The Grim Harvester

Abby Zimet

Sorry, but more irresistible Mittens video from Mother Jones: From 1985, Mitt explains that Bain Capital's purpose in life is not to create jobs, like he keeps telling us it is, but to buy stakes in undervalued companies and then "harvest them at a significant profit."

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
