Tom and I have a discussion about Uber and the problems we don't think they can avoid, such as laundry, groceries, and asshole customers. Uber drivers will soon find out that all that glitters is not gold. Vomit on the back seat with Big Mac sauce mixed with French fries is so nice. You drive all night and your cab will smell like sex and livestock. How could Uber avoid this?

George got me this cool covert camera for Christmas to film field work. I can also use it in the taxi because it is hands free. It sort of like a GoPro. I think it has great potential. I only had to spend most of my Xmas day figuring it out.
The original files are not compatible with Windows 10. I had to find an easy way to convert them. Plus, the record light has to pulse when it working and the directions do not tell you that. Lots of bugs, but I think I have it all figured out.

|Sitting at my computer at home|
Resolution is a good thing. And I believe I have crossed some watersheds to get to where I am at now. I have many things going on in my life but the most important was to work on my health. When you are looking at death, that does become your priority.
That situation is improving, and so am I. 2017 should be an awesome year for me on many fronts. That will be great because I can honestly say I have not had an awesome year in the last 8 years. The Obama years were not great for me. Lets just leave it at that.
The time and effort I have put into the workout program I am on has been well worth it. It is finally dialed in and I no longer have to think about what I am doing. Each day is layed out in advance. The reason I am still here today is because I have stayed with this through the swimming and the hone gym training.
Do you know most taxi cab drivers do not live to be 60 years old. There are many reasons for that. The job itself is unhealthy. The food we eat is often fast food. The lack of exercise from just sitting on your ass all day long is a killer. Your joints hurt from poor posture sitting behind the wheel for most of the day. The long hours and lack of sleep do not help as well.
I made it to sixty and have plans for much more.
Just understand, things are about ready to take off.

I'm using a fire hose (heavier than ropes) for Conditioning. I am restoring my health with the exercise and my blood pressure is now 128/70 taken at the doctor's office yesterday. I have also lost 16 lbs since my last visit in August. Remember when I used to wheeze and cough all the time - that was congestive heart failure! I am restoring my health by working out like a CrossFit enthusiast.

Uber is violating the privacy of its customers. We know that many creepy stalkers drive Uber to get close to hot women (something they could never do in their daily life) but Uber itself is spying on its customers. Several former executives have come forward as whistle blowers and what they reveal is stunning. Every American should be outraged at the wanton abuse by this company which is involved in providing meta-data to NSA spying operations. They are Big Brother.

ABC ACTION NEWS is a shill for Uber. At no time in this "demo" part 1 or Part 2 did they show a cab or an Uber car. In fact, they never stated which taxi service they called. Bad journalism. I bet the whole fucking thing was made up to pimp ride share. The service United Cab of Tampa provides is very fast. You could call 911 and we will get there before the police do. I really hate these guys being cheer leaders for ride share. You can see it in their face and body language.
I challenge ABC News Tampa to ride in my car and see how our computer GPS locator dispatch works and how it would be impossible for them to have received the service they just claimed happened. I am waiting for them to contact me. I bet they won't. Perhaps, I will contact this reporter with an invite to ride with me and see how fast my service is. I will not let this go.

|I am a regulated and law enforcement cleared driver|
This note shows who not to vote for in the last election if you believe in regulated business and industry. The politicians that are marked slashed in red are anti-business and they do not support the safety of the general population.
If you notice my hack permit, that means I have been run through the NCIC crime data bank computer to ensure that I am not a dangerous fugitive. The percentage of criminals that drive Uber are very high. That is one of the reasons there are a million people signed up nationwide to driver for
Uber, it is the only job they can get that does not background check. The bitch of it is that the politicians do not support background checks as well.
Even the bitch Dana Young would rather her daughters ride with a child molester then a driver from a regulated company that screens its drivers thru law enforcement.
Oh, it cost me $75 a year to renew my hack permit. This is something Uber drivers do not have to worry about for they have no hack license. They just drive.
I don't know what you do for a living but I am sure there must be some regulations and rules to follow. Imagine a competitor coming in and stealing all your business and they have to credentials, that you are required to have, and just do whatever they want. Imagine the politicians support the renegade operator only because they are afraid of losing votes at the poll. This is just wrong man.

|Albert is a cab driver that follows the rules and pays his insurance, license, and operation fees|
Uber problem in Tampa Bay.....Taxi industry has been under siege since 2007-2008 due to economical collapse of 2008, then surge in new taxi cab start ups between 2010-204 which were still mostly operating according to all the rules and regulations prolonged recovery.
Then uber came around with "great solution" to our transportation problems and said, what regulations, what commercial insurance, what background checks and what cars (we don't need to own any and our drivers don't need to be regulated because we are "rideshare" company), we will invade and steal the market by offering rides at half a price, we will put all those law obeying "taxi cartels" out of business by creating bogus press releases about advantages of uber, by lying to public, drivers and politicians, they don't know any better any ways.
Current situation in result of uber actions,
Taxi market is mostly deregulated, there is oversupply of drivers who struggle to make money, uber drivers bypass uber platform to make extra money, they create gypsy cab companies and advertise on google as legal taxi operators to unaware public, taxi companies are under pressure to keep their cabs rolling, so often they don't require new drivers to pass level 2 background checks because uber doesn't have to do it, most of those start ups from 2010-2014 went rogue and operate without any kind of credentials same like uber drivers operate gypsy cab companies.
THIS IS FUCKING MESS?
By my estimation, 80% of drivers out there operate without commercial insurance or city stickers, 40% of them have criminal record (those good drivers gave up), 10% of drivers are constantly involved in some kind of criminal activity to supplement their income,....

