    The easiest thing with the biggest impact would be to end the Jones Act, but it's never going away. A cargo ship cannot go directly from one US port to another US port unless it is 100% American-built, American-owned, and manned by an American crew flying the American flag. Even Port Amazon would have to follow that rule. Any ship that doesn't have the above qualifications must leave a US port and go to another port that is not the US or one of its territories before then returning to another US port. Not only does this make it absurdly expensive to use our ports for domestic purposes, but it overtaxes trucking.

    The trucking industry is short nearly 6,000 long haulers and over 4,000 LTL drivers since 2018. We do not have the infrastructure to pick up the slack in trucking, which is what the Biden administration wants to do.

    However, the largest supply of trucks and drivers nearby is in Mexico. We're not going to end visa restrictions to let drivers come here under Republicans or Democrats at this point. The USMCA did not make any provisions in general, in a tight spot, or even in an emergency to authorize the trucking companies and drivers Mexico has to offer to help relieve the strain we currently have in moving oil and LNG around the country. (Conversely, Canada actually fasttracked visa applications for this purpose during the pandemic when immigration numbers plummeted.)

    It also doesn't help that our Transportation Secretary has been on parental leave since August when him and his husband adopted two kids.

    I get it. He can have a break. He can do Zoom calls at home. However we currently have had a logisitics issues for quite some time and its simply not a good luck that you are on month 3 of paid paternal leave and an issue is occurring. I mean I can't see the Joints Chief of Staff taking 3 months fro parental leave if there was a foriegn policy issue that may involve our troops.


    Might not fix anything due to the reasons listed above but at leat its good optics. You have one job. Logicistics. Do it or simply resign.

    Yep and that and about 2.00 dollars will buy you a cup of coffee.

    Here is the deal. If there is a problem, fix it. Don't use an excuse to why its happening. Address it. Call me crazy but part of your job is to resolve problems as they come up. Yes sometimes in ones job, a new issue will arise and you need to pivot, come up with ideas, etc and address it.

    I seriously doubt that the Biden economy is the cause of it either. January our unemployment was 6.3% Today its 4.8% That's not that significant of a bump. I have also seen us constantly miss the Admin's employment numbers.

    Do your job Pete.

    All the pent up demand for goods is insane right now.If your new car shopping because your heap blew up your in trouble and used cars are through the roof. Walmarts shelves in the grocery section are looking pretty bad you gotta buy what they have brand wise or starve. Its not 1931 bad not even close but with the pussification of the USA the last 30 years you would think it is. My beef is as always cash is trash as an investment and your forced into equities with dividends for yield many of them leveraged to the max. Then there is this crypto thing which really bothers me and many other conservative investors who are getting older everyday and of course the 30 trillion pound gorilla that never eats less.

    A male Cabinet member who adopted 2 kids. He's taking 3 months off??? A female Cabinet member who suffered through the labor of twins wouldn't need 3 months.

    Yeah thats what I don't understand. Its two dads or two people who identify as gay males who are biologically unable to give birth or whatever "the science" says. They didn't give birth. They didn't suffer post medical issues like recovering from a botched C Section or stiched up hoo hoo. Just two guys who had some babies and yes need to take care of them. Need to adopt to the life change. Need to provide love and support but come on. He is in cabinet position and is responsible for a particular position that is having issues.. Yes I understand he simply can't wave a magic wand and remove said obstacles but do something. You have one of the most impoortant jobs in this country. Act like it.

    3 months off seems to be a bit much. However he did reply its simply due to the robust economy that Biden has created. So I guess this happened during the Clinton turnaround, the Reagan economy, etc I mean unemployment decreated by 1.5% in 10 months.
