Truckers hate ELDs and HOS for good reason.

Hours of service are really the problem in my opinion. Truckers were able to fudge paper driving logs for years. ELDs only enforce what was already supposed to be happening but wasn’t, in theory. In practice, ELDs track trucks’ and truckers’ every move down to the last second enabling shippers to ride truckers every minuteContinue reading “Truckers hate ELDs and HOS for good reason.”

Glassy eyed shrieking banshees.

What exactly is going on in the US that the media, Hollywood and politics are filled with glassy eyed, shrieking banshees? You cannot have missed the look that I’m talking about. Round, bugged-out shiny eyes, sallow skin complexion, and so worked up they are shrieking instead of talking. I almost can’t watch anymore. But then,Continue reading “Glassy eyed shrieking banshees.”

Angry People

Are there really angry people everywhere? If I spend anytime watching or reading news or on the internet, it appears everyone is angry.

Am I the ONLY one who sees the irony in white men saying they are tired of being blamed for everything? They are not responsible.

OK, I get it. A lot of you are doing what you are supposed to be doing. You are dealing with years of built up hate and resentment from all sides and you don’t deserve it. But, are you calling out your fellow men who are not? Those men only listen to other men. ToContinue reading “Am I the ONLY one who sees the irony in white men saying they are tired of being blamed for everything? They are not responsible.”

Fact Checking Sites Can Be Both Positive and Negative

Here is a short, over simplification to easily see why we all need to be careful when we are using fact checking sites to form an opinion on anything.

The attack on the US embassyContinue reading “Being happy in our day to day lives instead of fearful is a choice, even in the face of conflict with other nations.”

Democrats Are Going to Lose the Next US Presidential Election

During the 2016 election, I said from day one that Trump was going to win. The media and the Democrats spat out poll after poll about how he did not stand a chance. Once he won, they never have understood why. So, it must be the Russians. OK, in America, I grew up in theContinue reading “Democrats Are Going to Lose the Next US Presidential Election”

There are days when the world can seem overwhelming because we are constantly surrounded by fake everything. People watch mainstream media, online media and social media continuously it seems. Is any of it real, unbiased, or without an agenda? Very little it seems.
