This is a Human Issue: Zao Stands with Refugees – Zao.is

We stand with our immigrant neighbors, our refugee neighbors-not because they have a positive effect on our bottom line, but because they are human and worth the inherent dignity of humanity Like many of my fellow Americans, I’ve found myself a bit dumbstruck over the events that have unfolded from our nation’s executive branch over the recent weeks.

STATEMENT BY SENATORS McCAIN & GRAHAM ON EXECUTIVE ORDER ON IMMIGRATION – Press Releases – United States Senator John McCain

Make no mistake – this is a Muslim ban

I am profoundly saddened and angered by the broad discrimination sanctioned last night by the Trump administration against refugees - those fleeing violence and terrorism within their country - and immigrants from Muslim-majority countries.

But what’s best for one person or company is not always the best choice for another – and to further complicate things, financial bias is often the primary motivator when 3rd parties make their ‘best of’ lists.

President Trump’s Insecure Android

Lost amid the swirling insanity of the Trump administration’s first week, are the reports of the President’s continued insistence on using his Android phone (a Galaxy S3 or perhaps S4). This is, to put it bluntly, asking for a disaster. President Trump’s continued use of a dangerously insecure, out-of-date Android device should cause real panic.
