By now we’ve all seen “The Life of Julia.” The story of cradle to grave socialism and complete and utter dependence in the form of Julia, a fictional woman who is utterly incompetent to do anything on her own. Paul Ryan accurately called it “creepy” which it is…not only because it shows how Obama views people (especially women) as helpless, stupid, morons who would be lost if not for the greatness that is Obama…and for the fact that Obama seems to be declaring himself Caesar for life (as he seems to be ruling by fiat from when Julia was 3 to still ruling without objection when Julia is 67). Also over at MSNBC one of their commentators said that we need Obama (again apparently for a lifetime dictatorship) because under a Romney/Ryan plan “she’d be in the grave by her mid-30’s”…this actually may be accurate given that Julia is portrayed as that special class of human being known as “Darwin Award Winner” and if she doesn’t have the cradle to grave socialist government to provide her every convenience in her life.
And while some have already made some great alternative versions to the Life of Julia (here and here and here)….I think it best to just take this head-on and detail all of the problems of Obama’s original piece of propaganda. Now there are a lot of factual errors, so this will have to be a multi part series of blogs.
Wow she enrolled in Head Start. Possibly one of the most useless wastes of taxpayer money ever conceived.
By the way those 200,000 fewer slots are 200,000 new government jobs not created under the Romney and Ryan plans…because we can’t afford to create 200,000 new jobs that do NOTHING!
First off the Ryan plan does not cut the program, it only cuts the growth. Now Romney, as far as I know, hasn’t suggested killing Head Start, although based on what he has said there exists the strong possibility that he will send the program to the states to be run from state capitals instead of from Washington (which can only lead to greater efficiency and more innovation…at the bare minimum it will cut the rampant fraud that plagues the worthless program). Further the Romney/Ryan vision give the private sector and private charity time to grow and fill the void in this field, offering the better services at lower costs to everyone.
A word to those libertarians that would kill this program outright. Now rather than hit Ron Paul at every turn let me just get this out here. Some conservatives would rather just kill Head Start, or any of the other entitlement programs that we have become dependant on, the fact of the matter is that just killing these massive programs would cause ripple effects through the national economy that can only be negative in the short run. These programs must be slowly torn apart, sent to the states, and privatized. However, many libertarians would kill the programs right out, to hell with the immediate negative repercussions that would actually harm the speed of long-term recovery. Ron Paul and his ilk wouldn’t care about economic common sense like that…no, let’s exist in a universe where actions and consequences don’t have any real connection. Yes, small government is the best answer in the long term, but just killing everything when we’re so deeply entrenched in an economy based on heavy entitlements would be as disastrous. Also may I say if you listen to Ron Paul long enough you realize that if he were given the chance to, he would make sure his plans were initiated, whether Congress approved them or not…so like Obama, Paul looks to be a dictator who rules by fiat and not by law. And as a conservative I’m supposed to want this kind of alternative to a real businessman like Romney? No thanks.
So other fun facts about what another 4 years of Obama would do to 3-year-old Julia.
Well it will be a miracle if she gets to make it to 3 or even gets out of the hospital, no not because of continued support of abortion on demand at the taxpayer’s expense…but because as people stream into hospitals and emergency rooms because of Obamacare (like they do in Canada and Europe) they will become breeding grounds for disease and as TB and MRSA become completely drug resistant and as medical care drops because doctors and nurses leave the field I fully expect the infant mortality rate to rise. Also expect less infant medical care since finding a pediatrician will become all but impossible.
And as the cost of everything goes up because Obama’s policies cause massive inflation and even further economic slow-down Julia can expect to eat worse, have fewer conveniences and see her parents less as both will have to work multiple jobs (if they can find them) just to make ends meet.
Oh and we didn’t mention food stamps! The way that program is growing we’ll all be on food stamps if we give Obama another term. Might have some mild thing to do with the government over regulating agriculture, forcing prices up by paying people to not grow things and even paying people to grow corn for ethanol (you know it only take 1.2 gallons of gas or ethanol to create one gallon of ethanol) which in turns skyrockets food prices (of course most of these programs a long line of presidents and congresses deserve blame, doesn’t mean Obama hasn’t done his fair share in this).
Great early childhood.
Up next let’s see how Obama’s policies will make her adolescence a hellhole.
