Truck drivers are getting worn down.

I've been non stop in the SW region of the US hauling Walmart trailers exclusively from their distribution center outside of Barstow to the Walmart's in Las Vegas and the Pahrump, NV. trying to keep the food and goods flowing.

I'm now on my 34 hour reset because I ran out of service hours, so I finally get a break and my truck is due for it's B service.

Thank you everyone for your support for us truckers in these trying times.

This is interesting

Trump ‘violates all recognized democratic norms,’ federal judge says in biting speech on judicial independence


Video by The Washington Post

In an unusually critical speech that lamented the public’s flagging confidence in the independence of the judicial branch, a federal judge slammed President Trump for “feeding right into this destructive narrative” with repeated attacks and personal insults toward judges he dislikes.

U.S. District Judge Paul L. Friedman of the District of Columbia said Trump’s rhetoric “violates all recognized democratic norms” during a speech at the annual Judge Thomas A. Flannery Lecture in Washington on Wednesday.

“We are in unchartered territory,” said Friedman, 75, an appointee of President Bill Clinton. “We are witnessing a chief executive who criticizes virtually every judicial decision that doesn’t go his way and denigrates judges who rule against him, sometimes in very personal terms. He seems to view the courts and the justice system as obstacles to be attacked and undermined, not as a coequal branch to be respected even when he disagrees with its decisions.”

The White House did not immediately return a request for comment early Friday on Friedman’s speech
