Well Bruce, you're an interesting case. On the one hand you have absolutely nothing positive to say about anyone or anything: Democracy is a fraud, voting doesn't work, the members here that don't agree with you are moronic, the entire political system is a fraud, If you or I as truck drivers think we have any influence in the system we are badly mistaken, and even the big carriers are victims of the economic manipulation by the 1% of powerful interests that keep the rest of us 99% sheep people under their thumbs.

Yet here you are with freedom of speech, a great paying job driving a beautiful rig, total freedom to pursue any life you choose, political freedom, religious freedom, and a super cushy life in a thriving economy and a stable political environment. You say that no one and nothing in life is any good, and yet the reality seems to be that everything in your life is utterly fantastic.

Not only that, but you're clearly a hypocrite. You insulted me directly, immediately after asking everyone to stop insulting you, and you asked everyone to stop their personal attacks right before calling their opinions moronic. You're such a hypocrite that sometimes your behavior contradicts your own demands within the same sentence.

If what you claim about the state of your existence doesn't match up in any way with the reality you're actually living, and every request you make of us with regard to our behavior is exactly the opposite of how you're behaving toward us, then it is plain to see that the only reasonable conclusion one could draw is that you're delusional.

Of course being delusional by definition means you won't think you're delusional, so naturally you'll be offended. You would think I might feel bad for pointing out this fact, but since you've gone out of your way to insult everyone at every turn, to be honest I've rather enjoyed it. You made yourself an easy target, and I thank you for that.

Man, why don't we have a mic drop emoji???

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

Ironically I think he gave me a 1 star rating on iTunes. I had nothing but 5 star ratings until right after I posted that last reply to Bruce, then someone gave me a one star rating. But again, if everyone gives it 5 stars and one person gives it one star they kinda sound delusional to me!

It was you, wasn't it Bruce?

Google Play didn't give me the option to rate you. I don't have the mini-player installed, maybe I need that?

I was looking at that last night and I didn't see any options for ratings on Google Play, either, but I figured that was because it's my own podcast so they weren't giving me the option. I'm not sure if they have ratings or not.

Well that was a much better result than I was expecting. I asked for a vote because I figured everybody else liked voting. Just trying to be a team player. And Brett told me I was an interesting case and he enjoyed the discussion because, I guess, I was willing to be the sacrificial lamb. So I'm happy I could stir up a little dust here. Every argument benefits from a devil's advocate. So, Brett, you review every comment. As far as my comments on strictly trucking matters, how am I doing? You know, as a parent I've learned that after a scolding, a little positive reinforcement works wonders.

I asked you a question. Was that you that put the 1 star review on iTunes?

Bruce K.'s Comment

I'll answer your question. No, it wasn't me. What is "I tunes"? But if I ever rated your site, I would give it the highest rating. You see, I don't care if people have different viewpoints than I have, They have a right to their opinions and we can still respect one another.

Brett, I answered your question, but you haven't answered mine. Quid pro quo.
