79% Of Truckers Don’t Want To Travel Through Areas That Defund Police. Neither Do I.

I agree with the 79 percent of truckers that don’t want to travel through communities that defund police. Neither do I.

Imagine if you’re a truck driver and having to pull over at night to sleep. Can you imagine how frightening it would be if you couldn’t call for help if something went wrong. Or for that matter, what would happen to you if you tried to defend your self against criminals and in the end were blamed for taking matters into your own hands. It could land you in jail.

It’s a recipe for disaster.

Defunding police is just plain stupid. A civil society needs to be able to protect itself from criminal elements and citizens, particularly the most vulnerable, must be able to rely on their community being protected.

Can you imagine a world in chaos? Wait, yes, I can imagine it and I’ve seen it.

First and foremost, in the war zones I’ve traveled to throughout my career, where the most vulnerable women and children had no one to turn to for help. Secondly, I see it in the craziness of Seattle’s CHAZ (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) where mainly over-privileged American kids, who sleep in their parents’ basements, are angry about their privilege.

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

Published

supply chain

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
