I’m reaching the point of saturation with political topics. It seems that at every turn there is some battle taking place within America’s politics. So at times, I tell myself . . . no more. Then, another piece of news breaks and it is so important and vital to our way of life, that I have to step in to the ring once again and prepare for yet another fight.
Thanks to TruckerToTrucker, we now discover that today, Sunday, August 9th, 2009 – Mr. Obama and “Mexican President Felipe Calderon will be discussing cross-border trucking at the North American Leaders Summit.” Furthermore, “President Calderon will pressure President Obama to move forward with opening U.S. roads to Mexico-domiciled trucking companies and truck drivers.” You can read their post : Mexican trucks are coming – for the full story and who to contact to voice your disapproval of this issue.
As I posted on TruckertoTrucker, this guy and his administration is out to do whatever they can to destroy the livelihood of so many Americans. I have nothing against Mexico and their people. I love the country and its culture and so forth, but millions of Americans are without work, thousands of drivers are finding it difficult to locate work, thousands more of CDL grads cannot find a driving job, after the CDL schools took their money anyway … and not to mention the safety factor involved for our nations’ travelers. It’s all under the disguise of the NAFTA agreement, but it’s only one more way to pull America down and create more hardships for the citizens of this country.
Check out their article and you will find contact information for those to let your voices be heard that this is yet another “policy” that would be detrimental to America.
