Let’s just use this medallion taxi v. Uber deal:
· Cost. If you prefer to pay more in a medallion cab, we say – go for it. Why not? American government agencies and the businesses they regulate are based on the principle of paying more for less when it comes to their output, products and services
· Convenience. Many of us prefer to stand in the road with our arm extended; waving; yelling; making any gesture needed to draw the attention of empty medallion cabs driving by, ignoring us, avoiding eye contact. This activity becomes even more fun if it’s raining, or snowing or just late at night. For those so inclined – stick with it. We don’t see why you would choose to hail a Uber cab from inside and see when you will be picked up and how much the ride will cost
· Review of drivers and their vehicles. Here we can’t even offer the alternative for the governments beloved medallion cab operators. You see we’ve never seen a user commentary compiled on our phones for the government regulated operators. But, hey, that’s ok. After all – it’s a government program. They aren’t going to do anything with your reviews, comments and suggestions if you bothered to make them
· Safety. If you feel safer in a medallion cab, use it
· Feedback. If you have found the medallion cab companies are open to your comments and suggestions, keep using them. We don’t know of any usable form of feedback with them or their government “regulators” but perhaps you do. If so, please share the apps you use to access and comment upon government services
· Ability to communicate with the driver. Many medallion taxi cab users don’t seem to value this communication factor, do they? So please, we encourage this group to stick with the bizarre outfits and strange languages; hairdos and dress. Or our favorite – the driver who endlessly speaks to his extended family in mumbo-jumbo speak while driving us, hopefully, to our destination which he never acknowledged
· Cleanliness, appearance, reliance of vehicle. Some of us just prefer to get into those 1990 and 1990 vintage medallion cabs. You know the ones with frayed everything and non-working gauges and indicators; sticky seats. The ones where you hope no part of your skin touches anything
Mrs. Clinton, of course, chooses not to travel in government regulated taxi cabs. We say – she shouldn’t. No way those beautiful yellow and orange K-mart styled suits or outfits or whatever you call that attire she uses to dress up for her staged outings should be despoiled even more in a medallion taxi cab. Ditto for bozo in New York.
There is nothing more backward; more non-technological; more inefficient; more inept; more high cost/low output in America than the many government products and services brought to you by extremely high paid “public servants” who proudly claim membership in outfits with these initials – AFSCME, NEA, AFT, NTEU, AFGE, AFL-CIO, SEIU and NFFE. And we also know this – the harridan and the bozo will both catch a lot of votes from this gang. Why not? It's easy work – high pay – no output expectations. They know where their bread is buttered. But still, we wonder, does this gang Uber?
Hey, we just had an idea. Why don’t we let the VA take over all health care in the US? Or put the IRS buffoon in charge of border control?
Last comment – do you know that to this day – July 28, 2015, the yellow cabs in NYC do not have a working phone app? How many phone apps have you seen for government services?
Please ma’am may I have more government?
