  • https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2018/04/26/truck-driver-shortage-raises-prices/535870002/ This article projects a shortage of more than 100,000 by 2022... that's far worse than previous estimates I last heard.
  • @filious said: Even more important are the automated semi trucks. They'll probably assign drivers to two or three trucks at a time and if half or more of truckers end up out of work it's going to complete the hollowing out of small town/rural Am…

  • My vote is, creative genius but impractical... He's got wonderful ideas, but his delivery stinks... Nothing he does seems to be done with any consideration to sustainability. I also wonder if he's ADHD.
  • @Bill said: They can take their families with them. If they are being broken up, it's by the criminal infiltrator's choice. That's probably the most callous response I've ever seen you give... Dude was brought here as a child... "crimi…

  • It reminds me of the opening of the Batman movie (I think, The Dark Night) that opens with Batman beating down some bad-guys in a parking garage. Everything is going, as expected, and then something happens and the tables are turned. Then, the real …

  • @fenomas said: The presidency is unrecognizable. It's really weird to wonder what future history books will say about it (if such there be). "He took care of his friends and said, 'f%@k you' to his critics": https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/31…

  • Don't look now... The President has gone off the rails: https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/31/politics/martha-stewart-rod-blagojevich-trump-pardons/index.html Well... more off the rails than typical.

  • Isn't a failure to show a sufficient amount of nationalism cause for condemnation in America? I'd always believed that was a thing... The number of "flag-wavers" is always a point of amusement, whenever I travel in the US.