Time for Tampa International Airport to honor their contracts with the taxi industry and shut out Uber.
|We are entering a Neolithic age of capitalism. Oh, that is a Cuban cigar from Havana - against federal law to have one - Screw 'em|
The Tampa Airport Directors of Operations are screwing the local cab drivers up the ass. The local taxi companies have an exclusive contract on "transportation for hire" at the airport. The taxi companies pay $250,000 a year for the right to pick up. (You have to pay to play when it comes to the airport...unless you are Uber or Lyft). Uber pays ZERO $$$. Do you know that? And they are allowed to pick up in the tunnel where we are banned from. In fact, an ADO told me that for every 1 fare we pick up, Uber picks up 11. That is an outrage.
It is time that the drivers protect their own rights and the taxi companies need to support us in this. Let me explain:
The taxi business is not going well in Tampa. It is worse than what is commonly known. If it were not for the Logisticare charges we receive, the taxi companies would be out of business. The number of cash fares have dropped off to a negligible amount that can not sustain a fleet of several hundred taxi cabs. Our last chance was the airport.
It used to be that the days before Thanksgiving were very good for the cab drivers. Wednesday, the average wait was five hours while the Uber drivers swooped in and took our business. They were bragging about it on the local news about making $200 a day this week. I'm telling you, the cab drivers are not making anything. If they are like me, they are behind on their rent, electricity, and other bills..
The coming months are usually the best part of the year at the airport. If the drivers do not make money - THEY WILL BE GONE!!! The cab companies will not be able to get anyone who wants to drive with a daily nut of $130.
The situation is so urgent, I believe both Yellow Cab and United Cab will be out of business by next summer. Without the airport being profitable, the drivers cannot survive..hence, the companies cannot survive.
I am not being over the top with this prediction. It cannot continue at this pace. Something must happen or Uber will have a total monopoly in Tampa. Mr. Mayor and Dana Young, explain how a monopoly in any business benefits the consumer. It does not.
Uber will now be free to charge any price they want and there will be no alternative for the general public. Please consider this as a fact.

I read that there are now over 1 million Uber drivers nationwide. That is an enormous figure. I think the only reason these people get this gig is because there are no jobs in the country that are worth a shit. I think what most of these drivers want is a good job with benefits. Perhaps, if that stuff was out there, the number of dumb shits doing the Uber gig would go way down.
I know the ad says "get your side-hustle on." There is no hustle to what they do. Hustle is what I do on a daily basis to make my money. I have to ad lib the entire day and make opportunities happen. Sorry Uber scum...waiting for a ping is not a "hustle."
Just keep working for your 50 cents a mile in Tampa. That's why you guys won't take anyone out of town because you lose your shirt on the deal. Hustle. That's right. Hustle.

What is not known is that United Cab is tired of this illegal shit - the cowardly commission and politicians - who are shaking in their boots because of Uber. We are not. United Cab has a court hearing next week in which we have filed for an injunctive relief under the fairness clause of the Florida Constitution. Under the current plan, Uber will still not follow the laws and regulations, and they will do what they want. Taxi companies will still have to pay exorbitant fees which Uber is not compelled to pay.
Yes, we did have fun on the camping trip.

While the college student was being sexually assaulted, the student hit the Uber app on her phone and the police now knew the GPS coordinates of her location. What MS. Young did not disclose was that it happened on the UCLA campus and that it was an UBER DRIVER THAT WAS RAPING HER!
"As students prepare to return to college, one thing female students cannot go without is caution.
Assaults, especially sexual assaults, are a haunting part of daily life for so many students. Uber has made that nightmare even more of a reality.
We tell our students that getting a driver when they’ve had too much to drink is the responsible course of action — it’s safer. But what happens when Uber drivers take advantage of that false sense of security?
Here are the worst examples of the drivers who have preyed on students:

Dana Young had to have known that fact. That makes Dana Young either stupid or a God Damn liar. I choose to believe she is a liar on the level of Hillary Clinton. It's as simple as that.
The reason I hate her is because she wants to kill off my industry and others by deregulating everything. Only her rich friends are down with that. (Google how much money her and hubby have made since she entered politics...sound familiar?)
I interrupted Dana Young because I knew the truth behind the story. She seemed annoyed that someone would challenge her.
If you don't believe me Dana, check out the link I provide and stop lying about the safety of women. I see on your ads on TV that you have two daughters. Perhaps you should consider having Uber drivers fingerprinted and background checked like the HCPTC wants and YOU OPPOSE!!.
People in Tampa Bay do not vote for this ignorant piece of white trash lying bitch!

