Would You Call in Sick to Heal America?

March 19, 2008, the fifth anniversary of the war in Iraq, is now officially "Sick Of It Day" — a day for everybody who is sick of the lies, sick of the corruption, sick of the war to make their statement by shutting "it" all down.

Set up by Veterans for Peace, the official website says that calling in sick on March 19 is "a powerful way for every one of us to withdraw our consent from a government that continues an immoral, illegal and SICK war."

So, tell me — are you going to call in sick on March 19th?

What would you even say? "Oh, I'm sorry. I can't come in today b/c I am sick -- sick of the loss and the destruction and despair. Give me a day and I'll be back for the next five years."No. I agree that the war should have been over before it began, but sick days are to be used for sickness, not because you are passionate about an issue on which you can work on during time off.

I won't be calling in sick because the economy is slowing and I don't want to risk being jobless during a difficult time. Besides, I'm sure Bush can tell by his approval ratings that no one is pleased with him.

If you are sick of it, vote democratically this election.

Liberty: I think I hear at least a few who would have said "No--what point could that possibly make?"

If I worked, yes, I would call in sick. Plus, it's my birthday that day. This stupid war was declared on my 22nd birthday when I was on my way over to fight it.

I said other because, correct me if i am being naive but, how is it that calling in sick on this day is going to help us get out of Iraq? In fact how is this actually going to do any good at all? Big and small business owners alike can't just call in sick on this day because they are "sick of it" they have to run a business! Whether or not their business is directly affiliated with us being in Iraq, businesses still have to be run somehow. I dunno but i think this would do more harm than good IMO

Hey there. I tried to give some diverse answer options, but let me know what you would have liked to see. :)

This is all rather juvinile, in my opinion. Call in 'sick'? Oh yes, your employer(s) will not only take you seriously, but the government will be beside itself with the impact of these actions. :OY: I'm with Foxie and cine_lover on this one.
