Oct. 11-13 is the date set for a nationwide truckers strike, it has a following on Facebook and is taking off. They are protesting high fuel prices and the Obama administration's attack on the constitution, among other grievances. They are sending a large convoy of trucks to DC and want consumers to stay home and not buy anything for 3 days.

It is plain to see that congress is not going to do anything. Time for the people to take control back from the government that has sold out to them. 3 days and the stores in the supermarket start getting empty, 3 day trucker strike would cost the corporations billions of dollars. Send Wall Street and the government the message we are not going to take it anymore!

So you call people "WHITE TRASH" on here regularly! How about me and millions more who think Obama is a sack of black trash. Difference is: WE KNOW exactly what that SOB is and you have no idea who you are calling "WHITE TRASH".

Now, you black trash POS....Go back to Bob Amos Park and take it up the rear like you do every other day.

Wow, YOU have some serious "mental problems". You need to get out more, your brain is warped.
YOU are a total jerk and a poor excuse of a human being.
If you can call someone "white trash" then you must come from a family that raised a "fool" and an ignorant, uneducated oaf. My sympathy to your parents.

See the thing is, those people who call Obama black trash. Are in fact the reason i laugh at you guys, think about it. Apparently he did something right he got reelected. Besides no one will ever take you guys seriously anyway, hell which such goodies as:

Forming human chains around highways protesting the war on coal
Rallies to Protest the war on coal
The announced truck protest

You know what they all have in common? They havent fixed a damn thing and were a waste of time. Get with reality and do something that will make a difference then people will take you hicks seriously, after all honking because coal keeps the power on sure does send a message to everyone LOL

You are right about what you said:(" Apparently he did something right he got reelected.")

He gave out millions of 'Obama phones; put millions on the food stamp program who didn't even come close to qualifying; Destroyed a way of life in the entire coal industry. The black trash SOB BOUGHT the black and Hispanic votes with OUR money and that's what the bastard "did right' to get elected again.

Give you people "stuff" and you'd vote for the f*cking devil himself. Idiot!

The only way you can send a message to this Wall Street and Corporate controlled government is to hit them in the pocket book. We need a nationwide 3 day truckers strike a we need for everybody to not buy anything for 3 days! Let the add up the losses after the smoke clears. We have began exporting oil again, if they have enough oil to export they can lower fuel prices at home first. No way should they be exporting oil and oil products when diesel is almost $4 a gallon here in the U.S.

Let's shut it down for three days 11-13th in Oct. se if we can't get their attention.

Yep, you are correct! Now since we don't import as much and hardy any from the middle east how come our gas is still so high. Every time some one sneezes over there they raise the price of oil, we don't get oil from that part of the world so how do they justify raising gas prices in the U.S.
I hope a good truckers strike will get the oil out of the futures market, where about 30% of the price is from speculators.
