    Nonsense. That's just your paranoia acting up again. You really to get that fixed.

        Sounds perfectly fair to me. Swift shouldn't have been cheating them to begin with.

        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.

          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.

            That's actually old fashioned thinking. You don't even need a locomotive for local deliveries and short range stuff, especially with computers.

            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.

                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.

                  If Trump supporters don't care or are indifferent to innocent Muslims being slaughtered, then why am I obligated to care when one of their own has their tires slashed or is punched in the face... So what.

                    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.

                        You watch too much Stormfront. You know the picture of the shooter and how he looks miserable? That's like you, all wallowing and full of hate. You follow their website too, and The Root. Your future doesn't look pretty right now. The best thing to do is cut out the hateful media, go outside, maybe take a vacation. Do something productive. You'll realize the VAST majority of people are normal...

                          So some one thinking of innocent people being murdered are now SJW. They are not the problem.

                            Conservative views as the following ; January 22 1848 : The conquest of Algeria is an important and fortunate fact for the progress of civilisation .
                            And :
                            Race is a determining factor in historical development .

                            Who was the racist conservative who was saying this ?
