I have a post at the PJ Tatler about how the men in Julia’s life will fare in the Obama regime.
Julia was the name of the female character in 1984. If Big Brother would have had more control over Julia’s sexuality, they would not have had a problem controlling Winston.
Giving up Julia is what O’Brien wanted from Winston all along. His spirit broken, Winston is released to the outside world. He meets Julia but no longer feels anything for her. He has accepted the Party entirely and has learned to love Big Brother.
Well, Julia, Hope you enjoyed Head Start, and all the rest, because payback time is coming.
According to a US TREASURY website page, “HISTORY OF THE PUBLIC DEBT”, the public debt is $15,692,368,000, and your share and mine runs to $50,000 and change, and is growing by $5,000 a year.
Did you learn Algebra, Julia? No? Well I’ll run a regression curve for you on the growth of debt since 2006.. The debt-growth curve is looking perpendicular, dear, not so good.
Things are really out of control and it is all Bush’s fault! But wait, until 2006, when the Dems won both houses, public debt was $8 trillion. It is now $15 trillion. Good work, Dems!
Julia, the money the president spent on you was borrowed from China, Japan and Saudi Arabia. Right now we are able to pay them the interest, and they kindly roll over the principal.
However, things don’t look so good for 10 or 20 years out, when the Chinese and Japanese and Saudis may object to us stiffing them on interest or even principal. Who will be America’s best negotiators? Let’s send the crack Obama team that pummelled GM’s feckless secured creditors down to 10 cents on the dollar.
Let’s assume our negotiators fail. Our creditors want 100 cents on the dollar. What if our creditors force us into austerity? Think Greece and the EU troika. Could be unpleasant. Google: “Retired Greek pharmacist commits suicide”. for over a million hits. Mr. Dimitris Christoulas’ suicide note said he refused to root in a garbage dump for food.
Julia, since we elect grown-ups, we should give them a chance to prevent this mess from happening, But, just in case we run short on money to pay China, Japan, and Saudi Arabia, what might they settle for instead of the cash? Property: We have Hawaii and Alaska, plus the military bases across the Pacific! Minerals? Wahoo – We could offer up our coal and oil rights in lieu of cash! Not enough? Well, we have brainy people. They want workers, serfs? Well, OK, what ages and how many?
