So, Wisconsin teachers lie to get out of work so they can attend their Obama-organized protest in the capitol. They fraudulently collect sick pay off the taxpayers in that state. And they get lying doctors to sign excuses for them.
I saw these people myself today. At first I thought it was some sort of comic street theater, but it was, apparently, real doctors, defending what they were doing. I’ll have my video interview up soon. I asked if it was dishonest or unethical, and the answer was that everyone has symptoms, perhaps a migraine, diarrhea, or insomnia. I suggested “activitis.”
Any teacher or other public employee who engaged in this illegal and fraudulent behavior should be terminated on ethical grounds. Any doctor who wrote notes to help facilitate the fraud should be brought before the licensing board for examination of their ethics.
Do you want people like these teaching your kids? Do you want doctors like these treating you?
Do you want cowardly, anti-democratic politicians representing you? Like the Democrats in Wisconsin who shirked their duties to avoid a completely legal vote?
I spent the last week with a lot of union workers – craft unions. I heard not one word of support for what is going on in Madison. Not one. But I did hear several complaints about the coddled teachers from guys who had spent only five months last year employed.
I think they overreached on this one. And I think Obama backed the wrong horse – again.
