Some members of the Occupy Richmond and local Virginia Tea Party movements got together to discuss common ground. The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

1. This has the potential of being the most explosive event...
in American politics in... well, as long as I've been alive, and I'm 52. Seriously.

2. good one; however,

IMO, the biggest difference between OWS and the tea boogers is that OWS will inconvenience themselves to get their point across. Camping out rough on the street for weeks as a means to express your disgust is way more effective than holding up misspelled signs for a day and then going back to the hotel room after the news cameras have gone home.

one thing that I noticed in the report: consequence is spelled with a C not an S--might want to break that down to your graphics person...

4. If Tea Partiers can be channeled into the right direction
They might just bite the Koch hand that is suckering them out of their money.

5. The first thing the Tea Party needs to do is to stop referring to SS as "welfare."
I had a heated discussion a few months ago with a TeaBagger who swore up and down that Social Security was "welfare." No amount of explaining that SS is an insurance program could sway him.

6. If they hear it on their retarded radio stations
They believe it. Morons are easily programmed, which is sad for democracy.
