In an I Want My MTV spectacular I discuss marriage equality!  Brilliant.  The American Trucking Association has a Women in Motion thing going.  Why is that not a good idea?  Discrimination.  Is old school trucking better?  Yes and no for sure.  The Driveri driver cam is here from Netradyne and it is going to give you a gold star.  SERIOUSLY.  You will coached BY THE CAMERA.  No wonder drivers are quitting trucking.  VinFast is bringing Vietnamese cars to the US.  Not really bring them as much as making them here in the US.  A Reason we are not on Mars.

In a Tony Award worthy episode I discuss why Gracie is not on the show.  I also go over your right to travel, it is not a privilege. The government doesn’t grant you rights, you already have them.  There was another trucking survey and I talk about some of the results.  The Trucking Answers Mark of Excellence is brought up as a way to distinguish the best trucking companies from the rest.  Would you go in a scale and ask them to inspect you so you could get an inspection bonus?  I think that is a silly idea.  Arkansas will begin using the Chevy Tahoe to catch left lane violators.  Ford pulls out of India which isn’t a bad thing, especially for India.  This means no more EcoSport in the US.  Good.  We finally travel to Houston to find out about a couple of gentlemen who just needed to take a selfie and ended up not going to Mars.
