Political strategist Cliff Schecter explains the importance of AIPAC backing down on the new Iran sanctions bill, why AIPAC backed down, Republicans kill unemployment insurance again, why unemployment insurance helps people find work, immigration dead again? The Bill Nye Ken Ham debate and even Pat Robertson thinks creationism is crazy.

Film Guy Matthew Weiss is shocked Sam is watching the Walking Dead, Matthew’s new project, Matthew and Sam debate documentaries and Matthew suggested the movieEscape From Tomorrow.  

We hear from a real job creator on how Obamacare helped her business, Sam has another session of the “Sam Seder Libertarian Learning Annex”,  A Text From Jon Benjamin, Duke Energy releases coal ash into North Carolina’s Dan River, Scott Brown rents his email list to anti vaccine conspiracy theorists and your IMs and calls.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
