Trump State Of The Union-America’s Back-FBI-Russia-Economy Booming-Podcast 697

First of all, the state of the union message used to be a letter. These days you’d think it is the Grammys, Golden Globes or the Oscars. In addition it’s a national event. We’re ‘supposed’ to watch. In Trump State Of The Union-America’s Back-FBI-Russia-Economy Booming-Podcast 697.

America Is Back

Trump’s says the Economy Is Booming and America is Back. Really? Since when is 2.6 percent GDP growth a booming economy?

Wall Street Is Main Street

Furthermore during the Obama presidency republicans used to say ‘Main Street Isn’t Wall Street‘. Now that republicans are in power suddenly main street IS wall street. Even when the market is down.

Booming Roaring Economy, right?

In Trump State Of The Union-America’s Back-FBI-Russia-Economy Booming-Podcast 697 I’ll outline factors that go into our old style measurement of the economy. Yes there are bright spots. Much as we like good news, let’s not go overboard.

Wait. It’s Trump.

Go overboard!

The Tax Bill. The Tax Bill!

The singular legislative ‘accomplishment’ of this administration so far is the tax bill. Lower corporate taxes are thought of as a good thing for business. Whether the so called middle class will benefit remains to be seen. Certainly the economic effects of changes in the tax code only a month old are not part of the current economic numbers. Find out why inTrump State Of The Union-America’s Back-FBI-Russia-Economy Booming-Podcast 697.

Executive Orders!

Trump supporters like to tout his executive orders. Many of these don’t do more than tell cabinet departments think differently. Most importantly Trump is issuing far fewer regulations. Have these actions produced economic results?

Witch Hunts Galore

Especially relevant are investigations on Russia and the FBI. The truth is none of this has had any real impact on the day to day business in the rest of the country and have failed to yield conclusive results so far.

Distractions Are The Order Of The Day

Welcome to life in America at the dawn of a technology revolution. This one makes the industrial revolution look like the middle ages. As it gathers speed every tenet of government and society will be challenged. Meanwhile we’re talking about porn stars and Trump’s latest insult.

No One Cares About Outmoded Thinking

In conclusion, most of the older adults in this country dream of a time marked by their own innocence in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. Moreover our thinking about almost everything is outmoded. Mercantilism, trade protection, mass surveillance, bigger and more expensive government, and huge debts are not about freedom regardless of which party is in control of congress or the executive branch.

(EDITOR’S NOTE: On February 1st 2018 the Atlanta Federal Reserve projected US Economic Growth in the first quarter of the year to be 5.4 percent. This is a noteworthy prediction and if it holds for the US overall it will be a game changer. 5.4 percent GDP would be robust and if it holds through 2018 the terms ‘booming’ and ‘roaring’ would apply, at least as it pertains to GDP measurement.)

YouTube Doomer Alert-Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse-Flat Earth-FEMA-Podcast 696

The end of the world was predicted for September 2017. It did not happen. The doomers are back on YouTube with new timelines and predictions. Find out what they are in YouTube Doomer Alert-Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse-Flat Earth-FEMA-Podcast 696.

Truth Tellers

I spend a lot of time on YouTube. It’s great entertainment. Some people believe YouTube creators are truth tellers. YouTube is one of the only places on the Internet you’ll find details on the Flat Earth, Hollow Earth, FEMA camps, and the super blue blood moon eclipse coming up at the end of January.

Details The Mainstream Media Doesn’t Report

Therefore I wonder whether viewers distinguish between story telling for entertainment and actual news. Especially relevant are details missing in day to day news reports. Details revealed on YouTube truth teller channels. We’ll talk about it in YouTube Doomer Alert-Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse-Flat Earth-FEMA-Podcast 696.

Most noteworthy are missile alerts in Hawaii and Japan, the closing of Sam’s Club stores across the country and the flu virus. What details are the normal media channels missing about these stories?

Alien Satellite

Most of all an alien satellite has been over our heads for thousands of years. Furthermore aliens have been transmitting information to Star Seeds. Hear what they say in YouTube Doomer Alert-Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse-Flat Earth-FEMA-Podcast 696.

Sam’s Club Closing

While this is going on, the global elite plan to use disease and war to get rid of billions of us. We will be herded into closed retail centers and FEMA camps around the country. Furthermore the flu virus is just the beginning of the end.

End Times Update

As a result it is especially comforting to know that the timelines for the end times and the return of Christ have been updated. With the super blue blood moon eclipse on January 31st comes the beginning of the end.

