It's Disrespectful

When we think of April 15, we all know what comes to mind: tax day. This is the day we have to settle up with the government. Even the 47% of you that don't pay a dime in federal income taxes know April 15.

But April 15 is should be very important to Americans for another reason. Abraham Lincoln died on this day. It was 145 years ago today that the greatest American of them all passed from this earth.

We are a nation suffering from historical Alzheimer's. We don't know our own history; but we know Lady Gaga.

It's disrespectful to Lincoln's memory to have the day we have to file our tax returns overshadow the day that he died.

Move it to another day.
