Everything I need to know I get from the comics, part 4,791

(From the webcomic Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weiner.)

This strikes me as indisputable.

Anyone care to dispute?

Meanwhile, in Memphis, Tea Partiers invited a couple of the local Occupy protesters to a meeting to look for common ground. Writing for the AP, in a post appearing today on Yahoo! News, Adrienne Sainz reports:
By the end, the Occupy Memphis members and their audience — made up mostly of whites over 40 years old — reached common ground on some issues, such as their perception that the government and politicians no longer listen to and serve the people they represent.

They also found some agreement in their stances against taxpayer-sponsored government bailouts and "crony capitalism," the idea that close ties between lobbyists, businesses, and other self-serving interests can influence government officials and the exercise of capitalism.
(snark)Some of the Occupy kids also got their Moms and Dads to increase their allowances.(/snark)

And if the Tea Partiers and the Occupiers ever get together on their disdain for banks too big to fail, we may yet have some reform in this country. Or at least a lot of really nervous politicians....
