Health Patriot




How do you fight and prevent a massive outbreak of the flu? This is one of the many questions our President is asking. With a single word our man can answer any great dilemma. What is that word? Well to ask that you must be a yankee, but that's OK I forgive you. The word my friend is "Strategery".

Many people around my office are getting sick and I feel a little cough coming on. What should I do? I just follow this brilliant "Strategery" and everything will be okay.

"America has this tough-it-out strategy when you get sick," White House spokesman Trent Duffy said. "You aren't helping yourself or the country going to work when you get ill. You are potentially threatening a greater health issue if you send children to school when they are sick."

So many people want to blame Bush for Iraq, the economy, or a stumped toe. I want to thank you Mr. President, for looking after my health. I feel a cough coming on and it's my patriotic duty to take off work!

our disaster measures are clearly not up to date. just look at the whole fiasco that Katrina wreaked. I know it's not Bush's fault that there are natural disasters, but it is his fault that there are no real contingency plans or measures that will help an affected region get back on its feet quicker.

I am sick as fuck today but I had to drag my happy ass to work becasue those bastard Republicans wont give me free health care. Sure if your a rich white male with a job you can take a day off and go to the doctor.

It would be very selfish of one to stay at work sick - and infect the rest of the workforce.

oh yeah, and when I call in and get written up because my employer only gives me 3 sick days a year (a hospital, no less), I'm sure they'll let me off when I tell them that shrub said to call in.
