... just needed to get that out.
Their biggest complaint? The government closed a loophole that allowed these wankers to cheat the government out of millions of dollars. They're greedy cunts, pure and simple and the support they're getting here makes me feel sick.

they show a COPS episode here all the time where a truckie stops for a little "action" When they get him out of the truck he's wearing a long wig, fishnets and a little skirt



I'm sure they're not all like that though. . .

Honestly, the revocation of the 1931 Transport Licencing Act in the 1980s was easily one of the stupidest moves by a Kiwi government ever. It directly led to the privatisation of the railways and was just a general fuck-up all round.

I would entirely support the return of the Licencing Act (i.e. if a rail route is available, trucking cannot legally compete with it beyond a certain distance - which was 150km at the time of revocation), or HUGE petrol taxes for commercial trucking operations to force them to pay for the maintenance of the road network that they use. It is not a level playing field when rail has to maintain all of its own infrastructure while a trucking company just needs to buy a few semi-trailers and can bang the crap out of publicly maintained roads that it doesn't spend a cent to maintain.

Fuck the trucking industry.

God. I am so tired. About to fall asleep here.

I don't even understand what's going on anymore. Something about trucks, and Axver is salivating because he gets to be nerdy.

I can't let this slide.

The freighting industry makes the world go around. Rail, sea, trucking, and air. Each has its own sphere within which it is the most effective and efficient form of transportation. Rail, for example, on bulk land haulage simply cannot be matched, e.g. coal or grain. And for comparatively small time-sensitive cargo such as the mail, air is usually superior by far. However, the trucking industry seems to have a massively inflated ego and thinks that it is the most effective and efficient form of transportation for anything in any sphere and should be subsidised to the tune of billions of taxpayer dollars. This despite the fact that any objective analysis shows that beyond its sphere - which is primarily feeding heavy-haulage rail and shipping networks - it is grossly inefficient and environmentally and socially detrimental.
