United States-Emergency-Spectacle-Bob Davis Podcast 807

I am so sick of the media speculating on what’s ‘about’ to happen and predicting the future these days. So when something actually happens it’s worth talking about. Learn more in United States-Emergency-Spectacle-Bob Davis Podcast 807.

Trump Loves Bombshells and So Does The Media

Moreover when it’s a bombshell that triggers uproar from all sides of the so called political spectrum, it’s news.

All About Trump

The president has been talking about declaring an emergency for weeks. In addition there have been rumors his unhappiness with a legislative compromise that netted only about one fifth of what he wanted for his ‘big beautiful wall’ on the southern US border. It’s been a spectacle. It’s about to become a most noteworthy example of a political dumpster fire.

Can He Really Do That?

Especially relevant is the question of whether the president can actually declare an emergency to build a border wall. Obviously the Administration thinks so. There are currently thirty states of emergency already declared by presidents going back to Jimmy Carter. This will be number 31. We’ll talk about in United States-Emergency-Spectacle-Bob Davis Podcast 807.

All About The Approval Rating

There will be court challenges and lots of and lots of news coverage. Here’s the thing. Immigration and the border wall is a good issue for the president. Already some polls have his approval rating over fifty percent. As to whether a wall will actually work? I guess that remains to be seen.

Big Spending Big Government Republicans

Lost in the shuffle is a new budget bill that substantially increases federal spending. With the national debt at 22 trillion and more than 100 percent of the nation’s GDP you could call Trump President Donald Baines Nixon. With this spending bill you could call him Donald Barack Trump. (Editor’s Note: I refer to the debt of the US as the Budget Deficit which is probably somewhere around half a trillion. The 22 trillion dollar figure is in actuality the total debt of the US, currently at about 105 percent of the country’s GDP).

So Long Suckas

Suddenly the guy many republicans thought was ‘conservative’ is taking fire from the right as well as the left.

Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans

These days when it comes to podcasting milestones should be marked. My first podcast was in 2009. It’s most noteworthy that I have supported myself with a single podcast since 2013. Learn more in Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans.

Eight Hundred Podcasts

First of all after eight hundred podcasts I’ve done just about every crazy idea I can think of. I have never had a problem creating content or finding things to talk about. It is a creative challenge to come up with fresh ideas and venues for each podcast. Something I take very seriously. Here’s the Dillinger Podcast. And, here’s the Bonnie and Clyde Podcast.

Content Creators Business Challenge

Especially relevant for podcasters is the business challenge we face as independent content creators. Sure, if you’re famous there’s plenty of cash and help to put up a successful podcast.

Hardscrabble Media

In contrast the people close to my heart are the independent creators. I like to think of us as the hardscrabble farmers of the media ecosystem. Find out how it is for us in Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans.

Blog Page For Podcasts

Finally there have been a lot of changes at the Bob Davis Podcasts since the first podcast. The blog page is a full strength resource with blogs and links to my research for every podcast. Moreover I have committed myself to refusing to endorse, or fight for a point of view when it comes to politics.

No Shouting

In conclusion I find the social implications of policy far more interesting than joining the crowd shouting at listeners and subscribers about what they should believe and what they ‘should’ do. Do whatever you want. Believe what you will and more power to you!

Future Fun

2019 and 2020 will be big years for this podcast. Once I reach business goals the fun begins on the road. More about that later. Thanks to all of you for your support, subscriptions, and listening and especially sponsorships.

You will never know how much I appreciate it.

Organic Work Builds Future-Business Networking-Bob Davis Podcast 778

These days you don’t often hear the question, what do you spend your time doing? For many it’s especially relevant due to disillusionment with politics. We’ll talk about it in Organic Work Builds Future-Business Networking-Bob Davis Podcast 778.

Organic Work

The concept of Organic Work is a thing. English philosopher Herbert Spencer coined the term in relation to the effort of Poles to build a nation back in the day.

Whipsaw Politics Is Exhausting

I like the term Organic Work. I think it applies to our time and to our whipsaw politics. Many of the people I know are sick of it all. Moreover they hail from all parts of the supposed ‘political spectrum‘.

All Is Not Well In American Business

I have come to the conclusion that all is not well in business in America. There are many things that don’t work as well as we think they do. In addition I believe among the armies of workers and managers at some of our big companies, there are many who don’t do much of anything.

In Our Blood?

We’re taught that capitalism and democracy are ‘in our blood’ as Americans. I submit that democracy and capitalism take work to create, and work to hang on to. I don’t think it’s anyone’s birthright. It isn’t ‘in our blood’.

Work versus Politics

If you think about it we’re building the future in the present. How are we doing? Finally over the years I have exhorted people to ‘get involved in politics if you don’t like it’. For some ‘politics’ has become their ‘work’. Have they made a difference? My questions about the effect of that involvement is most noteworthy in this podcast.

Business Networking

In conclusion my work is the business of podcasting. There are some lessons in this podcast about podcasting. More importantly in the last year I have learned a lot of lessons about life through business networking. Thanksgiving kicks off a season of family and reflection. It’s also a good time to reflect on our work, and the nature of work.
