Well everyone, we made it. Thanksgiving is over, as Hanukkah continues, the combo of which will not happen for another 77,000 years. We know for sure we won’t be here then, but what we can do is make sure the next several generations is free from the leftism which is crippling our nation. As you all know, I’m grateful every day I wake up in this amazing country. And to top that off, every day I get to talk with you, and work through all sorts of media to, hopefully, help our mission to take our country back from the Big Smug Jerky bureaucracy Obama keeps trying to jam down our throats.
So, Monday is December 2! Another week to begin again our commitment to everything that matters. And the things that matter– our ability to enjoy our lives with family and friends — requires a government that’s off our backs, a free market, and the ability to keep as much of the fruits of our labor as possible. We take it one day at a time and never lose focus, while making sure we laugh as often as possible. Of course it’s preferable we’re laughing at Obama, but laughing in general is good, too 🙂
I do hope you all have had a lovely weekend so far. I’m sad my alma mater USC lost to the Bruins on Saturday, but there will be another chance to redeem ourselves. Please do comment here and let us know what you’ve been up to. I know the weather has been tough for many of you as well. I hope you’re taking it easy, being careful and reflecting on all the precious things in life.
Speaking of which, topping the news is the death of actor Paul Walker. A rising star, Walker, most famous for starring in the “Fast & Furious” films, was killed in a horrible car accident, along with another man. There’s really nothing left of the Porsche he was in. I know people tend to think they’re immortal, but this should be a reminder to everyone to take nothing for granted and that life is precious. He was just 40 years old. Here’s a photo of the wreck. You can’t even tell it’s a car. There’s a tarp over a portion of the mangled twist of metal. I’m guessing that’s where the two victims were located.

Actor Paul Walker, who gained fame as an undercover detective in the hugely successful “The Fast and the Furious” franchise, was killed Saturday in a car accident in Valencia, his representatives confirmed.
The single vehicle crash occurred about 3:30 p.m. in the 28300 block of Rye Canyon Loop. Deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s station and the Los Angeles County Fire Department arrived to find a vehicle engulfed in flames. Two people in the vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene.
The cause of the accident is under investigation, said sheriff’s Deputy Kim Manatt.
According to a statement on his Twitter account, Walker, 40, was attending a charity event to aid Filipino victims of Typhoon Haiyan for his organization Reach Out Worldwide, formed in 2010 as a quick response first-aid organization.
“It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide,” the statement read. “He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news.”
If you’ve got a person in your life who thinks speeding is a blast, or that nothing can ever harm them, make sure they see this story and the pictures of the wreck. It should be a wakeup call. Pray for that young man and his family.
