While I’ve used both Uber and Lyft over the last couple of years, after reading how Uber banned guns for both their drivers and their riders after an Uber driver in Chicago used his lawful concealed weapon to stop a nutjob who was shooting into a crowd of people, I switched exclusively to Lyft.
Then I read that Lyft has a similar anti-Second Amendment policy.
What’s a good gun rights fella to do?
Then, over the weekend, taxis in New York staged a strike at JFK airport in New York to protest President Donald Trump’s temporary ban on travel into the United States from seven terrorist-infected countries.
In response, Uber announced it was suspending its “surge” pricing to help passengers stranded by the taxicab protest. But after getting flak from libs, the company later announced its decision wasn’t in support of the president’s executive order.
Shortly after that, Lyft weighed in on the anti-Trump/pro-terrorist brouhaha and issued its own version of “fake news”…
“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.”
In addition to outright lying about Trump’s executive order, Lyft also announced it was donating $1 million to the uber-liberal ACLU.
Uber’s no angel, but Lyft is pure political evil for conservatives. Screw you, Lyft. App deleted.

P.S. When a group of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) sufferers in Iowa threatened to burn a pair of American flags in protest of… something, a FedEx driver named Matt Uhrin grabbed a fire extinguisher and saved the flags from immolation. If you haven’t seen the video yet, click here.
In the old days, before the Era of Trump, such an employee would probably have been disciplined, if not fired, for being so politically incorrect. But not this time and not by FedEx.
“We have reviewed the matter in Iowa City involving driver Matt Uhrin,” the company said in a statement on Saturday. “He remains a FedEx employee & we have no plans to change his status.”
Thank you, Matt. And thank you, FedEx.

FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“The president’s job to protect the people of the United States of America and I feel that’s what he’s doing. Terrorism is a problem and something needs to be done if we can’t find out who’s coming into this country, it’s going to be a Trojan horse and they’re going to come in, along with all the other refugees.” – Marc Fucarile, a Boston Marathon bombing survivor who lost a leg in that 2013 terrorist attack