Orwell's posters are gas lighting tactics used by the intolerant left to make you think what you know is real is not. They want you to reject what all the great thinkers for two thousands years have agreed on. Our history is going.
The posters are being removed like Buddha's in the Afghanistan desert, The weapons of conquest are not simply bullets and bombs. Rework prejudice, and hate against once eternal standards and you have weapons more powerful than nuclear energy because they are now found only in the minds of men.
The omnipotent is now man, not a natural law allowing man determination. We are moving closer to jail. The free thinkers (conservatives) are now "the cool kids." They say bad words. They are free to be afraid. Those that were once cool, need to follow a rule book to stick their finger in a girls pussy. While hoping they don't use misogynist terms.
Political correctness is all about mind control. It is fascist. Conservatives are now the ones that don't give a fuck. Just look at Donald Trump.

This was a post I did and I think it brings up an interesting point of vice being under the nose of a news channel.
"My brother believes blogs are more democratic than traditional media because they are not controlled by the media conglomerates. Hence, are more reflective of the public at large.
I don't know about that but I do know I can be places the average person cannot, or would not want to be. This is why I always carry my camera with a zoom lense with me.

If you know you are going to die, would you continue to play it safe? Would you just give in? There is another course. You could start doing what you wanted to do all along. Follow your dreams and not let death get the best of you. Knowing you are mortal has been a limiting force to so many. Jump out of the way of bulls. The first to pull the parachute cord. Always taking the perceived easy way out. Death wont' do that to me anymore. With my luck, I'll make it. The first 60 years have been a ride. I am looking forward to the next 60. I have so much to do. Death will not take that from me. Fuck you death.

As a taxi driver, I am in a unique position to do an unscientific survey of the area. I go into the poor, middle, and rich areas, and I have yet to see a Hillary yard sign. Have you? I see Trump stuff everywhere. I'm not kidding about the Hillary signs. I drive all day and cannot even find a Hillary bumper sticker. Can you?
I think this is part of the media plan. By lying about the polls, they are hoping that Trump voters will stay home on election day. That is why we need to remain vigilant and show up in giant numbers will. I know the truth will eventually come out.

The major reason for this is Uber. They have cherry picked all the good business and left us with poor people at laundry mats and grocery stores, going around the corner for 3-4 dollars. You can't make it on that. When I was a real cab driver, each day was an adventure. I got to pick up all kinds of people and see the world thru their eyes. It was actually fun.
When I was in the newspaper business, I had to arrive when they wanted me to. I had to work the days they made me work. I could only make the income they dictated I would make. I was actually glad when my department was downsized out of existence for I could now take off in the direction I was meant to go. Since I knew I wanted to be self employed, I became a cab driver. The customers are now your boss but at least I did not have some dickhead leaning over my shoulder all day long.
Uber has kicked all this to the curb. I am now following a ridged schedule of picking up medical charges. My day is laid out in advance and I don't have much choice in the situation. The irony is I'm making a more consistent income which I need right now. At my station in life right now, I would not be able to handle the uncertainty of trying to live only off street calls. You could do it but you would have to work 'round the clock. I'm too old for that and I don't have the inclination anyway.
The rule of the jungle is adapt or parish. Since I have no interest of perishing professionally or otherwise, I adapted. I don't like change but had no choice. I would be under now if I had continued in the same path. All of this because of Uber.
How an unregulated company can be allowed to operate without following any requirements by the oversight commissions is something I did not think I would ever see. The politicians are cowards. Uber is so popular among the young people, they are afraid they will be voted out of office.
I have seen them in action they are cunts. They are weak-kneed jelly fish. Donald Trump says are leaders are stupid. I don't know about that but they sure have no backbone and no concept of upholding the law. One senator for the Tampa area said he would be afraid to answer the phone in his office if he did anything to stop Uber. He lacks balls. No doubt. I could do a better job then he does.
When I was young I used to believe the politicians were smarter then me. That they could be trusted to make the right decisions that would benefit my life. Boy how wrong was I.
Anyway, Island Time is good. I am now home each night at 5:30 which is BEER THIRTY. Not everything is bad. In fact, its better right now then ten years ago. Life moves on.

I want to get out of this town so bad. This is taxi driver from Las Vegas doing a comedy stand up routine. He's trying. We had a group of cab drivers leave a few years ago to do stand up comedy. One of them was a Pakistani dude that did dot head jokes, and another guy called "The Fat Bastard." I have no idea what happened to them.
The Juggling Taxi Cowboy is a star and was even on the TV show America's Got Talent. There is hope. There is hope beyond Uber.
