Yes, space. Are you ready for the craziness you're about to witness? Mind you, we've already seen the Fast and Furious family tow a ginormous safe with two Dodge Chargers , battle enemies on an endless runway, jump cars between skyscrapers, and lest we forget the onslaught of autonomous cars in New York despite most of them having manual controls. That said, how do you feel about a Pontiac Fiero space shuttle? That's the takeaway from this new three-minute trailer for Fast and Furious 9 . Of course, we saw the rocket-powered Fiero on the ground in the first trailer , but now the wild rumors about the Fast saga going to space are seemingly confirmed.

Hey, at least it's not a … [Read more...] about New Fast & Furious 9 Trailer Confirms Flying Fiero Headed To Space

The text tells many tales: the frayed coalition between the board room and the pick-up truck, hypocrisy, and more. What struck me most was the fundamental inaccuracy of nearly every assertion and premise on which McConnell built his remarks. Start with the simplest: that voting rights is “a highly controversial issue.” It’s not. Most everyone, except Republican officeholders, believes that barriers to citizens voting ought to be dismantled, not erected anew. ADVERTISEMENT Polls show Americans support voting rights legislation by over 50 points, with Republicans favoring it by 35 points and more. Specific elements of the voting … [Read more...] about Mellman: McConnell blasts big business stands
