SORT BY Relevancy
For years truckers have been talking about a shutdown in attempts to display their grievances: Low pay, high fuel prices, CSA, EOBR’s, cross border trucking, detention pay,categorized as unskilled labor, the need for truck driver training standards, and continued increase in regulations.
Now drivers are faced with a different situation, not a “shutdown”, but rather a convoy to Washington on October 11th - 13th.. The question is: Why? To display grievance within the trucking industry or to protest government corruption?
Truckers Ride for the Constitution is calling on a GENERAL STRIKE, asking all Americans to join the trucker convoy and stand with truckers by “doing nothing” no commerce, no banking, no shopping.
Will such a display help or hurt truckers? For years truckers have been trying to create awareness and get the support and empathy of the American people, but will this convoy create the kind of attention that they have sought so long for?
Although such a strike is unlikely and the ride is now focused on political motives, join us as we discuss what may really be going on as truckers plan for a ride on Washington.

TOPIC: Suspension of the July 2013 Hours of Service Changes
The Women Truckers Network Discusses "The Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2015" which was enacted on December 16, 2014, suspending enforcement of requirements for use of the 34-hour restart as it was defined in July 2013. The sudden change left many drivers confused about what components were included, AND left out of the "deal" made by the American Trucking Association (ATA) lobby group and Senator Susan Collins (R-ME).
While overall, truck drivers are in favor of the mandates that were enacted in the 2013 restart, clarification to the people these federal regulations affect remained cloudy. Where did the number 82 come from? IS the 30 minute break part of this decision? What happens if you are stopped by the DOT and they have not been advised of the change?
The WTN shares 1st hand experiences with the restart and other observations on protecting yourself during the transition while awaiting the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to publish the new rules. This podcast recording was created prior to the FMCSA posting a final rule. You can now locate them on the internet using this link: Summary of Hours of Service Regulations
The concept of "Citizenship", and the nationalist propaganda which accompanies it, are as old as the hills. The fear-stricken are the most likely to give up freedom for a sense of security -- the high priests of even the most "uncivilized" peoples understand this principle and utilize it to this day. Citizens are those who have given up a freeman's sovereignty for the sake of virtual anonymity in the collective, even in a so-called "capitalist" or "democratic" society.
The Constitution for the United States is one of the most idolized documents in recent history, but why? What does it even have to say? What does it have to do with your life? Does it protect you from your own personal boogeyman?
Join Burt, Greg, Casey, and guests as we discuss these ideas and more!

Defending the Constitution and conservative values
Recent events in the US have illustrated the need for law and order and a return to conservative values. But like so many Americans, it's hard to know what we can do?Let's start with your County Sheriff !
How many of you know the extent of the authority of your county sheriff? Have you ever heard the term " posse commitatus" ? The truth is that your county sheriff is the front line defense against a federal or state government tyranny. Why is that? We'll discuss the powers a sheriff has and why it's critical that your sheriff be a CONSTITUTIONAL sheriff. In other words, a sheriff that steadfastly defends and upholds the US Constitution. The way to bring America back to greatness is from the grass roots level. Chief of which is your county sheriff.
