Skip to comments.'Julia': Cradle to grave under Obama rule
Posted on 05/06/2012 11:41:14 AM PDT by TurboZamboni
In the competition for the creepiest campaign material of 2012, we may already have a winner. It is The Life of Julia, the Obama reelection teams cartoon chronicle of a fictional woman who is dependent on government at every step of her life.
The Obama campaign revives the concept of cradle to grave as it highlights Obama-supported programs that take care of Julia from age 3 to her retirement at age 67.

There isn't any subtlety's or nuance to this, from cradle to grave, politicians buy votes with promising ever more entitlements.
This is really Orwellian. “Surrender to the state, we will care for you.”
Julia is a ward of the state.. Obama’s theme is For Ward. So what’s the surprise?
I think that it has been pointed out before here that there is a good chance that “Julia” would not make it to childbirth because of the abortion policies of pres Zer0.
Shouldn’t this have been named Sandra??......................Fluke
Just saw it this a.m. Have never seen a creepier, scarier thing in my LIFE.
And what happens if Julie veers off the “path” and refuses to take advantage of everything provided to her by our Dear Leader? It is the gulags for Julia? What if she decides to worship something or someone other than Obama?
If Julia’s Dad had A JOB, Julia wouldn’t need the Husband of the State, would she?
‘Julia is a ward of the state.. Obamas theme is For Ward. So whats the surprise?”
Age 72: Dissident Julia is recycled into new food product: Soylent Grey. . .
I’m not Julia!

every time Obama opens His Mouth...
He Proves Conservatives Right.
Julia is the Welfare State.
I used to think that Julia should have named her kid "Trayvon", but "Ward" works out so much better!
That was great sarcasm. Best served with a bit of truth and this has that.
If you haven't done so previously, please check out the following link to Eugen Richter's 1893 satire entitled, "Pictures of the Socialistic Future,".
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. Again, 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, forging her way through untamed wildernesses, maintaining hearth and home, owning and managing businesses, teaching in schools, helping their students learn 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.
How many Democrats who are being targeted by this message really expect Obama to be President more than 60 years in order to keep conferring benefits on this fictitious woman? He'd have to live to well over 100 to be around when Julia is retirement age. I don't know how old his typical white grandmother was when she died in 2008, but his relatives do not appear to be particularly long-lived. Of course being attacked by a tree while he was driving a car prematurely ended his father's life.
Yep but things won’t be so bad for julia she will get free food all of her life. She gets issued a gunny sack and an empty 3 pound coffee can. Every wednesday julia and her friends gather together around the town square. The government grain truck pulls into the middle of the town square. It off loads the grain, and the mad dash begins whereupon julia and the rest of the townsfolk all scramble to get as much grain as they can into their gunny sacks.
Alllll is well.
Next week same time same station same thing.
