Thank you for proving my point. It's your site & you can censor it as you wish. But what you call disjointed & spewing hate... I guess I hit a nerve.

No, you didn't hit a nerve and I don't know what your point was, other than to cause problems and point fingers. I couldn't understand half of what you were trying to say. It was a bunch of disjointed rhetoric that seemed to serve no purpose other than to allow you to vent your frustrations and target people who aren't the problem. You're looking to cause grief and create a divide amongst people in a time that calls for unity. You have the right to do that, but you're not going to use this platform to do it.

When the top of the corporate hierarchy and the top of the state hierarchy have a revolving door between them and they freely merge and overlap, it is called FASCISM.

In such a system one cannot blame the police for just fulfilling their primary job. The prime function of the police is to preserve the status quo and thereby protect the power and privilege of the ruling class. They are the guard dogs of the ruling class, so the rulers will never mussel their own guard dogs. Therefore, it is not going to be easy to convince the rulers to institute real reforms because that will mean them giving up their power and privilege. No freedom is ever granted willingly, it has to be 'earned' ... or fought for.

Alright what's going on here.

Time and time again I've seen topics shut down because they are not trucking related and are not benefiting the community. Now we have a thread that has clearly gotten off the topic of trucking and ventured into politics. Instead of taking about trucking we have members grandstanding their personal political views.

I asked that we bring the topic back to trucking and my post gets deleted???

Who's fanning there flames here?

We are all members of this society and this is one of the biggest moments in American history. This affects truck drivers, potential truck drivers, and their friends and families. This is a legitimate topic to discuss on a trucking forum and it's something I personally would like to discuss. I would like to have productive conversations about how truck drivers can handle this situation and what we can do to make our society a better place for everyone.

I was drawn to this thread because I'm going into Minneapolis late tonight with a hazmat load. I thought maybe I may find a resource our an idea from another driver that may prove beneficial since that's what the original pay was acting about. Instead I see our members going back and forth at each other arguing personal political views.

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

Plan B where abouts in Minneapolis? 35w and 94 should be avoided as much as possible. Ton of street closures in St Paul and Minneapolis. The last few days they've shut down nearly all the highways within the 494/694 loop. Be sure to check 511. I'm headed up there tomorrow to Plymouth and Brooklyn Park on NW side but won't arrive until about 6am when things have hopefully calmed. But then again I wont be near where the bad stuff has been happening.

Roseville on NE side.

Was originally hoping maybe the placards would scare off someone who wanted to crack my trailer open lol.

But that ended up not a concern as the shipper took so rediculiously long. Drove 7 hours straight through from shipper and didn't arrive until 06:15. If anyone had been out last night, they had long gone home.

Had zero issues coming into town.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

We should meet up, but I have a DOT physical today rofl-2.gif

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.
