As Steve posted on Wednesday, Governor Palin took to Facebook to praise the speech Ashton Kutcher delivered recently to America’s youth: She wrote:
Looks like the Duck Dynasty dudes aren’t the only ones speaking truth to power lately. Hollywood star Ashton Kutcher gave a heartfelt speech about hard work at this week’s “Teen Choice Awards”. It’s worth the time to click (here: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/bristolpalin/2013/08/the-value-of-work-and-jeans/) on Bristol’s blog where she links the speech. In this, Ashton says:
”I believe that opportunity looks a lot like work. When I was 13 I had my first job with Dad carrying shingles to the roof, and then I got a job washing dishes at a restaurant, and then I got a job in a grocery store deli, and then I got a job in a factory sweeping Cheerio dust of the ground. And I never had a job in my life that I was better than. I was always just lucky to have a job. And every job I had was a stepping stone to my next job, and I never quit my job until I had my next job. And so opportunities look a lot like work.”
Good to see his Iowa roots shining through all that Hollywood glitter! On our trips to Iowa our family has always admired the strong work ethic and dedication to freedom that those who live there in the heartland hold dear. As they say — you can take the boy out of Iowa, but you can’t take Iowa out of the boy.
In a reflection of the sad state of affairs in Washington, one mainstream media newspaper even had to acknowledge, “Who knows, maybe Ashton Kutcher was able to do something America’s political leadership can’t do, which is to talk honestly to America’s youth about the dignity of work.” Wake up, Washington, and kudos to Ashton for speaking out for America’s youth.
