Hillary's National Service Reserve

Hillary Clinton on Friday called for the creation of a National Service Reserve, an initiative she said would allow 5 million mostly young people to serve their cities and states on a wide array of projects on a part-time basis.

Speaking in grand terms and invoking her Methodist faith, the Democratic presidential nominee said the issue of service to others is among those "closest to my heart" and would be "a vital aspect of my presidency."

She pledged to expand the efforts of other presidents who launched enduring service initiatives, including the Peace Corps, a project of former president John F. Kennedy, and AmeriCorps, one of the "proudest achievements" of her husband, Bill Clinton, when he was president.

You can read the rest @

I actually think it's a good idea.

But this is not new, and it's not even her idea. Several versions of such a thing have been proposed before, notably by Rahm Emanuel in his book The Plan, in which it was called "universal citizen service".

As far as service to others being close to Hillary's heart - does she even have one? What is more striking about Hillary is how many others provide service to her:

  • those who shred or alter her emails
  • those who take the Fifth for her
  • those who feed her classified information via unauthorized channels
  • those who help her cheat at the debates
  • those who rigged the primaries for her
  • those who constantly bash Trump while covering up her crimes foibles
  • those who pay bribes make donations to the Clinton Foundation
  • those who cover up the crimes oversights of the Clinton Foundation

Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
