You're right, they are connected. In our economy, people need to go places and services exist to serve them. Cities decided there were "too many cars" and established medallions/licenses to create artificial scarcity. So the market sensed the damage, and routed around it. Now it's even messier, isn't it? It's almost as if it's more complex than the enlightened socialists would claim. Perhaps they should take their arrogance and shove it up their posteriors, and let the adults clean up their mess.

Why don't you skip a few steps, have the government buy Uber, and then you control their wages directly? I'm sure that will work perfectly.

I mean, since you believe you, the government, are entitled to dictate to everyone how they will live, why not keep it simple, and make them work for you? Then there is no guesswork.

I think you have some valid points, but you'll have to speak up. I couldn't hear your insights over the racket of all the command economists' necks snapping as they flipped from criticizing Uber drivers from stealing taxi drivers' business to pitying Uber drivers for having a poor quality of life.

Well, if you'll note the information given IN THE SUMMARY, it does hold in a federal investigation. The reason is because someone could be looking for "legit" porn and stumble across the kiddie porn. I'd say the fact this image was in his trash is pretty strong evidence for that.

Nader is a selfish cock whose data on the Corvair suspension issue was obsolete, as it had already been fixed for the 1965 model year. Instead of correcting his book before publishing it, he put it on the market to quickly collect his profit and contributed to the failure of the (now much safer) Corvair and probably causing many people to lose their jobs.

You haven't heard about the FM radio spectrum spring cleaning?

FM Cleaning


*** Attention ***

It's that time again! As many of you know, each year FM radio must be shut down for 24 hours in order to allow us to clean it. The cleaning process, which eliminates dead left-wing talk radio and inactive top 40, classic rock, and adult contemporary stations, allows for a better-working and faster FM.

This year, the cleaning process will take place from 23:59 pm (GMT) on March 31st until 00:01 am (GMT) on April 2nd. During that 24-hour period, five powerful FM radio-crawling robots situated around the world will search the FM radio and delete any data that they find.

In order to protect your valuable data from deletion we ask that you do the following:
1. Disconnect all terminals and local area networks from their FM radio connections.
2. Shut down all FM radio servers, or disconnect them from the FM radio.
3. Disconnect all disks and hardrives from any connections to the FM radio.
4. Refrain from connecting any computer to the FM radio in any way.
We understand the inconvenience that this may cause some FM radio users, and we apologize. However, we are certain that any inconveniences will be more than made up for by the increased speed and efficiency of the FM radio, once it has been cleared of electronic flotsam and jetsam.

We thank you for your cooperation.
