Motorists were stunned and moved when a man approached the blazing Thomas Fire in Ventura County and rescued a wild rabbit from the flames. You can watch the video here:

“Witnesses say this man pulled over to save a wild rabbit from flames along Highway 1 in Southern California as the massive #ThomasFire spreads toward Santa Barbara County,” ABC News reported. The man’s action moved people on social media. “Unnamed man pulls over in the middle of the wildfire in Ventura to save a rabbit. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ There is hope for humanity,” wrote one woman.

The Los Angeles Police Department also posted a moving photo of an animal rescue from some of the other wildfires raging in California. This rescue involved a cop and a cat.

“For some it might just be a cat. But to others it’s a friend, a loved one, a companion. The #LAPD has a motto, ‘To Protect and to Serve,’ and our officers have been displaying that in many ways during the #CreekFire & #SkirballFire,” wrote the LAPD. Here’s that photo:

Several dangerous wildfires were burning in California.The Creek Fire was only 5 percent contained. “#CreekFire [update] off Kagel Canyon Rd., north of Lake View Terrace (Los Angeles County) per @LACoFDPIO is now 12,605 acres and 5% contained,” CalFire reported on Twitter on the evening of December 7.

Then there was the Rye Fire. According to CalFire, “#RyeFire [update] off Rye Canyon Loop, west of Valencia (Los Angeles County) is now 7,000 acres and 10% contained.” The Thomas Fire was the largest. “#ThomasFire [update] Hwy 150 and Hwy 126, north of Santa Paula (Ventura County) is now 90,000 acres and 5% contained,” CalFire wrote.

Then there was the Skirball fire that shut down parts of the 405 freeway and is near the iconic Getty Center. “The brush fire ignited around 5 a.m. CT near 405 Freeway and Mulholland Drive in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. More than 350 firefighters were on the scene with helicopters hovering above as the so-called Skirball fire was 5 percent contained as of Wednesday night” December 7, reported ABC News. The network added, “Authorities have shut down northbound 405 for an “undetermined period” as a result of the blaze and ordered mandatory evacuations for parts of the affluent Bel-Air neighborhood, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.” About 46,000 people were facing evacuation orders as a result of the Skirball Fire, which had burned down at least four homes, according to KTLA-TV. The Getty Center was said to be in peril.

As for the most severe Thomas Fire, Cal Fire wrote, “The fire continues to burn actively with extreme rates of spread and long range spotting when pushed by winds. The fire is established on the north and east side of Hwy 150 and is also burning on the west side of Hwy 30. The fire has pushed northwest of Ventura and has reached the Hwy 101. Firefighters continue to work aggressively to protect life and property while working on control efforts around the fire perimeter.” A slew of mandatory and voluntary evacuations have resulted.

Chelsea Handler is one of the most hateful, vicious, evil, ugly women (inside and out) that has ever walked the planet. Just horrific. She must be filled with self hate to hate so many people with such venom. Poor girl. Probably can’t forgive herself from abortions she had. And that’s not said to be mean, by the way, Seriously, she is probably carrying such shame and guilt everytime she thinks, wow, I could be a MOM right now. Maybe a grandma. Enjoying my child and grandchildren. Living a life of love and sacrifice and beauty. But she chose the life of selfish choices, darkness and has no legacy now. So sad. I bet she would’ve had beautiful children. And been a great mom. Still not too late Chelsea, you could adopt. Seriously. And I bet that hard look in your eyes would change and it would soften your heart. Peace. We are all capable of being ugly and hateful when we are carrying such deep pain.

God Bless all the rescue people putting their own lives on the fire lines there. And those brave, kind, nameless people, who jump out of their cars into harms way, to rescue any form of wildlife. They are suffering so much more than people. Their only escape is if someone helps them. Thousands are dying. Just with the CA fires alone. A terrifying, nightmare of a death. God is showing His displeasure with the Sin so rampant there & in other areas of this country. The animals are innocent receipients of it. If people don’t WAKE UP & get a clue SOON, they will be paying the ultimate price. SEEK JESUS while there’s still time. Everything here will die. But your soul will live on forever. In which ever place YOU Choose for yourself. Please choose wisely. He waits for you to choose HIM.

