Truckers: Don't Tread on Me

When the truckers roll April 23, it will be within the speed limit, but barely. The minimum speed limit, that is. American truckers will be forming a "rolling blockade," stopping up traffic surrounding the Capitol, in protest of the Bush administration's plans to, within weeks, allow Mexican trucks to operate freely across the U.S., presumably operated by drivers unable to read English traffic signs.

The protest plans have been published widely across the internet, such as in The People's Media Company story, Breaker, Breaker, a "Truck Out" Planned Over Mexican Drivers Entering the USA.

Despite opposition by Congress, unions and even the US DOT, Bush has his teeth dug into this one. I'd guess he feels it a good first step toward the North American Union he's set on furthering. Of course, you all know he signed the Security and Prosperity Partnership Of North America pact last year with Mexico and Canada. Our new nation has it's official government website at www.spp.gov.

Was that a collective yawn? The United States is soooo Twentieth Century.

For more fun along these lines, I recommend reading about our new North American Legal System. Bye-bye, Bill of Rights (soooo Eighteenth Century).

In France, farmers or truckers or the aggravated group of the moment would blockade the highways to the airport, causing huge jams -- and the people would support THEM! That's why they always have such crap.

I've always thought that if someone pulled such a stunt here, and the president called in F-16's for an airstrike, the president's approval would skyrocket. "We all got issues buddy, so don't f*** with my ability to get around" seemed to me to be the American attitude.

So if the truckers want to protest fine. But it better not inconvenience me or whatever sympathy I had for their cause before will go to zero.

If federal employees, lobbyists and Congressmen can't get in to DC for a few days, the truckers will have already done the nation a service.
