    That saying has really become a staple of parenting vernacular. Having young children I hear parents saying this all the time. You think people are cognizant that we have Hillary Clinton to thank for this concept?

    It's just another way to hand responsibility around.

    (If I wanted to "village" children, I'd have had my own, thankyewverymuch!!!)

    You don't think as a society we should aspire toward a community where children are safe and supported?

    Don't you want the children to be educated so that when they grow up and are in charge of shit they're not complete dumbasses? Do you consider the long term viability of society?

    Hillary is probably going to be the greatest POTUS in my life time.

    Followed by Obama and Bill.

    it actually takes a mother, a father and an extended family who care.

    the 'village' and the f'n government aren't necessary

    You don't think we ought to look forward to when that generation is in charge? If you don't have children do you not give a shit about the future of society?

    I think as a society we should aspire to everyone only having as many kids as they can afford themselves with zero public assistance.

    (And yes, I went to private school and got zero govt. help with college.)

    Not particularly, no. Our education system doesn't do that much good besides baby sitting.

    Do you think that children should only be able to count on their family for safety and support? What if their family are killed in a tragic accident or by terrorists?

    So you support full access to family planning and abortion?

    Because they will be paying for your social security and Medicare. Or should we just start throwing old people off bridges so they aren't a burden to the rest of society?
