It annoys me when I see a truck driving about 6 feet behind my rear bumper. The law of physics would dictate that we still will arrive at our destinations at about the same time! Yet, trucks used to be the gentlemen of the highways. Now there are some who can't even speak English!
Anyone who drives on the highway can share plenty of stories of what we've seen truck do....but most of us have no idea what's going on inside the cab. The new laws and the new fellow-truck drivers have industry and the reputation of the trucks on the roads.
My husband used to drive a truck, so this topic is near and dear to me. It was like having a permanently-installed lobbyist built into my house at all times. It's amazing what we can learn when married to someone who has a strong opinion!
So we did a show to talk about what's happening out there on the road. I hope you find this as helpful as I did.Read More
Politics has become a dirty business. We have all heard plenty of news stories of elected officials involved in scandals, adultery and illegal behavior sending them to prison. There is an old line, “What’s a nice girl like you doing in a place like this?” With all the political nastiness, many wonder why a decent person would enter such a vicious arena. The reason is simple. I love my country, I love my family and I care enough about both to commit my life to preserving that for which our founding fathers lived and died.
Our loyalty must lie with the principles that made our nation strong. We must stand for the Constitution, limited government, and personal responsibility. Many office holders have let us down because they forgot to put those ideals ahead of their own political self-interest. People become disillusioned because they see people run on one set of values only to morph into different people once they become mired in the slime of big money and beholden to the lobbyists. We owe it to our country to change those people. We all have a role to play in our own spheres of influence. Stay with me and you will see that at least one person is capable of putting principles over politics. Together, let’s improve the state we’re in!
