CELEBRATE!!! UBER NOW KANSAS CITY STREET LEGAL BUT UNPROFITABLE!!!



Before the Internets transforms Kansas City transit with via mobile app . . . They're gonna have to figure out a way to make a legal buck in this town. Example . . .

KC BIZ JOURNAL: Uber Technologies Inc. is now operating inside the law in Kansas City. Late on Saturday night, Mayor Sly James tweeted that the San Francisco-based ride-sharing company is now operating "legally and in compliance" in the city. Joni Wickham, a spokeswoman for the mayor's office, said the Mayor's tweet was in reference to the fact that Uber is not charging for their services.

In order to protect his Kansas City Taxi empire . . . Expect Yellow Cab honcho Bill George to continue to keep the pressure on any Internets competitors . . .

LIKE IT OR NOT . . . INTERNETS FREEBIES AREN'T GOING TO BRING DOWN THE KANSAS CITY YELLOW CAB MONOPOLY!!!



Currently, Mr. George seems to beaten Lyft, he might have to live with Uber which is really just a glorified limo service . . .

But what really rattles Kansas City Insiders is Bill George "encouraging" Mayor Sly and City Council to tinker with the muni-code in a way that always seems to help his competitive business advantage. Reality check: The biz lobbying wouldn't be such a big deal if politicos didn't automatically grab ankle for every suit with corporate connections. But I digress...

Developing . . .

Uber is not charging. Drivers are aggressively seeking donations, a portion of which go to Uber. Hell, these Uber guys are crafty. Sly has met his match.

10:18 I am always glad to see people such as you who do nothing but surf the internet looking for people spelling something wrong, and then laugh at them.

So does this make you all wet and horny so the dog might lick you later to get the nasty smell off you after your fake man partner ass fucks you with a strap on?

Oh by the way the word compatition gets no less than 1,270.000 hits on Google which if converted to dollars is a total your loser life will never see.

12:09: You have a good point. People should pay more attention to what they post. Especially people who claim to have a Mensa-level IQ and post here in all caps all the time.

Strap-on needs a hyphen. Compound nouns matter.
