The law forbids people from using the public bathrooms of the opposite sex in government buildings.

In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

    A power grab by the Environmental Protection Agency threatens to crash Americas amateur car-racing industry without putting so much as a dent in climate change, warns the chairman of the House Space, Science and Technology Committee. The EPAs move to regulate emissions on non-road racing vehicles contradicted agency administrator Gina McCarthys earlier testimony that the EPA did not have authority over non-road race cars and motorcycles. EPA officials said they are clarifying emissions law, yet the Clean Air Act has long exempted non-road vehicles used in competition. The agency has not made a similar move against NASCAR or other professional...

    **SNIP** The Specialty Equipment Market Association says the companies it represents support a $1.4 billion industry, selling car racing products and aftermarket vehicle parts. The business association contends that the EPA rule under consideration would make it illegal for businesses to sell car parts intended to convert traditional production engines to engines that dont meet emissions standards. The EPA intends to finalize its proposed regulations this summer and it has reopened public comment on the issue. Three other congressmen have signed McHenry's bill: U.S. Reps. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, Bill Posey, R-Fla., and Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y. Sens. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.,...

Union leaders at an air conditioner factory in Indianapolis threatened with losing 1,400 jobs to Mexico said on Tuesday the plants owner expects to pay Mexican workers $3 an hour compared to an average of more than $20 an hour for the U.S. workers.

    Nye recently penned an op-ed for digital culture magazine Aeon, in which he argues that NASCAR should make the switch to electric-powered vehicles. In his mind, NASCAR is a celebration of "old tech," one that reinforces the automotive status quo and hinders progress from a social standpoint. And while the environmental benefits of an industry-wide change are obvious, the former mechanical engineer sees another benefit of the EV switch. "Just think what an electric race would be like," Nye wrote. "It would be faster, and quiet. You could talk to the person next to you. The drivers could probably hear...

Newman, who races the No. 31 Caterpillar Chevrolet in the Sprint Cup Series, remotely operated a D11T Dozer from a trailer at the Phoenix International Raceway on November 13. The 230,000 pound machine (one of the largest in the world) was at the Caterpillar Tinaja Demonstration & Learning Center in Tucson, Arizona. While the concept seems like...

    Korbin Forrister, a 22-year-old race car driver from Georgia, has developed an interest in politics the past couple of years. At the Camping World Truck Series race Wednesday night at Eldora Speedway, he will combine those two passions. Forrister, who didn't have a sponsor for the race, decided to decal the SS Green Light Racing No. 08 truck with "Trump For President" -- the first but likely not the last time NASCAR drivers will carry messaging for candidates in the 2016 presidential election. Donald Trump's presidential campaign is not paying for nor does it have any connection to the truck...

On June 16, 2015, when Donald Trump announced that he’s entering the crowded race to become the 2016 Republican presidential nominee, he made some remarks about illegal immigration which brought the wrath of the PC Left on his head. Trump said: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.

This morning edition of the San Francisco Chronicle website (which reflects the newspaper’s front page to some extent) gives prominent placement to Trump’s contention that the murder of Kathryn Steinle shows that he’s right. And the digital-only SFGate site gives him even more prominent play, using an unflattering picture. update:...

    If we’re going to purge “The Dukes of Hazzard,” we might as well get Confederate flags out of American car culture entirely, I guess.For once, I think this is more than mindless corporate piggybacking on a social trend. According to a study done last year, NASCAR has a whiter audience than any other major American sport. Yes, really: At 94 percent, it’s even whiter than the NHL’s (slightly) and the PGA’s. Having the rebel flag in the infield won’t help change that. “As members of the NASCAR industry, we join NASCAR in the desire to make our events among...
