We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
In Los Angeles the kids started bringing hamburgers to school when the district tried serving "healthier fare." Now the nannies of food persuasion have taken a longer view. From an article by Lisa Aliferis in The California Report:
"But a kindergartener who’s never seen anything but black bean burgers and salads in the cafeteria is going to be a much easier sell on healthier foods throughout his school years. And that young child is our only hope if we’re going to reverse current trends in obesity and poor lifestyle habits among our nation’s children.
At 22, "During college, Julia undergoes surgery" which, of course, would have been completely impossible w/o Obama loving care to allow her to stay on her parents insurance plan.
We then see Julia complete her education and get a job thanks to Obama and then, at 31, "Julia decides to have a child." Naturally she again benefits from Obama's benevolent largesse.
It is not hard to guess what these two particular vignettes in the Life Of Julia are about. They are about "choice". I read this immediately as Julia's surgery being an abortion and her later choice being (male-less) motherhood.
Oprah is one shrewd 1%-er. (Funny that the OWS doesn't Occupy Oprah.) Her fledgling TV network is bleeding money but apparently none of it is her OWN(tm). She certainly has a knack for getting other people to pay for attaching themselves to her name. Just like those giveaways on her old TV show. She's famous for having given away free cars, each worth nearly $30K, to her audience, except that none of the cost came out of her billion dollar fortune. The cost of that publicity stunt was paid by Pontiac, which donated the cars (that was in 2004, before the Government Motors bailout you and I paid for).
