12/13 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter

December 13, 2013

Weekly guest and political maestro Cliff Schecter explains the importance of the Newton shooting anniversary, how local groups are still working for gun control, how Congress has failed to act to protect the country from guns, why Starbucks no longer allows guns inside its stores, how the new budget deal inflicts further pain on the unemployed, why employment is the real crisis, how President Obama failed by giving in on austerity, Michigan’s new assault on women’s health and reproductive services, why right wing policies increase abortions and Cliff’s trip to the Creation Museum.

On The Better Half: Pat Robertson says letting your kids hanging around Lesbians can make you Gay, how to debate libertarians, the tyranny of student loans, the bizarre story of the interpreter at the Mandela funeral and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
