Ideals 2

alcohol_bottlesw300h196.jpg not allowed I have been laying in bed since my neck surgery and I am appalled that a person coming back to Minnesota has to face the taxi cab tribunal, if they are carrying any type of alcohol on them wether they have had it to drink or in their suitcase.

Certain taxi cab drivers will not take you as their fare, they call it religious freedom but when does the employee set the rules for the employer as to whom they carry as a fare. If the drivers have a problem then start up their own company that states no alcohol allowed of any kind right on the sides of the vehicles.

Religious freedoms means that you should be tolerant of anyones belifiefs and not enforce yours when you are working for the public. Let the Minneapolis airport commission list the taxi cab company’s that employ the no alcohol drivers and those that have been ticketed several times or more for excessive speeding.

Coming back from a vacation you should not have to spend an hour just getting a taxi cab but that is what it will be in the near future courtsey of the religious chiefs that are now dictating whom they will carry as fares from the airport. The taxis drivers serve the public if they do not like what the public is doing then they need to find a different job.

Is not what the taxi drivers are now doing the one thing they are upset about and that is profiling, they can not have it boths ways, our society is based on freedoms not imposing one values on the rest of society.
