Hu's On First!

***Saw this on Facebook, cracked me up!



***Someone in Hollywood gets it!

Ellen must have been nearly wetting her pants when Ashton Kutcher used his appearance on Wednesday’s episode of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ to talk about American’s entitlement mentality and the celebrity propaganda machine.
Ashton wowed the world when he made an inspiring speech at the Teen Choice Awards advising people to work hard instead of seeking fame and fortune.
His appearance on Ellen elaborates on that speech and sheds light on why he decided to take a moment to be brutally honest.
Kutcher called out the propaganda machine around fame and celebrity that makes our youth want to be well-known, famous, and rich instead of actually creating something.
“All of that’s kind of crap,” said Kutcher, “working hard and being generous and thoughtful and smart is a path to a better life.”
He also said he has heard many American’s say they want to be famous and would not be caught dead working a typical job and that is beneath them. In response Kutcher said, “I think the only thing that can be below you is to not have a job”

***Wow...and I thought my office looked bad.

 A Dallas house was so jammed with clutter that it took two days before the homeowner's body was finally discovered amid the debris, authorities said Friday.
Only after city officials brought in a contractor to remove piles of debris from the home did cadaver dogs help crews in protective suits locate the 67-year-old man Thursday.
At one point during the search, emergency workers who had looked through multiple piles of clutter without finding the man cut holes in the roof to gain access through the attic. The debris reached to the ceiling in some areas.



 Poor guy.

***Four ways not to spend your tax refund.  REFUND??!! Don't I wish. We haven't gotten the bad news yet from our accountant, but expect it any day now.

***John Bolton: American foreign policy defined by weakness. That's what happens when you elect an empty suit.

President Obama's inability to stop Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine is just the latest example of a failing foreign policy, says John Bolton, the former United States ambassador to the United Nations under George W. Bush.

Obama said in a speech Wednesday at the European Union that the Ukraine crisis was not the start of another Cold War, and that "Russia leads no bloc of nations."

"You know in Moscow they must listen to that and simply shake their heads, and not just in Moscow, in Beijing, in Tehran, in Pyongyang and in terrorist camps all around the world," Bolton, currently senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

What is also unsettling are the lengths to which his liberal sycophants will go to to rationalize his weakness and ineptness.

***NCAA roundup - the Dayton Flyers are still in it! Quite a story.

***Wow. I really want to take a cruise someday!



***I Dream of Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair. C'mon, you know you've sung this before...
by Stephen Foster
 
I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair,
Borne, like a vapor, on the summer air;
I see her tripping where the bright streams play,
Happy as the daisies that dance on her way.

Many were the wild notes her merry voice would pour,
Many were the blithe birds that warbled them o'er:
Oh! I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair,
Floating, like a vapor, on the soft summer air.

I long for Jeanie with the daydawn smile,
Radiant in gladness, warm with winning guile;
I hear her melodies, like joys gone by,
Sighing round my heart o'er the fond hopes that die:

Sighing like the night wind and sobbing like the rain,
Wailing for the lost one that comes not again:
Oh! I long for Jeanie, and my heart bows low,
Never more to find her where the bright waters flow.

I sigh for Jeanie, but her light form strayed
Far from the fond hearts round her native glade;
Her smiles have vanished and her sweet songs flown,
Flitting like the dreams that have cheered us and gone.

Now the nodding wild flowers may wither on the shore
While her gentle fingers will cull them no more:
Oh! I sigh for Jeanie with the light brown hair,
Floating, like a vapor, on the soft summer air.
