If you are into cars you probably know the
name Paul Walker from the “Fast and Furious”
movies. If you aren’t into cars, the movies
involved street racing.

Walker was killed earlier today when the
Porsche he was a passenger in crashed and
burst into flames in Valencia, California.

They were attending a charity event for
for his ‘Reach Out Worldwide’ organization.
Both Walker and the driver were killed.
Paul Walker was 40 years old.

He was working on another sequel in the
movie franchise at the time of his death.
We don’t know if racing was involved in
the crash.

Reminds one of James Dean, a sad day indeed.

CHILLING FIRST AMENDMENT

Most people have heard of the First Amendment without understanding it or its history. At this point in time the First Amendment is under assault. Some of these assaults have become vitriolic and devolved into personal attacks. A little history is needed to show how and why we have the First Amendment.

Many of the first settlers to this part of the New World that we now know as the USA came from Great Britain where the King was both head of state and head of the Church of England. At that time adherents to other dominations were ostracized and persecuted which motivated them to flee to seek freedom to worship God according to their denominational doctrine. Some came to this part of the New World directly, some came by way Holland or other countries seeking the freedom to worship God…

Kmart’s ‘GIF-ing out’ Christmas ad annoys nearly everyone

Originally posted on Twitchy:

Considering the resurgent popularity of GIFs —those low-res looping computer graphics — you’d suspect that Kmart might be on to something with its new Christmas ad, featuring a happy couple “GIF-ing out” in their driveway. Instead, reaction on social media has been anything but kind.

No, you’re not.

Bombshell on Benghazi: Look who’s coming to terror

American envoy Chris Stevens paid with his life inBenghazi after he tried to retrieve U.S. weapons given to the al-Qaeda terrorist network, a new report says.

James and JoAnne Moriarty, two Americans serving on a non-governmental organization fact-finding mission, told the Voice of Russia that Stevens initially transferred weapons, including surface-to-air missiles, to radical Islamists in Libya to help overthrow dictator Moammar Gaddafi.

Al-Qaida, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group and Ansar al-Sharia — which actually act as one — reportedly assisted NATO and the United States in toppling the Tripoli regime.

Once Gaddafi was out of the way, the alliance turned its attention to Syria. Stevens, James Moriarty asserted, was instrumental in sending weapons to the terrorists in Syria with the help of Abdelhakim Belhadj, leader of the Islamist al-Watan Party and former head of Tripoli Military Council.

But then Stevens tried to retake possession of the weapons, including 20,000 MANPAD surface-to-air missiles, from the terrorist network. That didn’t go over well.

Citing an inside source, James Moriarty recounted that “one of the tribal spies in Libya was serving dinner to Chris Stevens and the personal representative of the prime minister of Turkey” the night Stevens was assassinated at the Benghazi compound.

CBS News correspondent Mark Knoller took to Twitter to report on President Obama’s Small Business Saturday shopping trip.

Obama picked up over a dozen books, but Knoller noticed something glaringly absent from the list provided by the White House.

Funny ’cause it’s oh-so-true! Obama can always borrow “Web Sites for Dummies”…

This revamped HealthCare.gov homepage is hilarious [Photoshop]

Originally posted on Twitchy:

Today is the administration’s self-imposed deadline to roll out a properly functioning HealthCare.gov website. Is the site now free of those “glitches” that kept so many from being able to sign up? Now that poor HealthCare.gov Splash Page Stock Photo Girl has long gone missing, Caleb Howe has the perfect replacement model.

By the way, Howe certainly doesn’t need Photoshop to lower the boom on the president.

Alabama vs. Auburn 2013 final score: Tigers stun Bama on last-second field goal return

There are singular moments in sports that make you stop and appreciate just how amazing sports can be. With one second left in the fourth quarter and overtime imminent, Alabama lined up for a 57-yard field goal. What followed was arguably the craziest ending in college football history, as Auburn returned the missed field goal 100 yards with no time left to win the Iron Bowl over top-ranked Alabama, 34-28.

Alabama looked shaky early, one of the few times in the Saban era that this team has shown obvious nerves. Those nerves looked justified, as Nick Marshall opened the scoring for Auburn with a blazing 45-yard touchdown run. Everything looked great for Auburn, but Alabama followed up that touchdown with 21 straight points in the second quarter on two touchdown passes from quarterback AJ McCarron and a touchdown run by T.J. Yeldon. Auburn was able to pull back within a score before halftime, though, on a one-yard touchdown rush by Tre Mason that made it 21-14 at the break.
