Haiti Food Riots
Africa Food Riots
Yemen Food Riots
World Food Crisis
It's all about Biofuels - Biofuel crops replacing grain crops along with drought have caused a world food shortage. Ask yourself - Who knew to plant biofuel crops before the price of oil skyrocketed?
Who controls the Biofuel Industry?
Who bought hundreds of thousands of acres in Paraguay - is it for biofuels/food/water?

Welcome to Life under the New World Order
GM Crops kill Bees and then Mankind

Long Video worth watching:
US food comes from Genetically Modified crops which cover over 80% of the globe. Including biofuel crops. Everything you now eat is genetically modified or created from gm crops.
GM Food is linked to the increases of autism - brain aging in children - the weakest link, growth and immune suppression...time will tell what it does to the rest of us.
You are now dependent on Big Oil and Big Food - Big Water is next - you have been assimilated.
To all my tractor trailer driving trucker friends - have a nice day and enjoy your coffee.

Every corner: Achievement in one area of your life that shines a positive light on all the other areas in your life. So when you seem to be stuck in one part of your life, like driving a tractor trailer, put some effort into making improvements elsewhere.
If, for example, you're having trouble making progress in your career as a truck driver, work on improving your level of physical fitness. The beneficial effects of a higher level of fitness will spill over into all parts of your life.
By the same token, you can't expect to ignore important parts of your life and have things go well in other areas. You can't ignore your spouse and family and expect your job to take up the slack.
Success is a full-time endeavor. It comes when you integrate positive efforts and expectations into every corner of your life.
Your health, your trucking company finances, your friendships, family, faith, community, career, learning, relaxation and recreation all contribute to each other. Balance your time and attention on a daily basis among all the things that truly matter, and the positive momentum will quickly grow.
The achievements that really matter are those that enhance your whole life.

Dont give up Truckers - we are with you in action and in spirit.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."-Theodore Roosevelt

Maybe it's time to change jobs - hmmm... Salmon Fishermen aren't doing much better. Maybe it's time to just take the old boat out. Sometimes a change of scenery can do you good.

A burden you don't deserve:
It's easy to blame someone else for your trucking troubles. Yet when you're truly honest with yourself, it's clear that blaming someone else will not add the slightest bit of value to your life.
It seems fair and reasonable to expect your problems to be solved by the people who caused them, but stop and think about it. Do you really wish to give those people who caused your problems any additional control over your life and your future?
To move your life in the direction you choose to go, you must be willing to take full responsibility for it. That means moving past what's easy and accepting that things are not always going to be fair.
Who knows that better than a Tractor Trailer driver.
Perhaps life has given you a burden you don't deserve. Instead of seeing that as an excuse to give up, see it as an opportunity to give more.
Though you may not have brought the troubles upon yourself, you can nevertheless make positive use of them. Choose to take full responsibility for your own situation, and you'll begin to see how you can rise from it to a level that's higher than ever before.
Real success does not result from everything going perfectly. Real success comes when you're willing to move forward no matter what may happen.

Yes the Truckers Strike of 2008 is still going on this Thursday, April 3rd. I know it's hard to tell because of the lack of news coverage. I am sure you can guess why it is isn't getting any news coverage - because big oil doesn't want it to - and they do control our media.
Until an effect is seen and complained about loud enough - it will not be noticed.
Local newspapers will print stories about the effect it is having long before it will ever get on TV.
Another reason to park it: When you do your taxes at the end of the year and add it all up do you see yourself working for less than $10 an hour driving that tractor trailer? Can you justify doing that? and being away from your family for that? Somethings gotta change.

After all - if you are sitting at home on strike there is no one to interview at the truck stops anyways. So keep on posting daily to the news links listed on the post from the day before which you can see below this post.

Here are a few words of encouragement from my favorite motivational person Ralph Marston:
What tomorrow will bring Life is dynamic.
And for that reason, the bad news is never as bad as it seems.
Whatever may happen, whatever condition may arise, you can adjust to it and make the most of it. Not only can you survive in the face of changing conditions, you can indeed prosper.
When you look at new developments through the lens of your existing assumptions, they can often appear overwhelmingly negative and hopeless. Yet when you start working your way through the new conditions, brilliant opportunities begin to appear at nearly every turn.
Circumstances are constantly changing, and even the changes are constantly changing. As you continue to adapt, and as those around you also adapt, positive new possibilities emerge and take root.
It's difficult to know precisely what tomorrow will bring. Yet you can know with confidence that whatever tomorrow does offer, there will be a way for you to make the most of it.
For the value and goodness of life never go away. They just continue to be presented to you in new and more fulfilling ways.

From Ralph Marston today:
Your destination depends not on where you are but on which way you go. Your results depend not on what has happened, and not on what you have, but on what you do with it all.
From here, you can go anywhere. There are pathways leading in every direction.
What matters now is which of those pathways you choose. What matters now is the next step you take.
Give yourself permission to decide what you truly desire for your life and for your world.
And know that there is a way, right now, to begin creating it.
When your thoughts and actions have a clear, specific purpose, each moment will carry you closer to the fulfillment of that purpose. When you move consistently in a chosen direction, you cannot help but reach the destination you choose.
Lovingly, thoughtfully and carefully select your direction today. You are always moving toward something, so make that something exactly what you wish.

TRUCKERS STRIKE APRIL 1st - 3rd, 2008,
I am so glad the independent truckers are doing this. We need to show our support by joining them in this sit down strike and quit driving for the rest of the week. OK so go out and stock up on groceries first then quit driving as much as possible while this strike is going on.
I don't know how but maybe if enough people join in and they get enough press coverage it will do something to the gas prices. I know it is going to take at least a week before we see the effects of it trickle thru the economy in unstocked shelves and people complaining. Of course I fully expect some people to complain about the truckers instead of understanding why they are striking in the first place - which is outrageously high fuel prices. The large trucking companies get a discount on fuel because they can buy ahead in volume while the indepedent trucker has to pay full price at the pump. I hope that as many truckers as possible can join this strike and that it will make people stand up and take notice. They are really sacrificing folks because if they are not driving they are not making any money and their trucks are still costing them even just sitting idle in insurance costs. It's hard to let a semi truck sit idle when you are paying $8000 plus a year for insurance.
Stand your ground truckers and keep those 18 wheelers shut down as long as you can - I am behind you 100 percent. Good Luck and God Bless.
