As Dr Seuss says oh the things you will see

Well my freinds this is a crazy and screwed up world we live in . And as i spend my working life as a long haul driver i get to see a side of the world most of you cant see. I see all the citys in North America from the back side. Not the pretty side you see on tv but the real city hiding in the back streets and industrial parks. The true underbelly of the place what i like to call the swub. That means the soft white underbelly. So come along and see our world and the many characters that are hiding in plain site on your highways and roads. my fellow drivers and the supporting staff that keeps them going.

The farm report, Jesus and Ontario

I will warn you in advance that this one is going to go all over the place. There is much on my mind today and I need to release the pressure or I may snap. I will start with Jesus and cattle. You may ask what in the world do these seemingly unrelated things have in common. Well my Friends let me enlighten you they are the state of radio in North America. Yep cattle and Christ dominate the airways. I recently stopped getting Sirius satellite radio after five years and have had to go back to AM, FM radio and depending where you are in the continent you have your choice of cattle or Christ I now know the price of every domestically raised animal and grain thanks to the farm report. If you need to know the state of the soybean market I am know your man. And my soul is closer to salvation than it has ever been Jesus dominates the low end of the FM spectrum But He also appears in the top too so beware He is everywhere. I have no problem with religion of any kind but if I am driving twelve hours a day it gets a little trying. Man do I miss satellite radio.
And now on to Ontario I am going to start a campaign to slice this province into half. No province should be 1300 miles to drive thru that's 2100 km for you metric folks out there.And that's all two lane roads heading from Ottawa to Manitoba 1200 frigging miles of two lane roads.Oh it has the lofty title of THE TRANS CANADA HIGHWAY but don't you believe it it should be called the washboard kidney killing trail! It would be a great place for truck makers to destruction test their vehicles to see what kind of component life they should expect out of their products. Because if there is a design flaw highway 11 and 17 will find it. So my idea is simple seeing as Ontario is so large we cut it in half and name the top part Bob. Bob will give us a sense of accomplishment that we have made it thru Ontario and we are making progress. And Bob being its own province it will free up government resources that currently naval gazing Ontario (Toronto) spend mostly in the south. So think my idea over it makes a lot of sense and it would give us a new province to boot that should liven up the Parliament. i will bet Bob and the old Ontario don't vote the same party line anyways.
