    Who's got 1 year experience? You reading that stupid little box to the left that I never filled out? That is there by default I'd assume?? If you want the truth, THIS past year, now 2, I have no experience with brokers because every dime I've earned "behind the wheel" I, MYSELF get up, and, GO-GET IT! GO-GET IT! Because I have a hustle in me most don't. I get my own contracts, connects, dimes and dollars. Before then, lol, buddy, you have no idea....

    I have dealt with brokers. Some are good and some are bad.

    There should be laws against trucking companies who lie about everything. Where's does accountability come into the picture?

    Last year I averaged $2.84/mile for all miles. Don't know why it is a secret. Now telling you what I do and how I do it is another story...

    I made a whopping $-311.00 for my weekly settlement. When I asked them if they would like to go home to their spouse and say, I didn't make nothing this week. You know, they didn't have a reply to that. Of course not, you know why, because they know I am right. They know their spouse wouldn't like that at all. Neither do I, if Obozo the clown in Washington can get release that American soldier after left his unit before he was captured, in exchange to free 5 members of the Taliban, he can enact a law on this. It's not right all of the hard work we do out here on the road. The sacrifices we make to be away from our families. To provide a living for them, and a driver cannot even do that, because of some stupid lease agreement that a friend of mine talk me into coming over here was a serious mistake by all means. I am sorry to whomever has to read this, I don't ask to be rich, I just want to be able to provide for my family, and do something with them after I pay my bills.

    Unfortunately the time to investigate the deal that you got into of your own free will was before you did it. There are thousands of postings on forums telling you to stay away from lease purchase deals. The first step toward change is accepting responsibility for yourself and your choices and stop blaming someone else. Now you have to live with the consequences of your choices or make a new choice.

    One thing I will do, and that is stop receiving emails from this website from flooding my email account. Have a safe one out there.
