Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

What If They Gave A Revolution And Nobody Came?
It appears that the planned overthrow of the Government and the Constitution of the United States and the creation of a

"Political Cooperative (that) will put a new, temporary government in place that is comprised of people from Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and all the organizations---"

Originally scheduled for March 15, has been moved to today.

Captain's Quarters in Were You At The Coup? informs us that their rhetoric has toned down and they are not as they were previously calling for

"all Member Nations of the U.N.; All Representatives and Justices in the World Court and International Criminal Courts; All Human Rights Advocates; All Soldiers and CIA agents and government officials who have been blackmailed or are in fear of the dictators to join us in ending this reign of corporate terror in our government"

Michelle Malkin will be on hand to document the lunacy. She promises to let you know

if the revolution breaks out.

In other News it seems that yesterday's call for massive demonstrations on the 3rd anniversary of the Iraq War ended with whimpers, rather than bangs.

From Big Lizards in Anti-American Protests "Fizzle" On War Anniversary

"In Sydney Australia, back in 2003, 250,000 protesters rallied against the war. Yesterday, a whopping 500 people showed up. Australia has 20 million people, so this is a turnout of 0.0025% of the population.

Authorities shut down streets in the heart of London's shopping and theater district for the demonstration, which organizers had predicted would attract up to 100,000 people, but police estimated the crowd was about 15,000 people....

In Tokyo, about 2,000 people rallied in a downtown park, carrying signs saying "Stop the Occupation" as they listened to a series of anti-war speeches.

The second-largest protest was in Turkey. Some 5,000 protesters showed up. Considering it is a Moslem country, 5,000 may seem rather small and insignificant... but still, it represents a staggering 0.007% of the Turkish population.

Not to be left out, the mighty Swedes mobilized 1,000 protesters to surround the American embassy. That's 0.01%... a small country, but a doughty batch of protesters!"

The French it seems were busy protesting more important things.

Meanwhile, back at le chateau, a few students are up in arms in France (or at least up in les cocktails Molotov). Hat tip Power Line:

The protests, which drew 500,000 people in some 160 cities across the country, were the biggest show yet of escalating anger that is testing the strength of the conservative government before elections next year.
Wow, half a million people. This was by far the biggest protest demonstration of them all, drawing 0.82% of the French population -- more than 40 times the London demonstration in terms of population -- more than 33 times the size in actual numbers.

Alas, we can't really count it -- because they're not protesting the Iraq war
. Their boeuf is entirely domestic: the "conservative" government in France wants to change the law to allow employers to fire incompetent employees within first two years, which is currently illegal. (Evidently, the potential of being incompetent is a besetting fear among French youths. Possibly because they spend all their time at l'Universite rioting instead of studying.)

There is extensive coverage of this last issue at
No Pasarn! in among others Life is static. Nothing should ever change. Feed me. and A million marching, but for whom?

They trashed McDonald's????????????????

It is time to call in the Marines!!!!!!!!!
