Again, it may be private funding meetings or something similar, not health related. But H. Clinton is having far less rallies than President Obama during the same period during 2012. See this website for his schedule. Of course, President Obama wasn't a CEO, just the President of the United States.
I do think comments like she looks tired, or he sounds unhinged are within the bounds of appropriate political commentary. I don't think lay people, or even medical doctors, should pseudo diagnose people they have never examined with alleged physical or mental issues.

Wow that's a thin schedule for H Clinton. Including considering where it says public events are only listed a few days in advance. Presumambly she is doing a lot of private fundraisers, or running is taking a toll on her.
And this isn't even the usual political/corporate corruption kind of thing, where you have subordinates convicted right and left, but can't quite get the evidence to prove the head figure was guilty. She doesn't have people taking the fall for her.
Whether or not it is more or less than other presidential candidates (I wouldn't even think there's a fair way to measure), the Clintons are certainly associated with people who have criminal records. Did they take a dive for the Clintons, unknown and never proven.
Sant Chatwal, as one example.
Short answer: yes.
Slightly longer answer: I want to go from 15-20 year old banged up particle board to something moderately more classy.
I disagree. If you are required to vote (show up or provide an excuse) I believe there will be less opportunity for people to be kept from voting by "soft" measures. More exactly, I believe that a person's desire to vote will increase so measures to disenfranchise them would be far less effective.
But, I will concede the more research I do tonight shows that there are lower hanging - more cost effective - fruits than stricter ID laws, such as purging voter rolls of dead people, having states be able to check against other states to remove people who move, ect.
Not having sufficient places to vote and long lines are legitimate concerns. I've had to wait two hours to vote, I can't imagine doing that when having to pick up kids, get to work, ect.
FYI, compulsory voting has been required in Australia since 1924. It works for the most part. You either vote (more precisely show up, you don't actually have to vote), or mail an excuse form, or pay a small fine. In these days of absentee voting, and early voting, it would work wonders to get everybody voting.

I admit to being lazy and not checking. Still, do you agree that people shouldn't be on the voting lists in two states at the same time?
EDIT: OK now checked, they do look a little nutso so disregard.
And voter disenfranchisement is bigger by orders of magnitude than either. That's the problem. That's where we should be focusing. If we can deal with that, then maybe it'd be worth looking at the minor stuff.
That's easier. Fine people who neither vote or file an excuse card, similar to jury duty.
@ Orfamay Quest
At least you moved from "not a trace" to not worth it (if I understand you correctly, not trying to put words in your mouth). I wonder how many people would be caught if we actually looked for voter fraud by requiring ID for voting, like most of the industrialzed world.
I do see the point that non ID fraud is possibly (likely?) a bigger source of voting fraud.
Paying for it on a scale to make a difference would be a huge operation. There hasn't been a trace of it found in decades.
Cost/benefit analysis is always appropriate. And the structural issues vs individual fraud issues is a fair point especially in light of cost vs benefit."There hasn't been a trace if it in decades" were going to have to disagree on.
See ABC's reporting here.

Voter fraud is a myth, it doesn't exist enough to warrant action.
Can't agree with this one despite hearing it a lot. People are paid to get voters to the voting both. Some people are going to take advantage of the situation to get paid, just like tax fraud by identity theft, only easier. Proof of voter registration by ID to prevent fraud is required by almost every EU member, for example.
Now, discrimination is evil, and requiring proof the voter is a voter absolutely shouldn't be done in a discrimatory fashion. But claiming voter fraud doesn't exist only serves to disenfranchise voters.
So how do you make make voter fraud less likely without disenfranchising people? I have no problem with registration, in fact I think it is a necessity to prevent voter fraud. How do we get there without disenfranchisement?
Free I.D.'s to every living citizen of voting age?
People motivated by distaste for the other side may result in increased turnout. People with distaste for both may lead to lower turnout (or less likely - increased 3rd party turnout).

Theodore Roosevelt was kind of a hawk like Clinton, and had the fun bonus of being super-duper racist. If you're going to bring someone back who did lots of good and also tons of bad, you might as well bring back Nixon and have done.
They brought Nixon back as president in Futurama with reasonably good results.
Or to make it a bipartisan critcism, "not Bush" was all Kerry had in '04, also not resulting in a win. In each case, an exageration.
Still, I think most people on both sides of the politcal spectrum would like to actually hear ideas of what will be done, instead of the constant belittling of the other side which has become our political discourse.
I don't understand the all or nothing part. Why wouldn't the UK make deals similar to the US, trade with minimal tariffs>, and no real control over the US sovereignty> Also, I have a hard time seeing the UE pushing TIPP with the US, and leaving out the separated UK.
Of coarse, with the nominees of both major American political parties stating free trade may not be so free in the future, you could make an argument tariffs may soon rise, and TIPP won't be passed any time soon. Even so, Germany sales a lot of cars to the UK, so tariffs aren't going to be too high.

