Back in the late 70's early 80's, Penske had his racing shops in Reading pa. He had a team racing big rigs. Well after shutting down the truck racing, they just turned the trucks back into rentals. I ended up using a brigadier general, that was one of the retired racers. So guys thanks for bringing back a great memory.
Our Brigadiers were far from racing trucks.

Because everyone that works for ABF, Who knows anything about moving freight. Will be retiring in the next 5 years. ABF will be left with nothing but a bunch of Judies
But those who do know are teaching those who don't, because even when they retire they still need abf to be successful, so they keep contributing to the fund, just as those before these folks, so they do have a vested intrest in abf continuing to be successful and I'm sure they are well aware of that,

! The !% have set us up for a takedown, and you aren't invited to participate this time. You will be considered a useful idiot for the rich. Our currency has been debased. All the old saws about economics no longer apply.
Patriotism and belief in The United States is admirable but misplaced. The 20th century was the American century but the 21st belongs to China. Huff and puff, stomp your feet and villainize me all you want, every economist knows it. The Chinese middle class is larger than the entire population of North America. China is the largest new car market on the planet. China now has a stock market and a supply and demand free market economy. 1.3 billion consumers live in China making it the largest market. The Chinese military is larger than Americas. The Chinese will take Taiwan and America and her allies will be powerless to stop them. China recently tested a hypersonic missile that we don't have and used a space based weapon to destroy an orbiting satellite.
The United States is adding to an already crushing debt and devaluing our currency through inflationary spending. Business will continue to move overseas not because of cheap labor but because of our unstable government, taxation and ever changing regulation. Long term investing in facilities and equipment requires long term stability. In America, rules, regulation and taxation change with every election. Until Americans understand that we do indeed live in a worldwide economy, we will continue to be a nation in decline. Unions are a part of that. The pendulum has swung too far and must self correct. The idea that business exists for the benefit of the worker and that profits belong to employees, that individuals are not responsible for their futures and government's job is to be our parent and caregiver is straight out of the Socialist agenda that has destroyed every country where it has been tried.

Well then. Maybe if you put a hypersonic missile, a pendulum that does not self correct, and a country without government intervention on your Christmas list, Santa will get them for you. But you are going to have to be a good little boy. No more crying or pouting!!!

He wants Government intervention....when it benefits him...medicare for all for his wife (even though they are wealthy) because she pays too much for insurance....government backed bankruptcy laws so when you don't want to be responsible, you don't have to be (of course this only applies to RB)....I seriously don't believe the pendulum has swung because if it had I dont think the big truckload companies would have to import people to drive for them....only in RBs world ..

Indeed, I do believe that the United States needs a national healthcare system similar to that which every other civilized nation has. Why are the wealthy, like you who have the best insurance available at no cost to you, the only people in America who can afford to stay healthy? Why is healthcare not a human rights issue?
Why would you care about personal bankruptcy? It's the evil lenders and corporations who lose.
Now that we have covered what I didn't say, typical. Why not address the points I did make like crushing debt, unstable government, China's growth as it moves toward capitalism, America's decline as we move toward socialism and China's inevitable future as the world's largest economy with the most powerful military.

Medicare for all is socialism, but its ok because it benefits a wealthy guy like you..It isn't at no cost for me, I pay them with my labor...just as you did.....Personal bankruptcy affects us all that's why...it is also a mark of character or a lack of it...higher interest rates and fees because of irresponsible people and then you come on here preaching responsibility... I don't take advice from hypocrites....crushing debt....it wasn't a problem for you when Trump was in office...we had debt then too....unstable government... it has been like that since the beginning of the Republic...China's growth was inevitable since both parties don't care about us...how come America is in decline forever (I remember hearing the same thing in the 70s the sky is still above my head even now!), but our unstable government changes every four years, don't you think you are being a bit of an over reactor? I think America is going to survive just fine..... The inevitable says you...I prefer to listen to people who know what they talk about....
