I'm going to warn you this is not the best show I've ever done. It's probably my worst. We had a host of Monday issues starting with audio problems. It threw off my game, and I never recovered. It's one of the downsides to doing a live show.
The good new is, tomorrow's a new day so we'll write this one off as a loss and move one. (I'm sure you're dying to listen now. )
Today on the show we talk the lottery and gambling in general. I did a poor job of explaining it, but the point I was attempting to make is that although gambling is fun and, lotteries are a viable way to pay for necessary and constitutional functions of government it doesn't change the fact that I find the act of preying on the emotional desire of the poorest among us toe be a less than honorable way to raise revenue.
Then it's on the Clinton email scandal. The FBI just released new emails and said they contain 66 new violations of the law. Will this woman ever see the inside of a prison? Not unless she's visiting a pen pal.
Finally, we talk a little about the economics behind low oil prices. In economics, there are no good or bad choices. There are just choices.
Thanks for listening,