Well well well. Now, let's see how everyone likes his replacement. If it's Donald Trump making the nomination, many many many people will suddenly find Scalia laudable who did not before.
If Trump is elected, we'll get a HUGE new justice.If Sanders is elected we'll get a huuuge new justice.
Whether you agree with his opinions or not, Justice Scalia was a brilliant and consistent jurist. I've seen very liberal lawyers who argued in front of him state he was brilliant. He had a dark and wicked sense of humor from what I've seen on TV, and unfortunately, this type of humor is always misconstrued by the other side (of whatever side you're on- sarcasm is never approved of by any who disagree, bipartisan and beyond politics).
1. Is there a published map of what the Inner Sea region looked like before the Inner Sea? I know of the maps in the Inner Sear World Guide and Lost Kingdoms, and while they extend borders into the Arcadian Ocean, the Inner Sea area itself is not shown. (Or more precisely, the Inner Sea is shown, with exactly the same shoreline we have in 4715.)
2. AP 57 states the Inner Sea is the newest sea, formed at Earthfall. Was there a sea of some sort before Earthfall? Or was there land there, and perhaps a kingdom south and east of Thassilon?
3. Are there any major sunken cities in the Inner Sea, such as Azlanti or Thassilonian cities? I'm aware the gillman have cities, they've built, presumably some on the ruins of prior cities?
4. Similarly, just before Earthfall were Jalmeray and Stonespine Island land-locked mountains, already islands, or something else?
5. Has an Aquatic Kingdoms Under the Inner Sea book been considered? As it stands, as far as I'm aware we know more about Aucturn the Stranger than we do about what's 20 miles offshore Absolom's coast and a few thousand feet below the surface of the Ocean.
Thanks, and I hope you have a joyous and serene holiday.

But you're missing the Christmas special.
Frog God Games makes some excellent materials. There's lots of stuff to recommend, but I'll shout out specifically Nicolas Logue's Razor Coast as a high fantasy Polynesian setting. I had thought pirates had been done, but Razor Coast added some interesting takes, including undead cannibal pygmies and perfectly playable volcano gnomes.
Also, I'm currently reading AAW's Rise of the Drow. Classic (in a good way) "underrealms" adventure.
Are you looking for single adventures (modules), or full adventure paths? Is there a specific trope you're interested in, such as Lovecraft and crashed spaceships, "underrealms", kingdom building, undead demon lords? Sandbox vs more linear adventures? Something with a campaign world, vs something specifically generic to drop into a campaign world?
As for publisher's, it depends on if your looking for character options, adventures, adventure paths, or campaign settings. Some publishers you might want to check out are Kobold Press, Legendary Games, and Rogue Genius Games.
It took me several GM sessions at PFS to get this.
Say you're playing a 5th level magus, wielding a longsword with a +6 to hit bonus doing 1d8+2 damage.
You can attack with the longsword, +6 to hit, and do 1d8+2 damage.
Or, you can cast arcane mark using spell combat, and assuming you hit do no damage, and attack with your longsword, +4 to hit, and do 1d8+2 damage. (Using spell combat to cast a spell with one hand and attack with the other hand; pretty useless as you say.)
The important part: Or, using spellstrike and spell combat, you can cast arcane mark and make your attack though your longsword at -2, so +4 to hit, 1d8+2 damage, AND take your regular longsword attack at -2, so again +4 to hit, 1d8+2 damage. In other words, by "pulling a Zorro," if you cast arcane mark (by casting defensively, for example) you get two attacks with your longsword with a -2 to your to hit.
Spellstrike COMBINED with spell combat gives you the opportunity to make two attacks with the longsword instead of one. You're making a two handed attack (spell combat), but instead of using your spell hand you're switching the spell attack to the weapon hand (spellstrike), AND ALSO making the normal weapon hand attack. In many respects, it's like using the Many Shot feat.
+1. As Rubia states, despite the name the dwarven "double" waraxe does note have the double weapon special feature and cannot be wielded as such.
