It's not too hard to back in a local delivery box van.<quoted text> Are YOU a rocket scientist??
Can you navigate urban roads in a 18 wheeler & not wipe out cars or signs? How about backing up to a dock 60 feet behind you using only mirrors? Are you certified to haul hazardous cargo or know what to do with it in an accident?
Can you teach a monkey to read or talk or use a charge card to fuel the rigs with Diesel...NOT gasoline?
I would ask you what your occupation is but your trust level isn't looking good.

No it's called climate change and the fact that the climate scientists accurately predicted extreme cold temps in no way is a victory for you. Also, you skipped over the 30,000 record high temps we had in one year. Let's subtract 50 cold days from 30,000 record high temps. Yep, it's global warming...son. Now go put out that cigarette because us hardworking Americans are tired of paying higher medical bills due to spineless, weak willed free loading addicts like yourself. Cigarettes need to be $20 a pack so we can lower this deficit you keep crying about. I'm sure you have no problem with our country lowering the deficit by charging weak willed addicts more for their unnecessary fix...right?

driving a vehicle is not rocket science. It is above way to many peoples ability though. The ability to read a fuel pump is also not rocket science. You are exactly correct Obama's staff filled the limo with gas ruining the engine. The filler door that says diesel only was written in English, and evidently over their head.
backing up using only mirrors is something every boat owner and camper owner does
time they hitch up.
I can thread a needle with a trailer using only side mirrors, and do it with every launch and then parking trailers between others with just inches between them.
You should try pulling a boat in Cincinnati rush hour traffic to Lake Cumberland with 17,000 pounds behind you on the hills. When nutjobs cut you off with 200 gallons of gasoline in the tank, the boat is a rolling bomb awaiting a teenage girl texting.
A semi tractor weighs triple a diesel pickup. My boat on the trailer is 13 feet from ground to top of radar arch. Forgetting to put antennas down is very expensive, and bridges collect them without a warning. I am 4 inches from a state mandated escort for wide load. Do you suppose the manufacturer did that by accident?
West Marine loves exercised stupidly explained above. I am a repeat offender.
a semi hitched to a 53 foot trailer is 2 feet longer than my truck hitched to the boat. I measured when parking next to them a fueling stations.
try backing up on a boat ramp where the trailer disappears because it is lower than tow vehicle, and gravity is pulling you towards water. The ramp has inches of room on the sides remaining, and a mistake is epic.
Yes I always leave windows open and ready to bail out if tragedy occurs. Brainless would be trusting the transmission not to break, or gravity to be on strike.
My occupation is one that 99% of people can't do. It also only pays when success is achieved.
Would you work knowing you only get paid if you accomplish something, and you are rejected more than accepted as a normal outcome?
above really does not matter because working in a cube farm is not me and possibly what you excel at.
we all are different.......how is that for rocket science?

"Big eared zebra"- XXXrayted the dishonorable addict racist describing the elected president of the United States of America. Also a self proclaimed truck driving climate science expert in his own mind. Now if we can teach the guys with genius IQs and multiple degrees in the science of global weather patterns to smoke and drive trucks...
#27461 Apr 2, 2014
you skipped over data required to form a detailed opinion.
example....in 1805 what was the temperature in Canton on April 2nd?
Will you pay my bills for me Mr. Moneybags?
you are an addict of stupidity. What tax does the government attach to your stupidity because your brain child has yet made a correct decision and real taxpayers are forced to bail out your epic failures?
#27462 Apr 2, 2014
It doesn't matter what or how much you charge tax on anything. The way the libs waste our money, there isn't enough money in the world to lower the debt now. You know, things like $700,000 for a theater show on global warming?
Typical lib though, attack cigarette smokers and legalize pot so our children have easier access to it. A typical lib that doesn't understand economics 101 which states taking money out of society (be it sin taxes, taxes on the wealthy, gasoline taxes) reduces circulation of currency because of the reduction of residual income. But the reason our economy sucks is because of Bush and the Republicans according to libs. It can't be anything the Democrats dream up.
#27463 Apr 2, 2014
still adding to your failure list I see.
you can't spin away from your stupidity....you were born with it chump.
now get back to scrubbing toilets.

