Progressives know how to ingnite the economic engine....

$360K to be a cab driver in Chicago.....

"Chicago is auctioning 50 taxicab medallions through October 18, the first such auction in three years. But they won’t come cheap: The city will not accept bids less than $360,000. To put that in perspective, Barack Obama makes $400,000 a year as the leader of the free world."

You should have checked your source before you had to be proven wrong. I was right the first time.

But we all make mistakes. We don't all attack someone when making those mistakes at the same time, however. At least you stood corrected.

Progressives kill off the incentives to work your way up out of poverty...
How?
"The taxicab industry is even worse. Because taxiing requires minimum skills and minimum capital outlay (all you need is a car), it has always attracted a large number of poor laborers. But no more. The taxi industry is so carefully regulated and restricted that, in New York for example, the selling price for operators licenses run as high as $100,000! To drive a taxi! The poor are kept in their place. They are forced to depend upon entitlements."
Grant, G.,(2002).'In the shadow of plenty.' Christian Liberty Press : Illinois Page 114.
FAST FORWARD....
talk about preventing people from moving up in the world....
"$1 Million Medallions Stifling the Dreams of Cabdrivers"
"...individual medallions have also attracted ballooning sums. Today, the average market price is more than $1 million. In November 2008, it was less than $550,000..."

It is not just the taxi industry. It is a whole rash of industries and that is why my firm stays out of the formal sector and takes its chances with the opportunities afforded us and the loopholes that abound that can be successfully exploited.

Presentin that in a discussion with that indoctrinated ignorant buffoon is like discussing the concept of tolerance with an Islamist. She, and every other indoctrinated Democrat dupe here, just doesn't understand the concept that it's YOUR money. To them, the government owns everythng by default, and only lets you keep part of what you earn. They have been indoctrinated with Marxist communism, and a concept of private ownership is beyond their ability to comprehend.
Every now and then they'll slip up, much like Obama did with Joe the Plumber, and actually tell you they are Marxist communists. Have you seen the argument from them "It's our money. It shoud stay here." Well, they believe that about your money. But they draw the line when it comes to the money the illegal aliens are sending out of the country.
We're in a very different battle this time. Most definitely. The progressives have succeeded in making their communistic-leading ideology attractive to the weak and vulnerable.

Their ideology, propaganda and lies have to be defeated in the next two elections. It's now or never.

Yes, you DemoKKK-RATS enjoyed starting the Klan. What was your role back in the 1950's when you were young, Commie?
