To my Uber-using readers... if you do not support Drumph's anti-immigrant, refugee-killing, Islamophobic new policies you should consider whether switching from Uber to Lyft is something you can do.

In short:
- Uber worked to break a work-stoppage protest by taxi drivers at JFK airport over the detention of people with legal visas.
- Uber's CEO is a member of Trump's Policy Forum. (*)
- Lyft has pledged a million corporate dollars to the ACLU

(*) Presumably the Forum approves of this policy. I would believe that it was not consulted, because Steve Bannon doesn't seem to want to consult anyone before bull-in-a-chinashopping the country. However, remaining silent in the face of this action is complicity. Silence = Death, about which I'll have more to say later.
