Blockrants Political Corruption Report - Uber in Hamilton

When was the last time you heard a politician say,

"There is nothing we can do about poverty. Poverty is here to stay."

When was the last time you heard a politician say,

"There is nothing we can do about homelessness. Homelessness is here to stay."

When was the last time you heard a politician say,

"There is nothing we can do about climate change. Climate change  is here to stay."

When was the last time you heard a politician say,

"There is nothing we can do about Uber. Uber is here to stay."

Yep.

Do you see what I see?

There is no problem a politician will shy away from pretending to be able to solve. How long have we been hearing it? They can get rid of poverty. They can get rid of homelessness.

Fer Christ's sake, they are even so audacious as to pretend that they can control the climate.

There is no problem in the book that politicians won't pretend they can solve.

But when confronted with a problem, like a rogue corporation that gives them the middle finger and brazenly announces that it will flout all of their laws unless they change them, they humbly confess to utter impotence. They scurry like scared mice to bring their laws into compliance with the corporation's business model.

"There is nothing we can do. Uber is here to stay."

They lie about what they can do, and they lie about what they can't do.

Politicians are liars on every count.

If they say they will solve a problem, they won't.

If they say they can't solve a problem, it is because they have no intention of doing so.

And if they say that they are going to "level the playing field," well, I think you know what that means by now.

Does that come as a surprise?

Blockrants Political Corruption Report - Uber in Hamilton

Look at this bullshit canned response I got from one of Hamilton's politicians after I sent my political corruption report to him...
"Thank you for providing me feedback regarding Uber. I also believe we need to find practical ways to adapt to the technological advances in a changing taxi industry and have filed your message as background info to the Uber file. I look forward to seeing this evolve to the best possible outcome for residents and drivers."
Yeah, I'll bet he has "filed [my] message as background." I'm sure that is how the rest see it too.
He's still banging this phony drum about "technological advances?" It's obviously a canned response. Or he is completely clueless about the issue.
Which raises another question in my mind. His response came in very quickly. Did he actually read my post? Or is he using some kind of robot that responds to keywords in the text?
Either way, clueless about the issue, or using robots for canned responses as a fake way to pretend that he is "truly concerned" about the issue, he's either not smart enough, or not honest enough to pretend he is qualified to make decisions about the Uber issue.

  1. Politicians can't solve any problems because they are not in charge.

How to Save the Ontario Basic Income Program!Background Leftist Ontario virtue signallers have been freaking out over the Ford government's cancellation of the Basic Income free money project that was cooked up by the Wynne government to build up their voter base. I follow a few of these caring individuals on Twitter to study their self delusions. They've all been afflicted lately with Ford Derangement Syndrome, peacocking their indignation at the cancellation of Wynne's free money giveaway "program." But does the program really have to be cancelled? Of course not. All it would require to be saved is for the virtue signallers, and there are loads of them, from Deb Matthews and Andrea Horwath, to a parade of obscure, Twitter addicts, and their offended fans. The good news is that the program can easily continue on a voluntary basis. The only difference is that the leftists would have to reach into their own pockets to show how committed and compassionate they …
Poor Uber Driver Oh my. This is a sad story. Here is an Uber driver voicing his concerns in the Uber driver's forum about whether or not his "sharing economy" gig is paying off. It's possible that this is not a genuine post from a genuine Uber driver. I see that. It's the kind of schlopp I would write if I were in a mischievous mood. On the other hand, given what I already know about the Uber scam, and the people it exploits in order to get them to employ "assets they already own," in Tim Hudak's famous phrase, it's entirely reasonable to believe that this is a REAL Uber driver, who is just beginning to figure out who is making money, or should be making money, and who is getting royally boned. (See my story about the Uber driver who drove a football player from Chicago to Buffalo for minus $38.50.) I knew it was a scam from the beginning. That is why, when people asked me why, instead of tolerating the City of Hamilton's demonstrably abs…
Matthew Green in a Nutshell Well, not just Matthew Green. These criticisms broadly apply to most politicians, especially those of a communist, or "liberal," bent. But since Mr. Green seems to enjoy the publicity he gets when squirting his virtue signals on every political hydrant he can find, to bolster his self-image as some kind of hero for the marginalized, I will use him as an example in this analysis. He just got more digital ink on (where else?) the CBC website. Now he's pretending to care about people who, for whatever reason, choose to patronize payday loan places. He claims, "he's tired of what he says is a predatory industry that preys on Hamilton's most vulnerable." And by this, he is not referring to that predatory industry that pays his salary at the expense of the tax vulnerable customers of the Corporation of the City of Hamilton. (You know, like the people who are being forced to pay for engineered gridlock on Hamilton's downtown…