Wake Up America!

In conclusion YouTube creators show us a side of society we don’t often see. Fears of disease, war, tyranny, famine. We get details we never knew about on stories we see and hear everyday. Most noteworthy is the question of whether this is a good thing or a bad thing.

Government Shut Down Aversion Diversion-Happy Days Here Again-Podcast 695

The shouts. Screams. Lamentations. Analysis on the battle of the century! A government shutdown that lasted half a working day turned into a national hysteria in Government Shut Down Aversion Diversion-Happy Days Here Again-Podcast 695.

Aversion That Turned To Diversion

Especially relevant is the fact that with all the commentary about the pain and suffering from all sides of the so called political divide, adding to the melee would be spitting into the wind. Now that the great shutdown of 2018 is over, we can talk about how silly it was.

Thank God For Football Playoff Games

These days I wonder if there is any better proof of a national delusion than an entire weekend of screaming, shouting and worthless details about the shutdown that wasn’t. Furthermore the details about the numbers of federal employees in each state left penniless and wandering through the streets. In Government Shut Down Aversion Diversion-Happy Days Here Again-Podcast 695.

Surprise! Both Sides Blame Each Other

Democrats sniffed this was the ‘first time in history a party in control of all three branches of government shut it down‘. The week before the House voted to keep the government open on a straight party vote with no democrats on board.

In the Senate, shockingly some democrats voted for the continuing resolution and some republicans against it. Finally while the White House labeled this the ‘Chuck Schumer Shut Down‘ and Senator Schumer called it ‘The Trump Shutdown’, it was pretty much business as usual in Washington DC. Find out why in Government Shut Down Aversion Diversion-Happy Days Here Again-Podcast 695.

Guess What? This Is How Government Actually Works

The stumbling blocks? A house version that allowed so called ‘Dreamers’ to stay in the US, and bring additional family members for one. The Children’s Health Insurance Program for another. In conclusion, there is the issue of additional spending in a continuing resolution rather than a straight up budget bill.

Get Over It…Even JFK Used Foul Language

In the end the president got what he wanted. The immigration legislation will be taken up separately at a later date. What about the shock of a president allegedly using strong language? This podcast has audio of three former presidents using very foul language on issues ranging from military spending to a type of slacks preferred. Listen for it in Government Shut Down Aversion Diversion-Happy Days Here Again-Podcast 695.

Say Goodbye To Rugged Individualism

Finally, this whole episode makes on fact painfully clear. The famous rugged and self sufficient American doesn’t exist. The businessman and farmer are just as dependent on those checks from the government as any welfare queen. Threaten to turn it off and we’re thrown into fits.

Mens Yoga Classes-Body Transformations-Yoga For Men-Always A Student-Podcast 694

Yoga studios are now marketing to men. Special deals and offers abound, in an effort to get more men to practice. There are many misconceptions about yoga by men. We’ll talk about some of them in Mens Yoga Classes-Body Transformations-Yoga For Men-Always A Student-Podcast 694.

Yoga For Men Is Always Good

I’ve practiced yoga in hot rooms for many years so you can imagine my surprise recently when a man told me this was unhealthy. Moreover, he went on, exercise in any kind of heat is ‘stupid’. I had to laugh because after almost twenty years and a lot of hot yoga I am still alive! In addition, I’ve talked a lot about yoga in hot rooms in some of my yoga podcasts.

Where Are The Men?

These days there’s quite a controversy in the yoga world about the origins of Yoga and men. Some say the discipline was the province of only men until recently. Go to any yoga studio in the United States and you’ll usually find more women than men. What happened? In Mens Yoga Classes-Body Transformations-Yoga For Men-Always A Student-Podcast 694.

Body Transformations

Especially relevant is the body transformation mentality. Guys want to be rough and tough. We want to build muscles. Lifting weights seems to be where most of us start because we think yoga would never build muscles fast enough. My experience has been that a daily yoga practice is the single best thing I can do for my own well being. Especially as I get older. What’s more, most of the CrossFit guys I know fully support yoga as a training option.

Yoga For Men Is Intense

Furthermore men and women have different kinds of energy. Certain practices can be just as intense and competitive as anything else men do for exercise but there’s so much more to yoga. It’s a community. The practice also results in a mental as well as physical transformation.

Always A Student

Many guys I know in great shape use yoga to cross train or just to relax. As someone who has always been an experiential learner I never stopped to ask whether yoga is ‘for’ men or women. For me, it was more about what yoga did for me rather than what all the so called experts say it does. Once I started there was no turning back.

