re: Truck drivers - Mid Iowa Tiger
OTR can make some money - 40K or so a year but there is a ton of BS to deal with. Plus most truckers end up fat slobs (just look at a truck stop parking lot). My dad is a semi retired driver still runs OTR at 78 in fact is unloading soy oil in Portland today. He's been at it for a damn long time. ...

re: Houston OT'ers: commute question.... - Mid Iowa Tiger
If your hours are flexible and you can get to the office early or late and leave early or late it might not be too bad. Depending on where in Spring minimum of 40 or so minutes each way. If you have to be there 8-5ish it will be terrible. ...

re: Trump could score a Yuge win today with a no vote - Mid Iowa Tiger
It will be interesting to see what happens between the house vote, the senate, and reconciliation. It could be it passes both chambers but during reconciliation there's not enough done and he is forced to veto it. That would be crazy. ...

re: Slave Reparations from Georgetown University - Mid Iowa Tiger
[quote]Jesus Christ! Why don't you all realize that this is a stupid, insensitive argument? How was coming here as an European immigrant the same as slavery? Were immigrants lynched? Were the killed for knowing how to read? Did they go Jim Crow? The two situations are not the same, get over it. Stop...

re: Dems to filibuster Gorsuch - Mid Iowa Tiger
[quote]Good. Make Republicans use the nuclear option and taint Gorsuch forever.[/quote] Pretty short sighted. Tainted or not his rulings will carry the full weight of the USSC. Now the next justice (if the Rs go nuke) can be as extreme right wing as they want. Then looking at the demographics of ...

re: Checking in from, Donald Trump Rally, Louisville KY - Mid Iowa Tiger
I know others said no but I snuck a regulation baseball into a GWB rally (first term) and was on the rope line. Pulled it out and asked him to sign it. It's in a plexiglass container on my desk near a framed letter from him thanking me for helping him during the transition by driving the press van i...

re: It's my time to go on a rant - medical industry - Mid Iowa Tiger
I have a client company in the EHR (electronic health records) industry. What happened is your doctor witched systems and either went to a system that was unable to take an incoming feed of the basic PT data or more likely the Doc didn't want to pay the extra implementation for his client's conv...

re: There is a new CrossFit doc 'Fittest on Earth: A Decade of Fitness' - Mid Iowa Tiger
I would love to see one of these top guys through Buds or some other rigorous mil training. I am really curious how they would do because they have a certain mental toughness to do what they are doing, but Buds/CC/PJ training adds other elements. A condensed version would be interesting to watch...

Actually. Everyone at ISU knew if the NBA called Fred was going. Most thought we had one, maybe two more years with Fred at most. ...

re: Paul Ryan just now on CNN - "We know Russia meddled in our election" - Mid Iowa Tiger
Russia likely did meddle in the election - much the same way the US meddles in other countries elections. There is a huge leap between that and any connection or leverage on President Trump. ...

re: Fred Hoidberg please! - Mid Iowa Tiger
He is a quality coach and good guy. Creighton "stealing" McDermott was how we got Fred. Interestingly enough Greg was not getting it done at ISU but has been fairly successful at Creighton. Jamie Pollard (AD) went after Fred and Fred alone and was heavily criticized for hiring a head coach f...

re: LSU MBB Candidates? - Mid Iowa Tiger
I did concede the recruiting issue - to a point. Iowa doesn't have the population, but per capital there is a ton of in state talent and in MBB 2-3 studs makes you a tourney team each year. It's not like football where you need 5-6 guys on each side of the ball each year. Iowa State does a v...
