How much does Your Uber or Lyft driver really make?

Most people that trust their life with their rideshare driver think that Uber or Lyft take a small percent from the driver to make the connection from Rider to Driver. FALSE. Now that both of these Taxi companies have gone Public they have taken more and more from the DRIVER. The driver has all the risk, all the expense, rideshare companies have NO overhead except for the Elite upper management that does NOTHING compared to a driver.

When Uber first started, they took a 20 percent cut from the fare and the fare was much larger than it is now. Both of these companies are taking more than 40 percent of the fare currently.

Here is a great example of what Uber takes (Lyft is almost the same)

the total fare to the airport cost the Rider 40 dollars. Uber paid the Driver 23.25 but there was 1.89 in tolls making the driver NET 21.36 and Uber took a service fee of 14.09 and a booking fee of 3.20 for a NET total of 17.29. A total of 38.65 is the NET amount taken from the Rider by Uber (1.89 were tolls) so Uber took 44.7 Percent. Would ANY rider think that the driver was only getting 55.2 percent of the fare?

The only possible way for a driver to make a profit is in Tips but Uber does not let the rider know that. They totally keep the rider in the dark about how much they take from the driver. It is very necessary for Congress to pass a law so that every rider has the facts.

 

 

Environmental Downside of Cannabis Cultivation (growing Marijuana)

It is almost funny to hear all the mostly left-wing wacko’s that are supporting the Green New Deal are also pushing for the legalization of recreational marijuana. There are few things that are worse for the environment than growing tobacco and marijuana (cannabis, hemp). You cannot grow tobacco or marijuana without stripping the trees first. Deforestation is something every environmental scientist agree is the very worst thing affecting the environment.

Myths and Lies about Legalizing Marijuana

We can get all the stoners to pay taxes on Pot that they are already smoking.
Not true, the real daily pot smokers are still buying from their local drug dealer. The local drug dealer can give them a better deal because He is not paying tax and not marking his supply up.

High paying local Jobs will be created.
Not true, the local jobs for People that work in the dispensaries are low paying and are small in number.

Legalizing Marijuana will decrease crime.
Not true, everywhere that has legalized marijuana has seen an increase in crime.

Legalizing Marijuana will lead to an increase in traffic accidents and fatalities. This is true, Every City that has legalized Marijuana has seen an increase in accidents caused by DUI’s. Las Vegas has seen a 30 percent increase in fatal accidents by impaired drivers.

Enforcement of Marijuana laws will be strictly enforced. This is not true, even though everywhere Marijuana has been legalized smoking it in public is prohibited but not enforced. In Denver, Portland, San Francisco and Las Vegas, You can see People openly smoking Marijuana without fear of being fined or arrested.

Legalizing Marijuana will lead to more drug use. Even though the same People are smoking Marijuana now that were smoking it before there is an increase in the amount they smoke. It is a fact that Marijuana leads to other drug use and that has increased the OPEN use of all drugs. The fact that law enforcement is not enforcing the public use of Pot smoking leads drug users to think that all drug use will be treated the same and this is mostly accurate.

They say marijuana doesn’t kill anyone. We wish that were true. These are our stories.

If You smoke, You suck!

If You smoke, You are in the single most hated group of People in the World, EVERYONE that does not smoke, hates You. You think they don’t? When You walk away, they say to each other, gross, He/She is disgusting, He/She smells like an ashtray, I think I am going to be sick. You drive around in Your car with the window cracked two inches because You have Your Children in the Car? Those Children should be taken from You, You are an abusive parent, no better than a parent that beats the living shit out of their kids.

Less than 15 percent of Americans smoke and yet, those few assholes ruin the air for 85 percent of innocent People, especially Children and pregnant mothers. Pregnant mothers breathing Your second-hand smoke can give birth to Children with birth defects. Mostly this is the Girls that must work at their bar job all the way through their pregnancy. A totally innocent Mother has to breath Your smoke so She can afford to live.

