KANSAS CITY VS. LYFT

KC Biz Journal reports this story that we've been talking about: "Kansas City is seeking a temporary restraining order against Lyft Inc. On Friday, Kansas City filed a petition for temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction and permanent injunction restraining San Fransisco-based ride-sharing company Lyft from operating, dispatching or enabling transportation for hire vehicles."

Funny when people such as Bill see their power and money flowing away how they get even more nastier in public. I agree Bill is like Glazer two assholes who never know when to shut the fuck up and keep quite. All Bill is doing is stirring the people to dislike him even more than they did and will support anything that starts up against him.

Looks like Bill won round two against Lyft.

Bill George for Mayor

The best answer for consumers and businesses would be to increase badges from 500 to 1000 and to allow for an open auction for the 466 additional badges (there is actually 544).

That way if lyft or whoever wants to participate they can do it legally like everyone else.

I hope they sober up the judge before this one hits court.

The FIX is in! Ol' Bill George is the one behind zTrip in KC and he'll be happy to know that he won't risk losing any of HIS drivers to the competition so that he can continue to CHARGE them all over $300 or MORE per WEEK to continue WORKING for HIM!

Now you KNOW the DIRTY TRUTH!

If Lyft is run by illegal aliens, then they don't have to obey the rules.
