Lyft Defending Our Values

Defending Our Values


Hi Jim,

We created Lyft to be a model for the type of community we want our world to be: diverse, inclusive, and safe.

This weekend, Trump closed the country’s borders to refugees, immigrants, and even documented residents from around the world based on their country of origin. Banning people of a particular faith or creed, race or identity, sexuality or ethnicity, from entering the U.S. is antithetical to both Lyft’s and our nation’s core values. We stand firmly against these actions, and will not be silent on issues that threaten the values of our community.

We know this directly impacts many of our community members, their families, and friends. We stand with you, and are donating $1,000,000 over the next four years to the ACLU to defend our constitution. We ask that you continue to be there for each other – and together, continue proving the power of community.

Trump’s Education Secretary – God help us

“Betsy DeVos crashed and burned during confirmation hearings for Trumps Cabinet office of Education Secretary. I’m not sure what Betsy DeVos should be Secretary of, but it’s not Education maybe Secretary of one of Trump’s businesses would be a better fit for the Charter School advocate who folded under questions posed by Benrie Sanders, Al Franken, Chris Murphy and Elizabeth Warren. Only Trump’s most “AnthingTrumpSays” supporters can honestly watch Betsy DeVos fumble questions like what type of teaching do your prefer proficiency or growth? and come away thinking “Sure! This woman is very qualified to run the agency responsible for Education America.”

President Trump’s emotional stability!

Are the Republicans getting worried that Donald Trump is unstable? John Iadarola, Michael Shure, and Jimmy Dore, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why they’re concerned. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“President Donald Trump’s obsessions with defending his inauguration crowd size and embracing false “voter fraud” conspiracies has reportedly led some members of his own party to question his emotional well being.

Reporter Carl Bernstein went on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon this week, and he said that he’s been hearing from Republicans in Washington D.C. who are concerned about the president’s overall mental health.

“It is unlike anything that I have seen in 50 years of being a reporter,” said Bernstein, who first made his name by breaking stories on the Watergate scandal while working for the Washington Post. “I am hearing from Republicans, and other reporters are as well, that there is open discussion by members of the President of the United States’ own party about his emotional maturity, stability.”

Trump drew criticism even from media confidantes such as Joe Scarborough this past weekend for his speech at the CIA in which he boasted repeatedly about his inauguration’s crowd size, while at the same time sending out Press Secretary Sean Spicer to deliver an angry news conference whose sole purpose was to defend the size of the Trump inauguration’s crowds.”

Uber has updated their app

  I had a package to ship out to Germany.  I had it ready yesterday but the mailman would not take it.  He said that he could not pickup international mail! 
  So today my son and I used an Uber to go to the post office with the package.  The people at the post office, of course, said that the mail man can and should have picked up the package for us. 
We had the Uber driver wait for us and then had him take us to What-A-Burger and we got some food and then back home.

  I think I can stay home until the 1st now.  On the 1st I have a doctor’s appointment.

  Uber has updated their app:

New taxes from the Republicans

It looks like President Donald Trump and the Republicans want new taxes! 
It looks like President Trump wants a 20% tax on imports from Mexico to pay for the $15 billion dollar wall that he wants to build!

Who do you think is going to pay that new tax on Mexico?  You and I will pay it.

If the tax causes problems for Mexico then who will need to bail them out?  You and I will have to do it.  We can not have Mexico fail. 
They are on our border.  If they have problems we will have major problems. 

President Trump had no idea what he is doing.  You have money in the stock market?  Better take it out and put it under your mattress.

I am glad I am not a UK police officer

I have seen a number of videos of UK police officers doing their job.  I sure would not want to be a UK police officer. 
Yes, we have major problems in the US with police but God what the UK officers have to put up with is something else.

One thing I have noticed is that they do not handcuff someone unless they are forced to do it.  They will be arresting someone and the last thing they do is handcuff them. 

If anyone thinks the guy in the video below should not have had a taser used on him ..well there is something wrong with you.
He refused to tell the police his name.  He yelled at them .. moved towards the officers .. waved his arms at them .. He walked away from the officers and then was fighting the officers.

ShowMe Video for 01/17/2017

  I am so far behind ..

I got two reviews that I need to do …  I forgot to take my meds last night and so busy that I just now took my morning meds at 1 PM.  I should have taken the AM meds about 9 AM.
I sold a HT on eBay and need to check it out before I send it.  I want to make sure the firmware is updated and need to check out that the DTML keys work on the radio.  Some older HTs had problems.  But the new firmware takes care of the problem.

I just got my monthly pill container filled. That takes half an hour to do.

My son just got his new laptop.  It is an Inspiron 15 7000 gaming laptop. It has a GTX1050 video card.  Yes he got a laptop.  I has 8 GB of ram and a 1 TB hard drive and a 8 GB SSD drive.  I wanted to do a unboxing of it.  But I was to busy.  He did show it to me.  It looks like a great laptop.  It even has a lighted keyboard.
