Do it to Julia
The Obama campaign (or maybe it's the Department of Health and Human Services -- but I repeat myself) has put online a site called "The Life of Julia." It chronicles, literally from cradle to grave, how Julia (presumably a composite character) can, with the help of The President, make her life better at every stage by relying on the Government.
Julia's life as a drone begins at age 3, when she enrolls in Head Start, and appears to end at age 67:
Julia retires. After years of contributing to Social Security, she receives monthly benefits that help her retire comfortably, without worrying that she'll run out of savings. This allows her to volunteer at a community garden.There's no mention at any stage why Julia should be the beneficiary of this largesse, let alone how it's to be paid for. The important thing, apparently, is that Julia gets free stuff, and therefore ought really to be appropriately grateful to the President.
It's good to be Julia.
[UPDATE] And we can't claim we weren't warned.
