      I never understood until recently what all the fuss over Uber was about in cities across the U.S. But now I understand it a little more than I use to thanks to a taxi driver that opened my eyes a little bit.

      Most cities across the US and even abroad have rules that protect the driver and the passenger and so far Uber has been able to skip many of them. Many drivers in the U.S have video surveillance regardless if it is a rule put in place by the city, county or State they installed them anyway.

      My taxi driver told me those cameras save lives and help the police to find and arrest the thugs. But they also save lives in other ways. He told me that there is a case somewhere in the U.S. that stopped a guy from selling a girl into slavery. It did so by the way the girl acted on the ride to a hotel if I remember right he picked them up at the airport. The taxi driver took the memory card to the police and asked for someone to view the footage and see if their was something going on more than just a ride to a hotel. The girl was like 15-17 and she didn't look related to the guy at all the whole ride seemed off. What the taxi driver didn't know was she was brought into the U.S to be a sex slave. She was literally stolen off the streets in her own County.

      The taxi meters are a no brainier they protect both the taxi driver and the rider against abuse on both sides.

      Why Uber sees no reason to have either of these for their drivers it is just crazy.

          Canal Street was never a high-end retail experience. But, like many streets in New York City and in cities across the US, it is becoming increasingly desolate.

          Boarded-up stores line the thoroughfare that bisects much of lower Manhattan. Many stores that are still open for business also display signs that read “for lease” or “for rent.

          “It’s not Trump,” said one downcast store-owner recently. “It’s not the economy. Something else is happening. People aren’t spending.”

          This week, Credit Suisse downgraded the retail sector, saying the outlook had become bleaker than it had anticipated in large part because of events in Washington and through discussion of “whether we think the risks of the border adjustment provision in the House corporate tax reform proposal are fully reflected in apparel and retailing stocks”. Other analysts have shown similar pessimism.

              When Trump went outside his lane of expertise with Casinos he failed very badly. When he went outside his lane by promoting a bogus University, Vodka, Steaks, Magazines and other things he again failed miserably. These failures should have been obvious markers, along with his vast record of egotistcal personality, that he was the worst possible choice to run for any public office, which is totally out of his lane.

              He is the poster child for the Peter Principle.

              Job Cuts Endure At Indiana Factories Despite Trump Pressure

                  ______________________________________________________________________

                  "About 1,500 workers at three Indiana factories are facing layoffs despite hopes that President Donald Trump would convince the companies to reverse plans for moving production to Mexico.

                  "United Technologies confirmed Friday that the first wave of about 50 layoffs happened last week at its electronics plant that had about 700 workers in Huntington. The plant in the northeastern Indiana city is slated for closure.

                  "Steps are also being taken toward about 550 job cuts anticipated at a Carrier Corp. factory in Indianapolis, where Trump's intervention last fall curbed job losses but didn't halt them altogether. Layoffs could start within a month at a 350-worker Rexnord industrial bearings factory in Indianapolis, according to United Steelworkers Local 1999 President Chuck Jones, who represents workers at the Carrier and Rexnord plants.

                  "Trump visited the Carrier factory on Dec. 1, touting his role in the decision of parent company United Technologies to reverse about 800 of its some 1,400 planned job cuts at the furnace plant and only partially move operations to Mexico. Trump told a crowd of workers and company officials: "Companies are not going to leave the United States anymore without consequences. It's not going to happen.""

                      "John Krahne received alarming news from his doctor last December. His brain tumors were stable, but his lung tumors had grown noticeably larger.

                      "The doctor recommended a drug called Alecensa, which sells for more than $159,000 a year. Medicare would charge Krahne a $3,200 co-pay in December, then another $3,200 in January, as a new year of coverage kicked in.

                      "For the first time since being diagnosed 10 years ago, Krahne, now 65, decided to delay filling his prescription, hoping that his cancer wouldn’t take advantage of the lapse and wreak further havoc on his body."

                              Donnie is against feeding the elderly? Nah, I don't think he cares one way or the other about the elderly. I

                              think Donnie is using one of the oldest (and most successful ) tactics of all. Misdirection. You get people looking at one thing, and then do what you really want to do with the other. Any good magician, slight of hand

                              artist or con man is adept at this.

                              Donnie boy is taking away meals on wheels (now he's got your attention), now he goes to Florida to play golf

                              (another way to say setting the hook) and then while you are lamenting how horrible he is, he does what he really wants to do. I don't know what is next but I do think Rex is chomping at the bit to get Russian Sanctions lifted so that he can get to his Five Hundred Billion Deal.

                                  Lets put our thinking caps on. We have been told for decades the money the Government collects is our money so when the Hill talks about handing over billions of dollars to fund the many branches of government it's our money at work. But recently I haven't seen that happening. I have seen it all the banks, big Corps and mainly Government calling the shots, or they refuse to meet with their constituents and when they mention money they don't call it the peoples money they say they are not going to be funding certain parts of Government anymore.

                                  We really haven't had any say so in this in decades. Even with the Democrats in place we had just a tad more at calling the shots. It has been the Hill to call the shots and the constituents have always bit their tongue or tried to speak but had their words drowned out by the Hill.

                                  Over the years too the main ones to benefit on the Hill were the ones talking the loudest. Maybe we need to round those big talkers up and see what they are all gaining? Perhaps this downsizing is not what we think it is but instead a means for the Hill to make more money off the backs of the people? It won't be the first time a Government trashed a branch of Government because they either didn't like their politics, or hated what the branch could do to them.

                                  Why I Don't Agree With Jim Rickards And DAS About Everything

                                  and being too smart and too clueless

                                  The three brightest alt-economists and contrarians that I know of are Jim Rickards, David A. Stockman and Harry Dent. I put JR first because he's a visionary who sees that the USD won't always be world money aka reserve currency, but the IMF SDR will. DAS is an ex-DC insider, and HD is a brilliant analyst of history and the generational trends that have brought us to where we are. They and many more see where we're at today, and the picture isn't pretty.

                                  They're not perfect though, and via talking about them and central banksters, I'm going to try to share what I've learned lately. JR and DAS are too kind when talking about the Fed. JR says they're smart but wrong (???), and DAS calls them clueless.

                                  I call the central banksters cat smart. They can keep it going with great confidence until they can't any more, when the big reality dog shows up and overwhelms the strongest. Their cluelessness is as fake as their confidence, because they have huge research departments and all the info they need. You don't raise rates like Yella Janet did when growth is 0.9% unless there's something fishy goin' on. She knows very well that a recession is long overdue, and is raising now so that rates can be lowered again when necessary.

                                  I think JR and DAS are too kind because they've worked in and with govt.

                                  So what did I learn? That being smart and wisdom isn't the same, and that they really are central banksters when thy hide the truth and make the problems much worse.
