The Comedy Central pundits' assembly was touted as a gathering of people who've been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs or are looking for work, aka the Busy Majority.
"If we had to sum up the political view of our participants in a single sentence, we couldn't," wrote Stewart on his website announcement of the rally. "That's sort of the point."
Many of the attendees, however, had no problem displaying their thoughts, political and otherwise, in handmade signs.
The one below, photographed by Kim Baker, was the only tax-related placard I've seen. It's #13 in Buzzfeed.com's collection of the 100 best signs at the rally.
And before you ask, I'm presuming (rather than assuming, since we all know what that could lead to), the TLA's mentioned in the poster are an acknowledgement of government-speak for various tax-supported programs, aka three-letter acronyms.
