  1. Those are much worse in Europe too... <_<
  2. IDK how many people outside of the transportation industry know about this. I certainly didn't know it until I became a truck driver. Aside from dealing with reckless four-wheelers and outlaw truckers, I learned about the other factors that can have an impact on our economy. Also, if you think about it, the rise in the price of oil affects the global economy in each respective country. If anyone thinks we have it bad over here, try Europe. Granted, the article is a bit dated, but I think it's still relevant.
  3. +1 If you think that's bad, try the price of diesel fuel. That's what should have everyone concerned. Why? Because trucks and trains need it to ship the goods that we buy, right down to our groceries. And then the cost gets passed down to us. So, whenever I hear the next report on the Inflation Index, I'm going to take it with a grain of salt.
  4. :angry: This is what a weak dollar does to us.
  5. NOTICE: These are just observations. I remember back in the 90's when Clinton decided to tap the strategic oil reserves to ease rising gas prices back then. Republicans balked at it. Then, when gas prices were on the rise again in the last decade, Bush 43 tapped into the same reserves. They're skyrocketing now, and Obama hasn't done a thing about it. Thoughts, anyone?
  6. I heard about these guys on CNN, and now I can't get this song out of my head. Kudos to CNN for bringing up this feature story! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsyFq-rd_Zk
  7. With all those horrible attributes, I bet you can't wait for hockey season to start.
  8. I'm not watching it, but I agree with you. The mindless melodrama - even in sports - is worse than fingernails on a chalkboard (that is, if you can find a chalkboard in classrooms anymore). IOW, it's their way of saying, "We really have nothing really important to say, but we have to say something to fill air time." Maybe they should have put on either Jackie Evancho or Prince Poppycock to fill that dead air.
  9. You're not the only one who feels that way. For once, we actually agree on something. B-)
  10. This will probably shock some of you. Glenn Beck has to be one of the most dangerous men in America right now. Some of the things he said this past weekend at the Mall in DC sent a chill down my spine.
  11. With all due respect, are you one of those who calls evil good and good evil?
  12. I bet the guys who are professional movers and who have to box up and haul an entire truck full of household goods regardless of what the weather is outside probably got a chuckle out of it too.
  13. I know this is old, but whatever happened to the idea of States Rights? Arizona did the right thing when Governor Brewer signed SB 1070 into law back in April of this year, and now the elitists on the Left want to pillory and crucify honorable men like Sheriff Joe Arpaio. What criminal nonsense! :wallbash:
  14. I started listening to Corsten's Countdown on podcast. I can't get this tune out of my head: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkQAjxzeRkE ...or this one courtesy of Armin van Buuren's A State of Trance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNTJfz4PFG0
  15. Not exactly what I had in mind. Some house is good, while others can be an acquired taste. I heard this the other day and I...got...hooked!!! Excellent trance tune! (I commented as ChristianTranceGuy). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMOZ1c0jrl0
  16. Do we have anyone here besides me who digs electronica/house/trance? Here's a goodie by Georg Bissen with Victor Dinaire. Makes for great driving music too! :thumbsup: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMJgh6diV7I
  17. very nice, chz! I didn't know you were a country girl. :thumbsup:
  18. A couple of goodies have been playing in my head. I dedicate the first one to a behemoth of a trucking company based in Wisconsin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atBg9zLI2bA The second one is for all you anglers out there: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwRrKaq0IyY
  19. :death: Let's hope he doesn't pour salt in our wounds - for obvious reasons.
  20. No more original episodes of Law & Order. Then again, it wasn't the same after Jerry Orbach left (and subsequently passed away). :(
  21. Ok, I admit it. The songs in my head change like the weather. Has anyone ever heard of metal coming out of Iraq? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXxt3SiGvTg
  22. I wonder how many of those middle aged guys are listening to stuff like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8Jjy3Zy7kk Or this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIMW0aHN0ks
  23. Further confirmation that this is NOT a "G" Rated board.
