    The U.S. market is ripe for tech/entertainment companies who don't support radical leftism. I almost never use these services, but in the event I have to hitch a ride I'll pursue alternatives if they are available.

    Lyft must be doing better than I thought, and certainly not locally to me. I hear Uber mentioned all day. No one ever says anything about Lyft.

    Just flew out of Raleigh yesterday and got a ride to the airport by Lyft. Someone e mailed me a $10 off coupon so it cost me $6 and the cabs charge $50. The guy picks me up in a new Volvo and as we talk on the drive in he tells me he has a great job and does this on Sundays instead of watching talking heads on TV. He gets to meet new people and he's not bored at home. Guys about my age dressed and looked sharp.

    If I needed extra money I think it would be a fun way to earn some extra money.
    I like driving and feel like I drive pretty well. I think I would make a great Uber/Lyft driver.
