SORT BY Relevancy
Just as the Denham Amendment attempted, but failed, to prevent Fair wages for truckers in last years Highway Bill known as the FAST ACT, once again the large motor carriers (ATA) have managed to slip in the same exact provision into H.R. 4441, the Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization Act, otherwise known as the FAA Reauthorization Bill.
The Act was introduced by the House of Representatives. The “AIRR” Act as it is called, is a bill designed to authorize aviation programs, but on pp 256-258, Title VI, Sec 611, labeled Federal Authority, the attack on driver wages was slipped in by these members of the U.S House of Transportation Committee.

We believe this attack on wages exploits new CDL drivers. Attorney Christina Humphrey is our guest who will discuss Section A and B of the provisions within the FAA Reauthorization Bill.

Dr. Jay Sanders is President and CEO of The Global Telemedicine Group and an Adjunct Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is also the founding board member of the American Telemedicine Association where he serves as President Emeritus.
In this podcast interview, Dr. Sanders shares his thoughts about the deficiencies in today’s healthcare delivery systems and the solutions that can overcome them in the future. Dr. Sanders believes that the evolution of technology, including telemedicine and the use of artificial intelligence to aid doctors will be the easy part of the transition. The real challenge, according to Dr. Sanders will be doing more to enable a behavioral change that places the patient front and center in their own care and treatment.

Trucking Open Forum - Special Alert to discuss Transportation Bill Amendment
Special Show Alert Tuesday 11/17/15
6PM ET Call in 347-826-9170
The House Transportation bill has an amendment, which, if approved in the final version of the House and Senate Transportation bill, could be damaging regarding wages of professional drivers. It's called the Denham Amendment 114-21.
Last week the Truth About Trucking network set out an all out campaign to bring awareness to this harmful amendment.
Listen to Saturdays Denham Amendment segment on AskTheTrucker "Live' here
We have been joined by many, including TruckersUnited.org, the Professional Truckers Association Group, and thousands of drivers throughout the country. But still many are confused as to what the repercussions affecting drivers will be.
Today, OOIDA announced their strong opposition to the Denham Amendment sending a call to action to their members, claiming it would unravel mandated fair-pay for drivers and would empower large carriers to further reduce driver wages. THey also said that It would also gut the ability for states to address critical items like payment for detention time, safety training and medical examinations or other costs associated with licensing procedures.
Tonight we have an additional to our regularly scheduled show to discuss the Denham Amendment and further explain what it would mean to professional drivers if added to the final version of the Transportation bill.

AskTheTrucker 'Live' opens its lines to the trucking community to discuss industry topics on your mind. We’ll open up with the “Perception of the driver shortage” and if there is really one.
The ATA Truck Driver Shortage Report recently state that carriers feel there is a shortage of quality drivers, or in other words, hirable drivers.
Drivers are saying there’s just a shortage of drivers who are willing to work for low wages. Who is right? And what is that definition of a “quality driver”? You’ll be surprised to learn how carriers determine what a quality driver is.
Other topics include wages, regulations, jobs, health, lifestyle, and ANYTHING “trucking”

The MOST HIGH must be wroshipped in ALL THINGS AS HE IS! NOT as MEN have diversely imagined! It will by and large be a SHOCK to all the whole world to realize WHAT has been the OBSTACLE to ALL! For humanity by and large has NOT discerned the truth of the Great Commission nor understand what was is the dispensation of the gospel! The true Messiah came not for the preservation of any manner of worldly deceit; not will He! In fact, that unto YAH every knee shall bow and every tongue confess unto HIM allegiance, He comes to declare THE STANDARD that will EXPOSE as having been NO COVENANT ATA ALL, every manner of worldly misconceit and defender of the Pretender! The wisest soul discerns that this world has created a FALSE CHURCH to PRESERVE LAWLESSNESS rather than DESTROY IT! Indeed! Rulers of this world have perversely MISadministered the scriptures than men be beguiled to worship SIN! (2Thessolonians 2:1-<7-11 .. Isaiah 11:1-4>-12, 14:1-5)
So as to preserve every manner of worldliness, world rulers murderously persecuted the believers of the early church. After having infiltrated to corrupted the knowledge of the faith, a world has been beguiled to preserve mass illusions ever since. Protestant reformers protested that the Roman Church was a deliberate pretense against the truth, a mystery of iniquity, a strong delusion causing the masses to believe lies, mass status quo worldly misrepresentations. Nevertheless, the protestant reformation has NOT resulted in a world made true as reconciled wholly untto the will of the One Most High! A multitude of diverse denominational doctrines whether protestant or Catholic, cannot possibly be the pure and perfect will of the ONE! MISrepresentation for being NOT true to the Holy Name, is BABYLON!
Today we will present around the content of two lectures from Imam Mohammed that speaks to his Strategy and Tactics for the growth of Al-Islam in America.

The UNFringed Festival and The Secret Theatre will be presenting AN INTOLERANT VAUDEVILLE, conceived by Sam Viverito, written by Wendy Biller, Chris Hawthorne and Sam Viverito, with music by Ronnie Lawson and lyrics by Ronnie Lawson, Wendy Biller and Chris Hawthorne. Direction by Sam Viverito.
AN INTOLERANT VAUDEVILLE was inspired by Sam Viverito's visit to the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles. Written in the structure of a traditional vaudeville show, An Intolerant Vaudeville cracks open a piñata of slurs, stereotypes and identity politics that will leave the audience gasping from laughter, or maybe from shock.
Sam Viverito (Co-writer, Director) is an internationally recognized director and choreographer.
Wendy Biller (Co-writer, Co-lyricist) is the recipient of the Jury Prize for her play The Refrigerator, which premiered in New Mexico this summer, by the Fusion Theatre Company. Wendy began her career in NYC as a choreographer.
Chris Hawthorne (Co-writer, Co-lyricist) began his career as Assistant Director for the New York Art Theatre, where he worked on and acted in William Burroughs' Naked Lunch and Kenneth Koch's The Red Robins.
Ronnie Lawson (Composer, Co-lyricist) has long been a presence on the New York music scene.
Attention American Transportation Leaders - It is Time to Stop Toll Roads and Restore our Freeways!
Guests: Terri Hall - Texans for Toll-free Highways
Patrick Hand - Stop the Tolls
Americans know there are better ways to fund highways than TOLL TAXES. We know everyone's cost of living goes up with the cost of transportation. We know everyone benefits from transportation regardless of how many miles they drive on the highways. We know it is wrong for our local, state and federal representatives and quasi-governmental agencies to sell-off public infrastructure to foreign corporations. We know "Public Private Partnerships" are nothing more than a major source for governmental corruption. We know these individuals/representatives, quasi-governmental agencies and P3s are NOT working in the best interest of the American people. We know it is up to us to demand changes in transportation.
The time is now for Americans to come together to shut-down toll roads across the U.S.A. We can shut-down the toll roads if we work together.
Here are some of the grassroot groups working to stop toll roads:
North Carolina http://wideni77.org/
North Carolina http://www.stopthetollroad.com/index.html
Illinois - Indiana http://www.openlands.org/illiana
North Carolina http://www.notollsi95.com/position
If you are ready to take back our country and our freeways, contact these groups and get involved!
