Trucks: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)
We are not enamoured of John Oliver, nor for that matter, of any other establishment, pro-imperialist "comedian". We know damn well that when push comes to shove, or even long before that, they will be out there doing the devil's work, as turncoats like Steven Colbert so amply prove. BUT, there are no absolutes, folks, so we must recognise degrees of collaboration with a rotten status quo. In the case of Oliver, while he is firmly part of the imperialist media establishment, something in his persona leans toward the populist, hence he often features segments that, while not perfect from, say, a Marxist viewpoint (like all liberals Oliver is good at enumerating in vivid color the symptoms of capitalism but never mentions the disease), are still a contribution to educating his usually clueless audience about problems that clamor for some sort of solution. This is certainly the case with this segment on truckers, extremely hardworking people, and for that, we give him credit. —The Editor

^3000US citizens have no real political representation.
We don't live in a democracy. And our freedom is disappearing fast.
I don't want to be ruled by hypocrites, whores, and war criminals.
What about you? Time to push back against the corporate oligarchy.
And its multitude of minions and lackeys.
