Look, the guy can’t put anyone’s name in that block unless they have a Commercial Drivers License, current CDL Physical, and hours available to drive. Religion has nothing to do with it.

The reason he can’t put “Jesus” in the co-driver space is that it indicates there are actually 2 drivers in the truck which allows it to drive for a period of 20 hours. You have any idea how many drivers named Jesus there actually are in the USA? I had 2 over the course of 15 years.
They probably should have gone with that: Your log looks as if you had your good buddy Hey-Zeus along with you.
"We can't have that and we can't have any suggestion that the log books are falsified."
This could be the making of a really good lifetime movie (or country song), before it became all murder, sex, and shock value.
Truck driver has some guy along with him that turns out to be Jesus the Philosopher from Nazareth. They talk, he teaches some lessons along the route about right and wrong. At the end he feels he would be lying if he left the co-driver blank because Jesus actually takes the wheel a few times. His bosses don't believe him and fire him.. just when he is about to lose his faith again, he finds his gift for preaching and becomes the preacher at a local church.. after a mysterious visit from some middle eastern Jewish guy with a funny accent.
Probably too cheesy and too much Bhagavad Gita. (For those that don't know, the story behind the Gita is that Lord Ajuna's chariot driver ends up being Lord Krishna the avatar of the God Visnu)
Cavallo, good story. Although I do have to point out that you fumbled the trucker theme in the end. He could be the "Truck Stop Preacher" driving his bigrig from truck stop to truck stop. Delivering the word of the Lord to truckers across the country. I can picture the mobile chirch built into the trailer he would tow. And the podium would have to be fashioned frome the grill of a semi. Possibly a peterbuilt changed to a jesusbuilt.
That's actually not true. There isn't anybody out there named "Jesus".
The correct spelling is Jesús with an accent mark over the letter U. Without the accent mark, it's talking about Jesus Christ, or "Jesucristo". The only person you've ever met named Jesus is the guy from Nazareth who lives in your heart.
Also, most people named Jesús go by "Chuy".
I have several baseball cards of players named Jesus (e.g., Jesus Alou), and there’s no accent mark over their name.
To avoid confusion, I suppose he could have put "Jesus Christ." He should consider suing that company for discriminatory termination.
As long as he doesn't have a second log book and can account for the hours that he has shown in his log book, there is no violation.
11 hours of driving for OTR drivers.
@ Cavallo Sounds like it could be the sequel to Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
NoSam, it should be called The Church Peter Built.
Cavallo - remember Michael Landon's show Highway to Heaven? Fits the bill pretty closely.
Could have avoided that had he been more specific. I know there are many Latinos with the first name of "Jesus", but none that I know of that are named Jesus Christ.
Exactly, Many Mexicans have that as their actual names.
I agree with you but, this was a chicken shit reason for dismissing the driver, of course I don't know the whole story.
Maybe he ought to have put quotation marks, and added "my Savior", just for clarification purposes. There are Christian-based companies that, I am sure, would love to have this man as one of their drivers.

Now I had now idea anyone had confidence in Judges. In my personal experience, 1 in 10 with integrity. Considering I worked within the legal system for a time, that’s pretty sad. I’ve heard Judges reply to attorney’s “That’s why I have malpractice insurance!” When told they aren’t legally allowed to do something. Oh yeah! Kool Aid!

Look on fec.gov. Lynch is responsible for prosecuting a Republican Cong for campaign fraud (to wit: exceeding the max campaign amount.) Now look at her donations. See a similarity? yeah. of course.

How much is it worth to keep these guys locked up? Seriously? It was a stupid idea. Shouldn’t have been done, ever. Anyone with a brain knows you ask the questions you need answered before they get shot trying to escape. Does anyone really think it’s worth $1.5 Billion Dollars to keep these jokers alive? That’s what we’ve spent since 2002 as a minimum. Ridiculous waste of money.
Look how many billions were spent to have new career politicians put into power.
In the scheme of wasting money not so much. Consider QEing to the tune of 3 trillion and 1.5 billion is a flea speck. Also the 3 trillion was all "printed" $. When inflation hits and the market tanks after it's proposed run-up, hold on to your socks!

I was given a ticket for speeding by an Illinois State Trooper who was over 6′ tall coming home from work one night as I was being passed by 5 cars. When I went to court, The Trooper who showed up was maybe 5’2″. I told the judge, “This isn’t the guy that gave me the ticket.” She looked at him and asked, “Do you remember giving him the ticket?” Trooper looks down, “It was 12:30 a.m. on 294,…” She cuts him off and says, “In my chambers.” She then asks me, “Were you speeding?” I said, “Yes ma’am, 65.” She said, “35$.” I said, “You have no proof!” She said, “You said you were speeding, in the future, say NO”. Then she called the next set of tickets, Same Trooper stands up for a different name. She dismisses all tickets. Calls the Prosecutor and all the Troopers into her chambers. What a day.

Here it is, 13 years later. I thought I would be over this by now. It still pisses me off. I remember the lives of those lost that day and since, and my eyes water. I never thought I would miss GWB. But there you go.

Curious Fletch. Nearing midnight, you are approaching an overpass on your way home after working a double shift, you have to come this way to get home, Some idiot Shines a BRIGHT LIGHT in your eyes and you swerve into oncoming traffic, killing yourself and a carload of honor students because the POLICE didn’t stop the idiot from shining a bright light at traffic in the dark. Now what do you think?

firstname.lastname@example.org used to mean federation of ******* gamers.com until someone took offense, and had the domain deleted. fyi. could have been an old gamer, hell, i’ve been gaming since the 70′s and fall into that category. My theory (which no one ever asks about,) is GROW UP!

Sorry, what he is saying is that they knew were he would be for a certain period of time and the only means of sure death were airstrike and bomb, with collateral damage. You know what real “Evil” is? When you do something you know is wrong to achieve a good end.

So Tom, when will you be quitting the Warner Bros label? You know they use “child slave labor” to produce the chocolate for their Harry Potter line, right? What kind of crite was that,,,oh yeah, a hypo-crite. got it.

two rows of hills 2 ft high, 3 feet apart. You can collect the cars, trucks, humvee’s in the morning. And that sir, is why Physics rules….unless they’re running tracked vehicles, you should be good.

religion isn’t a democracy, it’s a collection of beliefs. I’m curious what made you think it was a democracy?
“quietly voted” out by the General Synod, the denomination’s legislative body, according to Religion News Service.
I've never voted in my beliefs or had a legislative body vote them in for me.

His name is actually “Lucifer” and yep. Not my job to convince you, that’s your job. Have fun!

Get over it! How do you think we replaced “Gus Savage” in the 2nd Congressional District? My father was a Democratic Ward Supervisor that came up with the plan that helped Republicans to finally get the racist, rapist thrown out of office. BTW, when you hear the term “Conservative Democrat”, they were talking about my old man.

OK, nobody else posted it. Guess who shouldn’t be driving? I’ve got a neighbor like that.

That’s when you ask the teacher, “If I poke you in the eye with 1 finger, and you poke me in the eye with zero fingers, how many eyes will each of us have open?”

A little research would show you there’s a male role model in the house. As for “Rainbow Dash”, any COD (Call of Duty) player would tell you that’s a popular name for really stellar players.

Look, I don’t think Danica is that great a driver either. Now if my Mom had been driving against these drivers at her prime? Shoot, they would have been wall-banged, and not in that nice way. In the, “get the hell out of my way” way. LOL Dad used to say only low flying 747′s went faster. She drove Mobile, Al to Chicago in 8 hours in 1969. That 68 Mercury Comet was a blur.
