    All the Chicagoland 1099 crapola would be a better target.

    What I see roaming the roads around here from what I assume are 1099 companies it would be pretty much the same difference.

    Never happen. This Gonzalez fella better watch how he starts his car. I believe he's introduced a bunch of anti-trucking bills that never went anywhere.

    I think they do. US Steel in Gary is still a major polluter, but that's okay. Got to get those pesky pre-emission trucks however.
     
    Sons Hero Thanks this.

    Gray is not part of the commie state of Illinois maybe the Crapcago land might have a very sight smoke issue but 95% of the state doesn’t
