You responded to posts from 12/7 & 12/8 of last year. Way to stay on top of things….
Sorry, it's hard to keep up with every post when I'm in Yorkshire. Check it out. You might enjoy it there. I was there with extended family. It's much nicer, but more expensive, in the summer tourist season. Grantley Hall is the hotel. It's a bit far but there are flights from Manchester to London if you want to do the tourist thing. All of England is beautiful. You should avoid Scotland, to many nasty little flying bugs.

The government did not kill trucking companies. Competition, capitalism, the free market killed trucking companies. Removing socialist government control of transportation killed trucking companies AND gave birth to many more trucking companies and many more good jobs.
You know full well that before deregulation, freight companies had to pay for operating authority to operate in certain areas. After deregulation, all the new, start up freight companies could just jump right in at no cost and operate in any area. This cost burden put a great deal of former freight companies out of business due to that cost disadvantage brought on by deregulation. When all of these companies went out of business, they no longer paid into these multi-employer pension funds. That is how we ended up having all of these underfunded pension funds. So yes, the government did have a hand in the underfunding of these pension plans when they deregulated the industry. You know this, but I am sure you will try to spin it a different way.

I'm sure the good people of Yorkshire are complaining about a certain pest right now themselves....

It’s a shame you did not like it enough to stay there for good.

All of us can't afford luxury like you rich folks.
I probably had more free sightseeing time over there than you, (thanks to your tax dollars)
To be honest, I never cared much for a place that has its steering wheels on the wrong side.

WOW! who would have thought you would be extolling the magnificence of such a state-run socialist quagmire as England. Are you British nobility, by chance?

Of course he knows this, he just chooses to ignore this truth and bloviate about unions. But thank you for rubbing his nose in it....
