Evaluating Clinton’s presidency as heroic is no longer a given, however. After the bursting of the dot-com bubble in 2000, the corporate scandals of the Enron period, and the collapse of the real estate racket, our view of the prosperous Nineties has changed quite a bit. Now we remember that it was Bill Clinton’s administration that deregulated derivatives, that deregulated telecom, and that put our country’s only strong banking laws in the grave. He’s the one who rammed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) through Congress and who taught the world that the way you respond to a recession is by paying off the federal deficit. Mass incarceration and the repeal of welfare, two of Clinton’s other major achievements, are the pillars of the disciplinary state that has made life so miserable for Americans in the lower reaches of society. He would have put a huge dent in Social Security, too, had the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal not stopped him. If we take inequality as our measure, the Clinton administration looks not heroic but odious.

The good/not so good times

Daaaam, this guys sounds like the sexiest character in a conservative's wet dream.

So apparently today at the Arizona Trump rally, a supporter punched and kicked a protester as he was being escorted out by police.  The twist is that the incident involved a black Trump supporter beating the crap out of a white protester.  

I do have to say that these violent incidents at Trump rallies are breaking down barriers and crushing stereotypes.

I cannot repeat what I feel about that black guy supporting trump.  I will end this post with how I feel about this in general, sad.

At least he's not a typical millennium democrat that wants riots and thinks everything is deserved to em.

CNN's been covering the protestors at Trump rallies in California.  These people are out of control - blocking the road to keep Trump for entering the rally, setting stuff on fire, and destroying a police car.  There's no escuse for what they're doing.

They're doing their cause more harm than good.

How many of those protesters are illegals? I bet more than half. 

Not sure of that answer but, we know many of these protesters are being ginned up for an hourly wage, where many of them cannot even answer why they are anti-Trump when asked the question.  Positively a pathetic ploy by the left to try and destroy his candidacy, by any means necessary, and it's not working.

it amazes me how our leaders apparently have no issue with people who may or may not be citizens/residents waving flags of another country and assaulting American citizens and taking away their rights of free speech and assembly. 

Which leaders? Most voters view the other party's nominee as a monster and his/her supporters as high-functioning zombies. Obama is seen as either a complete imbecile or a corporatist shill that bombs kids just like his predecessor. Democrats won't come down on members of a necessary demographic and any anti-Latino sentiment serves Trump's campaign, especially if he doesn't have to say anything really inflammatory anymore that can be used to say he incited a recent incident directly. Protests that seem to lack self-awareness or a basic understanding of what is free speech vs oppression of the speech of others is just part of the landscape now.

leaders meaning politicians who hold a position or are running for one. 

you aren't saying anything I don't know....the point is why in the **** would we elect leaders who allow this to go on? I don't care if it is a Republican or Democrat candidate...this should not be allowed

and why isn't the Democratic leadership not calling out these protesters who are assaulting citizens and police as well as undermining the Constitution?

They did. John Podesta called it out yesterday. He is HFA's chair.

Lets also not forget that HRC and Bill get protested by the same groups. These are Bernie supporters or anarchists.

HRC supprters having to do the walk of shame between protesters.
