Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman
Kagro in the Morning "Encore Performance" - November 30, 2015 airing May 30, 2016

Well, we haven’t got a show to re-run from this day last year, because we were running a re-run. The primary season online political news cycle being what it is, though, a year ago might as well be ancient history. So we’ll jump back six months in time instead, to November 30, 2015:

A nice holiday weekend, for most people each day better than the last, is again marred by another mass shooting. David Waldman addresses the facts, opinions and complete BS about this case and other stories capping this month.

Greg Dworkin brings us the polls, which ready or not, are coming from online polling. What is the accuracy and usefulness of online polls?  

Carson is falling, and maybe Trump is too, going into Iowa and New Hampshire. Voters are split (on party lines, natch) on the seriousness of climate change, but overall people are beginning to lead greener lives, and two-thirds of Americans want the U.S. to join the Climate Change Pact.

A newspaper in New Hampshire thinks Chris Christie is the one that will keep us safe. They have been consistently out of sync for decades. 

The media recently started catching on to Donald Trump, and may have a plan for how to deal with his constant lying. Trump, however has the fringe in his pocket, the loser class see him as a savior, and the rest of the pack just holds on, hoping for the best. Anyhow, his rallies are fun.

The holiday season is #gunFAIL season! No, it’s #gunFAIL all year around, but it sure picks up when kids aren’t hanging around gun-free zoned schools all day. David recounts a few recent examples:

7 month old is this year’s new record holder for youngest gun fail victim.

Mississippi Waffle House waitress slain after asking a patron not to smoke.

A man totes his gun into a Walmart and shoots it. A man totes his gun out of a Walmart and shoots it. People are toting and shooting everywhere in Georgia.

A Muslim is questioned about his birthplace, religion, and opinions on ISIS, then shot.

A gun threat closes the University of Chicago.

How many antichoice attacks, threats and incitements until you admit clinic violence is real? #is100enough ?

Ben Carson’s wife, Candy Carson, makes a head scarf decision while in Jordan — inciting outrage and derision from… no one actually.
