I am at a truck stop in western South Dakota.....

I went in to get some something to eat. There a was older couple setting in an rundown older suburban. To me, they like they were homeless and living out of the suburban. The vehicle had Trump stickers all over it. The guy was asking everyone who walked by "do you have a couple of dollars for gas and get something to eat?" I was walking back out to my truck. He asked me and I replied politely "no"! I kept walking and he yells, "hey asshole, I was talking to you". I told him politely again, "no". There was another driver walking behind! I haven't laugh so hard when I heard the other driver say to him "I guess you didn't get Trump's tax cut either?"! As we got to our trucks, I was still laughing and he walked over to my truck. He told me that the guy called him an asshole after he told him no too! I said I needed a good laugh anyway!

As an OTR driver myself, I can tell you exactly why that is the case;

Because I am a member of a profession overwhelmingly populated by morons. You don't have to have any kind of real intellect or intellectual abilities, much less curiosity or any critical thinking skills to be a truck driver. You just don't.

Couple that with endless hours on the road where one constant is the ever present, right-wingnut AM and FM radio personalities constantly telling these poor sods, who by the way, as a group haven't had a raise in over 30 years, that their lot in life is the fault of people who want to spend their taxes on things like health care and feeding poor people, but their troubles can be solved by voting for people who in reality couldn't give two sloppy ****s about them.

But heaven forbid those damned libtards give any of their hard earned money to someone who needs it to survive.

Oh yeah...they are overwhelmingly Christian, as well.

24. 1st post. lurked a long time
I was also otr many years ago. being Jewish I got told at truck stop churches I wasn't welcome. many drivers told me they were national socialist. others spent their down time complaining about every conservative Boogeyman out there. I figured when I made enough money id finish my degree and go into grad school. they all told me that was for loser liberals.

nothing changed over 20 years I see. they are still a miserable lot and I am on a beach in my condo sucking down beer and coconuts living a Jimmy Buffett life in Krabi Thailand.

Lurked a long time but really had to join over this post.

42. I worked my ass off for my dual ba in my mid 20s
then worked twice as hard to get my two Master's Degrees. then lit the candle at both ends. in my 30s. caught the break of my life at 39. now... 41 and I spend my days in either ao Nang, Krabi town, or boating to Phi Phi island to fish or Phuket to watch the fun with my wife.

I earned it. And I recommend people retire here too. 2k usd a month and you live like royalty.

Now you know why he retired to Thailand. His wife is earning the retirement money. LOL

50. Funny, I just came home from Walgreens ... a mentally-ill 24-ish man
he looked SE Asian ... maybe Filipino ... was fumbling through the lighter display and jabbering to himself incessantly and asking my checker how much every lighter was while she was ringing me out ... he put a lighter down on the counter at one point, then went back to searching and jabbering ... I asked her how much, she said 2.99, I gave her the money and said 'just tell him someone bought it for him ... that'll get him out of your hair' ... she was grateful ... I heard her tell him as I was walkin to the door, and she was like 'that guy right there bought this for you, you should thank him!' ... I stopped and looked back ... and he just goes 'oh cool!' ... put it in his pocket ... then went back to looking at the lighters ...

Good Lord.

More at the link. It’s a hoot!

Andnow what really happened.

DUmbass imanamerican63 was at his local truck stop glory hole and accosted a guy for $2 BJ.  The guy told him "NO" and imanamerican63 went on a crazy rant calling him an asshole and Trump supporter.

The. End.
TRUMP 2017-2024 MAGA

And some of you are friends and you're going to call, and you're going to say, 'Mr. President, please, we can't take it anymore, we can't win anymore like this, Mr. President, you're driving us crazy, you're winning too much, please Mr. President, not so much, and I'm going to say I'm sorry, we're going to keep winning because we are going to make America great again."

Meh..I think most of these losers think that anyone less than a socialist preaching professor is a moron.  I saw lots of viewpoints out there. Helped out a militant Palestinian getting backed up once, if you're carrying on like a self absorbed lunatic like these guys are, you're part of the problem

Well, that's an almost Olympic-class conclusion-jump. The dude might've been the kind who has the mechanic skills necessary to maintain what looks like a beater but is actually running quite well.

But stipulating imanamerican63's perception, he exposed how uncompassionate he and some DU-folk are in the face of people with needs; and some DU-folk stated they would be kinder, probably not responses imanamerican63 anticipated.

Here in Silicon Valley, people living out of their car, vans, and motorhomes are not uncommon. Some are druggies not quite at the living under freeway overpasses level. Many are working, but for various reasons cannot afford housing in the SF Bay Area. Several churches in the area have organized together, in coordination with local police departments, a rotating monthly schedule where people can park in the churches' parking lots, have access to restrooms (and sometimes showers), and have access to electrical power. All in an area with some (trained) oversight for safety. My church is one in this organized effort. Police like this, because it's street parking oversight they either do not have to do or ignore (which gets neighborhood residents POed). Many of these are people who are likely to be able to save up the $$ ($4000-$8000!) to eventually be able to rent a place and keep up with the monthly rent.

I've also seen some people living in cars, vans, etc. parking at the periphery of large store parking lots or near a 24 hour gym, where they are members and have access to restrooms and showers.
Facts don't matter to DUpipo

Note to "Warpy": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!
