    Oooooh, you weren't. Did you see the white peopel fighting at Walmart, and stuff, on black Friday's since like, since I was born, almost. Maybe. Just saying. And all that other stuff people of all colors do, since like, forever. And orange people aren't that good to people either. Obama should apologize for being honest sometimes.

    Do tell that's not how economies work. Again politicians don't effect economy much. Just like how they don't create jobs like your beloved Trump promised everyone. Politics aside our economy went into the dumps bc of the housing market bubble caused by negligible banks and millionaires like Trump. Not because of a bad Obama speech.

    If Obama had any control over Uber he would probably regulate it heavily and make them pay better.

    Uber has cut rates because the market allows them to do so. You dont seem to understand economics very well.

    Obama caused the low Uber rates though. That's entirely true. Trump doesn't like cheap labor at all. He hates cheap labor (cuz it's too expensive, and not a good deal if you can get it for free some how, but it's even cheaper to trick people into paying for a bogus university). But He's totally against it. Like that one time....no wait, but that one thing....no wait......but he cares and........god, why do people believe in that guy? It's so sad. It seems like the country has been sliding out of it's economic dominance since the 70's. The world's changing. The real economic masters have been going global through most of the 20th century, and it's just becoming ultra visible to most poeple here, now that it's gotten mega obvious. But every thing was good until Obama. Then he made those negros feel safe to be uppity and thank god the orange muppet will save us. We almost had the black uprising Charles Manson prophesied, but the muppet came just in time.

    Every time I 'bate, my account gets a $50. Feeling good is all it takes. Then I don't feel as good after and it goes down again. And so does my account balance.

    The problem isn't the economy itself. The problem is the income inequality. The guys at the top keep getting more bonuses and raises while middle class and lower class wages stay stagnant to keep margins high. To be honest Uber is making people drive Thier own cars so they can undercut taxis who have to pay for cars

    He wants you to call him a billionaire. He really needs that. You're hurting the poor guy's feelings. He's gone to lots of trouble to convince everyone he's a billionaire. Just humor him. He's easily ruffled.

    And Do tellDo tell is cool, cuz he isn't being all stupid. Nice that no one has started flinging feces.
    Actually, more than half the SF section was pro Trump. We had a poll. We had a thrread or two then taken down for too much feces flinging. It was fun.

    They haven't made anyone drive. They offered the opportunity. We took it. I took it 3 years ago, and of course am very disappointed, but they never made me do it. But it was a clever way to exploit peasants. Not the first or last. #ihatemyspecies

    As a matter of fact I too Havn't drove for them since they left Austin. Now I'm a student again. America is great right now and will continue to be. It could definitely be better. Not sure how when I need tires for my car I can shop 20 different brands to find tires I like but when it comes to choosing political leaders I get stuck with two ****ty parties who have been around for way too long. Now I have a commander and chief who compulsively tweets. The other choice sucked just as bad. We as Americans deserve more than 2 teams to chose from. Don't forget to tip!

    Uber has

    ✓ Managed to remove the social norm among passengers of 'tipping'.

    ✓ AND managed to maintain the social norm among drivers of 'service' :D:D:D

    that is basically it, in a nutshell.


    Joke is on the drivers who feel obligated to provide service
    . The newbies and the ignorant in that group have good excuses for missing the strategem.
    The only drivers who really seem despicable, are the Uber driver equivalent of 'uncle toms', who heartily defend these business tactics, and even deride the 15% of drivers who call a spade, a 'spade'...
