Delirium CD cover
My collection of New Age music continues with Delirium introducing the west to Persian Gothic music. I am envious if you are hearing this for the first time.

I am really glad to be in a better living situation. I new 2016 would be a good year for me. With my improved work conditions, apartment, workouts, its going great.

My Place

The duck says hello
This is my crib in Clearwater. I have the basics covered, table and chairs, pots & pans, bed, chest of drawers, and so forth. My sister in law sent me pillows, blankets, towels, bowls, years ago. I can now use them. It is my home and I am happy here. I'm starting over People have done that before.

The seeds are starting to grow


I plants seem to be on their way. I may have a green thumb after all. The trick is relying on rain and not letting your plants drown.

"Shu" has passed away

Billy Shuman 2005
Long time dispatcher and driver for United Cab of Tampa Billy Shuman has passed away. He was the last of a vanishing breed of cowboy dispatchers that could pitch 200 calls an hour and laugh at ya' while he did it. They are all gone now, Pirate, Sleepy, Justin, Shu. They were a group of guys from an era that will never be seen again. Sadly.

Shu was the ultimate cab driver and dispatcher. He had a real tolerance for the job and I never saw him lose his cool. If you backed me in a corner, I would have to say Shu was the best dispatcher we ever had.

He never got so wrapped up in the job that he did not enjoy life. He was a season ticket holder for the Bucs during the glory years. Because of Shu, I was able to attend many games and watched the Super Bowl Bucs play live. I will never forget that. Shu also loved animals. He fed every animal he ever saw. In fact, there was a great blue heron named Buddy that he fed in the backyard of his house on the Hillsborough River for 12 years until the bird just disappeared. He even carried a bag of cat food in the trunk of his car in case he saw a feral cat.

The birds loved Shu
In the twenty one years I have been a cab driver I have seen so many drivers pass away. I think there are only three guys that have been here longer than me. Two now. Shu was one of them.

New Location

My new cool blog works great
You can find Tampa Taxi Shots blog now at CigarCityCabbie.com which does not have the link and software issues this one does. In fact, I like the name better and I have the Dot Com. It really pisses me off that Go Daddy wants $2,500 for the Dot Com to Tampa Taxi Shots. Eat shit.

Strange abadoned buildings in south St. Petersburg

Abandoned building in south St. Petersburg
I have started a new business of running medical charges. My activity is all in St. Petersburg and my first two days have been a resounding success. Since I am new to this area, I did notice some abandoned buildings with a theme graffiti. I have no idea what those buildings were (except the bank) but the birds and the word loser are on two of them. A customer of mine said they may have been the old welfare buildings. Not sure.

Marco Rubio lost because of his anti job stance - UNREGULATED CAPITALISM

This man was bought off by globalist and venture capital that does not care about labor
"Sen. Marco Rubio was looking to score a quick ride in Miami, but when he tapped his white Uber button on his smartphone, the Florida Republican came up empty. “I was bragging to someone about this service in Washington and I clicked onto my app … and up comes a message saying, ‘Sorry we can’t pick you up in Miami because the county commission won’t allow it,’” he recalled.

 That incident was the impetus for Rubio's Monday visit to Uber’s Washington headquarters, where he used the struggle of a growing and fashionable tech company to underscore his case concerning overburdensome regulations.

“We should never allow government power and government regulations to be used to protect an establishment incumbent industry at the expense of an innovative competitor,” he said. Operating in 37 U.S. cities, Uber is a transportation company that allows a customer to order a taxi, town car or SUV to a specific location with just a click of a phone app. All transactions are paperless and tips are included in the fee. The service quickly gained popularity in Washington due to frustration with the lack of available cabs in certain parts of the city and the inability to pay with credit or debit cards."

NOTE: Rubio is wrong because Uber and lift services DO NOT serve the BLACK and poor SPANISH areas (He betrays his own people). Poor people don't have credit cards Rubio. They rely on free money orders from Amscot to pay their bills. Regulatory agencies PROTECT THE POPULATION FROM CRIMINAL DRIVERS. It is a public safety issue. All taxi and limo drivers in Tampa must be cleared by an FBI background check. Your method gets around that. Would you want your wife picked up by a Rapist?

A green thumb?

On my front porch
I've never planted a damn thing in my life. Since Uber will become a legal operation on Wednesday, I thought I would do something to memorialize what I've done for the last 20 years. I put some seeds in the potting soil to make it grow. The plants have flowers and are called Cosmos. They are supposed to grow to about 4 feet tall and the flowers are multi colored. I hope they look sort of like the wild flowers of Texas. Perhaps after the backyard becomes full of them.

Its nice to have a front porch and a backyard. That is something I have been reaching for all along. Only in a metaphorical way. Like dreams that will never come true. Maybe.

Keep in mind, Uber/Lyft may become legal but they will not be regulated. The fact that we will have to charge a higher price mandated by law gives them an unfair competitive advantage. This is something our Idiot politicians are unable to see. No wonder I voted for Donald Trump. He was right when he said politicians are stupid. I would add fools. Victor Crist?

Anyway, I may have a green thumb and not even know it. If this is successful, it could lead to something else. Perhaps I could become a crop sharer. Then it would really be like the 1930's. In the meantime, I will just keep trying to make things grow. Lord knows, my business is not.

Tampa Taxi Shots Twitter

My Twitter Page
My Twitter site for Tampa Taxi Shots is taking off. I only have 65 post but I now have 123 followers.
Big things are in store and you need to be on board. With my new computer with Windows 10 the ability to do more work on this blog and market it is exploding. I have never been in a better position.

Now that Uber will be banned from the Sunday night NHL Hockey match between the New York Islanders and Tampa Bay Lightning, we will have the chance to show how superior our service is. And I mean Uber WILL NOT BE ALLOWED NEAR THE STADIUM.

Go to my Twitter to see the video I just put up and it is getting traction.

Victor Crist must go for the sake of jobs

video

The way Victor Crist of the HCPTC called out a lobbyist the other day was something Donald Trump would not have even done. His distain for taxi drivers, limo and taxi owners, and his ass kissing of the TNC's shows he is biased and should not be, at least, allowed to vote. Better yet, he should be removed.
At my new computer in my home office

Victor Crist is biased and must go.

Is Hillary Clinton physically ill?

This is my Twitter video that is getting some play in which I speculate of the health of the Democratic front runner. Believe me, if a taxi driver can exploit it, Donald Trump will go after this as well. The key to this are the pant suits. There is a reason she will not show her legs.

Rick Dyer


Boy am I catching heat. Rick Dyer is a friend of mine who owns a car dealership in Daytona Beach. He happens to be one of the most famous Bigfoot researchers in history. Unfortunately, for all the wrong reasons.

He drove to Tampa Saturday to spend s
The day with me. We went out in the woods and flew his Drone. That's it folks. No grand conspiracy, just two guys hanging out.

He is a hoaxer who knows there's a sucker born every minute. All he's done is let people believe, and they now hate him. Sure, he always looks for am angle and he's a millionaire for it.

I can learn a lot from this guy...like how to finally get on TV.

Before you judge him, just know the whole world is a hustle.
