Reader comment on item: Don't Bring That Booze into My Taxi

Submitted by jeff olsen (United States), Oct 11, 2006 at 01:38

This is a very insulting idea. next they will not pick up folks not dressed right. However i think it is a good idea to mark muslim cabs. The mark will mean I have a choice to avoid supporting a muslim. it is a fact that muslims often send money to muslim charities. That money tends to fund terrorism, and other muslim causes. We don't want to support a mosque by supportin its members in any profession.

Id' never accept a ride in a muslim taxi. we have really degenerated down the rat hole as shown by the airport even considering such a discriminating idea. Then again, it would let me choose who I hire to drive me around based on my religious beliefs.

reverse the players, how about American drivers refusing to pick up muslims, guys with long beards, or women in burquas!

if it is good enough for them, it is good enough for us.

Any driver that refuses service for booze should be fired and his license revoked forever.
