    Are the odds in your favor at casinos owned by white people?

    Didn't know it was going to turn into another "Right vs. left" bash-fest. But with the way most truckers seem to lean, why should I expect anything less? Myself? I'm about as politically lazy and introverted as they come. BACK TO THE ROADS NOW!!!

    Since I'm not a gambler, I wouldn't know, I'm only going by what I've heard over the years

    No politics about it, just stating the facts. Gary Johnson is an Independent/Libertarian, was when he was Gov. of NM as well. The laziness of NMSP and the actions of the NM ports is not a political thing, it's a fact of life, have been since long before I got into this game 24 yrs ago, and if you read up on the current moron in charge, she's roundly hated by both sides of the aisle. Drugs, drugged/drunk drivers don't have a political side to them.

    There is a 15% grade in the Black Hills. There is a sharp curve at the bottom. A good drop off the side. Enough to kill you. It is right outside Old Keystone. (Mount Rushmore)
    we had a winter storm move in. I went up that the next morning. There was 200 feet of guard rail all mangled and sitting on the opposite side of the road.
    Couple months later I came across construction that DOT themselves were doing. I asked the flag man about that on ‘the keystone hill’.
    He burst out laughing. Said it was our own truck and our own fault! Our truck went up there with a delivery. That storm moved in before he headed back down. They failed to get to that road to plow/salt it. That truck got towards the bottom. It just kept going. Wouldn’t turn. Couldn’t stop. Just kept going. The guard rail was the only thing that saved him.

    God, haven't been on that stretch of road in a long time, used to load drums of silica sand for export to China above that hill, first time I saw the 15% sign, I thought it was a joke.
