    I dont think it was staged. Picture was taken directly from one of the protest.

    I know we're not supposed to make fun of others spelling here, but um....whoever that is with the sign should really visit a local bookstores children sections for a work book for his spelling. If it's not in the kids section try...educational.

    Far as the Rick guy...even annoying, idiotic, stupid people want their 15 minutes of fame. If you need proof look to politics, youtube/twitch/etc "stars",social media, etc. Despite the old saying...bad publicity doesn't always equal a good thing. Johnson & Johnson just stopped selling talcum powder in the US and Canada due to the bad publicity they've been getting.



    If your going to use a sign when protesting...for the love of god, use a dictionary, or a spell checker!

    We're not supposed to make fun of another member's spelling or grammar.
    I think making fun of protester's signs is alright.
    Matter of fact, I think it's hilarious. Good post.
    Opendeckin, roshea, not4hire and 4 others Thank this.

    This video pretty much sums up the outcome of the protest. Hint - watch Scalia’s reaction to president’s remarks.

    If you’re in business to make money I would be willing to bet your operating cost is right there to_One of the problems out here is some don’t understand if there making money or just paying bills and wearing out equipment.Are you making money? When you replace equipment are you paying cash from your years in business or just financing the next truck the same way you did when you started are you clearing $100,000 after expenses on 1 truck because there are quite a few companies paying company drivers that now.Just paying bills is not making money.If you run a truck for 6 or 7 years and you haven’t been able to make enough profit to trade that truck and pay cash for the remainder your just wearing out equipment and starting over.So yes I would be willing to bet if your trying to run your own truck you’re operating cost should be 2 or even more.

    I must be doing something wrong then. I was only at 1.21 last year and that’s including my wages of .45 a mile. So to answer your questions, the trailer that I’m buying next month isn’t financed but I’ll have to finance about 35% of my new truck next year because I’m pulling a fair amount out of savings currently for a remodeling project.

    Far as I know their unaltered.

    Let's hope they all had private school education, Public schools get a bad enough rap as it is.


    Sirscrapntruckalot - Thank you to all my fellow Americans who can't spell. The laughs make up for it.

    Dale thompson and KnightMare84 Thank this.
