NEW YORK – A federal judge refused Friday to block a new city rule that requires taxi drivers to install global positioning systems and credit card machines in their cabs by Monday.
The drivers argue that the city overstepped its authority and acted unconstitutionally when it mandated the units. Their lawsuit also claims GPS will give away trade secrets by disclosing the cabbies’ driving patterns, which they say give them a competitive edge.
U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman refused to block the rule from taking effect, saying the use of the technology to improve taxi service appeared to outweigh drivers’ privacy rights. He urged the two sides to negotiate
NYC cabbies lose court battle over GPS
The global-positioning systems being installed in all 13,000 cabs will be used to target and spy on Mus–lims, according to pro-strike literature being distributed by members of the New York Taxi Workers Alliance,
TAXI ‘FEAR’ HIKE
STRIKE CABBIES: GPS TARGETS MUS–LIMS
Somalia,Bangladesh, Pakistan, and India are the top three countries of origin of NYC cab drivers….hmmmmm.
More Muzlim histrionics and paranoia. Yawn.
Don’t wanna comply with work regs in the US?..Accordin to the Lefties…we shouldn’t make ya huh..ya know the philosophy: Hey. Whatevah melts your butter right?
How bout this philosophy:
No GPS-eey?–, no cabbie
No likey?– Go back to Somali!
No need to track anyone right?
What can ya expect from the Do absolutely nuthin about anythin types?
Heck where are the geiger counters and nerve gas detectors?
Sorry, there are those of us concerned with combatting the advance of anti-democratic Sha-riah in our countries mmmkay?
Dontcha know everything invented since the 7th century is apparently anti-Muzlim. Oh…, except for the suicide bomb.
Wait. Hasn’t the UN convened an emergency meeting to meet with these Muzlims’ grievances yet?
Perhaps those Libs simply refuse to accept the reality that many Mus-lims pose as being interested in “diversity” and freedom while it is really an intended, deliberate deception (“war is deception” –Muuuhamad) designed to help them forward the cause of Sha-riah implementation in our countries. And guess what?..We aint bitin.
No alcohol in “their” cabs. THEIR cabs?
No seeing eye dogs.
No pig products.
What next?..No Christians or Joooooos?
Certainly no GPS!..Hmmmmmm..what do ya suppose they are they hidin?
Then of course theres that ole argument: Izlam is not a monolithic bloc.. Well. guess what.. neither was Communism. Doesn’t exactly mean either was desirable or should be pandered to,.. now does it.
Insincere Muzlims insist on pointing out the alleged historic traditions of Muzlims over the centuries who supposedly “meshed so well with local communities to create new and dynamic cultures.” They love pointing out the Alha-mbra in Spain as one of the world’s greatest testaments to the spirit of ..cough cough…”cultural development.”
Funny how they never mention exactly how Muzlims arrived on the Iberian peninsula…….. Um, they weren’t exactly “invited”.
They burst onto the scene with armies of conquest. They slaughtered, raped, and slaved their way across the entire land and many others as well. They proceeded to make Jews and Christians second class citizens.
And that my friends, is the Muzlim model of “cultural development” :bloody invasion followed by religious persecution and discrimination.
GPS?…Stick it up to wazoo.
Don’t like it?
In a word: Tough.
