By now I’m sure most of you have met Julia. If not, you can find her at
Evidence suggests that Julia began her life in a test tube since there is no record of a mother, father, sister or brother ever being a part of her life. Like Julia, her son seems to have been conceived in a petri dish as a boyfriend or husband was also missing from Julia’s life. The one constant in Julia’s life however is Barack Obama and the giant dark shadow of government hovering overhead. Julia is the progressive’s ideal woman living from birth to death in Obama’s utopia.
During Julia’s life she had a variety of choices depending upon her particular need. A few of her options were: 12 programs providing food aid; 10 housing assistance programs; 10 programs funding social services; 9 educational assistance programs; 8 programs providing cash assistance; 8 vocational training programs; 7 medical assistance programs; 3 energy and utility assistance programs; and, 2 child care and child development programs. In addition to these and many others is Social Security, Medicare, unemployment insurance and workmen’s compensation. Julia felt secure knowing that throughout her life these programs would be there for her.
Some of us may have a guardian angel, but Julia had the outstretched arms of an all-knowing, all-caring bureaucratic leviathan. To be honest, Julia’s life is rather creepy; but even more disturbing is that this is the life wished for all of us by the progressive caretakers who share Barack Obama’s vision. When will this nightmare end, or are we doomed to a life of Julia? Vote November 6, 2012. Your life may depend on it!
