Hippie[edit]

To JayJasper (talk).

The article of French version is considerably shorter than English version, but hippie is described. May I describe it? --Sérgio Itigo (talk) 16:55, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

To Calidum (talk).
The description of hippie is important in understanding the background of his repeated scandals. --Sérgio Itigo (talk) 16:47, 12 October 2015 (UTC)
The description of hippie is important in understanding the background of his repeated scandals Please don't confuse your original research with reliably-sourced facts. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 18:13, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Also you are edit-warring to add a completely made-up fact: He was a hippie until the early 1970s. using as source: "<ref>[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/quora/where-and-how-was-the-bil_b_1929173.html Where and How Was the Bill and Hillary Clinton 1970s "Hippie" Photo Taken?]. Posted: 10/01/2012. Huffington Post." Nowhere in the source it is stated that He was a hippie until the early 1970s.. This is a false statement which you came up with. Do not reinsert this type of false statements to this article or in any other article because you risk temporary suspension of your editing privileges. Δρ.Κ. λόγοςπράξις 18:29, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA)[edit]

I'd like to know why the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA) is not mentioned in this article. It has been characterized as a "major welfare reform". President Bill Clinton signed PRWORA into law in 1996. Earlier (in the 1992 presidency campaign) he has promised to "end welfare as we have come to know it", which was fulfilled by this act. It makes me wonder why the PRWORA is not mentioned because it led to a major change in society, and there is still debate in the media and the public about this act. (See here or here).--TheRandomIP (talk) 12:08, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

The second sentence of the second paragraph starts with "Aged 46" but should read "At age 46". "Aged" is used to refer to the age at which someone died. 47.32.12.94 (talk) 03:44, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

i question the statement[edit]

To stop the ethnic cleansing and genocide and later in the paragraph genocide statement is being refuted.. so maybe better to state 'alleged genocide' ? 178.148.10.191 (talk) 00:19, 10 December 2015 (UTC)

Likelihood[edit]

What is the unlikely-part about "Clinton registered for the draft and received a high number (311), meaning that those whose birthdays had been drawn as numbers 1 to 310 would have to be drafted before him, which was unlikely."? Does the mere oddness of the number 311 make it unlikely.... Was it unlikely that Clinton registered for the draft.... Or was it unlikely that Clinton received a high number? No, those who had birthdays drawn as numbers 1 to 310 would be more likely to be drafted before him. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 144.183.224.2 (talk) 22:59, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Good catch. That was poorly worded and I have changed it. Vyselink (talk) 00:11, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
