Keep the crap off the highway.

Yesterday I got a fortune cookie that told me I have a way with
words, and I needed to write a letter. Well, I have just been
too busy to get caught up in the letter mode. But then there
was this thing that has really been bothering me and I am sure
most of you can relate to this.
For the last few years now we have been dealing the military
on the Annette Island project - and that's fine. But when they
bring their dilapidated junk over here and drive down our roads,
that bothers me. I own a commercial truck and I have to follow
all laws and keep my truck up to the most stringent laws created
by the Federal Government. I can get a ticket for a little marker
light out. But the guys that make the laws can drive these older
than I 6x6 Army trucks, screaming down the road. Some with one
head light, unsecured loads, drivers who don't even have C.D.Ls,
I am sure or they would know when your junk of a truck breaks
down in the middle of the road that you need to put out your
safety triangles and flairs. And this makes me upset.
To me if you're making the rules you had better be the ones setting
the examples. Let's keep the crap off the highway. Hire the locals
to move your stuff. If we weren't wasting all the money in a
place were they hate us we could be putting that money into our
Guard so they can get to the places were and when they're really
needed here at home - protecting and serving us the tax payers.
If you're going to get rid
of the cockroaches, you have to exterminate them all. Are we
ready for that? I could have excepted a real accident in the
desert after 9-11, but quit wasting our time and money. Young
lives are just lost for the hopes that Mr. Bush will go down
as the man who destroyed all evil.
Look where I went.
