Who the hell does Bush work for, anyhow?
Years ago, I lived in Tucson, AZ for 2 1/2 years. Tucson is heavily populated with Mexicans and only forty or so miles from the Mexican border at Nogales.
In those 2 1/2 years, I suffered more flat tires than in the entire rest of my driving life of over 40 years. The reason? Junk dropped on the road from Mexican pickups and other vehicles.
Understand that in Mexico, the standard items for repairs are a roll of bailing wire, duct tape, and any bolt, screw or nut they can stick in a hole; nevermind whether it's the right thread, the right size, etc.
Quite often, the hammer is the major "technical tool" south of the border. They drive junk down there; bald tires are normal and they drive on them till there is nothing left but air.
Busted tailight? No problem. Just stick a piece of red cellophane over it or leave it unoperative.
Broken headlight? Who needs two when one will do?
Broken spare tire holder on a big rig? Wire it in place with bailing wire. (I personally know of a case, years ago, where an American trucking firm did exactly that. The underslung big rig tire/wheel came loose, fell on the freeway and resulted in the burning deaths of seven people.)
And Bush wants to turn these trucks loose on American highways.