Try driving a vehicle that weighs 75,000 pounds and the same thing happens.
There are easy parts of driving and difficult parts. Backing up in daylight is not that bad nor are making tight turns onto side streets which we do from time to time. The challenging part is when you can't see your trailer backing into inside docks. The sun certainly is no help and neither are the customers that have poor or no lighting in the building.
Plus you should try driving that boat around town in snowstorms or icy conditions. That's a whole different driving. I see these truckers from the south driving with their mouth wide open and their head actually over their steering wheel as if they are going to see any better. Others think that it's like driving in the rain until they end up turning the truck over into middle of the highway. It happens every snowstorm.
Truck driving does not require a PhD, but it requires a lot of experience, skill and most of all, common sense, which 50% of the people driving today just don't have.
#27465 Apr 2, 2014
You have a very limited memory I see. I had health insurance and lost it because of DumBama. If not for that big eared freak, I would still have it today. One more time: I don''t have health insurance because of DumBama and the Democrats. It's not that tough.
#27466 Apr 2, 2014
Sorry OG, but yes I do wish that on him.
Political discourse is political discourse, but when anybody stoops as low as to challenge or attack a person based on their handicap, disability or even disease, I put them in the same category as those half-a-sissies that beat up on girls. Like a lot of people here, I put up with a lot from others, but everybody has a line that none should cross.

Watch out folks, here comes the global warming expert truck driver:
World's top climate scientists confess: Global warming is just QUARTER what we thought - and computers got the effects of greenhouse gases wrong
Leaked report reveals the world has warmed at quarter the rate claimed by IPCC in 2007
Scientists accept their computers may have exaggerated
A leaked copy of the world’s most authoritative climate study reveals scientific forecasts of imminent doom were drastically wrong.
The Mail on Sunday has obtained the final draft of a report to be published later this month by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the ultimate watchdog whose massive, six-yearly ‘assessments’ are accepted by environmentalists, politicians and experts as the gospel of climate science.
They are cited worldwide to justify swingeing fossil fuel taxes and subsidies for ‘renewable’ energy.
Yet the leaked report makes the extraordinary concession that over the past 15 years, recorded world temperatures have increased at only a quarter of the rate of IPCC claimed when it published its last assessment in 2007.
Back then, it said observed warming over the 15 years from 1990-2005 had taken place at a rate of 0.2C per decade, and it predicted this would continue for the following 20 years, on the basis of forecasts made by computer climate models.

WOW! What about NASA?
Report: 95 percent of global warming models are wrong
3:30 PM 02/11/2014
Environmentalists and Democrats often cite a “97 percent” consensus among climate scientists about global warming. But they never cite estimates that 95 percent of climate models predicting global temperature rises have been wrong.
Former NASA scientist Dr. Roy Spencer says that climate models used by government agencies to create policies “have failed miserably.” Spencer analyzed 90 climate models against surface temperature and satellite temperature data, and found that more than 95 percent of the models “have over-forecast the warming trend since 1979, whether we use their own surface temperature dataset (HadCRUT4), or our satellite dataset of lower tropospheric temperatures (UAH).”
“I am growing weary of the variety of emotional, misleading, and policy-useless statements like ‘most warming since the 1950s is human caused’ or ‘97% of climate scientists agree humans are contributing to warming’, neither of which leads to the conclusion we need to substantially increase energy prices and freeze and starve more poor people to death for the greater good. Yet, that is the direction we are heading,”

the responsibility of driving that truck is what you receive pay for.
I have driven the boat in the snow and did not like it a bit. My hands hurt for a week from the white knuckles. I only had to pull it about 20 miles, and that was 20 to many.
50% of drivers forget they can kill instantly for being stupid.
I drive lots for someone not paid for doing so. I am a traffic hazard with cruise set at 75 on I71.
last week on way home from cincinnati I was in right lane 75 on cruise control, and constantly being trapped by people I passed 3 times already. When I had enough of it I showed the idiots real immediate speed.
I pulled directly in front of a chick who could not hold constant speed, and showed her E85 tune with fire coming out the exhaust. Car goes from 75 to 150 in about 500 yards. I went by a state patrolman who must have seen the occurrence, and he pulled her over. Maybe he took easy pickings.
Car has onboard computer that keeps average speed. it resets with each start. I figured I was toast and was going to playback my speed for past 2 hours. It would have done nothing I am sure, but the state cars have zero chance of catching car by themselves. my pulling over I hoped would achive brownie points.
I won't be doing that again on 71. That car I drive is absolutely amazing the power it produces with a tiny engine. You and I could lift it without a hoist no problem. After i voided the warranty in the 1st week with aftermarket parts and pro tune...dyno 452 HP to the ground with all wheel drive. Alcohol tune makes this pup a nasty beast, and so far no corvette or BMW is even a challenge.
in the twisties nothing can touch it....nothing.
2014 Mitsubishi Evolution MR Touring, and Slow Motion Motorsports hop up and tune. look on youtube where evo races world class skiers down the slope. that video made me buy the car.
1/4 mile in 10.94.

