    Texas, three more states on California’s banned travel list
    California is restricting publicly funded travel to four more states because of recent laws that leaders here view as discriminatory against gay and transgender people. All totaled, California now bans most state-funded travel to eight states. The new additions to California’s restricted travel list are Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and South Dakota. They join Kansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Tennessee as states already subjected to the ban.

    Good that covers most of my favorite states, the fewer Californians there the better. I still think Trump’s fence should include California to keep the crazy contained.

    Control trucking – Control us

    On SteveQuayledot com alerts

    Control trucking, you control every part of this country, and as 1/5th of the GDP, the economy of every part of this country. WARNING AND HEADS UP ON COMING DICTATORIAL AND TOTAL CONTROL OF OVER THE ROAD TRUCKING, MONITORED IN REAL TIME-

    Steve, thought your readers would like to know about this. Trucking as a whole is a mess, but about to get really bad. On dec 18 2017 a mandate goes into effect called the ELD or electronic logging device mandate. Put together under the Map21 plan. Doesnt sound bad, we all go paperless, woohoo.
    Well there is more to it. Today I spoke with a fmcsa enforcement agent, asking some questions, he boldly stated that this “was about tracking”, and pointed me to some info. As an owner I have been looking into this more deeply. This mandate, requires all trucks, with only 4 clear exceptions, to install a device to electronically keep drivers hours of service. The scary part is, this device Must be certified by fmcsa, Must be registered with fmcsa, Must be hard wired into the trucks ECM ( engine computer) allowing access to telemetry, Must have internal GPS, Must identify driver and his/her last 7 days + current days hours of service including shipper and commodity and Must be accessible on demand by fmcsa agents by telmetrics or bluetooth. Plus more.
    In other words, they will be electronically tracking every truck. Knowing company, unit, driver, location, speed, direction, shipper, and commodity, In Real Time
    All this to keep us from “cheating” on our logs?
    I call BS.
    I said before, trucks are the red blood cells of the american body, everthing moves by truck, Everything. Control trucking, you control every part of this country, and as 1/5th of the GDP, the economy of every part of this country.
    The government will have absolute tyranical control of the transport of goods when this kicks in. And it is going to have an affect on everyone, access to goods, prices, ect.
    They got control of banking, healthcare, now the supply lines, whats next?
    Prep now, why you can.
    Good luck to you all, and God bless

      Werner was using it back in the “oughts”, their drivers I talked to liked it, said it was a lot less headache for them.

    • almost there,
      thanks for the heads up.
      think of the extenuating factors. easier for drivers but total control is just a click away.
      trucks bring medicine food, water and supply the remote parts of our country, too.
      if you are someone’s political enemy and you need insulin–the delivery is mysteriously delayed to your area.
      it doesn’t matter to the evil doer behind the delay that hundreds of other diabetics may die along with the political opponent because he has rid himself of opposition.
      just the tip of one of several icebergs.

    Dems lose again*/Article_2017-06-21-US–House%20Election-Georgia/id-51f583b53fa74b16a4478847dc5ba35b

    Still a slim margin, too slim to call a great victory. Wonder who the Dems will blame this time with the failed state of Illinois providing a graphic example of Dem leadership at it’s finest.

    Illinois Liberal and fanatic Sanders supporter James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois shoots Rep. Scalise, an aide and two cops at Congressional baseball practice this morning before being shot to death himself. Leftist twitter celebrates. The good guys are all expected to recover. Just go to Drudge for details it’s all over the page.

    At least Sanders had the decency to disavow this scumbag’s actions.

    • Almost There says:


      I always wonder why they say someone will recover… Yeah, maybe physically, but people forget about the mental anguish and damage this does, most likely lasting a lifetime. PTSD is in order… Sad.

    Press and hold the Ctrl key and hit the End key and you go straight to the bottom of any page. Ctrl and Home takes you to the top of any page in a similar manner

    After the first time you fill in the boxes when you close the page tab and then come back later just type the first letter of your email in the email box and it shows up as a clickable choice in a drop down. Same thing in the name box. Until you close the browser when it resets, assuming you have it set to wipe all cookies, forms and such at closing. Then you have have to type it in again.

      Any chance of getting the comment box to the top so we don’t have to scroll to the bottom.

      And I have to keep putting in my email address and name each time. Can it save it from previous posting to this section?

      • Almost There,

        I don’t know of a way to move the comment form to the top – I could go back to the WordPress commenting system and that might allow your email to appear automatically.

        • Almost There says:

          Maybe that would help. No matter how many times I post, I still have to put in my info every time. I don’t have it set to delete on exit….

        • Almost There says:

          Also, when I post, it totally refreshes the screen… And doesn’t come back to where I was like the blog does when you post. it getting a little frustrating…
