NYC moves to stop Uber, Lyft. Very little sympathy here

De Blasio and his City Council freeze permits, regulate taxi competitors. It strikes me that most Uber drivers trend left, so they have this coming. When the story hit the news recently of an Uber driver kicking three (black, if that matters) Trump supporters out of his car, I was going to point out that we're the people defending the right of independent contractors to compete against unions and the governmental authorities that seek to regulate them, but I figured that the deluded fools would soon discover the truth.

Now they have, and they ain't seen nothing yet. 

So screw 'em.
