      You don't know anything about me. You have no idea of my personal level of self-esteem. Granted, it's no where near at the lofty the level of which I am often accused, but it's at a healthy level. EO gives me a participation trophy every month, so that helps.

      I didn't disrespect or bash your character. Other than a breathtaking lack of manners and professionalism, I really don't know a thing about your character. I don't know about "cratiq" since that's not even a word.

      What I do have a need to do, however, is call people out when they attack other members and violate the Code of Conduct, which as others have already pointed out, you continue to do at breakneck speed. My earlier response to you was quite tame, as I was giving you the benefit of the doubt, frankly because you are (or at least claim to be) a former Marine, and I assumed you know how to behave in public. Clearly I was wrong. If you want to offer expediting advice, talk about your recruiting needs, you business model, or anything else expedite related, that will be fine. But make no mistake, if you attack another member, your posting privileges will be limited. How severely limited that may be is up to you.

      It's a tough call, but I'm gonna go with Mr Clean Marine who got his panties in a wad and tossed all civility, professionalism and manners out the window when someone questioned what he was posting and responded by lashing out at those who would dare question you.

      I don't have a problem at all with someone who posts using improper sentence structuring, punctuation or grammatical errors. But when someone attacks a member and attempts to berate them for a lack of intelligent reading comprehension, and does so by using intelligible and incomprehensible prose, that's an irony that I will not let pass by.

      It's a mixed-up, muddled-up, shook-up world
      ...

      On the surface, it looks like a crowded truck, what with 3 people. Looking a little deeper it appears some form of polygamy is at play. Further scrutiny to determine the sex of the person with the husband and wife...

      I believe Transcon experimented with 3 drivers in a truck.
      8 hrs on duty every 24.
      Never ran out of hours.
      I thought of it for secure DOD loads.

      So the owner of a straight truck gets 40% of the pay whats wrong with that he has all the responsibility for the truck engine tires breakdowns exc not including liability.

      Make it 60% if he pays for the fuel. He also would get the fuel surcharge.
