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.

State Of Our End Times-Bob Davis Podcast 804

An embattled governor. Infighting in Washington. Raging arguments about identity. It sure looks to me like the wheels are coming off the bus these days. Learn more in State Of Our End Times-Bob Davis Podcast 804.

Politicians Off The Rail

As our so called public officials go off the rails our expectations that ‘government’ will solve all our problems increase.

Over Hype and Talked To Death

It’s especially relevant that the media breathlessly awaits a formality called The State Of The Union, like it’s the SuperBowl. Everything is Over hyped. Over analyzed. Talked to death. It’s surreal.

“Officials” Running Amok

Moreover as these politicians run amok they get more petty every day. As a result we’re not dealing with the most pressing issues of our time. A rising China. Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Data Privacy and The Internet. Causes, solutions and political effects of Economic Inequality. Existential threats from many different places.

What About Doing Some Work. Anyone?

In addition, what about trade wars, economic growth, debt, immigration and the growth of regional and major powers acting in our hemisphere. Anyone?

Daily Two Minutes Of Hate

Finally our daily two minutes hate leads our focus on smaller and smaller things. Leaders don’t lead. Everything becomes an illusion. Meanwhile somewhere someone or something is permanently damaged.

Emotional Scarring

In conclusion have we become so scarred from our anger and frustration we find it more difficult to act? Anger and Irritation turns to depression.

End Times Prophecy?

Are we living out a prophecy? What happens when there is a real crisis because of all this folly?

Spiritual Bankruptcy-New Moralists-Bob Davis Podcast 795

It seems like the talking heads are always telling us what our problems are. The moralists are back trying to shore up their audiences. They are making the case our economic system and politics are making us unhappy. Learn more in Spiritual Bankruptcy-New Moralists-Bob Davis Podcast 795.

Happiness

First of all, who or what is responsible for our happiness? Where does happiness come from? We’ll talk about it in Spiritual Bankruptcy-New Moralists-Bob Davis Podcast 795.

Happiness and Government

Furthermore I was trying to do a yoga podcast. Due to the political and social nature of the topic I have to explain why this question of happiness and government has come up.

The New Moralism

Most noteworthy this week is the fact that most of the moralism is coming from the supposed political right.

Moral Health Of America

Because of Senator Mitt Romney, Tucker Carlson and Armstrong Williams commentary on the ‘moral‘ nature of Americans I feel the need to respond.

Republicans Attack Capitalism?

Especially relevant are Romney’s attacks on the president’s moral character and Tucker Carlson’s attacks on capitalism and our political leaders’ responsibilities.

Republicans Embrace Chavez and Marx

Finally since when do so called conservatives start sounding like Hugo Chavez and Karl Marx? It isn’t the job of our politicians to ‘make us happy’. Certainly we claim the right to the pursuit of happiness, not the right to the condition of happiness.

Who’s Job Is It To Make Me Happy?

Also it is our job to make ourselves happy. I provide some suggestions for that in Spiritual Bankruptcy-New Moralists-Bob Davis Podcast 795.

The Devil Marijuana

Finally Romney, Tucker and Armstrong use unsupported assessments of marijuana usage, rape and sexual harassment and general economic ‘malaise’ to support their points. They say this country is in moral decline.

It’s Getting Better Not Worse

In conclusion things are actually getting better. All the world’s problems are not solved, but it is a shock to me that so called conservative opinionators can’t look on the bright side anymore.
