More than a few conservatives are quaking in their boots over the prospect of Hillary Clinton, in their mind the devil incarnate, becoming our next president. To prevent such a tragedy, one patriotic website invites to you, the American people, to help them sponsor an IndyCar dressed in anti-Hillary livery at this…
In an election year, it feels like almost everything you encounter becomes politicized. There’s a reason for that — everything you encounter becomes politicized. You’d think the idea of whether or not you’d trust a car-robot to drive you around would be apolitical, but the results say something else.
On December 11, 1972, Apollo 17 touched down on the Moon. This was not only our final Moon landing, but the last time we left low Earth orbit. With the successful launch of the Orion capsule, NASA is finally poised to go further again. So it’s important to remember how we got to the Moon — and why we stopped going.
The political landscape is gearing up to be the most important it’s ever been, just like it does every four years - but for realsies this time. That’s why I think I should answer the most pressing question of the election season - if the presidential candidates were anthropomorphized automobiles, what would they be?
If Congress cannot approve a budget for 2016 by September 30, the end of this fiscal year, the US government will shut down. It’s a likely scenario since there are just a few more working days for lawmakers to come to an agreement and there’s no sign of that in sight. Here’s what you need to know about how a…
While local dealership ads tend to be pretty cheesy, they usually stay away from political controversy. This weekend, Donald Trump supporters took to social media demanding that an Los Angeles-area Nissan dealership face consequences after making commercial in which a Trump piñata is whacked to promote a sale.
Rick Perry is at it again, chasing his dreams of becoming the most powerful person and defacto leader of planet earth. This time around he’s armed with cool hipster glasses, a load of famous Navy SEALs and a C-130 Hercules campaign plane. Well, more like a campaign plane prop, as in one that won’t fly.
When Sally Ride died in 2012, her obituary noted a new fact that was widely picked up: that she was survived by her partner, Tam O'Shaughnessy. The first American woman in space suddenly became a more complicated figure. Now Lynn Sherr, a journalist and friend of Ride, has created a brilliant and eye-opening biography.
Less than 24 hours after an Amtrak train derailed in Philadelphia, killing at least seven and injuring 50 more, House Republicans voted to approve a funding cut to Amtrak’s budget by about a fifth.
This might come as a shock: The FBI has a secret air force of sorts that’s recently been buzzing over Baltimore. Or maybe it’s not a shock at all. The FBI’s been using aircraft for decades. These new planes, however, use surveillance equipment designed for warfare and capable of tracking innocent citizens. That’s bad.
See? Hillary Clinton’s van is way, way more A-Team than Mystery Machine. Check out that vent though. Nice vent. You think it’s got TV’s in there? It’s a Chevy Express conversion van, so it’s probably got a TV. And curtains. Gotta have curtains on your conversion van. Can’t run for President without…
Hillary Clinton, who is a person running for President of These United States, hopped in a van and rode to Iowa just after announcing her candidacy on Sunday. It’s a black GMC van, filled with political soldiers-of-fortune on the run, and the Clinton campaign has given it the only name that clearly fits. Scooby.
Why didn't we listen? The fourth season of The Rockford Files, arguably the greatest television show of all time, features a "futuristic" storyline about a terrible threat. What if a private corporation used computers to gather personal information on hundreds of millions of Americans? Could we trust them with that…
Here we have data on the best-selling vehicles by state in 2014, and how those states voted in the last election. Basically, this indicates a correlation between the popularity of trucks and voting Republican. But I think it looks more like trucks are taking over America.
Secretary of State John Kerry was forced to fly home to Washington, D.C. from Vienna aboard a commercial flight on Thursday, after his Air Force C-32 developed a leak in an auxiliary fuel tank. This was the fourth mechanical mishap for the plane this year.
Land use isn't something that usually gets brought up in high-profile political debates, but access to legal off-road trails is invariably a political issue. If you want to preserve that access, you've got to know who to vote for. That's where the Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) comes in.
I've certainly never seen a school bus sliced and re-welded to have a big, open flat section after the first three rows of seating, but that's exactly what a Georgian gubernatorial candidate seems to have built his campaign vehicle out of... toting a statue of a knight playing baseball, no less.
