Father Son Talk-Media Relevance-Connecting To America-Podcast 681

As far back as I can remember, my son and I have had great conversations. These days those talks are usually over the phone. When he visits, it’s time to put those talks on a podcast. Father Son Talk-Media Relevance-Connecting To America-Podcast 681 is the result.

Welcome To New York

A recent move to New York City and a new job in media forms the backdrop of a conversation recently that is Father Son Talk-Media Relevance-Connecting To America-Podcast 681.

What’s A Media Family Like?

Especially relevant is the fact that both Andrew Davis’ mother and father have worked in media most of their lives. It’s a tough and sometimes thankless business, although fun. We did not necessarily want our son to work in the business. Our friends remarked to us, “What did you think he was going to do?”

Starting A Media Career

We welcome Andrew Davis into the ranks as the purveyor of his own You Tube effort and most recently a production assistant for a documentary unit in New York. We’re a media family, so media has always been topic number one at the table. What are the views of a young adult getting into the media? How do major news outlets connect with so called middle America?

How Does ‘The Bubble’ Reach ‘Trump’s America’?

With most news coverage these days focused on the latest accusations of sexual harassment in the political and media workspace, it seems like we’re hearing less and less about important issues facing the country. In conclusion, why isn’t the media covering and talking about North Korea, the Economy. and technology issues? Has the so called mainstream media (New York and LA) lost towns, cities and states ‘beyond the pale’? Where did it go wrong?

Put Down That Smart Phone And Get In The Combine

We don’t always agree on the conclusions though. In Father Son Talk-Media Relevance-Connecting To America-Podcast 681 there’s a fair amount of ribbing and catcalls across the generational divide. Finally all those discussions at the dinner table and on phones as we traversed the world are coming in handy.

Podcast 610-Davis & Davis Discuss Right Wing Political Correctness

Republican “Political Correctness” Is Now A Thing

Right wingers are thinkers. Open to new ideas. Right? Nope. There’s a new kind of “Political Correctness“. “Patriotic Correctness”. If you question right wing ideas and conclusions? Present a source not ‘approved’? Say something not part of the right wing mainstream? You’ll receive the same pressure to tow the line usually reserved for the left. In Podcast 610-Davis & Davis Discuss Right Wing Political Correctness.

Republican Win

Republicans are happy about their victory in 2016. Makes sense. Putting on blinders can be politically dangerous though. Andrew Davis is a film maker and reporter in Los Angeles. Bob Davis is a podcaster living in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Father and son have discovered right wing political correctness at about the same time. Alex Nowrasteh of CATO is the subject of this father and son podcast. In Podcast 610-Davis & Davis Discuss Right Wing Political Correctness

Social Media

Say something that doesn’t support Trump? Tweet something raining on the republican parade? Insults and propaganda follow. Furthermore, ask for proof or supporting arguments you’ll get only right-wing approved links and comments. Seems like liberty people used to be about open discussion. Sadly, not any more apparently. It isn’t easy to talk about. We have to talk about the hard things. In Podcast 610-Davis & Davis Discuss Right Wing Political Correctness.

Alternate History

Rational right? Party of Reagan and Ron Paul? These days the right has it’s own media. It’s own history and narratives. Ask a question? Disagree? You’re a ‘democrat’, ‘communist’, ‘marxist’. Facts? Principles? Proof? Meme. Picture. Link. There! Shut up. These are reactions usually reserved for the political left. In conclusion we wonder what happened.

Socialist Construct For 70 Years

We have had big government since the 1930’s. Seems like we’re fighting over different sides of the same coin. If Patriotic Correctness demands loyalty to the right wing version of big government how does the right present an alternative? In conclusion, political correctness leads to tyranny. Especially relevant is the fact that it isn’t easy to point out. If you’re on the political right though, you have to point it out. Because most people are good, maybe it will do some good.

Podcast 562-Father Son Debate Recap

Podcast 562-Father Son Debate Recap. Live from Los Angeles, California. Time for a father and son recap of the last debate between the presidential candidates in the 2016 election cycle. Mercifully, at least this part of the process is completed. Now its the beginning of the final stretch of campaigning for Donald J. Trump and Hillary Rodham Clinton for the White House. In Podcast 562-Father Son Debate Recap, you’ll hear the differences between how the younger generations see this election versus their parents. My view is, while Trump was more disciplined in this last debate in Las Vegas, he still doesn’t tell anyone exactly how he will do these wonderful things he wants to do. More frightening is the fact that Hillary Clinton knows exactly how to do what she wants to do. Both candidates offer state solutions to all that ails the nation. One wants to offer ‘free’ college and health care, the other will grow the moribund US economy by getting our allies to pay the US for their defense. The problems are much more complicated than that. Moreover, solutions that aren’t state oriented are more challenging to foster. We’re living in an age when more people in the US are getting used to ‘free’ stuff from the government. Building walls, getting allies to ‘pay’, ‘free’ college and ‘fixing’ ObamaCare are only going to add to the deficit and deepen our fiscal and social problems. This is why I say the current two-party system, stepped in old thinking, has produce two of the most ill suited candidates in modern history, perhaps in all US History. My son, Andrew Davis, has some slightly different views and he presents them quite well. All in all it was probably as substantive a debate as we’re going to get from Trump and Clinton. Our analysis touches on the debate, the style of the candidates, some of the current state by state polling, foreign policy, aid to allies and foreign trade. Sponsored by X Government Cars.
