    The cities were boiling when enough people believed that Donald Trump was "literally" Hitler like the media said he was. Then he wasn't, and now there are just a few hysterics left.

    Man, I was listening to NPR this morning, it was so horribly irritating. They had this Code Pink woman on and they kept playing all these amazing clips and praising Donald Trump for talking about how horrible Saudi Arabia is, what horrible human rights and women's rights they have, and how Hillary should return the money that Saudi Arabia gave her.. Then they were talking about how Tillerson was in Saudi Arabia saying how the people of Iran should be free and have better human rights, and someone asked if he would say the same to Saudi Arabia and he would not. Then they were complaining that Donald Trump didn't take the Saudis to task for their women's rights and human rights violations.. which is fine, I can agree with that to some extent although I don't know what they may have discussed in private.. and I'm not happy about the weapons deal... but wait a minute.. Why in this discussion that went on and on and on, was there no mention of Hillary Clinton being the "women's rights" candidate and not doing the same? Was this woman not Sec. of State at one time? What about Obama? No, no, it was all narrowed in on Trump and his admin.. It's crazy how partisan they can be.

    Turkey is going to flood Europe with 8-10 million migrants this summer. I think it will all come to a head soon, yes. As far as the US, everything will be fine.

    Currently LMAO'ing at all the people who hated on Rand Paul for visiting the wall but supported Trump, who now just took your freak obsession even further than it's ever been before! If you are a Trumpaloompa who hated on Rand for visiting Israel and the wall, then you should probably acquire a hari kari sword at your earliest convenience. :D

    The driver gets paid based on a fare rate that is based on actual trip miles and time. They are not being deceived. The customer in some cases is agreeing to pay more, and in some cases less. I know since you have done some driving for them, you know that customers will often request multiple stops, and they aren't always right on the way. Uber has to pickup the cost on these fares because they have to pay the driver to go out of their way, and the customer misses paying that extra time and distance.

    Not Uber's fault.. the government is the one that regulated taxis so extensively that they made them prohibitively expensive for most people and most situations. I was railing against taxi regulations long before Uber came around, and told people about how if they didn't regulate cabs they would be cheaper and drunk people would use them more and you would have less problems with DUIs. Well, finally Uber came through and beat the regulations, made the trips cheaper and they have done a lot to reduce drunk driving accidents. I think there should be a market for regular cash fare taxis, but the problem is that the way Uber gets around the regulations is by claiming that the person is pre-hiring a private driver. Not sure how that would work with a cash transaction, but it isn't within their business model. It doesn't mean that cash taxi services are outside of the realm of what would exist in the free market, it just means currently they are prohibitively expensive and over-regulated.

    Look at the scale, and the razor thin margins, they are competing with Lyft and other rideshare companies as well. You have to convince me that riders are willing to pay the $15 for an Uber, but not willing to pay $18 for an Uber and would rather buy the $60 taxi.. Because that is the type of margins we are talking about, if Uber raised their prices just a little they would be making money. But their goal is to leverage the debt and focus on marketshare. It's a longterm business strategy, it is the best strategy they can currently engage in. It would be better if the ZIRP didn't exist, but like I said it would just mean they would have to sacrifice low prices and marketshare.. it doesn't mean they wouldn't exist, that is completely ridiculous.

    Dude, you are totally clueless. The existence of ridesharing increases the demand for taxi type services in an area by like 4 times at least.. probably 10 times. Nobody used to take cabs because they fucking sucked. It was hard to order them, they were dirty, you had to wait 20-30 minutes for them to come to your house, that's if you could get one to your house at all. The cab drivers were rude as fuck, they drover you all over town and charged you $60 for a ride that costs $15 through Uber or Lyft. Then ridesharing came along, and all of a sudden you could order a nice, clean car to your house in 5 or 10 minutes - they automatically call the closest available car, automatically text messaged you when they get there, the drivers are friendly, they don't overcharge and they are happy because they are making money because they don't give ridiculous amounts of money to the government for licenses and permits and they can use a vehicle that can easily be converted into a personal/commuter vehicle. I'm not trying to sell you on using the service, if you don't like it fine. But you sound like you don't know wtf you are talking about when you say the only reason these services are successful is because of cheap credit. They are successful because they got around government regulations and created a useful product utilizing a new technology (smartphones).

    Uber would operate anyway without ZIRP, it would just be a slightly different business strategy. They would still be wiping the cab industry off the map and profiting just fine without all the cheap credit. They are just leveraging the cheap credit and doing it faster. Like I said, you wanna pay 2.5x the amount to a "real" cab to has to pay exorbitant fees to the government (@Anti Federalist) then go ahead. I prefer to get a better car and less government regulated, better service for a cheaper price to someone who can use their vehicle for personal use so it is less costly to operate. Unfortunately you have to give up your anonymity (to Uber, not the driver), but there are a lot of benefits that Uber can provide as a company to the customer by giving them their paypal account and email address.

    As long as Lyft and other rideshare companies can operate beside Uber, it's not an issue. If it's that bad for drivers, then they can move to a different platform, same with riders.

    This is good for riders, Uber and Uber drivers. Being able to use as much information as possible to create the greatest possible demand and price discriminate to extract the most consumer surplus will create the best customer experience and will allow Uber to pay their drivers more. The one big issue I see with pre-determining charges for rides is that some customers like to make multiple stops to drop off friends. If the driver is going out of their way, this benefits the driver because they will get paid more but the customer will still be paying the pre-determined amount to get from Point A to Point B. But apparently nobody wants to write an article about Uber screwing themselves out of money.

    Just to clarify:

    Is it not acceptable to theorize (based on the hundreds of years of history of Roman Catholic persecution) about who might be the victims of that persecution today? If not, then I won't do it. But just remember....Jews, Atheists, and Christians were all victims of this tyranny.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
