    Trucker is like redneck. Some people get offended while others wear it as a badge.

    I know a couple of truck drivers who refer to themselves as Truckers.

    Guess it depends on the person

    Just like OWS the only thing this will do is make people pissed off at the protesters.
    Were sit-ins assinine?

    Whether one agrees with this story, of a tiny minority of individuals doing something the OP would vilify them for if they were left wing... to attack truckers in general is idiotic and just plain wrong.
    Neither of which changes my basic point. Truckers don't have to be very smart and they get paid well. Or have I misjudged the average trucker and in point of fact they are all Rhodes Scholars who haul goods purely because of their generous nature?

    They'll be arrested, their trucks will be impounded, then they'll do an interview on Fox News, and that will be the end of that. A few may lose their trucks if they can't afford the impound and towing fees.

    I see this as a measure of how far the right-wing propaganda engine has pushed people. These people have been getting viciously manipulated few years without any break. They're all about ready to pop. And the propagandists have shown no signs of slowing down before they get a lot of people hurt.
