(CNN) -- It's not often that I agree with Sarah Palin. But when she comes around to a liberal point of view on an issue, that is to be noted with praise. So, good for you, Sarah, for flip-flopping on the issue of hard work.

Palin took to Facebook recently to praise the remarks of liberal actor Ashton Kutcher, who has in the past donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats and participated in a star-studded video pledging, "to serve our President (Obama) and all mankind."

So how did this Hollywood liberal become the darling of Sarah Palin? By speaking out on behalf of a truly liberal value: hard work.

"I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work," Kutcher said in a speech he gave at the Teen Choice Awards. "I've 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 steppingstone to my next job, and I never quit my job until I had my next job."

Up until after this point this was a great thing to hear, and a perfect message to our young people..  Then the author weighed in with his spin, as his credentials then became very evident.

Editor's note: Paul Begala, a Democratic strategist and CNN political contributor, was a political consultant for Bill Clinton's presidential campaign in 1992 and was counselor to Clinton in the White House.

If you want to see that you'll have to go to the link.  I refuse to give his partisan opinion by the exploitation of Kuchars words, the light of day.

Everyone has valid knowledge about something Mike.  If I want to learn how to be a successful actor, I'll ask Kutcher any time.  In politics, not so much.

My Coldest Winter ... Ever!

Posted by Jerry Verlinger on March 1, 2015 at 9:00am 5 Comments

This is by far the coldest winter I have ever been through, and I’ve been through 75 of them. Although I can’t vouch for the first three or four because I don’t remember too much about them. Actually I've only been through 74 ½ of them. This one ain’t over yet, and the last 3-4 years have brought us some pretty nasty snow storms in March.

Now snow I can deal with, I live in the greater Lake George resort area about 100 miles below the Canadian border, and snow not only makes beautiful…

   A few months ago i heard an interesting interview with the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne.  He was ranting and raving about a Latin Psychedelic funk band that combines Latin, Jazz, Psychedelic Funk and heavy metal.  Brown Out put out an album last year "Brown Out Presents Brown Sabbath", fusing Black Sabbath classics with a Latin Twist.  After hearing the interview i searched them on youtube and became an instant fan.  Last night i took the wife and my two teens and one of their…

5 Strategies for Positively Dealing with Challenging Personalities

Posted by Robert in Ohio on February 26, 2015 at 6:30pm 0 Comments

I came across this article (excerpt below) on dealing with difficult employee personality types and it jumped out that it transcended the workplace was applicable even here on News Talkers.  I am sure we can see others in these categories, perhaps several categories ---- I am equally positive that others see me and others in the same categories in which we place them.

ISIS Look A likes.

This group has a leader called a commander.  All gun toting NRA members most likely, close very religious family so it is portrayed for media.  Men all look like heavily bearded ISIS members. Women have religious dress restrictions controlled by the Commander.  All Male members are now extremely rich and now wear beards when they never did before.  ISIS? ISIL? Not as I can prove, But openly portray Muslim look but its just Duck Dynasty playing at NRA extremism perhaps? Perhaps in following…
