Ashton Kutcher, the 35-year-old actor and ex-husband of actress Demi Moore, has never been considered a poster child for the "family values crowd," but at the Teen Choice Awards two weeks ago, he could have easily passed for one.
Following screams from young female fans in the audience, Kutcher silenced them with a motivational message that bordered on inspiration. He told them: "I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work. ... 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."
With R-rated romantic comedies featuring such wholesome themes as casual sex among acquaintances, marital infidelity, oral sex jokes, friends with benefits, and random hooking up, the Hollywood assault on America's traditional values is alive and well.
2011 is the unofficial year of the raunchy Hollywood movie in which loyalty, sexual self-control, and marital commitment are fodder for comedy and where the idea of f**k buddies reigns supreme. "Love and Other Drugs," "No Strings Attached," "Hall Pass," and "Friends with Benefits" are four Hollywood creations in late 2010 and early 2011 in which attractive 20-somethings were cast as glorified sluts and man-whores, leading mostly consequence-free lives.
Has outspoken liberal Ashton Kutcher been secretly reading The Heritage Foundation's research on the importance of missile defense and the fallout from an EMP attack? Has some of the self-reliance and rugged individualism of Sarah Palin crept into his brain? The guy who's essentially famous for being famous is suddenly not so sure the federal government can protect him in the lurch:
The movie star and producer...fears a major U.S. energy meltdown is nigh and he's trying to get super fit so he can deal with the chaos that will follow a blackout or worse.
Sing it.... "I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony, I feel Obama in the air he makes us all friendly, he's the real thing" .... OK, maybe that wonderful sentiment can't last. But, as Andrew Breitbart reports, this emotional high has only lasted the Obamagassed Ashton Kutcher a mere 10 days. 10 measly days was all the love-your-neighbor that Mr. Demi Moore could take.
Not long ago, Kutcher was involved in a video of sycophantic Obamaists from Hollyweird where he "pledged" his fealty to a politician. He also pledged to be a more civil fellow saying that he would "always represent my country with pride, dignity and honesty." I'd suggest that this young man should go look some of those words up in a dictionary somewhere because with the uncivil tirade he spewed out against his neighbor for early morning construction noise Ashie was being neither neighborly nor dignified.
