  1. Remove the ” S ” !!!

    Make it “FREIGHT FUTURE” .

    Why ? Cause that’s what you are ! Drivers YOU are the future of freight ! That doesn’t mean in 5,10,20, or 30 years from now .

    It’s means you’re the future such as in the next minute , hour , day ,week , month , year , and all depending on what you choose to do “will shape it” .

    Trucking has unfortunately became a mirage , an illusion . It’s not what it once was and certainly not what it could be . It has changed for the worst .

    Some of you refer to yesteryear when one upon a time there was camaraderie among drivers . That brings us back into the 70’s !

    While looking back in the 70’s , in 1978 there was a song that was released that became a worldwide hit and success . It’s a bit tacky but the “words” have meaning .

    Perhaps you should listen to it and focus on what the message is . You can perhaps change the title and that one word throughout the song to ” UNITING ” !

    I found an interesting video on youtube where the singer is singing it on July 4th , America’s birthday ! Incredible that he still has the same voice and sound from his youth despite his age .

    This is the title of the youtube video . I’m referring to the first song :
    Frankie Valli July 4th – Grease, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Let’s Hang On

    Replace “Grease” with UNITE / UNITING . Think about the industry , how you’re being treated , what you’re being lead to believe , and what became of it since yesteryear , the lying , deception , exploitation etc . Think about how YOU can change it for the better rather than allow the powers that be continuously destroy this industry of yours at your expense .

    YOU ARE AMERICA ! YOU’RE SUPPOSE TO BE NUMBER 1 ! How can you allow the powers that be do this to YOUR INDUSTRY ?

    I’ll copy and paste the lyrics , however I took the liberty of changing that one word to “UNITING”

    Grease(UNITING)
    Frankie Valli
    I solve my problems and I see the light
    We got a lovin’ thing, we gotta feed it right
    There ain’t no danger we can go too far
    We start believing now that we can be what we are
    UNITING is the word

    They think our love is just a growing pain
    Why don’t they understand, it’s just a crying shame
    Their lips are lying only real is real
    We stop the fight right now, we got to be what we feel
    UNITING is the word

    It’s got groove it’s got meaning
    UNITING is the time, is the place, is the motion
    Now, UNITING is the way we are feeling
    We take the pressure and we throw away
    Conventionality belongs to yesterday
    There is a chance that we can make it so far
    We start believing now but we can be who we are
    UNITING is the word

    It’s got groove it’s got meaning
    UNITING is the time, is the place, is the motion
    Now, UNITING is the way we are feeling
    This is the life of illusion
    Wrapped up in trouble, laced with confusion
    What are we doing here?

    We take the pressure and we throw away
    Conventionality belongs to yesterday
    There is a chance that we can make it so far
    We start believing now that we can be who we are
    UNITING is the word

    It’s got groove it’s got meaning
    Grease is the time, is the place, is the motion
    Now, UNITING is the way we are feeling
    UNITING is the word, it’s the word
    That you heard

    It’s got groove it’s got meaning
    UNITING is the time, is the place, is the motion
    Now, UNITING is the way we are feeling
    UNITING is the word

    In my humble opinion ………..
