The Life of Julianne

The President's campaign has created The Life of Julia to tell the tale of a woman's life as it is affected by his policies.  Here is the story of Julianne, the conservative alternative to Julia.

The Life of Julianne

3 Years Old
Julianne's parents read to her every night.  They take time to play games with her that teach her how to count and how to solve problems. When they enroll her in kindergarten she's ready to learn and succeed.

17 Years Old
Julianne excels in school thanks to her parents' active involvement in her life. Her mother is a stay at home mom that carefully monitors Julianne's homework and grades throughout her scholastic tenure. Her father takes practice SAT tests with her and encourages her to work hard.

18 Years Old
Julianne's parents have put part of their yearly salary towards a college fund for her ever since she was born. They also encouraged her to get a part-time job in high school and required her to contribute part of her paycheck to the fund. As a result, Julianne can afford the college of her choice.

22 Years Old
During college, Julianne requires emergency surgery.  She is covered by her insurance, which she can afford because it is a low-premium package designed specifically for this kind of unexpected expense.  She pays for it with the part-time job she got the first week she arrived on campus.

23 Years Old
Julianne's parents instilled in her a strong work ethic, so Julianne graduates college at the top of her class. Now that she has graduated, the web development firm she has worked at part-time throughout college hires her on as a full-time employee, paying her a higher wage thanks to her degree and tenure.

25 Years Old
After graduation, Julianne only has one loan. It paid for the car she drives to work.  She pays a little extra on it every month so that it will be paid off faster.

27 Years Old
For the past four years, Julianne has worked at the web development firm.  She has been promoted thanks to her tenure and excellent work ethic, which earns her full health and dental benefits.  She takes care of herself, so that she does not need preventative care, and she can easily afford her birth control pills.

31 Years Old
Juilianne meets a nice young man at work. They fall in love and he proposes to her.  After they are married, they decide together to have a child.  Their combined salaries and health plans easily cover her care throughout her pregnancy.  They also begin saving for the expenses to come.

37 Years Old
Julianne and her husband had a child named Zack.  They learned from their parents' example and are very involved with Zack's life.  They have purchased a home in a very safe neighborhood with excellent public and private schools, which they researched prior to moving in.

42 Years Old
Now that her son is going to school full time, Julianne decides to start her own web design business.  She easily qualifies for a low-interest small business loan from her local bank, and is able to contribute half the start-up money from her savings.  She is able to hire employees and grow the local economy.

65 Years Old
Julianne's web business is very successful thanks to all the qualities that made her a great student and mother.  She is able to pay for her health care with the profit she makes from her business.

67 Years Old
Julianne finally retires, selling her web design business to her protege.  Her and her husband's combined savings allow them to enjoy a comfortable retirement.  Her work with the PTA made her very popular, so she is elected to the Town Council and works to improve her community. 


  1. You forgot the part about how this is all set in the future after the Great Financial Collapse of 2014. All Democrat and RINO politicians have been tarred & feathered--or worse--and the rebuilding of Washington D.C. after the Great Capitol Fire is nearly complete.

    1. My hope is it doesn't have to come to that. :-)

  2. Sounds like the way we are raising our daughters. Sad thing is I had to return to work this year.

    1. I'm sure your daughters will be all the better prepared for life as a result. You can use your return to work as a teachable moment as well, demonstrating sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.

  3. love it!!!!
    from a real Julianne!
    who is 51 and conservative.

  4. Meant to add, one of the best rebuttals to Obama's propaganda I have seen. I am linking your post to my blog.

    1. Thanks for the link! It is much appreciated!

  5. I think Julianne's good parents might have taught her abstinence until marriage...she wouldn't need birth control! And this respect for marriage would help her find that good man!

    1. I considered that, but I feel that parents, particularly now, must be more pragmatic about sex.

      In my opinion, they would have had a frank discussion about sex and its consequences with Julianne, explaining that it is best to wait for that special someone.

      But they also recognize desire for sex is very strong and sex itself can be wonderful recreation with someone trustworthy, both of which are likely to lead Julianne to experiment. As such, Julianne's mother gets her a prescription for birth control to be prepared for that eventuality.

  6. At what point do the horde of Occupiers lay siege to Julianne's home and business, demanding that she fork over her profits due to the fact that she had such unfair advantages? I mean, just look at her -- taught responsibility and hard work since before kindergarten? That's just patently unfair!

  7. My Julianne (real name) was homeschooled from 3rd grade through high school. She went to community college her last two year of HS, and used her college money to attend Le Cordon Bleu. After she finished her course, at 19, she began full time work as a cake decorator for an upscale shop. She has her own apt and pays all her own bills. She has no school debt.

  8. So Julianne isn't a stay at home mom is she? Nor do she and hubby have enough children to replace themselves, do they? Unless and until we figure out how to make those equations work this theory is a failure. My personal approach is to cut government (and transfer payments are where the money is btw). Socialism Security is nothing more than a tax on being young and benefits women much more than men due to the difference in longevity. Stop the generational theft! Further, we need to break the monopoly on credentialing medical professions and increase the supply so we get the fraction of national income spend on health care (currently 16%) down to something more like that of England, France or Canada. I am not arguing for socialized medicine. I AM arguing for a market in medical care, and we sure do not have that now. Another helpful thing to do would be to close our borders and encourage illegal immigrants to self-deport by implementing e-Verify. Americans can and will do "those" jobs when welfare is cut to the bone. I personally started working at 14 as a farm laborer. Others can do that too. Kind of puts school in a different light after you've spent a summer hoeing weeds in a vineyard. H1B visas can go away too.

  9. This is the ideal life of someone growing up in my generation before the 15 Trillion debt. It is a life that our children will never see for thanks to the writers of this fantasy it is gone and now only a fiction. Now is someone were lucky enough to live that life it would end at 68 or 70 because that is when the Obamacare panel cuts off medical assistance and that person dies for lack of it.