Crack users, Cocaine users are much better than cigarette smokers. Crack users need crack so bad they do bad things but they are not killing innocent People by the millions and a coke whore never blew cocaine in my face the way You blow your smoke.

Pregnant Mothers could be harming their daughters’ fertility in years to come, study claims

Your family suffers because of Your habit, they put up with it but they are all so disgusted with You they cannot think straight. No One wants You at their party, You are going to bother Everyone there even though You are smoking outside. Outside is for fresh air and a lot of times parties in good weather are outside but here comes Mr smoker to ruin the outside for EVERYONE. You join a group at a restaurant and have to leave every 20 minutes to smoke, aren’t You ashamed?

Do You really think Your extended family does not know You smoke? They totally plan around You, because You are like a bomb that No One wants to be around. Well, Uncle Henry/cousin Amy is coming so We have to figure out some way to make sure He/She doesn’t sit on the good couch because He smells like an ashtray. Okay, I will get Uncle Henry out on the porch and Y’all get the good couch totally occupied and keep the plastic chair empty so He will think He is lucky to get it. We can take the plastic chair out tomorrow and spray it with the hose.

And by the Way, Your spouse/partner is also disgusted with you:

In anonymous surveys, both Sexes said that they prefer their partner did not smoke even though they did and said that if they left that partner they would quit to be with a nonsmoker. the same People said they felt disgusted smelling their partner’s smoke but did not  know if that smell was partly themselves. All smokers said that it was a turn off.  Bottom line is People that smoke are NASTY, even People that smoke say so.

Smoking and Mental ilness

According to The

National Alliance on Mental Illness

In America, 44.3% of all cigarettes are consumed by individuals who live with mental illness and/or substance abuse disorders. People with schizophrenia are three to four times as likely to smoke as the general population. Smoking is known to cause heart diseasestroke and lung disease, among other medical problems:

An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton

No matter what happens, Hillary cannot get out of Her husband’s shadow. She had to defend Bill’s rape accusations, His admitted sexual assaults and he is Still the headliner. You cannot make this up, She has no accusations against Her, other than People just hate Her. Now in failing health, Hillary must go on tour with Somone She doesn’t even like. These two have not lived together for decades but they are going to share a stage like they are newlyweds, this might be a comedy.


Dennis Rodman is a True American Hero

Have We forgotten Who it was that first told us that this Evil leader of North Korea wants peace? Do You remember Who He tried to get to meet with Him? That would be Obama and what was the result? Obama ignored Rodman, brushed Him off as He was crazy. But Trump took the advice of Rodman and made the historic meeting with Kim Jong-un, time will tell just how important that meeting was.

My proof that Below deck is fake

Below Deck is a reality show and Below Deck Mediterranian is a spin-off of the same. Both are great shows but both are very fake. I have been on a mega Yacht and the very first rule of thumb is there will always be a server in the presence of the Guest. On both Below Deck shows they show guest begging for service but No One is there and most likely the reason is one or more of the staff is smoking. In my experience, No Yacht owner would allow employees to smoke on the boat.  Maybe Guest could smoke but most likely even they cannot. Anyone with enough money to lease a mega Yacht is educated and has lots of money and that group of People does not smoke. The largest group of People that smoke is the Mentally Ill. I doubt that the mentally ill can rent a mega yacht.

I asked if the Guest on this show get the trip for free since they will not get good service, I was told no, but the guest does get their faces on TV. It is incredible that people are that motivated to be on TV to give up service.

You have to question how bad the service is, would that really happen without a reality show surrounding the boat? NO, most of them would be fired the first day.  I really do not think any of them could possibly be that sorry. NOT ONE could work at Waffle House.

The cast of Below Deck is picked as actors not as workers, proof of that is on the episode where one cast member is questioning the validity of another’s resume. If this was real life the boat owner or Captain would have already checked the resume.
