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!<quoted text> 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.

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.

The real charts that show the rising costs don't show that. Your next lying point?

We get those people all the time all day long. These drivers don't have the intelligence to learn how to use cruise control and don't have the ability to monitor their speedometer.
The worst ones are the clowns that speed up to the truck, and then drive right next to us. If you speed up, they speed up with you. If you slow down, they slow down with you. Those idiots are the ones I hate the most.
A few years back I had one of those clowns next to me in the left lane. We were coming to a sharp curve in the highway, and I noticed that somebody must have dropped an empty pallet in the left lane of the road. The guy in the left lane just ahead of me seen the pallet and I backed off to let him in. He was in a SUV and the joker that was driving next to me had no idea that pallet was there. I laughed as I watched him smash into that pallet and then drove into the wall in my mirror. LOL! I thought to myself "that's why you don't drive next to a truck you idiot."
What people don't realize is that our truck tires have large groves in them unlike a car. It's very common we do pickups and deliveries at places too cheap to lay down asphalt. So their lot is all gravel. Those rocks get embedded in the groves of our tires, and they dislodge at will. Those rocks shoot right through a radiator or condenser, and then you're stuck getting your vehicle repaired for leaks or getting replacement parts. Very expensive.

...'may be deserving of shots' is quite subjective...no judgement there from me. But at sometime, each of us rubs someone the wrong way.
Some more than others & I don't consider that one subjective. lol
#27480 Apr 2, 2014
Did you lie about having zero income and not paying taxes, Walter? Is that why you get so testy any time I bring it up?
#27482 Apr 2, 2014
Grow up. You do that to people everyday, complaining about any and every person who benefits from any social program. You like to criticize nameless, faceless people who are no more responsible for their situation in life than you are for yours. You are a big tough guy when criticizing them and big baby when it comes to taking responsibility for your own situation. Now go smoke a couple dozen cigarettes and drink a twelve pack of Pepsi.
#27483 Apr 2, 2014
Nothing like a pompous ass like you to dig your own cesspool. Wallow well, pig, it's you last meal. HPV got you by the twat, that;s why you soo angry. The gods haz spoken, and you are not among the chosen ones. we'll be watching your demise, popcorn in hand, clapping at every flailing throe you fail. Occupy your own mind before you try to occupy my liberties, you worthless lout. Sinking ship with tattered sails, heading for the bottom. Have a nice fall.
.Mebbe obamacare cover your mental ward stay. be cool there until da haldol kick in, gf., or you get no cookies and tea

You are getting very close to "menacing", and there are laws against that. Just like the thug that says "it's a nice shop you have here --- it would be a shame if it burned down" you don't say directly that YOU would burn it down, and so you think you get a pass. But, if that poster's house burned down tomorrow, Topix would give you up in a second.
OK, I went back and reviewed the messages. The poster said that you are fat and a smoker. You know if that is true or not. He's attributing those bad habits to your difficulties with getting a medical certification. If I understand you, he crosses the line when he mentions diabetes, because that can be a genetic condition that is beyond your control.
And that is sometimes true. But diabetes can also be a disease we "choose" by our bad lifestyle choices. So it's hard to know if that's your situation or not.
But let's assume your diabetes is not due to some bad choices, but was just something you were born with. In that case, I agree with you. It's wrong to criticize someone because of the way they were born --- things that they cannot control.
So, by your own logic, when you disparage Obama because of his "big ears" or because he's a "half-breed", YOU are crossing that same line. You are mocking him for things that he cannot control.

You have an employee that you pay coverage for? Only in your dreams.
#27487 Apr 3, 2014
unlike your useless self, I have multiple income streams.
I am so pleased you are envious.
If you applied yourself and actually worked, you also could afford stuff.
I had to mail my taxes in yesterday because I will be in Asia for 17 days. The checks I had to send in above the quarterly payments exceeds your annual income.
when are you going to pay your fair share?
since you don't , then your services need cut to actually what you pay for.
If you don't like it.....awwwwwww.....that is to bad.
no go make love to your Mickey Mouse Doll.
#27488 Apr 3, 2014
in my dreams trash like you is deposited in a dump.
wait...that is no dream.......you are deposited in a dump.
your envy is a great gift to me...thanks.
#27489 Apr 3, 2014
My social program is parties and dinners out with friends.
The audacity of restaurant to expect me to actually pay for our dinner is atrocious.
you are a complete idiot.
it is someone else's fault you are more ignorant than a rock and can't support yourself.
It is societies fault your mommy did not abort you, and you demand payment.
Hope you don't mind spit as your new makeup.
#27491 Apr 3, 2014
You live with mommy and have to pay taxes? For what? When does this fantasy trip to Asia start? The Grand Buffet in the shopping mall don't count.
#27492 Apr 3, 2014
Your fantasy of my life is your envy on display, and considered a complement by me. You inflated my pride.....thanks.
To be succinct....6AM this Saturday is wheels up to JFK airport to catch plane to Beijing.
Then 6 days later another plane to Bangkok, then 8 days later back to JFK to hop on plane to CMH.
My father died 10 years ago, and Mom is traveling with me so she can shop. My wife is going as well.
I have business appointments and they are my assistants. This allows all expenses be deducted from my income as business expenses.
the trip will have minimum of 20K in business expenses, and the product I import will also have over 80K in freight charges deducted. So 100K business expenses will be deducted so I can sell chumps like you plastic crap that triples my investment.
now go slobber your envy with someone who cares.
PS: have the IRS audit me. It will save me money in accounting fees. The IRS can do my taxes for me as far as I am concerned.
Now go have a miserable day you petulant punk.

His "multiple income streams" are his parents, his wife, and his gubment "crazy in the head" check, respectively. He calls himself a "White Lion" because he lets the females in his life do all the work, while he daydreams in the shade...
#27494 Apr 3, 2014
My females have Masters Degrees, and earn more annually than you do in a decade. That includes both 25 year old daughters.
and multiplying efforts with employees allows me to earn daily what your new wage Obama just signed does in a week, and sometimes 3 weeks.
A entire block of Van Wert sold would not buy any car in my driveway.
Want a fact check.....then take a bus to Columbus Polaris Mall to meet for lunch someday....my treat.
Maybe then your head will see the light that applying yourself produces reward.
#27495 Apr 3, 2014
Over 7 million people have happily signed up for health care, exceeding what the government had hoped for. A huge success, in spite of the fact that out of touch, Lawrence Welk fan Conservatives couldn't wrap their heads around the common problem web sites have on their initial launch day. Now, let's cut to 6 different people on Fox News claiming there is no way the government will ever reach the 7 million goal they had hoped for. Each one gleefully hoping that the government of the United States of America would fail. Each one looking like an idiot and a traitor to their own country, but as always with the right wingers, dodging any accountability for their actions or claims.
#27496 Apr 3, 2014
have you gone and re-defined success?
spending billions to sign up less than 2% of the population with subsidized healthcare is success.
By any sane measure.....epic failure are what the results are of Obamacare.
Fact check by all the punishments for not abiding with commiecare postponed till after the next 2 election cycles.
If you ever file income taxes....the 2013 version of the 1040 asks for your insurance policy info.
Real Americans wrote FO you union lazy pigs....look it up yourself.
