Blockrants Political Corruption Report - Uber in Hamilton

When was the last time you heard a politician say,

"There is nothing we can do about poverty. Poverty is here to stay."

When was the last time you heard a politician say,

"There is nothing we can do about homelessness. Homelessness is here to stay."

When was the last time you heard a politician say,

"There is nothing we can do about climate change. Climate change  is here to stay."

When was the last time you heard a politician say,

"There is nothing we can do about Uber. Uber is here to stay."

Yep.

Do you see what I see?

There is no problem a politician will shy away from pretending to be able to solve. How long have we been hearing it? They can get rid of poverty. They can get rid of homelessness.

Fer Christ's sake, they are even so audacious as to pretend that they can control the climate.

There is no problem in the book that politicians won't pretend they can solve.

But when confronted with a problem, like a rogue corporation that gives them the middle finger and brazenly announces that it will flout all of their laws unless they change them, they humbly confess to utter impotence. They scurry like scared mice to bring their laws into compliance with the corporation's business model.

"There is nothing we can do. Uber is here to stay."

They lie about what they can do, and they lie about what they can't do.

Politicians are liars on every count.

If they say they will solve a problem, they won't.

If they say they can't solve a problem, it is because they have no intention of doing so.

And if they say that they are going to "level the playing field," well, I think you know what that means by now.

Does that come as a surprise?

Look at this bullshit canned response I got from one of Hamilton's politicians after I sent my political corruption report to him...
"Thank you for providing me feedback regarding Uber. I also believe we need to find practical ways to adapt to the technological advances in a changing taxi industry and have filed your message as background info to the Uber file. I look forward to seeing this evolve to the best possible outcome for residents and drivers."
Yeah, I'll bet he has "filed [my] message as background." I'm sure that is how the rest see it too.
He's still banging this phony drum about "technological advances?" It's obviously a canned response. Or he is completely clueless about the issue.
Which raises another question in my mind. His response came in very quickly. Did he actually read my post? Or is he using some kind of robot that responds to keywords in the text?
Either way, clueless about the issue, or using robots for canned responses as a fake way to pretend that he is "truly concerned" about the issue, he's either not smart enough, or not honest enough to pretend he is qualified to make decisions about the Uber issue.

  1. Politicians can't solve any problems because they are not in charge.
