I'm disappointed that Mike didn't even touch the issue of "lease" truckers. those drivers who are classified as owner operators by the company, who entered into one sided contracts where the company has all the leverage abs the driver barely survives after the company takes all the money. the very reason for this bill, and yet Rowe is acting like this is going to put out legitimate owner operator drivers. he has really gone to the dark side.

Yes the right wants to be the ones to indoctrinate kids is because they're the ones that want to teach that you're an individual and that you can succeed and that you should think for yourself

Great interview! Mike Rinder and Leah Remini will ultimately be responsible for bringing down Scientology. Mad respect for Mike Rowe for being one of very few celebrities to expose Scientology as the cult it is.

He never made fun of a disabled person and he wasn't talking about all Mexicans he was talking about the gang bangers that come here illegally

What also just cuts hard is that high school grads can take out HUGE loans for *college* but banks won't budge an inch if those same 17 & 18 year olds (or even adults in their early 20's) want to take out a loan to start a small business. #PersonalExperience
