Episode 28: My Declaration of Independence

AUGUST 30, 2018

I got a notification today that Kevin Rutherford had posted on Facebook. I learned that there is a driver's group called United Drivers Association America. One of their "leaders" made a public comment on the regulations.gov website about the proposed changes to the Hours of Service. It's a mess. Bad grammar, incoherent rambling, and no clear and concise point. When Kevin challenged them on the lack of professionalism in their post, he was attacked and blocked. 

Honestly, I really couldn't care less what these people do or believe. It is frustrating that they are going to make a bunch of noise (apparently they plan some sort of rally in DC), but mainly that they will proclaim that they are representing all drivers. I want to be VERY clear that I will not be represented by them. I want absolutely nothing to do with them .

I've included screenshots of the comments made both on the government website and by Kevin. 

After I recorded this episode, Kevin posted screenshots of this idiot defending his bad form by telling everyone that his grammar was so bad because HE WAS TEXTING WHILE DRIVING! 

I don't need the state and neither do you. Your value is based on your experience, your knowledge, your skills, and your work ethic. You don't need to bow on your knees and cry out for relief.
