Just a minor tiff between the establishment and a bunch of wannabe cab drivers right? Wrong!
Uber is challenging the government rape program known as taxi medallions. The chief molestation proponent is the mayor of Calgary, Naheed Nenshi, who flew out of his mom's basement a few years back and grabbed the reins of savage power by pretending to give a shit about people. He chose purple for his color revolution. The Muslim homosexual couldn't be openly pink, but he had to send the secret friend-of-the-rainbow signal somehow. There's votes in them thar colors.
Nenshi quickly proved to be nothing more than another establishment goon consumed with sucking money from Calgarians when they drove, walked their dogs, rented a basement suite etc. If it moves or makes money, extort it or crush it. Taxi extortion made Nenshi scads of cash. It was like prepaid photo radar theft. Uber, on the other hand, is a stealth operation. It could *gasp* make money and not give wads of it to the incompetent crooks at city hall. How could a society function? The politically connected could go without grease this Christmas. Uber is outside the box and had to be crushed.
Safety! The code word for total government control would be used. All Uber drivers would be painted as potential sexual assaulters. Government good, people bad. Threatening the millions of dollars in medallion revenue was a shot across the bow of big government and the government would respond the way all governments do - with force. Uber drivers will be looking at fines and/or prison. The thugs who think that a wealthy government and a subjugated people make for an outstanding society want potential drivers to stay at home on a Friday night and watch Youtubes of the mayor's bullshit speeches, rather than rescuing one of his half frozen, mini-skirt clad victims outside a down town bar trying to hail a cab. She should've worn a snow suit to the bar. Many a desperate lady has taken their chances and climbed into a careening cage of death with a drunk, inhibition diminished, testosterone pumped, brute to unthaw and to possibly make it home unscathed after a night of festivities. Most made it. Some didn't. You don't have to be sick or drunk to vomit when you observe Nenshi attempt to pitch his aid and abetting mayhem as a safety concern.
Nenshi's motives are clear, but where are the dullard police ride alongs who call themselves MADD? Why are they not screaming blue murder for Uber? The number of impaired drivers would diminish substantially if people could get a cheap ride fast with a sober driver. So much for the war on drunk driving. The war on your wallet and your safety seems to be paramount.
The government message is clear: You will freeze to death or drive drunk! You will face armed goons at checkpoints around the city! You will face intimidation, violence, arrest, fines and prison from the safety racketeers. And that's just tier 1. Tier 2 is the bankers who pay for political campaigns and reap the benefits of all traffic charges. A charge of impaired driving will result in you insurance rates rising 300% for many years. Follow the money.
Here's where we get to the real opposition. When government argues for more freezing, more impaired driving and advocates for women climbing into a high risk car, you should look for a banker. Every incumbent or serious contender campaign is bank funded. From Donald Trump, to Harper, to Trudeau to provincial and municipal campaigns, the candidates are muzzled and directed by the banks. Everyone from the U.N. to you, is indebted to them. When some dull city councillor says, "Uber drivers are not insured, so it is a safety (total government) issue." What they mean is if Uber wants to make a buck, it'll pay the bank (insurance company) for the privilege.
Uber, lovers of freedom and you, face a determined, multi-layered and powerful enemy. They don't give a rats ass about the safety of your kids or anyone else. It's time to assign government safety campaigns, the color purple and the banker occupation of our societies to the dustbin of history. Freedom has never been free.
