Gettysburg-Real Cost of Civil War-Bob Davis Podcast 735

These days commentators use sexy titles for their blogs, articles and on-air commentary. It needs to be said sometimes these guys go too far. Find out how in Gettysburg-Real Cost of Civil War-Bob Davis Podcast 735.

Use ‘Civil War’ In Your SEO Title

Civil War‘ is working its way back into the current American political discourse because it sells.

At least three so called pundits recently suggested there will be ‘another Civil War’ if democrats don’t ‘win’ the midterm elections this year.

Battle Of Gettysburg

So it is most noteworthy we remember a Fourth of July in 1863.

During those days in 1863 men who spoke the same language killed and maimed more than fifty thousand of their fellow citizens. Get the details in Gettysburg-Real Cost of Civil War-Bob Davis Podcast 735.

One Million Killed

Especially relevant; the bloodletting went on for two more years. Our real Civil War was a disaster for this country. It took one hundred years for the American South to begin to fully recover. We are still dealing with the aftermath of that war in this country. One million people were killed when we the whole country had a population of only 31 million. In terms of population our most costly war.

All because politicians couldn’t solve a problem.

War Is Not A Protest

War is not a protest. It is not an expression of outrage. A sit in. Blocking the highway. Civil War isn’t a bunch of people shouting someone out of a restaurant or refusing to bake a cake.

War Means Killing

War is a state of armed conflict. In war the most ruthless combatant eliminates his enemy’s will to fight. This is done by killing or maiming as many of the so called enemy as possible, and destroying the means of production. People and property do not do well in war. Worse in a civil war.

Civil War Is No Joke

Civil War is much more bloody than a conflict between sovereign state actors.

In short, civil war is no joke.

Outrage

It is an outrage for talk show hosts and pundits to suggest we in the United States are already in a state of Civil War. It’s folly that honest disagreements about policy and personalities are characterized in such a lazy and irresponsible manner.

Chaos Would Be The Norm

If we did have another civil war in America the cost would be enormous

Chaos would be the norm throughout the world.

In conclusion I can only ask those who like to say we’re ‘in a civil war’…

Is this the world you want to bequeath to your children?

Franken Resigns-GOP Celebrates-Sexual Politics Rules-Podcast 683

Minnesota Senator Al Franken announced his impending resignation on December 7th, 2017. A can of worms popped open for both political parties as Minnesota and National Republicans and Democrats try to figure out the aftermath. We’ll talk about it in Franken Resigns-GOP Celebrates-Sexual Politics Rules-Podcast 683.

Welcome To The Age Of American Ignorance

These days people wonder what has happened to American politics. To answer that question, one need only to turn to social media. What passes for political discourse these days is nothing more than ignorant shouting, name calling and demanding that they all get what they want right now.

Garbage In Garbage Out

Especially relevant is what happens when a real crisis develops. A Tax Reform package. The aftermath of the resignation of a senator. Moreover what passes for ‘news’ on biased platforms is garbage. We’ll try to balance that in Franken Resigns-GOP Celebrates-Sexual Politics Rules-Podcast 683.

Minnesota As Political Ground Zero In 2018

Minnesotans can look forward to an especially hot political season, starting in January 2018. There will certainly be two senate seats up for grabs in 2018 and one in 2020. With a close race for republicans in Alabama the senate and future of the country hangs in the balance. Why is Franken delaying his departure? Who will his replacement be?

Thermidor II

Finally, a cautionary note. In conclusion a podcaster wonders whether the politics of personal destruction has become a little like the aftermath of the French Revolution. A mob sending shocked victims to the gallows. In this case, the gallows of public opinion. While not defending whatever the accused have been accused of, it is true that they have not been able to face their accusers in a court where they have a chance to present a defense and question the character of their accused, the way their character has been questioned.

This does not end well. Just sayin’

(Editor’s Note: Some people have wondered how the governor would ‘appoint himself’ to be the next senator from Minnesota. The governor resigns and the Lieutenant Governor then appoints the former governor to the senate. In 1976 Minnesota governor Wendell Anderson resigned to be appointed to the senate by Lieutenant Governor Rudy Perpich. The DFL suffered a stinging defeat at the next election. This defeat was ever after called ‘The Minnesota Massacre‘.)

World Ends On September 23rd 2017 Doom Overdrive-Podcast 664

You Tube Doom Peddlers are on overdrive. Millions have now seen videos touting a September Saturday as the day the world will end. A planetary line up and position of some key constellations on that date prove it. Find out what they say in World Ends On September 23rd 2017 Doom Overdrive-Podcast 664.

Virgo and Leo constellations will be over Israel and the mysterious planet Nibiru will collide with the earth. The recent eclipse over the United States on August 21st, 2017 opened the door. When the collision occurs on September 23rd, the ‘tribulation’ will begin. The Anti Christ will emerge. It will all culminate after another solar eclipse across the United States in April of 2024.

Welcome To The You Tube World Of Doom

Christian ‘numerologists’. Christian ‘Astrologers’. Evangelist prognosticators. Slickly produced ten and thirty minute videos that make Alex Jones look boring. As we approach the big day, all of this is reaching a crescendo. Romp through a dark wonderland in World Ends On September 23rd 2017 Doom Overdrive-Podcast 664.

Everything Proves It

Movies and TV Shows all have bizarre references to September 23rd. The Yellowstone Caldera is acting weird. Hurricanes. Forest Fires. Pope visits. These things have never happened before! Illuminati symbols. For God’s Sake! Trump is president! All signs we’re on a runaway train to fire and destruction! In World Ends On September 23rd 2017 Doom Overdrive-Podcast 664.

Dark Side of Humanity

We’ve been watching shows like The Walking Dead for years. What would it be like if it all went to hell? Is it possible that without really knowing it, we’re predicting something? Communicating our fears and concerns about ‘something’ subliminally through all these different media?

Collective Consciousness

Carl Jung said our individual unconscious mind is connected to a larger collective consciousness. The collective consciousness communicates in dreams and symbols. Maybe what some see as the end of the world is something even more significant. A change in the way we think. Listen to World Ends On September 23rd 2017 Doom Overdrive-Podcast 664.

We Think They’re On It

We’re taught to think the government and big corporations are ‘on it’ but small mistakes are often ignored until they cascade to disaster. Every major development in human history has been accompanied with sometimes violent change which seemed unpredictable. We’re almost never ready for that kind of change.

Judge For Yourself

You’ll hear many of the biggest predictions and predictors in this podcast, plus a few that aren’t so big. In many ways it’s a slice of Americana. See you next week. Oh wait!
