This is Bullshit......Your right about one thing Bush and his cronies are out to do away with the middle class....It's all about the money for big business.....

The Clinton administration ran this down our throats(NAFTA)Now the Bush administration is trying to cut our throats.Is the government trying to eliminate the middle class!Hoffa save us.

Well I hope you can live on 11 cents a mile the Mexican co will drive the freight coast in the ground like they did at the west coast ports.The transportation industry as we know it will cease to exist

By Paul M. Krawzak COPLEY NEWS SERVICE 6:14 p.m. August 31, 2007 WASHINGTON – A federal appellate court on Friday refused to temporarily block an administration plan to allow Mexican trucks to roam freely throughout the United States beginning next week. The decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals means nothing stands in the way of plans to begin a controversial pilot program – possibly as early as Thursday – to test the safety of Mexican trucks on U.S. highways. The Teamsters union and several other groups opposed to the border opening filed suit Wednesday to block the program, which the groups claim does not fully comply with congressional requirements. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco disagreed. In a brief order released shortly before the court closed for the Labor Day weekend, a three-judge panel said the request for an emergency motion was denied. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration said earlier this week it expects to open the border to long haul Mexican truck traffic as soon as Thursday.

I have never felt threatened by anything the government dose or did tell now! It is time for Bush to go back to Croffort MY GOD!

Increased competition from Mexican companies means better prices for consumers. Maybe US truckers don't want competition becuase they know that they SUCK??
Welcome to the global market.

Educatedconsumer sounds like ignoranceisbliss. No U.S. trucking company can compete against someone who pays it's employees pennies on the dollar and offers no health care coverage or retirement benefits. Once Americans see these underage, non-experienced drivers bringing these rolling death traps into America, maybe they'll change their minds.

If not, unemployment will skyrocket along with highway fatalities. Too bad non one will have any money to buy the "better priced goods" that you refer to.

Wake up before it's too late!

The 9th Court of Appeals who have had their Communist decisions overturned more than any other court, OKd this travesty against the American people. Now we have to go to the Supreme Court and have these nit wits' decision overturned. Bush has done more harm to American workers than nearly every other president with Clinton a close second by sending our jobs to China. Foreign relations? What about american relations?

Lost my job 2 years ago to big business outsourcing to India and haven't been able to replace it since 90% of all tech jobs are now outsourced. Looks like Hubby will lose his job to Mexican cheap labor. I just have one question. Who is going to buy all the "cheap" mechandise in the stores when we all have gone bankrupt?

What happened to the United States? Deomocracy - of the people, by the people, FOR the people? Thought our president was supposed to represent us. Bush defies all American citizens and Congress and acts like a dictator!

I'm not a trucker, or a member of a Union. But I certainly agree with the Union stand on this Mexican Trucking. We already have too many Wet Backs in this country. They steal and commit all kinds of crime, there is no way to account for them. I don't like this new invasion, not one bit. Whats going to have to happen in this country is a revolution. The current adminstration is soft on the southern border. Hell, you know Bush has Wet Back Bastards working on his ranch. Soon it will be the duty of each individual to repel this brown hord coming from the south. I hope That the teamsters can stop this mass influx of trucks from coming deep into the united states. They might have to take physical action to stop this trucking from happening. This is an invasion of our country! And I consider Bush to be a trater to the American people. "Try him for Teason" I say! That Bill Clinton should also be held accountible for this whole NAFTA crap. This country will soon reach 3rd world status if this government continues to walk on the people. So if you see a Wet Back trucker on the highway, give him the bird. Lock up the brakes in front of him ,yank him out of his truck, and welcome him the American way. Stay south of the border you wet back bastards!

George Bush with his stupid Mexican butt kissing to the President of mexi(can) take our jobs destroy our country bring more MS-13 gangs to kill, sale drugs also the mexican truck drivers will bring more illegal's here so they multiply like roaches then run our hospitals,walefare, and other services down into the ground that we pay for. We need to stand up and raise holy hell and we can win this battle follow this link and call congress now!! http://www.alipac.us/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=63874
We expect these trucks to be loaded with illegal aliens, drugs, and possibly terrorists and terrorism materials. These trucks will be allowed to roll anywhere in America, without being stopped or searched at OUR border!

We need your help and we must act fast!

We need you to immediately start calling as many members of Congress and the US Senate as possible, so start with your own representatives.

We need you to call, e-mail, write, and fax as much as you can!

Here are some sample messages. You will need to craft your own message because bulk messages have less of an impact.

Our battle cry is, "Stop Bush from allowing trucks full of illegal aliens and drugs to roll right into America!"

"I want Congressman/Senator _____ to STOP THE MEXICAN TRUCKS from entering the US, without being checked for illegal aliens, drugs, weapons, or terrorists! Congress must act now to STOP THE TRUCKS!"

Border fences and the Border Patrol will be quickly rendered useless because the drug and alien importing crime cartels will switch from border crossing to trucking.

These trucks will obviously become loaded with illegal aliens and drugs shortly.

Bush made this decision, without asking for approval from Congress!

I demand that Congress take immediate action to suspend the Bush Open Borders Plan, which is part of the SPP mission, to allow these trucks in without being checked.

Also, these trucks will cost American truckers their jobs, lower their wages, and increase risks to American motorists!"

WE MUST FLOOD THE DC OFFICES WITH CALLS ALL WEEK!
CONGRESS HAS RETURNED FROM THE BREAK, NOW LETS HEAT UP THOSE PHONES!

ALIPAC will be calling on our allies for assistance with this effort.

welcome to the NEW WORLD ORDER!!! too late now. America is going bye bye from within. Washington or for that matter all elected officials are the problem, along with the Globilist CEO's of major corporations and banking. Don't forget the wallstreet pin striped bandits, and Gods chosen people , well you get the meaning. The Ameri-dollar is already printed and waiting for the Phony reserve to send it out. It's moving fast now like a freight train with no brakes, I give it less than ten years and you won't have to worry about burning the US flag because it will no longer be. USA is doomed in history like the Roman empire. The world powers will be China,Russia,India, and from what it looks like India, Iran, South America and many small countries with ties to them.

How many more innoncent lives will be lost, due to corporate greed.

For the racists on this site--get a brain. For the others, this is part of the global economy of which the USA provides the foundation. Free trade is not a conduit for terrorists--your own lovely, very white, Tim McVeigh took lives in the name of Klan/Country/God--most terrorists will come through the front door on coach class NOT swim the Rio Grande.

American trucking companies are filled with drug addicts who are also dangerous to the safety and welfare of american citizens. You are missing the point. As citizens, you need to demand such things as universal health care, quality education and fair housing. Through these means you will be able to arm yourself against job loss.

This was bound to happen, not because "big corporations" want to destroy the middle class but because money will always find the most efficient path to profit. You have migrant because locals are either too lazy or unproductive to accomplish the work. American farmers would have no problem paying five times the wage to a neighbor but they would not do five times the work, the migrant workers from mexico do the same if not higher levels of productivity for 20% of the cost of an american worker. If you were in business for yourself you would think the same way.

I'm new here, just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.
