Communism or Taxi-Driver – You Be The Judge!

Just had to steal this and give it a local flavour.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Driving habits of communists [taxi-drivers], according to J. Edgar Hoover:

– Driving alternately at high and low rates of speed. [Singapore taxi-driver]

– Entering a heavily traveled intersection on a yellow light, hoping to lose any follower or cause an accident. [Singapore taxi-driver!]

– Turning corners at high rates of speed and stopping abruptly. [Singapore taxi-driver!]

– Suddenly leaving a car and walking hurriedly down a one-way street in the direction in which vehicle traffic is prohibited. [Beijing or Mumbai taxi-driver going for a piss! No, actually they just stand next to the car.]

– Entering a dark street in a residential area at night, making a sharp U-turn, cutting into a side alley, and extinguishing the car’s lights. [Hong Kong tax-driver about to rape their female passenger!]

– Driving to a rural area, taking a long walk in a field, then having another car meet them. [see previous!]

– Waiting until the last minute, then making a sharp left turn in front of oncoming traffic. [Singapore taxi-driver again!]

– Stopping at every filling station on the highway, walking around the car, always looking, then going on. [Yep, that’s a communist alright! Or someone with a noisy wheel bearing.]

“Always there is the fear of being followed,” he wrote in Masters of Deceit (1958). “One Party couple registered at a motel, then the husband parked the car several miles away. He walked back and climbed through a side window. Maybe in this way he would conceal his next night’s lodging!” [Singapore tax-driver and second wife in Jurong!]
