's tougher on brown-skinned "illegals"; Occupy Las Vegas protesters, thankfully, injecting the sole note of reality and telling it like it is.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

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
