    Coincidentally, one of my friends, who is a retired OTR trucker, posted on his FB about this yesterday too. People he knows who are still working as truckers are complaining about fewer hauls and loss of income. They're all pretty worried. I asked Mr. Owl, who keeps a finger always firmly pressed to the pulse of the U.S. and world economies, about it. He concurred that 1) freight shipping is down drastically, and 2) this is a leading indicator of a coming recession. He already sold off a lot of our stock market investments and put them into other investment vehicles a few months ago.

    The economy is doing quite well you retard. Unemployment is at historic lows. Growth is outpacing Obama's meager performance. All this despite the effect of all of Obama's QE programs no longer priming the economy.

    The Fed potentially cutting rates has more to do with the whining of the big banks. So you support the big banks do you desh?

    Carter left us with a shitty economy, Reagan cleaned it up
    Clinton left Bush with a shitty economy and policies that led to the great recession. Still trying to clean up that mess.

    Obama spent an extra $10T, kept interest rates too low for too long and now we are starting to pay the price.

    Did you know that 1 out of every 10 people in America are truck drivers? Not necessarily BIG RIGS, but including truck delivery drivers of all kinds of trucks.

    And the Truck Driving industry is at the threshold of a Revolutionary technological change- Autonomous commercial vehicles.

    So, most truck drivers are looking at a future career change, and it has also become a hotbed of political debate.

    If you think coal and coal mining is a political hotbed, wait until the first autonomous commercial 18 wheeler becomes available on the market.

    Just wanted to throw that out there!

    The truck will still need a driver in the cab.
