After a transgendered teen committed suicide after being sent to a gay conversion camp, President Obama decided to push for state laws banning the practice of gay conversion therapy for minors.

Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Thousands of Turkish students signed a petition to build a Jedi temple on their university’s campus after more and more Islamic mosques were built on the campus.

The Kardashians have arrived to Armedia to a tremendous welcome from the local citizens. Ana is surprised by the warm reception of Kim, considering their extreme conservative beliefs. Cenk talks about what fame will do to people. Researchers have tried determining the true age of happiness. One app called Happify figured that 53 years old is the worst point, with ages 18 and 85 being the highest points of happiness. Cenk gives his explanation. A survey determined that people who enjoy grilled cheese are more likely to have sex more often. Ana talks about how cheese lovers are adventurous. A teacher was busted for grooming and having sex with a 17 year old boy at the school she taught at. The judge sentenced her to only 30 days in jail because she dangled “candy” in front of the boy and he “jumped on that candy.” Cenk and Ana disagree over the standards on teachers that have sex with their students.

Hour 1: Cenk and John Iadarola. Rand Paul has announced his bid for President in 2016 as a different kind of Republican candidate. John outlines the radically insane cuts included in his proposed budgetary agenda. His cuts to foreign assistance to countries like Israel indicate his label as a Libertarian. The problem with those cuts is that he backpedaled on previous tough statements on Israeli aid. Tax credits for poor and lower class citizens would be eliminated as well. Rand Paul’s campaign website sells several humorous products for your everyday libertarian.
