The continuing adventures of Barack Obama's favorite eyeless, mouthless government dependent
I'm temporarily handling the Iowahawk ping list while dighton is away.
Please let me know if you want to be added to or removed from the list.
Please ping me to Iowahawk articles. Thanks. :)
Outstanding — especially the ending.
Equally as good: when she gets a federal grant to become a pole-dancer, after getting fired for designing an Obama web-site which is mocked mercilessly on the internet.
“Your benefits are over by the trench, Julia.”.
Someone else noted the “Julia” is the female protagonist of Orwell’s book “1984”- the same sort of society that controlled its citizens from cradle to grave, and told them all to be thankful to Big Brother for it.
Iowahawk has got their number.
Iowahawk and Mark Steyn are two of my favorites
How do you parody that which is beyond parody? Iowahawk can!
Sickoflibs is doing a Julia’s Circle too - their all good!
Age 72, Julia is put to sleep for the good of society. SOYLENT GREEN IS MADE OF PEOPLE!!!!
“What crime does winston commit in the book 1984?”
I actually know Julia....... she’s president of the state AARP and volunteer leader of a local family gardening plot project.
The self esteem emanating from establishing the project is awesome
The usual non Motörhead iowahawk.
“Julia, Age 65...under President Obama...”
He’s still the president.
>Barack Obama’s favorite eyeless, mouthless government dependent <
Named Julia, for added ridicule.
Richter's work illustrates the fact that in every century throughout human history there have been those who, like Obama, envision a sort of utopian future in which persons like themselves get a shot at ruling the society by foolinig others into becoming dependent upon them and their "superior" wisdom (sarcasm).
When one looks around at what has happened to America already, and the degree to which the backward "forward" ideas of "progressives" have dimmed the light of liberty which once beamed from America, then Richter's pages take on new meaning.
Click on any of the segments and find something relevant to today's discussions. Please note that this exquisite bit of satire by Richter was written in 1893.
Coincidentally, in "The New Laws" section, he satirically comments that the "organ" (i. e., "Pravda") under the new order is called "Onward." How interesting is that?
Other sections describing family, work, etc., in a world centered around a philosophy devoid of religious or spiritual thought, as well as individual freedom, ought to stir deep feelings in the hearts of most who have memories of a different time.
Had most of us read this writer's work twenty years ago, it might not have the chilling effect it does today. After the last 3 years, however, the descriptions of life in a "socialistic future," as described, even in satirical terms, is current as today's news, and too realistic to be amusing.
Obama's "Julia" is not the kind of girl or woman who helped to form the new nation, forge her way through untamed wildernesses, maintain hearth and home, owning and managing businesses, teaching in schools which taught their students how to live in a free society, and truly partnering in "transforming" America from a small group of colonies using ancient tools to the greatest place of freedom and opportunity in all the world.
There is a long line of such strong and influential women who precede Julia, perhaps beginning with Abigail Adams, encourager and advisor/wife of the primary advocate for adoption of our Declaration of Independence and second President, and mother/teacher of John Quincy Adams, another early President.
No, "Julia" may be a good political tool for convincing women to voluntarily submit to slavery and dependency upon government by voting to extend the presidency of Obama and the so-called "progressives," but she does not represent a symbol of individual freedom, independent thought, and liberty for future generations of her kind.
Um. Mittens is on the run and has lackeys with him? And needs apprehended?
And there is Lloyd Nolan as the doctor. Lloyd was one of the great character actors of his era and a stong supporter of the USO during the war. Martha Raye could always count on Lloyd for a favor.
I'll bet she would look pretty sad and sorry standing next to Sally Hemmings, Jefferson's real slave.
Now, that would be an essay to see.
I'll just bet it is teh awesome. Does the project have a progressive name? Like the "Seventh Street Victoriously Accomplishing the Goals of the Five-Year Plan People's Communal Truck-Gardening Collective Project"?
Narodny slava! Long live Lenin and Stalin!
