Listen up, 1%ers: Your Christmas fantasy gift awaits. Neiman Marcus' Heritage Hen Mini Farm offers a custom-made multi-level, "bespoke Versailles-inspired Le Petit Trianon" hen house with playground, nesting area, living room, library, chandelier and of course your very own "specially chosen flock," which kinda of makes them sound Jewish, but we digress. For just $100,000, with a teeny tiny sliver going to a Florida-based heritage livestock conservancy group. Let them eat eggs.

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
