One of the sponsors of the Urban Shield cop convention is Uber.— Shane Bauer (@shane_bauer) September 4, 2014
And a company executive recently joined the Department of Defense's Defense Business Board.
BE SAFE and DO NOT TAKE SO-CALLED RIDE SHARE RIDES because UBER is now ALIGNED with the Military Industrial Complex.
The mentality of using intimidation, force and abuse as a means to acquire wealth, power and status in these business-social power block circles is based upon lying, cheating, stealing and using your ignorance against you, to harm you and take your money out of your local communities.
UBER is not only sponsoring this mega conference, but many suspect it's likely they're becoming a front operation being used to plunder your local community because they control prices you have to pay them to be driven (short distances you can walk yourself or take a cab. -- there is no real 'saving time' in dense residential cities like ours) and MOST OF THE FARES YOU PAY LEAVES SAN FRANCISCO or your town and goes towards buying mansions for the elite.
Any woman that takes a ride with a non-regulated stranger with no assurance of how much of a risk it is, is nota very wise thing to do. Lose a life or waste hours to fix an overbilling by Uber, to save 10 minutes of travel time for what ?
Only because you lack time management or planning skills to insure you can walk and bus and taxi anywhere you need to, save money and keep more cash flows local.
Met a woman last night that is so hooked into fantasy of convenience that she commits to doing too much, uses Uber all the time (which she admits costs her more) and now, she's so far in debt she needs to leave town to afford to commute into town to work.
It's MADNESS! If she walked and biked and took taxis, instead of unkown priced Uber, she'd have the extra $200 a month to ba able to live here.
Once folks get sucked into text device app world, they click too much and move too fast, and spend too much until they realize they can't afford to be here... they 'run' fast here on a NY Speed Vibe (that's wholly inconsistent with our pace and vibes) only because they didn't reach out to locals, learn all the shortcuts to being able to 'afford' to be here -- how to live here.
In contrast to these 'pushed & lured' here newcomers, the 'runaways' who came here in the past came here to learn from the most advanced (200 cultures over generations in 49 square miles produces a population that has lots of culture, information and news available on any given day that other limited exposure cities get in a year) people who lived here and added to our lives here.
Today's newcomers, trying in recent news articles to 'akin' themselves to being here as hippies, etc., but they are not akin to anything but what they've been programmed into their heads by east coast and texas wizards, who sent them here to disrupt and destroy our communities, local identities, cash flows and resources to enrich the elite, period.
if you change your bad sheep trained habit of using 'modern' apps for convenience that steal cash flows and wreck existing lives and systems that work fine, once you learn them and stop being afraid all the time.
Always being 'rushed' into tthese fantasies and conveniences (giving elite your location, personal details, habits, percent of every transaction) that only enrich the elite, is not cool. Our locals walk slow and think and act to do what we choose to do, either from the 'choices' presented to us or if we reject those, we invent our own choices.
Newcomers 'do as they are told' or only choose options from what they already know. They are not here to learn from us, they are here to carry out the will of others to change us to their liking or force their short sided ideas (we've been through decades before) onto us to prove they are right and modify our traditions, laws, behavior and conduct to suit their 'plan' for us in their minds.
So, new is often not better, its riskier and takes away cash flow from your local communities.
UBER like many other lowest (read: cheapest) expense- megaprofit models have been in our city before and like other money grubbers before them, their harms to us can only last so long until they expose themselves to be aligned with the military elite mentalities that are killing OUR PEOPLE on OUR STREETS TODAY.
Please BOYCOTT all Corporations that operate outside the law or that support the wicked monsters in power that live luxurious lifestyles built upon the blood of our people in the street and in our communities and abroad in their wars for oil, money and power.
** Many of you (especially newomers brought here for 'business' are like children and you'll likely continue to let your wishes for convenience stop you from doing the right thing and until you suffer, you won't understand the seriousness of your place in the world today and your role in our communities.
** Those of you who hear and understand these issues as adults must take all actions necessary to divert cash flows (out of your pocket or under your control) away from for profit banks like Chase and corporations like Uber that support Tyranny and Fascism and Men that Rape Women More Often Than Most All Other Groups Combined.
** Move your money to Locally operated, nationally supported Community Credit Unions.
** Use known REGULATED Public Transit, especially in tiny breadth cities like San Francisco, where Ride Shares do more harm than good and with smart, calm planning, you can walk and rent a car once a month to do more, excercise more and spend less.
** Don't Be Alone. Some cops are so hyped up on drugs or liquor or 'the bad ass' lifestyle they are in fact, Trigger Happy.
** Spend more real face time with your pets, babies, family and loved ones and neighbors than you do with your petro-chemical hand held consumer devices. Your family and pets will love you more for it and not 'act up' later because of cell phone abandonment issues.
** Stop spending most of your money to benefit global corporations that steal local cash flows.
** Deprivatize. Stop supporting privatized corporate-government services that TAKE cash flow and resources away from your communities to benefit the elite who fund the wars and big pharma and prison syndicates.
As you Check this out remember -- SF City Leaders, like Mayor Ed, Liar, Liar Pants on Fire (run, ed, run with enrique), leave-you-to-die-in-a-city-hall-bomb-threat Lee SUPPORT & FAVOR Uber and other high tech renegade cash flow thieves, to our great risk, loss, detriment and peril:
