The GOP Budget, Aaron Schock Resigns And The Starbucks Race Conversation

This week, the GOP released their budget proposals and it's good news if you like massive cuts in discretionary spending and a bloated defense budget. We'll detail the broad strokes of a funding fantasia that probably won't pass and will likely lead to some new apocalyptic showdown.

Meanwhile, Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock is resigning his seat, after the public disclosure of his "Downton Abbey" themed office inspired reporters to investigate the numerous ways Schock was spending taxpayer money. But is this the best we can do when it comes to fighting government corruption? Sadly, yes.

Finally, Starbucks has decided to take on race relations in America by asking their baristas to lead a national conversation about it. Are they getting paid more? Will the coffee taste better? What is a caramel flan latte, exactly? We have three white dudes on hand to talk about this, so sit back and listen to us make a sad, blundering hash of unformed thoughts and unintended microaggressions out of this topic.
