Talk about cutting through the murk. Self-declared "liberal-leaning libertarian" blogger James Sinclair wrote an interesting post looking at where the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street protests meet. It's obviously simplified, which he admits, but still useful.

"The greatest threat to our economy is neither corporations nor the government. The greatest threat to our economy is both of them working together," Sinclair writes. "There are currently two sizable coalitions of angry citizens that are almost on the same page about that, and they're too busy insulting each other to notice."
