I'll admit the headline for today's show would suggest the news is all over the place, and a lesser host might have trouble tieing in all of the different stories into something coherent. I, however, am NOT your typical host.
Listening to the Pundits talk about Trumps win in New York, and you'd think he already won the nomination. But Cruz isn't finished. It is true that he's not going to secure the delegates needed to win the nomination, but it was never about getting the 1,237 for Cruz. It was always about keeping Trump from getting there.
This has been the most exciting presidential election of my life, and yet I am already growing weary of the commentary. I'm ready to get to the convention and see what happens.
The rest of the show is dedicated to the current oil glut and the financial problems it's creating for welfare states like Saudi Arabia. All signs point to lower oil prices for the foreseeable future, and that's good for consumers.
Finally, I wanted to at least discuss the 12k layoffs at Intel. There are a lot of people waking up today and realizing they don't have a way to feed their families. If you're not sure how you would survive if you lost your job, it's time to start preparing for that potential outcome. The next recession will come whether you like it or not. Don't become a statistic.
