    best laid plans of uber drivers and unemployed men 

    hot wheels

    good thing for me nothing in here is true but i believe the City of LA today outlawed

    Lyft, Uber, and Sidecar

    aka my brilliant plan to drive people around LA without having to be a taxi driver.

    my mom hates my idea because she thinks it’s dangerous

    but i enjoy driving. i love LA. and strangers are some of my favorite people.

    also i believe in the Lord, and I don’t worry too much about dying

    especially while driving a hipster cab hailed from people via their iPhones.

    anyways i was thisclose to trading in the sportscar for the Ford C-Max

    aka the Prius Killer and then driving around LA at rates lower than cabs.

    but the City of LA seems to hate revenue.

    they keep trying to figure out ways to “control” the medical marijuana dispensaries

    even though there doesnt seem to be any problems with it even tho there are lots of pot shops

    and now theyre trying to put the noose on the Uber model.

    heres the thing about the Free Market: it usually works.

    if 1,500 tax-paying pot shops don’t increase crime, then let them all exist

    if Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar add an alternative to transporting people around this city as opposed to limos, cabs, and Craigslist “friends”, then let them roll.

    wasn’t America supposed to be the land of the free?

    just tax them, which should be easy, and when a problem occurs, either let the very capable auto insurance industry handle it

    or then enact some sort of legislation that says “you must have a car no older than 10 years old, and carry sorta expensive insurance”.

    and then get the heck out of the way of progress.

    now ive gotta get a real job.
