Gotta Be Tailgating?

You breed dogs to sell in Ontario; you drive like a freak in Cato. Your chattel incessantly hump legs; I watched you incessantly hump bumpers. You make those who purchase your dogs promise not to spay or neuter right away; your need for speed right now endangers lives on the highway.

“Gotta Be Goldens,” you’re […]

House Democrats Fail To Block Amendment Banning License Plate Surveillance Cameras By Department of Transportation

Why are so many congressional Democrats consistently opposed to legislation that would protect Americans from unconstitutional search and seizure by automatic license plate readers, and why do most congressional Republicans support the legislation, when they have demonstrated such strong contempt for constitutional rights in other occasions? […]

The Economies Of Wars And Walkers

On September 11, 2001, 2,999 people were killed in a terrorist attack. In response to those deaths, the United States has spent trillions of dollars to engage in three separate wars, in addition to bombings from robotic aircraft around the world, has instituted draconian search regimes and a practically omnipresent electronic surveillance system, and set […]

The Priorities Of Congressman Cook

Kids Can't Sit Still? Maybe You Can Blame Your Car.

If think you have hyperactive kids, well, much of that hyperactivity is probably a natural part of their childhood. If their active behavior isn’t appropriate to the setting, you might think about changing the setting.

There are some cases of hyperactivity among children, however, that are far outside the norm. There are children who consistently […]

The Most Lazy Movie Poster Ever

All roads lead to this?!? Lead to what? To a road, with a guy, and a car?!?

I notice that the car is in the middle of a road that appears to lead nowhere. Roads lead to more roads? Cars lead to more cars?

I realize it’s the sixth movie in the superficial Fast and […]

Share That Bike

There’s a new, low-investment way for people who have thought about transitioning some of their transportation from car to bicycle to try it out: Bike sharing. […]

Obama Says Americans Expect The Government To Track Them Everywhere They Drive

President Obama has sent lawyers from the Department of Justice to argue in court that the federal government should have the right to place GPS tracking devices on the cars of as many Americans as it wants, without getting a search warrant. […]

Kill Your Car

Cars are doing us more harm than good.

Cars pollute the air and water. They clutter up the land with roadways and parking lots.

Cars encourage not just the burning of fossil fuels, but drilling, too, resulting in significant ecological degradation.

Cars fill our neighborhoods with noise. They slam into pedestrians and bicyclists, making it […]
