Over on my other blog, I have a warning from William Shatner not to set yourself on fire frying a turkey.
Now, thanks to Dwight, we have a more local warning from The Round Rock Fire Department. Take it away, boys!
The turkey frying warning video is indeed a rich genre…

Expect slow blogging the rest of the week while I’m giving thanks by stuffing my face, so here’s Ronald Reagan’s 1986 Thanksgiving address.
“It’s people, not government, who create wealth and provide growth.”
Quite a contrast with current occupant of the White House…

I’m guessing a lot of people will be traveling or furiously cleaning their house today, so here’s a small pre-Thanksgiving LinkSwarm for the distracted:
Dear America: In case you didn’t notice in the ObamaCare meltdown, the economy is still screwed.
Current estimate for people losing their employer health insurance thanks to ObamaCare: 80 million.
Abbott Labs CEO: ObamaCare provides “clear incentives for companies to drop their health care plans and move people onto the exchanges.”
Noted right-wing white supremacists Al Sharpton and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter say the Knockout Game is real. (Hat tip Jammie Wearing Fool.
Israel is not the only country upset over Obama and Kerry’s Iranian cave-in; the Saudis are pissed, too.
The pro-Amnesty lobby thinks they can punish politicians for agreeing with the will of American voters. Fuzzy, feel-good “immigration reform” polls well right up until voters realize what they’ll actually get is illegal alien amnesty.
Leander ISD is bankrupting its children.

California rejects Obama’s ObamaCare “fix” of extending non-compliant policies:
Also includes Charles Krauthammer (yet again) bringng the smackdown. “It was a fraud and a sham from the very beginning.”

We interrupt our continuing series on the failures of ObamaCare to bring you a dollop of gun- and crime-related news:
It takes a special kind of super-genius to threaten to shoot gun-rights activists.
Though that does give me a chance to bring up the Recall Hudak Too campaign, to recall another gun-grabbing Colorado state senator.
San Francisco magazine ban challanged in court. (Hat tip: Alphecca.)
Requiring liability insurance for gun owners appears to be dead for now.
World’s first 3D printed metal gun. And they’re in Austin!
Meet Monticello, NY Mayor Gordon Jenkins. He’s a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns. He’s also been arrested for DWI and hitting a cop. Funny how so many people in favor of “gun control” can’t seem to practice self-control.
Another dead goblin.
Speaking of dead goblins: Armed homeowner gets the drop on intruder by pretending to be deaf and blind. Only problem with the story is that some details don’t match up: “The intruder lowered his weapon for a moment — long enough for Carlson to grab his own loaded Glock 9mm handgun.” Then: “‘I’ve never had my revolver out of my pocket in 50-some odd years,’ Carlson said by phone Friday evening.” To the best of my knowledge, Glock doesn’t make any revolvers, much less a 9mm. (There are 9mm revolvers, but they’re not particularly common.) Possibly the owner was speaking with colloquial inaccuracy, or was misquoted.
In Pierce County, Washington, an armed homeowner killed an intruder who drove his car through a metal gate, then broke into his house. Not exactly the perfect stealthy crime…
“Drunk Florida Man Tries to Use Taco as ID After His Car Catches Fire.”
Uh…noted without comment:

I actually forgot to add a bunch of ObamaCare links to yesterday’s LinkSwarm, so here they are along with some of newer vintage. Every day, the disaster get’s worse for Democrats (and the nation). It’s like a Hindenburg that never stops exploding.
More now think Obama bungled ObamaCare (63%) than now think Bush bungled Iraq (44%), or even at the Iraq war’s nadir of unpopularity (57%)
Why ObamaCare is on life-support.
How unpopular is #ObamaCare? Try “Fugitive Slave Act in Boston in 1858″ unpopular.
Speaking of unpopular, Obama’s ratings are off the chart bad. (Hat tip: Moe Lane.)
It took Obama to turn the American public libertarian. “Majority in U.S. Say Healthcare Not Gov’t Responsibility”.
Ace explains the difference between the Upton and Landrieu bills.
D.C. insurance commissioner fired 24 hours after questioning ObamaCare “fix.” (Also via Ace.)
The New Republic develops a case of the vapors over ObamaCare dooming big government.
Does Obama’s latest “ObamaCare means what I say it means” open him up for a Supreme Court challenge?
Number of successful #ObamaCare enrollees in NC: 1. Wait, they haven’t paid yet. 0.
Not even Obama is saying the ObamaCare website will be fixed by the December 1st deadline. Now it will be “improved”. I guess they’re changing the clip-art…

Some links to start your week with, ObamaCare still looming as topic one:
Chao before Congress: ObamaCare is hunky dory! Chao in internal memo the day before: we are so farked!
Over four million Americans have their policies cancelled thanks to ObamaCare.
Less than 50,000 sign up for ObamaCare.
One of the Democratic Senators running as hard as she can away from ObamaCare is Louisiana’s Mary Landrieu. Too bad she already embraced 100% accountability for it.
Race-baiting provided a shield that allowed Obama to fail.
And remember that calling Obama’s critics racist was a deliberate strategy by MSM members wanting to boost and protect Obama.
Don’t expect Obama to bounce back.
So is Politico actually covering the dysfunction within the Obama cabinet, or are they trying to shield a favorite from the stink of failure engulfing same?
A look back at Communist genocide in Ukraine.
Fitch gives Chicago bonds three steps, yes they gave them a three step cut toward the floor.
Michael Totten: “The case for walking away from Egypt and dusting our hands off is sound.”
Antisemitism getting worse in Europe says notorious Zionist shill, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights.
Islamists in Nigeria doing what they do best: murder children.
Sex crime investigator arrested for sex crime with a minor. That’s really cutting out the middleman…
How the holy hell can Amtrack lose one BILLION dollars on food service? You could feed Ethiopia on that!
Dwight has an EarthQuest update.
Julian Castro to force streetcars down the throats of San Antonians despite votes against them.
Another super-genus criminal. Just click the link and look at the pics.

James O’Keefe is exposing the “ObamaCare Navigators” the same way he exposed ACORN. Indeed, I strongly suspect they;’re the same people.
And both those videos were filmed in Texas.
Once again, both the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party seem remarkably comfortable aiding and abetting the willful defrauding of the American taxpayer. Just as they were for the Pigford scandal:
It’s obvious that more than just ObamaCare needs to be repealed…
