PG31: More Shootings, Guantanamo to Stay Open, Voting Felons, ‘Greedy’ Companies & the U.S. Tax Code, and FDR’s Bold Thanksgiving Move

This week starts off as it has too many times before – with discussion of yet another mass shooting, the latest tragedy being at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Guys also talk about the recently passed defense authorization bill that keeps the Guantanamo Bay prison open and makes President Obama’s executive order banning ‘enhanced interrogation’ a law. (Meaning that if Donald Trump wants to torture prisoners there should he win the presidency, he’ll have to do it illegally – not that that would be much of a deterrent to him.) Mike and Jay also discuss Kentucky governor Steve Beshear’s executive order restoring voting rights to 140,000 nonviolent felons who have served their time, so-called greedy companies and the dysfunctional U.S. tax code, and the time FDR moved Thanksgiving and some Republicans went completely nuts in response.
