Posted on 09/19/2013 12:35:37 PM PDT by maddog55
The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!
We won't be rolling 11-13!!! (55k+ likes!!

Need to get the 2 Million Bikers involved as well.
There’s also: 1 Million Truckers Against Obama
I mentioned this to a friend the other day who is involved in trucking. He looked at me as though I was nuts. What Strike?
I’m wagering this will draw as many as the Million Muslim March. (IOW a couple hundred).
They better look out or the Sons of Barack and OFA will have the night of a thousand Reginald Denny’s.
You might get a few owner operators with excess money but the vast majority of truckers are driving someone else’s truck and don’t see prison as a viable plan.
Not to mention, harvest season is approaching. You expect a trucker to take time off for this? Good luck.
Truckers don’t usually have the luxury of taking part in strikes. Doesn’t feed the family very well. Especially when you don’t OWN the truck. I have a friend who drove and loved it but didn’t make a whole lot.
The company my uncle works for would shut the truck down by satellite if he got more than 20 miles out of route with no sign of stopping.
Less than 10% of truckers are owner operators.
So immediately 90% aren’t going to hijack their employer’s rig to go to DC.
Of the o-o’s, most are struggling to make ends meet financially. Days of revenue lost and $4/gal fuel mitigate against trips to DC.
We have a road trip planned for that weekend. This should be interesting.
Not to mention the very limited access trucks have to DC streets.
(Of course the farmers have time off in the winter)
How ‘bout “we don’t roll at all until the Keystone Pipeline is approved”?
Yep! Know what you are sayin’. Mrs. RQSR has been truckin’ CSR for a major truckload hauler for 28 years full time, and was with them seven years part time before that. 35 years knowing what the heartbeat of truckin’ sounds like.
Well I hope they get their message across loud and clear.
It does bring to mind a night at a Holiday Inn in Dubuque IA where I was having a good friendly debate with a liberal.
Sitting next to us were a group of union truckers using the “F” word at least once per sentence and raging on GWB because all he cared about was oil.
I did not even have to say a thing to my liberal friend as he just shook his head and said, these guys make it hard to argue my side.
I said, it sure makes me wonder what all their trucks run on if they hate oil so much.
looks like bs
corporate trucker friends of mine have heard nothing about this. besides, the schedules they are on would not allow them to get out of the process, especially since they’re driving company trucks
Get the becks and Hannity’s on this. This could be great. My son just hung it up after 28 years and 3,000,000 miles. DOT, govt regulations and fuel prices finally pushed him over the edge!
I’ll take a trucker over a congress critter any day.
The trucker does real work...and provides real value.
