TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY RIDE-SHARE TAXI HOT MESS CONTROVERSY GETS RACIAL!!!



Right now the Kansas City controversy over ride-share Internets programs and the taxi industry is reaching a fever pitch.

If I'm reading this right . . . The Kansas City Somalis could soon enter the fray . . .

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY INSIDERS INTRODUCE A RACIAL ELEMENT INTO THE MIX AS SOME OF THIS TOWN'S HIGHEST RANKING LAWYERS GETTING READY TO GET INTO THE MIX!!!

Here's the argument from a rather AWESOME KANSAS CITY INSIDER regarding the racial element of this standoff that could soon make mainstream headlines . . .

"This Lyft issue, for example, presents a lot of recurring drama regarding Bill George's monopoly on the cab permit system, that, as you remember, was recently legally challenged and failed in Jackson County's Circuits courts. He's likely not a bad guy, but his alleged past role on Regulated Industries raised a lot of concerns with the minority cab company owners who are always fighting the permit regulations. While he pays annually for cab permits, he also charges his drivers a monthly fee that is much more than he pays, leaving cab drivers with about $18,000-$20,000 in yearly income."

Now . . .

Kansas City Transportation Group Exec Bill George responds to the statements over compensation and legal tactics:

"Our fees to our drivers include; the cost of the car, maintenance, sales tax, property tax, licenses, insurance, marketing, 24/7 call taking and dispatching services, technology and data fees, computer equipment, meters, radios, taxicab signage, backseat credit card machines, credit card processing, etc.

"The city's best cab drivers contract with us because we offer them superior services and earning potential."

This journey isn't near complete and this post offers an important clue as to which direction this hot mess is headed. STAY TUNED TO TKC for all the latest deets . . .

DEVELOPING . . .

Saw full size Yellow Cab downtown with KCMO City approved sticker on side and a Kansas license plate. Guess they do pay fees - to Kansas.

Lyft and Uber will come out the winners in all of this mess.

It's the old shrecropper company store scam.

Bill George wants to use city regulation as a sword and a shield. But hey, that's what good business people do--use all of the tools at their disposal to add value to their business. Lyft and Uber would do no differently were they the entrenched interests. IMHO, it seems like the city should adjust the regulations to encourage competition while maintaining basic standards.

Bill George is a CROOK, plain and simple...always has been, always will be. He has always operated like he owns transportation in KC. Used to call those sorts, mobsters...

Somalis? Oh you mean sand niggers. Why do we import them when we grow enough of them here? Here is the funning thing, our home grown Negros do not like Somalis.

Lots of bitching here bit not many solutions. Only a brain dead hipster would get into one of those uber cabs. They don't have insurance and their whole system exists to rip off the unsuspecting public.

The Boomer generation can't die off soon enough for my liking.
They will fight to maintain the status quo until their last dying agonal gasps.
These cocksuckers were handed the golden ticket of dirt cheap oil and they used it to create vinyl houses in subdivisions, shopping malls and an obsession with green lawns. And the worst thing about it is, they are still SMUG about their place in history.
Fuck off and die already.

More blithering from the generation who used billions of vinyl diapers....

The solution is simple. Let the city get out of the taxi business.

Lfyt and Uber don't give a shit about the citizens of KC. Their one and only goal is to make their investors "whole again".

Yawn. But that IS a great picture!

Why is it that the great state of Mizzourah lets Kansas City run the taxi business when it doesn't consider Kansas City competent to even run its own police department?

Lama Glen, you pathetic little gen x shit heel,
If not for the boomers you wouldn't have nice back paths, clean parks to practice your Tai Chi new age horse shit. Everything, and I mean every single thing you own, from your battery powered car to the electric trimmers you use to manscape your taint, these things exist because of boomers. So sit back, relax with a micro brew and your new age gluten free Mexican/swiss fusion tacos, and shut your fuckin ungrateful insipid cake hole. We'll all be dead soon enough, then you weak sisters can await the Chi-coms to take over this once proud country. In the meantime, eat a made from recycled diapers box full of dicks.

The term in his case is...OWNER/OPERATOR. Or didn't you choose to think of that?

Here I thought the issue was all about both Lyft and Uber who do not #playbytherules that every one else is complelled to operate under every where, even London, Paris, Berlin, Barcelona, the Philipines, China, Australia, and new Sout Wales where Uber has been ruled as illegal.

While Bill George tries to break down his fee's to his drivers and you (which BTW Tony, is charged weekly and not monthly)(and that is so if a driver doesn't have his or her weekly payment they(KCTG) can take the car back and give it to yet another eager waiting sucker)

He fails to tell you that he could care less if his drivers make a buck outside of getting the money he charges for his cars. That can be verified by looking on the internet and researching reviews for 10/10 Taxi and yellow cab with its impeccable record for bad customer service (Bill George and monopoly AKA KCTG is a vehicle leasing company not a customer service company)

The worst thing is he (Bill) could care less if his dispatch tells you a cab is on the way (why you wait thinking they are coming) when in reality they will NEVER SHOW UP! I bet Lyft would!! I guess its up to the citizens who use services such as yellow cab and 10/10 to get changes made so that other companies who would compete with BG's Monopoly could have the opportunity to offer better service, better rates and would actually show up.

Funny how the media spins their lies. Lyft can never become legal in KC nor can any other livery or taxi service, because Bill George has the monopoly on the taxi and livery permits in KC. He is rich enough because he is corrupt enough to buy your city officials to keep him in business, he said his business is here because of his "hard work" and as we all know not done by being a "honest" business owner. He is a Mobster and your pussy city officials let him do and get with whatever he wants, because they are afraid of him. People should BOYCOTT any service KCTG offers.

interesting that the city of kansas city is more than happy to help bill george keep his monopoly. Great use of taxpayer resources.

Here is the secret to getting a Bill George Taxi to pick you up and FAST. If you want a ride to the grocery store,or across the street tell the dispatcher you want to go to the airport, its like back when Mast was in town if you wanted a fast response from a pay phone all you had to do was say you had chest pain. It works!!

Flood cab lines with bogus calls. Then when the action news team can't get a ride maybe Sly will do something. Let Sly call a cab from a pub at midnight without a heads up and watch him wait. Sly and Bill George suck each other off.

.......and a partridge in a pear tree.......

The S'lut said...

You apparently missed the memo showing that argument is INVALID right?

BOTH Uber AND Lyft PROVED they have SUPERIOR insurance over the cabs as well as the fact that their background checks are even MORE STRINGENT than the city REQUIRED and KCTG/Yellow Cab are much more LENIENT towards having drivers with histories of having accidents!

Anonymous said...

All places where MONOPOLIES RULE the game and laws PERMIT the monopolies to exist!

Anonymous said...

So KCTG is not about GREED then?

Because if THATS what you think, you haven't been paying attention!
