(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.

Dichotomy: Twelfth Installment "Confusion"

Posted by Broliver "TheSquirrel" Stagnasty on September 25, 2014 at 8:00pm 3 Comments

Marivon wondered where Trancy had gone. She had appeared in the dance hall with Gavinar, looked around in astonishment and horror, cried out to leave… then the pair had disappeared. They were gone. She thought that she could feel Gavinar’s presence.  She thought that she could sense his direction. Putting those two items together, Marivon thought, she is probably somewhere north of here, far north probably. The mountains just weren’t high enough in the north towards Merebon in the coastal range. The mountains that they were in now hadn’t had snow for almost a month now. You had to travel across the Midsea to get to the Barrier Range Mountains to be able to have fresh snow on them.

“How are you doing, Nocs?” she said, the stream of her thoughts bringing her to rest upon the quick witted, young… scoundrel was the best word that she could think of to describe the young man.

“Since I been followin’ you? Not bad at all!” Came Nocs’ promt reply. “ The view back here is quite nice. But I do admit, I don’ care much for travellin’ through snow wi’out the prospect of an end in sight. I heard tell of a man from Clips runnin’ supplies ta miners in the mountains. This one day he was out and he got snow-bound, trapped in a whiteout. He dint eat for three days!”

“Will you be quiet, Nocs”, spurted Temon, unable to control his laughter. Even though the night had gone from mildly bad to worse to really horrible, there was an element of humor brought about by Nocs’ consistency of commentary: Sex and the female form, or what he knew of both; and food, of which his knowledge was quite extensive.  

After Trancy’s sudden appearance in the dance hall and subsequent abrupt disappearance, Temon had wanted to chase after her. In fact, he had jumped up to do just that, searching for discarded items of clothing, when Marivon’s…

Watch This Video, You Will Be Truly Amazed

I was checking something on You Tube and I spotted a link saying "9 Year blows away Judges and audience on 'Hollands Got Talent', so I clicked the link as I often do, because every once in a while we see something from a youngster that IS truly amazing.

Well, ...... I can tell you without question, this little girl, Amira Willighagen, just 9 years old, really did blow away the judges and audience by singing Puccini's ‘O mio babbino caro’ (Oh My Beloved Father). I was stunned, as were the judges, and as I believe you will be as you watch this little angel sing with a voice that I'm sure you'll agree was sent to us from heaven.

For some reason I have been unable to embed videos, so you will have to use [this link] to go the the video. The song starts at marker 2:42 (There is also a translation of the dialog available).

" JOYFUL SPIRIT "
