Making A Killing

by

Meet the top .01% of the top 1%: The war profiteers who spent $46 million on lobbying to keep the wars coming and their "job-killing gravy train rolling." The three big CEOS: Northrop Grumman's Wes Bush, who made $22.84 million last year; Lockheed Martin's Robert Stevens ($21.89 million) and Boeing's James McNerney ($19.4 million.) From Brave New Foundation and warcosts.com. For your local Occupy group, so they know who they're taking the economy back from.

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
