Why are there no people at Secretary Clinton's town hall at the Apollo?

I honestly am asking because I thought it would be a town hall?

On edit: Please don't think I'm mocking Secretary Clinton. It's just the Trump and Kasich segments were actual town halls. I was hoping for the same with Secretary Clinton.

Today is the 35th anniversary of the Reagan assassination attempt

I remember it and found it fascinating it's been 35 years. I'm glad he didn't die, despite having opposed most, if not all, of his policies.

I had a meltdown and disappeared for 8 months...

My last posts were posted in anger and despair, and I was embarrassed to return after my outbursts. I dove into a bottle as I was watching my sister die (she passed in December). At the time, I was a member of MIRT and probably broke every MIRT rule during my meltdown. May I ask for forgiveness for my transgressions? I've been here for 14 years this month. I really miss you all.

Warm regards.
Cooley.

Heads up: Secretary Clinton's at the mike now...

I'm watching MSNBC, but I'm sure it's being broadcast elsewhere.

Why does President Obama feel that TPP is important to his legacy?

NAFTA has proven to be a MAJOR scar on President Clinton's legacy (and there's been bleed-thru in regards to the candidacy of Secretary Clinton). WHY does President Obama feel this is absolutely essential?

Jeb Bush Tours Auschwitz

http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2015-06-10/jeb-bush-tours-auschwitz

Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush made an unannounced stop in Krakow on Wednesday to tour the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland.

Bush toured the camp with wife, Columba, Bloomberg confirmed. He didn't invite the roughly 10 reporters from the U.S. and Europe following the former Florida governor on his five-day, three-country tour, out of respect for the site and those affected, a Bush aide said.

More than 1 million people, mostly Jewish prisoners, died at the camp during World War II.

Hmmm... I seem to recall an ancestor of Jeb's was more than happy to do business with Nazi Germany up to WW2. Name escapes me...

Mitchell Brad Martinez: Indian River County inmate found unconscious is now dead

http://www.wptv.com/news/region-indian-river-county/vero-beach/mitchell-brad-martinez-indian-river-county-inmate-found-unconscious-is-now-dead



VERO BEACH, Fla. - An inmate, Mitchell Brad Martinez, 37, of Vero Beach, has died four days after Indian River County deputies found him unconscious in a transport van.

The District 19 Medical Examiner Office confirmed the death Wednesday morning.

An autopsy is planned Thursday to determine a cause of death, which could take several weeks.

He questions the video recently released by the sheriff's office which shows Martinez getting into a van on its way to jail from court.

"At one point in time it looks like they were signaling the person taking care of the video to stop the video," Kevin says.

Before Martinez gets in the van, it appears the video freezes, so you don't see what happens next.

In the next clip released by the sheriff's office, you see paramedics trying to revive an unconscious Martinez after he was removed from the van.
