Dear medallion moguls:
Mike Bloomberg's Green taxis are swiping the medallion drivers' lunch in Brooklyn, Harlem and West Queens.
Now comes UBER X. DRIVERS ALREADY FEEL IT BUT THEY DON'T YET KNOW WHAT'S HIT THEM! AND PERHAPS YOU DON'T SEE WHAT'S COMING AT YOU.
You are up against ubermensch and well funded sociopath Travis Kalanick. He and they are ready to take losses and break every rule, moral and legal in order to destroy you and further pauperize your drivers. The plan is to underprice the taxis and recruit your drivers.
Meanwhile the Uber and other driver's app itself is a safety threat. Even a scumbag like David Yassky had to back off giving these killer apps the final go ahead on December 19. Nobody asks him why in public.
We do not want havoc. These techno sociopathic fascists love to bring it to the lives of other people.
A Uber driver with his app on ran down the family of little Shirley Liu in San Francisco on New Year's Eve and left her dead Uber is fighting in court to evade its responsibilities. Under insured , not regularly inspected cars are going to run you down if mayor deBlasio does not step in. Do you know if taxis is even on his radar??
