    They took sick days...Most Americans cant afford to use their sick days for protest. We have to use them when we are actually sick or take care of our kids when they get sick. I am sure they are getting fake doctor excuses..hell I did when I was in high school.

    I admire the protesters on both sides for maintaining an orderly event.

    If this is true, than those doctors should be reprimanded and perhaps lose their licenses for fraud.

    What do you believe the teachers should get since they are using the "fake notes?" Doctors should lose their job but the teachers should get away with it?

    Interesting. I have a real job and I can go "boss I want to take vacation tomorrow" and he will go "ok"

    In fact, I have.
    Me too. In the private sector. Teachers aren't normally able to do this, however, due to the nature of teaching. But I support their doing it in this case.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    I asked what should be done...I didn't state YOU would let them get away it. I was simply a question
