(NaturalNews) If you're an eighth grader and you show up to school with a fake doctor's note excusing your suspicious absence the day before, you would probably face detention or some other punishment, including a possible investigation for truancy. But if you're a teacher and you call in "sick" with a fake doctor's note handed to you at a protest in Madison, Wisconsin, then that's apparently okay... because that's what countless public school teachers have been doing the past week.

Masterminding the effort are rogue medical doctors committing medical fraud by carrying out obviously contrived conversations with protestors then writing them doctors' notes to excuse them from work for such things as "fatigue" or "emotional stress."

What we have, then, is a tag team of fraud: The teachers who have abandoned their public duties and abandoned their students by calling in "sick," and the medical doctors who are promoting the whole charade by pretending to diagnose these teachers with some sort of ailment that gets them off the hook.

This sends a really powerful message back home to all the students in the Madison public school system: "Do as we say, not as we do."

Revoke the medical licenses of these fraudulent doctors

It's really just a bunch of adults acting like children, of course. Madison public system schoolteachers are already among the best paid in the country, taking home an average of $56,000 a year in salary, plus other benefits that bring the total to over $100,000 in compensation (http://maciverinstitute.com/2010/03/average-...).

That's a pretty lucrative deal for schoolteachers. You'd think that for a six-figure compensation, they might have some loyalty to actually showing up at work and teaching the schoolchildren. There's a lesson in social studies for ya.

For the doctors, there should obviously be an investigation and an effort to strip their medical licenses for practicing what can only be called "quack medicine." Can you imagine the outcry if a bunch of herbalists or alternative medicine practitioners showed up and started writing excuse notes for these protestors? That would be rightly called "quackery." But somehow it seems to be okay when medical doctors engage in that same quackery.

One YouTube video features an especially arrogant medical doctor claiming he is engaging in "private conversations" with patients and that his conversations are protected by state law (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pDy3cvzDHs). Of course, he fails to mention he is engaging in these conversations in a public place, in the context of what is essentially a political protest, absent any context of a hospital, clinic or emergency room.

Another video shows a medical doctor providing an excuse note with the diagnosis of "Sick of the whole thing." (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q65X9xPjJQk)

A third video shows Madison doctors handing out a fake excuse note to none other than Andrew Breitbart (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQRcNBWTOr8).

It is doctors like these, with their flimsy and fraudulent diagnoses, who are probably the same ones engaged in widespread Medicare and Medicaid fraud. For all we know, these medical consultations taking place at Madison might actually be billed to Wisconsin state Medicaid for reimbursement!

What's clear from this fiasco is that both teachers and doctors in Madison will commit fraud when it serves their purposes.

Do teachers have a legitimate gripe?

This is all separate from the question of whether their grievance has legitimate standing. The political issue at hand is the attempt by the Wisconsin legislature to eliminate specific collective bargaining rights from unionized state workers. Clearly, this is a highly contentious issue, but Wisconsin, like dozens of other U.S. states, is facing a financial catastrophe if it cannot find ways to reduce the annual growth of salaries and benefits to state workers. If these efforts fail, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has already explained the state would be forced to fire 10,000 or more state workers.

The issue isn't whether Wisconsin wants to pay more money to state workers, but the far harsher reality of whether Wisconsin has any money left to pay state workers. This is a question that will be increasingly facing lawmakers in California, Texas, Illinois and many other states that are on the brink of financial disaster.

That's why you can expect more rallies, more protests and perhaps even economic riots to begin breaking out across the USA over the next few years. People get angry when their salaries or benefits are cut, or when they are threatened with a loss of bargaining rights. Yet if there's one thing that unions have never quite grasped, it's economic reality. You can't pay out what you don't have. And unlike the federal government with its private Fed counterfeit money presses, the states can't print their own counterfeit money to pay people off.

Will the protests turn violent?

What we're looking at here, folks, is a collision between state workers and economic reality. That collision is going to get increasingly nasty -- and perhaps even violent -- in the coming months and years. If things continue to heat up, all the fraudulent medical doctors currently handing out notes at these protests will soon find themselves doing actual medical work by treating riot wounds in a medical triage scenario.

Wisconsin has already invoked the National Guard to track down and retrieve the missing Democratic lawmakers who fled the state to avoid holding a vote. It doesn't take much of an imagination to see where this whole thing could escalate into violence at some point.

Now, for the bigger question: Do government workers deserve more money? Of course they do. Everybody does. We should all live in a world where money rains down from Heaven and nobody has to work at all. Curiously, that imaginary realm does not exist. And it's a good thing, too, because if it did, nothing would ever get done because nobody would have any incentive to work at all. You think schoolteachers actually enjoy their jobs? If so, you don't know enough schoolteachers.

We live in a world with limited resources, and cities, states and entire nations are now finding themselves with their financial backs against the wall, forced to make extremely unpopular decisions to prevents their states from going bankrupt.

It is those decisions that are going to lead to sheer desperation among some ex-government workers. The phrase "going postal" comes to mind as one possible response we may have to deal with as these payroll cuts go even deeper.

When will the medical doctors call in sick?

I find it especially fascinating that medical doctors are actually encouraging these protests by committing medical fraud, right in broad daylight (and on video!), seemingly without any concern that their actions violate not only their Hippocratic Oath but quite possibly state law, too.

What we really need to see is all the doctors going on strike and refusing to show up for work. Because that's where we would actually see a decrease in mortality due to pharmaceuticals, chemotherapy and dangerous surgical procedures.

After all, we need schoolteachers in society, but we don't really need most conventional doctors (except the ones in the emergency rooms). And all these striking doctors can spend their days writing each other fraudulent excuse notes to make sure they still get "sick pay" from their employers.

And, truth be told, if Wisconsin really wants to save money, it should be ending its financial support of Big Pharma and the whole "sick care" industry. That would save the state so much money that it could readily afford to preserve the collective bargaining rights of schoolteachers, firemen and police officers.
