Comment Re:"Feel forced?" (Score 1) 436

We have already established your a taxi driver that doesn't like the fact you can't over charge and extort your passengers anymore.What is your restriction? having to get a medallion? Ticked off because your in one of the groups that has been buying up all the medallions in NY city then extorting both drivers and passengers? And in many places i have been many of the taxis *are* uber drivers.

But you don't want it to be better for us do you. You want all our fucking money. Well eat shit and die. This certainly has nothing to do with what is good for the public.

The main reason taxis are expensive is local monopolies. Typically the local government has a hand in the pie. It certainly has nothing to do with ensuring good taxi service, that is for sure. The expensive taxis here (about 2-3x as much as uber) provide a all round far worse service. In EVERY single respect.

But, you can't have poor people dying because they can't afford healthcare... and an individual cannot really negotiate with a large corporation - especially when the price for turning down their offer is to die.

In fact from many americains i know. And how the bulk seem to vote and act. It seams the attitude is "fuck the poor, let em die". Even from some of the poor!