Below Zero Antidote-Summer Sounds Headphone Immersion-Podcast 693

Below Zero real temperatures are blanketing the North. While it is frigid, what if you could transport yourself back in time to summer? We do just that in Below Zero Antidote-Summer Sounds Headphone Immersion-Podcast 693.

Where and When is your summer?

Where and what is summer to you? A trip along the coast of northern California? A pool party? Or a walk down a gravel and dirt road at the lake, just before a summer storm? So, due to the bitter weather conditions in the upper midwest right now, almost everyone should enjoy a trip back to the warmth.

Summer Is A State Of Mind

For some people, summer is the sound of an AM radio drifting through the air on a hot day. A summer night in the 1980’s, or 1970’s. Summer is a state of mind. Where and when is for you to say. Almost all of us have a memory from summer. Especially relevant is the fact that your summer is one click away in Below Zero Antidote-Summer Sounds Headphone Immersion-Podcast 693.

High Quality Digital Sound Put Your Headphones On

No matter where I go or what I do I collect a lot of high quality digital sound. As the mercury dipped several degrees below zero this weekend I searched through my back up hard drives for something to remind me of warmer times. I decided to put together a summer sounds podcast. Headphones are best for listening to this one. Don’t worry, there isn’t much talk.

Sounds Collected From Across The Country During Summer

When I first started podcasting I did a summer sounds podcast. Since then with new tools, and more sound, I decided it was time for a new one. Since the first summer sounds podcast, there’s been a lot of summer travel. Much as I wanted to sit in my studio and listen, I realized from coast to coast and north to south I’ve collected a lot of sound. In conclusion, it seems like it would be best to share it with podcast listeners and subscribers. Furthermore, a lot of that sound is in this podcast.

From California To The Jersey Coast

We start in Mendocino County California on a warm night in September. A packed victorian hotel bar. From there, onto the California coast, and back to the midwest. Bugs. Wind. Storms. An outdoor soccer game in the heat. Most noteworthy, thunderstorms! The Lake. Of course, in conclusion, there will be fireworks.

Oprah Winfrey News-Golden Globes Speech-Presidential Run Talk-Podcast 692

Twenty million people watched the recent telecast of the 2017 Golden Globes Awards. Millions more searched for and watched clips of Oprah Winfrey’s now famous speech at the Globes. Will Oprah will run for president in 2020? In Oprah Winfrey News-Golden Globes Speech-Presidential Run Talk-Podcast 692.

TV Star Against TV Star

These days all the talk is about TV star turned president Donald Trump saying provocative things. Until the Golden Globes. Seems like the only kind of person who might have a chance to give him a run for his money would be another TV Star.

Oprah Hits Every Chord and Plays Them At A Higher Octave Than Trump’s Twitter Feed

Enter businesswomen and TV star Oprah Winfrey, accepting the lifetime achievement award at the 2017 Golden Globes. Winfrey’s speech hit every chord in American politics these days plus a few we haven’t heard. Much as the speech was political, it was positive too.

They’re Watching In The District Of Columbia

Consequently it’s no surprise the one of the places in the country ranking high for searches about Oprah Winfrey’s speech at the Golden Globes was the District of Columbia. Especially relevant now, is the question of what happens if she decides to run for president? In Oprah Winfrey News-Golden Globes Speech-Presidential Run Talk-Podcast 692.

Freedom Of Choice

We have the freedom of choice. Therefore a podcast about the political effects of an Oprah Winfrey run ought to take up the question from an objective point of view.

By State Searches Tell An Interesting Story

Most noteworthy are the latest search trends from Google by state. Oprah searches index high in battleground states won by the president in 2016, especially in the deep south. Some of those victories in 2016 for the president were by 1 and 2 percent margins.

Giving The President And Republicans The Fight Of Their Lives

In conclusion Oprah has shown she can play the populist chords at a higher octave than the president. Furthermore she has shown she can move crowds with emotion just as effectively as President Trump. Finally if she can withstand the pressures of a campaign to win the democratic nomination for president, she could give the president and republicans the fight of their lives.

(Editor’s Note: I said in this podcast Winfrey is ‘from Georgia’. In fact she was born in Mississippi, raised in Milwaukee Wisconsin, later being sent to live in Tennessee. She started her career at a radio station in Tennessee. The point here was to illustrate her connection with the south. I just got the state wrong. I hate that!)
