National Sick Day 2008
By: Edward L. Daley
Are you sick and tired of being ignored by your government? Are you angry about having to pay outrageous gasoline and food prices while your elected representatives consider legislation which, if enacted, will only make matters worse? Do you believe that the environmentalist lobby in Washington DC has hijacked American energy policy? Well here’s an idea that just might interest you.
LET’S TAKE A DAY OFF FROM THE ECONOMY
IN PROTEST OF OUR DO-NOTHING GOVERNMENT!
The following is a copy of a letter of intent to be emailed to every member of Congress on the 13th of July, 2008.
NATIONAL SICK DAY 2008
To: U.S. Congress
In protest of the federal government of the United States of America, which has failed utterly in its responsibility to address the energy crisis currently facing our nation, we the undersigned hereby resolve that we will not participate in productive work of any kind, nor will we engage in any monetary transactions for a 24 hour period beginning at 6 a.m. EST on the 14th day of July, 2008.
Furthermore, we will use this time to repeatedly contact the federal Congress and the office of the President for the sole purpose of demanding that our elected officials immediately draft a bill – to be adopted into law no later than the 1st day of September, 2008 – which includes the following provision:
Any and all federal restrictions previously imposed upon any American energy company, which impedes its ability to engage in the exploration, drilling, and refining of domestic oil, are to be suspended immediately, and are to remain suspended until the year 2018
