Rabbi condemns surrendering your car


They want to strip individuality from us all

Unlike most people, I do my research when it comes to various “social” programs that exist around the globe – and how the government wants to get their hands on everything we do these days. The cries heard around the country for “Smaller Government” is not a coincidence.

I’ve been harping on the Hertz on Demand Connect Corner Cars since they launched – because the city of Hoboken is curiously doing all the work for Hertz – which is a commercial corporation. The city is spending taxpayer dollars to print fliers, purchasing advertising space and using city employee time for their “Surrender your Permit” program in hopes that you’ll do so to take part in the “share the germs” hourly rental car program.

** Side note: There are actually less parking spots now in Hoboken – story on that later.

Anyway – there was an excellent episode on Glenn Beck last month, where they talked about the “Tower of Babel” (from the book of Genesis) – and how that was practically a blue-print of what NOT to do to your citizens. I’m not going to elaborate too much – but the concept was that King Nimrod (yes, that’s where the phrase came from) wanted to make everyone into indistinguishable replicas of one another – but for some fictitious “common good.” Whereas God, thinks individuality and freedom were better ideas.

Rabbi Daniel Lapin was a guest of the show, and cited modern day examples – such as “surrendering your car” to be lumped into a common (and easily manipulated) socialist system…

Note: I’ve said repeatedly that I don’t have anything against Hertz or “hourly rental cars.” In fact, it can be viewed as an alternative to the costly, complicated old-school way of renting a car. However, it does not have to be on the street. Zip Cars were here, in private garages across the city for over 5 years. Furthermore, since Hertz is a corporate establishment, our city (the government) should play no role in this process.

Each year, more and more individuals are waking up to what’s happening around us. Don’t wait too long, or it’ll be way too late for you!

The same people complained that there were too many bike racks in Hoboken.

Why do people need government to provide them with rent a cars? People should be smart enough to make their own contract with a private corporation for renting a car? This is a wallking town. Alot of stores and food places offer delivery. There is the hop shuttle and NJ transit buses. You can use a shopping cart for the supermarket. There’s already so much traffic in this city. We should encourage more walking and less driving within city limits.

well it is clear that we don’t have a city of pioneers here…

I can’t believe my tax dollars spent on “glossy” mail advertizing from City Hall on this lame as program. The ultimate in elected official blowing sunshine and rainbows up your rear. As if the city did not already have zipcar.

Can’t wait to see these Hertz cars once a big snow storm rolls in.

The city is trying to coerce residents to get rid of their cars with subtle persuasion. It’s obvious to me.

The City’s coercion obvious to me too. It astounds me that anyone would fall for it and fail to see the writing on the wall. Maybe people actually want to surrender their individuality and be controlled by the government? It is starting to seem that way… How pathetic.[quote comment=”200496″]The city is trying to coerce residents to get rid of their cars with subtle persuasion. It’s obvious to me.[/quote]