These stories just keep getting and better, for both of you, xxx.
#27470 Apr 2, 2014
Really? You either couldn't have gotten or wouldn't have been able to afford to have got insurance before. It's the law now. Even for people like you.
#27471 Apr 2, 2014
I have an employee who has a daughter that had open heart surgery in 1st week of life.
That is called a pre-existing condition.
For 10 years I have paid the health insurance in entirety for the family.
If you have pre-existing conditions your premium is higher.....imagine that.
if you have a DUI your insurance is higher......is this science for you?
why is it you will pay for DUI insurance with no complaint, but health care.....it is not fair.
you get a loan to fix your car, but not your body.
not to smucking fart.
#27472 Apr 2, 2014
keep that in mind sheep....I will still be laughing.
#27473 Apr 2, 2014
I was parroting Mutt's use of the 'rocket scientist' comment. I have towed a boat to Laurel Lake a number of times & Dale Hollow too. I can attest to all of your points.
I have driven trucks with 28' boxes. And towed many a trailer.
I have never driven a big rig but I know that I don't want to.
XXX has been a little inconsistent & may deserve some of the shots at him. I just don't see the validity or intelligence to denigrate ALL truck drivers like Mutt has been doing. Make the insults specific to the 'target' NOT any entire field & then also in a very exaggerated degree & ridiculous way.
I'm not defending XXX specifically but ALL truckers in general. It takes a certain skill & demeanor to do that job. Like you said,(paraphrasing) it isn't for everyone.
#27474 Apr 2, 2014
I don't know what you mean by "inconsistent" and "deserving of shots" but I do appreciate your support for all of us truck drivers. Especially with those who claim how easy it all is when they've probably never set foot in a truck yet alone drove one. I would even bet that some here don't even have a drivers license. LOL!
#27475 Apr 2, 2014
Don't give DumBama any more ideas. I've already lost my health insurance. I don't need to be losing my auto or house insurance next.
Liberals are "me, me, me" people. All they look at is what the government is going to give us next, but never ask who is going to pay for it. To a liberal, everything is just magic.
Get unemployment for a year, magic, nobody really has to pay for it. Make the air or water cleaner, magic, nobody really has to pay for it. Make minimum wage $15.00 per hour, magic, nobody really has to pay for it. Give everybody and anybody healthcare insurance, magic, nobody really has to pay for it. Government giving out free cell phones, magic, nobody really has to pay for it.
I wonder if all liberals think like the Obama Money lady. Liberals can't come to terms with the fact government doesn't have anything. They don't produce anything, they don't create profit on anything. So if government gives me a loaf of bread, they must first take that loaf of bread from the table of another, or borrow the money to provide me that loaf of bread that some people not even born yet will have to pay for.

Like most insured people in this country, I got my insurance through my employer. But ever since Commie Care was passed, the premiums kept getting more and more expensive. The last two years being the worst.
So now we have this system where everybody is going to be insured. Of course it's a giant joke, but it's what you liberals think. How is this done? Through subsidies. What is a subsidy? It's taking money from one person and giving it to another.
It reminds me of an article Walter E Williams wrote several years ago. He asked if it would be a crime if he went into your house, took money from your purse or wallet, and gave it to a lady down the street for medical care? Of course it would be a crime. You would call the police, have him arrested, and he would likely go to jail. It matters not what he did with your money.
So it it's a crime when we take actions like that individually, why is it not a crime when government does it? Not only is it not a crime, but they are praised for it besides.
