Clinton: Create Public Service Academy [a totally all-paid education to young men and women who....]
BREITBART ^

Posted on 07/28/2007 11:54:31 AM PDT by Sub-Driver

Clinton: Create Public Service Academy Jul 28 02:38 PM US/Eastern By PAGE IVEY Associated Press Writer COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton told college Democrats on Saturday she would create a national academy to train public servants.

"I'm going to be asking a new generation to serve," she said. "I think just like our military academies, we need to give a totally all-paid education to young men and women who will serve their country in a public service position."

An older woman carrying a sign that said "She doesn't care, all she wants is the power" yelled at Clinton while the New York senator was speaking in a ballroom on the University of South Carolina campus. Students attending the College Democrats of America convention shouted down the woman down and pushed her from the room.

"One of the things I love about politics, you never know what the day will bring," Clinton said.

Several people at the convention said they were inspired by Clinton's speech and her experience in public service after law school.

Clinton was an intern with the Children's Defense Fund, which advocates for minority, poor and disabled children.

"I loved her personal stories. ... It wasn't her generic speech," said Katelyn Porter, president of the College Democrats chapter at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island.

Porter, who is from Boston and works for a nonprofit organization that helps low-income families, said she has not decided which Democratic candidate she will support. "But Hillary is definitely at the top of the list," she said.

Free education to train more people to live off the government dole, interfere in our lives and eventually retire on a generous government pension. Good grief.

Get a job and work for a living for awhile.

The “students” we now have in the system don’t pay their college loans. They go out and buy fancy cars and rent classy digs and then get indignant the first time anyone asks them about paying back their student loans.

I would like to see the ISA take all their tax refunds to get their attention.

“I think just like our military academies, we need to give a totally all-paid education to young men and women who will serve their country in a public service position.”

Ya know, public service might also include "nation building" so these folks might jump in and "save" our military from a job they're really not equipped to do (their forte is killing people and breaking things). That would make it darn near impossible to whine about the post-aggression clean up that's at the core of the libs complaints for the past few years now, wouldn't it?

You would think she was an educator, but she is not. Or, you might think she had a lot of training and experience in health care, but she doesn’t. She went to law school and then married. That’s all. WE hve lots better experts in these fields than she.

Maybe it would be better to send current government employees to an academy, upon completion of which, they would go do something useful in a non-government setting.

I can’t believe she is going to be the next president. This country is in big trouble. Big, big trouble.

Bite your tongue! Won't happen, can't happen. [hackpooeyspit]
This idea fits right into the outcome-based education she's always been for:

During the Bush administration, Hillary Clinton was on the board of directors for the National Center on Education and the Economy. This group was established by the Carnegie organization, the engine driving social change through education in this country.
In June 1990, this group published a report called "America's Choice: High skills or low wages." This report calls for reformers to connect Labor with education. On page two, referring to America's business community, the report says:

...the system is managed by a small group of educated planners and supervisors who do the thinking for the organization. They plan strategy, implement changes, motivate the workers and solve problems. Extensive administrative procedures allow managers to keep control of a large number of workers.

Most employees under this model need not be educated. It is far more important that they be reliable, steady and willing to follow directions (emphasis added).

That's scary.

Well, she is at least interested in teaching others how to get rich quick helping the poor. Afterall, she is the master of the art, along with her husband of course.

If we knew how to work the “public service” system as these two do, we could all become rich like them. Why we could buy an expensive home in Chappaqua and retire wealthy just like them.

I just can’t believe they would be willing to share with others their get rich scheme. I mean, we know it works. Look at them. Neither of them ever had what anyone would consider a real job. Sure, they both have law degrees from Yale. Straight from there to politics. Both now very rich.

This is one grand money making scheme that has been proven to work. Where can one register to learn from Bill and Hill how to get rich without ever holding a real job outside politics?

Ah nevermind. No doubt a prerequisite is a law degree from Yale. That’s gotta be where the real methods of learning how to steal from taxpayers is taught.

"I think just like our military academies, we need to give a totally all-paid education to young men and women who will serve their country in a public service position."

The academy that I am most familiar with stresses several key areas of personal development. Among the more important ones are LEADERSHIP, ETHICS, ATTENTION TO DETAIL, FOCUSED ACTION LEADING TO DESIRED RESULTS, and SELFLESS DEVOTION TO GOD AND COUNTRY. Would someone please explain to me where such capabilities would be useful in public service the way our "public servants" provide it today???

Hello everyone,

While I appreciate the publicity that you have given the idea to build the U.S. Public Service Academy, I wish you and your readers would take some time to learn about this exciting project. Sen. Clinton may be talking about it on the campaign, but the idea is much bigger than her or her campaign.

I invite you to visit the Academy’s website:
http://www.uspublicserviceacademy.org
On the website, you may download our proposal and Draft Blueprint. When you read those documents, you just might learn why the last three superintendents of West Point have all endorsed the idea and why we receive so much support from the military. You might realize that this idea will make government more effective and efficient, not bigger.

I understand that many of you do not like Sen. Clinton. Please do not let your hatred of her blind you to an extraordinary American idea that can help make this country even greater.

Thank you,
Chris Myers Asch

Hello, Chris and welcome to FR.

Just about anything Hillary Clinton is for—is a bad idea for the United States of America. That’s not hatred of her—it’s just knowledgeable wariness about her agendae.

You of course have a vested interest in public support of the Academy—it’s your job and you seem right on top of it. I’ll not slam you for that. I’ll just point out other issues.

I am not in favor of free rides at public expense. Young people desiring to go into public service should serve at enterprise entry levels and bootstrap themselves up. That should be done via private enterprise, not via quasi-governmental Third Sector.

You say this will not make government bigger, only more effective. The reverse, you will find, is the truth. Subsidizing something increases it.

Such a program as your school’s is dreadfully likely to ease the way into lifelong public service for those who don’t have the willingness to earn and excel their way into it—or the willingness and competence to work at a real-world job. In contrast, think of Condi Rice, for example.

And if recent trends are any indication, what are the chances non-Citizens will be given all-paid opportunities?

If several from West Point have endorsed this, well and good—perhaps. Perhaps not. The US Marine Corps has donated $25,000 to La Raza. That was not a good military decision. The Clintons are not known for decisions that honored or respected the U.S. Military—why trust Hillary’s campaign-season rhetoric now?

Government is not the career that true Americans seek to make yet *even more* a growth industry.

You start talking private school vouchers for such a program and suddenly I may be interested. Using existing funds, of course.

Thanks for the link, will bookmark for future reference.

TSOA
P.S. Tell Hillary we don’t hate her, we hate her lies and her agenda.
