Before Biden, Uncle Walt said "It’s Your Patriotic Duty To Pay Your Taxes"

Tomorrow is April 15th, the day in which our income taxes need to be filed, unless of course, you are filing an extension.

Tomorrow is also the day that anti-tax protesting, teabaggers, who are really nothing more than Republicans without ideas, will hold rallies all across the country to protest the economic policies of Obama Administration and that of many state and local governments.
Many, if not all of these teabaggers recall with mocking sarcasm, during last years presidential campaign how then Vice-Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, said that it was our patriotic duty as Americans to pay our taxes. The teabaggers point to this, as well as other Obama policy decisions as evidence of Obama’s eagerness to embrace socialism and call him either a socialist, fascist, communist or any combination there of.   
With that in mind, I would like to point out to all of teabaggers who will be enjoying their tea parties tomorrow that before Joe Biden said it was our duty to pay taxes, uncle Walt Disney, at the request of the U.S Treasury in 1943, said it first in the following World War II propaganda film, starring none other than Donald Duck.
The short is actually very interesting because you can draw parallels between today’s United States, fighting a two front war against terrorism in Iraq and Afganistan and that of a World War II  United States, fighting a two front war in Europe and the South Pacific.    
So do your patriotic duty and pay your taxes tomorrow, like good americans should.

Vice President Joe Biden and the Middle Class Task Force

The President created a Middle Class Task Force and asked his right hand man, Vice President Joe Biden, to lead it. The Task Force has one goal — to make sure the recovery doesnt just benefit the wealthy, like past expansions, but improves quality of life for the middle class.

Who Wants Their Piece Of Obamabillia

Honestly, I have just about had enough of the selling of Obama memorabilia. 

From tote bags to champagne flutes to your very own pair of Obama cuff links, you too can own a piece of historic Obamabillia! It is constantly being hawked on every T.V. channel I happen to turn on these days. At what point I ask you does this become tasteless?
Who really needs an $130.00 #44 Obama basketball jersey on it or a cheap $50 cuff link and tie bar gift set anyway? I mean really,who wears cuff links?
But, if you really need a piece of history or think that this stuff will be priceless decades from now the go ahead and shop until you drop:     

The official Presidential Inaugural Store is now open.

In just 16 days, Barack Obama and Joe Biden will be sworn in as President and Vice President of the United States, opening a new chapter in our shared story.

You can own an enduring piece of American history by visiting the official Inaugural Store today.

The Inaugural Store is the only place where you’ll find the official merchandise of the Presidential Inaugural Committee – everything from apparel and artwork to glassware emblazoned with the Inaugural seal.

All items are limited edition and available only while supplies last.

Don’t miss this chance to capture a piece of history.

“It’s presumptuous to feel sorry for another man. But I feel somewhat — I feel somewhat badly for him… I think that President Bush and, unlike Vice President Cheney, is, upon reflection beginning to acknowledge some of the serious, if not mistakes, misjudgments that he made.”

— Vice President-elect Joe Biden, in an interview on Larry King Live, taking another swipe at his predecessor.
