Here is a perfect example of the mentality of the american truck driver. Be sure to watch the video below. Not even smart enough to understand you dont piss into the wind ever let alone if your in a contest for pissing distance. He absolutely loses his mind because I dont drive “atleast” 70mph. We where in Arkansas where the speed is 45mph minimum and the limit is 70mph. Im in the right lane doing 56mph just easing along as I have all the time I need to get there. With nobody in the left lane in his way he about runs into me doing 75+mph then starts cussing about me being on my brakes. I hadnt had to touch my brakes in 60 or 80 miles which just tells me he was probably on his phone. Then as he gets farther away he gets more and more ignorant eventually telling me he would kick my ass if I would tell him where I am. Really? Scumbag knows exactly where I am. Knowing where I am is what started the whole thing. Now the reality of the situation is sad because he is probably making. 15 cents a mile due to his own stupidity. Just one reason being Im going 56mph and getting 8.4mpg while he is stressed out doing 75+mph getting probably 7.0mpg if he is lucky. That alone is about $10,000.00 more per year in my pocket, but Im stupid. Lmmfao. He is everything that is and always has been wrong with this industry, and why I cant wait now to leave it.
The reality I see as an educated free citizen that is not associated or aligned with either side. I think the Republican party is way closer to my personal beliefs, but I am no Republican. I am a part of the minority party. Im an American. I am closest to the beliefs of the Libertarians. I believe in peoples rights to be, do, and think whatever they want. I believe that I am who should provide for me and my family. That the government is an intrusive, restrictive, out of control dictatorship and the sheeple of this country are to blame. I also believe it’s going to get rapidly worse. Much, much worse. This next election no matter the outcome will put the way things are going in overdrive and the time to be ready for that will be gone. You have 561 days, and as you can see the clock is ticking. Dont say nobody warned you. Sounds Xtreme I know. I’m not claiming the end of the world. There are much less and worse things that are way more likely.
Unfortunately a hand full of changes or events alone wont be noticed in this country. However one day soon the people will look up and wonder how. How did this happen so fast? Ever heard of the story about the frog in the pot? Turn the temperature up slowly and he dont jump out. Then one day “All of a sudden” he’s cooked through and through.
