It takes a special kind of stupid to barrel down an icy road during a snow storm.

Toward the latter part of the video, the speed of some of the vehicles is ridiculous. Don´t the Brits know that the white stuff is slippery?

Trucks on an interstate.....not lorries on a motorway.

I have gotten off of the interstate a couple of times when it got too bad to sanely continue. I learned this weather sense by being a small plane pilot for a few decades, understanding that sometimes it is too dangerous to continue.

No matter how inconvenient it may be to not arrive at your intended destination on time, being dead and never getting there is even more inconvenient.

President Donald Trump posthumously pardoned black boxer Jack Johnson on Wednesday after an intervention from ´Rocky´ actor Sylvester Stallone.

LONDON - Clarks, the British shoemaker and retailer, will return to large-scale manufacturing in the UK for the first time in over a decade when a new factory in southwest England joins plants in Vietnam and India in making its iconic Desert Boot. The 193-year-old firm, which operates in over 90 markets, said the new plant next to its headquarters in Street, Somerset, will have the capacity to make up to 300,000 pairs of Desert Boots a year and will give it shorter lead times.

More than two-thirds of Americans credit President Donald Trump for the country’s healthy economy, a new poll has revealed. The CBS News poll which was released on Sunday shows a sharp partisan divide, with Republicans more likely to give the president positive reviews while Democrats and Independents are not as complimentary. According to the survey, 35 per cent of Americans say Trump’s policies are ‘a great deal’ responsible for the economy. Around the same number - 33 per cent - say the president’s policies are ‘somewhat’ responsible. Nearly one-third say that Trump is either ‘not very’ or ‘not at all’ responsible for the strong

President Donald Trump demanded to know Sunday when special counsel Robert Mueller was going to ´STOP!´ probing into alleged Russian influence on the presidential election and turn his investigative power onto Hillary Clinton. In a long, bitter Twitter rant the president railed against the cost of the investigation, calling it a ´$20,000,000 Witch Hunt´ that has found ´no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren´t looking at the corruption in the Hillary Clinton Campaign.´ Trump´s words of rage echoed the remarks of his private attorney Rudy Giuliani, who also said the investigation was a waste of $20 million during an interview

There was a depressing familiarity both to Hamas’s suicide protest operation along Gaza’s border with Israel this week and to Israel’s response to it. Hamas’s jihadist regime in Gaza doesn’t have a lot of cards to play in its continuous war against the Jewish state. But, as we have been seeing since Hamas launched its campaign against the border six weeks ago, it does have one card, and no matter how often it plays that card, Israel can’t seem to figure out how to beat it. Hamas’s card is Western hostility to Israel. The Western media, along with the EU and most

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.

The NFL Players’ Association (NFLPA) on Wednesday criticized the league for its new national anthem policy. In a statement, the union said it would review the new policy and “challenge any aspect of it that is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement.” The union accused the league of contradicting its previous statements, and of ignoring players’ wishes in developing the new policy, which instructs that all team and league personnel should stand for the national anthem. “The NFL chose to not consult the union in the development of this new ‘policy,’” the union said in a statement. “NFL players have

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

The Democratic Party has no leader right now. No one. Former President Barack Obama is palling around with his billionaire, island-owning buddies. Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders is kicking back in one of his three houses (we’re guessing the big one on Lake Champlain). And the 20-some 2020 presidential wannabes are all jockeying for media attention (and cash, lots of cash). In such a void, that leaves just one person with the spotlight: the bitter, ever-angry, petty, vindictive Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton told the Democratic Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday that she would be a foundational part of the anti-Trump
