The latest bizarre release from the Obama campaign is called The Life of Julia. This comic strip tells the story of a girl who grows up completely dependent on the taxpayers for everything from her pre-school to her health care and to her child rearing responsibilities. After looking over the government dependent life of Julia, I thought I'd put together my own account of what it was like to be harmed by the government nearly my entire life - my own The Life of John. This is not a composite situation, this is my real life. (I have updated this record to reflect where I am at as of today, July 20, 2012.)
John enrolls in pre-school. Finds it stupid and boring...cannot believe adults watch kids play musical chairs. (Three years old.)
|John, center. Pre-school strikes him as slow and |
boring compared to learning on his own.
|John is identified as a gifted student |
by the time he is in the sixth grade.
He is placed on a special math
track for gifted students.
John takes the SAT exam and scores the highest in his Hart High School graduating class. His family is poor and his living environment is over-crowded. Since his family cannot afford to hook up to the sewer line in the street, the backyard of the home is flooded with raw sewage. (17 years old.)

Even though he is poor, with high SAT scores, the best
schools turn him down because he is white.
John wins scholarships from the state of California and Occidental College to go to school. Affirmative action backed by the U.S. government keeps him from attending a better and more prestigious school because he is Armenian-American and not a member of a politically powerful minority group. (18 years old.) He gives the graduation speech at his high school. His brother Jim suggests that John peaked too early.

Back at Occidental for his senior year, John writes his college honors thesis on Marxist economics. John wins a scholarship to Cornell University. He is also asked to take out a loan. He protests and threatens not to attend Cornell unless they pay a full scholarship. Cornell University relents and John gets a full scholarship even though he is a young white guy. (22 years old.)
|John at Occidental College during his senior year - 1979.|
John goes back to visit his Marxist socialist friends at Occidental College including Caroline Boss and Hasan Chandoo. They introduce him to the young Barack Obama. John argues with young Obama and suggests that a Communist style revolution is unrealistic. Obama seems to agree. (23 years old.)
|John with radical college sweetheart |
in the summer of 1981.
John earns his M.A. degree from Cornell University. He has introduced a new explanation for the cause of welfare programs in the United States that disconfirms Marx’s hypothesis, disconfirms Piven and Cloward, and disrupts 40 years of political science knowledge. He has a hard time winning over his professors to his new ideas. John works as a gardener to make money to survive. (27 years old.)
|John teaching political science |
at the University of Oregon in 1986.
John is teaching at the number one liberal arts college in the nation – Williams College. He was blocked from applying to other schools because Cornell University sent less qualified African-American students to the major openings as larger universities. (29 years old.)
|John's identification card from |
Williams College in 1986.
John wins the William Anderson Award from the APSA for the best doctoral dissertation in the nation in his field. John looks for teaching jobs in political science in California. He comes in second to the less qualified minority candidate about nine times. He is very frustrated about affirmative action and the damage it has done to him over his life. (37 years old.)
|John's award-winning thesis |
is published as a book in 1994.
|John tries to alert mainstream media to |
Obama's radicalism, but no one seems to listen.
Over time, John published a number of "landmark" articles in an on-line magazine called American Thinker which slowly calls attention to the reality of President Obama's extraordinary ties to Marxists, socialists and Communists including the following articles: Meeting Young Obama, Even Republican Rejected Info About Obama's Past, and My White Girlfriend Inspired Barack Obama's Regina. Eventually, John becomes a writer with Breitbart.com and PJMedia his take on Obama's extremism is featured on the Rush Limbaugh radio program.
Meanwhile, John grows his company in the middle of a recession caused by the Democrat party when it gained full control of Congress in 2007. He hires new people and creates jobs while making his clients a ton of money. Obama wants to tax John more because he earns over $250,000 per year. (55 years old.)
|John visits a Native American |
dwelling in Anchorage, Alaska in 2011.
|One of John's favorite programs is |
the cult classic, The Prisoner TV Series.
|John meets Andrew Breitbart in 2011.|
John wishes he had done even more to break the news about Obama’s ideological extremism in 2008. (68 years old.)
