I fully accept that the problems associated with Uber are widespread societal issues in many cases; banning Uber in India will not alleviate the rape problem.  I think that the only way to help with that, or any of these issues, is to treat Uber like it is, a business, and ensure that it is safe, legal, and works for the best interest of its consumers.

it is safe, legal, and working in the best interest of consumers so I guess this one will pass.

While I recognize that I haven't been engaged with the Senate, I have done my best to remain active during some particularly busy days for me, and I believe this impeachment effort by Griffin to be nothing more than a publicity stunt.

I strongly believe that no impeachable offenses were committed by me and the Vice-President, and I humbly ask the Senate to reject these articles of impeachment.

Griffin the Red Monster, huh?

What are we even talking about in here anymore? Nobody gives a hoot what you do in your car, Napoleon. We're taking about for-profit businesses, not a friendly car pool. I'm not trying to be snippy, but let's try to not stray too far from the bill in hand.
The drivers are not employees of the company.

I dont know how many times I need to ask: what regulations are being repealed that you consider necessary? You honestly seem unfamiliar with ridesharing...

I'm not trying to ban Uber or services like it, that's not my intention through this, but I think it's nessecary to regulate this developing industry. That's the extent of my concerns.

what regulations are necessary?

It's a different take on an industry that already exists -- private rides and chauffeurs. The only difference is instead of scheduling the ride via phone, you request it via an app.

so when I give my friend a ride, what regulations are necessary?

Do you want your friend to smoke in the car?

maybe, maybe not. I certainly do NOT want you telling me he cant though.
(The apps dont allow smoking but that should be up to the service or the driver)

I would refer everyone to the events transpiring in Sydney where Uber quadrupled their base rate to $100 for the area surrounding the hostage situation. Could you imagine something happening like that during the events of the bombing of the Boston Marathon, for example? Secondly, I'm sure you have all seen the allegations in India and Chicago of Uber drivers raping passengers; without attempting to act as a court of law here, surely this compromises part of the company's prized confidence in their drivers.

In response to these incidents, I am opposed to the bill.

rape is illegal regardless of whether or not one is using a ridesharing app. Its also not Uber's responsibility to evacuate people during emergencies. Its a small convenience for people who are drunk or might be without their car for a few days.

He is blatantly disrespecting our noble constitution and obviously doesnt care to participate in legislative debates. This is an egregious and unforgivable transgression and remember, he put sticks in office. I say burn this mfer down.

Edit- adjectives I wanted to use but couldnt fit

abhorrent
repulsive
sickening
shameful
treasonous
bin Laden-esque
pathetic

I'm sure you're laughing at having wrote that, and I'm laughing too.

thank you.

2. Seattle Seahawks
5. Arizona Cardinals

You need to pay attention to standings and schedules, my friend.

If Seattle beats Arizona next week and/or they end up with the same record, Seattle wins the division.

But Seattle has to go to Arizona to win that game. Not saying it's impossible to do, but playing on the road is especially difficult when there's playoff implications.

not if you have the best defense in the league against a third string rookie...