She’s about as pathetically sick as that no brain red head who I refuse to even mention the scums name.
Seems so called ‘comedians’ are among the worst offenders for being mentally disturbed on a payroll. Little wonder why there’s so much hate & violence carried over from the BO reign of terror from the WH. These sickos just continue to fuel their Ignorance & the Fools of the public can’t get enough. Big price to pay, idiots. Whether you think so, or not.

FORMAL CLASSICAL ASCRIPTION OF IDIOS
.
.
The Greek morpheme, idios (from the Greek, ἴδιος… for one’s own, personal, private!) is an expression that has been much sorely abused and misused, over centuries of “pejorative ascriptions” by countless thoughtless individuals! The Greek “idios”, refers… PURELY!… to “one’s individuality”, or “one’s membership in the family of individuals”! And… to subsume this expression within the “pejorative ascriptions” that bend… yea, break!… the simple “linguistic morphemic narrative” for this word for “personal” and “individual”, is to impose an “informal colloquialism”– but indeed, slang!– that was never originally a part of the “FORMAL ASCRIPTION” of/ for this term!
.
For example, the Greek suffixal morphemic element “-sis”, pertains to the “state”/ “condition”/ “process” of something! And, when added to the term idios, we get the term, IDIOSIS… i.e., the “state”, “condition”, or “process” of “one’s own person” or “one’s own individuality”! And, when adding the adjectival suffixal morphemic element of idio-sis (i.e., forming “IDIO-TIC”!… for “the state/ condition/ process of one’s own person or one’s own individuality”!), or merely adding -ic to idio-(t) (and again, forming “IDIOT-IC”!… from ic-os, and ik-os!… for “pertaining to one’s own person or one’s own individuality”!), we’re confronted with a “contemporary pejorative ascription”, THAT HAS N-O-T-H-I-N-G T-O D-O WITH THE PROPER INTERPRETATION OF “IDIO-TIC”/ “IDIOT-IC!”! [The use -ic, a softened, and clipped version of “ik”, from ik-os, and the use -os, from ic-os and ik-os, referring to that which is “characteristic of”, or “abounding in”!]
.
According to the Bauer-Danker Lexicon, the noun ίδιωτής, meant (in ancient Greek), “civilian (ref Josephus Bell 2 178)”/ “private citizen (ref sb 3924 9 25)”! What we’ve recieved instead, however, is an imposed PEJORATIVE COLLOQUIAL/ SLANG ASCRIPTION for this word, that trashes a meaning that was never a part of the CLASSICAL FORMAL NEOLOGISM! And, compounding this etymologic confusion, are the problems associated with an attempt to add the Greek suffixal morphemic element, “etes (for ‘AGENT’, and ‘AGENCY’!)”, and its variants (i.e., -et, -ete, -tes, -te and -t!) to idio-(s)! And so… when we remove/ replace the suffixal morphemic character (s) from idios, and attempt to add the suffixal morphemic element -t, we are again confronted by this “PEJORATIVE ASCRIPTION”!… rather, than a NORMAL CLASSICAL ASCRIPTION that reads: “an agent of one’s own person, or individuality”, or, the “agency of one’s own person, or individuality”! And, again, although one can simply add the suffixal morphemic element -ic to idiot, doing so will result in the foolish imposition of a PEJORATIVE COLLOQUIAL/ SLANG that will render this otherwise useful term, useless!
.
This ABUSE of idios, has resulted in an unnecessary hurdle to linguists, and neologists, in their reasonable attempt to introduce other formal prefixal, infixal, and suffixal morphemic elements based upon this “CLASSIC FORMAL ROOT”!… and, has meant the loss of other possible Classic Formal Ascriptions! And which could have– would have!– fostered our historic and contemporary wisdom/ understanding/ knowledge of the notion of THE PERSON/ THE INDIVIDUAL! An utterly regrettable loss! And, all due– unfortunately– to the “preoccupation” with M-I-N-D-L-E-S-S P-E-J-O-R-A-T-I-V-E A-S-C-R-I-P-T-I-O-N-S, by I-L-L-I-T-E-R-A-T-E B-U-L-L-I-E-S! That is to say!… thus far!
