Ah, Yes, A 'Day Of Rage'

You know that "Day of Rage" revolution (see my introduction to it here) that was supposed to begin yesterday on Wall Street and spread across the land, bringing with it sweeping changes in the way ... we ... well, we're not sure what changes will derive from it because the really brilliant revolutionaries who dreamt it up never sat down to hammer out their reasons for their existence.

Kinda reminds you of a president going to war against Libya but without any discernible reason for doing so.

Shoot, let's bomb 'em anyway.

What exactly are we to make of such schemes?

Anyway, yesterday was the first "Day of Rage."

Turns out there was more rage at the Jets-Jaguars game not far away.

See "Day of FAIL: Nationwide anti-capitalist revolution flops."

The organizers of this groundswell of a revolution expected 20,000 badasses to take to the streets.  Reality?  5% of that.  At most.

And those who showed up?

Some demanded more government.  Others demanded no government.  From commies to anarchists, and everything in between.

The weather was good, though.  A fun time had by all.
