Occupy & Tea Party Join Forces to Protest NDAA

This could be a big deal. While progressives have major problems with much of the teaparty’s values, I’ve always felt that if the left and the teaparty could get together on anything, it could prove incredibly powerful. So, this is not the left. It is the Occupy movement, a far less ideological movement, but one with amazing potency and promise. I hope we see a lot more of this, and that this even is wildly successful.
