Florida currently has more concealed-carry permit holders than any other state, with 1,269,021 issued as of May 14, 2014

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."
- A Nation Of Cowards, by Jeffrey R. Snyder

NY taxi drivers should have to pass a test like "the knowledge" that we have in London. I'm sick of having to give the cabbies directions and almost ending up in fights with drivers whenever I hit JFK.

Get me in a cab then!

On a previous jaunt I had a cabbie threaten to to stop suddenly and have me thrown through the front window just because I had the audacity to tell him a short cut (he complained I was trying to control his life!).

Another one couldn't even take me to my destination 3 blocks away, so I told him to stop halfway and refused to pay anything.

I could write a book .

Year 2016, average cost of GPS navigation device is 100-150$. Why can't they enforce GPS units in Cabs? Especially in NYC, where the number of international tourists are highest in the whole nation.

My experience? The GPS navi system in NY is rubbish. I gave the cabbie an address , he input it into the system, and I ended up at a completely different place.
