***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.

***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.
