TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY MARRIOTT PROTEST AGAINST YELLOW CAB BILL GEORGE MONOPOLY CONTINUES!!!



Quick Kansas City photo essay to start the morning regarding a longstanding local fight.

To wit . . .

CHECK THE ONGOING PROTEST IN FRONT OF THE KANSAS CITY DOWNTOWN MARRIOTT OVER A CONTROVERSIAL YELLOW CAB EXCLUSIVE DEAL!!!



Remember that our KICK-ASS BLOG COMMUNITY laid out the deets of this controversial deal earlier this year but it seems that protestors are committed to getting their message out there . . .



This is the second week of these Downtown protests and just from the activity we noticed . . . The frustrated Kansas City cabbies are making an impact. We noticed the blonde hottie was excpetionally panicked @ the recent early morning display . . .



We talked to a few of the drivers and they plan to keep up their complaints "no matter how long it takes" . . . And we noticed more than a few honks of support from locals passing by . . .



To be fair, KC Transportation Group honcho Bill George reminds us that "Private business can choose companies they do business with. Just like a hotel selects a produce vendor, linen company, etc."

Meanwhile, Kansas City anti-trust complaints continue amid an increasingly divisive local transit scene.

Developing . . .

KC is home to insider deals. But does it lower prices and serve the consumer better? That is the real question TKC!

Private business can make any deals it choses but the drivers are also free to protest. If I owned the hotel and didn't make the original decision I would also look at how the decision was arrived at.

Don't scare people you 'tards you do not stand a chance to beat Bill. The Council loves Bill. The police might just look the other way if something violent needs to happen to send the 'tards back home.

Hotels can't discriminate or violate Anti-Trust Laws. Their right to do business does not supersede Federal law.

Buy American!

The "monopoly" or as we in the real world call it, agreement between 2 businesses, is most likely a sound decision for the Hotel. I'm here to help.Try to keep up...
You have a single taxi company serving customers of the hotel. Your cab driver cusses you out in Somali? The backseat had what appears to be a lab experiment cooking into the fabric? The driver took you 6 miles on a 3 mile trip? Customer complains to concierge ,who in turn calls cab company and chews their ass. Offending cabbie no longer picks up fairs there.
The other scenario, anyone with the cash for a license and a 10 year old crown vic, provides shit service, fucks customers out of money, cusses them out in Somali, nothing can be done. Hotel ends up looking sub par. At the end of the day, company A can do business with any or all of the letters in the alphabet, or only one. This isn't China....yet.

Yellow Cab has the worst service in town. If you want to support local owned USA cab companies instead of a French owned company..... BOYCOTT YELLOW!!!!!

There is nothing wrong with that blond body wise but based on how she is dressed and her demeanor in the photo, I get she is a bitch on wheels.

More driver violations are issued to Yellow Cab drivers at the airport and regulated. Fact check

Calling on all my Union brothers and sisters to boycott french owned company yellow cab. I'm tired of seeing American business go down the tube for foreign corporations. United we stand.

I've always heard "spend your money locally, keep Kansas City's money flowing here". Then I see the city allowing a company like Yellow Cab to put our own local cab businesses down like this? This is quite disappointing and our City Counsel and leaders need to care more about the residents rather than their own pocket books.

Corporations like Yellow Cab don't provide good service. They're big and they don't care about their customers as much as the little guys who value each and every customer.

Bill George is about as French as Tony you dumb fucks

Of course Bill George is not French he is a Lebanon. The company is owned by France. Yellow Cab $$$$ goes to France not the USA.

All I know is that Billy G is paying out some undisclosed amount to have these hotels use Yellow Cab only. Not because they "Have the best Service." Corporations have enough money to put everyone else out of business and that is exactly what they want to do.

Yellow cab is OWNED by Veolia, a french owned corporation.

Bill George runs the local business of Yellow Cab/ Supershuttle/ KCTG et al.

Bill George will do ANYTHING NECESSARY to KILL ANY competition as it STILL effects his bottom line in the forms of BONUSES and PROFIT SHARING.


Funny how he is on a blood hunt for Lyft and Uber, yet he is doing some of the very same things to other companies he is afraid of happening with the ride share companies!

City Hall needs to get Bill Georges hand out of their asses!

ESPECIALLY Sly and the "Regulated Industries Division" who I am pretty sure Bill "directs" to do his bidding!

The FBI needs to investigate all this CORRUPTION.
