Life Through the Windshield

The life of a trucker


Elon, North Carolina, USA
February 04
Truck Driver/Lease Operator
Where do you start with something like this. I'm your typical white male. I'm married, for the third time. I have 9 kids and 4 grandchildren. Currently I'm an OTR truck driver. I've been doing it for the past year and a half, but I've had several careers. This one is just the latest. In the past I've tried selling cars. That didn't last long. I should say it didn't take me very long to figure out that I'm to honest to sell cars. I've spent lots of years in the restaurant business. Most of that was in the pizza business either as a manager for other or for myself. I also spent 8 years in the Air Force working in ER's and flying Aeromedical Evacuation. I have to say, the biggest mistake I've ever made was getting out. Anything else you want to know, just ask. I'll tell you.

What now for the Republicans of the House? There are basically three things that they must do.

President Obama's reelection was no mandate. It may be several days before we even know what the final vote counts were. I'm glad that Governor Romney isn't going to drag the… Read full post »

Well I've decided to do what almost all men dream of. I'm going to sell pussy. It's not just everyday pussy. I already have found two high quality and high cost little things. That was about three months ago. I'm now up to five and… Read full post »

I wish I was that creative

I read things here that are really good.  Most of them are facts, human interest, or opinion pieces.  I have to say that I really enjoy what I read and I often find myself wishing that I had the ability to write and tell stories like the people I follow.

Then… Read full post »

Obama's green energy pipe dream

President Obama was pushing green technology again a short while ago.  That got me thinking.  How much energy do Americans use, and if we replaced it what would we need.  It's great to talk about “going green”, it's another thing when you try to figure out what it really me… Read full post »

Stimulus dollars being spent on?

I seems so long ago that we had to pass the stimulus bill or the country was doomed. We could pass this bill and unemployment would not go sky high. We have all these "shovel ready" projects that all we have to do is have money for and hard… Read full post »

Trucking proves things are getting better.

First let me issue a challenge to you to prove my point.  Name one thing you have that at some point didn't ride on the back of a truck?  Trucking is the life blood of the economy.  If we are to grow the country needs… Read full post »

How to go to jail at 17

Trig, you asked for it, you got it.

For those of you who's age starts with a 5 or more you may have to explain some of this to our younger readers.  Back in the day we had cars that had balls.  No rice burners, just pure American muscle. 

I don't know if it will stop the wars, but this is good stuff.

 Come on, be a patriot.

So what is better than a chocolate fudge sunday with a cherry on top?  Well from a fat guy I would normally say nothing, but the truth is friends.

An open letter to Senator Hagan of NC

Dear Senator Hagan:

On November 24, 2009 I wrote your office asking questions about the health care bill.  I received a reply that was a brush off saying we will get back in touch with you.  I have since sent a second letter that was not replied to either.

I was just reading American Public High School Stories: A Microcosm by amittiaz.  I got to the reply by Runaway Serfer which said ;“This is why I think Lincoln made a huge mistake. If he had declared victory, and told them, "go ahead and have your Confederate States, only build it… Read full post »

You know that always say what goes around comes around.  This is older than most of the people on OS who will view it but after the last few months of Congress doing it's stuff, it still makes a point.  Read full post »

Public Option and Vending Machines

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi earlier today rolled out the House's version of health care reform. The bill is a 1,990 page whopper, downloadable here. I've been able to poke through it a bit and, beginning at page 1,510, I encountered something that will embiggen the hearts of public health advocat/Read full post »

Open letter to Obama from P&G exec

This is a letter from a respected exec of P&G.  He sent it to the NY Times who did nothing with it.  Maybe we should listen to one of the exec who helped make this country great.

Having a really bad day

Have you ever gone back to see if you did something that you do dozens of times everyday?  Do you ever go back and check the oven, and yes it's off? Have you checked to see if you set the alarm clock, and sure enough you did?
