    Primary reason BOUNDARIES must be NECESSARY. STAY IN THE BUNK ... until it's your time to drive - limit problems.

    Teams done right is very powerful.

    But when you survey the situation coast to coast it's seriously screwed up.

    THAT Im worried about.

    They think they have riches with 1000 american dollars when exchanged to India's currency back home which results in mountains of their money system.

    I usually send some funds in American Dollars to Israel and when they recieve it and convert over to Shekel its almost a 4 to 1 USD. Meaning if a pack of smokes cost 7.00 US here it's a carton over there for just about that if not a little more American USD in Shekel.

    This is not a political post, its strictly economic minded about money. The more people come here to America (Immigration is what we are...) the easier for trucking companies to hand them .30 a mile in USD and they faint in such escatsy and rapture at such riches to them. Not aware that is what we paid top hands 45 years ago.

    very sad but true for American citizens because you cannot live off of .30 cents a mile here. The need for drastic economic (tax based) consequences for corporations who hires in this manner.
