Wonder what life would be like under “President” Hillary Clinton? It would be partying like it’s 1996.


For Hillary’s about to re-release her 10-year-old book “It Takes a Village,” just in time to prime herself for you know what. There won’t be anything new in the book, just the same old big-government bromides as Hillary declares over and over, “It takes a village to raise a child.” That’s an old African proverb that, translated into modern English, means, “It takes a big government to raise your child for you.” You know, taxpayer-subsiidized, bureaucrat-staffed day-care centers on every corner–just like in France!


Amanda B. Carpenter summarizes the book for Human Events Online:


“She suggested in her chapter ‘Kids Don’t Come With Instructions’ that ‘radio and television stations could broadcast childcare tips between programs, songs, and talk show diatribes – videos with scenes of common-sense baby care-how to burp an infant, what to do when soap gets in his eyes, how to make a baby with an earache comfortable – could be running continuously in doctors’ offices, clinics, hospitals, motor vehicle offices, or any place where people have to gather and wait.'”


Isn’t that a wonderful idea? Another of Hillary’s 1990s plans was to have the “village” censor the Internet:
 
“A year after the first release of ‘It Takes a Village,’ Hillary discussed the Internet’s role as a rumor mill in a White House press conference as First Lady. Of that, she said she ‘didn’t about a clue about what we’re going to do legally, regulatorily [sic], technologically’ about the Internet ‘there are a number of serious issues without any kind of editing or gate-keeping function [on the Internet].'”


Amanda comments:


“By slapping a new introduction on her tired package of failed liberal daydreams, Hillary is putting lipstick on the pig of the fact she’s devoid of any fresh ideas to take on the campaign trail.”


Of course, I’d be even more worried if Hillary actually dreamed up some fresh ideas.
