Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be "Julia"
Townhall.com ^ | May 4, 2012 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 05/04/2012 3:07:16 AM PDT by Kaslin

Quick, hide under the covers. The nation's storyteller, Barack Obama, unveiled a frightening new fable on the Internet intended to scare women away from supporting fiscal conservatives in November. But as is increasingly common with Obama's social media propaganda initiatives, "The Life of Julia" immediately flopped.

Why? Because 1) self-sufficient women voters aren't as sheeple-ish as Democratic strategists make them out to be, 2) conservative activists are overtaking Obama's zombie army online, 3) non-delusional Americans don't want cradle-to-grave utopians turning their country into the next Greece or Spain, and 4) responsible grownups are getting sick and tired of radical Saul Alinsky-style tall tales from the progressive Pied Piper.

Using snazzy graphics and interactive slideshow features, BarackObama.com spins a glowing narrative of imaginary Julia's life from age 3 to 67. But "Julia" is a pathetic figment of the progressive imagination. She simply cannot function without the lifelong intervention of federal patriarchs.

Instead of two parents preparing her for school, Obama credits Head Start bureaucrats with ensuring that Julia is "ready to learn and succeed" in kindergarten.

Instead of individual teachers, private mentors, home-school organizers or charter school leaders, Obama extols his federal Race to the Top program for implementing the high school "classes she needs to do well" in college.

Instead of thrift-minded families who save for their own kids' higher educations (or who opt for non-college alternatives) and who encourage those kids to work in private-sector summer jobs, Obama praises his "opportunity tax credit" and Pell Grants for putting Julia through college.

Instead of acknowledging how costly Obamacare mandates have caused individual-market health care insurers to drop plans altogether, Obama promotes the government-manufactured umbilical cord tethering "children" like Julia to their parents' health care plans until age 26.

Instead of accepting that the costs and consequences of a woman's sexual choices should be a matter of personal responsibility, Big Daddy Obama heralds his religious liberty-crushing birth control/abortion mandate for allowing Julia to "focus on her work instead of worrying about her health."

Despite the fact that most private health care plans already covered maternal screenings, prenatal care and related screenings before Obamacare passed, the president attributes Julia's pregnancy well-being to the law.

And it's not local sovereignty or financial discipline that results in better schools for Julia's new son, "Zachary." Nope. It's Obama's "investments" in education and "programs like Race to the Top." (Is there nothing Race to the Top can't do?)

"Under President Obama," the campaign web feature then crows, "Julia starts her own web business. She qualifies for a Small Business Administration loan, giving her the money she needs to invest in her business. President Obama's tax cuts for small businesses like Julia's help her to get started. She's able to hire employees, creating new jobs in her town and helping to grow the local economy."

In the real world, according to Dun and Bradstreet, the SBA supported fewer than 62,000 small business loans: a measly 0.2 percent of the nation's 27.5 million small businesses. The vast majority of entrepreneurs get their start without the SBA's "help" and want only one thing: for Obama and his wealth-confiscators to leave them the heck alone.

As soon as Obama publicized "The Life of Julia" on the web, conservative activists swarmed Twitter to provide real-world counter-narratives. "I'm no Julia," one wrote. "As a small-business owner I'm being taxed to death. I need the (government) to get out of my way and let me make money." Another young conservative female tweeted: "As a woman business owner I'm offended that POTUS thinks I need him to survive and thrive." Conservative writer Kemberlee Kaye added: "What the Julia example really shows is the Democrat ideal. Complete and total reliance on the government."

My story? I've founded three web ventures over the past eight years without a penny of taxpayer money or government venture socialism. We free-market-centered small-business women can "grow the local economy" and raise our children and improve our schools just fine without the meddling, patriarchal hand of President Obama taking credit for our every last success.

After hyperventilating for months about the Republican "war on women," Democratic new-media gurus inadvertently have exposed the real Barack Obama: a chauvinistic control freak who would tether every last woman and child to his ever-expanding, budget-busting Nanny State.

Mamas, for the sake of your family's freedom and our republic's survival, don't let your babies grow up to be "Julia."

His story will resonate with every welfare “mom” out there on food stamps because welfare IS a business that those darlings know how to game.

I disagreed with the political message, of course. But the creepiest part of all to me was the “Under President Obama...” crap. Oh benevolent leader, thank you thank you thank you type message. It was CREEPY and I’m sure even those non-conservatives found it to be as well.

On Julia

Leach, leach some more, hang not your head
Your entitlements are still not withered yet
New money and clothes coming from the fed
Each a present from the taxpayers debt

O Julia! Let this day be
A celebration for all to see
And to all progressives allied in hate
Let this day be your forever fate

For healthcare paid on Julia’s receipt
From taxpayers she’ll never meet
Wanton tears of thanks will not appear
For it is the government’s duty clear

Whenas in silks and jewelry Julia goes
She thinks she deserves what she owns
That the liquefaction of her clothes
Are nothing but entitlements shown

As she casts her eyes on mirrored glass
The vibrating jewelry is hers for free
Julia still thinks she’s full of class
O how her glittering touches me

Alas, Julia was careless and took a fall
A rather nasty economic free for all
The wanton stuff that she had owned
Could all be kept, payment postponed

So ravished was she, it came to pass
As she kept watch in the mirrored glass
The feds stepped in and bailed her out
Progressive success, was there a doubt!

Julia has been wanton and too bold
For soon she’ll be left out in the cold
He benefactors simply will not win
But yet she won’t regret her sin

For you see, my Julia, dearest Julia came
From liberal parents, progressives same
This crap will end, when entitlement dies
Clasp your hands and pray for its demise

""Under President Obama, Julia decided to have a child."

They might want to change the wording on that.

Yep, the policies he’s touting are exactly what the dependent class thinks government is for.

However, just like the mysterious “disenfranchised voter”,
“Julia” is a non-existant entity.

Another one of Obama’s imaginary women? I wonder how it is that they chose the name Julia rather than something like Rosarita or Shanikwa? They don’t see that they are insulting women. If women substitute being dependent on a man for being dependent on a government, what was the point of it?

Goes back to Genesis 3, where part of the curse was that the woman would desire the man's role, but be subject to him anyway.

There are a whole lot of Julias roaming around out there. But they are busy getting high and watching Jerry Springer, not surfing the Obama 2012 website.

Bingo!!

I resent them using the name Julia that is my beautiful daughters name and she is nothing like this Julia. No head start, no child left behind or race to the top and very little in school loans we saved and payed cash. 5 years after graduating with a degree in Business marketing, she just got head hunted away from her current job with a $20,000 raise!!!

She is 26, not on our health care plan and next week will be making $70,000 a year as a digital media marketing specialists!! Now she just needs to find a boy that is not living with his parents and is not intimidated by this successful woman.

I hope she doesn’t find a “boy”.

Statistics show that 70% of today’s males are not “grown up” by age 30.

Find a Christian homeschooled young man who “has his fields prepared”. Prov 24:27

Diminishing the special relationship between men and women was what first struck me as wrong with this whole “Julia” thing when I heard Rush talk about it yesterday. The husband as head of the household is just out the window.

Satan, and his minions on the left, are conducting an all out, full frontal assault on the family as instituted by God.
