Meet 'Julia,' and Usher in '1984!'

Is it Any Coincidence that the Woman's Name is 'Julia?'

A Nanny State Update

I reported earlier how a child in a Staunton, Virginia was 'busted' for bringing a Wendy's lunch to school [1.]

Barack Obama presents: "The Life of Julia" [click to read]. Here is a 'womb to tomb' nanny state in all it's glory... provided you aren't aborted before you leave the womb! Here is government taking care of you at every stage of your life. Of course that life might just become shorter if you become too expensive to keep alive under 'Obamacare,' but I digress. This wonderful presentation produced by The Ministry of Truth -- (Minitrue, in Newspeak), makes it clear that "Big Brother is Watching (out for) You." That nasty old Mitt Romney will cut the programs that give you all the goodies.

"But the name Julia actually means “youthful, energetic.” It’s a great name that belongs to many self-governing women across America—who put themselves through school, marry, raise children, volunteer at the local church or charity, and run their own businesses (despite miles of red tape). It’s the responsibility of every citizen—not just the Julias—to resist the tyranny of the burecratic state and ensure that the ideal citizen (man or woman) remains a self-governing one." -- Julia Shaw (I am NOT making this up)!, writing for The Heritage foundation

After three years of Obama... Julia realizes she's being beat out for web designer jobs by guys who skip college and play a lot of video games. She decides to study finance instead and realizes Obama kept his "change" promise after all. Here's the change!

Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane.
27 times faster, it would be doing 1,755 MPH!
