    Title should say, “truckers”

    You may not have seen the massive protests all over Australia. They are sick of the prison conditions the sick bureaucrats are imposing now, like "You can only leave home for an hour a day to exercise and cannot stray farther than half a mile or be fined $1000" is just one! The straw that broke the camel's back was requiring all truckers to be vaxed.

    One of them put out a TikTok video telling citizens to stock up on everything and sit tight for a couple of weeks because they were planning to bring down the Government, with the help of veterans. Yeah, baby!

    Wanna bet that will happen here, too? Domino effect all over Europe?

    We may be next boys and girls....

    Well you’d always have people willing to get vaccinated and go out and drive. But there’s already a shortage. When I go to Walmarts about the country many of them are having trouble keeping their Shelves stocked and other places as well. If you go to the biggest ports in the US they’re backed up for weeks. If even 25 to 30% of truckers decided to sit out, they could effectively make things very brutal across this country. I’ve already made up my mind if they mandate a vaccine for truck drivers, well then I won’t be a truck driver anymore. I’m a very creative jack of all trades type of guy and I can make money under the table anytime I want.

    Needs to happen in the USA but we’ve been reduced to a bunch of whiney assed crybabies for the most part.

    Don’t need to “shutdown” here. just have every truck drive about 25mph below the posted speed limit.

    If even 10% sat out then rates would double. If 20% sat out rates would go north of $10/mi even for cross country loads. 30%? The country would shut down. I hope it doesn’t come to this.

    They are doing everything they can to force the vaccine on people. Truckers May end up being the last hope.

    Well I have a basement full of canned veggies and fruit and 2 deep freezers full of elk, venison, pork and beef. Shut them down. Have 7 cases of MRE’s figure I have months worth of food at home.
    #### the government and the vaccine mandate. Sure is funny the push for a vaccine for a virus with over 98% survival rate. Something fishy and they are covering something up. No I am not wearing a tin foil hat.

    Here's what happens when a drug cartel refuses to bribe the Mexican government. I can only imagine what our government will do against those rebelling against the vaccine.
