Now is the time for all good boom pump owners to come together. The reason is for simple self-preservation. No talk of brotherhood or Kumbayah prattle, just simple common sense to address a serious problem.

The common problem we are talking of is the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Truck & Bus (on-road) diesel engine rule and how it applies to boom pump owners.

While impatiently waiting for that towering TV talent, Howie Mandell I came across a shouting match with the truth tellers of CNN.
A fellow named Piers Morgan was badgering a "guest," Professor John Lott while shielding U. S. Representative Jerrald Nadler of New York. The subject is not important to the point. The point is how facts are to be ignored when they are inconvenient to the agenda.

In 1970 to the surprise of Western military and intelligence experts China launched their first satellite. As it circled the Earth it broadcast the message, “The East is Red” repeatedly. China is still red but some of that red is red ink. How much and for how long is the question.
