FMCSA Administrator John Hill rebutts the rants of Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa

We all know the controversial Mexican Cross Border Program was extended for two more years on August 8, under Federal guidelines concerning Pilot Programs, and as we reported, Jimmy Hoffa immediately showed his no class ignorance by continuing his boring mantra about those unsafe, dangerous and illegal Mexican trucks, a notion we have continually disproved

San Antonio Express News Editorial – U.S. should honor trucking provision

The Senate and the House approved the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1993. If a nation decides to withdraw from NAFTA, the agreement specifies a six-month notification process. A president, with the support of Congress, can initiate this process. And a president, with the support of Congress, can attempt to renegotiate NAFTA. What a

Second Amendment, Truckers, Neo Cons and Hate!

With all the vitriolic hatred being thrown about against Mexicans, whether legal or illegal and the celebration of the recent Supreme Court ruling concerning the Second Amendment and the NRA’s stated goal of unrestricted gun ownership, once again violence has been visited upon innocents.

I happened to tune in to the show this afternoon about 4:55 (EST) to hear Dale Sommers begin his rant about the [cref 4-dead-on-international-bridge-connecting-reynosa-pharr accident on the Pharr-Reynosa bridge.] And as usual, not wanting to let the facts interfere with his warped and prejudiced opinion against anything Mexican, he let us all

Looking back on 2007 and ahead to 2008

What a year 2007 was. The war in Iraq continued and the casualty count is now well over three thousand and for what? To allow KBR civilian contractors and others to get rich scamming the government as those who were recently indicted in Afghanistan have shown us. Blackwater security employees used Iraq as their personal

It’s hard to stop a moving train and the Mexican Demonstration program is barreling ahead balls to the wall!
