It may have appeared that I cut out early yesterday, but what really happened was that I put together a long, semi-complicated [and I thought, important] post -- but for some reason, it disappeared before I got it published. poof. gone. Very Discouraging.
I may try to recreate it today; that will depend first, on how well this coffee works and then, what else happens today. The story of Obama's war on coal is not going away, so I can pick it up again at any point.
In the meantime, I seem to have missed all the hilarity over Obama's "composite girlfriend" described in one of his books. I understand from friends that she was being named on twitter: Rhoda Serfdom, Ivana Taxya, Karla Marx, Ada Dog, Chris Matthews... and yes, Barack Obama.
So now the Obama Campaign has gotten into the act. Erick Erickson explains:
... Barack Obama is rolling out a new composite girl in his life named Julia.
On Obama’s website, people can walk through Julia’s life from birth to death panel. For the duration of her sixty some odd years, President Obama remains President.
We get to see how Julia benefits from President Obama’s policies.
Over at Human Events, my colleague David Harsanyi writes “Who the hell is ‘Julia,’ and why am I paying for her whole life?” It’s a fair question.
According to Obama’s campaign website, someone enrolls Julia into a Head Start program. The government provides her with contraception until she decides to have a child. She has no parents. She has no husband. She suckles the teet of government her whole life, from delivery room to death panel.
By her mid-twenties, Julia is a litigious member of the workforce suing for equal wages while hard working Americans subsidize her. She has her fatherless child and for twenty years drops off the map. That’s the most curious part — that and the fact that this paragon of Obama’s liberal America has no documented abortions and was not herself aborted.
James Taranto at the Wall Street Journal points out “[t]hat period includes the typical peak earning years–the time at which, assuming Julia is gainfully employed, she will be paying the biggest price for “Obama’s” generosity.” We know nothing of her time during those key years. Perhaps they were of little consequence because her whole adult working life was spent paying for the benefits of those who came after her.
That is the key. There is no mention of cost, no mention of debt, and no mention of tax burden for Julia. She receives everything and gives nothing.
What is Julia’s fair share?
And so on...
What I want to know is why Julia is portrayed as a typical White person. Isn't that RACIST?
