    So there we have it. A SJW admits he is not good enough to stand up for anything other than tit-for-tat

    Ah, what a great week I just had.
    Miss me?

    Which innocent muslims would that be this time?
    Is the BBC yapping about those poor poor fools over in ISIS-land again?

    Oh, must be New Zealand. literally the other end of the world and the most isolated nation on the globe. But.... white people, so you have an ax to grind.

    So, what would be the pro-forma response that would wash us all clean of our sins, in your eyes? And how far will the goal-posts be shifted once full compliance with your Thought-Police has been achieved, eh?
    You'll hate use no matter what we do, and demand more and more and more from anyone that even appears to be meeting your demands.
    As usual.

    So yes, indifference does appear to be exactly the right course of action.
    But I promise to laugh when you guys try to find a way to blame Trump for it.

    I didn't say it was justified. Let's take the discussion on reparations as an example. You and I both know that if reparations were given out today that harassment and violence towards blacks would increase. Why? Because of how displeased people would be over it. While most would express their displeasure in a more civil manner, there will most certainly be those on the fringe who will not. Does that make their actions justified? No. Would you claim that I'm justifying assault against blacks? You wouldn't.

    Acknowledging the reason or motive behind a crime doesn't mean that you're justifying their actions. That much should be obvious.
    I retract my original statement as my opinion on this movement has now changed. Instead, I now feel he deserved it.

    This is rail motor car that carries freight and passengers: one operator and uses light rails or can travel on main routes as well.
    You still end up with the right of way issues for the rail lines and their fixed nature. That is a big negative with any rail system. Delivery vehicles and trucks have the flexibility to operate on roads and varying routes as needed.

    The problems with trains are two fold:

    First, you need tracks. Those get expensive today with land rights and right-of-way issues. Ownership is an additional issue. One company might not agree to use for another company.

    The second is you need bulk goods to make rail lines pay. That is, you need really big loads. Trains are also much heavier and longer than they previously were. It's not untypical to see a modern freight train that's several miles long. It doesn't pay to have a locomotive pulling a few cars when it can pull a hundred plus.

    Big rigs might be good for hauling stuff, but they ruin our highways, especially the secondary roads that are so common in my area, and they break more windshields while they're doing it than they should ever be allowed to get away with.

    Trains are a lot cheaper for hauling mass goods, and they pay for their own right-of-way.

    Leftist views on race usually end up with discrimination and can be dangerous. What's your point?

In case of an LTL the driver often has to be sure that the loads inside are also strapped and secured.

    Often the wait is to get to the dock or loading area where their load can be taken off or put on.

    Have they accounted for different occupations ?

    A truck driver for example will need to take true "breaks" not-driving his truck so to say, while a manager may arrange a 2 hour lunch meeting and register it as work, relax a bit during a boring seminar..or browse the ACG which looks just like working

    Not all "work" is created equal.
