Re: “Can Chicago's taxi industry survive the ride-share revolution?

A proper title would have been:

"Can Chicago's taxi industry survive the FRAUD-share revolution? "

Ride-sharing is a law-breaking tax-evading offshore-based fraud.
These multi-billion dollars foreign ride-sharing mega-corporations
don't pay even 1% (yes, you read that right - not even 1%) - back
to the municipalities they are allowed to operate - when compared
to our classic and proven taxicab model.

It's a 100% fraud pretending to be a technology.

Guess what - app-based taxicab dispatch existed long before this
ride-sharing fraud was even conceived. The fact that politicians
fail to understand this fraud, or - are paid to NOT understand this fact,
is concerning. The end results is funds taken offshore from our
local taxicabs AND our local municipal coffers - offshore, to ride-
ahmm--sharing oligarch's tax-heaven accounts.

That's all that this ride-sharing "revolutionary" model really is -
a mass scale FRAUD with politicians on the take supporting it.
