This would be a really fun truck to drive. I'd love to see inside the back of it. Speaking of the inside of the back of a nice truck, check out this site.The Daily Rant Scroll down to January 31. This is a pretty cool truck. I would like to congratulate one of our trucking blogging buddies on the 500th post on their blog. If you want to see what it is like on the road as a husband and wife you got to check in and follow Craig & Diane on their trips up and down the West Coast.Diane takes some awesome pictures that I sneak onto this site once in a while.
I would be remiss if I didn't talk about the Magna(New Process Gear) debacle here in Syracuse. We have a relative(Cindy's brother) that works there and has for quite a few years. It is so easy to just read news stories everyday and say to ourselves "that's terrible, good thing it doesn't effect us" Well this time it does sort of. Tom and Sherry are a very giving couple and would probably give you the shirt off of their backs. Unfortunately they are caught up in things out of their control. I hate to see them going through this.
I'm not going to pretend to know the ins and outs of the situation as it relates to contracts and such. All I know is that this is another example of how we all have been affected by allowing our good manufacturing jobs to just sort of sneak out of the country.We have sat around and watched while it happens to other people. Well the other people is "Us" now. When it comes close to home it comes off of the news on TV into your own family. I checked out the Magna web site and they are a huge company. Closing this plant won't even be a blip in their radar. It will be "Syracuse who?"
I'm afraid the only way we are going to get back to having control of our lives is to work for yourself. If you have a skill or a talent try to use it. Years ago a large percentage of Americans had their own businesses now overwhelmingly we depend on someone else for our lively hood.
