Mikey,

I don't know if you're talking to me or Kerry, but I'm not really jealous. I have a lot of respect for some of the billionaires even if I think they should be taxed more. Bill Gates, for example, is using most of his money to help out Africa. Elon Musk is pushing society forward. They're doing good things with their money, and I respect that a lot.

Also, I am poor, but I'll probably be a millionaire. I have a lot willed to me. Kerry seems to be pretty intelligent, so I'm guessing he'll have more money than you do too, Mikey. :P

It's bad for corporations to take deductions that result in paying 0% tax. I am sure that you can agree that this would be bad for anyone to ve able to do.

Instead of being upset at corporations for doing that you should be upset with your politicians for writing tax laws that allow for that to happen. Again, if you can legally take certain deductions to pay less why wouldn't you? If you'd rather pay more than you're required I'd be willing to take that extra cash off your hands.

Why do people get so bent out of shape when people disagree with them? It's ridiculous. What if people treated all opinions like they treat political opinions...🤔

"Hey, I like the color red. Maybe you think Green is a better color. My color preference is my own. I'm not trying to force anyone to agree with me. I could explain why I like red so much if you want...that is if you're considerate enough to find out the reasons behind my choice before being rude.

You can also tell me why you like green so much. Even better you can do it without insulting me for my fondness for red. Sure our OPINIONS differ on the topic of color. That doesn't mean you have to insult me by calling me names or questioning my work ethic, or drawing ridiculous conclusions about me simply based on one opinion."

Unfortunately that's the way things are these days. I don't think things will change anytime soon. We can try to do better though.

This has been a friendly, public service announcement (and hopefully a tension breaker) from your friend, RealDiehl.

Well technically it could be either of you i guess. You both share the same seriously flawed ways of thinking. You don't sound like you respect the rich, you sound like the average, run of the mill "democratic" socialist here in America that wants to fundamentally change the country through redistribution and you totally sound jealous.

No, you will never be a millionaire as I am sure you would donate it all to charity to feed the starving masses. If you do become rich, it is not surprising at all that it will be due to someone else's work ethic and hard work. Congratulations, your parents must be so proud. If Kerry has more money than me I am completely ok with it, unlike you I don't feel a need to compare other peoples bank accounts with mine nor do I feel a need to chastise those that have done well for themselves like you do. Thats one of the great things about this country, you work hard and invest wisely you can become rich and do with your money as you wish. For most of us the American dream is to earn our way through life, for others its to inherit it. To each his own. Good luck with your driving career however short it may be, I get the feeling you'll need it.

As a non-native speaker of English, I find it very interesting to observe how certain words aquire new meanings. Just as the word "racism" has almost lost any connection to race, and became a universal synonym of "bad," so did the word "exploitation." It used to describe a natural and common type of relationship between an employer and an employee, but today I hear people use it as a generic bad word for capitalism. Quite silly, I would say.

Kerry,

We seem to think in a similar manner. I expected to be alone around these parts, heh.

Old School,

If you want someone to read over your book for feedback, I'd gladly do it. I'll still buy it if it's reasonably priced. I note that my posts are full of typos compared to yours, but I can at least spot if something doesn't make sense, etc. Normally I post and then edit it to fix the typos, but I can't around here.

There are more of us than people realize. We tend not to speak up as much as our conservative counterparts.

Not upset at the corporations. My ire is directed squarely at Republicans and corporate Democrats who bend over backwards to meet every demand of corporate donors.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices

If I had applied myself equivalent to my potential with regard to intelligence, I probably could have picked any university in the country out of high school. Instead, I didn't really apply myself, graduated with 2.76 GPA, enlisted in the Marine Corps, and eventually went through a period of making some really poor choices. Still recovering from choices made in early 2000s.

I was just trying to upset you since you seemed to be trying to upset me. No one with any morals wants to become wealthy because someone close to them dies. Secretly, I would like to do it trucking, but I do need luck... not because I lack work ethic so much as I totally admit I'm going to struggle navigating the roads in a big rig. I did vote for Bernie Sanders so I guess you summarized me accurately enough. I'm a little bit socialistic and a little bit libertarian on a political compass. I don't share a lot of democratic views. For example, I'm against abortion and gun control. However, I'm totally on board for national healthcare.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
