Two protests going on today for tax day.
First, the famous tea baggers, told by their corporate sponsors to protest a tax increase on the wealthy (as well as jobs creation), will be having tea parties all over the country. We cannot be free as long as there is taxation with representation! They've garnered quite a bit of attention for their work and the mainstream political media does love the idea of people rising up against Keynesian economics to support wealthy people who might be asked to shoulder a bit more of the burden to get us out of this crisis. Video telling you to go there after the jump.
Second, and more interestingly but with, sadly, less attention, HRC, Join the Impact, and Marriage Equality USA are having demonstrations all over the country at post offices to protest unfair tax structures that benefit married couples over unmarried couples and same-sex couples, married or otherwise.
If you're participating in these protests, or just want to share a tax-day story, the floor is yours.
