Taxes not your cup of TEA?
Ouch. It’s April 15 again (didn’t we just have one of these days last year?). That can only mean one thing: Uncle Sam is outside your local post office right now, gathering envelopes from his loyal nephews & nieces. Yes it’s Tax Day, and the clock is ticking to pay the piper (without penalty or threat of a career making license plates).
Whether you’re Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Pro-Union, Anti-War, a credit card holder, able to see lightning and hear thunder or whatever, we all agree that the roads need to be paved and programs need to be funded. However, which programs get funded and how much we each have to pay in taxes is certainly up to debate. And debate we do. Especially in designs on CafePress.
While there are many designs by supporters of today’s current tax structure, here at CafePress we’re seeing a huge swing in “alternative” thinking – including a surge in designs for the TEA Party. In case you don’t know, the TEA (for Taxed Enough Already) Party is a grass roots movement to let the folks in Washington D.C. (and locally) hear their belief that we can’t tax our way out of today’s economic situation.
CafePress shops like Right Wing Stuff are a case in point of those who are filling the need for TEA Party shirts, bumper stickers and other merchandise. But whether you agree or disagree with what’s being said by today’s TEA Party supporters, the point is to get out there and be heard.
So celebrate Tax Day by sporting your opinion on taxes. If I’m not mistaken, you can even save 15% on tax-themed gear today (orders of $50 or more – use coupon code: TAX15).
