Cornering the sheep

Four more taxi companies are following ComfortDelgro’s fare hike and this leaves only one company not doing so, Prime Taxis. It has just announced that it will follow suit. And the taxi drivers knew that they are going to suffer a loss in income for doing so and they die die must increase.

See the wonderful logic of Sinkie taxi drivers. They don’t care about their income and don’t care if passengers would refuse to take taxis. They just have to raise their fares. But now, with all raising their fares, what choice have the sheep got. This is perfect free market at play. It is all market forces.

Why huh? Very difficult to understand their thinking. I don’t think anyone is putting a knife at their throats. The fare hike is definitely voluntary and no collusion or else CCS will come after them for anti competition. It is like volunteering for a pay cut.

What a great sacrifice. Taxi drivers are taking pay cuts by hiking their fares. It is like telling the passengers we don’t need more fares. We will raise fares knowing that income will be lower. There must be some goodness out of this act. It cannot be all bad and the taxi drivers all daft to go ahead. What is the goodness of it all?

Raise Fares by Comfort Delgro -> Share price up cos increase revenue. Revenue increase cos after much KPKB and initial resistance, sinkie will eventually Lan Lan take taxie one. Dun believe - > ERP is the classic case, so pappy learn from the behaviour of sinkies. Other cab companies know , copy cat hike fees won't kena slapped cos Lao Da increase , some more Lao Da gots Pappy backing, pappy will tacitly allow one. Now , all this means that sinkies hard earn money will oncce again flow back to the coffers... you know what ... pappy begining to sense CPF ponzi scheme may not last too long in it's present form so must squeeze more money. Sinkies see it coming but what can they do ? Diam Diam pay and pay rorrr

The cab companies could hire cheaper foreign labour to keep costs down, therefore keeping price rises in check... With the exception of the cost component of higher fuel costs.

However, to me... no cause for alarm. Spore cabs are still cheap for a 1st world city.

We get screwd on all sides , MRT, Bus , Cab , Car , COE , ERP, HDB... yet I see sinkie happily carry on with the daily lives. This is the beauty of La Lee's indoctrination since day 1. 忍。 忍。忍; 沉沉沉

Those who get oppressed and indoctrinated... Well sometimes shit happens.

However those who STAY oppressed and indoctrinated really deserve to suffer as painfully as inhumanly impossible so that the rest of us can LAUGH at their stupidity and throw SCORN and RIDICULE like pouring petrol onto a fire.

Fuck the victims!!

Where is your sense of justice ? Some choose to be victims but many refuse to. If 60% choose to be victimised , does the 40% have to be to ? The burden of shit should then be in the ratio of 6:4 .

Fuck justice. I'm into being entertained by the foibles and bad luck of others.

You have to be a sad dumb asshole if your intention is to find "justice " here.

What the fuck are you thinking, bitch?

IMADOG said...

I am not lookign for justice. I am asking where is your own sense of justice ? That's why you are not God as you claimed but only a dog.

This fare increase is like someone walking to the cliff and knows that he will fall over but quietly just follow the leader without complaining.

Hey asshole low-rent imitator (actually I should be flattered...) IMADOG, I have a doctrine of "personalised situational justice ".

Problem?
