Thrilling Two-Fisted Tales of Commuters Observed:

I've tried twice to write a post about youths in Georgetown on the street selling t-shirts that read "STOP BITCHING START A REVOLUTION." Shirts which I then see people wearing on the Metro (on Saturdays mostly, natch.) But every time I start writing about it I just get angry and start seeing red and then I black out. Luckily, I'm wearing my purple pants.

So, in brief: any shirt telling people to 'start a revolution' is only geared towards people who would rather buy a shirt than start any revolution, and wearing such a shirt is only going to advertise that fact about yourself.

(Bonus research: Pic of shirt here. More on the hippies that make and sell them to annoying rich kids here. This is all making me reconsider a career in bilking rich people out of money, whether through art or religion or whatever.)
