Re: “Time To #DeleteUber In Oakland

Why anybody feels the need to defend Uber, even in part, is beyond me. Try to understand, this is not about Uber, this is about the role that their management and their money, and if you use Uber, your money, is playing in providing support to the Trump administration's policy's across the board against immigrants, women's rights, peace, economic equality. You want to convince us that Uber shows a pretty face at times, save your breath, BP had the prettiest commercials up after the biggest oil spill in history in the Gulf and gave multi millions out to convince everyone they weren't so bad. Likewise, our good neighbor Chevron loves to give out grants and tell us how they invest in all kinds of great projects while they make their many billions poisoning the earth and its atmosphere. That is what big business is today, flashy ads selling their good persona while their bad souls work against most of us. So don't fool yourself that you have to be politically correct by being fair to Uber. In there world, and the Trumputin's world you don't have to be fair unless they catch you.

Re: “Time To #DeleteUber In Oakland

Some people have praised with loving kindness Uber for making a financial decision that no doubt benefited them because of the perks and tax breaks they would receive. They have to admit it was not because the company counted how many Oaklanders were using Uber. But if they seriously worried about the city's economy, why are they not protesting all the Federal dollars that Trumputin will retract from Oakland for being a sanctuary city?

Re: “Time To #DeleteUber In Oakland

Trump is happy to support his Uber friends. They are just as against worker's protection, rider protection and fairness as the Trumputin. We just have to get over thinking that it's always okay to get the best deal and at the same time think we can stick with good values. The Taxi drivers aren't playing us, those that want us to turn a blind eye to exploitation and the destruction of any consumer protections always try to pit us against each other.
